Hello Lumberjocks!
I’ve waited on the sidelines for a few months watching, with lots of interest, the goings-on on this site. I couldn’t wait to join! I got a message back from Martin early this morning saying that registrations were opening back up today and here I am!

I’ll leave my intro-telling to my profile, but I just wanted to say that I look forward to being a part of this group!

Thanks John. I’ve enjoyed very much already. I’ve had the RSS feed piped into my Google Reader for some time now… Lots of amazing projects seen and lots of tips/tricks learned for sure!

Yeah no kidding. He’s pretty trim right now and we exercise him at least once a day.. His dad was 165 last time I checked and looks like one of the demon dogs from ghostbusters.

Thanks 8iowa, Dennis, and Theresa. Dennis- Its kind of like Peanut M&Ms.. deliciously addictive. Sometimes you get one with a funky peanut inside, but other times you score and get one thats all chocolate!
