Hello! It's my first day here!

Hello! I have been reading the forum for a few days now, and today I got started with a membership!

It's a great website, this!

My name is Jenny, and I'm 32 and I live in sunny FL, USA. I was born a Philly Chick, and moved from Pennsylvania to Florida 11 years ago. I'm married, to a darling guy named Kevin. We got married in 1996. He's wonderful AND a fellow U2 fan! We honeymooned in London and Dublin, and he happily accompanied me on all stops of the Dublin U2 Pilgrimage.

I first become a happily devoted U2 fan in early December of 1984. I was 12. the song was "Do They Know It's Christmas" I heard it and saw the video, and promptly fell in love with Bono and with Bob Geldof.

This news may have crushed my up-til-that-moment-future-husbad, Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) but he took the news bravely.

Band-Aid, and the acts involved were my intro to music AND to getting involved and trying to make a difference.

Anyhow, I was hooked as a fan. Then came the following summer and Live Aid...and watching Bono, and hearing the band...my little then-13 year old heart was forever smitten.

I grew up with this band, and I love them. They are the best band in the world, with the coolest fans!

I have seen them 12 times live, and despite the current ticket fiasco, I can't wait to see them in the fall when they get to FL.

Over the years I have been lucky enough to share love of U2, and all kinds of wonderful experience with my 3 Best Girlfriends and Fellow U2 Devotees, Tina, Kelly and Phyllis.

Now, Kevin and I get to share it, too.

Kev and I also do animal rescue work. We have 4-legged kids...16 cats who we love and who are our babies.

I am a freelance writer. I love music, and singing, and reading,and letter writing, and writing in general, and working with animals, and taking walks, and being by the ocean, and going to the theatre and concerts and movies when I can.

I have been lucky enough to go to Ireland 4 times. 1990, 1991, 1994 and 1996. My user name is because Howth is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, and I felt at home there the first time I ever went. I love Ireland, and Dublin especially,and Howth most of all.

Ok, that's enough outta me! Thanks for letting me be a part of the Forum! I'm really glad to be here!

Welcome, Jenny. Wow, 16 cats! You'll fit in well here. There are many, many animal lovers (and of course U2 lovers) in this forum.

Welcome to our nuthouse, Jenny! My name is Trina, and I'm a 32 year old U2-holic. It's been about 3 seconds since my last naughty thought about Bono. Okay, now 1 second. I live near Seattle, WA (by way of SoCal), but I am a Miami Dolphins girl all the way. (Just don't talk to me about this past season.)

Please feel free to swap kitty stories with me. My hubby and I only have 2 girls but they are definitely the queens of the house! I'm slowly working my way to getting more, that's for sure - a house is not a home without a cat. And bless you and Kev's hearts for rescuing those little babies!

And, congrats on getting to Ireland so many times! Please share your stories, and hints. Our 5 year wedding anniversary is in 5/06, and as part of our pre-nup I made my hubby agree to take me there by then! Poor thing, he's a U2 fan, but not by choice. I honestly don't know how he puts up with me!

Great to have you Jenny, welcome! Yes, it's true, we're nuts! It's always wonderful to have someone new. I've been having a blast here since I registered. I still am, and plan to continue!

HI, Jenny! I'm another Florida girl here. I'm 33 and live in Tampa. I used to live not too far from Maitland Florida, when I was in Jnr High and High school. I had many many U2 friends back in High school. Wonder where they all are now? LOL

Anyway, welcome! I'll probably be at the same shows as you next fall!

I'm spending my first days here on PLEBA too -- I must say it is dangerous! I think my husband is suspicious of my -worshipping. It sounds like we have pretty similar stories; I fell in love with U2 right around age 13 as well. I am not as lucky as you as I've only seen the band live once and haven't made it to Ireland yet, but I can't wait to go! I would love to hear more about your animal rescue work sometime -- my husband and I have two cats that rule the roost, and I volunteer at our local Humane Society.

Welcome to the Party!
