2012 in review, Thank-you to All of you Who Have Visited and Become Good Friends!!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 65,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Blog of the Year, 2012






This morning I awoke to find this nice surprise waiting in my email box. My friend had nominated me for the Blog of the Year, 2012. Viveka is the one who nominated me. You can find her blog here:


I like Viveka from the very first time I found her. She is a chef, and I have to admit she is a fabulous chef. She has taught me many things about cooking, and how to make great foods with little effort. Viveka and I spend many times visiting with each other, and I have come to adore her and her blog.

Here are the rules – and they are not mine.

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award
2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.
3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
5 You can now also join our Facebook page – click the link here ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Award and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience
6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…
