Remember K-TEL? September 30, 2008

Filed under: Nostalgic Homemaking — LotusMama @ 4:04 pm

Back when music came on records, did anybody else buy those “greatest hits” compilations put out by K-TEL? I know that I had a few of them in the 80s, back when I was awfully fond of Lionel Richie, Thriller and Wham. Thank goodness tastes change. Although, strangely, I’m still usually listening to 70s and 80s music. Hmmm.

I mention K-TEL because my one year blogiversary is coming up in a couple of days and I thought that I would look back to what I posted way way way back last year (forever on the Internets, don’t you know…). Unlike K-TEL, I don’t know that I’d call these greatest hits, but it’s fun to look through the bargain bin just the same.

For those who are long time readers (Hi, Mom and B) you might recognize my various fads; for the rest, I’m spinning some of the oldies:

My fascination with France: Onion Soup, scrambled eggs and a little peek into homemaking in la maison.

To Russia with love: a stew (see the comments for the recipe) and tea.

Waxing Nostalgic: brigadoon, June Cleaver, and aprons.

Thanks to all of you for visiting my blog and posting your wonderful comments. I really appreciate it.

    Honey, I remember “Your Hit Parade.” It made the transition from radio to black-and-white TV in the early 50’s. They had a perky singer named Dorothy Colllins. That name just popped into my head this morning. Funny what the ancient brain dredges up. Love your blog.

    Happy upcoming blogiversary! πŸ™‚

    I went back and read your Brigadoon post (mostly because I LOVE that musical), and I think what you said is so right!

    “Cozy happiness” is wonderful, but variety is the spice of life! πŸ™‚
