50,000 AND COUNTING...

Excuse me for having a little celebration but today marked the 50,000th unique visit to this venerable old blog since its inception in September 2007. So, thanks for making those 50K visits whomever you all are and thanks especially to those special people who make the effort to praise or damn me with their comments or share their, frankly baffling, theories with us all.

I'm terribly grateful you found your way here to this little backwater of the blogosphere to indulge my eccentric passions and humble, written efforts. If you really like reading this stuff then you could do me the greatest favour by becoming a Follower, especially if you have a Blogger blog yourself. Click on the Follow This Blog link over yonder and keep tabs on the site updates.

You can also follow my random thoughts on Twitter. Tweet, tweet!

To mark this little achievement the Cathode Ray Tube boffins have been feverishly working away in the back room, mostly with the light off and with no tea, to spruce up this august portal of the interweb. So, panic not if you try and visit and get told you haven't got the special password to get onto the blog (the boffins will be busy and don't want to spoil it for you) or you see the furniture disappear and the interior decoration suddenly goes all modern and swishy. Normal service will, I trust, be pretty much resumed by the weekend. The odd tweak here and there might be needed but the re-decorating should be completed. A sneak preview below....

See you on the other side!

    Fifty thousand? Quite right too!

    Congratulations, sir!

  2. P.S. Ever read the Sandman comics?

  3. Thanks Gray and Lucy!

    No, Lucy I have to admit I haven't read the Sandman comics. Does this mean I'm now on the naughty step?

    Just a heads up: The blog will be off-line from tomorrow as the boffins (i.e. me) set up the super-douper shiny version. I hope to have all the page elements sorted by Saturday.

  4. You are on the nice step...

    Just that Morpheus, the title character in the Sandman comics, is neither big nor hunky. Sorry to disappoint.

  5. Oooo. Shiny! I like.

  6. That's the spirit, Dave.

    Good work Frank, it looks well smart.

  10. Thanks, Rob.

    How could I not give you a button!

    Things still to sort out but it's settling down nicely and reactions have been positive.
