Thank you.

Although this blog began January 1, 2005, I was writing to myself for the first six months, as I had no idea about how to visit other blogs, leave comments, or get traffic. Duh on me - LOL So I would like to thank everyone who eventually came to visit, and especially those of you kind enough to leave comments. (These are in random order, not "most favored" or "most comments" or "most likely to get me noticed" LOL) Non-bloggers Kel = friend without a blog Robbie = friend without a blog Steph= friend without a blog MA = friend without a blog Sandy= EverAfter Weddings (not a blog - she does weddings - LOL)

-------------------------------------- I got kind of loopy going through all of the comments trying to catch everyone’s name and link - Hope I didn’t miss anyone! -------------------------------------- I recently took at shot at Blog Explosion’s "Rent My Blog," and would like to thank my sponsors: Ribbiticus at Pond Perspective Kel at Mama? MAMA COME HERE! Amy at Amy’s Musings ------------------------------------- The picture of Father Time in my banner courtesy of Novareinna - visit for fun facts about New Years! ------------------------------------- The people down in town who set up an inflatable snow globe with a snowman inside. It was placed on uneven ground, and the blower that is supposed to circulate the "snow" inside, spews the little bits out right beside the snowman’s head. It gives the snowman the appearance of barfing, and we laugh hysterically every time we drove by! LOL! ------------------------------------ Blogger for adding word verification. Sometimes it’s a pain, but it stopped most of the spammers (hisses vehemently at all things spam - LOL) Plus sometimes I get a real chuckle out of the "almost-a-word" combinations, which oddly often fit the nature of the post. I left a comment at a post regarding the commercialization of Christmas, and the word verification was, "bahmbg" LOL! ----------------------------------- I would like to thank everyone who has linked to me, or recommended my blog, or mentioned me anywhere, anytime, ever. LOL -----------------------------------
Best Wishes to EVERYONE for a glorious New Year!

Hi! That's a pretty neat thing to do :) I'm not sure how many times I might have commented, but I have been reading you in my Bloglines since early August 2005!

So, Thanks for your well wishes and you have yourself a great and Happy New Year celebration too .. (plus all the best in 2006 and that other humbug we often say) or perhaps let's say .. "May your December 31, 2006 list be ten times longer!"

Take care // HART

Happy New Year, Marti -- may your 2006 be twice as good as 2005 was.

Sorry to appear to have forgotten you - I do read everday, faithfully, via Bloglines. Just haven't commented lately...

And so it goes.

Loved the bit about the barfing snowglob snowman! lol That is the kind of stuff my kids and I get a kick out of! Like during the day when everyone has the blowers turned off their inflatable lawn Holiday characters and the characters are laying in puddles all over the lawn like they've been murdered? It must have been a case of Christmas-cide.

You are a great person, Marti, who also happens to be a wonderful writer! Don't let anyone cramp your style!

Kudos on a great idea! More kudos on actually pulling it off! That took a lot of time and work looking them all up, never mind typing them all out and working back and forth from compose to edit and back.
... I did a similar thing for a "Christmas card" to all those on my blog roll. I thought that was a lot of work for 40+ links! It paled to your endeavor.
...Happy New Year to you and yours.

Happy New Year Marti... Its a time consuming process to list out the persons who have commented in your blog. You have done it well :-)

I'm honored to be included in such good company. We share a lot of the same reads, which I think is how bloggers find each other. We are drawn to the same types of people.

I'm equally as glad to have found your site. May the coming year be a better one for all of us. :)

I don't like word verification but understand that it's a must-have for some of you. I'm glad Squarespace has so far stayed one step ahead of the spammers and doesn't force us to make our readers jumpt through hoops to comment.

PS: My word verification on this post was oykulrb ;)

I am moved to tears (again - duh LOL) by so many responses.

I thank you all and hope to see you again.

Thanks for the nod! I've enjoyed reading your blog. Thanks for the comments you've left on mine. It must have taken you quite awhile to compile that list. Hope your 2006 is awesome!
