Sometime later today or tomorrow, we will reach the 2,000 hits on this blog page! Thank you so very much for being an active reader.

I do need to correct one thing. Last blog I made a gentle reminder to click on the ad once in a while to show your appreciation. I actually said "righ-click" on the ad, but that was must actually click on it to count. The response was outstanding, but not a dime was earned that way. Oh well.

Sorry about the confusion. That should remind me that like preachers, I should just hope for the best and never talk about money. Anyway, if the spirit moves you to check out an ad, I would appreciate a normal click so it counts. Thanks so much.
