Congratulations particularly to Frank and to all of us, as well, who make this place an irresistable stop in our daily travels!

Dearest Frank:

I think I can speak for almost all of us when I say that this forum has made a huge impact on not only our piano interests but also as a wonderful way of reaching out to those who share our love for piano.

We will be eternally grateful to you...

Love the graphic, yes, that's exactly how I feel :-)

I've already fielded a couple of inquiries (before we hit a million posts).

I'm holding out for the call from Google :-)

I was so knee-deep in multi-tasking of deadlines for the good part of last week that I had missed all of this grand celebrations and so, better late than never.

My deepest gratitudes and a big thank you to Frank and everyone for helping to make PW possible and the process of learning how to play the piano an absolute joy!

Cheers!!!

Somewhere, somehow, sometime - things just went right. Frank - when the definitive history of the Internet from DARPA days onwards is written, someone will, I am sure, be mentioning how this forum got 1,000,000 posts.

And when its 20th edition appears - this fact will still not be expunged.

Mark my words.

Well done!!!!!
