happy blogiversary - addendum

tho we recently decried blogger for "losing" our archives, thus depriving us of access to our very first post for our traditional blogiversary* self-congratulations, the lovely batocchio (whose fifth blogiversary comes at the end of this month) suggested a couple of blogger tricks to find the offending prose, and voila! here 'tis!

ok kids, this is my first attempt at blogging. why blogging? because i can. it's a lot like mt. everest in that way. we are all climbing the peaks of cyberspace to get to the pinnacle (or is it pinochle? i prefer canasta).

the web is one huge library full of books that didn't have to go through an editor to get published. is that good or bad? in truth, it's neither (ok, i've seen some of these blogs, you're right, it is bad). but nonetheless, as the french say, pass the fries!

i gotta start off with thoughts about mr. bush's speech. didn't work for me. not me personally, but my stock portfolio. i spent most of this morning selling at least half of my holdings. one sep-ira which i had started in 1993, and had doubled in value by 2000, had fallen all the back to original value plus $50 as of end of trading today.

i hate to tell you kids this, but we're in the middle of another great depression. that's ok, though, i'm old enough that my parents grew up during the first one, so i know some good techniques for saving money.
there are many people to thank, too many to actually thank them, so instead we'll link to a previous year's blogiversary post, where we thanked everybody in blogtopia**.

thanks to you, our readers, for sticking with us, and with any luck, maybe we'll have good news to blog about in the coming years.

* yes, talkleft coined that phrase!
** yes, we coined that phrase!
