Well, Sunny, seeing your radiant smile, one can certainly understand how you got your (nick)name (or was it the other way 'round ?) ! Hope you post often and let us hear about the fascinating words and phrases you come across !...

Stunning!

A most amazing welcome, and I do thank you all! (Makes a little prayer not to screw up the grammar of the English language too many times). I do admit to having to find an online translator for Brazilian dude's post, which is always a great adventure, thank you!

I do not believe that I have a larger capacity for words than the average person, and I am a quiet person for the most part, but I do tend to use different words when I speak. This often leaves people staring at me with blank looks upon their faces. Hopefully one of them will be curious enough to find a dictionary and in that moment that they crack the spine of the dictionary and turn the pages; perhaps just one of them will find a passion for words!

An affectionate welcome to our newest member, devozione! For those of you who have made me feel so welcome here at the alpha agora I am pleased to introduce my lovely daughter and word devotee to this great forum. :lol:

Now there are two of us, lets hope devozione has a better handle on her matutinal coffee than I do!

Oh dear!! I haven't had a chance to introduce myself yet, and here I find my darling mother doing it for me!

In this case... cheers to all of the wonderful Alpha Angora members! I can tell that there is much to learn here!

Ma carissima devozione, «angora» is just the fur we wear down our backs, not the plaza where we go to display it ! Nice, at any rate, to have you on the square with us !...

Hah, Look at that! The first post I make here, and there is a giant typo. Oh dear, I'm off to a fantastic start, aren't I? :oops:

Welcome, Devozione! Errors and all! We love imperfect people here (not that we hate the perfect, right , BD?).

Post away without fear,

That's why you will see the Edit button on the upper right of your post. :wink: I've used it many a time. Sometimes to add something I'd forgotten to add to the original post, sometimes to change something I farbled up in the original post. :)
