Re: Is this really happening?

Just want to say "Sorry you are here" and "Welcome". This all started for me a month ago, in the same whirlwind fashion. The advice I've gotten here has been the best of I've gotten from anywhere. It sounds like polite talk and "the usual" but the best advice is "C...
