I am very new to this site. I am always a bit reticent about posting on forums but I do see that this website discourages lurking so, here I am. I am a private individual who tends to keep to herself and focus on the job but I do have a healthy sense of humour and enjoy intelligent conversation. I am not the sort who talks for the sake of talking so I really am rather quiet. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Thank you very much for your welcoming posts everyone and I am very grateful for the handy list of links you have given me, JohnnyAnonymous. I look forward to participating on this board on a regular basis. In fact, I already feel much more comfortable with the idea of posting now. I may not lurk as much as I thought I would

Welcome WingedWarrior!

It's okay to be quiet, but it's great that you joined! Even if you mainly just read a lot it is good to register because sometimes here at ATS there are some things posted that bring out an intense need to respond! You will find that the more you post the less quiet you will become. Let your opinions ring out!

Thank you very much for the continued warm welcomes and the lovely flags, too. I am still wandering around, getting to understand how this site works, and getting a feel for the place. I am looking forward to interacting a little more, but am still taking my time. So far, I have nothing but positive things to think about this forum. I do understand the concept of feeling a strong urge to respond on some topics. I usually refrain, but this place seems to encourage intellectual and polite interaction which certainly leaves me feeling more inclined to participate in discussion than I would, otherwise. Right now, I think you are all rather awesome!
