First I'd like to welcome my new followers, always good to see your numbers going up; makes it all worth while writing the blog if someone is going to read it. I love to receive comments too, but have noticed that some of you are "nonreply-commenters" which is a real shame as I'd love to thank you personally for your lovely comments. I think its something in your settings so if you'd like a reply from me then check it out. If not, I'll try and find a way round it.
Update to above - you may not know you are an noreply-commenter, so to check out do the following:
Go to your dashboard, click on edit profile, check the box - show my email, then hit save. Hopefully you will then receive lots of replies to your comments
Whilst on the subject of comments and followers I know there are some of you that read my blog on a regular basis but aren't followers. Come on don't be shy, I'd love to know who you are and check out your blogs if you have one.
Whilst I have you, here are the factoid and quote for the day
1954 - The University of Oxford won the 100th Boat Race .......... boo hiss come on Cambridge
Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it must be taken one step at a time
