Congratulations Naomi!! 500 posts and photos! Wow! That should be enough for a book! "My Life As A Blog" hehehe..
It's truly amazing how time flies and how we each look back and shake out heads saying things like, I never thought I'd still be doing this! hehe.. Like you I am thankful for "computer friends" and for the fact that for those of us who rarely get "out" to keep up with things besides having a television, that doesn't answer us back!
Here's too the next 500 Naomi!! Big *hugs*!
500 - Congratulations to you Naomi,
your site has been educational and interesting from the day I stumbled upon it and I make sure I catch up everyweek to read your wonderful tales. Here's to another 500....and keep up the beautiful photography.
Congrats and here's to 500 more!
WOW 500!!!!!! And all on one blog! Congratulations, dear Naomi.
And Happy Birthday this week, I believe. Can't wait to read your birthday post (with pix I am sure). Speaking of posts, check the one that comes to your house somewhere around Thursday or Friday.
Again, congratulations on your blog count and your birthday.
Naomi, I have read all 500 of your posts and I treasure them and you! Thanks for the mention (I am proud to be there). Those of us who read your posts hope there will be 5,000 more of them still to read!
Good morn. Naomi, thank you for sharing your thoughts, and your friends, and your smiles, as well as your tears. Am so glad that Karen introduced you to me. You are a bright spot in my very mundane life:)
CONGRATULATIONS on your 500th post!
Happy Birthday in advance too!!!
500! Congratulations! I know you think we add so much to your life - but, sweetie, you add to my life and help make it special just by reading and knowing you! You are a delight!!!!!
Thank you for the 500 blogs, the dedication to sticking to it and sharing your life, the beauty you see with everyone else. Your blog is always pleasing to visit and I usually come away with something to smile about. Your post here was a celebration not only of your blogging but all blogs. Thank you for including mine in it :)
Congratulations Naomi. You are right, this blogging thing is great! I haven't managed to read all 500 of your posts because they are so wordy and full of pics and I don't want to miss anything. But such a delight to read. I am so glad I found you.
How can you possibly be celebrating 77 years on this earth in a few days, your outlook on life is so exuberant and youthful!
Your recent post is a lovely tribute to all the blogger friends you have made over the past few years. 500 posts... you deserve 500 Congratulations!
I've been away in England for the past 3 weeks on a wondereful vacation, so I haven't been able to catch up on everyone's blognews. So that's my task for today, as it's raining outside, and I really should be out there getting rid of the weeds that have sprouted while I was away!
you're so amazing, Naomi, how could we not keep coming back! you've touched all of us as well.
Congratulations, my dear Naomi!
500 great posts and many beautiful photos... it's an amazing event! I agree with Deslily, that should be enough for a wonderful book!
This post is a lovely homage to all the blogger friends! Thank you so much for the mention and I am very proud for your compliments to me, too! I am so glad I meet you and I thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and wonderful life with us!
I am looking forward to the Anniversary Post!
Many hugs, my dear friend!
Congratulations! You are an inspiration. If your blog means a lot to you- it means so much to those of us who stumbled upon your blog and became instantly addicted to your frequent insight.
500? 500?? 500?!
Wow! Congratulations Naomi (aka OOLoTHs) Terrific.
And a birthday this week - man, we'll all be over for the party. You have many reasons to celebrate.
Many more posts to you!
Your stories are so wonderful and I'm sure you have many more surprises up your sleeve.
Way to go Naomi :D Don't forget me too ya heheheheh....
I am amazed at your positive attitudes and the way you exudes the energy Naomi. Me wanna be just like you when I am 77 years and I am certainly looking forward to your next 500 posts :D
Congratulations my friend. BIG FESTIVE HUGS!!!! You are one of my truly favorite people and I have never even met you in person, what does that say about blogging! I think we all see so quickly to each other's hearts and motives with blogging.
You have been a treasure to find and read...a gem in my life. I love coming here and Martin and I both are really really hoping that we too can make your "in person" list. I think that would be wonderful.
Thank you for the nice things you said about me, about us. You are too sweet for words. But it isn't just your kindness and charisma that keeps us all coming back, you are a very talented lady. Writing, photography...you have it all. The total package. You may have started out not knowing anything about blogging but you sure turned into one hell of a blogger!!!!!
Cheers to 500 more!
Naomi, you are just too sweet for words! I am going to plan a business trip to LA just to see you! Congratulations on the 50 posts...here's to another 500!

Congratulations on making 500, you do age well! xx
Congratulations on your 500! :-)
And it only seems yesterday I was recommending blogging to cyberkitten....
I'm so glad you enjoyed your birthday present......I hope you revisit it and enjoy it for many, many years to come.....
Bravo to you, Naomi, on your 500th post.
However, I believe having all these people visit here is a true tribute to the wonderful, caring, compassionate and REAL person that YOU are! The proof is in the pudding, as they say.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be called your "friend" and I'm so very glad our paths have crossed.
(and yes....you can expect some of that Parisian chocolate when I return in October!)
Much love and hugs to you,
Congrats dear blog friend and what a lovely post really proving my saying: 'Blogging Connecting People' Its an honour to be listed among your friends - a privilege!
It must be more than two years since we met. I think it was through my blog friend in Norway: Charles. It has been great visiting and reading since you share your daily life in a very readable way. You are a wise woman with a lot of life experience and you share about good old times as well as from your garden with birds and plants.
You are a role model in Blogsphere and I guess you remember my small contribution to you almost a year ago :-)
To make it short: Life is better with you in it Naomi! and you know you are welcome to visit me and Tor in Norway any time!
Wow! Thank you Naomi for all the warm and kind words shared...500! You certainly have some good and faithful friends. Cheerio.
I found your blog a few months ago.
I always enjoy reading it, but, I don't always leave a comment.
But, this time I want to say: "Congratulations" on the 500 posts!!!
Naomi, I can't believe your blog is 500 posts old! You are, without a doubt, one of my biggest blessings of blogging. (try to say that fast 10 times!)
Your friends & their locations speak so truly of you. Even though you are limited in socializing physically, look at you! You're going all over the globe, woman!
Congratulations & here is to another 500 posts. :)
My goodness... you read a lot of people's blogs. How on earth do you ever have the time to write on yours? And I think back to our visit, a treasure in my memory, for sure, and thank you for the time you took to meet with us! It was so much fun.
Your plant pictures and narrative about them were what attracted me to your blog. You are a jewel that just keeps shining brighter and brighter. :)
It's been such a treat to read your posts and see your photos!
You're kind of like my "blog baby". I remember when you had the first blog and couldn't put pictures in a post and NOW you're doing videos!
I love you to pieces, Naomi!
Congratulations on the huge milestone Aunty Em. I am so happy we met via our blogs even if mine got vaporised and resurrected but was never quite the same again lol.
Sorry for the long absences but I am up to my eyeballs in learning lists of trivia.
Ask me for the names of bond girls and I am your girl.
I am going to be a contestant on a tv quiz show next week so freaking out and learning all sorts of rubbish lol.
Long may your blog continue, you have so many stories yet to be told and so many adventures yet to be written.
Love you thissssssssssssssssssss big !
Happy 500th post!!!!!
Blogging has been a great gift for you and for me too, also, as well.
What a joy it was to actually be one of the few blog buddies who had actually met with you face to face!
I will be seeing Rachel over the July 4th weekend, and it will be the second time I've met her face to face. I intend to HUG her really goooood!!!!
I still remember the very first comment I got from you "Old Lady of the Hill," and I liked you right off the bat! It was as if we had already been talking and just picked up where we left off. I've learned so much here and love to come and see the pretty pictures too.
Mazel Tov - 500 posts is a spectacular accomplishment and a blessing for those of us visit and read as you so generously share your life and your fantastic Hollywood and New York experiences. Naomi, you are a touchstone for me - hugs and hugs across the miles.
I'm so sorry I didn't get over here sooner to wish you a happy 500th post, but thank you for mentioning me and thank you for enriching my life and my knowledge with your wonderful posts. You are truly a beautiful blessing in the blogosphere and here's to the next 500 posts! :)
WOW...500 POSTS....What a grand tribute to all of us who have loved knowing you through all 500 miles we have travelled together ...congratulations dear sweet Naomi.
Congrats on 500 posts! Since I'm late getting here, it's more than that now. Don't recall now when I found your blog, but I continue to enjoy your words and photos though I don't make it here every day. Still taking care of lots of issues.
Just keep on doing it please
I'm honoured to be mentioned in your special post.
Oh wow. I'm mentioned in a blog post and my "somebody's giving you attention" siren didn't go off?
Congrats on the 500th post. Yeah, I'm commenting a lot. Comes from neglecting to visit for a while.
Speaking of classic films, if you have TCM, The Apartment is on at 4:15 today. And since that is absolutely my favorite movie, I kind of feel the need to shout it from the rooftops.
