Welcome, John. It is great to have you join the community. Please make yourself at home, and jump into or start conversations, and feel free to share ideas, experiences, and resources.

 

I enjoyed having a look around your first site too - thanks for sharing the link - although I had problems with the second one not opening. I guess that's technology sometimes :-)
