    Hi there I am quite new myself and they are right when they say very friendly and welcoming group. I'm learning more than participating at the moment so glad I found the site. Are you up the North of scotland? I have a friend from college who is near Aberfeldy do you know it?

    Hi ScottishLass, ditto to everything everyone has said, you really get to learn alot from this forum. I live in Cornwall (a bit of a trek from Scotland!) with 5 Campbell ducks, 2 cats, a husband and a teenage son (heaven help me!).
    You'll always find answers to any questions you have here!!
