Hello,

I'm not sure whether there isn't a thread about new people joining in. I just wanted to say 'hi' to all of you and to say that I'm really happy to have joined this community.

I hope I can contribute stuff but also learn lots of things from everyone else.

HUGS :)

Well if nobody else will I say Welcome Aboard!!!! Assuming you are of the fairer sex than you must be an improvement. There is a fairly wide range of personalities on board so you shouldn't get bored.

Again, welcome. You will develop, probably, a cynical outlook on the world by reading some threads but don't worry this is normal.;)

Impressed by your profile young lady. I used to teach Judo but otherwise we have nothing in common except being contributors to this mad-house.
I don't fly nowadays but, in common with many posters on here, the less I fly, the more expert I become on matters flying.
In fact as I age, I find that my opinions on almost any subject are the correct ones, therefore I am keen to express them.

Hi, despite my handle I am not of the fairer sex, that was the age and name of my german shepherd when I joined. Sadly she has gone now and I have another shepherd but I won`t be changing my handle to Gibbs5. Gave up flying a spam can last year. Hope you learn a lot from other threads, cos you won`t learn much on JB!

Welcome my Lady to this Godless world of JB, you'll understand why in good time. You are to be congratulated also on posting such a detailed profile, most hide in a burrow somewhere. One warning, no mention of aviation on JB, for some unfathomable reason it upsets the natives.

LadyCPT,

You are most welcome. There are a few old f**rts amongst us, but also some really knowledgeable people. Try looking up posts by John Farley who sadly died recently. He has written some real gems.

Welcome!

Now don't take life too seriously here! You will find that those who do really stand out as 'misfits'!!

Well yes, welcome to JB and the effusive social introductions being extended towards you.....

However, once the revelry about your arrival has abated, you may start to discover this little sketch summates the views of many of the male contributors, probably because they are firmly entrenched in the era depicted, regarding your gender and intellect.

But I'm sure you've had the misfortune to meet plenty in the real world as well...... so Jurassic Blast won't come as any surprise.

Look forward to your contributions therefore as ladies are certainly under represented on here.....

...Bigot.

Don't take him too seriously, not many do!

But then, as I suggested, don't take yourself too seriously either.

treadigraph has 'summed us up' perfectly!!!

Yep, treadigraph (https://www.pprune.org/members/45458-treadigraph) summed it up nicely.

Welcome aboard! Before Internet Brands bought Danny out there was a much more savage, free-wheelin' and interesting PPRuNe, but I got the habit and keep coming back...
