Second Bloggy Anniversary!!!

Another interesting year...

Well it is another year passing--two years ago today this little modest blog was started just for fun and games. A few on line musings about life, the news and whatever else attracted my attention. If along the way a few people read it, well that was cool too.

The MAST merger took it in a direction that was not anticipated, but that was OK. It continues to be a topic of great interest to me and is certainly not done yet!

The blog began to get noticed here and there in the larger world. Now that is OK, but not a goal. We are not here to break news (although we might due to just being there when something newsworthy happens) but just to offer nice fresh opinion. I am, to borrow from John Mellencamp, "still hayseed enough to go, 'Hey wow, they just mentioned me here or there.'" Sticking to my roots means I don't care if I go a little while without being linked some place or another. It is about me in many ways--what interests me or makes me go "Wow!" or "That ain't right." or "How cool is this?"

So on to year three, more twists and turns to come. To everyone along for the ride, thanks for reading and I hope you continue to come along.

Oh, and thanks to all who friended the page on Facebook. I think 25 is the threshold for the short url, but I am not sure!

Happy Anniversary.
I do not usually comment on blogs but yours is worth it. As a resident in the Red Bridge area who also grew up there I truly admire your perspective and your ability to say what needs to be said. Looking forward to more years of your blog.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
