Hello Everyone.

I saw an advert on TV that asked "when was the last time you did something for the first time?" I've been doing the quizzes for a few days but I've never posted on a forum ever, So that would be the thing I do for the first time. It feels a little like being in the deep end of the pool. Advice greatly welcome.

Hi LA best, and welcome to the forums We've got a few others from South Africa here so you'll be in good company.

Just join in the discussions with everyone else and you'll get along fine but if there's ever anything you need help with just yell, someone can always help out.

Hi. I'm also from Cape Town, South Africa. No need to be afraid. You'll find everyone is friendly and helpful. Reading the rules of the forums helps a lot. That was the first thing I did when I joined. Other than that join in and have fun.

Hiya LA Best ! As for being in the "deep end of a pool"? Ah, never fear. We've got one or three lifeguards running around in here. You'll be just fine. Enjoy your "swims' with us !
