Five Hundred Posts Later

Today happens to be my five hundredth post. I thought I'd mark the occasion with this detail shot of Alex Janvier's mural Morning Star at the Museum of History. For those of you dealing with that winter storm, you could use some colour.


And the number five hundred brings to mind this song.

That'll stay in your head all day

You're welcome.

  7. Hey - well done! And congratulations on a great blog. I don't know what it is about that particular Proclaimers number, but mostly everyone loves it. I'm going to work hard to get 'Sunshine on Leith' into my head!

  13. @Peter: it's such a fun song, after all.

    @Gemma: Mr. Janvier is a First Nations artist, and such a good one.

    @Grace: it has that way of taking hold in the mind, after all.

    @Tomas: thanks!

    @Andy: given that some bloggers have been doing this for years, five hundred posts doesn't seem that much!

    @Gracita: thank you!

    @Marianne: it's one of my favourite works of art in this area.

    @Mike: it's an addictive tune, but in a good way.

    @Janis: thank you!

    @Revrunner: with 1000 to come sometime next year!

    @Merisi: thank you!

    @Marleen: it'll take awhile.

    @Sharon: and it sounds good live in concert too.

    @Jane and Chris: it'll take all day and you'll still be singing "I would walk five hundred miles"....

  29. Congrats on your 500th post! That is an achievement.
    Love this bright spot of color.
    I didn't click on the link, but I am guessing it's that "I would walk 500 miles..." song.

  33. Congrats on #500! I love this piece of art.
    Good, bad, or indifferent...I'm going to resist listening to the the link you've posted. I'm too susceptible to ear worms...

  34. that is wild. i love all the cheerful-ness it does have!! cool times. we had a bit of snow Tuesday - & it was pretty much gone that evening. so not cool in my book. i want to be drenched with snow? i am not happy but oh well times go on. ( :

  35. @Cloudia: well, it's not a Justin Bieber ear worm. I could never be so cruel.

    @VP: will do!

    @Tamago: I could have easily chosen that for the upcoming theme day!

    @Pamela: a lot of areas got hit pretty hard!

    @Country Gal: we'll probably get more snow too.

    @Halcyon: the song is one and the same!

    @RedPat: it's such a good piece to show again.

    @Anna: before you know it, you'll be getting up to that milestone.

    @Ciel: I expect every time I go into that museum, I'll photograph that mural.

    @Kay: in this case it's a very good ear worm!

    @Beth: the snow we've got on the ground will stay with us for a couple more months.

  36. Congrats on #500, William, and for providing some color other than all the white we have seen in the past 24 hours here. I must be living in a cave as I had never heard of The Proclaimers before but have heard the song before. And, yes, it did stay with me after hearing it!

  37. Huge number. Since I haven't seen this in the group, I'll mention that I have Tweeted here.

  42. @Beatrice: that one really is their signature song.

    @Mari: thanks!

    @Lois: well, I wouldn't do something like put in a song like I'm Too Sexy. That would be too cruel.

    @Whisk: thanks!

    @Janis: I'll look it up!

    @Randy: thanks!

    @Linda: I can't get enough of this mural!
