When I first started this little site, I thought that maybe one or two people might occasionally visit (basically, my wife and my kids, and quite possibly under duress).

According to our latest official statistics, I am flabbergasted and flummoxed to see that MORE THAN A MILLION visitors have come here since we started.

Another interesting fact: more than a third of our visitors are from outside the U.S. (where I live), from places such as Argentina, Australia, Barbados, Belarus, Brazil, the Cayman Islands, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Estonia, Fiji, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Kuwait, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Papa New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, Romania, the Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and Venezuela. (Whew. I thought I’d be lucky to reach Sheboygan.)

I’d like to take this opportunity to THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. If you ever have any comments, concerns or suggestions about anything you see here, please feel free to email me at
