Peace In Our Time




For those who may have missed it, an agreement has been reached between PJM and myself, successfully ending our short but tragic feud.

Actually, there was never a feud.  PJM is a swell fellow and I hope everyone can understand that everything between PJM and myself is written tounge-in-cheek in good-natured fun.

I never intended to write a blog, it happened by chance.  Several years ago, for a college class, we were required to keep a blog for a month or so.  After the class ended, I retained an inactive blog and never put another thought into writing one again until this last week.

Although imitation is the highest form of flattery and I greatly admire OPOD, the content will be varied.  How PJM finds the time to keep such a regularly great blog is beyond me.  I have great admiration for his unselfish efforts, not just with OPOD, but with his other websites, his work with students, and his generous interactions others (including those he has never personally met).

Well, I've had a lot of fun this week.  I hope you did too.  I'm glad to report that blog polling has not erased either of us from existence, so if you are so inclined, check back from time-to-time as I hope to continue things, but on a less than daily basis.

Au revoir mes amis!

I just have one question, Nate. Did I hear right? You getting a tractor? Can't wait to see a photo.

I was ready to throw out all my other favorite blogs and empty my entire bookmarks folder just so I could devote my time to reading the hilarious sparing between the Evil Nate Maas and Super Villan PJM! Thanks for giving it up so I can have my life back. :D

Three cheers: Yay, peace in our times! Yay, inspired blogging! Yay, new corn cob pipes for all Grimes!

Nate Maas said...

Thanks everyone.

Momma Nic, ha ha, but no tractor. I'm willing to take the gentleman part and leave the farming to others.

Debbie, from one teacher to another, thanks and back at ya!

Joan, I checked out your What Grammy Cooked blog. I'll have to try out a few of those. Thanks for sharing!

Astrocrabpuff, thanks for the cheer!

Well Mr Nate Mass you did prove to be a worthy opponent. I think though, that you have missed your calling, you should be in politics.

With Mr PJM having such a sweet baby face I fear that super villianry is not in his character and a rescue mission by the good lady was inevitable. They do say that behind every successful man there is a good woman.

Cheers from Australia

Annemarie, well spoken. Thanks for joining in from the Land Downunder!

Just an aside: I've seen THE piece of paper Chamberlain is holding in his hand. (It has Hitler's signature on it.) It is on display at The Imperial War Museum in London. (I've also seen R. F. Scott's journal - it's on display at The British Museum. Sorry for the allusion to the other blog.)

Thanks for noticing, Chuck. I thought it would be a funny way to end the feud.
