Old Stuff Day as well, if a little late..........

...only because Ray has nagged me and my Apaches are drying!

Warhammer 39999 proposed an idea over at his blog.............


"This is why I’m proposing all bloggers highlight the content they’re most proud of on March 2nd (yes I'm a little late) in celebration of “Old Stuff Day.” On this day, each blogger can go through their history and find posts that they’d like to shake the dust off and present again to the community at large. Some suggestions for content that would be good to post:
Posts that you considered special that didn’t receive as much attention as you thought they deserved
Content that people liked in the past, but haven’t seen recently
Posts you might have created before your site received much traffic, and now deserve to be re-shown
Or any content you’re particularly proud of!"

My first thought of a post was when I looked in the mirror today and smiled and one side of my face didn't move and it reminded me of my post on that day over two years ago Bell's Palsy and Standardised Hand Signals for Close Range Engagement, I've tried to communicate with the missus this way.....no chance!

The second one is still my favourite story Chilli Tasting Competition Story with two comments from two and a half years ago........

The third is a 15mm Crimean War Battle Report from over two years ago with seven comments.....


What this has really done as well is to show all the bloggers who have disappeared over the couple of years, a lot of them sadly missed!

The are two competitions over at The Wargaming Site and Dux Homunculorum, don't be two disappointed when I win!

  4. It is fun to look back at what came before but you're right as well that it can result in seeing a lot of people who sadly aren't around anymore. It also appears that I missed the cue, or I probably would have looked back myself. Then again that's a lot of stuff to look back on, and I'm lazy.

  6. I myself am fond of Frannonia and the town of Angry, to include the forces, terrain, and flags.

  8. Enjoyed this posting and the nostalgia pieces, Dude! As ome who is (also?) seeing the big six-zero diminishing in the rearview mirror, I can relate to the 3 Rules of Mounting Decrepitude.

    But I especially enjoyed the Chilli-Judging story. Eyes streaming, I found my face aching with the unaccustomed exercise.
    Cheers,

  13. I'll go over and have a look at the stories, they sound good. Look forward to seeing those apaches.

  14. It was great to read some posts even I've never seen before. I'm not sure we're brave enough, however, to dust off any of our old posts that only had 1-2 comments, were all words, and probably not great.

  15. Nice post Fran, it's good to see you're still going strong even after such a looooooong time ;-P

    Cheers Sander
