Ultima Thule

In ancient times the northernmost region of the habitable world - hence, any distant, unknown or mysterious land.

A gracious thank you to The American Thinker

By Aussiegirl

A gracious thank you to Thomas Lifson of The American Thinker for his kind and generous words today about Ultima Thule, and for linking to my piece on Senator Durbin's Lithuanian roots.

The American Thinker is one of the finest sites on the internet for its incisive pieces on the important issues of our time, and one of my daily must-reads. Make it one of yours.

Welcome to all AT readers. Make yourselves right at home and have a look around -- you might find something else that sparks your interest.

Congratulations are in order! I`m not surprised that Mr. Lifson linked to UT; you have been on fire!

Aussiegirl, you`ve had some of the very best stuff on the internet lately, and I read a LOT of good stuff so that shows just how highly I think of you! Keep up the good work!

According to legend, someone walked up to Theodore Sturgeon and sneered, "Ninety-five percent of science fiction is ..." and I'll clean it up for this family-oriented blog and say "garbage."
Sturgeon sneered back and replied, "Ninety-five percent of everything is ..."
Sturgeon's Law certainly applies to the Internet and understates the situation pertaining to blogs.
Aussiethule is, of course, in the other 5 percent and those of us, such as Timothy Birdnow and now American Thinker, who are regular readers here are surely unanimous in our gratitude and admiration.
Thanks, aussiegirl, for continuing the great work.

Gosh -- thanks, guys -- it sure helps to have the inestimable contributions of my great friend BonnieBlueFlag, who provides the insights of the heartland to broaden the multi-cultural point of view here. When it comes to what's important, Bonnie and I are in complete agreement, even though our backgrounds couldn't be more different. I'm always after her to tell us more of the great stories of growing up on a Tennesse farm, perhaps you can persuade her, because to me, these stories are as exotic as my stories are, no doubt, to her. And of course -- it helps to have great comments too -- even when we don't always agree.

Are you blushing Aussie? You put out some great stuff girlie. Keep going!

Aussiegirl, I agree most heartily with the other comments. What makes UT my very favorite blog? To start with, the titles you give your posts always get my attention and make me want to read further...and when I've finished reading, I've always learned something. And then there's the wit, humor, good sense, outrage, and above all the seriousness with which you tackle your subjects, which go together to make this such a great blog. All this recognition is so very well deserved, and I can only add...keep up the good work!

BonnieBlueFlag, you deserve your own paragraph here, because one of the pleasures of reading UT is happening upon a post that you have submitted. Whether it's about nature and the wildlife that lives near you, or a withering attack on some miscreant liberal, or a touching memory of your heroic father and the hell of D-Day, I always enjoy your writing--like Aussiegirl's full of level-headedness and seriousness...and then suddenly out pops some sly humor or an outrageous pun. What a great blog Aussiegirl has brought into being, and in doing so she's given me the chance to make her and your acquaintance. You too, keep up the good work!

Pindar, thank you so much for your special note to me. It came at I time when I needed a touch of encouragement. So often we never know how a kind word or gesture on our part, can mean so very much to another person. Sincerely, BonnieBlueFlag
