Celebrating Education with Grand Rounds, A Fourth-Year Anniversary for The Carnival of the Vanities


Ah yes.


By now, all the youngsters have returned to school, although here, we started in mid-August.

And nothing expresses the joy our young counterparts feel about their return to the Hallowed Halls of Education quite like this photo.

Which is actually a photo of my daughter.

Hey, any excuse for a gratuitous use of a family member.

She can’t complain.

This blog paid for her school clothes!


For those of us old enough to realize that the search for knowledge is never really over, Amy at Diabetes Mine has a beautiful edition of Grand Rounds compiled with the theme of “Celebrating Education”!

And speaking of celebration, Amy was the recipient of the Eli Lilly & Co’s “Lilly For Life” Acheivement Award for Diabetes Journalism! Congratulations Amy! Her tour of Eli Lilly & Co. is chronicled here.


This is another exciting time in the Blogosphere, as the very first blog carnival EVER celebrates four continuous years of posting this week.

The Carnival of the Vanities #208 is celebrating at it’s “homebase”,

The great thing about the COTV is that anyone can submit their best posts. Emergiblog is proud to have been represented a couple of times this last year.

Nine bloggers who submitted to the first COTV are still blogging, four years later!

If you’ve never done so before, do check out the Carnival of the Vanities this week.

A reason to celebrate, indeed!

    your daughter is beautiful, btw.
