16TH BLOGIVERSARY!

 Well, despite a decline in posts in 2022 I've now made it to the 16th anniversary of this blog! I will admit that there times this past year when I considered "blog retiring" but I decided to keep on going despite my frustration with Windows 11 and trying to master my newest laptop. Not to mention this latest version of Blogger.

The 2022 all time statswere:

I only had 27 posts for the year, which is my all time low.

Hopefully this year will be much better. Thanks to all those who've read this blog over the years.
