That is the number of this post. As of this post I have typed 500 unique posts into this blog. It has taken me over 3-1/2 years to do it, but then I never planned on getting to this level in the first place.

I am now going to share some of my favourite posts. (click to read them and then use the “back” button to continue with this post)

We will start with the first one I wrote, back on January 12, 2006. It is about plastic packaging that is almost impossible for an adult to remove.

Next up is some advice from Grandpa Richard about playing ball; or is it?

No blog is complete, nor is life, without some humour. In this case it is about the fact that Grandpa Richard still does not understand women.

After humour comes motivation, and in this case I am going to use an outside writer to help me, with a story about a lemonade stand?

One of my all time favourites is a talk I gave once about what I have learned from an apple.

Although I do not watch TV very much, I simply adore some of the commercials they dream up.

I have my opinion on various matters, and I can definitely be non PC (politically correct) but I am sure most of you will agree with my opinion about plastic food and drink containers.

No conversation is complete without a quote from a famous person.

The world would be a great place if we learned to co-operate, the way musicians can.

Gross. Did you know that you are mainly bacteria?

Here is an interesting ending to this look back. Why does Dolly Parton have a backache?

There you have it. 11 of my favourites. That leaves only 488 more of my favourites.

Pick a category and skim through them all. You are sure to find some that you enjoy reading.

Leave some comments while you are at it.

    Fun stuff, here Richard! AND some wisdom. Enjoyed your apple one especially… not sure about your comment about women… I wouldn’t go through all that rigamarole myself.

    Congrats Dad on the 500th post, I think that tradition states that you are now supposed to have a party to celebrate 😉

    500 Wow! I wouldn’t find the time to do 500. Well, unless it was to do with NASCAR. Enjoyed reading most of them. Didn’t have time to read them all.

    My favorite of course was the one you did on how helpful, sweet and caring your little brother was as a child.
