Good Morning, eh,
Welcome aboard, this is a great place to read, learn, and most importantly, make some good friends.  All the trouble makers that have plagued us in the past seem to have gone off somewhere and crawled under rocks and such.  So, pull up a comfortable stump, pour yourself a cuppa or a hot toddy, end enjoy the ride.
Again, welcome.

Hi there "Red River".
(I like your name, it has a nice ring to it.)

Anyway, pull up a stump, have a sit down, a cup of Jo, and let's chat a bit.

Welcome to the TMA!
