“The Rest of the Story”

Some of you when reading the Title for today’s blog post immediately thought of Paul Harvey Aurandt, better known as Paul Harvey.  I recall hearing some of his famous “The Rest of the Story” segments broadcast on the radio.    Today’s blog post could have been entitled  “July blog post updates” but this Title is so much better!

Update on Dominoes & Desks (Awaiting my new desk) – It arrived on Tuesday of this week, has been installed and I have been getting all of the tweaks and adjustments made to it.  The mouse arrived too! I am loving my new ergonomic chair.   There will be an updated blog post once all-settled-in along with ready to debut photo.

Dad’s Typewriter continues to be enjoying its time away from home with its ‘spa day’ – as it has been getting a tune-up.   There is talk it will be ready end of this week which is very exciting!

In follow-up to “the Eagle has landed”, one of my email blog subscribers (who is a dear friend) mentioned that Neil Armstrong lived near them before he passed and had argued that he was misquoted, should have been …step for A man, not step for man.  I shared that I had come across some stories about that – and the most popular one I had found said he had meant to say ‘for A man’, but it came out ‘man’.  When I researched for that blog post I had re-listened to the broadcast live feed that is on YouTube with Walter Cronkite and what I hear is Neil saying ‘step for man”. 

The Fourth of July blog post “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE” (Copyright 1981 by Kelly Strong) using Google Analytics that was the highest read blog post to date here on AnchoredScraps.com. 

Each day after I post my blog post I tweet the Title along with link to the post and add any @ mentions of anyone referenced in the blog post.   The blog post last week, “Rainy Days and Mondays” that tweet (received 25 retweets and 10 favorites) included thanking and referencing  @IMPaulWilliamswho co-wrote the song of same title.  It was a joy to then see that tweet received a favorite by him!  Be sure to check out his  Gratitude and Trust”site including pod casts.

The blog post on Fanciful Flowers Stamped Card (& definitions)  in that blog post I had written “In putting together today’s blog post it caused me to research what is exactly a “Stamped Card”.   When Tweeting that blog post had been posted it was great to hear a reply back from the USPS Stamps (On Twitter @USPSstamps) saying “Nice investigative work on the definition of “stamped card.” We’re also looking forward to Fanciful Flowers on 7/31!”

This Saturday, July 25, will be blog number 150 – making it 150 consecutive daily blog posts since launching AnchoredScraps.com on February 26!  Thank you for continuing to be on this journey with me.
