Nice to have you around again, @mom1000 !!! When you first joined the forums, you gave us some cute/embarrassing anecdotes from when Dan was little. Perhaps you could do the same for JJ now, in honor of this special occasion? :D

P.S. Regards to my inlaws when you see them. ;)

You are absolutely right quotation marks were not necessary for most of you!  I will reserve those for the few haters. Moms do not tolerate criticism of their children very well.

More than his encyclopedic knowledge of all things mileage and travel, and his incredible ability to dumb down and explain even the most complex redemptions to ensure anyone can take advantage of a good deal, I most respect @Dan for his positivity, mentchlichkeit and the way he deals with "haters".

As someone who put himself out there with a real name and picture, he's had to deal with everything from mild critique to hate-mail in a very public way. Some of the comments on the site and forum are downright creepy. Yet he's handled it all in the classiest way. I think this is a a huge testament to you and how he was raised.

So while we're all singing JJ's praises, L'chaim to you, and keep on enjoying the tremendous nachas I'm sure you are having.

Wow! Wow! And again Wow!!!
This is great!!!
after all the anticipation for the 10,000th post you absolutely did it justice!! congrats and to many more!
congrats. This is awesome!!
Well done!
When I wrote my own one day I will have to mention the do we had in house of dog after the Miami seminar.
   JJ well done and well written, really enjoyed your 10k post, if only we can get another one, just have this moved to js.

   And well done with the brief summary I asked for. :D

   What was that car rental idea all about? An incentive for those who read through your post? Competition with Dan and his United close in fee. Lol
  If guys only followed the DDMS you would have Hertz PC like myself which I have yet to use,and can stautes match to others for elite statues..

  Wishing you many more happy and healthy posts in the years to come.
  #WellDone
We would need to change his last name as well. Don't think thats going to happen!  ::)
MABROOK!! Beautiful post. Thank you for all your amazing work here. I definitely have a lot to thank the DD team for.

Havenít really been able to make it to a DO yet, but definitely seems like something Iíd enjoy.
Congrats!
.....and I'll take this opportunity to convey a belated thanks for the Siyum Hashas feed.
Great post!

Mazal tov!
Very impressive!!
Great post.

This post paid for itself just to wake up the @meshugener bear.
Wow! I can't believe it JJ! It was over 15 years ago in 4th grade, we were both chosen to run for 4th grade president and we ran campaigns to get the most votes from the class (I dont remember the outcome). To see where you are now and how you are really helping thousands of people (including me :)) is unbelievable! Keep up the great work!!!
ALOL!
Great post JJ. Thanks for all that you do.
Jj.  This has been a fun ride (not just to Florida or Israel)...

I'll just leave this here: the amount of dedication & commitment that JJ invests into DDMS + DDF is staggering. I'm glad I was part of the team.
Amazing @jj1000
as a very long time,  very casual observer (and an occasional JS contributor) I really enjoyed this post as well as it's ability to raise the dead :)
That was awesome and fun to read. Congrats JJ!
Iyh another 10,000!!!
Wow! Found a family member in the DO pic that I never knew was on here. Crazy.
Pretty epic 10000th post. I'm curious to see what the 10000th posts of the other members of the 10k group, were.
Thanks everyone! I had a lot of fun typing up the post, glad everyone enjoyed.

I guess our meeting did not have an impression on you - if that is the case, i take back the carlos and gabbys i bought you ;-p

great post!
Lol, I did remember that as I called you one of the cool kids ;)

Awesome post!
To echo Q274, i guess those single malt scotch bottles didnt leave an impression either ;) Although i vaguely recall one being given to someone for hitting a record number of HTs
Iirc, you benefited from that deal just fine yourself ;)

Is it a good thing that I got a mention here? Or does it mean JJ thinks I'm no longer active?

First of all, to you JJ, Mazel Tov.

Now to all DDFers, you should know JJ is a special neshama.
He's one of the most kindest person I have(n't) ever met.
We had a family medical emergency down in the south, and hewent out of his way to help us (he has connections with the right person ;) )
He even offered us to stay over shabbos with him.
So thank you for that!



What am I doing here?
Out.
Hey, this isn't my funeral ;)

Always happy to help when I can.

Wow, that was a long time ago. I think neither of us ever believed it was really a tie, and ya we split it for the year. Not that it actually had any meaning to it lol.

Good times :)
