9 years ago today I put up my first post on this blog.

I didn’t think then that I’d manage to keep the blog going this long.

I’d like to take this chance to thank all my readers out there. It has been great making friends and corresponding with you all.

Here is to the next 9 years. I’ll have to think of something special to do for my 10th anniversary though.

Take care out there everyone- we are living in strange times.

    Congrats Pete! Up to the 10th one!


  6. Congrats! I think I just passed 6 – but I know for most of those 6 I;ve been fortunate enough to be able to enjoy your posts.

    BTW, I’ve been meaning to ask you Pete – what is the painting you use as an icon for your blog? Is there meaning behind it?

    Again, congrats and I hope your 1oth year finds you in better health.

      Thanks Mark.

      The painting is by Wyndham Lewis (Mr. Wyndham Lewis as a Tyro). He is an artist I’ve long had an interest in. He started an avant gardemovement pre WW1, was a war artist in both World Wars as well as being a modernist novelist and political essayist. He wasa complicated and difficult man- he seemed to enjoy being an individualist and contrarian. Certainly worth reading up on yourself. Hope that helps somewhat.
