    Default Thank you Pearl Dreams and GemGeek + Welcome Douglas (Sea of Cortez)

    As many of you know, Loretta and Blaire (PearlDreams and GemGeek) have been our fearless forum leaders for about as long as Hisano and I have been married!

    They've both done an amazing job and this forum wouldn't be where it is today with out them!

    Today they are passing the reigns to our long-time member and friend Douglas McLaurin of Sea of Cortez!

    Douglas will be taking over all admin duties of the forum going forward.

    Welcome Douglas!!!

    Thank you all...Pattye, Marianne, Kevin, Linda, Newberry...everyone!

    This forum has always been a special retreat, a place of sharing. Over the years my work became more and more entrenched so I would find it difficult to come here and share, but I would always come and see the forum growing, interesting reads and news...I mean: there is no place like the Pearl-Guide.com forum!
    In the wise words of Dorothy: "There is no place like Home".

    Heartfelt THANKS to Pearl Dreams and GemGeek Blair ... you have become both Heroes and Friends over the years, and there are no Thanks adequate! Hoping now that you are "retired" as admins, you will have more PG time to just come, and visit!

    Douglas, oh, Douglas, this is indeed the most WONDERFUL news ... we are delighted to know we will get to spend more time with you here! WELCOME!
