Hey the single fire fighter group seems to only get a little traffic, so I am inviting the single people to come join extra fun with the new singles chat I started in the group - Chief's Back Room Crew - since it seems more people hang out in there on a daily basis - i wanted to give some more opportunities for us fun singles to visit with each other and gather up more of the wandering singles in this site. So if you are still legally single, come join us, and feel free to invite your other legally single friends and come join us too. Heather B
