    I can't thank everybody enough for coming to my party. I am appreciative not only for all the people who came, but those who intended to come as well. Some of you know me well and some I was just introduced to. I am very grateful to meet all of you. Barbra Streisand said it well in her song "People who need People are the luckiest People in the world" . I am one of those lucky people.
    Thank you again Melanie, your friendship is priceless.
    Thanks Rich for making me a Co-Organizer. It will be a fun year.

    Since it is tonight and there is one spot left and I don't feel like going to the gym, I am going to 'crash' and join, even though I know no one. See you there.

      LisaMarie thank you so much. Very nice thing to say. I'm looking forward to it very much so.

      January 24, 2014

  • James D.

    Fyi my GPS says it takes 15 min from the outback to cardinal O' hara high school

    January 24, 2014

    • Marie

      Shouldn't take that long...up NFB to the 290 west, off at Delaware North, and the school is on is the 2nd or 3rd street after the exit. Traffic can get pretty thick on "the boulevard", so maybe your GPS is smart enough to know that?!

      1 · January 24, 2014

    • James D.

      Its funny how that is. Mine says the Falls Boulevard to Brighton to Delaware Joseph to O'Hara. Kind of one big U

    cant make it Jim... but HAPPY BIRTHDAY ..

    1 · January 24, 2014

  • Elaine H.

    Best wishes Jim. At present, I don't think I'll make the dinner...it's over 100 miles (return drive) for me, but I hope it's a great evening for all.

    1 · January 23, 2014

    • James D.

      Thank you so much Elaine I really appreciated it

      January 23, 2014

    • Elaine H.

      Je vous en pris.

      January 24, 2014

  • James D.

    As my lucky day approaches, I want to thank everybody for the best wishes. And the people who make it to my party, just your presence is present enough for me. I feel honored, I'm so lucky to have a good group of friends. And I really want to thank Melanie, who's friendship and support in the time I have known her, is truly a blessing and a miracle beyond compare.

    2 · January 23, 2014

  • Cindy D

    Just an FYI, I may also be one of the "later" ones..gonna try to get out of work a few minutes early. looking forward to it!

    1 · January 23, 2014

  • Patricia J.

    I am new to group and don't want to 'crash' a birthday gathering. But- have a ? for future reference. Do you split the bill by number of people or pass it around and trust everyone puts in more than enough to cover them? Like knowing how things work in advance. Thanks!

    January 23, 2014

    • Karin

      Patricia, people pay for what they ordered, plus tax and a good tip. We can help figure that out if necessary. We avoid asking for separate checks with a large group as it's extra work for the server. We can figure it out quite well. Good question!

      1 · January 23, 2014

    • Patricia J.

      Appreciate it. Like it better this way. As a non dessert eater and limited drinker it is tough for me to speak up when the bill is divided by number of people. That can raise my bill $20 sometimes! Like your way! ( I am not cheep- always put in more than I owe, but don't like having no choice but to pay towards others' meals.- I work for non- profit!)

    Hi Everyone! So here is the scoop...our reservations are at 5:00pm under my name. I know some of you may be a little late, as it's a Friday and traffic will be crazy. For those of you who are attending the BBC Concert after, the show starts at 8:00pm (doors open at 7:30). Any questions, please let me know!

    January 22, 2014

    • Peggy N.

      I will be one of the late ones! I will try to leave work at 4:30pm so I won't be too late. I'll let you know when I'm on my way!

    Happy Birthday Jim! I will join you for the afterparty!

    Don't know if I can make it. Jim I've you a couple of Happy Birthday notices already on this site. Don't know if you've received them you didn't reply. So Happy Birthday again.

    January 13, 2014

    • James D.

      Thank you. I thank everybody and will do so in person on that day.

      But if I missed anybody I truly apologize. I don't always see every post.

    I just noticed this meetup as I have been having trouble keeping up with my emails lately. Sorry I couldn't make list.

    1 · January 12, 2014

    • Debby K

      Thanks Melanie. So glad I can join Jim's birthday celebration. Jim, you sure are a popular guy! Yes, it was fun bowling Fri. night. It was good practice for me as I just joined a once a month league that started today.

      1 · January 12, 2014

    • James D.

      Meet ups has been a huge eye opener for me and I appreciate the people I have met and befriended.

      1 · January 13, 2014

  • Karin

    I think it is lovely that Melanie posted this dinner to celebrate Jim's birthday. Setting up events takes time & effort. Let's be respectful of the host and abide by the rules/limits. We should not create more work for the host. If someone wants a large dinner meetup, then you can post it. This is an intimate birthday celebration. The host is not concierge. Please be respectful to all those who host...or they may not want to host again.
