Happy Anniversary To Kitchen Connection!

Tomorrow, 11th May, Aussie-time, I will have been blogging for a year! That is a full twelve months (and there are, I must admit, a couple of posts written when I was "full"!) in case you don't know!

And.....drum roll, please....I've written 456 posts including this one within that period! Oh! Please! Please! Don't! Stop! Please! Thank you for the applause, which I humbly accept! May I keep the balloons and streamers?

My undying gratitude must go out to "Wino" my fellow conspirator in http://www.fauxnews.org/blog/

"Wino" is the culprit guilty of getting me started in blogging. He is the villain you have to blame for setting up my blog, not me! However, I do thank him for steering me in the right direction and I thank you, all my readers for your comments and participation.

I might be forced into opening a bottle of champagne tomorrow...damn! Is there to be no rest for the wicked? Twist my arm, and I'll follow you anywhere!

  1. Happy Blog Birthday Lee. If I had more petrol in the car and did'nt have kids to pick up from school... I'd drive the two hours... and celebrate with you.
    You really have reached a wonderful milestone.
    BUT.... I'd like a story next time please ;)

  18. Hello to a new blogyear Lee! And good morning. I left you a couple posts over at LST. I was scared to post them here due to your sensitivities on the scaley ones!

    On a new note we now have two adorable new kitties, a brother and sister, 10 weeks old, and they are hillarious when they are not sleeping. The little female has decided I am a daddy kit now and wants me to tickel and play. The little boy ain't too sure yet, but is getting bolder.

    I think I will have to enclose the back deck to keep out all of the wild animals here, and so they have a space not in our house. I haven't had young critters for around 20 years, so this is really taking me back. It's nice.

  19. lee,

    Extend my thanks to wino for getting you started, otherwise I'd not have made your delightful acquaintance.
    The only champagne I like is Asti Spumante.
    We're away this wknd, to the B&B we did last Feb. 2 of our cilens will join us for a mother's Day celebration.
    Congrats my dear and here's to another year!!!

  20. I am glad that Wino got you started. To think that you would not be a part of my reading material and wonderful recipes to try if it weren't for him. So I thank him for getting you to start your blog. Now think if your anniversary for this blog was on May 27th USA time it would be on the same day as my birthday. :) Congrats and looking forward to the next 400 plus posts.

  21. Nicely done I'd say! I'm glad you started and that I found you.
    When last I was here I left a comment on chapter one below but it didn't take and I had to leave. As I recall a house painter was about to give you a ride to the city. I looked at your pic and thought "Yeah Right" keep your eye on him girl.
    I'll go read chapter 2 now. Congrats.

  26. Thank you, gto...as you say "that's life"...not everything, unfortunately, in life goes the way one would like it to go...there are always hurdles, valleys and mountains to traverse and conquer along the way. Or at least try to conquer! ;)
