Ok, just for fun. Here's a new poll to try.
I personally never heard of Topix until a Friend from Virginia sent me the Link. Being away from Midlo for over 35 years, she told me that's how she got her Midlo News.
I typed it in, got "Wondering Why" on something and, the rest has been fun to say the least.
Your turn and stories now if you wish. Just maybe so some of us can get to "know" each other a bit better.

Heard about it from Frances when the campaigns were ramping up. Heard there was some pretty good stuff being said. Wound up making some really good friends through it. Now it's part of my daily routine.

I wanted to know more about the town I moved into 4 years ago....Googled it and Topix came up.

It is also a daily website for me.....

Glad I can get "real" Midlothian news.....and not what is (and what isn't) reported in the newspaper.

I heard about it in passing at work. I checked it out and the rest is history. It is nice to have a place that the residents can go and share their thoughts.
totally agree

I signed up a few years back for a totallly unrelated topic. Never discovered Midlo on here until the election...which has brought me here (nearly) everyday since.

If I did not talk to everyone I had a differing opinion on I would only be talking to myself. And I do that enough as it is.

Glad to see you signed up. The same thing happened to me when I went to sign up. It said there was already a "WW". I had to go to WW1. I felt so(sniff) "Violated):):):) Sort of like an Identity theft happened:):)

Ya see TA2 you gave it a second look, "we" opened up your eyes and now You are in for a good time:):) My theory is, you have to have a sense of humor and laugh sometimes. People go through life with too many tears and not enough smiles. So, Smile and enjoy yourself:) I Do.!!
