Such lovely gifs, Consuelo, TJ is very talented at holding up things in an amusing manner - open a thread in Talk TJ if you want to talk about what he handles well (!)
Just wanted to say that, as I knew it would, TJ's question thread is getting some absolutely fascinating replies. I didn't want to spoil the flow of that thread, so I'm coming here to say Welcome Dr_Carson_Beckett, who has just contributed a great post there. Thank you for saying so much about yourself in a single, first, post. Please do drop in here also. I for one would love to get to know you better. Languages are my thing too, as I teach French and German. My passion is communication and that's one reason why I love it here. I've travelled a lot in Europe and would like to go further afield (money, ties, commitments-you know the drill)!
I'd like, too, to admire Sandy's, Jen's and Simone's contributions -everybody's! - over there. As TJ said, we are finding out so much about one another, it's awesome! They are intense, deep questions and some may not want to answer them, which I totally understand, but it's unusual in a forum to read the profound and thoughtful posts as well as the fun ones. Thank you all so much.
