Over 10,000 hits........

My blog has reached a milestone of sorts....10,000+ hits. As a little girl I grew up on a farm in a small town in Ohio. My world was was very small and the thought of reaching out and writing to people in other countries was unimaginable. When I was in high school I worked at the front desk of a local Holiday Inn. We sent reservations over a teletype. When things were slow I used to send "hello" messages to hotels in foreign countries. I was always so thrilled to hear the teletype start up and get a response back. Even though communication is much easier these days, reaching out across the world hadn't lost its appeal. So I'm celebrating 10,000 hits. The world map gives a breakdown of where these hits are from. Below are those countries that have at least 10 hits and there are 58 other countries in the single digits.

United States 4,064
Canada 333
United Kingdom 181
Australia 67
France 39
South Africa 33
Germany 29
Sweden 21
Belgium 18
Poland 18
Italy 16
Netherlands 15
India 11
Brazil 10
Spain 10
