Default Happy Birthday to Us

Anne and Paul,

To use the old cliche, " I can't believe it's been a year".

For some reason you two invited a relatively new to cruising moose from north of the 49th parrallel cruise hicksville (Calgary,Alberta) to join the CruiseMates team.

You showed great leadership instructing me to write stuff <G>
It took some kind of guts to assume someone that sells rooms and drinks for a living could write legibly (sure there are many that say I don't).

I have to say publicly what a pleasure it's been for me to be involved in CruiseMates. The two of you have been amazing in your dedication, and drive to build a cruise magazine and community which overflows with valuable cruise information, and yet remains a friendly spot for cruise lovers to share real information and experiences.

But, from behind the scenes, what has impressed me the most is how open you've been to new ideas, and how you've grown the site by helping it to evolve.
Being a business owner, I know just how important it is to have bosses that listen.
You two really do listen to your writers, and to the site's users! And that's at least part of the reason CruiseMates is such a great cruise web site.

I'm truly honored by my assocation with you, and always say proudly.....

Thanks Kukester, I feel all warm and fuzzy now.

I also have to say that we couldn't possibly have done it without you! Talk about working behind the scenes and listening to our readers. You are the champ at that. We have the best staff possible, but the fact that you came in here to congratulate us publicly shows what kind of a guy you are.

I wish to take this time to publically thank all those that made this site possible, especially Anne Campbell and Paul Motter. Not only is this THE site for the most up-to-date and truthful information concerning cruising on the internet, but the scope of the information is so wide that there is virtually something here for everyone, novice and expert alike. Additionally I have discovered some wonderful friends, taken some great cruises, gotten great deals, and learned more about cruising than I thought I ever would. Again, CONGRATULATIONS and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the most outstanding Cruise website ever created!

CONGRATULATIONS and many, many more to come. If you've come this far in just a year, imagine five years. Keep up the good work. We all appreciate the hard work that staff has put into this baby. John
