I was offered the chance from a friend or something like that. Don't remember the exact hows and whys-all I remember is at the time I was just getting away from MySpace, trying to cull the trash from my FaceBook, and I've STILL not figured out what a Twitter is. So no, I was not. I became active on here after I saw the Muppets promoting "Hangouts." It looked a good tool for my band, and, probably more importantly, for my music students!
