good grief have I really been here 10 years? wow...... I must have been one of the first non US members

nice to meet all of you - sorry to those with whom I have lost touch, the friendships are still treasured.

lovely to see you again Bugsy

many happy memories of mucat radio (with a roomful of catters providing commentary on ICQ), hearme, paltalk...

and endless non fattening cheesecake at Shula's parties.

happy birthday us

Where would I be without Mudcat? I'm another who was introduced by Bob Bolton, around 2000, & I've looked in almost every night since (apart from interruptions like last week's holiday!) Mudcat is my homepage & a very important part of my life.

I've met some great people, in person & on line, & expect to sort out my photos in the next few weeks & send pics of Mudcatters in Sydney & Canberra to Mudcat (one day, soonish, maybe)

Happy Birthdya, Mudcat & Mudcatters! And many thankyous to Max for creating this wonderful site & Joe & Jeff & clones for maintaining it, and to all who contribute their knowledge.

From: Claymore
Date: 03 Oct 06 - 06:48 PM

I was first introduced to the Mudcat by CarolC, who was neighbor of mine, and first came on as a Guest in 98 as Carols Friend Don. She had some differences with the way I expressed my views, and later for several years I was GUEST: Claymore, due to the policies at one Federal agency where I worked. Later, I became a member although I have not posted for the past couple of months due to several reasons:

1. I realized that for all the flame I was sending or receiving, it was changing no-ones minds, and was creating bad feelings amongst folks I would later meet at the Getaways and turn out to really like. An example was when I had a heart attack and one of my first visitors was Bobbert, with whom I had carried a spirited reposte.

2. Life is what happens when you're making plans, and I have a daughter back in my life who I had last seen when she was 4. She found me by Google and some posts on the Mudcat where I had mentioned the Cultural Hub of the Known Universe, Shepherdstown WV. From there it was to a phone book where I have always left my name and number public, just knowing she would try to find me as soon as she become 18. She did great in her first year of college, but decided that now is the time to ride for USET (United States Equestrian Team) and is sponsored by a big farm in Middleburg, VA, the center of English style riding in the US.

3. At the same time I am now playing with Sam Rizzetta (founder of Trapazoid) and Maddie McNeil ( both whom I consider to be the God and Goddess of the Hammered Dulcimer and Lap Dulcimer) and in company I never thought I would end up in. This was after a journey that started in 58 playing to KT , PPM, the Weavers and Bud and Travis, and ended up as the only Marine Lt. in Vietnam with an autoharp.

4. I'll be sixty in two weeks, and never planned to live that long.

All in all the Mudcat has been good to me, although I never did get the answer to the first question I asked on the Mudcat; did anybody know where I could find the words and music to the song, " One Quick Martini". I finally ran across it a couple of months ago; it was the same as I remembered it, and that's another story.

Grateful Thanks to a group of people who set about with good intentions and well-executed plans, and provided their community with an invaluble and dedicated service. Were it to fall apart tomorrow, you would be remembered for many years...

Happy Birthday to Mudcat! And because Mudcat is made up of us all---Happy Birthday to all of us! (and so say all of us.......)

I joined Mudcat (at Bob Bolton's urging) early in 2000 and it has been great since then. Have met Catters in Oz, Canada and Alaska - to meet a Catter is to meet an instant friend.

I know making donations is a personal choice and not everyone can do so. I don't donate much, but if we all gave some it might help upgrade hardware and software and perhaps get some work done on updating the DigiTrad.

The link below is to the PayPal link and is an easy way to donate. There are other ways to pay if you do not have PayPal or prefer not to use it.

This link is just above the snail-mail address for Mudcat about 2/3s the way down the page.

I've been thinking about my stand-out memories of Mudcat and the first thoughts which come to mind are:

Me in 1997, sitting one lunchtime on one of the monthly team meeting days i.e. the only times our work team saw each other from month to month, and dialing up Mudcat to check in, have a giggle, see what info requests were there, and just get some social contact.

The women's song circle thread, and especially the wonderful Shula.

The amazing rallying round which occurred when catspaw scared us all silly with his medical "adventures".

When I met my first Mudcatters in real life: alison, Alan of Australia, Spider Tom and Bob Bolton at the 1999 or 2000 St Alban's Festival.

And the total, gut wrenching shock of reading of the passing of a great Mudcatter, Rick Fielding and others like Little John Cameron, and Animaterra's partner and Dave Bryant.

Mudcat has been an integral part of my life for nearly 10 years. Long live Mudcat!

I had been lurking for a little while before posting a request for the name of a song on May 27 1997. The reply was prompt and helpful, and above all friendly.

At the time I was very lonely and isolated, working in a job that meant travelling around the state and visiting organisations for a period of time and then never seeing those people again. I was working long, hard hours as well as studying in the evenings, and I couldn't go to the Tuesday night sessions that I had attended for 10 years since their inception, so Mudcat quickly became my lifeline to a constant social community based on mutual interests. My finances and my jobs since then have been in total chaos, but I am happy to say that now, finally, I am in a position to start donating to Mudcat. Every time I thought I was in a position to donate the financial walls came tumbling down again. I owe Mudcat, big time, and I intend to pay my dues.

Thanks heaps to Max, and everyone who has kept Mudcat going, and to this wonderful community. I have met only a handful of Mudcatters in the real world, but this community transcends the real world, as far as social contact goes. In my opinion.

Happy birthday, Mudcat.

Helen

Well I started 'cattin' seven years ago. In between then and now have happended a few things, principally the Mudgathering Euope in Brussels 2002,plus a move all the way round the world, lifetime stuff of not much interest to anyone else. plus I'm working my way into the partial capo. Have bought and sold a few guitars, and always there's been the 'cat. To amuse, entertain, to irritate and to enjoy.


Max and all the many clones and especially to Joe Offer, a toast?wish, old, ancient blessing:-

"May the road rise to meet your feet,
May the wind be always at your back,
And my the Lord hold you in the hollow of his hand"

Keep going, my friends....

Hooray! We made it! Thanks for the banner, Joe...and for the cake chrisg

(Joe is right on these things....he got the 1 millionth post a couple years ago. Now we are heading rapidly towards 2,000,000!.....)

but, I do think..*gasp*...that my title has been **EDITED** without asking my permission first! Perhaps this could be seen as an example of the Chief of the Current Mudcat Editorial Team imposing his will on a poor, defenseless memeber without.....*giggle*...permission, and could possibly...*grin* lead to *chuckle*...even more...*snerk*...abuses of our forum by.......*hee, hee, hee*...those who........*snort*..............ROTFL.....

...*wiping my eyes*....

What WOULD a birthday be without some topical humor?

but, seriously folks, I am privileged to have been here for this occasion, and in a couple of weeks, I'll reach the anniversary of my first post. With any luck, both I and Mudcat will still be around when it becomes 21.

    I have met personally a couple of hundred of you, and perhaps I will get to the UK and Europe and meet even more for music, gossip and ideas.

Thanks to everyone for helping make this place a great experience.....and thanks to Max, Joe, Jeff, Dick G., Susan of DT,...and all the others who keep the ol' wheels greased.

Reading over this thread, I realize that the astrological placements that I had previously posted for Mudcat's birthday are wrong.
I don't know what year/month/day I was looking up.
For anyone who's interested, here are the astrological placements for October 1, 1996 [Source- Neil F. Michelsen "The American Ephemeris for the 20th Century, revised 5th edition"]

Sun-Libra 8
Moon-Taurus 27 {as of 0 hr}
Mercury-Virgo 20
Venus-Leo 26
Mars-Leo 13
Jupiter-9 Capricorn
Saturn-Aries 3 retrograde
Uranus-Aquarius 0 retrograde
Neptune-Capricorn 24 retrograde
Pluto-Sagittarius 1
North Node-7 Taurus retrograde

Usually, Marquee works just fine on my browser (IE ... I know, I know. But it's what came preinstalled on this machine), but maybe IE's marquee and firefox's marquee don't quite speak the same dialect?

Anyway, I just clicked on my own screen name, to see how long I've been here, and the earliest hit that came back was August 18, 2004. And I know I've been here longer than that; on my personal page, my earliest archived PM (explaining how to search for threads, from CarolC) was dated August 17, 2001. So that's probably around the time I started posting as a member (just over half of Mudcat's lifespan). And I was using the DT here for a couple of years before that.

Does this make me one of Mudcat's (young) oldtimers?

My first post as a member was March 2001, but I'd been extracting songs from the DT as a non-member for a couple of years before that. Joined up because I suddenly felt guilty about taking out, so I hoped I could put something back. Don't know if I've succeeded in that aim.
The highlight for me has been the ability to meet Mudcatters in the UK and in the USA (for which I am especially grateful) and you just cannot wish to meet a better bunch of people.
Thanks not only to Max, but the whole bunch of guys who put in the effort to keep this site going; and guys lets not forget to do our bit with a few donations here & there.
Well done guys & Happy Birthday

Sham... "And the wish that this was heralding a more open and common sense approach to such things - for the next ten years on our forum."

I would like to thank and congratulate Max for ten years of just such open (mindedness) and common sense. The tolerence and dedication that this man has shown for free speech is true wisdom. It is something we all should strive for and support.

My hat is off to you Max. Ten years of allowing this forum to become itself, at personal, and financial sacrifice... true wisdom from such a young man... we should all learn this lesson.

Of course, as I stated previously, thanks to all those who make this site a success... even the trolls.

I first saw mudcat about 1953, I think it was. Caught one on a worm below the dam on the Mississippi. Ugly critter, lemme tell...oh. The Mudcat Cafe!!

If you would like to relive the drivel that I have posted over the years, please feel free to do so. If you don't want to -- and I wouldn't blame you one whit if you didn't -- feel free to contemplate this good-lookin' fella.

So Mudcat is another Libra. No wonder we get along so well! So from one birthday girl (c'mon, she HAS to be a female!) to another -

HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY MUDCAT!

As another '99er, I wish I'd come across the forum earlier when I first started my shameless plagiarism of the lyrics from the Xerox site.
Anyway, happy birthday, and let's hope the awkward adolescent years will soon be put behind us...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUDCAT & my thanks to Dick, Susan, Max, Dennis & all the other elfs & clones, my heroes.

Yes, time does flies when you're having fun. I just checked my 1st post was 12 feb of 97, I think I had been lurking about a month at that point. I had just fallen off a roof while working & broke both feet & the family was in terror, fear of being around me in housed 24/7. So it was decieded for their health that I needed a 1st computer. It saved them, I found mudcat while doing song researchs. Since then I've met many who I would've never come across otherwise, been to a lot of music gatherings where I otherwise would've never heard about or bothered with. I also found more of the histories & backgrounds to the songs I knew & didn't know & to songs I found here. Best of all though, was in meeting the posters for the 1st time & my 1st Getaway where there was, what I thought, a mass meeting of mudcatters, which really has turned into a great gathering of mudcatters & the Washington - Baltimore area folkies +, who most of us wouldn't have met if they hadn't have hosted us.

Barry

Is it really 10 years? I can honestly say that Mudcat helped me to rearrange the priorities in my life, and I will always be grateful for that. I only pop in now and then to see what's going on, these days, but should contribute more!!

For those who don't know, I organised the first two UK gatherings here in Wales, and then it all went european!!!

It's an important milestone for a site that has been running on expertise, a wing and a prayer, and here's to the next ten years.

Blessings, Bron.

And that should remove certain objections to this thread being above the line.

I am not sure that there have been any.

The point was only made - that somewhat surprisingly - it did remain and that there had not been any objections made (yet) in this thread about this non-music thread still remaining above the line.

And the wish that this was heralding a more open and common sense approach to such things - for the next ten years on our forum.
