THE PHOTO on the front and above was posted on March 10, 2014, taken by Beata Wolniewicz, at the launch party for MyLittleBird. See how bright and shiny LittleBird Janet looks in her white blouse and pearls? And how LittleBird Nancy glows in her black-and-white sweater-jacket (which is, I’m happy to report, a bit too large now). Seven long years later, we could use
the ministrations of whoever did the airbrushing on Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, below. But, thanks to all of you, we’re still plugging away at MyLittleBird.com.
We thought we should commemorate our seventh anniversary by doing a short compendium of some of our favorite posts and, even more important, your favorites, as determined by all those spooky algorithms.
If your favorite isn’t here, you can blame a few lost brain cells on our part—although, as Green Acre columnist Stephanie Cavanaugh points out, she has written more than 230(!) columns and simply can’t remember them all. Mary Carpenter has written a similar number of Well-Being columns on a wide range of topics (and has produced some of the most competent Covid reporting around). And art director Kathy Legg has wrestled how many photos into our media library? At least several thousand. And then in her “spare” time, she has managed to write a piece or two on top of that.
Enough. Time to take a well-earned stroll down Memory Lane while we still have the brain cells to do it. All you have to do is click on the link above or below each pic.
