(Dateline: OC.net Press---outside Stately OC.net Palace)

The populace of the OC.net world who were gathered in the courtyard of the Palace saw white smoke rising from the palace chimney.

As they gathered under the balcony for the Administrative Chambers of the palace, the OC.net Admin Council were joined by the fellow Moderators. Then, with great drama, the newest Moderator was ushered in and his hand was raised by the Administrators in a show of solidarity:

EofK

The crowd roared 'Axia' at their first glimpse of their new Family Forum Board Moderator, bestowed upon them through the grace of God.

AXIA! AXIA! AXIA!

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

LOL!   ;D ;D ;D

Thank you all!  I would like to take a moment to make a very lengthy and boring speech, but won't.  (And thank you for the really really large Axia, Mr. Y...  Good husband!)

Mr. Y - Now that your lovely wife and the mother of your firstborn is involved in moderating, you have volunteered for all diapering duties from now on?  Yes?  (Oh and just wait until the exploding yellow unstoppable, uncontrollable, diapers from hell start up, oh... in about 1 month.   :laugh: )

Oh yeah, more than you can imagine is humanly possible.  My only advice is breastfeed as long as you can because it does make it more bearable.

That's "More" bearable.  But they can still be ummm appalling.
