masc chair and bottleTHANK YOU once again to all of you readers for making Balladeer’s Blog so enjoyable to write. As I always say the weird and controversial items I churn out here mean that readers have to be very secure in their own beliefs not to just take offense and leave.

    Congratulations on blogging for 9 years.

    I only found your blog recently and it’s the only thing I read on the internet.

    It’s inspirational that you’ve kept blogging consistently, with spirit, this long, through times when everything changed so much so quickly.
