I suppose it's time for that first post. Hello, everyone!

I joined MWK some six weeks ago but, on advice from another member, have kept quiet except to comment on others' posts.

I must say, I enjoy the group so very much. On that note, I need to explain who I am and why I joined. You see, I'm a woman. A friend, boy412, joined and I started to read the blogs here. I was so impressed with the comraderie and overall feel of the group that I wanted to join yet felt awkward because of my gender. I didn't want to shove my way in to prove any point, I wanted to join a group of people who I felt would be wonderful to know and had so much information to share. I had asked him to please post a question about how you gentlemen felt about women joining. Yes, I was aware that there were female members already so I knew I wouldn't be turned away but I was unsure regardless. The responses were mostly very positive and I don't recall any negativity, just some confusion and I suppose that's understandable given it's a mens group. Anyway, the long and short of this is that I am very glad I joined and I wish you all well!

Huh? In England we'd say

Huh? In England we'd say "If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck". I could have missed the point entirely, but is a state-side version of the so-called "duck test"? If so how does it go?

And while I'm here, I should obviously welcome Dandelion on her first public outing. Hope you continue to enjoy the site and cute name too :-)

I believe Patchwork Jester

I believe Patchwork Jester was making reference to a line from Monty Python and The Holy Grail, but I'll wait and see what he says. Thank you for the welcome!

You guys are on the right

You guys are on the right track, though I'm somewhat boggled by the fact the Brit didn't get the reference first...
