And so it comes to my first blog milestone my thousandth post!  I was trying to think about some way to commemorate it. Pithy statements, or moving tributes have thus fair failed me.  So, I have decided just to mark the moment with a sincere thank you to everyone who has read my blog.

I have had some lovely feedback, made great connections, and found out more information than I could ever have anticipated, and for that I am eternally grateful.  It continues to astound me the generosity of strangers who comment on my work.

And so the blogging will continue, and I hope that you continue to enjoy my eclectic collection of history, genealogy, science fiction and commentary.  Yippee!
