Weekend Wanderings – April 3, 2010

Since this is a weekend for resurrections, I thought I would keep the theme by bringing back to life “Weekend Wanderings”…thoughts, observations, adventures, that have little or nothing to do with news and politics, and that instead focus on the people and places that occupy my rare moments of down time.

Today’s “Wandering” involved fellow bloggers Kathy Frederick who writes the very funny and sardonic “The Junk Drawer”, and Bernie O’Hare who writes one of the best political blogs in the state, “Lehigh Valley Ramblings”. Both Kathy and Bernie have tremendous followings and are very widely read. Blogger Lunch

Blogging is a strange avocation, although for some there’s no “a”…it’s a vocation for which they get paid, but those who make money at blogging are few and far between. Most of us do it because we love to write and enjoy sharing information or stirring the pot, or both. Bernie and I were both impressed when Kathy mentioned that she is now listed on Kindle’s blog list and people are paying to subscribe.

The three of us had so much fun sitting at Pistachio enjoying a gorgeous spring day that we’ve agreed to do it again next month. Bernie wants us to try Thai food at one of his favorite places in Bethlehem. Kathy was less than enthusiastic about that suggestion, but we convinced her to try it if for no other reason than the great material the experience may give her for a blog post. I’m hearing music from “The King and I”.

Wishing everyone all the blessings of Easter and Passover.
