When one begins something like this, I seriously doubt that one thinks he or she will ever reach that large a number.
The wonders of the Internets apparently have no good way to tell me how many words have been written here.
Or how many pictures have been shown.
Or how many cartoons have appeared.
But the statistics page does tell me that I have written 2,650 posts, as of this one.
And, come to look at it a bit further, it tells me that I have had 374,564 page views to date.
But that's in nearly 9 years, which means it works out to only about 42,000 a year or around 3,400 a month.
And I'm not really sure what a page view is anyway.
It could be someone who actually reads the post.
Or it could be someone who just looks at the title and moves on.
Or it could be someone who got here by accident and moved on without even glancing except to realize it's only a mistake.
So I'm not getting my ego blown up out of shape here.
All I can do is wonder about all of this.
Kind of like . . .
(Thanks to the BRD for sending that to me.)
So, what wisdom do I have for you Gentle Readers on this, the day before Valentine's Day?
Since the day is about love perhaps this quote from the legendary Irishman George Bernard Shaw.
"There is no more sincere love than the love of food."
And that includes chocolate!
