Thank you very much, Uwe, and everyone! Thank you all for your generosity in sharing time and expertise on this site, and for all of your assistance in fundraisers for server fees and upgrades through the years.
We ain't Google, and we pre-date FaceBook. We are a private volunteer site that has grown pretty huge over the years, and your posts are what make it what it is! Looking at this changing world, David is looking into the possibility of apps for posting on BCN with smartphones and tablets, with automatic image sizing/formatting.
The 2014 BCN fundraiser will be launched shortly, updates coming soon. Wonderful donations have recently arrived (Thank You, Danny and Art!) for use in this fundraiser.
Here, the first ever BCN bead, created by Uwe of Chinese cane in 2012. It is amazing!
Thank you, everyone.
...the large Chinese cane was a gift from Joyce to me! And I had a lot of fun working with it!
Uwe, always the artist! Nice assemblage.....and of course, yes, a very happy birthday to BCN and thanks to all the contributors.....and of course Joyce and David who brought this to the web for all to enjoy
