    Hi Michael. Congratulations on reaching the 20K milestone. With my on and off again forum participation this last year, I finally reached 19,130 today. However your success is due to your great forum presence, your old Roman coin and the excellent archeological threads. Keep up the great work Michael, and may 2019 be even better.
