April 4, 2006 -- April 4, 2007

Notes on a first anniversary.

As blogs go, this one seems to be fairly successful. I’ve managed to post nonstop, every day, except during my cruise vacations. (For my online daily cruise diary, I’ll post the URL later.) Blog readership tends to vary between one and ten people, while “Things At King’s” seems to have a much higher audience, one spread over the U.S. and Canada, not to mention the people at King’s.

I’ve chatted about whatever topic comes to mind when I bring up the blog page. Then, 5.2” later (on the original Word document), I’m done. Sometimes I find something interesting in a local obituary that I want to note; everybody really does have a story.

If anyone had told me I would still be writing an original essay a year later, I’d probably not believe them. Will I find enough topics to be noting another anniversary on April 4, 2008? Probably; there are a lot of thoughts out in the universe and someone has to catch them for the enjoyment of all.

Everybody has a story.
Chet Grelecki, former local resident, passed away last month. He performed research and development of liquid rocket propellants and engines. His pioneering chemistry studies laid the foundation for much of the aerospace age. The first moon landing by Surveyor used Chet’s patented fuel blend that brought the rockets to the moon.

Congrats Fr. Tom. I love your blog and have made it my homepage. I read it every day and because I know you I can hear your voice as I read, which brings a smile to my face and warmth to my heart. You inspire me. Thank you.

Let's not forget there were a few days you posted TWO blogs!

Congratulations on a job well done, my friend.
I'm looking forward to another year of your unique take on things---at King's and elsewhere. :)

Congrats mon frère! Keep on as there are readers who are out there, but never reply.

Yes, Ruth is right!

OT. Being as how some readers are cruising people, aboard the Greek ship which ran aground, were 60 Canadian students, from out west, Edmonton I believe and I think also from Québec.
