Feeling My Age




Today this blog is one year old. Surely more than that I hear you say? But no, I started with this "project" on Monday 26th November 2007, with this post about the sparkler. Before the post you are reading now, there have been 290 others. Hopefully, some of them at least, worthwhile.

A lot of subject matter has been covered too since then and a lot of comments have been made. Thanks for them. Comments really do make it worthwhile, including and probably even particularly, those that don't agree with what has been written. Debate is good.

Blogging though is a personal thing. It is looking out at the beer world through ones own eyes. It isn't a consensual thing really, but a lot of opinions that some may share and some may not. We all do it differently and it is good to see new British Beer Blogs starting up and established ones thriving and providing interest. The common bond is that beer and beer drinking fascinates us all and makes the world seem a cheerier place.

Anyway, that's it - the occasion is duly marked and now I have to respond to another blogger's daft opinions. Please continue to do the same with mine!

"now I have to respond to another blogger's daft opinions"

Without even checking I knew which nutter you meant...

A very Happy Birthday. I do hope you are going to celebrate with a pint. I’ll have one later as well and raise it to Tandleman.

Comment IS good. You know then that people are reading.

Funny, I've not checked yet, but I'm guessing I know the bloggers daft opinions as well.......of course I don't think he's as daft as you think, and he's not a nutter, honest.

Happy blogday, Tanders. Here's to many more.

Tandleman said...

All - I used the daft opinions bit as a lead in to saying mine are too. That's all. On this occasion it was a ploy - no more than that.

And yes Tyson. The sparkler debate is successfully concluded. I think all opposition is now extinguished!

Or is it?

Cheers and may there be many more years of Tandleman's Beer Blog!

As it's nearly pantomime season can I say "Oh no it isn't!!"

Anyway, what's wrong with being daft - I've made it my life work....

Talismann, although I come across as a holy roller with knowledge on how to save your soul and the brewing arts, I generally bring peace, love, and togetherness to the beer community. Cheers to many more years of your zany, uncontrolled antics!
