A new start... « on: September 10, 2019, 04:46:45 PM » Author: sox35
Hi all,

My other half Sammi and I decided to leave Lighting Gallery at the end of last year for various reasons.

Anyway, I have of late found myself missing the site, so after a lot of talk between ourselves and emails with Patrick of the admin team, I have decided to return, but with a different username. The reasons for this are many, but SOX is my favourite light source and 35W is the rating I have most of, so it seemed reasonable..!

I am hoping that most members here will welcome me back, I do know that I have had some rather opinionated "discussions" on here in the past, but that's where they are, the past, and that's where I intend them to stay. My mental health was suffering somewhat at the time of our departure, so we felt it was the only way out. Time is a great healer, it is said, and I find this to be true. I have a mild form of autism, and while it doesn't greatly impact my day to day life, it does cause me problems now and then, which are not helped when I think that people are targeting me for whatever reason.

I have had a lot of positive things happen in my life as a result of being a member here, and I hope this will continue. To those who for whatever reason had "issues" with me in the past, or the other way around, it doesn't really matter, I say this - you are forgiven. I hold no grudges, and I hope you can see it in your hearts to do the same. If so, all is good. If not, then I will be saddened, but I will not get into any arguments or flame wars, life is too short.

Take care and enjoy the hobby and your lives. I will endeavour to do the same. Sammi may well return at a future time, depending on how things go.

WELCOME BACK RIA !!!!!! Your new user name, makes perfect sense, my namesake is my favorite floodlight that WAS and soon will be again lighting my field behind my garage  https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=5198&pos=90&pid=157746 Yes, I figured out how to post photos after you left.

 As for the "opinionated discussions" Those are a result of a thing called PASSION for the things you hold dear and special . I personally have got into a TON of arguments both at work and elsewhere over things that I feel very strongly over . As far as I'm concerned that's life and those who don't like it can stuff it !

 Again , Welcome Back ! You and Sammi are just another piece of the puzzle needed to complete the picture that is LG - Somewhere to share Lighting/Electrical knowledge and Cool lamps / fixtures / gear that some have never seen before . BTW while you were gone I finally got into the SOX world with a Norelco SOX 135/180w Streetlight ! I Like It ! Grin

As folk will have seen I'm back as well with a new username. I chose it because I'm learning to play the mandolin, and will soon have enough money to buy this fine instrument.  Grin

I was, but that was a while ago. As I think I mentioned at the time, I had to sell the bike due to lack of funds, my work got reduced to 3 days a week (NOT my idea, grrrr) and with the drop in money I couldn't afford to run 2 vehicles. I needed the car for work, so the bike had to go  Cry
