Feeling a bit like a new girl joining a club.

Do you have a special place to start off newbies.?

No not really Susan - I remember feeling like that too.
Welcome sunshine

Here is as good as any, so welcome! I think there might be a thread for "newbies" but that is entirely optional. Hope you enjoy being with us and look forward to your posts and getting to know you

Hi Susan, I'm a newbie of a couple of weeks, mostly friendly place I've found, lots of variation. Think the advice is good - just jump in and enjoy. smile

Hi, I've just joined as well, but am wondering if I am too old for GN (75), my DGC range from 12 to 20, maybe there'll be a need for a Greatgrans Net in a year or two? I've watched for some time before getting courage to take the plunge, but I'm in now!

Hello everyone,it's very strange and a bit scary,this new girl feeling! I'm in Portugal, I'm not from Saga Zone but this seemed the right time to introduce myself.I joined at the beginning of January and became addicted straight away.It seems a very friendly place, mostly!

MrsEggy Greatnan is a regular poster as a rule and provides an endless stream of jokes but is currently in the air on her way to New Zealand to visit her family. We also have a member called Greatgran and no doubt there are other great grandmothers as well. I seem to recall someone celebrating her eightieth birthday recently and I have a feeling that our oldest member is 85, but I am not certain.

Come on in, newbies. Kick off your shoes put your feet on the hearth and let your hair down. You may think some of us are slightly crazy, but we're also empathic, sensitive, helpful and friendly. And that's just me....grin wink

annodomini Wed 13-Feb-13 19:14:25

Beginning to wish I could edit that last post. Why don't we have an emoticon for 'pinch of salt'?

MaggieP Wed 13-Feb-13 19:38:12
