I got an email invitation to join this forum last Summer. It came at just the right time for me as I was weening myself off of another forum that had become much too fractious and toxic. This forum has filled that online social void in an astonishing way for me. It has contributed to my sanity and well-being. I salute you, my forum brothers and sisters, for a place I can go and be relatively sure that I will learn, laugh and feel connected.

Happy Birthday to us all!
