Thanks Lou! Your too kind:) A real shock. I thought Globetrott would be there for the next 10 years.

    Bonjour Viviane! Merci pour tes bons voeux. :-) J'étais à Winnipeg et Ottawa depuis le 16 novembre, rentrée hier aprem. Reçu ton message concernant What's App. Je vais explorer ça et te ferai savoir si je décide de l'installer. Tout va super bien ici, je suis heureuse d'être chez moi pour ma fête, toujours une belle journée de réflexion. J'espère que tout gaze pour toi aussi. :-) Je t'écris sous peu (ici ou via email) et enverrai quelques photos de ma famille.
    Excellente journée à toi et aux tiens!

Thanks for your answer to 'Stop email notices'. Glad I'm not the only one

    You're very welcome. You're certainly not alone. On your forum, however, I refrained from going overboard about my dislike of such practices. Glad that was okay.

Ahhhh....and you're still here. Been looking around the old neighborhood after an extended time away. Miss you, my friend. Please, drop me a line? Much love....and a glass or two of some fabulous wine...

    Beav! So good to hear from you! Always exciting in fact, as though our irrepressible enthusiasm for everything VT is boosted just seeing your name. Feels like yesterday every time I see you.
    I'll go get the wine now! XX

Bonjour Lou! Happy 16th birthday! I would have like to have you with me during my trip to Mai Ndombe Province in the DRC. French is more widely spoken there than English.

Bonjour! Thanks for stopping by my Banff travel page - I've quite a few more tips to add, but I'm glad you think I'm off to a good start! And don't worry, building tips with the new layout is just as easy as it used to be :o)

I'm not sure how you've managed to be on VT 16 years. You don't look much older than sweet 16 :-)

    Yes. We've received an email highlighting those who have been on VT 16 years. A few weeks ago they started with those who have been on for 19 years. Obviously you didn't get these emails then.

    Thank you Malcom, for clarifying the mystery. :-) I don't receive emails from VT (other than policy updates or legal notices.) Cheers!

Congratulations Lou, on your 16th VT Birthday!

    Yes it is.

    PJ wrote his congratulations and that was the first clue. I told him that my VT Anniversary wasn't until 26 September. Then I found the external e-mail with all our names. I was shocked to see so many others, who joined in 2000 and are still active here. So many I've never heard of. Our community is soooooo much bigger than I would have guessed.

    Imagine being here 16 years next to so many others I've never met before. I congratulated each and everyone and so far made one new friend. :-) I Love VT!

    It would be nice when I could squeeze a weekend in the trip, but I just have to wait how things develop. PJ

    I understand. Advance planning for anything but work while on business travel is risky. We never know when we'll be free to go our way. (I was held up by office duties in Boston once & had to cancel a meeting with friends. Argh!) Just know that I'd be happy to hear from you when you're nearby. Cheers PJ!
