Do you sit home because you have nothing to do?

You have no excuse with meetup.com
Meetup has 100s of groups based on common interests that you can join.

We became part of our Motorcycle Club No Destination through meetup.com

Some of the bikes lined up with a few club members.

On meetup there are women’s groups, motorcycle groups, photography groups, Scrabble groups, scrapbooking groups, travel groups, cooking groups, dining groups, movie groups….  the list goes on and on….  You can go to the site to search all of the different groups based on where you live.

At the time I’m writing this there are 76,213 Meetup groups, 7,051,603 different Meetup groups, 6,025, 384 Meetup events have taken place, and there have been 67,635,015 RSVP’s.

Meetup.com is also great if you’re traveling and looking for something to do.  We have a member of our club who lives in Florida, but spends a lot of time working in New York.  He found the club online and joined us.

So next time you’re sitting home, bored with nothing to do – check out a meetup.com event and make some new friends 🙂

With No Destination – we’ve not only made some friends, we’ve made a new family 🙂

The Weeklies ~ Week 21

The Weekly Re-cap: This week we talked about a working dog and a tree-climbing rooster.  I told you about a website called Opposites Connect that is launching soon and a bad date I went on.  You got to meet and learn more about my friend Jessica, we talked about loaded questions, bloggers & baseball….  Lastly I told you all about a fundraiser that takes place TONIGHT called Chase For A Cure.  Be there – all the cool kids are going!!

Cast of Romantically Challenged

The Weekly Sad TV Situation: Romantically Challenged was canceled 😦

The Weekly Schadenfreude: New York State Governor Patterson wanted to put New York State workers on a temporary 1 day per week un-paid furlough.  A judge put a temporary restraining order on the furloughs.  So instead Patterson may lay off 10,000+ state workers.  I bet 1 day off isn’t looking so bad now huh?  If you have a job be thankful you’re employed.

The Weekly Tea: We broke out my Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker this week.  We made some Lipton White Tea with Island Mango and Peach Iced Sweet Tea and it was yummy!!

The Weekly Food: We had some leftover pork loin and smashed potatoes from last nights No Destination dinner at The Mill Tavern after the ride for dinner tonight.

The Weekly Holy Shit Headline: A 13-year-old middle schooler named Raymond Hosier was suspended for wearing rosary beads to school.  The school says their dress code states that beads may not be worn because they’ve been known to be gang symbols.  The young man wears them as a remembrance of his older brother Joey who was killed by car back in 2005 and for his uncle who died of cancer two weeks ago.  The news story is here.  The comments on the story were VERY interesting too!

The Weekly Activity: Job hunting, blogging and networking.

The Weekly Damn It: Key Bank is now giving out an 8GB iPod Touch if you open a new account and do a few things to establish the account.  I’m bummed because I already have an account and I’m not eligible!!  Anyone want to open an account and give it to me??

The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: Sonny’s BBQ (FL), Blue Martini (Tampa), Wet Seal, Funny Spoon, Nerd Approved, Saratoga Winery, Tweetup Saratoga, Hard Rock Cafe, and Mike Keane.

HAPPY EASTER!!

The Weekly Read: Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge – The Book of Mnemonic Devices by: Rod L. Evans
It has things like the old rhyme to help you remember how many days are in each month:
Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November,
February eight-and-twenty all alone
And all the rest have thirty-one,
Unless that Leap Year doth combine
And give to February twenty-nine.
