Just saying hello
« on: 16/10/2010 19:20:32 »
Hi there.

I'm Pete, and even though I'm not a scientist, I do have an interest in science (even though I did fail Physics, Biology and Chemistry at school), and I like to learn new things.

I'm an amateur astronomer and I learned about The Naked Scientists from the Naked Astronomy podcasts, so I thought I'd come and have a look at the site.

Welcome Pete!

Having a copper-plated education is certainly not a prerequisite here (NtS best not mention my school grades!)

I think you will find many others here who are also interested in home astronomy and may be able to point you in the right azimuth [:D] - if you need it!

Hi Pete and welcome, join me in the dunces corner any time you like.

By the way, be on your guard for sheep baring gifts!

Hi everyone. Thanks for the warm welcome.

Yes, Ben. I am enjoying the forum and podcasts very much.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to set up some gift bearing sheep traps  [;D]

I thought we were supposed to beware of geeks bearing gifts. [???]
