Hey I just received my mail from Snaggy saying welcome aboard!!

Hows all here? Been a JOT fan for ages and 'yes' should have signed up ages ago but you know what its like.

From the UK, weather sucks and I'm totally broke for Xmas having drank the iPhone Kool Aid.

Good to be here...

Welcome aboard

you will be glad to know that there are a few Brits here, several Aussies, various Europeans, as well as the Yanks, Canucks, and a smattering of others. There is a good mix of young/older, male/female etc. too.

stick around and find that this is a pretty good place [Big Grin]

Weathers not too great here in Jersey at the moment, either [Smile] . Pouring rain almost all day and no end in site.

At least the radar shows what appears too be a TStorm too liven things up a bit [Smile] .

Wow-I forgot how much one can learn here. LSD was legal in the 60's [Confused] , and Jim Jones used Flavour Aid!

Great job with the grammar lesson, Steen. [thumbsup]

*drool* iPhone *drool*. God, some of you will remember what a tech virgin I was when I first joined-can you believe I want an iPhone now?? I can't! [Cool]

I can't believe Steen had to point out the origins of the expression. "Drinking the Kool-aid" is used in journalism all the time, even in The New York Times business section.
