Thanks, Jim. I came here last year, probably through a Google search for something. The site was under a lockdown due to a transition to the new platform. I forgot about it for a while and then decided recently that I should visit again.

Hi No. 4, 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.

Thanks, Rob. 

I don't play my dulcimer as often as I should. I admit to being distracted by my piano, since my greater knowledge of it lets me make more progress with it.

Thanks. I knew that I was far from being the fourth person who signed up here. It's part of a handle I used a long time ago in a computer system far away.
