A Merry Early Christmas to You

First of all, have you joined the cool kids club known as Twitter?   Just a reminder that you can follow 1,416 and Counting updates on Twitter.

Secondly, to the good and great people who read this blog:   a very merry Christmas to all of you.   To all those who have read, commented and participated in this blog, you have my many great thanks.

As of this post, this is my 200th post, and the blog has a little over 34,500 hits since starting here on WordPress in February of this year.    My dashboard tells me that 1,637 comments have been left on 1,416 and Counting since it’s inception (probably half of those are mine, you know).   In comparison to many other blogs on the great and good Internets, 34,500 hits and almost 1,700 comments is diddly-squat, but I have to tell you that I could never have imagined that I would ever reach that number some months ago when I started.

To the many people who have stopped by, commented, read, linked me on your own blogs and others’ blogs:  you have given me an already fantastic present — the gift of your valuable time, which is so very much appreciated.

I don’t know that I could repay the favor to all of you, but I do hope all of you have a very safe and merry Christmas, Hannukah, or whatever holiday you may celebrate at this time of the year.

In the meantime, I’m working on Armageddon but the epic, arrogant, egotistical Bay-ness deserves the full, healthy workup, so expect that tomorrow night, and I’ll catch all y’all on Saturday.
