Happy New Year’s Eve [and 2013 in review]

To all my friends:

Happy New Year’s Eve!

Wishing everyone a beautiful farewell to a year leaving and a very warm welcome to 2014.

May we make it a beautiful and peaceful one…

A big big big thank you to all my friends here at WP.

I am looking forward to another year in your warm company.

A big thank you also to WP without which this wouldn’t have been possible.

and here’s what I received from WP this morning:

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 33,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 12 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
