Big deal.

Big Deal

There’s nothing more to say, is there?

…except, “Thank You, Alfred!”  

Well, I can say a little more.  To celebrate this milestone, I have listed below fifteen posts that are favorites of mine.  They are not the most visited or most commented:  just the ones that are favorites of mine for one reason or another.  I have listed them in oldest-first order:

    Congrats!! Wow, 500!! I wrote not even 200. I will read what you like best only if you promise you’ll reply to possible comments from me even if they are old posts. People usually don’t do this, weird.

  2. Man of Roma says:

    I wanted to visit more here recently, but was overwhelmed by the reaction to my controversial, first, and well accepted, later, 2 sex so to say posts of mine.

    Okay, you asked for it!

    Thanks, Troutsky, for your very kind words.

    I find this blog is one of the most interesting and smart around, and you have your special and personal way on so many things. You teach things to readers.

    It was created by Professor Phillip Cary and has been described not without some brilliance by Andreas Kluth, from The Hannibal Blog, *here* and *here*. It might interest you.

    I feel the need of coming to terms with both legs. AND, if I get religious again, I will SUE you, ça va sans dire.
