Somehow, I think it would actually be rather fitting if a newcomer walked on on post 10,000 and asked "What's a doxie?" For as the first post was a warm welcome to all tranquility-seekers, the 10,000th post going to a new face is Shangri-la, followed by our welcomes, would also fit.

Sonal gets it. She truly understands the true spirit of The Shang! It's all about quality, tranquility and friendship, not post numbers.

Cameo, thank you for those truly touching sentiments. They are most appreciated. You truly are full of grace.......as in your pseudonym "Gracie".

Still, I concur with Sonal. It would be fitting and proper for a new person to post #10,000. Still, we should not make that much of a deal about that milestone, unless we intend to not post anymore and frame that one post. No, #10,000 shall zip on by, much like each other milestone posting. We shall see.

I still am amazed that The Shang has gone on for this long.............with seemingly no end in sight. Still, if it brings various people the laughter and momentary relaxation and tranquility that it has brought to me, who am I to judge?

Sinc, once again, great minds thinking alike. We were but a minute apart in our posts, which is something I always found interesting over the past couple of years. Paix, mon frere.

I am amazed that with all of these postings, only 117 different people have ever posted in The Shang. Think of all that has been missed by those non-posters???

We should have a "Welcome Home Again" Shang reunion. Just a thought.

Hmmm, something looks familiar about this . . .

Wait, something's wrong, where's the next page button?

I made it?!? I actually read all the way through to the end (at least what is currently the end) of the Shang!!!

I understand!!! I have achieved enlightenment!! It's all so clear now. I can see the light! And wait, what's that figure I see in the center of the light. I can't quite make it out, but it seems to look 3 times longer than it is high? I must head towards the light . . .

And, in case anyone is interested in a few more stats:

I completed reading the Shang in it's entirety almost 23 days after I started, although I was gone on vacation for 6 of those days.

From the time I started reading the Shang from the beginning, to the point of this posting, more than 1100 new posts were made.

That means approximately 11% of the posts in this thread were made in about the last 2.5% of its life.
