The WordPress.com statistics monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog. With a total of 22,599 views from 13,765 visitors in 137 countries in 2015 and with 1,857 followers so far, I cannot be any happier. Writing and posting has been slow the last few months, but I will be back soon enough with new, hopefully inspiring and helpful content. Thank you each … Read More Whát?! 2015 in review!

I want to thank Sheen for being such a great blogger and nice commentator, Sheen is still grieving the loss of … Read More Two more awards!
