what began as post #1 in may of 2012
has led to post #2001 today.
thank you to all who
view, read, comment, chat, post, and share.
i appreciate each and every one of you
even in those far away countries
where i may have only 1 loyal reader
you have all offered me
much food for thought
and most of all
wonderful human connections.
here’s to the next 2001.
“i think statistics go in one ear and out the other.
all of us respond to stories more than numbers.”

September 24th: National Punctuation Day
* “A celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotation marks,
and other proper uses of periods, semicolons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”
National Punctuation Day gives you the opportunity
to dress up your sentences with all kinds of context and accentuation!
Or, take the day to remind yourself what a semicolon actually does.
‘i’m tired of wasting letters when punctuation will do, period.’
*(i may not be qualified to celebrate this holiday,
as i endlessly abuse this system of grammatical organization.)
