Hello,

I've been following the board for some time but this is my first post. I just want to say hello to everyone and also this is a great board. I've enjoyed reading many of the posts.

I converted to Orthodoxy 5-years ago from RC. I live in upstate NY (for now) where I went to college.

Take Care!
