I would like to welcome you if you are new to the Moose. Feel free to walk around and check out your new digs. If you are an established Moose, grab your cuppa and pull up a chair. Feel free to comment at any time or continue lurking as you will. Kysen has left us all a Welcome Mat Part Duex

- Comments do not Auto-refresh. Click the refresh/reload on your tab to see new ones.
- To check for replies to your comments, click the "My Comments" link in the right-hand column (or go to "My Moose"). Comments will be listed and a link to Recent Replies will be shown. (Note: Tending comments builds community)

In other words, if you don't want it said to you, then don't say it to someone else. Respect is an important thing. If you feel the need to not respect, then step away and take a breath. Political debate can be both spirited and
For those of you lurking and being shy, no reason to be nervous. Drop us a comment and start making your Moose Tracks. No time like the present.
