3 YEARS AGO (MARCH & APRIL 2013): MEMORY LANE

3 years ago...

3 years ago…

MONTHLY MEMORY LANE: 3 years ago–March & April 2013. I missed March memory lane, so both are combined here. I mark in red three posts most apt for a general background on key issues in this blog [1]. I’ve added some remarks in blue this month, for some of the posts that are not marked in red.

March 2013

[1]Posts that are part of a “unit” count as one. There are relevant posts that I don’t mark in red simply because they’ve been reblogged more than once, or recently. Monthly memory lanes began at the blog’s 3-year anniversary in Sept, 2014.
