A heart-felt thankyou to each and every one of you for your words of congratulations to me for my first ever place getter.
It is with sadness though that it was the same day that Stan (aloha) Contrades decided to say good-bye to BP, he afterall is the reason I am called ddu (for donna down under).
I also want to thank my dear friend Sanjay (SJ) for his help with this image too - he was the second person to email me (after Heather from BP), so I can't ask for a better support from a friend than that!
BTW - I haven't taken the smile off my face yet!!
