Could be hit or miss for me. I am in AZ. A state in search of a time zone. And the only state on the mainland that doesn't "do" Daylight Savings.

Hey Ferrator, I'm usually in the chat room early in the morning Around 6:30 AM. But the time difference is the big difference. I live in PA, so it would be pretty early for you. Every now and again a few of us talk at night around 9PM. Maybe you can check it out then.

Hi Ferrator, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
