Just a little note to mark a couple of statistical milestones.

Since the site moved over to this address at the end of June, we have now had over 50,000 visits. That is tiny compared to some of the big American blogs but shows a steadily growing readership.

Just as, if not more, importantly we have now passed 3,000 comments made by readers on the various topics under discussion.

Thanks for your interest and support and as always any suggestion on how to improve the blog, make it more user-friendly, better-designed etc are always welcome.
