Stepping Down From Mytoos

Stepping Down From Mytoos - 06/17/08 09:13 PM

It is with some sadness that I have decided to step down from Mytoos. It's been 11 years of frustration AND satisfaction, from founding Mytoos as a personal webspace to taking it Dot-Com and finally watching it climb to number 1 in the world. Like a baby, I watched Mytoos grow into what it is today, and it's time to let others take over the heavy-lifting, as they have anyway for a while now.

I have full confidence that Mytoos is in the best of hands, and will continue the journey of educating people and saving cockatoos. I know that no punches will be pulled just to "play nice". Mytoos will continue to tell you the truth even if you may not want to hear it. Mytoos will continue to be Ad-free, because we don't believe that you can be objective if you're taking money from a sponsor. If Mytoos changes any at all, I'm sure it will be for the better.

I have fought, and cried over the plight of these birds and the people I had to battle along the way. I have spent many sleepless nights worrying about individual birds, and in many cases the sorry owners of these parrots. I finally couldnt take anymore and had to step back. I had said everything there was to say, and decided that others who were interested could carry-on where I left off. Now it's time to let "my child" go, and start relaxing more.

I will always be in the background, like a grandfather who's advice may be needed now and then. But Mytoos will be "under new management" from here on out. The official announcement will come later as to the particulars, but for now I wish everyone the best of luck with their birds, and hope you will spread the word of Mytoos ... and what we continue to stand for.

Take care. smile

Please permit me to say, "Thank You!" If I had not found MYTOOS I don't know how my Brandy and I would have fared. Your brainchild has helped us more than I can say. The whole family of MYTOOS members are closer to me then most of my blood family. I could ramble on but I will wish you a period of refreshment that you are so deserving of. Take care.

Take care Jerry! Thank you so much for the blood sweat and tears you've put into this place. You have changed the life of my bird, and on to changing others. This legacy will continue if I have anything to say about it.

Thank you Jerry. I know for a fact that Charley & Sydnee would not be the happy & healthy birds they are today if not for this site and the wonderful people who lead the rest of us in our journey with these magnificent creatures we chose to live with. I cannot even fathom what would have happened if I had not stumbled on Mytoos. It is too sad to think about because I think I may have given up on my wonderful Moluccans.

Jerry it's not going to be the same without you. Over the past three and a half years since joining Mytoos, I've learned so much thanks to you and the members here. And like Jan said we'll be here and always look forward to your words of wisdom.
Thank you for Mytoos and your support. Nancy
