Hi there from England.

edited October 2011 in Spurious Generalities
Just wandered in off the street so to speak. I just joined totse2.com and saw some links to here. I read a post by DFG which impressed me. Being older than most posters, I was attracted by the promise of adult stimulating conversation. So here I am.

Be gentle with me, I'm somewhat of a noob at forums.

    I like to think of it as more of a heads-up :D Just making sure, we've just dealt with some e-drama, we'd prefer not have more.

    No worries on that score from this direction my friend. I assumed from what I read on totse2.com that was the reason.

    Thanks Jugg.

    Box, first impressions are important. My first impression of you is immaturity. Am I right?

    They are important and that is why Box will have a week to think about his actions in this thread today.

    I suppose as this is my introduction thread I should maybe tell you a little about me.

    I'm 51, male, married twice. I have a degree in physics. I'm called Chippy, because that's what I am, a Chippy.
    Anyone from the UK would recognise that as a nickname for a joiner, or carpenter as you call them in the US.

    Just reach 25 and show that you have potential. I will upgrade your rank on the fly. Plus, if you're good with writing something or want to share stories or talk about Physics or something that interests you, we have a fully working Content management system at your service.

    I'm not particularly verbose, But I have a wealth of experience on many subjects. I'll get around to sharing when I've found my way around a bit.
    I'm open to any questions on DIY having spent a lot of years in the building trade. And I also spent 13 years as a cobbler, (shoe repairer) and saddler. So any questions on footware or leather, I'm your man. I also spent quite a few years in the leisure industry as an audio engineer.

    That's a deal. I'm free every alternate weekend as my daughter stops with her mother every other weekend.
    Saying that, she just left for Australia for 3 weeks with her mother, so just say where and when dude.

    Anyone else in the area up for a mini meet?

    Welcome to Totse good sir :) There is quite a big contingent of British people on Totse so there seems (Im from Wales) lol I would love to read whatever you come up with! Quite interested in Physics myself, although I was never good it past my GCSE's.

    What is with the rose? Doesn't that have something to do with the Stewart line or something?

    After a bit of Googling I see where I went wrong.

    This is a Stewart Rose.
  • chippychippy <b style="color:pink;">Global Moderator</b>

    Ahhhh the tudor rose was the amalgamation of the York rose and the Lancashire rose.

    I really like you, Chippy. my Grandpa was a lifelong carpenter in West London and a top craftsman. I'm surprised at just how skilled some people aren't in this world, but those who are put it to good use.

    Nice to see you're contributing as well. I hope you enjoy your stay here, as I know I will.
