‘Million Hit’ Day


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 12 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 12 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and write about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 12 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I’ve just past one million hits for the year-to-date: That happened in March last year, July in 2006, November in 2005, and not at all in 2004. Given the relative paucity of new posts this year, the archive must be driving much of the growth – which is great news.

Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.
Paco is my 12 year old dog.
He is my fur son.
My constant companion, he goes for help if I get a low blood sugar attack (from my diabetes) and stays by my side until I am helped.
My wife has even taught him to nag me when she is not home and able to.
Come nine P.M. if I am still at the computer or reading a book. Paco comes into my home office and growels at me until I get up and come to bed.
If I try to go outside in bad weather he blocks the door per my wife’s instructions.
I think if I brought a babe in he would bite her boob.
You can guess what he would bite on me.
Paco is a kind, honourable dog.
But in Argentina, Paco is a bad street drug.
It is a disgrace to have something like that named the same as my dog.
Paco and I are able to communicate-that’s how close we are.
I asked him how he felt about a street narcotic using his good name.
“I would not even wish that on a CAT,” was his reply.
