Rich has been actively contributing excellent information on this forum for many years. He always signs his comments "My 2 cents" Since Rich has contributing nearly 12,000 posts his contributions come to nearly $240. Think about that!

I enjoy Rich's posts a great deal. I have learned so much from them. Some of his comments on this forum were very instrumental in my piano education and in helping me with my choice of a wonderful piano. Thanks.

On a serious note, I too appreciate Rich's presence here. His posts are worth much more than 2¢ each! thumb

Rich Galassini’s posts are something I look forward to reading on PianoWorld. With his knowledge on piano restoration, coming trends and innovations in the piano industry, and business sense from his partnership in Cunningham Pianos, he willingly shares his knowledge with piano friends on this Forum. Thank you so much Rich!!!!

Maybe we should have a button that we can use to pay two cents if we particularly like a post.

Maybe even do the same if we particularly dislike a post with the author having to match the contribution before reposting. That would be a nice income stream of 4c per particularly troublesome posts for Piano World! Potentially a lot more if the post really upsets a lot of people.

Aww shucks blush

First time I am seeing this thread. Thank you for the kind words.

You know, I just enjoy it here. I have made friends, met lot of people (virtually, and some in person), and I like the camaraderie. Someone here once said that I am the perfect blend of piano geek and chat room geek. I think that describes me well (although all the chat rooms I visit are piano based).

My 2 cents,

My 2 cents,

Is that what they mean by Cheese-steak (not a Kosher dish)?!

Regardless, you certainly have stronger kishke's ( Yiddish word meaning, um, fortitude) than most other dealers, including me.

Well deserved accolades my friend.

Russell,

Of course you know that there have been Kosher "cheesesteaks" made.... but with no dairy cheese. I don't think you would be impressed.
