2012 in review – More Viewers & Subscribers I need.. yes…. :)

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,500 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.

New Year 2012 and Memories



As we welcome in a new year, and prepare for whatever it may bring, I hope we all find a little time now and then, to be thankful for those around us and what we have….. and to remember those who have passed away, and keep a happy thought in mind, allowing them to live a little again in the new year.
Be kind to one another. Life is ridiculously short.
Welcome to 2012.
