Hello all,

Just a quick introduction here. My name is Karen and I am a spiney. (Doesn't that just sound like an AA introduction?) LOL

This forum is such an absolute wealth of up-to-date information and incredibly supportive participants that I don't know how I ever missed it before!

Anyway, I'm glad I found you and am looking forward to learning from you all (and maybe even helping a little bit too if I can. :))

All the best,
