    Congrats Doug! You're one of my favorite writers here and your article about apartment-hunting was how I first came across this website. Thank you for all 5000 posts!

    Congratulations and well done, Doug. Does it count that you reached 5000 using a post to announce the event?

    I sure hope so. If not, then this one will put me over the top!

    Awww, shucks! Glad to repay the favor -- after all, it was a spring day in 2007 that I was first making the decision to move to South Beach and wrote into this site to ask for advice! I'm happy to be able to have been given a voice and a place where I could share my thoughts. Thanks for your friendship and support all these years!

    And each of those 5000 hits made contact square with the barrel of the bat.

    You're the man !

    Default Happy Happy Joy Joy!

    Doug, the even-handedness, quality, wit and information of your posts are a joy!
    Hope you will get back to town soon to celebrate!

    Plus, who will forget how you 'delivered' that tray as 'Mark' in General Hospital!

    I second this, thank you Doug for everything. (Without you I would not have discovered the Meridian Market lol!)

    I'm just curious..is everyone who's approaching their 5000th post keeping an eye out for it so they can make it a special post? I'm not really keeping track because I just wanted to see what my post would be naturally..but then I'd rather not have it be something totally silly, like about Ginger's fleas or something.

    Dunno, the way I read it NOW it says Mark!

    This is a great clip! Mark is a 'great' guy! The other actor says so! (The good action starts around 3:36)

    You're welcome for starting this trend.

    Nice work Doug. You've somehow managed to make it 5000 posts without thoroughly pissing me off or sending me into a rant. Which is pretty much damned impossible.
