No, Michael Aubrecht, the number 500 in this post has nothing to do with Alex Rodriguez and his pursuit of 500 home runs. ๐Ÿ™‚

Actually, this is blog post number 500 for me. I started this blog on a whim in September 2005, and it’s very much taken on a life of its own over the course of those nearly two years. I’m genuinely surprised that it’s lasted this long and that I continue to find things to rant about without becoming too redundant. Along the way, I’ve made some wonderful new friends, re-connected with some old ones, and have had some excellent company as we’ve traveled this road we call life.

I can only say that I am humbled and blessed all at the same time to have such wonderful friends. I am likewise humbled and blessed that so many of you think enough of my rantings to give a few minutes of your busy schedules each day to stop by and see what I’m babbling about today. I intend to keep going, and I hope that you all will continue along for the rest of the adventure.

I don’t know where it will lead, but I know that it will be interesting and challenging and all the better for having you all along.

    …bummer! I thought that you had finally come over to the ‘dark side.’ BTW: We thank you too friend for your insights – and look forward to 500 more.

    PS. Go A-Rod! ๐Ÿ™‚

    But the question remains: will Bud Selig read post #756?
