Default Info 4 those who donated to Daven's bday gifts

I want to first say I am sorry that I am unable to contact you each individually and did not get this info to you sooner. It has been almost 2 weeks now and there is no hope left for our desktop computer! Looks like I have lost everything on there -- emails, my favorites, any great document that I have copied from here! But that is ok I shall be ok!

Thank you all so very much for your generousity and trust in me. Thanks to all of you we were able to give Daven a $75 gift certificate to Fandango.com (movies), $150 gift certificate to Ruths Chris (steak house) and $535 in gift certificates to Amazon.com!!

Daven was surprised and overwhelmed with everyones generousity. From the cards to the many gifts he received!

It just goes to show that when we unite we can do awesome things!

Hugs to you all

He very much deserves it. And if he wants to sell the elephant card I gave him there was someone who wanted to buy one on my gallery site. Put it on eBay and make a fortune. I wish!

Default Shelley, thank you

Hi Shelley

Great to hear the update and thanks so much for getting it organised. Glad to hear Daven was a little overwhelmed, for his part in a great site like SCS, he deserves some recognition.

Thanks, Shelley for handling all that! I am so sorry your PC had to pay the ultimate price.

Daven, you completely deserve it! Take Tracy out as I'm sure she would like to see more of you than she has lately lol! <and those cute kids of yours !

Thanks you guys! But you all really deserve a bow for being so generous and kind. I also received some awesome cards! Thank you all so much! If you put a message in there that I have not answered yet - I will get to it - I am just slow these days!

I did have a helper Tasha helped me to send out all the emails we could in a matter of a couple days and helped to respond to them as well!! She is awesome for helping me!!!

a *little* overwhelmed? I noticed when Tracy posted the thing about sending me cards. so I figured I'd get some cards, and that's always fun. but presents too! holy cow, unbelievable. and the nice thing was, Tracy probably loves Ruth's Chris even more than I do, so it's a gift for her as well.

the biggest casualty of all this right now - the growth of the site, me working full-time and trying to do this too - is my family. I'm trying right now to transition away from my job, to build a business around the site and other projects. but to do that takes every free hour I have, and more. it's been tough on Tracy and the girls, and me too. it has to be a transitional thing; working essentially two jobs could never work as a permanent arrangement.

I say all that to say that it meant a great deal to me when you all spent your own time and money to send notes and cards and gifts. we were out of town this weekend, and when we got back there was a birthday card for Alex (she's turning 7 May 16th) in the mail from one of you (can't remember who right now!). wow, what an unbelievably nice thing to do!

I hear thank-you's from people just about every day in one form or another, and it never gets old. quite often I feel like it's me who should be thanking *you*, and not the other way around, because so many of you make contributions to the community that can never be adequately repaid.

so yes, thanks again for all the presents. we haven't even had time to go to dinner yet, but it's definitely in my back pocket as soon as we have a free weekend!

You both deserve it!

I love it when we can all come together and play nice.

Enjoy your dinner when you get a chance to go.

Edited to say: Thank you Shelley!

First off, THANKS so much Shelley for organizing this.....I know you had a TON of time wrapped up in this to pull this off! It was fun to be part of Davens birthday surprise!


Secondly, Happy Birthday again to you Daven! You truly deserve every "thank you" and "cyber pat on the back" you get!! We know that you have put a TON of time and hard work into SCS for us! Please take care of your family too...they should remain right at the top of your priority list. But we would be thrilled if your working situation works out that you can build a business around the site and other projects too!! Good Luck!!

Daven,
I would hope that instead of waiting until you have that free weekend, you CREATE the time and let something else go. Make your priority you and your family for a change and put US on the backburner!

Yeah! What they said! Go to a Mariners game, too, while you're at it. We owe you one, man!

I agree with everyone else!


Daven - you deserve that and more. But what you deserve even more is to ditch the site for a weekend and go enjoy your family!!! We'll live - you proved that when we took the forums down. We promise not to whine when you go for the weekend! Enjoy it!

Also, thanks Shelley for putting all this together! (You too, Tasha!) It was a great idea for a great person who keeps this site going for us!

Who's Daven?
















Just kidding, yes I know I know.... D you just have to have to have to go to a Mariners game, catch a fly ball and get it signed...then you must go out to eat and anything having to do with SCS is not allowed to be discussed during dinner!!! LOL
You have fun no matter what you do, you hear?



PS I think you are tops too!

Ditto to the kind words expressed to you, Daven. The dedication of you and Tracy to this site is totally amazing and is deeply appreciated! (But please don't sacrifice your mental or physical health for it).

Thanks to Shelley also for organizing the birthday surprise and giving us a chance to give back a tiny bit to Daven.
