I joined Active Rain about a week ago.  I think it's great.  It certainly seems like a great place for a wealth of information.  Looking forward to learning a lot.  A bit overwhelming at first.

Welcome Sylvia will have no problem reaching your first goal of learning a lot here at the rain the problem will be learning that 24 hours in a day are  just not enough to keep up with the flood of information daily at Active Rain. Look forward to seeing you around AR! Cheers!
