Blogs Will Be Coming!

Coins | Mike

Hi everyone. I know its been a while since I posted a blog. This is because of physical reasons and doctors orders. I hope to be back in about two weeks hopefully less time than that.
I feel like I'm not contributing to the site but I read some blogs and comment. This is all I can do at this point. However during this period I did become a Life Member. I know the ANA needs money and for given us this space to share make friends I decided why not. They have helped me many times.

I want to say thanks to the yng for writing good blogs. I think this is the best group that we have had in a long time. They share there wins and losses. Mostly wins. They bring back memories of when I first started. So I say to the yng thanks for sharing.

Below is the new card you get and new number .It also comes with a plaque. When I received it I felt very good that I did this.Those who can should consider becoming a life member. Your helping a organization that has that has helped thousands over the years. They break it down based on years you have been here and they set everything up. My plaque and card are beautiful. So think about it. You will be helping the group that helps us and only asks for a fee. For that reason I believe its worth it..

I'm having a hard time downloading the plaque. I will get that up so you can see what I mean. I told you I would get it. It means allot to me to give back what was given to me for free. New friends some blogs I read twice. I encourage more of us to write one. The research what I have learned here from other collectors you cannot put a price on. Of course with the good there is the bad. That's in every organization.


So write a blog or two. I'm sorry I have to stop. My eyes will not allow me to continue. I wanted you to know I'm still here and will be sharing my knowledge with you. This is a great organization. You need anything call they help. Were lucky to be members. Myself I'm proud. So keep writing every coin and token tells a story. Share one with us!! Thanks Mike

You contribute far more than you realize, even while not posting. And this is noticed by many, without saying as much.

Very nice Mike. A life member is perfect for you. I am proud of you and what you have done here. We are going through a tough time right now. I hope we don't loose many more folks. Way to go.

Beautiful plaque and card, Mike. Thank you for always supporting the ANA and especially this forum. I first became a member in 1977 but let my membership lapse for 25 years starting in 1993, I am proud to be back in the fold and prouder still to be associated with all the fine people that I have become associated with and befriended through this organization and specifically through the Member Blog, we have lost a lot of frequent contributors in recent months due to the disruptive and selfish behavior of a few who feel the need for points and standing trump any semblance of quality blogging. I hope they learn from your example and become good contributing colleagues but I have my doubts. In my own words.
