I wish there was a "like" button to push today. Your list of things to check out is particularly good and I've shared the banjo item, as my best boyfriend ever (BBFE) played the banjo. I stick up for banjos all the time because of him, but now I have an even better reason. I FB'd the article to another banjoist and just wanted to say thank you for all your work at putting up interesting stuff. I loved the jumping spider meme!

Thanks, Kit! With little feedback and declining views, I often wonder if keeping this blog is worth the effort. Than I get a message like yours, and everything is all better.

I'm sure it is a lot of work doing what you do and I wouldn't blame you for letting it go, but I would miss it. I check it every day, usually more than once, because you always put up new stuff and I don't want to miss anything!

Please don't stop. I always enjoy your posts, and visit you every day--and have for many years.

I don't always comment. But I do read Miss Cellenia every day. Thanks. :-)

Lilylou said...

See, all the new stuff you've put up since I visited earlier!

Another grateful reader here. My family passed around a Neatorama link on Facebook last week, which made me think of you. Keep the fun coming!
