Ummmm.......I think the best comment that I've heard, and Mrs Hainesy agrees, was when DJ said the other evening in Whangarei that Mrs DJ refers to the Forum members as his "imaginary friends"....!! :lol: :lol:

Indeed - well done Mental and co. As mentioned once prior, the KFNZ site is the most viewed in my browser and part of the daily routine. The forum has (by far) been the greatest source of info to help a novice out and I've even gained a few new mates too. :y:

I would certainly make the effort to attend an arvo bbq & :beer: to celebrate the milestone :rock:

Thanks guys it's ALL of us who make it what it is though :rock:

Just been looking at the website stats and comparing the last thirty days to the same time last year the site is just over double the size, twice the visitors, twice the number pages looked at etc etc

and just had a look the site is EIGHT times bigger than compared to 2009 :o
