Again....I am sorry.
I don't have time for such pettiness....so. I will just forget even bothering to communicate. Obviously....you are not interested in anything I have to say....You would rather mention......Colors and type.
It isn't immature.....It's descriptive.
And if you do not want to be told to "get over yourself", I am sorry, but the color and type thing is.......bizarre.............
And.....yeah....in an INTERNET where there are sooooooo many people and so much nonsense.....yeah, I do want you to look at me.
Sorry, again....I don't know what to tell you.
Pandadoll, if you're going to the meeting on Thursday, find me and introduce yourself. My pic is on my user profile, or just look for a blonde with 2.5 feet of hair. I'm always circulating at these meetings, and I'll introduce you to some people if you like.
As soon as you started with the cacophonous kodachromatic sarcasm I stopped reading.
CONGRATS! You have been ignored!
Rapunzel.....do you know Monica Randall?
Do you know the folks over at the ligoldcoast.com message board?

January 28, 2007 -- The number of New Yorkers forced into foreclosure is skyrocketing, especially in Nassau County, where foreclosures have jumped a stunning 82 percent in the past year.
According to foreclosure tracking firm RealtyTrac, the number of city foreclosures went up 15 percent in 2006 from the year before, while Long Island jumped 55 percent. The national rate surged by 42 percent.
"People in general are living outside of their means," said wealth manager J.J. Burns. "This generation wants everything now. People are not saving for the rainy day."
In the city, Staten Island led the pack with a 47 percent rise in foreclosures, usually initiated by banks when homeowners can't pay their mortgages.
Foreclosures in Brooklyn and The Bronx rose about 25 percent each and Manhattan saw a 4 percent increase.
Queens was the only borough that saw a drop, with an 8 percent decrease in foreclosures.
Foreclosure increases are higher in the suburbs - Westchester jumped 44 percent, Suffolk County shot up 32 percent and Nassau County rose a shocking 82 percent.

Whenever there's a jump this high, it's often partly due to something other than what appears to be the cause:January 28, 2007 -- The number of New Yorkers forced into foreclosure is skyrocketing, especially in Nassau County, where foreclosures have jumped a stunning 82 percent in the past year.
- Did the RealtyTrac change its method of tracking, or accounting?
- Did Nassau County's definition of "foreclosure" change?
- Was there a large increase in "crackdown" on delinquent mortgage payments?
- Was there any tinkering with the data or system because of the 2006 election year?
- Was there a huge backlog of foreclosure cases in the courts that was eliminated in 2006?
Ah, the list is endless...
I don't know if I'm acquainted with Monica or those folks because I know so many L.I. people not by name, but by face. I guess we can continue talking about this on PMs.Originally Posted by Pandadoll
LIGoldCoast.com has the greatest compendium of the Gold Coast mansions. If this is an area of interest for you, consider starting a topic on WNY called something like: "L.I. and Queens Gold Coast Mansions."
If you're covering the visitors/general info aspect, the topic would belong in this forum. If you're featuring the architecture aspect, the topic would go in the New York Architecture forum.
I included Queens in my suggested title because there are a few mansions of interest there; unfortunately, at this moment I can only think of the one in Whitestone that Rudolph Valentino lived in for a short while. (It's now a restaurant/catering hall called Verdi's.)
When I first joined WNY, I posted moving, animated images of animals everywhere (lol). I needed to remove some (not all) of my animations, tone down my posting style just a bit. Just so you know that this site is really worth it.
