Well, this is a milestone! We recently had over 250,000 posts to the forums! Considering that the site is only about 9 months old and doesn't have any "off-topic chat" forums that tend to rack up hundreds of off-topic posts, that is quite an impressive number! We generally see about 500 posts a day.

There are 9,947 threads on the site. We'll cross the 10,000 number soon.

It's because we are all working toward a common goal.
The love of nature and its influence on us is the binding factor.

Congratulations to you and Trish, and to all of us who love being here.
And thanks for the report. I tip my hat to you.

I agree

Sort of says it all doesn't it?

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I'm not kidding. I would love a dancing smiley! Every time I get happy, I feel like dancing & I get happy a whole lot around here. I would use the heck out of a dancing smiley.
