Dearest readers,

Here’s a sampling of the love and good wishes that have poured in from all corners as the 10th anniversary of my column drew nigh. You all are sweet! But I must say I am still waiting for the chocolate.

10. Congrats! We’re taking time to think about a creative question. Global Green USA [Dearest Global Green: Thank you! And I’ll be waiting.]

9. Dear Umbra, you have given this Vermonter SO MUCH great advice over the years  — you are my favorite part of Grist! Love, Liz S., Waterbury, Vt. [Dearest Liz: And you are my favorite part of Waterbury! Except maybe the Ben & Jerry’s factory. Thank you for the love.]
