Welcome.
you have had the good chance to fall amongst the friendliest, most helpful and willing bunch of people you could ever want.
I count myself priviledged to be here, and I hope you reap much benefit from your stay here.

*Namaste* and metta.

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

Greetings pererin,

Lovely to have you here. If there's anything you can think of (especially in your capacity as a 'newcomer') which you think would improve your experience here, please drop a note in the Suggestion Box!
