    What a nice community!!!

    Hey folks,

    This is my first day on this board. And, the experience is so fine that I'd like to say 'THANK YOU' to all of the folks who post here.

    Such an enjoyable experience! I'm looking forward to continuing here.

    Thanks,

    Nefertete

    Hey Nefertete! Welcome. Is there anything significant about the Egyptian Queen and the desert references?

    That's exactly what I thought!!!! It took me days to post to anything! I'm such a chicken.

    Wow! WOW! WOW!

    What a surprise - so many responses!

    Thanks for the nice welcomes, folks.

    I wasn't sure if this would be the right forum to post this message - I kinda figured it might be more appropriate to be in the 'other topics' forum, but I'm so thrilled with this board that I wanted you all to know how I feel.

    There are probably many nice websites around, but I've seen so many other than nice ones that I'm chicken to risk. I subscribe to some really nice ones, and this board is one of the best.

    Hey valchemist,
    Regarding the name Nefertete and the term desert, I have a special regard for Pharaoh Nefertete. I've found out that she was actually Pharaoh - the daughter of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, unlike what some researchers believe. The title 'queen' was slapped on her because she was female. Her spouse, Ikhnaton, was from a country foreign to Egypt. Take a look at some pictures of the two of them and you'll get an idea of what I'm saying. You'll also see that she more resembles Amenhotep III than does Ikhnaton.

    I am a desert dweller - I live in Southern California. There's no connection between my interest in Pharaoh Nefertete and my place of residence. Lala.

    And, Gertdog,
    I'm doing some research on it right now - checking out the recipes folks have posted on the thread I started, as well, I'm considering using a lemon bar recipe combined with Brownies Cockaigne from the Joy of Cooking. I might make them separately today, then combine them if it works out well enough. I'll keep you posted.

    Yep, a good place. I found it by accident and have been here more or less ever since. The editors never did get my letter either!

    Welcome and Happy Halloween!

    That's true - everyone sure seems to be willing to lend a helping hand to one another here. And, the wonderful thing is - there's nobody giving anybody else a hard time about anything. What a breath of fresh air!

    And, it sure is a nice place to find 'by accident'. That's how I found it, too.


    Thanks for the welcome!

    You should have been around here about a month or so ago. We wound up collecting money for a helpless dog named Alamo, who needed surgery and a new home.

    Not only did he find a new home, we raised several hundred $$ for the surgery, that wound up being used by the vets to help other animals because the new owners paid for the surgery.

    Check out the Other Stuff board for an update on Alamo, B+V+K+Alamo

    Thanks Leisa for the info.

    Rehabilitating animals is something I have done. The care of animals is near and dear to my heart.

    Glad to hear how generous this board is to those guys.

    Welcome!! Which desert do you live in?
