    Default Coming back after an extended absence from BN

    It's been about two years or more since I've been around much on Basenotes. I just decided to post again to my Blog. You can check that out if you followed me before or are interested at all.

    I've also cleared out some space in my Personal Messages Inbox. Drop me a line if you like.

    It's good to be back, and just want to say that I'm glad for the time that I'm now once again able to spend here. Ciao for now!
    Yr good bud,

    JaimeB

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Welcome back Jamie.

    I remember reading several of your posts previously.

    There have been some changes since you were here last, including a membership fee. Send me a PM and I will let you know about payment detail to me, oh oh I mean basenotes.

    Really great to see you back, Jaime! I still cite your blog all the time - and every time I have gone back to it to find something, I have worried about not seeing you around here.

    Thanks for posting, Jaime! I hope to see you around here whenever you get the chance to drop by. We really miss you!!!

    I also remeber the member "Petrujjcic" or something like that. He was a prominent oldtimer, tad bit overly cynical but I liked that.
