Dear Mick,This thread is for any first time poster to (optionally) post an introductory "hi everyone" post, which will also get you "verified" (meaning you can post without anti-spam restrictions) once that post, and a few posts in another sub-forum, have been approved.
A few words on who you are and how you ended up here would be appreciated. Or just say hi!
It's highly recommended that you first read the Posting Guidelines:
I am delighted to join your site. Thank you for your book- it has been one of the joys of my past month since I discovered that my ‘friend’ was deep in the rabbit hole. Your writing has kept me amused but also grounded.
Heartfelt thanks and keep up the good work.
