I just spotted a little birthday cake next to Frank Baxter's avatar. I think congratulations would be in order, and a hearty thank-you for graciously hosting these forums!

For he's a jolly good fellow... (3x)

Now Europe awakes to greet the happy morn',
On which our founder, Frank, was born.

With voices raised and flags unfurled,
We salute you, Mr Piano World.

I wish you a very happy and healthy Birthday, and Thanksgiving while I am at it. I hope you and Cathy have been staying warm these last few days. Are you missing Florida, yet?

Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone, much appreciated.

Nosy Ape, Kathy misses her family but not necessarily Florida, I don't miss Florida at all (although I may change my tune by February :-)

Best,

Frank B.

Hey Frank,

I sent you a musical birthday card on Facebook early this morning, but wanted to join your friends on PW in wishing you many happy returns! While I'm here, I might as well extend you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!

I second all the above!
Hope it was a great day.
