I Missed It!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 1:36 pm

Computer raspberry.jpgOn November 27th, without my having noticed, this blog became two years old.

In trying to think of something to say on this most inauspicious of occasions, I checked back to see what I said on the one-year anniversary of this undertaking. It turns out that everything I said then still applies, except that I am even more grateful for the number of times folks have stopped by here for a while (92,000+) and for the hours of wonderfully entertaining, and informative reading my fellow bloggers have shared with the world, including my small piece of it.

One thing that made this year special was the chance to actually meet some of you in person. Not surprisingly, what you read, is what you get in person. Accordingly, a special thanks to Eric, Rob, Velociman, Dax, Kelley, Key, Laughing Wolf, Aubrey, Zonker, Catfish, Denny, Geoff and Gordon, and Mammamontezz. Great people, all.

Finally, a very special thanks to Craig, my Montana pal, who keeps this place running and who always, always has time to lend a hand and the patience to deal with Jimbo, the cyber-dolt.

Again, thank you all so very much.


  1. Happy Blogiversary, Jim.

    You are definitely one of the Good Guys. Thanks for sharing yourself with us.

  3. Typical two-year old?

    Well, not really. After all, he still loves the bottle and occasionally still crawls around. I’d say he tends to regress a bit, no? Oh wait….his blog is two years old. Well, then…as Emily Litella would say,

  8. Since you’ll be entering your terrible two’s will we have to put up with the crying, whining and all-around general crankiness unless you get your bottle and a nap.

    Oh wait…uh, nevermind.

    Happy Blogiversary my friend!

  10. Happy Anniversary, stud. If my customers will ever quit rescheduling on me I’ll buy you that dinner.

  11. No, thank YOU. So glad to have made your cyber-acquaintance during your second year. I came relatively late to the blogging party, but yours was one of the very first I bookmarked. Keep up the good work (but hey, no pressure from me, really!).

  13. Monday Around The Sphere

    Eric has a good good message for corporations anywhere. Rand reports that the last chance this year for decent suborbital launch legislation is being held hostage by one perp. We are not amused at this, anymore than we were about…
