    I have been awarded with the mu-43 "Medal of Distinction".
    I wanna say thank you to the owner of this site, the (super) moderator(s), administrator(s) and members, they all contributed to this site on their own way which I appreciated a lot. Thanks to all of you I got this great award.
    Thank you!:2thumbs:

    :thiagree: It's so true that the members make this site what it is, Herman. We'd be lost without each other! However, you were given this Medal of Distinction because of your continual upbeat encouragement as "The Stimulator of Photographic Images" in your many wonderful image threads. This medal is our way of thanking you for your gifts to all of us here.:th_salute:

    Herman,
    Now that you won the prestigious award, it's fitting that you buy everyone a bottle of wine.
    Thanks for you support and efforts.
    Don


    PS.... Admin trick...
    Just post a photo of a nice wine and let everyone download it...
    It just may be a cheaper way out.

    I think they are all manageable but one - transportation might be tricky. Did the medal come with any type of monetary award?

    Congrats!

    Just bought 366 bottles of champagne today (a bottle a day keeps the doctor away, I like to think :)) so maybe we'll find a bottle to share ??

    Bill,
    Your the bartender. You have a great bar.
    Make mine a Half & Half and drop a shot of good Russian Vodka in.

    Richard,
    Nah... That's why I like AF. I'm to oldt to focus after a few shots.
    I've been known to shoot a few shots on the streets of Philly, New York, Paris, London, Moscow.......

    Absolutely! No serious photography allowed, unless Amin pops in.
