Default Hello From Tasmania Australia

I have just had a look at the general layout of this site; I have registered and posted my first item. I thought I might play a role in helping to determine general Procedures here in this sub-section since no one has posted in this part of the site yet.

Some people when they introduce themselves give little away. They say things like: "How are you?" or "Nice to be here," and other simple phrases. Others like myself give a full introduction. Everyone should feel to introduce themselves as they desire or not to do so as they also desire. Anyway here is my "hello from Tasmania Australia."-Ron

Thank you, AdminGal, for your prompt response. And thank you especially for the marked improvement you have made in the layout of my website with a few of your internet and technical talents. You can come and visit and have a cup of tea here in Tasmania any time. We are the last stop on the way to Antarctica, if you take the western Pacific-rim route.-Ron
