Hey there!

Not sure anyone will remember me. I have been MIA for about four (FOUR!) years. I cannot begin to tell you everything that has happened, but do know this: I'M BACK!!!

I have been reading, not posting, for this time period. That means that I have not missed very much. I know all about the arguments-du-jour (and there were many). I am so excited to be able to actually respond directly instead of shouting in my head

I thought about creating a poll to see if you could guess the reason for my hiatus, but I have not regained my star status yet, so you have been spared, LOL! You may post your suspicions, though.....

1. Welcome back, my dear AwakeAtLast!

I'm sorry to say I don't remember you.......... Four years is a long time to be absent! I couldn't do that.

This place is in my blood!

2. I knew you would be the first to reply

And it is totally OK. There will be more posts later that might jog your memory, but not tonight.

4. Irish twin, family farm? Welcome back!

Okay, I cheated. I remember your name, and I did a quick search and found some old threads in which we both commented (though not directly to each other).

14. Not exactly

My original name was WakeMeUp, but I changed it when DU offered an amnesty period after one of the elections - 2008 maybe? The change fit at the time.......

15. You were on a top-secret space mission to explore the moons of

Jupiter (except Europa, obviously), and you've just returned. I know I know, you can't confirm anything ... but Welcome Home, Space-DUer!!

However, now that my daughter is 12, I do get a little bit more sleep.
