Happy Birthday, Darren. Hope you don't get a red square-shaped birthday cake.

I predict that this thread will be one of the longest ever, as we all greatly appreciate this fantastic website. Marty

Wow, you got that right!

Happy birthday indeed to all, and thanks again, Darren, for your vision and commitment.

Birthday tip: Oysters & steaks at Abe-&-Louis' on Boylston Street, a Fuente from Peretti's in Park Square and a walk through the Public Gardens and down the Comm. Ave. mall (a real 'mall'). Don't forget to read the inscriptions on the statues, there's at least one great naturalist there.

And wishing you all many more...,

--M.

Thank you to everyone for the nice birthday wishes.

Carmel had 9 presents and a card delivered to my office so I wouldn't have a boring birthday at work. Isn't that sweet? :D Thanks, Carmel, you are the best! Mwah!

And to think that I started this site when I was 25. Now I'm 36. Where did the time go? That was many hikes ago...tons of great memories and a lot of them were with people from the site.

Thanks

Happy birthday Darren. I remember 1969. I hate it when I can remember a year that someone was born in. Makes me feel old. :D

Have a great day. ;)

I'll be the first to wish Darren a happy birthday for September 20th, 2006 to infinity. (That is a lot of candles.) Gotta cover the my butt for when I piss him off. :D

Darren, hope it was a good one (that's what I get for not reading this forum every day).

Keep it up and you'll earn a place around the Saturday night fire with all the rest of us old folks! :D

Another late arrival. It always brightens my day to know that someone else is older than me, even if it's only a little, like in this case. Many returns, Darren. Thanks again for providing the forum through which I have met so many great people. I'll forgive you for the fact that I've also met Spongebob.

Happy Birthday Darren!

I remember visiting this site in its infancy back in the fall of '94, and it was pretty sweet then. Looking at it now, you sure have come a long way!

PS, how does it feel to have your "child" (VFTT) approaching the dreaded teen years?
