Telephone - Telegraph - Tell A Blogger

Happy Blogiversary Schelly Talalay Dardashti and Tracing The Tribe. Tracing The Tribe, the fantastic blog about researching Jewish genealogy and named one of Family Tree Magazine's best websites for 2008, is two years old today. That's 10 in blog years. Here's to many more years of excellent writing, research and advice Schelly. You have a lot of loyal fans!

I had the great good fortune to meet and have lunch with Schelly and our good friend Lyn Blyden on Monday. What a woman! After the first hug it was as if we were friends who hadn't seen each other in years, not two strangers who had never met. We finished each other's sentences, ordered the same food and laughed at each other's puns.

Lunch was wonderful. (A special thank you to the Earth and Ocean restaurant in the W Hotel Seattle for taking such good care of us at lunch. And thank you Mr. Maven for making it happen.) The food, like the company, was to die for. We ordered three different desserts with three spoons and the noises coming from our table were reminiscent of a famous scene from the movie "When Harry Met Sally."

We were having so much fun, lunch lasted for three hours. We didn't want to leave. GeneaBloggers are the best people in the world. Kind and generous in writing they are even more so in person. Schelly baby - love you - you're the best.

That's how fast it moves in the blogosphere. Hey come to Seattle, we'll do lunch.

Still laughing over your Olympic post. That's the only Hurdle and Balance Beam I could operate.

Girl - you are too funny!
