It's absolute insanity to think about everything that's happened since I first joined this board way back in 2005. We've had 2 terms of Bush, 2 terms of Obama, that guy, and now Biden. And we've had the War On Terror and a major pandemic. We've had that guy's administration and the overturning of Roe V. Wade. This place has definitely been the one consistent spot that's kept me sane all these years. Now it's crazy to think that I've joined the 100K club!

I don't have anything else to add but... let's party!

You got to see the milestone! So often the good ones get overlooked.


Hopefully, we'll all be around when you reach 200,000!

With the way things are currently going, I don't think it will take me that long to reach 200k!

a certain number. Being you are driving, it is so easy to overlook it!

Hitting 100,000 is a big deal.

I heard millions of posts were flipped by demonic interference with the software! Some posts even ended up encircling poor, defenseless cows!

Congrats on the 6-digit milestone!

But, I read a lot of yours...I'm just less clever and more likely to delete rather than post most of what I think!

This place has been the same for me: the one consistent spot that's kept me sane all these years! (Other than having a husband who shares my view of the donald 100%!)

I changed it when they allowed us to change account names during the Obama election. And yes it is directly related to Office Space!
