This is so keeping me out of mischief, and look out for those turtles crossing the road!

I just can't get enough of it, I can check it at least half a dozen times a day and it still fascinates me.

What am I talking about.....that Sitemeter thingy I have at the bottom of the blog.

My number one favourite thing is the world map with all the dots on it. I want to thank everyone for visiting. I have visitors from Malta, Vietnam, New Zealand, Africa, Middle East, Poland, India, just to name a few places. I get so excited when there is another dot from a place I haven't seen before.

Then there is the "by referrals" section, and that is such an eye opener. For instance, someone did a google search on "Celine Dion Opening Act," and up pops my blog as an example.......who knew that??? Isn't Google marvelous, I did not know that would happen. Then some poor soul, popped in kidney bean lasagna in Google and up pops my blog for baked bean lasagna..........LOL They must have wondered what on earth had happened!!!!

This one was neat, someone put in "rona sunshade gazebo top" and up popped my blog, I hope my review was helpful? Maybe my blog is doing a public service of sorts?? And here is me thinking I am rambling on about nothing.

There are so many different statistics to look out it can keep you occupied for ages, well it does me.

We went for a ride out in the car today (Saturday) and here are a couple of photos, they were taken from the car:





Isn't that cute, having a warning sign for turtles crossing. I will say its a pretty busy road, and we all know that turtles don't exactly walk with a speed of knots now do they? So I am guessing there must be a pile of squished turtles on the road if they do decide to cross the road.

I thought I saw one yesterday, but on the way home I still didn't know if it was a turtle.

I avoided some this time last year and the steering or something wasn't too good then, and I thought I had better stop doing that.

Last week I saw one, alive and well.

I have a boring site stats, well I like it, but have always wondered which site stats are the interesting ones.

I think that a sitemeter would keep me occupied all day. Too many other things to do at the moment so I had better give one a miss for now.

How do you do the site meter thingy? I have it but it doesn't give me any stats. Sometimes I am absolutely rubbish with some of the gadgets!!

I use Stat Counter instead of Sitemeter, but the addiction is still there. They should call it CrackMeter.

Oh, the sitemeter is fun, isn't it? I rarely even look at mine anymore and forget it's even there. I actually put it there because someone told me it was a good idea. Love your fun print!
