Don't just have bread, Floyd, have cake and lots of it.  And I too thank you for this site; it's amazing the amount of information I've garnered here, just by poking around.

Happy Birthday, Floyd :-)

Thank you for this site. We need more things like TFL to bring a little joy into our daily lives.

This is a good opportunity to express appreciation for this terrific site - by far the best bread/baking forum on the web, in my opinion. That's due to the layout and design (yours, I believe), the very professional moderation, and the generous spirit of contribution from members that flows from that. A lot of effort must go into the running of the site. From a grateful beneficiary, thank you so much.

I really can't thank you enough for creating such a wonderful space like this and keeping it as the most welcoming, inspirational and civil place for us bread geeks to unleash our obsession!

Many happy returns for you, and long live TFL!

May we all celebrate many more with you. But tell me, what kind of birthday bread did you have?

You only have 100 more years; use them as wisely as you have the past ones  :-)

Happy Birthday!

Thank you all so much!

I'm actually "celebrating" by spending much of the weekend at a software conference.  Not my first choice of ways to celebrate, but they didn't ask me which weekend to schedule the conference!  

The conference has been quite worthwhile. Hopefully many of the Drupal tips and tricks I'm learning here I'll be able to apply to TFL in the next few months.  Like yesterday I attended a big discussion about WYSIWYG Editor Best Practices since I know that is one of the biggest pain points here.

Tonight there will be cake, and perhaps some bread too.

Thanks again, all.

for your birthday Floyd, and hope the conference was not too stultifying when you really wanted to celbrate with bread and cake.

You have been learning about WYSIWYG and I've been researching polish/russian/ ukranian pierogi, varushka and like items. You might have gotten the better deal, since at least you will be able to put the learning into action before me!

At the cost of being one week late I hope my happy birthday still applies :-) Thanks for having laid the foundations for this fantastic community!
