I was a cycling pro for 8 years in the 90's gave it up for career, family...later after divorce and other issues. I took it back up again primarily to ride with my current girlfriend of 1.5 years who had breast cancer, the companionship was remarkable she loves it, she is fit, free of disease. What it gave me was a remarkable renaisance and a desire to compete once more at a competative level. So I am entering a 100 ride this Sunday, at 50 its pretty cool.
I'm very happy with Zoomers and love belonging but now there is one thing that is really bugging me. I know that Ning is charging more for the site and advertising helps to defray the cost, but is it possible NOT to have advertising across the top of each page? It's not so bad on groups but it totally destroys the appearance of home pages.
Hello; This thing of not being able to post a photo of myself on my page is starting to bug me. I followed your directions, but nothing happens. Do I copy and paste (which hasn't worked) or what? Thanks; Gerry
I believe Zoomers could be helpful to Canadians who feel isolated from Ottawa.
We should change and get binding referendums like Switzerland. Then politicians and bureaucrats would be forced to pay attention to us.
This might need a change in our constitution but if Trudeau could do it, we could do it.
My life is fairly hectic, though lonely. My sister suggested Zoomers for a social networking option. I joined. But I didn't load a photo, because I was in a rush. However, my photo has been added. How? Who authorised raiding my Facebook page, or was there some other source? I'm happy to leave it up - saves me the trouble. But I am disturbed by the implications. I have been very careful to limit my Facebook friends, for instance, because of privacy concerns. Please tell me where this raidable dossier on me online is located.
Hi - I have a complaint regarding McLennan Travel Insurance, the group which Zoomers recommends for travel health insurance. We have used McLennan Ins. as recently as last fall. Before leaving on our current (extended) trip, we contacted McLennan and after giving all our health information, we were given a quote and assigned a file number. All we had to do was phone in and activate it, we were told. This trip was arranged in a matter of a few days and so we were very busy with last-minute arrangements. When I telephoned on Saturday evening to activate the insur. for the following day, I couldn't get an answer at the company. We flew out early the next morning and phoned from our destination to activate it. We were more than surprised to find that we are unable to activate it - we weren't expecting them to do so immediately and would have understood if they required, say, a 3-day waiting period. But no, they have refused to insure us at all after leaving the country. We are very disappointed with this company. At no time did they inform us during the original phone conversation that they had this policy, nor did they explain what their office hours were or weren't.
We would like to tell other members of this huge problem so no one else is left stranded as we are. Also, do we have any recourse? Is there another insurance company that would sell us health insurance effective as of the date of purchase, even though that isn't the date of departure from Ontario?
These days, if I go into the Chat room more than once in a day, I apparently get cloned, and there are as many of "me" as the number of times I've wandered in there. What's with that? Most annoying. Can you fix it?
