Gee, thanks all, I am really flattered.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the site most of the time, been frustrated by it at times and learned a lot from it. I always try to mix some new and old and a mix of locations in any uploads and am down to my last few hundred black and white negatives and slides.
More importantly though, I have made so many friends (at a time when I really needed them). Many are friends I will never meet, but I have enjoyed the laughs, discussions and ribbing with so many others, Kevin Bates, Jid, Paul Markman, Fergul, Tim Goodwin, etc. It is impossible to come away from a day at MAN
without having had a laugh ! There are too many others to mention that I have met either on the Internet or in person.
I must also thank the Screeners who make this site what it is, like it or not, that is what they do. Next time you get a rejection, and you sure as hell will, remember that !
One last tip....photograph it all. The day will come when you will regret not having done so.
