East Hill - our official greeter

Just wanted to announce that in recognition for cheerfully greeting new members before the mods had a chance, we've decided to make East Hill a moderator. She was making us look bad, so now she's our official greeter.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Chipcom is jealous because no one would hire him as a greeter at Walmart...

Chipcom seems like he would make a good bouncer at a bar. A gay bar.

I've been wondering when you'd get around to doing that ... I noticed some time ago that she's always in the Introduction thread welcoming people.

Thank you all .

I will behave myself, and even though it's tempting to make chipcom bring in the trolleys, I will go ahead and do it myself, as starting at the bottom is a good way to learn!

One of the most pleasant things aout BF is the dedicated introductions forum that isn't a ghost town. Good luck and here's hoping many more follow the example.
