Hiya

Happy New Years Eve or New years, depending on where your at. This is the first time (and therefore the first forum) in which I've come without an alias. Totally using my own name/identity, for once, instead of some stuff like 'Princess Zappa Star <- like that'd be the day! Anyway, its a new year and a new leaf, right?

My resolution? To write a family cookbook that will take the generations into the next 100 years. I figured why not, I already quit smoking.

Such a weird intro I'm Michelle and I think I've gone nuts because my kids made me a grandmother by the age of 40. Now what's in front of you is the product of being the insane mother of 5 and granny of 3

Cannot wait to get chatty.

A big welcome to you MichelleMarie. Such a pretty name. I've been Kayelle on line as long as I can remember. My real first name is Kathy-Lee, so KL are the initials my late husband always called me. We would have named a girl Kayelle if we had one. I bet my two boys wouldn't have wanted it.
You're gonna love it here and glad you came.

Hiya

Welcome to DC!

Kay, you could have named one of your boys Kal-El, like Superman!

Welcome Michelle!

I'm Steve Kroll and I also choose to use my real name online. We're a pretty friendly bunch, and it's always nice to know who you're talking to, right?

Thanks a bunch guys! I didn't actually expect anyone to be online :) Figured everyone to be at a party or something. Kayelle, I like the story of how your name came about. Very cool.


Nice to meet you all.

Hi MichelleMarie.

You made your membership just under the wire. Now, next year on your anniversary you can say you are a member for 2 years instead of just one year and a day. I'm pretty good at math and my name is Fred.

Ooh, thank you guys so much. This is the friendliest forum I've ever happened upon. Must be all the good cheer bubbling forth to greet the new year. It is very nice to meet all of you! We have an hour till the new year crosses over our part of the US so I should go find something to make a lot of noise with. Have a good night and I will see you all in soon.
