On Friday afternoon this blog reached a milestone of sorts- it seems like it was then that the 20,000th unique visitor arrived since I'd put sitemeter up in November of last year. Anyway thanks to everyone who has visited and welcome to anyone who hasn't. The writing's been fun, hope the reading has been as well- and all the comments have been good fun. Seeing the names Edmund, James Higham, Political Umpire, Ashok, F, Welshcakes Limoncello, Ian, Matthew Sinclair and many others over a comment not to mention some of the regular anonymous commenters has been a pleasure- often prompting a regret that the post wasn't good enough to convince those erudite philosophic tempraments. That's not to mention those who have linked to this blog or indeed allowed my posts into carnivals or allowed me to host carnivals. A milestone seems like a suitable point to thank everyone- so thanks everyone.
