Hello and thank you
« on: March 29, 2014, 12:50:22 PM »
Well, when this stop on the internet was formed just over six years ago, I had no idea where it would go.  I had no children yet and one job.  Now, I have two children and two jobs! We have made new friends, new contacts, and seen many friends come and go.

With that said, I'm so thankful for all of you coming here and taking part.  It's wonderful!  I may not be on here as much as I once was, but I am still here, still trying. Thank you for all you do!  I'd love to see a new spurt of activity.  I know Facebook and other social media has taken much new priority over traditional websites and internet forums, but I do believe that websites and forums have a great purpose, such as this place.

Keep on keeping on, let's do this! These are the submarines in your neighborhood!

Hey I like learning about this stuff as I go.

It's a shame the economy has taken such a nosedive over the last decade.  I really do think things like museum submarines will suffer for it long-term.
