 † †9th Feb 2003 was, apparently, the day i joined. †I had done a bit of lurking previously but only had my work lapdog until then. †
    So happy birthday TAW. †Huge thanks to Colin and the good denizens of the Folk corporation for setting it up and keeping it running.
 † †We have lost a few pals along the way, Ces, Gower Flower and the mighty Big Dave to name but 3.
 † †In the age of Fb and twitter its still a nice place on the interweb to pop into and see what's shaking.
 † †Here's to the next 17, i wonder how many of us will still be around for the celebrations then?

Apparently I joined in May 2004, but I lurked for a long while before I posted.
Iím so glad I happened upon TAW. Itís changed my life in many ways. As others have said, itís seen me through good times and bad and Iíve had amazing support from so many of you when I was at my lowest. Iíve found life-long (I hope) friends and a music family. Through it Iíve discovered so much new music, been inspired to go to many more gigs than I would have and because of that Iím a much more confident happy person. Iíve also spent a heck of a lot more money than I should have on cds, books and gig tickets. (YABB, itís all your fault) I honestly donít know where Iíd be if I hadnít found this community.
Happy birthday TAW, and thanks a bunch Colin x

Happy birthday TAW, I joined in April 2008.  Didn't realise how long I had been a member!  And I am definitely still a "new girl"!
