Let's all wish our celebrated co-moderator,

CORLYSS M. DRINKARD

a very happy birthday, celebrated March 29th. A day late is better than not remembering at all!

Happy Birthday, indeed, Corlyss!
"Most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives." ~Leo Tolstoy

"It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character." ~Dale Turner

"Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either." ~Albert Einstein
"Truth is incontrovertible; malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it; but, in the end, there it is." ~Winston Churchill

Dear Corlyss,

A birthday wish sent two days late simply makes the birthday three days long! All good wishes for the rest of this year, Evelyn (aka CI)

Many congratulations, Corlyss! I really appreciate the work you and Lance do with this forum. And it is always a pleasure to have discussions with you, both
heated poltical debates in the pub and pleasant conversations about music in the chatterbox.

Happy birthday, Corlyss. You certainly live up to that old adage "Better a Drinkard than a drunkard". Thanks for the encouraging and postive tone in which you approach the task of moderator. P.S. I made up the old adage, could you tell?

Happy Birthday, Corlyss!

Drinkard is really your last name? Wow, what one can do with that. Anyway, happy birthday, Corlyss.

Thanks, guys and girls. I appreciate the tidings. I had a nice day, which included brunch with a couple of friends and a carrot cupcake with a candle that played Happy Birthday.

Yes, my name really is Drinkard. I tell people to spell it 'drunkard but with an i." With my unusual first and last name, no mangling surprises me. When we moved to Arlington in 1955, we were the only Drinkards in the book and remained so for years. When I left in 2003, there were about 8 and I wasn't related directly to a single one of them. A cousin I never knew about in Texas tracked me down from my postings on the old MSN Classical Music Forum, while another very distant relative from Virginia Drinkards found my Flickr album and hailed me.

Why can't thee be civil at least once in wishing someone a Happy Birthday? This comment was not necessary and this was not the place for it. You can exchange your OWN thoughts with one another (of a personal nature) using our Private Message feature. That's why we have it. :cry:

In looking over this thread again, I am pleased to see how many posters thanked you for your work on behalf of all of us, Corlyss. I feel a bit remiss for not mentioning that in my own birthday greeting, so here you have to hear from me again to get your due and my thanks.
