Who's who in the Serbian Cafe? (66)
I will maintain the list as long as motivated, posting it twice a day. You can post your data as an answer to this posting, but better send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org because the board is cleaned every so often and I have lost some of the data already (please include your nickname).
Lets play fair, no lies! (so you may post your birth date or not!):
Adelaida - May 14, 1999 00:23 (206.172.*) The only thing I can say is that I "hate" what is happening in my country where I was born. My father is a Muslim, my mother is catholic, I am Christian catholic (I suppose, don't know yet). Now, people from there would tell me to say that I am either Bosnian or Croatian. Well sorry everyone, I am from what you use to call Yugoslavia, where everyone loved and respected everyone until, I don't know what happened, but it did.
Aleksandar Vojvoda - Jun 12, 1999 17:20 (152.163.*): Engineering type who used to work on the equivalent Space program to the 'Buran' now employed in the "private" aviation-transportation sector. Assisted in cargo integration of European Space Agency experiments, LDEF. GAS-CAN's, and the cancelled Centaur IUS mod. 39 years of age,6 ft.,185 pnds.,likes vintage BMW's, gardening, and other odd,quirky things. Believes that the best insurance is 'preparedness' so has a small supply of food and survival gear(including a Zastava rifle) just in case Y2K turns ugly. I am against NATO and have had to re-examine my thinking about the "WEST".I would list my politics as "Nationalist"- partly as a reaction to the mouthpieces of the New World Order using this term as a demonization technique(they were, and still are, using the term "Isolationist" also).I believe that an armed society is a polite society ,and the facts pertaining to the US States that have implemented the "Concealed Carry" laws bear that out. If you can agree with most of what I have written, than you can agree that ,in a sense, WE ARE ALL SERBS!

Not particularly religious, but I do try to live my life according to principles and teachings from a book called "A Course in Miracles" which has had a profound effect on my life.

I am greeted by a love you know matter what you do Boston Terrier. My husband is a retired businessman who thinks a great day is working in his garden. I am very glad the peace agreement has been signed. I wish Serbians and Albanian Kosovars an opportunity to choose a new and better life.
