New Moderators !!!

It my great pleasure to announce that two of our members have answered the call to join the moderator team. You know them well, as they have been regular contributors here on a variety of topics and have been gracious, thoughtful, and helpful to one and all. The volunteer moderators are an essential part of enabling this site to maintain its reputation as an island of reasonable and informative discussion in a sea of internet nastiness, and we greatly appreciate those who step forward to help with that task.

So, without further ado, please join me in welcoming our new moderators simple girl and MarieIG
