This wonderful Forum was started by our Administrator George in January 2011.

We unfortunately missed the actual date....but by popular demand we have decided to make APRIL 1st the Official Anniversary.

So today we are celebrating the Forum's Official TENTH ANNIVERSARY !!!

Some of us have been members most of the last ten years, and others only a short time.
But in all cases I think it's true to say that this Forum has brought us into contact with other like-minded collectors and new friends worldwide, whom we would never have met without it.

So, a BIG THANK YOU to George for creating this Discussion Forum !  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy

Tom first noticed the ten years, and brought it to my attention.  So I am sure it was he who brought this milestone to the attention of other members who have surprised me with donations to the forum this morning in celebration of ten years.  Thank you Tom and all very much Smiley

It can not be said enough times that it is the members who have participated on the forum that has brought it to a successful ten years.  Thank you for your friendships and the knowledge you have shared with me and others here this past ten years !

April 1st sounds like a great official anniversary day !

BIG THANK YOU !

George,

With much appreciation and a big THANK YOU George for creating the Forum.  I joined on June 28, 2011, so my tenure in participation is almost 10-years as well (could not resist the use of the pun  Grin).  I did not realize that I joined in the same year the Forum was created until Tom L. brought it to our attention.  Being a member has allowed me to meet many wonderful people, via online and some later in person, that share my interest in this collecting field.  As Joey would say, participation has energized my enthusiasm, and for me beyond that it has provided a continuous opportunity for the expansion of my knowledge.  I look back on some of my earlier posts and Iím amazed as to how far I come along in my collective knowledge.  This is a function of all those who have been willing to post their bottles, ask questions, and share their experience.  Iíll end as a started with a big THANK YOU to you George and to all those that continuously participate.

Hi George

Thanks for the past 10 years of dedication to this wonderful platform and community . I canít recall if I was number 2 or whether it was Peter (RIP), but this place has come a long way, and hopefully will live on for a long time forward! 

It has been a great venue for all of us, and unfortunately due to my professional choices and the limitations they created, I donít have the time I used to to spend time interacting here. However, that doesnít mean this place doesnít carry a special place in my heart and mind. I do miss interacting with all of you, but one has to accept the consequences of the paths they choose.  I lurk here as I find time, and surely will be back when I fall upon better fortune, business-wise!

Take care all !  And George : keep up the good work!!
