    Howdy Y'all ~~

    I'm Texan Tigress. I'd like to thank the creator/s, the Mods, & the BHW 'family' for allowing me the privilege of becoming a part of your community. I am just in the learning stages about this field - but am knowledgeable in others. My husband is extremely tech savvy & let me know about this great group of people. (Thanks Tiger!!)

    I'd just like to take a moment to thank all of those in freedom loving countries including my own US of A whom have or are in the Armed Forces for serving,for your sacrifices & for my freedoms! Let's face it - without those brave Heroes none of us would be able to use this internet for our own aspirations as freely as we can in the first dang place now would we? ;-)

    I look forward to learning all that I can & to having the privilege of getting to know y'all.

    Welcome Texan Tigress!

    In case anyone has ANY doubts, I can assure you that TexanTigress IS a 'girl'! (Well, actually a Lady of course). The way that I know is that I am the 'extremely tech savvy' person she mentions in her post, making her my Wife (yep, "Mrs. OldSalt").

    After watching me on BHW for quite some time and helping me with my IM endeavors, she became curious as to what BHW was all about. So I made sure it was ok for her to come onboard and here she is.

    I'll try to make sure she doesn't make TOO many newbie mistakes... lol (she learns quickly so I'm sure she'll do fine here).

    Have fun my Tigress! ;)

    BTW - she really does talk that way... mostly. ;)

    and I have to say, I grew up in the north but have considered Florida to be my 'home' for a long time (where I lived before I joined the Navy) - but after visiting Texas, I found it to be alot like Florida, but with much nicer people. "The Friendly State" really is more than just a motto there.

    We are very seriously considering making our next move to Tx :)

    Welcome to BHW :)

    (About the talking about murica!!!. We have lots of people here who are from countries which may not really meet the expectations which americans have about a free country .. Just saying that some people on here may have had not so pleasant experience with americans/american soldiers/the american goverment in the past.... Running around and yelling about america┬┤s freedom might be offensive to some people here.

    Personal example which offended me: "without those brave Heroes none of us would be able to use this internet for our own aspirations as freely as we can in the first dang place now would we?".

    It is a bit offensive for people who know the history of the internet. I would say lets thank the people who fight day for day against goverment/political censorship. Lets thank the people who develope new security meassures 24/7 to keep the world wide net secure. Lets thank the people who created the internet in the first place. Lets pay respect to the people who have to hide behind highly anonymous proxies in order to avoid torture and jailtime. Lets say thanks to all the "nerds, geeks and hackers" who created every single protocol on the internet in the first place. Lets just say thanks to everyone who is involved in developing the internet further in further... Our net, and at the moment the only place with real freedom)

    Anyways:

    I wish you a really nice time on here and huge sucess with all your journeys in your life.
    Hope you will meet alot of friendly people on here. They are everywhere ;) . Just dont judge someone because they are from a country you might not like.
    There are bad people everywhere, but there are also even more good people everywhere... Not just in "free countrys".

    Good luck and a big welcome once again :)

    PS:
    @OldSalt this needed to be said before she really offends someone on here without here really meaning in that way. You know yourself we have members from all around the world here... And political views often lead to conflict when people from all over the world come together. Just wanted to warn her before she starts a shitstorm about america here or something like that. We had that alot of times before in the lounge.

    With kind regards,

    ~Black.Star~

    I'm just me & want to help the world be a better place..Old Salt.& I quite often call ourselves "Frustrated Philanthropist"
    I think that every state as well as country have great aspects &people.All have a "few bad apples in the bunch" as well.I don't want my Mom to ever lose her home or have to go to a nursing home..I want to give back to her "in the living years" It is so hard to give back when living so far away.Btw...she taught school for 31 years & Old Salt is on her A+++++++++++++++++++++++++ list !!I'm still tryin to get there lol!!

    BlackStar ~

    I am very sorry that I offended you. That most definitely was not my intent. I, however, can't apologize for being American as I would hope that you would never apologize for being a citizen of your county.

    Thank you for being honest with me though! I respect a "Straight Shooter" who doesn't mince words!
