On line through a mutual interest group - not a social networking site.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

We still use vp to this day to talk and chat as he's just got his internet back yay!
