Happy Blogiversary to Me!

Can you believe I've been blogging for 3 years? In internet years that's like 152 years, right?

Coming up with posts is not always easy, but everything is so wonderfully worth it when I get those emails from relatives that have discovered me through a blog post - it actually happened twice within the past few months!! To me, happiness comes from sharing the research I've done and to know that it actually helped someone fill in a few holes? Well, that's pure bliss! :-)

In the meantime though, I'll do what lots of other people do on their blogiversaries, I'll share some, well, unusual search terms that have brought people to my blog!

1. "the left side of my brain hurts after a night of drinking"

Huh. I'm...sorry to hear that?

2. "stuffed cabbage and manwich"

How is it possible someone would specifically combine 2 foods I greatly dislike into one search phrase? The only thing worse would have been "stuffed cabbage, manwich and lima beans". Blech!

3. "some informetion about drowing tool bar"

I think that maybe you should search for a spellchecker first.

4. "inbred island"

I really can't take the blame for this one. I know I post a lot of weird phrases and topics, but I am sure I've never discussed this.

5. "I hate physics"

If only you were with me during the day when I tease one of my co-workers who just so happens to have a degree in physics - I like to tell him that "I don't believe in physics" because it makes so sense to me. :-) What are the chances I'd get a search term like this?

6. "caught wearing diapers by my mother"

Well, I'm sorry for you. And I'm also sorry for your mother.

7. "hunky steak"

Wow!! This is the name of a recipe that my grandmother made and taught to her kids so now I know it - you take stew meat and dump ketchup on it and let it simmer in the pan forever - cheap and delicious, we'd serve it with egg noodles. Ok, ok, here I am saying that reduced ketcup is good on meat when I turn my nose up at Manwich, but hey, it's my blog, I can say what I want. Anyway, I always figured it was a recipe left over from the depression and that it was made up by my grandmother. Maybe there are others out there? Maybe it was a recipe on a bottle of ketchup at one time. I'll have to investigate!

Anyway, thanks to all of my readers that stop by, I appreciate all of you and your comments!!

  5. Happy Blogiversary! I couldn't tell you when I started blogging. I remember 2006, but that's it.

  6. I feel a song coming on . . .
