No Door Prize??
Sometime in the last 24 hrs the 1000th subscriber signed onto this blog site. Congratulations, whoever you are! Sorry, but no “door prize” available. 1000 subscribers is, of course, “small beer” in comparison to some other blog-sites, and I don’t want to make more of it than reasonable. But, for this fairly conventional scholar, and for this blog site that essentially serves to provide a “window on my workshop”, it’s an encouraging milestone. I won’t prolong this soliloquy as it would get embarrassing for all to do so. But the continued upward movement in subscriber numbers encourages me to think that this site provides something of interest (and perhaps even of use/value). It’s at least better than a downward trend!
(And, wouldn’t you guess it? Within a couple of minutes of posting the above comments, someone withdrew his/her subscription, bringing the total to 999! That will teach me!)
