Conversation Starters

Well, we're almost there. It's almost time to hang up the heavy clothes and shake off the winter blues for another year. The days are getting longer and the sun is getting warmer. Springtime is just around the corner, and the coming of spring can mean a lot of different things to different people.

For some of us, it's a time for some good old spring-cleaning. For others, it is a chance to get back outside to be active playing sports or exercising. And for all the armchair quarterbacks out there, the basketball and hockey seasons are winding down as the baseball season is just getting underway.

What will the springtime bring for you and your e-buddy?

You could ask:
What is your favorite season of the year? Do you have a favorite springtime activity? What are you going to do now that the weather is getting warmer? Are you going to do any spring-cleaning this year? What is your favorite outdoor activity? Do you play sports, or do you prefer to watch them on TV?

Have you had a great conversation with your e-Buddy about something? Have some ideas for questions that get the talk going? Send your ideas for Conversation Starters to Bill Maurer at
