Epic blog stat!

This is the 1,000th post on the Lansey Brothers' Blog!!! Hooray!

We are using this milestone to mark a new beginning for our blog.  A lot has changed for us over the past nine years.  When we started this blog we were all in college.  Now all three of us have completed postgraduate degrees, have jobs, and live in different states.  Andrew/Aryeh moved cross country for a job with the US Navy. Jonathan/Yoni founded a startup and works for another startup in Boston.  Eli got married, has two amazing sons (who are also, technically-speaking, Lansey Brothers) and works in NY.

So, you may have seen this coming, but we are now officially switching to an unpredictable post schedule. If you're not already a subscriber and want to know when we post then you are welcome to sign up for emails, or subscribe via RSS; see the sidebar on the right for info. We are hereby untethering ourselves from the weekly schedule we set down almost 9 years ago, and have loosely followed since. 

For those of you who have been following our blog over the years we thank you, and appreciate all the comments and discussion along the way.  We’re beginning our tenth year of the Lansey Brothers’ Blog pretty soon, and we hope to continue entertaining and conversing with you for at least another nine years.

Eli, Jonathan/Yoni, Andrew/Aryeh

Wild blueberry picking

A few weeks ago we went wild blueberry picking at Minnewaska State Park Preserve.
 There are hills there that are covered in wild blueberry bushes!

And, now for something completely different. Apparently Lake Minnewaska has a leech problem:
And yet, for some reason, they allow swimming and people actually swim in it!!!
