Wishing peace and prosperity to my fellow Wiktionarians. I migrated here from Wikipedia in 2007. I also see some of my prior article work or suggestions have transwiki'd their way over here magically without me even noticing. Goldenrowley 06:26, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

So-called Credentials: I have a B.A. in English and some training in French, and sometimes I understand basic Spanish.

Work in Process[edit]

I am helping to get Transwiki's logged in, and finished: User:Goldenrowley/Sandbox
