I haven't been keeping track, but I know it took much less time for the second thousand people to visit my site than the first. My thanks, and I hope you've stimulated or at least mildly diverted by what you read. (Longer posts will be returning now that I've replaced my broken TV)
If you stop here, I want you to return. So feel free to write or comment with any thoughts...thanks to all who have commented so far, keep them coming.
