    Thanks to our loyal readers, who make it so special.

    It’s been an honor to be a small part of it for the last few years.

    “Here’s to those who wish us well…”

    8 years?! Starting with 0-10 responses in the first month on threads to over 70 comments on ONE thread!

    You guys must feel like proud parents! Congrats!

    “Here’s to those who wish us well…”

    …And to those who don’t, and make the threads so interesting, so often ;-).

    What Michael said…

    I am VERY honored to have a microscopic part with the post you guys approved, and, that still means the world to me – thanks to you all – again!

    Also, for anyone who ever gives me a thumbs up, and allows me to feel I have something intelligent to say – even though I have yet to be succinct ;-). Y’all are too cool!

    On that fateful day… a new day came.

    A nonsensical anniversary salute:

    “Jabberblogging”

    ‘Twas blogging, and the slithy trolls
    Did gripe and grumble on the page;
    All wimpy were the centrist doves,
    And the Hooligans they raged.

    “Beware the Jabberblog, my son!
    The snark that bites, the clauses that catch!
    Beware the Peck-Peck bird, and shun
    The frumious Banter-Cates!”

    He took his verbal sword in hand:
    Long time the max-meme foe he sought—
    So rested he on page Scrutiny,
    And commented awhile in thought.

    And as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberblog, with threads of flame,
    Came whiffling through the Intrey nets,
    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! and I’ll show you!
    The verbal blade went snicker-snap!
    He left the thread, scratched his head
    then went galumphing back.

    “And hast thou slain the Jabberblog?
    My beamish Scrutiny Hooligans!
    O Pinthred day! Callooh! Callay! Oops!”
    (He dribbled on his keyboard).

    ‘Twas blogging, and the slithy trolls
    Did gripe and grumble on the page;
    All wimpy were the centrist doves,
    And the Hooligans they raged.

    Sorry I’m late. But it can’t really be eight years, can it?
