Today is a milestone for the blog for a couple of reasons. First, the proprietor is celebrating (if that’s the correct word) his 48th birthday today. There was a time, seemingly not all that long ago, that the thought of being 48 years old was the same as being as old as the hills but only slightly younger than the dirt. Fortunately, I don’t feel quite that old, but I do have my days…..

Second, and much more important than the 19th anniversary of my 29th birthday, is that this marks the 900th post on this blog. When I started this blog on a whim in September 2005, I never in a million years figured I would still be at this 900 posts later. This blog has become an important part of my daily routine, and I greatly value the interactions with those of you who give your valuable time to indulge what I have to say here. I’ve made new friends, re-connected with old friends, and have been rewarded immensely by doing what I do here.

Thank you to each and every one of you who give your time to indulge my rantings, and I hope you will continue to do so. I deeply appreciate the fact that you do so.

    I’ve just recently stumbled across your blog and now I make a point to check it everyday. I find your “rantings” to be very honest and insightful. Keep blogging (Ranting) away.

    Happy Birthday today! But most important, congratulations on your 900th post. I’m about ready to hit 100 posts on ThisMightyScourge.com, and I can appreciate the dedication, and time it has taken for your to reach such a milestone.

    Through your work, and the efforts of a lot of other folks you know, a new civil war student has been found.

    I thank you all.
