Into the valley of death rode the four hundred

I know, I know, in Tennyson’s “The Charge of the Light Brigade” it says six hundred, not four hundred, but Lord Alfred was referring to British troops at the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War in 1854. I was not. I was referring to my posts.

I began blogging on September 28, 2007 -- 653 days ago, to be exact -- and I just happened to notice that this is my 400th post. Maybe not a major milestone, but a small accomplishment nonetheless that shouldn’t pass unnoticed. My handy-dandy calculator has informed me that my rate of blogging, if there is such a thing, works out to be an average of 0.61 posts per day (400/653) or 1.63 days between posts (653/400).

When I began, I thought I might run out of things to say. Some of you think I did a long time ago.

My new motto, at least for today, is “Keep on keepin’ on”....
