Welcome to AW. Hope you enjoy your stay with us.
How do you like your popcorn?

If you go to the bottom of the page to the 'forum jump' you can scroll down and find all the areas of this place. After you post 50 posts you can use the SYW areas to get help there. The password for some of the areas is…..vista. A word to the wise, it would be a good idea to participate first in helping others before you think about posting your own work. After you have been around here for awhile, then post something of your own for help. Good luck.

Welcome, Mary! This is a great place to learn all the things you never dreamed you failed to learn surfing the net for info on writing and publishing! At least that's how it's been for me.

Hi Mary, Greetings from a fellow newbie from the same area. I hope you enjoyed the almost 80 degree weather yesterday. I actually went to the pool. Looks like it's going to be cooler for the weekend.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!
FlyBird, I am enjoying the warm weather but I have prepaid tickets to Mt. Baldy and there's no snow! So I'm hoping for a little rain so I can go out on the slopes.

Hey you got your wish. Hope there is enough snow from the rain. It's still drizzling right now so there may be some more.

Thanks again for all the warm welcomes! And FlyBird I sure hope so, though when I checked the Baldy website they said only 2-4 inches! That makes me so sad.
