Today, June 8, 2018 is a day to celebrate, as this posting you are now reading is the 6,000th posting since the author began this expression of his beliefs and of important historical and political events nearly ten years ago.
In two months and three days (August 11), it will be exactly ten years since my son, David Feinman, knowing my strong knowledge of history, and passion for politics, suggested that I start a blog.
Now, nearly ten years later, my blog not only includes the 6,000 postings, but also many intelligent and contributory comments by my readers and supporters.
It also includes a wide variety of web sites on the right side, as well as all of my History News Network articles, and those reproduced on Time and Newsweek, as well as articles on The Hill website.
Additionally, my C Span events on my Assassinations book, and a wide multitude of radio appearances are included, especially those on WWGH 107.1 FM, Marion, Ohio, over the past year, as well as others on Blog Talk Radio and other sites, and also relevant newspaper articles, and several videos of lectures on Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon B. Johnson at Florida Atlantic University Lifelong Learning in Jupiter, Florida.
This has been a fascinating and enriching nearly ten years, and I hope to continue to do this blog for many more years.
And I invite all of my readers to continue to contribute their comments and ideas, as they add a lot to this blog!
Congratulations, Ronald, for this milestone of a blog entry posting.
It was 64 years on this day that my father began work for his employer. He worked for the company 43 years. My father, now 86, has been retired 20 full years.
My aunt, whom I will be visiting next week (she turns 75 on Wednesday), in Colorado, worked her last day for her employer August 8, 2008 (08.08.08 or 08.08.2008).
I find, as I get older, some milestone and/or anniversary is about to or has become reached. (Or that it is applicable to someone who is close to me.)
Thanks, D, much appreciated.
Talking about milestones, I can share the following:
Although I retired in June 2011 from being a full time professor, I have just reached 46 years of college teaching, as I still teach part time in the fall and spring terms.
I have also reached 43 years since my gaining of the Ph. D. degree, under the tutelage of well known Professor Arthur Schlesinger, Jr at the City University of New York Graduate School.
I have also lectured for 20 years to adult groups on all kinds of political and historical topics.
I wish to continue part time teaching, lecturing, writing, and continuing the blog as I love my life as a retired person still active intellectually!
Congratulations, Ron! Keep on blogging!
Thanks, Fred, much appreciated!
Our family wishes you, congrats, Professor!
Thanks so much, Rustbelt Democrat and Family!
