Well, it’s fitting that this is the day we reopen PotterParties, because this was a favorite project of his, but: Today is our lovely B.K. Delong’s birthday!

Thanks so much everyone. Here I am in Dallas at a work event having spent most of my day on the plane. This really means a lot - and, yes, PotterParties.com was and is a big favorite of mine. I hope it will be used to capture the last of the Harry Potter Book launch events through photos, videos, personal podcasts and other such ideas. One Potter Day! ;) I'm also thrilled to see so many of my UMass Marching Band Alma Mater showing up in fandom. Quite the collide of two different worlds. Now for the cheeze - Without fans, TLC would have been nothing. I just brought the news and you brought yourselves and then some.Avatar Image says: Happy birthday, BK.

You deserve a wonderful year. Love, A. :)
