There's always some lazy moron like Wow who just doesn't get it. The fun was searching people out and LEARNING something you/we did not know to begin with perhaps. Some of the people I contributed I knew and some were ones I learned of. People like Wow are narrow-minded and shallow, they don't know much to begin with (I guess we learned Wow can at least use Copy/ Paste) and have no desire to learn or educate themselves by seeking Knowledge.

Oh well, so much for that! I didn't google the first one. I don't have to. I have my information stored in what is called my computer brain. Any info I give out comes from my source, me. so as to keep the hounds at bay, 90 percent of what I tell you comes out of me and I have notes spread out all over the house for the other 10 percent. Was Martha Carson of Neon, Kentucky on that long list? How about Betty Jean Robinson of Barbourville, Kentucky?
