View Full Version : The Border Turns 2!

12-14-2008, 01:08 AM
Well it's that time of year again - Dec. 14 - the birthday of the Border (and, by extension, the old Flip City).

The Border has been around 2 years now, and we're doing pretty well, if I do say so myself. Thanks to all you posters here who make this community what it is, both new and old. Otherwise, this place would be just an empty shell.

Gratefully yours,

Cool!!! Happy Bday The Border!! (Im bakin' a cake!)

Nancy, you've done an amazing job here. This is by far and away the best fan site on the internet for any band that I have seen and that's due to your talent and dedication. A BIG thank you and CHEERS!! :cheers:

Aw, thank you so much ticky!

Happy Two Year anniversary! Soda, I will echo what Ticky said-you have truly done an amazing job on this fansite, and I am grateful for all your hard work. I love coming here, and find it a warm and friendly place to be. Who else but all of you would understand how I feel about the best band on earth??:thumbsup:

A job WELL DONE Soda.

I'm eatin' a piece of cake in honor of the event. I'd bake one, but alls I can cook is coffee (and you might question the coffee part!)

Now I have an excuse to eat some cake. Happy birthday to The Border and congratulations Soda! This could well be one of the most awesome fan sites on the web. If there is something to be known about the Eagles (and other things) It can be found here. This site is like one big ongoing Eagles concert, a great band with lots of friendly fans.

Happy Birthday Border and Congrats Soda! :partytime:

Congratulations to The Border on its 2nd Anniversary.

I echo what everyone has said here. This is a great community for Eagles fans to have fun and get information about America's greatest band.

I have been around from the beginning, so I know all about the endless hours that Nancy devotes to making The Border and the entire Eagles Online Central network the great sites that they are. I am very grateful to her for it.

But as she said, the hard work would be all for naught if not for all of the members who come here to post and share their knowledge about the band. Thanks to everyone who contributes information and/or donates money and time to make this such an enjoyable, fun, and enlightening place to visit.

Here's to more years of continued success for the band and The Border!!!

:cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Great Job and Thank you SODA For all your hard work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12-14-2008, 04:48 PM
Thanks again for all the kind words people! To celebrate, I've created a new board style with a "Long Road Out of Eden" theme, selectable at the bottom!

12-14-2008, 04:50 PM
WOW Soda!! Very cool!! I love it!

12-14-2008, 06:07 PM
I also really like the theme Soda. Great contrast!

12-14-2008, 06:29 PM
Aw, Nancy, thanks again for making this such a great site for Eagles information and for fans to get together. You are very much appreciated!

12-14-2008, 07:08 PM
I echo what Dreamer said (she always gets it right). Congratulations to Nancy for all her hard work. Those of us who've been here since the very beginning appreciate all the contributions of our growing list of members.

And the new Border style is awesome, as usual. :thumbsup:

12-14-2008, 10:05 PM
Happy second birthday to The Border! I've been here since the beginning too, and I can truly say I have enjoyed every minute of posting here. Thanks to Nancy for all her creativity and hard work on The Border and all the sister sites, and thanks to everyone else who makes posting so much fun!

Well, thanks for the compliment, FP. However, I'm sure have we'd have a hard time getting consensus from my family about that. :wink: :wink:

And Nancy - I love the new LROOE board style. Now, you are going to have to make a style for all of the other albums as well.

12-15-2008, 12:30 AM
Thanks again, guys! And good idea dreamer - I'll get on it when I have time.

12-15-2008, 06:51 AM
Happy Birthday to the Border and Congratulations Nancy on 2 years. I would also like to say a big Thank You for all you do on here as well as with the other sites. You have done an amazing job!!!

Congratulations and Happy Birthday to the Border from me as well. And may I too echo all the compliments to Nancy who has made it such and entertaining and informative board.

It is a credit to you Nancy.

Also thanks to Dreamer GEF, Julie, DF, and TF for all the hard work they do moderating the board and keeping it free of Spam and other unwanted garbage!


Heres to many more years 'On The Border'

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BORDER!!! Thanks to Nancy for all her hard work and creativity. I know this takes up a big chunk of your daily life and I, as I'm sure everyone else is, am very grateful. It is one of the daily things I do and am so glad I found it and have created so many "cyber friends".

Here's to many many more years at the Border!!:cheers:

12-15-2008, 02:11 PM
Let me add my thanks and appreciation for all you do here, Soda. This is such a fun place to interact with all the best Eagles fans alive!


Long Live The Eagles!

I'm having a chocolate to celebrate!

12-15-2008, 02:13 PM
Ah, I feel all warm and fuzzy! Thanks!

But again, let me extend my thanks to my moderators and all you guys who come here and make it fun!

12-15-2008, 08:58 PM

I find it amazing that this site keeps so many people (myself included) happy and interested and connected---both with the Eagles and with each other. I can literally lose track of myself and time while I read and write on this site...and utterly enjoy doing so!! (Well, except for uploading photos...not so enjoyable to do, but very gratifying to view once accomplished!) And I don't hesitate to say that you folks here are probably the only ones who could even fathom what I am talking about! This is a great community; and I'm glad I stumbled across it, and then got reeled in! :wave:

12-22-2008, 06:31 PM
I absolutely agree with everyone. I found the site after I had purchased my tickets to the September 24 Chicago show (sure wish I would have found it before purchasing the tickets - I've learned alot here about that)

Anyway, if you ask my hubby he would probably say I spend too much time here, but I love spending my time here with you guys!

And Soda, your dedication and attention to detail is so much appreciated!

Thank you all and Happy Birthday Border!

12-22-2008, 09:55 PM
Thanks again. I want to add that I love how The Border has enabled me to hook up with a lot of cool Eagles fans in person as well as online!
