A decade of candles and fireworks

Ten years ago today, Blog on the Run was born. You don’t know, and probably don’t care, why. That’s cool.

To mark the occasion, I’ve created a Greatest Hits page, stuff that I think has held up well and/or that I’m particularly proud of. It’s a short list, although I might add to it at some point.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and contributed to the conversation over the years, but most especially to my friend Fred Gregory, who has been practically a co-host. He and I see eye to eye politically on practically nothing, but in our respective ways we each honor God, country and family, and we honor that honor in one another.

Kind of like these guys …

… although which of us is which depends on the subject, the time of day and how much we’ve each had to drink.

Here’s to another 10 … and, in the wake of a grim decade for our country, to better days for all of us.


  1. Congratulations on 10 years! Well done!

  2. Alenda Lux Ubi Orta Libertas and Esse Quam Videri

    To achieve Ne Ultra is something special but Χαλεπα Τα Καλα.

  3. Interesting. My employer’s Latin motto — palma non sin pulvere — means much the same thing.

  4. Lex, belated congratulations – I’ve been a far too infrequent visitor here of late. Keep it up!
