Alice's Restaurant - Original 1967 Recording

On November 22, 2006, I wrote my very first blog post. It is quite unbelievable to me that 14 years have gone by.To celebrate I am going to offer you a song for the season. It takes a few minutes to listen but is oh, so worth it!

  5. Not very cool to sing a song about dumping garbage these days. I well remember hearing this for the first time when I was a teenager.

    1. Yup, that's right!
      I was 19. I'm about six months younger than Arlo.

  6. Happy Blogoversary, dear Nan! (I know I'm late - it is already the 23rd today.)
    You know how much I enjoy your blog. There is always so much food for thought, reading recommendations, recipes, your beautiful family and the wonderful place you call home.

    1. There are a couple local stations which play it on or near Thanksgiving every year.
      And thank you!

  9. I can't believe it's been 14 years since you started this blog, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Think you and Les began about the same time. And it's been over 20 years since we 'met' online. Wow. Are we old yet? LOL

  10. Wow...fourteen years. That makes your blog one of the longest ones I visit on a regular basis. I think one of them is starting its seventeenth year, but several others are in the 12-14-year range. That makes you kind of a book blogging pioneer, I suspect. The genre has exploded in the last ten years, but due to burn-out, or even worse things, most of the ones from just a few years earlier than that are long gone.

    Congratulations!

    1. I sure did a lot of book blogging for many years but then just couldn't keep it up. I keep thinking I'll get back to it, but it seems just an occasional post is what I'm doing these days.
      I never was "just" a blogger about books, and I actually wrote about this on the first blog anniversary.

  11. I can't remember exactly when I "found" you, but I've appreciated your blog for a long time now. I never tire of reading about your daily life and thoroughly enjoy your headers. BTW, did you create this great wreath?

    1. Oh, thank you!
      And not me! Not a creative bone in my body in terms of things like that! It is the woman from whom we sometimes get the CSA flowers in the summer.

  12. I was going to congratulate you on a lovely wreath until I saw your last comment. It is lovely though.
    Congratulations on 14 years in blogging. I'm at 12 years.
