10,000 and Counting

     Two days ago, my page-view counter clicked over to 10,000. I was busy helping my father prepare for a medical procedure, which is why I didn't post anything then. But it is time for a big

"Thank you!"

to my readers!

10,000 is a gratifying personal milestone, and I'm grateful and pleased. When I started, a little over a year ago, that number seemed too far off to even be realistically considered! I felt good when I saw hit number 100.

At the same time, I've got a long way to go before I catch up with someone like Ian Young, the "Bonsai Eejit:" over 300,000 hits to his blog, last time I looked! I admit that I have shamelessly copied some of Ian's practices, like trying to use enough good pictures while avoiding visual clutter.

Visitors to my blog have come from at least 77 countries and territories, and every inhabited continent. Not surprisingly, the greatest number come from English-speaking countries, my native USA leading the way. But enough come from elsewhere to remind me that there are educated people everywhere!

 Visitors and site members have, from time to time, given me much-appreciated feedback thru your comments. My only regret about that is that it doesn't happen more often. Don't be bashful!

In the months ahead, may your water be clear, may your questions be answered, and may you and your trees prosper!
