    Hallo folks!

    Hello folks!

    Back when I was here last time I was one of the less-loved members of Cosmoquest. I was going through issues and took it out on people around me. It took me a while to figure out just who the problem was and when I realized, I backed out in shame and worked towards fixing things. I wasn't a very nice person a couple of years ago.
    I just want to say I'm happy to be back - since it would be rude to start posting after so long without an introduction, I'm offering this post as my introduction.
    I really miss this space, with its smart, gentle and humorous engagement.
    I'm glad to be back.
    Cheers!

    Welcome back a few things have happened in the meantime, the earth cooled, there were dinosaurs, we built the pyramids, and few other things.

    We could probably get a movement of fans of shows that were canceled after one season to come take their frustrations out on the producers of that show.
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    Welcome back. I enjoyed reading your stories about the printing business. Are you still working in it?

    Welcome back, ND.

    How is your book coming? (weren't you writing a book?)

    Hallo! Thank you for your kind replies.

    Dave - yes, I'm still writing; indeed - in the darkest days of my difficulties it was the one thing that helped me focus. The original book is unworkable as a novel; I've chalked it up to a 'prototype' as you will lol and have kept writing about the original protagonist. Kylie is a wonderful character (if I do say so myself lol) and I enjoy writing about her. My latest piece has her working in conjunction with other Marshals within her Service; cops with equal ability and experience to her. It's nice to have someone who CAN be superior to everyone else fit in to a group of equally impressive police officers.
    Thanks for the welcome folks; it means loads.

    SLS still hasn't flown-Cassini's still dead--not much more than that...

    Welcome back! I don't stop in here nearly as much as I used to. Somehow I seem to be more busy now after retirement. And gotta get in some guitar playing in between!
