After over a year of starting the tradition and initiating Wednesday image threads every week, Jose Angel recently informed me that he would like to step down from doing that in early 2010. However, he will start the last Wednesday thread #53 for 2009 on December 30. My first reaction was "No way, Jose." I would like to once again thank Jose for his tireless effort for over a year. Hopefully he can continue to participate in this forum, including the Wednesday threads. We are fortunate that Matt Laur has agreed to initiate those threads starting from the first Wednesday in 2010, which is January 6. Since Jose lives in Europe while Matt is in North America, the timing when those threads will start may shift a bit, but we understand that we very much are an international forum with members posting from New Zealand, Australia, Japan, India, the Middle East thru Africa, Europe and all the way to Hawaii. We'll try to make sure that the Wednesday threads are available at a convenient time, but you get almost an entire week to contribute. There is no rush. Please join me thanking both Jose and Matt. Believe me, it is not easy to perform like clockwork and start a thread on time week after week. I can only wish we had more members like them making positive contributions to this forum so that everybody can benefit. And happy holidays to everybody.
