Weekend Wanderings – April 3, 2010
Since this is a weekend for resurrections, I thought I would keep the theme by bringing back to life â€œWeekend Wanderingsâ€â€¦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.
Todayâ€™s â€œWanderingâ€ involved fellow bloggers Kathy Frederick who writes the very funny and sardonic â€œThe Junk Drawerâ€, and Bernie Oâ€™Hare who writes one of the best political blogs in the state, â€œLehigh Valley Ramblingsâ€. Both Kathy and Bernie have tremendous followings and are very widely read.
Blogging is a strange avocation, although for some thereâ€™s no â€œaâ€â€¦itâ€™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 Kindleâ€™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 weâ€™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. Iâ€™m hearing music from â€œThe King and Iâ€.
Wishing everyone all the blessings of Easter and Passover.
