Happy new year to everyone.<br /> <br /> I know it costs $$ to keep a Website running, and a donation for this place is cheap. Yeah, I'm a goofball and I'm rarely real serious here because it's nice to hang out and have a few laughs. But I'll be serious for a minute.<br /> <br /> The benefit-cost ratio is quite high for me because I've personally met many very cool people as a result of being a member here. Yeah, a bunch of 'em have left, and a few have died (eternal peace be upon them), but a bunch (you all) have remained here.<br /> <br /> I've discovered new musical opportunities and have had the pleasure of playing with many supremely talented people because of their association with this little virtual clubhouse...and I've stolen their licks, which hopefully makes me a better player. <br /> <br /> With perhaps one confused exception (no, I'm not naming names; if you feel guilty, it's YOU!), everyone I've met through this site has been someone I'd consider a friend. <br /> <br /> I've also enjoyed helping a bunch of people improve their relationships with their guitars by sharing some of my experience--based on years of making mistakes on my own. Oh, I've got stories, trust me.<br /> <br /> So...kicking off 2018 here by dropping a donation in the jar. <br /> <br /> Thank you Chris, Rob, and the mods (we know who you are) for keeping the boiler filled with coal. <br /> <br /> Cheers everyone [raises glass]

Ditto everything Peegoo said. Picked me up a couple of stars a couple of days ago in celebration of the holidays and to say "Thank you Chris, Rob, and the mods". I'll keep contributing as long as this place is around.

As usual, Peegoo gets it right!<br /> <br /> Bought annual December re-up star at the end of November (even though I was pretty well tapped out by remodeling expenses) and consider it to have been money well spent. Plan to pick up another as finances allow later this year.<br /> <br /> Awww c'mon gents: divert a few bucks of that beer money to buy a star. CG, Rev, the Mods, the rest of us CMs and your liver will thank you!<br /> <br />

"Warrr-rrd, have you seen the Beaver? Wally said he saw him down by the creek with what looked like a bottle of cheap vodka."

I appreciate you guys more than you know. To those who have found the door to Moe's closed to non-CMs like it was most of the last 18 years and bitched about it to me in email in spite of the posted notice and discussions we've had over the years, sorry. When you keep coming to the party but let everyone else buy your drinks, well, you not a guest who will keep getting invitations.<br /> <br /> I know some plead financial hardship but a CM membership runs 8 cents a day over the course of a year.

Folks, when this place is gone, itâs gone. And there is nothing like it anywhere else. Itâs truly big value for the price.

That is true. The other 'popular' guitar sites are similar to the typical jackwagonry you see in the comments section of most YouToob videos.<br /> <br /> This place is different. In a good way.

"Yeah, I'm a goofball and I'm rarely real serious here because it's nice to hang out and have a few laughs. But I'll be serious for a minute."<br /> <br /> <br /> When Peegoo hikes up his big boy pants, sniffs and tweaks his nose with his thumb, ya best listen, Sunny Jim!<br /> <br /> ________________<br /> <br /> "And there is nothing like it anywhere else."<br /> <br /> Just note the level of the vulgarity, trolling and flaming that is tolerated on many other sites if you doubt that. In addition, there's wit and knowledge in abundance around here: I sure have had a lot of laughs and learned a lot of "stuff" since I found this place.<br /> <br /> As others have said: it's a bargain.

Yes this place is great place to come and lacks the snarkiness of some of the other places. I wasnât a contributing member at first , but itâs well worth the membership price to have Moe privileges. Thatâs where the interesting stuff happens.

Yeah, we saw you strolling the exhibition floor, filling your swag bag with mouse pads, pens, USB chargers, and coffee cups...<br /> <br /> Head over to the Big Ass Fans booth. They just tapped two kegs of Smithwick's and it's going fast.
