Welcome, Mary. We’re glad you’re here. There are many activities and discussions for you to participate in. Look around and join in. And have fun! Please feel free to add a profile picture – and, of course, your own gourd photos. We are limited to 25 photos per person at a time, though, so if you want to add more than that, you’ll need to delete some older ones so there will be room for everyone’s pictures. Thanks, and again, welcome. Darlene
