It's been an awesome journey over the past ten years - let's celebrate and thank God for His amazing presence and ministry on the Worldwide Web!

A 15-Year Milestone: December 26, 1995 to December 26, 2010

Who Is Peggie? . . . ."A Little Girl and Her Lunch" . . . .The Amazing Story behind Peggie's Place!

It's party time AGAIN at Peggie's Place--seems like we're always havin' a party, but this one is special! Anytime this many people do something together, it IS special--and so are YOU--you're a part of the over-16 million hits at Peggie's Place during the last 15 years. Thanks for coming, from YOUR place in the world, wherever that may be.

Have a virtual chocolate. . . . . . It's Party Time!

Pull up a chair and please join in the fun at the longest party table in the world; it's celebration time! (Note: We've got you CLONED--for the 16-plus million "hits" translate not into people but into "people and images" - every time someone hits a page at Peggie's Place, it's a clone on the counter--so bring your multiple personalities to the table too--it's the wild, wacky WWW!)

Note: The Christian Counter keeps a running total of "hits" (which include images and people "hitting" any page or pages), erroneously identified by me as "page views" for theentire site.
--It jogs around the world and around the clock--to findYOU!

Guests of Honor

All eligible for a prize: A Virtual Vacation around the World!

SUPREME GUEST OF HONOR: Jesus Christ, Lord of my life and home, without whose blessing this effort would be in vain (Psalm 127:1, KJV: "Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it...") God has built "Peggie's Place," and enlarged it beyond my wildest dreams--and to His honor and glory, I dedicate this joyful celebration!

FAMILY GUESTS OF HONOR: Joe, my dear husband, recently retired Evangel University professor, who puts up with my obsessive renditions of "As the World (Wide Web) Turns," and says my Web work keeps me out of the shops and saves him money! Then there's the Bohanon Brain Center Personnel: Dr. Joey, (Scroll past "First Amendment Activites"), 29, (Ph.D. in math, now employed as a mathematician by the Federal government of the United States), residing in the DC area, who has it all figured out--that kids know way more than their parents--don't believe it - grin; and Jason, 26, adjunct professor at Central Bible College and high school teacher at Grace Classical Academy, Springfield, MO. Both are sorta proud of their cyber-Mom's accomplishments--even if she IS "old"!!

Meet our family - Peggie, Joe, Joey and Jason!


A circle of wonderful personal friends who bring me smiles on high days, hugs on low days, and Christian love and friendship the year 'round! Thanks, guys and gals - you know who you are--and you're the greatest!

A vast number of Webbers around the world who visit Peggie's Place faithfully for the fun 'n faith found here! Many of you have written once, twice, several times; your kind letters have blessed me. I'm glad you feel at home here day AND night--that's my goal!

And, whoever YOU are, you are a personal guest of honor at my table too. So come on in, kick off your shoes, make yourself at home, and--let's party!
