"One Post to rule them all, One Post to find them,"

"One Post to rule them all, One Post to find them,
One Post to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."

Thus spaketh Jack, Bishop of Bullfrog and traveler in cyberspace. I am not a hobbit, a dwarf nor an elf. I am not from Numenor. No will confuse me with a balrog or Gandalf. I am just a blogger.

It is Saturday night and I am going to try and hang up my spikes for the rest of the year. Instead of spending hours trying to prepare a complete end of the year post I am going to spend a little time listing some posts of mine (there are around 1,000) from this past year. They may not be my best, but they are those that caught my eye this final Saturday night of 2006.

ACK! More cool stuff to read rather than writing my manuscript!

;-)

It appears I became a regular reader in June, so I only have six months of posts to catch up on. For 2006. Heh heh...

Oh, I'm so punchy tonight. Must gets back to my writing.

Thanks for being so prolific, Jack, and well, yes, random. It's been a pleasure to hang 'round here the past six months and I look forward to more.

May 2007 bring you joy and satisfaction!

MBM,

Thanks. Happy Sylvester to you too.

Kasamba,

Thanks, you too.

CM,

Happy New Year. Soon these cold Valley mornings will be replaced with warmer spring mornings.

SG,

As I surfed through the first six months what I noticed was that I repeat myself. No need to check out the old stuff, it'll show up again.

Best wishes for 2007.
