I’m nipping off next week, (back to sunny Stow – again) but while I’m away – on August 15th – this piece of ol’ puffery completes it’s first year of orbit in the blogosphere (I’m discounting, but not deleting the first three directionless posts) – so to celebrate breaking the one year barrier, I’ve made a pick ‘n’ mix buffet of tasty treats and groovy goodies gathered from all around my
hat.. err, blogroll.
So, a tip of the titfter and a ‘thank you for the music’ is due to all those on the ‘1YS’ tracklist for the tip top tunes, and to anyone who’s ever contributed or commented on this ol’ blog, as well as a ton of cyberchums for chit chat, chippings in, inspiration and ideas like …

And finally a special mention for all those silent peepers, prowlers and binge bloggers that arrive via random.com and spend around 12 hours necking down every page and piece without a whisper.
