Welcome from me too—even though I am one of the list's quieter members, I
have to say how jealous I am--and at the same time excited for you--that
you're discovering DWJ for the first time. I observed on my blog the other
day how much harder it is to find "firsts" the older you get--so make the
most of this wonderful opportunity to explore the many worlds of DWJ!
