Curiosity Killed the Cat ...
... and I'm rather hoping that some sort of satisfaction might resurrect the poor little fella from the dearly departed. However in order to do that I am going to need the help of you, dear readers.
Some of you may have noticed that I have a stat counter located at the bottom of this page and I've discovered it's a nice little gizmo to have. Not only does it keep count of how many page hits I have but it's got some cool little features that tell me where those page hits are coming from, how long they last, etc., etc. It gives me comfort to know that I'm not just writing to myself but that there are people out there actually reading my babblings - other than those of you who are nice enough to leave comments, that is!
The fascinating thing is that I have page-loads from far-off places like Indonesia, Australia, Poland, and Wales - places not so far off like Virginia, Mississippi, Texas, Massachusetts, and Canada - and a good number of towns here in Connecticut. But I've got NO idea who those people are that are stopping by for a visit and I have become curious like any good hostess would!
To that end, I have installed another little nifty feature on the sidebar of my page under the "Links" section - a guestbook!! I thought it would be nice to offer an alternative to leaving an actual comment to one of my posts by giving people a place to stop by and say 'hey' and any other comment they'd like to make. Please be nice, though, I actually do have feelings despite what my ex might claim and a recent cardiac ultrasound proves I have a heart also - so there!
The guestbook would also be a great place for someone to leave a suggestion for a future post if they had a thought for one. No doubt there are lots of single parents out there just like myself struggling to get through life with their sanity intact and I'd love to hear from you. As a matter of fact, considering I have what could be considered no social life whatsoever this could be the equivalent of my going to a local watering hole and chatting with folks!
So please, be my guest and click on the icon to the right and drop me a line or two - let me know where you're from, how you got here, and what you think. It would be a pleasure to "meet" you!
