    TGIF....

    I live in the northeast and grow a huge garden every year....hence my nic....lol....This is not my first foray into message boards but this is by far the largest I have ever joined.I am currently unemployed(laid off Aug 27th)so I will probably be posting quite a bit until I can find work again.

    I am an animal lover but not in the PETA sense....lol...I am for a smaller,less intrusive government and have deep respect for our brave men and women serving our country.

    hi, some of us garden....lots of animal people..not in the peta sense here...see the pet forum....and the arts and crafts forum...

    unfortunately no one reads the military section....its like the kiss of death for a thread...but some do try to keep the issue at the front of people's minds....

    welcome and enjoy

    Why do the asterisks show in your post, not in the text window when I'm typing and then show up again when I post?

    Is that magic or what?

    Next thing you need to cultivate is familiarity with the quote commands.:lol:

    Use [ Q U O T E ] to open and [ / Q U O T E ] to close. (leave out the spaces when you type the commands. I had to include them or it would have showed up as

    to close.)

    Have a nice day.
