Hello, all,

I have been a lurker in these parts since the days when Randi was active on the JREF board. Never got around to joining; now I have. No more getting "members only" when I click on links! Hurray!!

BTW, "Masque" refers to BBQ, not Red Death.

Well, I'm disappointed. Welcome!

I suppose I could make some overly spicy tomato-based bbq sauce and name it "Red Death", then we'd have "The Red Death of Masque", probably enough to turn old Edgar over in his grave.

I'm in Baltimore, so I could keep an eye on the grave.

That sounds like a seller.

Welcome!

You could do another version called "The Black Death" to segue back to eleanor1 our new med student and andersonfd (Catherine) who joined on the previous page.

Hi there. Itís been a while since I posted here; I just drifted by on a sudden whim. Wonderful to see so many familiar names still here.

How have we all been?

We've been really good, richardm. Most of us. Thanks for asking.
