I'm excited to have @Karen Margrave on the team! She'll bring some much needed estrogen to our team of enforcers.... but don't take that as a sign of weakness -- she's one tough cookie and definitely someone we can all learn from.

@James Vermillion I know what you mean! Now I have an identity crisis.

@Joshua Dorkin In those few instances where my straightforward answer came off a bit to harsh, I recognized it, and made sure I apologized :) It's always my intent to encourage people in their ventures and help them anyway I can.

Good choice, guys, and congrats, @Karen Margrave. Nice to know your last name. I don't know why it matters, but somehow it feels better to know your whole name. :-)) Silly, isn't it?

@Bill Gulley You know I'd never do that! I was wondering where you were... a little late for the party huh? LOL Thanks. Guess they thought I should be a moderator lest it looks like there's stalkers on BP :)

No, I posted yesterday, wished you a happy V day, called you baby (afectionately) with your pic, then admited I shouldn't have done that and suggested you spank me with your mod authority.....as a joke my dear! Seems someone else is infringing on freedoms of speach and rights to kid around amongst friends.

It's gone!

Obviously I lack the social graces to apply as a mod....LOL

;))

I'd say I can't believe all the welcomes, but I know that BP has the most generous and kind group of people anywhere!

@Bill Gulley LOL I didn't see that, but totally would have gotten it. Guess others may not have, so .... off with your comment! :)

Someone has to represent all the women on BP ... and I don't think you are the one!

@Karen Margrave, not quite yet. However, I am researching a few hard money lenders right now in the Phoenix area. Also, there is a BP Member that is working with a Real Estate Attorney and will let me know how it goes when he is done, so that will be nice. I figured it is better to ask, even if not for a great reference, but a "Stay away from so and so" kind of deal :) I saw in one of your post that your parents live in the Phoenix area. How do they like it, and how long have they been there?

Hey, someone from my 'neck of the woods,' Orange County, CA. Congratulations Karen, and good luck. My mother was a moderator for another forum and it really kept her busy. But she liked it. I am sure you will like it too!
