Thank you to all my regular readers and to everyone who has read even one of my blog posts. It means a lot to me to know that you have taken the time to read my thoughts.
Thank you, also, to everyone who has left a comment. I’m so glad you take the time to do that. This blog allows me to connect with people in a variety of different countries from the comfort of my living room, and you have made my world a much larger place.

(Note: Neighbours Having Sex is the most popular post every year. It’s because it has the word “sex” in the title.)
I try to write eight posts each month and since I managed to write 82 this year (83 with this one) I didn’t quite manage that. On the other hand, just having that guideline gets me writing on days when I don’t think I have anything worth writing about.
Regular readers have stuck with me through home renovations, political frustrations, family challenges, and a road rage incident. I like knowing that you are with me in whatever I am going through, whether it is dull or daring, pedestrian or passionate.
I look forward to sharing more of my thoughts with you in 2018 and to reading more of your comments. I hope you all have a very happy new year.
Love reading your blog posts! Keep ’em coming!
Interesting statistics. Keep your thought coming
I will! Thank you for the encouragement.
HM – maybe I should try sex in a title to increase traffic 😂
I recommend it, at least once. You’ll be amazed.
