« Typepad's last three Tweets in their effort to clear up the upstream provider issue. Couldn't get on myself. Best way to make sure it's not JUST the site is to go to Typepad.com. If you can't get on there, it's not just the site. Geeeezzz!!!! | Main | Federer showing early signs of Dementia. The affliction is apparently related more to the number of kids than the number of years. Two more kids and Mirka will 'arrive'. Didn't know she was this smart!!!! »

RAJ and everyone,

You are living the life that I dream of. I am also an indian who immigrated here 19 years ago, now a med student, and am a die-heard in love with Federer Fan ever since I first saw him play on tv. I crave to play tennis when I can, and that is an extreme understatement. I've always wanted to fly, and hopefully one day will achieve this dream of having a private's pilot's license! The similarities are cool, and inspiring.

PS, I also read this website religiously and consider all of you my never ever met best friends!
First time I went to the US Open (my only ever time I saw any professional tennis) was 2013. And I only went to see Federer, ofcourse! (glad he won against Zemlja) was the most ecstatic ever in my life!

alex

Totally agree. Thumbs up.

Murph

What a surprise. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for your good wishes after TP placed Raj and me in a WOF category that at times is hard to believe I qualify. But I do.

Thanks TP for conjuring a WOF category I fit in since I failed in so many other attempts.

Why am I getting the feeling that TP is actually the Queen of England?

Hi Omkar, Thank you for your comment and welcome to our Planet community.

Bettyjane

HA!! Chip---maybe I you'll get an OBE one day.

Jenny

I also smiled at Chip's comment.

chipnputt

I think you have to be a Commonwealth citizen for the OBE, so I'm pretty much dead on arrival. But, really, think for a moment. The Queen's Birthday Honors List came out on June 14th. Coincidentally, or not so coincidentally, on June 14th TP does a TP Honors List -- 2 complimentary WOFs. Could it not be his way of saying -- OBEs for you but I'd have to disclose my identity to do that, so here's 's a WoF instead? Can you rule it out? How do you explain these new WoFs and their timing?

Congrats to Raj and Murph! Well done!

Stella

so my theory that TP is Jenny is not so far off the mark then. Look at her mailbox picture --- now that is one dame who would hand out awards or sentences

raj

I didn't see this post until late and what a surprise! I am speachless, to say the least. I consider it a tremendous honor. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your kind words and TP for making a special category just to accommodate the old among us! I guess being old has its own reward! Hope to hang around this forum for a very long time. Thanks again.
