New Yahoo Group for FS Singles and Couples without Children

There's a new (well, fairly recent) Yahoo group for Foreign Service singles and couples without children.  If you go to the group's homepage, you can read the description which I have also copy and pasted below:

"Membership is restricted to FS employees or candidates who have passed the FSOA.  Group messages are viewable only by group members.  To join, please send an introductory note confirming your eligibility.  This group is primarily aimed at couples and singles who practive the 'childree' lifestyle, the preferred terminology to describe people who do not have, nor plan to ever have children. From Dictionary.com: "Childfree - adjective - having no children; childess, esp. by choice".

*Singles and couples who currently do not have children - but might be in the future - are also welcomed."

There are a ton of other Foreign Service-ish Yahoo groups (for parents, Foreign Service employees, pets, unaccompanied tours, serving in Iraq, and serving in Afghanistan...to name a few).  Feel free to leave a comment with your favorite Yahoo group.
