    Welcome Hambone!

    Hambone comes to us vetted by one of our current members, I won't say who but he is free to crow about his find if he wishes. So ya'll play nice until we see if there is enough meat left on that bone to make a good pot of beans!

    Hambone, feel free to jump in and mix it up with us. Just don't jump in the Bilge without a level A contamination suit.
