First for the subforum?

As I logged into BF, I noticed, for the first time, that there were 50 people viewing the 50+ forum... 26 members and 24 guests... the most I had ever seen before was 41. A new milestone?

Fine folks around here so don't be surprised if any age group come and visit to snoop around and get some ideas from what we share on this board.

The down side is that it takes much longer to keep up with all the new posts.
