Actually, it was one year ago on February 29th, during a leap year, that I started massively transferring all blog posts to this LFD site at Blogger. The mostly young site, with start-of-blogging-for-real anniversary noted earlier, had been located elsewhere, an elsewhere that hardly exists anymore.

For the record, Oregon is pronounced ORY-gun (or OR-ih-gun), not Ory-GONE - as in gone, bye bye - and not OR-gun, either, leaving out the 'ih' or 'ee' part of ORY. I say this as a non-random (former) Oregonian, the daughter of 2 Oregonians, the grandaughter of 4 Oregonians, back until the begining of the Oregon trail. I.e., I'm a westerner, if you hadn't noticed.
For that earlier anniversary, I was taken to task (just a bit) for showing a picture of an average to below average (read: latter) beer. Given that there will be several more blogiversaries in the geoblogosphere coming up during the next year (and a recent one at Dave Schumaker's Geology News - it was he who took me to task, by the way) - I'd like to recommend a Better Beer with which to celebrate. And it's a geological beer, to boot!
Yes, it's Stone IPA, a decent to good India Pale Ale. Yay for IPA's! See this review by Geology Joe at SlingShot Thought for more details on the beer.
