I joined ATS two weeks ago after lurking for 8 years or more.
I don't feel confident about posting, I hope this will get better soon.

My name LEL = Little English Lady, I had to add on 01 because I couldn't have a three letter name.

I have always believed in aliens but don't want to be fooled by hoaxers and fakes, the sceptics help to keep my feet on the ground.
Thank you sceptics.

This post seemed to be so much more while it was just in my head, so hi to all of you.

Hi LEL01 and welcome to ATS.

Lurking for 8 years or more, I'm sure that's a record. Glad you finally took the plunge.

welcome little english lady hope you enjoy your time here

I too struggle with confidence issues and that made joining ATS daunting although I knew it's something I wanted to join and take part in, those sceptics are what keep this site good clinical factual thinking
they remind me to think logical

much peace and love to you from a fellow englishman I hope you find nothing but goodness here now that your posting and not just lurking in the background like I once was. I look forward to seeing your views on the boards

posted on Nov, 10 2012 @ 07:22 PM
Thank you for your repliea and welcomes. The posting thing is all new for me but I can still lurk a bit if it gets too scary, just now you can see when I'm lurking.

Welcome aboard, and enjoy the ride!

Uhm, are you saying you are shy? No problemo, Senorita. You'll find something to say sooner or later, and actually, you aren't required to say anything at all.

One of my favorite ATS activities is lurking.

I do hope to see you around though. You seem solid and well grounded.

Thanks for that offer, I'll know where to come when I'm ready to be seen. Avatars seem to get you noticed more, yours is great.

Hi Druid, we met already on the Crete UFO thread, we agreed I think.
Shy is one word, painfully so as a child. I half got over that but there are alot of better words to describe me now. I'm sure most of my secrets will come out sooner or later.

Don't be shy, some of us bark, but none bite. Welcome to the family! Your thoughts and opinions are just as valid as anyone else's, since you think more than you speak, likely more worthy of hearing than most. Have fun, lots of friendly folk about.
