Bonjour and greetings to all

Post by Minnie » Tue September 14th, 2010, 9:11 am

Hello/bonjour from France.
I've just joined the Forum, so am still finding my way around.
What I've seen so far has filled me with enthusiasm, so I'm looking forward to getting to know people and their views - and learning much more about matters historical and fictional (as opposed to 'fictitious'? Aaargh, inner pedant escapes!).
All the best,

Min :)
