  • I must be a survivor in many ways...

Having been away quite a while I can only join in the "Eureka wave" for the LTS section.
Measured by the massive response, I am certain it hit the spot.

Joe, fabulous of you to start this all. OMG .. I am overwhelmed.

We thought you would like this forum and that is why many of us requested the forum.  One the same day that I posted my thread asking for this forum, Ann had sent a proposal to the team to form the same forum and Tim (Thunter) also posted a thread about establishing a safe place for people to share their concerns.  The threads were then overwhelmed with posts and on a weekend no less.

We asked for the forum on a Friday and it was up and running my Monday.

Obviously, great minds think alike.

And it's even a nicer surprise to hear from you.

If Matt from down under hadn't claimed the title of Cubby Bear, that's what I would be calling you right now.  You know I collect bears, right?  Well, you're a collectable and your certainly a keeper.

Oh Hermie, it's so good to hear form you.

Hermie, Welcome!  It's great to see you talking again more on the boards and hopefully this is a good signal that you are pulling out of your recent episode of depression (a place I know very well!).  Everyone here obviously cares dearly about your well being, so I hope that serves as encouragement.

   Welcome Back amigo!!! This is a great forum, isn't it? As an LTS of 19 years, it sure is nice to be able to communicate with others who have been dealing with this for decades. It's good to see you posting again.
The only thing I can do straight is shoot..

Although you do not know me, I have followed your ups and downs.  As a LTS as well, welcome back!!  And be proud of yourself.  It is not easy finding the latter and climbing up to the top!

Hats off!
