honorary Hose Monster:
I'm extremely pleased to welcome a wonderful writer and thinker, and one of the best friends I ever hope to have, the the blogging world. My pal Adam, who has left quite a number of great comments with the HM, made his very first post to a group blog. Not much of a post mind you, but it is a first effort, and I'll be the first to admit my first efforts, or for that matter my first couple months of effort, didn't really have a whole lot to say either. And no jokes from the peanut gallery about how I have nothing to say now either.
Anyway, welcome Adam. We're enriched to have you.
