Still trying to make friends here. Been trying in the chatrooms to no avail. Maybe not all that good at being witty and funny but am sincere and a good listener. Am well traveled. Have been all over the USA, Canada, Mexico and Europe. Have just recently retired so am still finding my way what to do with that as I have worked from home for over 20 years as medical transcriptionist for 20 different doctors doing many different kinds of medical dictation and was kept very, very busy. So there was no time for hobbies as I was very dedicated to my work and enjoyed it very much. Hubby says I'm a walking medical dictionary. I do love jazz, the blues and all kinds of other music. I grew up around Motown music, am passionate about that. I am part Choctaw Native American Indian but also Polish and German and know a lot about my roots. (Where I came from). Am a native SE Michiganer. Would love to make a friend here.

Hello and welcome jazzykat.

Perhaps now that you have made your way to the forums and made your presence known here you will quickly find some friends.

Some members are chatters some are forum folk and some are both.smile.png
Happy to help.

Hey Jazzy.
Welcome. Like lots of others I too like music. but I am betting my tastes in music go way back before you were even born.
I play piano. in a fashion. and prefer to play music from the 20s, 30, 40s. 50,s. Rarely will I try to play anything written in say the last 20 years.
I have sang with 2 Barbershop choruses over the years and love that razz mataz
You mentioned Motown music (motor town, Detroit, where it began, for those that might not know)
It never was my cup of tea but I know it was very popular.
I live on the Canadian side of the border. just a little more than an hour from Detroit.
Hope you make lots of good friends here.
Be safe.
Lenny

Welcome to the site.

I am not big on the chat rooms either - way too fast a pace for me.

I prefer to just post and comment on the different forums.

Keep poking around and you’ll find a place that is comfortable for you.

Welcome. I am pretty new as well (been here less than a month) and I am gradually easing into the site.

It seems to me, given the age group here, that people might seek out a "walking medical dictionary!" :laugh:

The way I look at a site like this is similar to the way I look at offline interactions with people: friendships don't just "happen". Right now, I am participating in forum discussions, and in that way people learn about me and I learn about them. Over time, I might feel that I have made "friends" in the real sense of the word. And if not, this is still a friendly place, and I am enjoying my time here.
The older I get, the more I value kindness.

Welcome to the Forums, jazzykat - I hope you find your niche here, as many others have, and start getting to know folk and make friends.
Now you have found your way around the Chat Rooms, I hope you enjoy exploring all the different Sections of the Forum and getting to know the Buzzers who use the Forums.
