Dr. Gannon and the PG stuff members managing and supporting the Forum,

Thank you very much for giving me this great honor. I am very happy to be included in the list of the winners together with other outstanding artists. I am encouraged and motivated a lot to continue my music creation work and share its outcome with the forum members including the PG stuffs. They are all excellent artists as well as appreciative listeners.

BIAB is my best partner, tutor, helper as well as Shelpa in my music creation journey. It took me to the foot of the high mountain and helped me try climbing up for the summit. Without it, I could just look it up from far away. I want to empress my gratitude to all those who are/were invloved in the development of this incredible application software.

Sure you got that right, bossman blush ???

All right. You got my attention.

Pardon my expression of surprise, but the only thing I ever "won" in my life was a pet turtle when I was ten years old...and then, it died frown , and I don't know why...

It's very nice of you. Thank you.

I find it hard to come up with the words to adequately express my gratitude to Dr. Gannon and the staff of PG Music for their generosity. This past year was a tough one for me, so finding out about this award really made my day! I am humbled by everyone's kindness here. This forum is one of the friendliest groups of people in the world. I'm sure most of you would agree that this group is like an extended family to one another. I appreciate all the kindness that flows like a river through this place! Not to mention all the talent that is at work around here (and it just keeps getting better and better)!

Blessings to all of you,

Hi guys, I've been away from this forum (and actually from many other things as well) for a while - you know, life happens sometimes smile
Now I'm back, and it's just in time to see this.
Just ... wow.
I'm really honored to be in this list.
And even more, I am just blown away by the generosity of this company and Mr. Gannon.
I'm gonna follow his example, and I'm gonna use this prize to make a friend of mine really happy with a gift such as BIAB.
Thank you again Peter Gannon and PG Music!!!
