2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 33 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

Thank you for your support in 2013.

I have BIG plans for  2014, including new blogs about the importance of citations of resources; the resolution of one of the “roadblocks” I encountered in 2013 and announcing the new members of the family line.  I will continue to post photographs, family recipes and little Vignettes of Life.

 

May you all have a Happy Healthy New Year. Keep warm and safe.
