Hey Charlie,

Welcome to the CPYOA forum!  I rotated your avatar.  Only bob23 can be seen as sideways.

Hi Charlie, welcome to the madhouse.  Welcomes a little slow right now, way to much hurricane watching in the southeast.

Hi Charlie!
  Would you mind participating in a short survey?
1. What is your favorite beer?
2. What is your favorite rum?
3. What is your quest?
4. What is your favorite color?

We now use a sliding membership fee scale so the final fee depends on your answers.  As always, all checks should be made out to me.
Oh...and welcome!!!

TG - thanks for straightening me up! I tried for quite a while to do that and couldn't....almost enlisted my ComSci major daughter to help....but then realized a moment of humility would probably overcome me and decided better to be on my "beam ends" than to face that consequence!

OK Bob I'll bite:

1. What is your favorite beer? This summer it has been Sunny Daze brewed by Barrel House Brewing Company in Templeton, CA - my newest favorite local brewery. I lived in the Central California Coast and we're blessed with about a dozen (plus) great breweries (maybe you've heard of Firestone - they're pretty big these days?), and over 250 wineries in about a 10 mile radius from the house....
2. What is your favorite rum? None....
3. What is your quest? To sail many more days than I do yard work!
4. What is your favorite color? Green....(BRG), most sports cars and boats look best in green!

Charlie: Congrats! With the exception of question 2, you've passed with flying colors! #2 should have been "Newfy's Screetch".
