Best Friends Forever (BFF)

Do you have a best friend forever? What a silly question ... of course you do! :)
I met my best friend at a social gathering held at a mutual friend's house in the 1980's. I will not bore you with stories like "we've been through thick and thin, and going the extra mile to help", because she is all that. I will tell you though, that since then, our friendship is as strong as ever! We watched each of our children grow from diaper days to college years (this is showing our age, but what the heck) lol, and now one by one our kids are moving to a next level of their lives.

I would like to introduce to you my best friend's son, Bradley. As you would learn if you click the link, Brad (as we call him) is a very intelligent, focused, and well grounded young man. He took advanced courses when he was in high school and started college one semester ahead of his classmates. Way to go, Brad! :) One of Brad's childhood dreams is to have a platform online for people, specially students, to bounce off ideas, get answers, and for him to also share his knowledge on various events and developments. Over a month ago, he fulfilled his dream ... he launched his Totomer ... this site is a labor of love.... a lot of time, effort, and thought was put into this. And of course, he is also blessed with having strong, supportive, and caring parents who helped him along the way!
Please feel free to visit Brad's site, register, and share your ideas ... it might open up your eyes to many wonderful things out here in the cyberspace! Also, please note, this is a fairly new site ... be patient it will get there! We are so proud of you, Brad!

Bradley is a dream kid, every parents' wish...and that includes me. LOL I went to his site and scanned it really quick. Will go back there and take a better look later.

Nini said...

Bradley's site concept is something unique. I agree with Mari that he is a dream kid. I haven't registered yet but I will later. Just like Facebook, Google, etc. this site has a chance to take off someday.

A Best friend is God's one of His most precious gifts to mankind!

we can have ten or more friends but we can be very lucky enough to have found the "best" friend in them.

keep it up nance!

Totomer won't show.

Nance said...

Nini,
i hope you're right about the chance of taking off someday. that would really be a dream come true!

ev,
... and what a gift indeed!
friends support each other and that is what i am trying to accomplish here. i hope it's not misinterpreted as shamelessly plugging it to my readers?

Do you know what? My present worries are my son Sascha, he’s 18 n 19 on July....

Worries? For what, I do not know,
Bernie says, I must accepted it,
Just closed my eyes n ears....

I dance already the music here, but sometimes, my cultures, pinay-chinese, hindi talaga mawala.

Bye and thanks again...

Have a nice day.....
