    My name is also Ross Jones, and I’m a cousin of the Ross Jones who worked at Johns Hopkins. How do I go about joining your “club”?

    Hi
    As you can see I am Ross Jones. I am currently 59 years old and live in Australia. I am fiddling with web dev and web design as a hobby and was looking at possible domain names I came across your site.
    As I am another Ross Jones I thought I would drop a message to you just to say hi.
    Cheers
    Ross Jones
