  1. Just a short howdy and all from a poor old Alabama boy.

    Family strung from Alabama up to Virginia mostly up in the mtns.

    Been reading survival / practicing it since the 70's and reading Mel Tappan's Tappan on Survival.

    Now it is just me and my kids (no wife).

    I suffered a stroke but am getting some better, but still make mistakes so if it don't make sense, ask, I maybe just messed up my brain to finger control.

    All for now.

    Welcome Thad - don't worry about messing things up - We've all gotten pretty good about reading intent from strangely worded posts, mine in particular

    Keep it straight, simple and from the heart

    Welcome to SM Thaddius, you'll do ok, just don't use words that are more than 5 lettters long, and don't use compound sentences with more than one subordinate clause and you'll do fine. I already have the prize here for incomprehensibility! ( a 19 letter word...this could be a new site record!)

    I have never felt neglected here.....

    It's nice to know that I am loved, Oscar Wilde once remarked...."The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about..." ; )

    Thaddius....the folk here truly are welcoming and friendly....I have been a regular visitor here for some 18 months and there are times when I have thought...oops...I'm sure to be banned this time....and although we have our ideological disagreements from time to time...there is generally a genuine degree of mutual respect shown by each to the other. You are showing signs of fitting in nicely here. What more can I say.

    Chell, I thought the equation went something like this...
    Conservative australian = liberal american

    But seriously, nothing but love for our australian brothers and sisters.
    You will like it here Thad. Nice people all around.
