Last Pogo in Podunk

Sharp eyed and regular readers of our efforts will note that today marks an anniversary for our narrative of Podunkian life.

It was on this day back in 2004, that we began the process of cataloguing the ups and downs of our little corner of world.

Some seven thousand plus posts and seven years invested in observation and reporting on what we believed were some of the items of importance to the local community. Offering both details and background on a variety of issues, and when the mood struck an occasional opinion on them.

Perhaps it's a seven year itch, or as Roseanne Cash would say the Seven Year Ache, but regardless, this it would seem would be an appropriate time to bring to an end this journal of Podunkian developments, marking a good long run, but one which reaches its last stop today.

Our thanks to those that took the time to read our efforts and especially to those that  took time to offer up some worthwhile commentary to the daily debate that we tried to introduce through this forum.

We would be remiss if we did not also thank those over at hackingthemainframe for the bumps to the postings and the platform for wider distribution over the last few years.

As Geoffrey Chaucer once noted, all things must come to an end, and so it is thus for this version of the Chronicles of Podunk.

And so, this post makes for the bookend to that which opened up the blog back in 2004.

Thanks for reading, your loyalty was much appreciated.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, The Podunkian has left the portal!
