Congrats!  Tennessee welcomes "border raiders".  So, come to Sevierville sometime.
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
― Hyman G. Rickover

So I am still learning my way around the forum... I guess this is kind of obvious since I haven't replied to many threads.  But, I thought better late than never.  A big thanks for the welcome that I have received coming into the Appleseed fold.  I only hope that I can do for others newcomers what many Appleseeders have done for me. 
Looking forward to bailing the boat with y'all!

Thanks for stepping up. The journey will be worthwhile.  O0
