So many new members - 20! - in the past few weeks! to all of you!
Glad to see you all here! I've been MIA lately,and will be around only sporadically for awhile,but want to give you the Cafe welcome!
Thanks, Katii! Honored to be here, and thanks for the invite!
Mary, if you click on the little smiley at the top right of your reply window you'll find all the smileys and the code to type (a word with asterisks on each end of it) - to post the welcome emoti just type the word welcome between asterisks, no spaces. We can just use keystrokes for some of then, like...
a colon followed by an end parenth. makes this:
a colon followed by a front parenth. makes this
a semi-colon followed by a lowercase p makes this:
a colon followed by an uppercase D makes this:
I don't know how to make those little smiley faces saying WELCOME - but I'm really glad to be here, and I look forward to a lot of fascinating discussions!

Ah, thank you, Laura
Hey, on my computer Laura IS now Laura! Welcome and nice to see you again.
Yay! Roger and Seanmhair, aka LAURA, my sister-in-love
(this is the last time I type out Seanmhair, it's much to much work, it's not phonetic, and I'm lazy maybe she'll just change that to read the beautiful name her Mama gave her, Laura )
Thank you Scarlett and thank you for inviting me Katii. I used to hang out at LR&B but had to make my exit quite a while ago. I am so happy that David has started this meeting place and that he is feeling better. What a blessing. It already feels more comfortable and kind and informative then I have felt in a group for a long time. Happy Sunday!!

Seanmhair! nice to have you here, kick back, put your feet up and relax.
I don't use cannabis either, but I agree with Cam. Putting people in prison for using it (unless they cause a traffic accident or burn down a house or something) is really stupid. It's part the the government control freak mentality. really, it's kind of like Keynesian Economics as applied to the criminal justice system. We need to imprison people, keep on building prisons to keep up the employment numbers. Military Keynesianism is the same thing. Make things and break them in order to keep the the economy running and have people employed. If peoples lives get ruined: well tough.
What part of this being a restriction of Liberty the drug laws are do people not understand? And as far as those who choose to use it for medical reasons? It's none of the governments business. It's unbelievable what we allow the government to get away with.
Hi everyone. I'm so glad to be here and see all of you. I'm sure I will enjoy this group.
Kelly! it is great that you are here!
A little birdie just told me Kelly's in the house
I just popped in to have a quick look here and was amazed to see so many friendly and familiar faces!! This is a very good group with very nice people.
I haven't checked this threa in some time. It is nice to see so many familiar faces. Woo Hoo! And of course a few new ones too.
Hi Mary! Good to see you!

Well, I'm an old fuddy duddy I guess but I'm happy to be here among all of these nice members!!
Hi David, I use to smoke and I see nothing wrong with adults who want to indulge. I see alot of good people here, thank you for inviting me David, its nice to be here!
I'm glad to see everyone here! Welcome to the Cafe!
Hi to the new girls, Angelica and Kay
Hi everyone - I know most of you, but I'm welcoming everyone. I think this group will be a lot of fun.
I know - I already posted here - but more people have joined, and I wanted to
Thank you for inviting me to your new group. It's about time you started a group. Great idea, and I'm glad to be a part of it.
& I'm really glad to see David's feeling sooo much better he's up
to hosting this group.... should prove interesting... David, how
'bout a little music

hello everyone, Katii, Nancy, Harmony... & y'all... did someone say it's 4:20?
Nice to see you Katii- not a problem. I think this will be a fun group and I also thank David for inviting me.
OMG I'm so embarrassed - I didn't see you standing there, Nancy! I'm so glad you're here
Rebecca, Bryan, Dixie, Harmony
Well, I joined, but it's not reflected (yet) on the group number... HELLO! I actually staggered off of Facebook, LOL!
You must be feeling soooo much btter ~~~ hope so ~~ David, I will
get here as much as possible!!!
Thanks for the invite David!
Thank you for the invite and welcome, David!
Ok, I will admit it here. I inhaled but apparently have no THC receptors. Sorry. I hope I can stay in the group anyway.
I do many things at 4:20. What a better time!
Never thought we had to be tokers to join here, but I'm curious what you mean by a 4:20 break...you mean an actual 4 hours and 20 minute break? Somehow I doubt that is what you meant!
Let me make it clear..one does not have to toke to be part of this Cafe..just know that some do
I also know folks have various political views here,and sometimes debates get lively! What I am asking is that at all times opposing views be respected.
Should disrespect or personal attacks rear itself,we will take a 4:20 break and allow for things to get peaceful again
David - thanks for inviting me. I'm glad to be here. I don't toke anymore, not for a long time - but I sure used to!
Hi to everyone. Bee Hive, you are the only one I don't know here - so I look forward to getting to know you!

Thanks for the invitation, David! Like Cam, I'm not into smoking the funny stuff. I'm funny enough!
I was in Amsterdam for a few days during the Christmas holidays so I guess that's a plus for me!
I am very grateful for the invitation to this group. I know the host, David, himself, so I know we will have some humor while we toke away.
Thanks for the invite David. I look forward to watching this group grow and develop a personality. In your capable hands it will no doubt be as comfortable as an old pair of jeans in no time.
If anyone needs me I will be the one flopped on the couch in the corner totally absorbed in my cold bottle of Leinie's Bock and my collection of Elmore James tunes.
Hi David, Hi Cam
Not into Cannibis myself David but think it is dumb to put people in jail for it. Better things to spend our money on for sure. We have some premium stuff grown up here called BC Bud that people really like. Guess we have good soil eh?
Just wishing to welcome you to David's Amsterdam Cafe!
Hope you will enjoy yourself here.. I hope to make this a friendly and open place.. Not going to have many rules,but here's a couple things you should know about the place..
David's Amsterdam Cafe is a Cannibis Friendly spot! One doesn't have to consume cannibis in order to be here,but if you have problems with it,this may not be the place for you.
Also,it should be known that David's Amsterdam Cafe is Libertarian friendly..All political views are welcomed,and debate is fine,however debate will be conducted with respect for all views.. With that,let me say enjoy!
