Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Who really deserves that bottle of champagne from Jerome?

Why it's Fran, of course.  It was a delight for me to edge out the competition in the price of a barrell of oil contest,,,,and that delight is enough for me to savor.  But there are many on this site who make it such a delightful place for all of us, and Fran with her constant and consistent good work that starts our day (as well as her many other contributions) is wonderful and deserving.  

So it is my honor to say thank you to Fran, and donate my, or should I say Jerome's, bottle of champagne to her,,,having already checked with Jerome that he concurs, and he strongly does.  I know Jerome has great taste in champagne, so I'm sure you'll enjoy it Fran.  Cheers, and to a wonderful New Year.

OMG!!! what an early morning surprise (blush), thanks wchurchill. I don't really know what to say . Except, for this fall when I had sort of a burn-out, also do to lots of work outside of ET - I really love to have the opportunity to participate here on ET and to be of service. Well, and I hope you all will continue to enjoy the Salon and what ever I can chip in. So thanks again!  

And the bottle will be saved for a special opportunity. :-)

We love you FRAN.
