    Hello @DebsHarr65 and a warm welcome to the community. (And thank you for calling the lovely Debbie Harry back to my mind with your username!) It is very good to have you with us.
    You've found a safe place here, and friends, so please don't be shy of asking us any questions or of telling us anything about yourself that might help us get to know you and find ways of being of use to you.
    Warmest best wishes to you,

    Funny to say this but yes I am a Blondie fan and yes always used to get called Debbie Harry at school because of my name. We guys thank u for letting me join you. I'm trying to put my life back together after having 2 double strokes and 7 tias. Most of my so called friends have left me as I can't communicate as well as I used to as the left hand side of my face has gone down and can't talk very well atm. I live in Stoke on Trent and for now I bid you all good night
