And Then There Were Three

Today this blog turns three years old. And this is my post number 950. While I realize that the time I spend thinking about, writing and re-writing this blog could’ve been spent more productively, I don’t regret doing it at all. Although no one knocks on my door with lucrative (and non-lucrative) offers and screaming female groupies do not throw underwear at me when they see me, this blog gave me something better – a group of interesting people who I enjoy corresponding and meeting with in real life; a satisfaction that someone (more than one) reads this and finds time to comment; a place to share my thoughts, memories, stories and recipes; and, most importantly, it saves me from being bored and lonely.

And now, for the musical part of this post I am including a few of my favorite songs.

Call Me:

Thanks for reading all these years….

  • This reminds me. It’s about time for borscht. I must add sour cream to my shopping list!

  • And in the blink of an eye…

    Happy blog birthday.

  • Happy Blogiversary!

  • Congrats on your milestone, meesha.

  • Cheers from everyone at the Kansas City Public Library!

  • Happy three.. thank goodness you’re out of the terrible twos….. (Metaphor not criticism)

  • Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I think just knowing that somewhere in rural Missouri borscht is being cooked because of me makes this blog worth my while.

  • Steve

    Happy Birthday. May the blog enjoy many more.

  • I Travel for JOOLS

    Thanks for writing for these three years. I think I’ve been with you almost from the start. And, I would have enjoyed listening to some of the songs save the suffering buffering I go through with the connection I have. The last one looked really funny.

    • Thanks, this one is an old favorite, it played on my Dad’s reel-to-reel “Bryansk”
