It seems to me like it's been around forever, but today is actually the seventh anniversary of this blog.
For those of us who follow these things, this is also the anniversary of what turned out to be the most important event in my life, the night Barry and I met, eighteen years ago.
And, making the day even more perfect, . . . it's also Paddy Johnson's birthday!
I just checked on what I had written one year ago. Today I may be more upbeat about the world outside the circle of our friends, but only a bit.
