The current contender is on its way from France... Favorite Thread: Probably the Medieval Book reviews, since I am still keeping up with it (and would invite anyone to contribute who wishes). But I am a bit proud of how much interest was generated by the thread on the Champagne Fairs. Goals for the Next Five Years: I am still not happy with my photographs, and I think this is partly due to a lack of focus control I have on my current camera. Before the Covid lockdowns, I was going to go out and get a used digital SLR and some attachments. Now that we are opening back up, that plan is back on the table (unfortunately I missed the lockdown time to play with it, and admittedly dumped the money into coins and books instead!). So the goal is get a new camera, and get better pictures! I am tempted to add a desire to create a ‘wildwinds for medieval coins’ website which I have been contemplating in recent weeks. This could be a massive undertaking though, which I am not sure I am ready for yet. Supporter Status: This is also the time of year when I need to renew my supporter status! I had my CoinTalk anniversary and supporter status set to the same day (I became a supporter after my first year) but I think I missed it by a couple days last year. Oh well - whenever it comes time, it is money well spent to keep this community going! Okay, thank you for indulging me! You have all been a wonderful community that I am glad to be a part of. Thank you!
