Congratulations Bernie! I think LETTERS FROM STAN is one of the best sites on any subject to be found on the web. Unique and endlessly fascinating. And it gets better all the time.

I am very proud that "Letters From Stan" has won "Website of the Year." Even moreso because I don't consider it my website. Rather, I like to think of it as Stan's website. And yours. Because without his letters and your support and encouragement it wouldn't be half as rewarding to visit.

Thank you.

Bernie

I can only echo everyone elses sentiments, the website you have provided us with gives us a vast and unique insight into the thoughts and mind of a true genius. Many thanks Bernie, a worthy winner, it is also fititng that the other contenders make up other important sites of Laurel and Hardy interest.

what i like most about lettersfromstan.com is the fact that we learn stuff from Stan himself that is not written in books. It's the encyclopedia Stan never wrote.

Letters from Stan is certainly a worthy winner. Well done, Bernie and all concerned. The site has a wealth of material and the way it is presented is inspiring.

My thanks go to all those who voted for Bowler Dessert Online. The support the site receives is amazing and very satisfying.

There are many, many sites, based throughout the world and we can be grateful to all the many people who devote so much time and energy into feeding Laurel and Hardy buffs with endless information.

And let us not forget the Forum when we hand out praises. It truly is second to none.

Well done Bernie. I've got to agree with all the others. You have found an ingenius way of using the Internet to bring Stan's thoughts and words to those around the world who admire him greatly.

May Letters From Stan go from strength to strength.
