I usually post in this forum when there is a problem or there is something that needs correcting. 

This post is not that.

This post is to say "wow - things aren't just good.  They're damn good!"

Lots of really rich discussion of excellent substance.  And as I read a thread, I'll think of something I want to say, and then see that somebody else has said exactly what I was gonna say - and then they say something I didn't know. 

The quality is good.  Spam is low.  People are very respectful of all the other folks hanging out here.  (knock on wood)

Several times a day there is a new topic that has something new for me - that is the sort of thing I want to know. 

I'm a very happy camper.

I've told four people about this forum since joining and blabbing my big mouth all over.  I wouldn't do that unless I believed in it.

I don't post much because my computer's keyboard is messed up big-time. Just so you know, Paul, I appreciate all of the info and rich dialogue you've got up in here. Smooth indeed!

The really excellent thing is that it's not me.  It's everybody else. 

Sometimes I might be in a group of people where my ideas are so radically different that I really cannot grow - because I'm spending all of my time just trying to deal with my environment.  People are pulling me down.

With this group, not only can I grow, but I feel like I get a lot of help on my path to understanding.  People are pulling me up!

I feel a bit like I planted a seed and nutured it a bit, and now we have a rather remarkable tree that is growing without any further nurturing from me.
