MY FIRST BIRTHDAY

I've just realised this is the first birthday of this pile of shite!  819 posts since this time last year when I tentatively took my first steps to put my random opinions down in print.  I've probably spent about 1500 hours doing it in that time.  I don't think most people who don't run blogs realise how much time it takes, researching and finding stories, getting and doctoring photos, answering comments etc.


Have I enjoyed it?  Of course, if I didn't I wouldn't do it.  I've met many people on here who I would now consider friends even although I've never met them face to face.  Here's to ANOTHER YEAR!

Many happy returns DL

Without doubt, yours is my favourite blog to read and if I ever found myself in Scotlandshire, I would certainly wish to you buy you a wee dram.

Keep up the good work and don’t sell your soul to the devil like Guido did.

Happy Birthday DL... your blog is a great read and I always drop by at lunchtimes to see what your latest story is. I have spread the word and a work colleague and a Scottish mate of mine always take a look. Here's to the next year of blogging!

THANKS EVERYBODY! I will endevour to write some stuff in the next year which is slightly off the cuff, but I may have to get more party political in the next few weeks. Please keep up the commenting. As any blogger knows that is the lifeblood of a blog. Cheers again.
