I'm amazed nobody else seems to care about this. Happy 5th anniversary forum!

Thanks KYM.  I'm glad the forum is still functioning 5 years later.  I think in the world of the internet that has to be considered a fairly long life!

I notice that of the first 25 people to register in May 2006, besides me only Seth has posted recently, though I'm still in touch with several of the others, some of whom I hope might yet return occasionally.  [Brothers Bummer & Lupo & their father Jim, Agnes, and HenryII are all people I knew from the SSPX chapel in NC before I started the forum.  I knew kjvail from FreeRepublic and had met him in Indianapolis, but he is no longer a Catholic and probably not very interested in monarchism anymore either.  I met monarchylosangeles (2006 & 2008), DominusTecum (2010), InquisitorGeneralis (2006 though he subsequently inexplicably cut off all contact, so I'm sure he won't return), and Martinus (2009) in person subsequently; I communicate on Facebook with Lord Alf, BlueEmperor, and WhiteCockade, though I haven't met them.]

Wait a minute, kjvail's no longer a Catholic!? He's listed as one in the big demographic survey.

Oops, forgot to tell you.  Yes, he converted to Presbyterianism awhile ago.  I haven't seen him or kept in touch much since, though we're still Friends on Facebook.  Still boggles my mind--he was such a Habsburg loyalist, and of course the Habsburgs crushed Calvinism in Hungary...wonder what he thinks of them now...

Funny, I may be Anglican myself, but I hated to see a once-staunch traditional (FSSP) Catholic, who used to drive me to the Indianapolis Latin Mass when I was home visiting my parents, go over to Geneva...

I wish I hadn't had that snit when I deleted my original account. I have no idea when I first registered.

Well, I've been a member only recently...but YAY! I don't always comment, but I do run over forums several times a week.

Oh, are there other active female members around here?

A bit belated, but this forum turned 8 years old on May 24th, 2014. Let's all whoop and holler!
