Wow ! Been A Long Time...! Post 1107 !


It just dawned on me today that the old Blog is getting some age on it!

I started this little experiment with my first post on November 17TH of 2007! That's a long time ago for me! I have to admit that I haven't stayed with many things in my life like I have with this blog.

Actually, to be honest about it, I started the blog as a way to try and advertise some programs I was involved with on the net! Some where down the line, I found that I was meeting plenty of interesting people, finding out about some really intelligent life styles, and most of all I was learning! Learning a LOT, as it turned out!

So many things that I was interested in are being actually lived by folks out there! Folks more than willing to share information and helpful tips and first hand knowledge...all you have to do is ask!

It seems to me that the more I learn and pick up from these friends on the 'Net, the more I find out how much I don't know! Nothing wrong with admitting you need to learn more! The only thing that's wrong is in not taking advantage of the knowledge and experiences of other people to advance your own personal knowledge!

There are so many folks out there not only talking the talk, but walking the walk as well! Many of them have blogs, and many of those blogs are listed on the left of this page! May I suggest that you give them a read when you can, ask any questions you want, and take advantage of all of this real life experience being offered!

No one can pick it up totally on their own. By sharing the ideas and experiences of those that have been down the road...we can all become more productive, more helpful to ourselves and others, and more capable of dealing with whatever comes our way!

Learn as much as you can, from where ever you can, for as long as you can! Remember, knowledge is power...and it could save your life someday!

Now, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit! While we are here, can you teach me something new?

You'll be here for some time to come, I'm sure. Love to read what you have to say. You've taught us a thing or two here and there. Question.....how's the knitting coming along?

RG said...

Congrats my friend. I know how easy is would be to quit and walk away. Your blog is an inspiration to me as well. As a matter of fact, I read every single post you put out and consider you blog a must read. (Subscribed via Google Reader, Keep the coffee flowing.

Dizzy-Dick said...

Ditto on all of the above. I am probably one of late comers to your site, but I have been faithfully reading it every morning. Thank you for the effort and keen sense of humor. You are appreciated.

The day we stop learning is the day we become horizontal. The net just makes it easier to learn. Congrats on nearly four years of blogging. I'm just over a three-year-man myself.

Maybe after I'm gone, my blog will be around teaching still.

JoJo said...

Good Morning My Special One,
WOW! That is impressive. I love reading your blog and have learned so much from you. I love your warmth toward us all and I am certainly glad to have had that warmth touch me personally.
I am ashamed of how bad I have kept up my own blog, since returning home from my mountian hide away. Should be going out on the road soon and get back at it.
Keep up the great work my friend.

HermitJim said...

Hey China...
Some times you wonder just where the time gets off to! Some ways it doesn't seem that long ago, and others seems like it's been a long time!

Best thing to me is all the great folks I've met along the way!

I do appreciate the visit, buddy!


Hey Momlady...
Sadly, I haven't been keeping up with the knitting as much as I should lately! Need to get busy again!

Glad to have you along as a friendly face on this journey!

Many thanks for stopping by today!


Hey RG...
Glad to have you this morning! I love the fact that so many folks drop in and find something worth reading from time to time!

I'm certainly glad you started coming by and that you find the time to visit!

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Ben...
Amazing, isn't it? Time does seem to get away from us.

I didn't realize you had been blogging that long, buddy! Way to go!

Guess it gives us old farts something to do!

I sure appreciate you dropping in today!


Hey Dizzy...
Thanks for the kind words this morning!

Whatever the reason, I'm glad you started coming by and I appreciate each and every visit, I really do!

Nice to have you as a neighbor and a friend, buddy! Thanks for the visit today!


Hey AV...
Hard to believe we have stuck around as long as we have, isn't it?

I don't know if anyone learns anything from here, but it would be nice to think so!

Thank you so much for coming by today, my friend!


Hey Mayberry...
I'll drink to that! But then, I'll drink to a flat tire!

Gonna try and stick around as long as I can, buddy! I find it easier when my friends drop in and I thank you for that!


Hey Ken...
Strange how many folks came over for the first time due to the name! Just goes to show what you find is not always what you expect!

I have to admit, it can become addicting...both writing and reading the blogs of others!

Good way to spend an afternoon!

Hey, Thanks for coming over today, Ken! I appreciate it!


Hey JoJo...
My very special friend! It always makes me happy to see you drop in! I miss you when you stay gone a while!

Better get started writing again and bring us all up to date on your wondering around!

Good to see you this morning, girl!

smunkey said...

Hey Jim,
Congrats for another year with many to come, I look forward to reading your blog daily. I wish I had your discipline to update mine like you do.

HermitJim said...

Hey Smunkey...
I was wondering just where you got off to! Good to see you back!

I do appreciate the kind words today, my friend! Thanks for coming by!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Congrats HermitJim and hope you continue posting as so many of us really enjoy your honesty and pointing out things some of would never know. Sometimes, I don't always post on all the blogs I read daily, it's always nice to learn something new - from your blog and so many others.

Sure, there are many blog sites that are not worth a second glance, just like some of those online social networks, but your is definitely a "keeper."

Knowledge definitely is power and the more you know and learn, the better - for everyone!

HermitJim said...

Hey Beatrice...
I'm certainly glad you take the time to come by. It's always nice to have folks come by more than once!

I have to agree with you about the whole "social network" thing...as I really don't care for them myself!

Nice folks like yo are what make this whole process more enjoyable!

Thanks for the visit today!
