Wow!  This took off FAST! Fantastic!  I guess now would be a good time
to introduce myself.  For those who don't yet know me, my name is Roise
inghean ui Rhauidhrie and I'm the Kingdom Social Media Officer.  I've

with everyone at the meetings at Kris Kinder and 12th Night!  I look
forward to this exciting idea!
