This is my first Internet list and other than one posting I have been simply "lurking" for about a month. I get the home roast list emails about two or three times a day and they have about 30 messages each which turns into about 70 pages of typed info. Most of the pages are repeated messages and weird email mumbojumbo or even HTML? Maybe this is just part of being part of an email list but I am having troubles keeping up. I really like the topics and the people posting seem very nice. I am wondering if I am participating in a dumb way, or am I just not experienced enough to weed through the meaningless and repetitive stuff to get to Ginny's feedback?

Well to be honest I already new I was a bit dumb and lazy but it was comforting to get the info from you all which helps me rationalize that I am also ignorant about the list workings. Although I am still a bit too much of a newbie to have the knowledge to post much I will be lurking with a good cup of coffee when I should be working. --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
