Re: Warm greetings to everyone reading this

HI Amit, welcome to LV!

I'm glad that you like our recordings and that you want to give something back! I bet most of our other readers came to LV exactly the same way!

As I see, you have already submitted your test - you're well on track already. :wink: Have fun on here!
