    Humm...have we met before, do you suppose?

    Own a Maine Coon cat, by any chance?

    Welcome!

    Thanks from Friday13 and pragmatic

    Excellent intro, @Arkady. You will like it here. This is a perfect Lefty echo chamber.

    Wow, that's two of us. Well, not the corporate part ... I'm a solo practice family lawyer, in the high-40s. But still, both varying degrees of liberal. I don't know if that's good or bad....

    We seem to be politically aligned. So, Happy Birthday MaryAnne. I appears wishing Mary Anne Happy Birthday is how we're supposed to great you. Welcome.
