I am pleased to report that this blog received its 500th comment the other day.   We are approaching 1000 posts, a milestone that will be reached in June.

This blog began in February 2005.  I truly enjoy writing it and wish I had even more time to devote to it. 

Thank you for your wonderful comments and your words of encouragement.  Please let me know what topics you would like me to cover more frequently and I will do my best to accomodate you.
