Almost Famous

Last week, a colleague of mine mentioned seeing this blog featured in the newspaper (Daily Hampshire Gazette).  This, of course, made me curious -- I knew nothing about being in the paper.  So after work the following day, I made my way to the library.  I was headed to the library anyway -- I needed to pick up a few new books and drop off those I had already read.  Upon arrival I headed off to where they keep the newspapers and found the current DHG.  However, much to my disappointment, the entire middle section had been removed, and was nowhere to be found.  I checked a few other days worth of papers, but there was no mention of Madley Hadley, and so I decided to cut my losses and be content with the library books.
To make a long story short, the librarians actually had the article at hand (they were quite pleased with it), and made me a copy of it.  (Click on the picture to see it.)

Perhaps you, dear reader, are one of those who saw the article in the paper and stopped by to see what all the fuss was about, or was one of those to whom the link was forwarded -- there was a record number of hits on the blog the day of and the day after the article.  If you have visited once, are visiting again, or are here to stay, welcome!  Please peruse, leave comments; for a little more (or a little less) you can even follow the twitter feed.  Thank you for visiting.

Thanks to the Daily Hampshire Gazette and Phoebe Mitchell for discovering and spreading word about the blog.

Special thanks to my colleague and the librarians at the Hadley public library.  If not for you, I would have missed my two days of fame!

This blog is also featured on Pioneer Valley Local Greenie -- more on that in a later post.

I should make note here that the bread picture in the article was taken by Mr. Madley.

Interesting - I would have thought an interview with you would have been nice to include in the article...

Thanks, All! It was a fun discovery -- and very gratifying. I was happy to be able to get a copy, but you're right Laraine -- it would have been great to know ahead of time some way or another.
Happy May!
