Unsurprisingly, I wasn`t the only one posting birthday greetings to W E B Du Bois yesterday.
I`d like to single out just one that I particularly liked ;
Happy Birthday W E B DuBois !, posted by bluemountainecards, 23 Feb 2012 at www.bluemountain.com/blog .
Their Du Bois posting is excellent, and well worth a read.
Their blog, as you may notice, is actually for an American-based ecard company. In addition to promoting their own products, they post recipes and poems, send birthday greetings to individuals as varied as W.E.B. Du Bois , Edgar Allan Poe, Edward Lear and John Lennon, provide potted histories of Mardi Gras and Kwanzaa, and note events such as Valentine`s Day, Winter Solstice, Cyber Monday, Black Friday, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month, Rosh Hashanah and much else.
How anyone could not like this intriguing blog is quite beyond me ! Next time you have a few minutes to spare, give it a look.
