Happy Birthday Dave!!!

Camels With Hammers‘s webmaster extraordinaire and occasional contributor, Dave Smith, turns 32 today.  My previous forays into blogging were so fundamentally inhibited by my programming illiteracy that I can honestly say that this blog, in so many of its most successful features would simply not be possible without Dave’s volunteered efforts.  He has really made it possible for me to get exactly the designs, layouts, and features for the site that I wanted in order to give the place a distinctive look and feel and to make it user-friendly in the ways that I personally find crucial in the blogs I visit.  He is also as easy-going , helpful, and undemanding a guy to work with and be friends with as anyone could hope for.  So, be sure to wish Dave a happy birthday in return for his efforts to make your experiences with Camels With Hammers consistently happy!

Your Birthday Wishes?

    Thanks so much, Dan! I’ve had a blast working on Camels With Hammers, and it’s a great feeling to be part of building a site with such potential to reach and affect so many people; potential which has already been met to a greater extent than I had expected at just four months into the project. And more than that, thank you for your friendship over this past year. I’ve really enjoyed catching up after so long! Here’s to another great year :)

      I’ll toast to that!
