Wow, I can’t believe that 2 years have gone by already. Time flies when you’re having fun !

This has been a fantastic two years from a LJ perspective. I have met and talked with so many wonderful folks out there. I have increased my woodworking skills by a huge amount from all of the wonderful information that is shared here on LJ’s. From the projects for inspiration, the blogs with amazing instructions, the reviews to assist in making decisions on tools etc, the forums for asking advice and getting such an amazing amount of feedback/answers/ideas and suggestions. Of course, speaking of forums, one cannot to mention “The Coffee Lounge”.............. Oh dear, where do we go with this one? From humor, to just every day stuff, to sharing thoughts and of course, to sharing or not sharing “differences”. Sometime people get a little out of hand, but usually in the end, in a true LJ fashion, they all “kiss and make up”.

This site has become a daily ( many times ) ritual for me. If I miss a day for some reason or another, I actually miss all of you folks!

One of the things that I am so iimpressed with on this site is when a fellow LJ or their family has or is having a major issue in life, be it health, job, depressed, loss of a loved one ( yes, even our beloved pets ), it is always the LJ’s that you can count on for a pick me up, some kind words or some much needed prayers.

Thanks go to Martin for continuing to make this site the best in the world, and thanks to all the LJ’s out there that have helped me along the way, and also given me the opportunity to help as well.

Looking forward to many, many more years of meeting more exciting LJ’s and making many more friends along the way.

Thank you everyone !!!!!!!
