Well, all month long I've been tracking the hits here... there have been a total of zero. Until today. I looked into it and found that the html script that keeps track of all that data had gotten all messed up when Blogger reinvented itself! So it's not that no one cares - which is what I'd feared.
This means I'll have to start posting again. I'll get right on that.
Hope you've all had a happy holiday!
