And may steam and fortune,
Always rise before thee!”

    As a newcomer who has taken such delight in wandering the streets of New Babbage of late – would just like to express my deepest sense of appreciation to all who have contributed so much to this fine and eclectic community.  Happy Founders week one and all.

    Goodness! Meant days ago to say something here to second Miss Breezy’s sentiment!  

    Here here and lift a frothy mug to our beloved founders and those who have come after.  Without them, well, not only would some of us have never met but certainly we wouldn’t share that common, steamy bond that is New Babbage.  Ours is a rare city, an iron-and-soot testiment to a past that never was and yet we exist in day-in and day-out.  Without our founders long ago deciding that New Babbage was a vision worth sharing and making a reality..well…do I even need to say it?

    Thank you, thank you, thank you :)
