Hello...I'm new 2 this site...am a single Gay Man...& Retired!...YES!! I live in Concord, CA...which is approx. 35 miles East of SF....I lived in SF during the 'heyday'...(@least it was 4 me!)..lol....Then the devastating Plague came....& changed us all forever....I lost nearly all my dear close friends, & decided it was time to move on.....+ I also wanted to 'buy' a place to live, & that is not possible for ordinary working folk..(in SF). So to the 'burbs I came!....I'm just a BART ride away from my beloved City, & I do go often....
I am an active, participating Christian, attend my Lutheran Church every week, & join many small Groups...Happy 2 have found this site. God Bless...:)

We are a relatively friendly crowd around here LOL!!! So glad that you have found us in your travels. Many of our regulars are from the West Coast, and we have some great discussions here. How did you come to find out about us?? Peace to you, Vanessa :love::pray:

Omigoodness Concord! My husband is originally from Concord. So I have been taken through the area on a couple of brief trips - I wish we could have spent more time in the area since I wanted to tour SF. Didn't get the chance yet.
Welcome Duane. :) I'll second Vanessa's question - how did you happen to stumble upon Soulforce (the "other" SF) and the forum?
Welcome Duane :wave:
Glad you found us. Since you're "retired" we'll expect to hear a lot from you (which is not to assume that, being retired, you don't have a life just that you should include us).:D
I look forward to gettin to know ya.

Glad to have you here. Please let us know more about yourself.
I'm a former Californian, but from down in the LA area; I've never even actually been in northern California. I need to make a trip someday. I also come from a Lutheran background so we have another "almost but not quite" thing in common. :D
Please join in our discussions.
Tu Amigo, Pablo
