    Today is a special day for taking a little time out of our busy days to think about and give thanks to all the things important in our lives.

    I would like to offer a special thank you to Phil Crane for giving us these discussion boards. He has created an amazing community full of the most wonderful, knowledgeable, giving and caring people you could ever hope to meet. Even if we can't see each other, we have all been touched in some meaningful way by many people here.

    Phil works long hours to run his business to provide ethically and properly grown plants...and to keep these boards going. It has grown from an idea into something truly amazing. A place to bring together people from all over the world who share a common interest and love in carnivorous plants and plants in general. This is a wonderful place to communicate, exchange ideas and learn, talk shop, to trade or give plants and to have a little fun. He works loooooong hours "behind the scenes" for us. And lets not forget his helpmates, admins and staff too.

    So raise a drumstick, a hambone, a lobster claw, a hunk o' Toffurkery or a carrot stick in honour of our highly esteemed Phil...he's Da Man!

(Even if sometimes you want to spank us and put us in "time out".) hehe

    Much love to you, Your Royal Cuteness!

    I want to add my belated thanks as well <burp>! Phillip, you are truly an amazing man. In a world of "who cares" you have demonstrated and continue to demonstrate your care: both for the plants we love, and for the growers of them. When I found ********** it was still an infant, mostly kids having fun. Over the years I have been here (short years, but full of growth and excitement!) I have watched children evolve into skilled growers and teachers, and have seen this community reach to all corners of the Earth we share: and it IS a community, a true community filled with support, knowledge and most importantly: sharing. From your initial generosity of providing this truely FREE public forum, all manner of good things have spread: plants, knowledge and international goodwill. I have never been part of a finer group, and cannot concieve of a finer model community, a structure that has evolved and called to itself the best the world has to offer. Its a place for children to play and learn, as well as a meeting place for some of the best minds and scholars. It is a haven which encourages the preservation of our Earths most amazing biodiversity, and preserves as well the childlike wonder that we all hold in common for these amazing species. I have been blessed in my life with many fine things, and I am thankful for them, but none so much as this place, this HOME. In my book, success is not measured by what you have, but rather, by what you give - and you, my friend, are a towering success!

    Or as our younger members would say: "YOU ROCK, DUDE!"

    I wish you and yours all the good that you deserve, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such a MAN!
