Happy Anniversary To Me!

I am not married, so I have missed out on a lot of anniversary celebrations -- but today I am celebrating 5 years of blogging, a relationship with all of you that has brought me a lot of pleasure.    The truth is, of course, that in some respects, I blog mostly for myself.    It is one of my methods of journaling, a way of sorting out my thoughts.    I keep other journal entries, but  those I destroy every so often, so that no one needs to see my negative thoughts or angry outbursts.   But you, my readers, help keep me civil, and I value your comments and insights.

I used a random number generator ( to choose my winner and it picked Karen ShamalamaMama!  Congratulations, Karen.   Your package will be in the mail as soon as we make contact and I get your address.

Thank you all.    I wish all of us an increase of peace, joy and wisdom as the next five years unfold.

Congrats on a wonderful milestone! You've been blogging longer than just about anyone I know. And congrats to Karen. Is that Snowbird's daughter? Her name sounds familiar to me.
