We are delighted that you decided to join "The Rose discussion group." If for some reason you ever decide that you no longer want to receive notifications of new discussions, just go to our (now your new) Rose home page, and hit the "remove" icon. We have welcomed 500 new Rose members this year. So there should be lots of new friends for you to share with. If there is anyway I can ever help you, please don't hesitate to write. And there are also several members who have volunteered to serve as "Rose Angels" who are also happy to help you in any way they can.
Your new discussion group "The Rose" got it's name from a famous "free speech" discussion group in the 1930s http://www.thetwilightsaga.com/profiles/blogs/what-does-it-mean-when-a I feel that their spirit has always been the magic behind our group. When ever a new member joined their group they always received a white rose and a simple note that said "Welcome home."

PS. We are ALL looking forward to sharing with you. We have a few motto's IE: "When sharing with friends you can never say too much." Since we have "Rose Members" from over a dozen different countries: Friends don't notice grammatical and spelling errors. And "Phila" is the Greek word for the special form of love that develops between friends. (Aristotle)
