Your approach made me feel welcome; so congratulations, even if you made even just a few of us feel welcome (and I suspect it’s more than just a few).

I know it’s been said – you are an inspiration to us and thanks for your posts. They are informative, encouraging, interesting and friendly, even on your bad days. Often, folk seem to post to toot their horns and that has kept me away from this forum at times. It’s odd that I say this because I’m guilty of it at times. But you are every bit humble with all your knowledge and that keeps me coming back. Looking forward to your next milestone!

Jim, I think that any LJ should be able to make as little or as many comments as they like and not have to explain anything. Some people get upset over things like this and I have never understood why. You’ve got a fine shop, plenty of know how, and you uplift people. You don’t mind helping people and you’re always giving words of encouragement. You are definitely an LJ asset. Sooooooo start working on your second 50,000 right away!!!!

Congratulation Jim,

Like you I try to comment on as many projects as I can, as well as welcome as many new LJ’s as I have time for, I am very appreciative of my fellow LJ’s who take the time to comment on my projects, blogs and those of you who have welcomed me on my first day. Even if its not the greatest creation in the world take the time to let someone know they count, the same reason I do as much as I can.

I look forward to your next 50,000.

It is encouraging and it feels good when you post a project and here some good feedback. Its good for moral and confidence. there is a lot of kowledge out there there in LJ land….it feels good to know there are always some good people on here to answer questions who support each other.
