It appears that sometime in the last week or so I surpassed 250,000 visitors to this old piece o' crap blog. Oh, I know that is a pittance compared to the big boys. It is a small number of visits even for many of the blogs listed over there on the right. But the notion that people bothered to look at my word splatters a quarter of a million times leaves me happy and humbled. I do not possess the vocabulary to express the thanks I owe each of you.
