    Loretta stepped in and helped me to stay on longer. She's been amazing as Forum Administrator and has my abundant gratitude. I love PG so much. It's an adventure, and one that Douglas is going to enjoy. I couldn't imagine a better person to help in all ways, but also to "shepherd" the content and add to it. To have an administrator that is a pearl farmer is a crowning achievement.

    I started in the Spring of 2013 in the background, bumping off spammers before I officially took over as Admin. That was around 2,810 days of Admin-ing. During my tenure, I estimate that the time I spent just bumping off spammers equals approximately 70,262 minutes, or 1,171 hours. The fight has reduced their activity, but you have to be vigilant or they come storming back. Occasionally, still, I will open the admin panel to find 25 new users all from one person using multiple variations of user names, email addresses and even IP addresses. Those are tedious, but easy to recognize and remove.

    Douglas is going to be the Master!

    Thank you for the Thank You-s, you are the best!

    Welcome, Douglas! So glad you are on board. Every day when I pick out my pearls for the day, more often than not, I choose my Sea of Cortez. They are so special. Thank you for these treasures, and being a treasure yourself.

    Oh Charlotte, how true! Howwwwww can weeeeee behave...

    Are you up for this? It’ll be fun! I’m remembering...isn’t Douglas the guy who was going to throw 10 SoC naturals into a room of ‘hopefuls’, and then slam the door???? Yaaaaas, I believe so. This will be interesting.

    Virtual hug, Douglas!

    (Gleefully hugging Charlotte)

    (and I haven’t met anyone in person! How lucky to know you guys even virtually)
