    Ok, Hubbers - unfortunately you all couldn't be here for the real champagne toast that we celebrated with last night here in San Francisco at the HubPages HQ, but that doesn't mean that you can't join in on the toast (even if it is digitally).

    So, what I would like to do is offer a toast to all of you radical Hubbers out there who have helped us get to this amazing milestone of becoming a Top 100 website in the US, so grab your glass of whatever you're drinking, raise it toward your computer screen and give us all a nice, HubPages toast!

    (also, if you would like say a brief something about HubPages, please feel free to do so before your toast. Oh, and post a pic of you toasting if you can, too! I made Frank pose in mine below.)

    This is to all of the Hubbers out there who have pounded away for hours at their keyboards, fueled only by caffeine and the need for a 90+ HubScore!

    ***CLINK!*** big_smile

    Despite the fact that Frank looks clearly unimpressed (is he waiting to reward us with a smile only if you guys make it into the Top 10?) I think it's a marvelous achievement!

      That's how Frank always looks....he's actually ecstatic!**

      **the truth is that I just woke him up from a nap to snap the pic, so I'm sure he wasn't too happy with me.

    I want to say thank you to everyone here. The employees of HubPages have worked hard on the site to get where it is today. But we know that many of you work just as hard writing hubs, answering questions, and helping each other out in the forums. We certainly couldn't have done this without you. So, cheers to everyone!

        A camel latte is is for people who can go for days, only drinking coffee infrequently.
