Default you guys are great!

just wanted to say how much i like coming to this forum every day. everyone is so nice and supportive of each other. nice, good, constructive positive feedback. and everyone is so friendly. i can't help but notice that this panny forum usually has the most viewers and posts. i guess us panny lovers are extra special folks. glad to join you guys and keep up with you guys!

p.s. nothing to do photography wise, but today i'm giving myself a big present. it's been a monumental year for me. recently reached my goal of losing 100lbs! and am turning 50 in a few months. i'm getting a tattoo today. whoo hoool (and wish me luck)!

100 pounds! That's a big achievement Mary! Congrats! Go for outdoor photography every day for the next few months, you will lose more weight and learn more photography!(just kidding, don't take seriously!) All the very best in all your efforts, photography or otherwise!

Wow Mary losing 100lbs is something you really should be proud of, congratulations.

I agree about the great people posting on the forum, I just wish we had more people join in.

I agree 100%!! I also participate on another photo forum, and the Panny forum people there are also famous for being kind and supportive. Some of the other forum posts are really cruel!!! It must be a Panny thing, glad I'm an owner!

Congrats on your weight loss, I know how difficult that is, once you hit 50....really, I know. Good for you, we are all proud of you!

Wow Mary, Congratulations! What a wonderful achievement!

BTW, I agree about the kind folks in this forum, of course including you! It always feels like "coming home", when checking in this forum! Everyone here has also kept my interest in taking photos at an all time high!
