I couldn't have imagined when I started blogging on library computers, limited to 30 minute sessions, that I'd become so obsessed with it that I'd be putting up post #12,001 and looking back at more than 350,000 page views. Thanks to everyone who opens a page and takes a look. It makes the work worthwhile. So while I keep myself informed and entertained in a way I never thought possible five years ago, I get the double satisfaction of sharing it with all my virtual friends. I think a hiatus is called for in the near future so I can spend time solely on improving the quality of the product. I'll give you adequate notice when that's going to happen, meanwhile, there are 12,000 other posts you can go exploring in. Please do!
