So who missed me? Anyone at all? Someone must have. At least one of you maybe? I have not recieved any PMs asking where I've been. Noone loves me here anymore. HAHAHAHA! I guess I got tired of myLot for awhile and decided to get away from here. I have been busy around the house etc. So I missed all my friends. I had tired of this place the past week and desperastely needed a break. I got bored to death here. Seems it was pretty slow anyhow. Do you get bored easioly here? Do you need or take breaks from here often? I do and just returned from one of these boredom breaks. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I MISSED YOU! And actually had thought of sending you a message but figured I had either missed a post that you were going to be away for a time or that I had messed up when clearing out 'friends' - when I didn't receive any notification of new discussions from you I actually went and doubled check as I did delete a 'bunch' of friends but no way would have intentionally deleted you. I also put a bunch on not to notify me as they were not responding to my discussions (which you do thank you very much).... Ok that said as to your question yes there are times that I get bored - seems like the same discussions over and over or ones I know will eventually get deleted so why bother... For the most part though I have a great group of friends that keep me busy, active, and for the most part interested. Sometimes however you just need something different in your life rather than the day after day after day same thing. I am glad it was just a short break and look forward to more discussion.

I have to do the cleaning process of friends as well. Accepted too many that just start and don't respond to mine. Some that don't even respond to theirs either. It's annoying. But with this new process of the way we earn for quality of discussions, responses, comments and photos this will more than likely weed out these bad types of members. I get so many discussions that I know for a fact will be deleted in time as well. I hate them. it's not friends that do this all the time either. It's good posters but they don't expect it to get deleted. I reread the guidelines often to abvoid losing points etc. I also have a nice sized group that has great discussions etc so I do keep busy. But I really needed a break as I burnt myself out with a lot of work this past month here. Thanks for your concern as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Yep - I actually deleted close to 90 'friends' that had never responded to a single discussion of mine - I was just having too much trouble trying to keep up with so many new discussions I was missing a lot of my 'true friends'. Since doing that and putting some others on not notify I've actually been enjoying myLot again instead of getting stressed or feeling like I wasn't being a friend. And it hasn't hurt my earnings one single bit - actually the day I deleted all of those I was busy with that and didn't respond to many discussions but had my highest earning day since joining myLot.

I guess I'm not here enough to get "bored." I just sometimes get distracted with other things on the computer or online.

I did notice you were away because I had not received any discussions from you in a while. I always take breaks from mylot because it does get boring at times and when I can't be bothered posting or answering discussions. I think its good to do that from time to time, revive yourself and then come back.

Meeeeeee.... I'm the one who misses you, I been missing your discussion yesterday when I'm responding to my e-mail. And now I was surprised to see your discussion. Actually I do a little break last month for almost 20 days not logging here because I have another important thing to busy at. And now I feel happy to be back from my boredom.

Ha..ha...Grandpa, welcome back. You might like to greet me a nice "welcome back" too. I only hopped back 4 days ago and still flexing my muscles and slowly gliding my way to the community here. I was MIA for many months too. Kind of burned up with the site so I decided to hike off to another planet, lol. Its been a while grandpa but I'm glad to see another familiar face here. With so many people missing you, I'm sure you won't get bored for another few months, lol. :)

I saw just a few discussions from you in the past month or so and was wondering about you. But I also noticed you were active respoding ever so often in that time as well. I love the new sorti "activity" for this sole purpose actually. So what planet did you vebture upon if I may ask? HAHAHA! There's a lot of oldtimers gone it seems as well. Thanks.

I think the last discussion I posted was about 6 months ago. Seems like ancient, don't you think? I was too restless that time so instead of "forcing" myself to partake in mylot, I hopped in to join an online game and was practically hooked with it. Upon the encouragement of Wizzy, I thought of coming back and see if any one would love to have my company again, lol!

Well, I have not noticed your absence since I was also not able to post and reply for about three days. I was conducting some disaster management training in one of our island where there is limited access to the internet. I'm sure that a lot of myLot people who missed you. But as for me, I think no one, since I am just new. But nevertheless, I am also back and here I am back again. Welcome back to both of us!

Well, my main job is with the City's SWAT unit being the tactical medic. Aside from that I am the first aid and emergency care courses instructor in our city. In some cases, I am invited to conduct training outside our city and usually this are voluntary in nature. So there are occasions that I travel from different areas conducting training and safety seminars. Thanks for asking. I have just started a hub on first aid, should you be interested, feel free to visit this hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/lifesaving

I'm sorry to hear about your wife. It would be good if she'd see a doctor, if this doesn't clear up soon. I know you'll watch out for her. I hope your dad's doing better too.

Yes I get bored sometimes, and then I go and do something else for a few hours and then I come back. I have a pretty low boredom threshold so I am pretty surprised that I have not got totally fed up by now and taken a few days break instead of a few hours!

I don't have a boredom problem. It's my impulsive/compulsive traits that do this most times. I will go to one of my other gaming sites and once I start playing I don't go anywhere else for a time. HAHAHA! Just me. But it was fairly boring here for quite some time after the holidays actually. Thanks for your time here as well. Appreciate it. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I missed you Grandpa Bob! ;) I was guessing you were away as I didn't see any new discussions from you, but I know sometimes some people tend to take a break from making new discussions and focus more on responding to others discussions, so I assumed that was what you were doing. I really shouldn't assume, but I did anyway, and for this I apologize. I'll be sure to PM you next time, unless I forget. :P LOL I do get bored on here sometimes, but not so bored that I take a week's break. When this happens I tend to read the discussions on here instead of participate in them. I find it hard to get completely away from mylot, so if you don't see me logged in here for a week or more you better start worrying about me. ;P LOL Welcome back!

Yeah I tend to dissappear for a few days at a time often as of late. As long as I make payout I feel okay. I have made a few bucks this month already as well and it's only the second. WoooHoooo!!! I wasn't even responding. I went through my emails reading all the discussions and deleted them if I didn't respond. In the past week I responded maybe to just 50 or so discussions actually. I mostly respond while I myLot as opposed to starting discussions. But when I start discussions it is usually 5 or more at once. Seldom do I do just one or two discussions when I do them. No need to apologize for assuming. That's your given right. HAHAHA!! Oh I was here just not logged in most times. Like I said I read the emails of discussions just not having my page loaded for most the time. Thanks also. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I don't think I've ever had a stalker. I am too nice, too friendly, and too easy to get along with. I've never said a bad thing about any members no matter their responses in my discussions etc. I try to keep my nose clean of this type of thing. So far, so good for me also.
