It's the end of civilization as we know it!
Thanks for the laugh y'all!
It's the end of civilization, period. From now on, it's walking on our knuckles and calling each other "Uggh!"
Will these 982 posts still be here, for us to revisit? There's so much erudition, research, knowledge, humor, and heart in these posts! The world would be a poorer place without them. It is your hard work, Janet, your curiosity and wide range of interests, that makes the Glean such a special place. I could not bear to think I would one day click on my favorite icon and see "404 not found"!Right now I feel like going through the entire 982 posts, one by one. Well, I'll leave Frank Sinatra to say, "I'll be seeing you" in the catalogs, and wherever you may be found.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKWNay0y2Bc
You are the sweetest person in the whole world! If anyone is the "ideal reader" it is you. Your wit and scope of literary knowledge is just staggering. I will so miss our dialogues and "internet connection." Let's definitely stay in touch. And the 982 posts will stay in the blogosphere; the DG just won't be updated any more.
Gioconda--Loved reading your witty, knowledgeable and engaging comments. It isn't simply the Daily Glean, but also the conversation that will be missed.
Shoulda had more cat videos! You'll be missed.
You are so right. And cute pics too. I had a million of em. Oh well. Thanks so much!
So sorry to see this bit of light in the darkness of the "interwebs" disappearing. I am looking forward to the new candles you'll be setting alight. Thanks for sharing the opportunity to post a few guest blogs. I enjoyed being part of your sparkling community.
Nooooo...I have not been a big commenter, but for sure a big enjoyer of all your posts and the commentary that followed. I will definitely keep an eye pealed for your next venture!
Happy Halloween and best wishes for many exciting adventures to come!
Glad to hear these posts will remain available! This collection of posts is surely a treasure that future internet users will be happy they stumbled upon :)
Sorry to hear about this. I just returned home from 50 days on the road, finishing up a three-part adventure that involved traveling some 31,000 miles through all 50 states, for which I took 8,300 photographs. (The traveling is finished, but the recounting of the stories is not.)The Glean has been one of the rare 'liberal arts' spots on the Internet, where a person never was sure what was coming next, but knew it almost always would be of interest. You may have only batted .982 instead of 1.000, but it was a job very well done. I will miss it a great deal.
Oh no, The Glean as we have received it is gone ! I can hardly bear it. Where to turn for witty commentary on things literary as well as all the other tidbits that kept us going. I have turned to The Glean in good times, and bad. I was never disappointed. Oh, say it ain't so !
I'm shocked to hear this and I will miss the posts, hope to hear more from you soon!
My simple-minded dog recently went on an unplanned adventure. Because the simple dog is so very simple, her adventure was alarming and horrible for everyone involved....http://hyperbole-andahalf.blogspot.com/2016/08/wild-animal-simple-dog-goes-for-joy-ride.html
