Happy Birthday to us!
Happy Birthday to us!
Happy Birthday, dear Beehive...
Haaaapppppyy Birrrrrthdaaayyyy to Usssssssssss!


Yes, The Beehive is one year old today! And this is our 293rd post in 365 days. Not bad, eh?

We started this blog for the sole purpose of having a family forum for the five of us to journal our thoughts and household happenings -- a record of our days together. We didn't think anyone else would be interested, and certainly never expected to draw around 100-140 visitors per day! We continue to be rather bowled over by that. And we are quite honored that our toddling blog was nominated for two "best-of" blog awards in recent months. Even made the finalist rounds, which almost went to our heads. But don't worry -- we lost, so we're back to normal and humble again.

I couldn't begin to pick a favorite post from the past year, but I could definitely come up with my top 10 if pressed. But the one that has garnered the most comments ever was about... shoes. Flip-flops, to be precise. Go figure.

To paraphrase the immortal words of Eeyore, "Thanks for noticin' us." We adore the Beehive Faithful for bothering to visit us and for delighting us with all your comments. To tell you the ugly truth, we just love the attention. So please keep it up -- it makes us happy, and that's what we're after.

Please join us in a little toast, would you?

Credit must be given where credit is due. The originator and driving force behind the The Beehive was The Queen. This is an experiment which has enriched our family life and our associations with others whom we cherish. I thank you Queenie for putting this together.

Actually, the driving force behind *any* beehive is the queen. Nome Sane? So. It's fitting.

To quote Boynton, "Hippo Birdie to you..."

Raising our glasses! (If we can find them...;-))

Umm...I was under the impression that there would be cake here... *Looks around and scratches head* But, I don't see any kind of foodstuff, not even a bowl of barely salted peanuts...

Woops! Found the glasses. They were on my head! (Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk)

Love your blog!!! It's one of our favorites. My 16yo daughter and I have used several of your blogs for interesting discussion starters. You make us laugh, and you make us think.
Congrats and my coffee cup is raised to you!
