    Thank you, Scott.
    That 70281 restoration in FJ is one of the most exciting things to ever happen in our world, and Mandolin Cafe was there to break the news about it.
    Best site on the web.
    But Amsterdam was always good for grieving
    And London never fails to leave me blue
    And Paris never was my kinda town
    So I walked around with the Ft. Worth Blues

    I was new to the mandolin a decade ago and found a friendly group of real experts who really took me by the hand, gave me accurate advice and got me started on what continues to be a very cool ride. Thanks Scott for creating this community.

    Wonderful work, Scott. Hope you have another 21 just as good. This remains my favorite web site and I continue to be impressed with the knowledge of the monitors and the camaraderie (sp) of all the members. Thanks.

    And it's packed with advice and entertainment - a museum and park devoted to all things Mando - a site that's never dull.

    If anyone wants to take a trip back in time on the Mandolin Cafe check out this link to archive.org's Wayback machine. Pick the year, the blue circles are actual dates that a copy of the Cafe was archived.

    Thanks for making this one of my favorite place on the web. I'm a relatively late comer to the site ('09 I think), and I hope we can keep the party going for a long time.

    Love this site! Thanks so much for the hard work you and the others have put into it. Checking the forums and other stuff has become my go-to sanity break from deranged printers, virus-plagued Java programs and all the other manifestations of lunacy that go with IT work.

    Its pretty cool that the relevance of much of the articles and advice from wayback still applies today. Technology has changed, particular heroes come and go, but as players we still struggle with many of the same things.
    Indulge responsibly!
