Hi, I see from the "similar threads" that there are other people from Illinois, and at one from Northern Illinois.
I don't know anything about this site, but got the link from my daughter's Facebook and as I am a DIYer, I thought I would check it out.
I've already ready one thread that I am going to reply to. It seems we have similar backgrounds and it would be nice to get to know them.

I wil post more as I get to know the site. Bye for now....and Hello!
