Monte just pointed out that today is my 3 year anniversary on LJ and I just wanted to say “THANKS”.

I have learned more here than I ever imagined possible.

I have made a lot of friends that I never would have known had it not been for this site.

Thanks again and I’ll try hard to repay the debt I owe you all for educating and putting up with me!

Congratulations Andy!
I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anyone learn from the teaching as quickly as you have, often out-pacing the teachers!
You have been a welcome addition here my Friend, both encouraging and inspiring on your own…
Keep up the Great Work, and Best Wishes to you for many, many more years on LJ’s!!

Happy anniversary, Andy! In addition to learning from you about woodworking, you are also a wealth of knowledge about animal issues too (like shop snakes, for instance).

As was said above, you have passed many of the teachers. And you have inspired many of us. Thank YOU for all you do for this site and the folks who lurk here.
