Introductions

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm new to Forum activity, but have been LBK for ten years as today. ( Pure coincidence.) I lost my "bit" due to long-term effects from an accident at work. I call myself monopod, ( interested in photography, you see !)

It would appear from my recent postings elsewhere, that I have much to learn regarding communicating by text, most of all, etiquette and manners. ( Some of you will know what I am talking about.) I don't know if I will have anything of value to add to your Forum, but after reading some postings, I am learning humility. Please excuse me if I "lurk" for a while, and absorb the other points of view. I'm not yet sure whether mine are relevant. <_<

Hey, Monopod! Glad you found your way here! Don't worry, it's not always so contentious! :P

We're generally a peaceful sort, and just want to share our experiences and tips!

:o Gosh, I'm overcome. Hello Shane, hi Paul, hello Marilyn, hello Anne, ( I live in Lincolnshire, but originate from Derbyshire.) Hello Neal, hi Carol, ( not Wells Fargo??) Hi again Gil ( yet another G.Davis-haha!) Hello Cheryl m'dear, ( It's humoUr Cheryl, humoUr! :D ) and hi Marcia. Phew.Hi Higgy, and hello Insane(?).

Thanks for the warm reception, and thank (God) in the form of the professional Body that I used to be a member of that fixed me up with this computer.

I was told that it would be a "life changer", and that was no exaggeration. I used to be accused of always "jumping in with both feet", now it's only one. Lets see if I can keep out of trouble long-term.

Thank you all for the welcome. :) Glyn. ( Hope I didn't miss anyone out!!)

Hi JenH, hi bearlover, thanks for your welcome.

Hello Anne. I live in Grimsby (for my sins). I came here as a career move in 1987. I had an accident at work in 1992, lost job and tied house in 1994, and had the amp. in 1996.

Then real life began!! <_<

Welcome Monopod :blink:

I know you will enjoy this forum...Everyone is friendly, warm and extremely helpful.

I am fairly new here and have already benefitted from the advice I received.

I am a RBK amp since 8/2001 and it has been a real experience, this new life. Strangely enough...I don't think it's so bad.

Once again I welcome you and look forward to your input

Pattilyn :)

Hi Pattilyn. I'm having to get used to "double" names, difficult when I've only got the memory span of a nematode worm.

Thanks for your welcome, I shall look forward to chatting with you. :)
