Is this thing on?
« on: July 20, 2012, 04:45:53 PM »
Hi All!

Another member of the great HMEM diaspora here, and very happy to have a forum of our own!

I'm a British expat, living near San Jose, in sunny California, who misses the rain. I'm a software engineer by day, and a self-taught lathe hack by night. Growing up in Warwickshire, I remember the odd steam fair, trips to the Severn Valley Railway, and seeing some of the engines at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum. That must have instilled some kind of love for steam, because now I get excited by building steam engine models.

Glad to be  here!

Welcome aboard Simon!

You can have as much rain as you like, just come on over here and get it. We've got loads going spare...
I'm just a poor old man. I have no time for law-breakers. My legs are grey. My ears are gnarled. My eyes are old and bent.

Hi Simon,
              I wish we could do a swop with the weather, you would be happy to have missed the rain we have had over hear in the last week or two. Floods all over the place.

Cheers Derek
