    I'm new . . .

    . . . and a bit overwhelmed by the forums topics. A lot of discussions seem interesting but I'm not sure how to jump in when there's so many responses. Don't have time to read them all and yet I wouldn't like to repeat a point already made. Any suggestions?

    Oh, and hi.

    Thanks Luther, for the welcome and suggestion. This is a big community. I'm surprised I never came upon it before.

    Howdy Doody, Overitall!!

    Here's my suggestion:

    Go to where it says "Newest Threads". These will typically be the shortest discussions and the easiest to wade through. Pick a thread. Then just speak your mind.

    Welcome to DP!

    My suggestion is to just dive in and get involved in some discussions, let the chips fall where they may.
