Good morning, good afternoon, good evening wherever you are. From the New World to the Old World, from all the continents, welcome to my 1500th post … and this post is about celebrating the occasion!
For the entire weekend, please take the time to comment, state where you are from, say something about your blog, interact with my guests here and on my sidebar, listen to music, and enjoy the food and beverages. Entertainment will appear throughout the celebration, so comeback often … and bring a friend!
By the way, the theme for the next act of Life: The Musical will be Play – so I will give more information on the next Monday Morning Entertainment. After all, Play is good to follow Act 9’s Work.
