A very Happy Christmas to all my blogreaders out there. A lot of visitors alight for a few moments like butterflies on a buddleia bush and fly on, never to be glimpsed again. But some return from time to time - and there's a core of loyal visitors who come back regularly, either daily or several times a week. To these especially I'm truly grateful, and feel humbled and amazed that my blog can attract such a committed readership. So to everyone - but particularly to this steadfast core of readers (including 86 Subscribers on Google Reader and 41 Followers on Google Friends) - some of whom comment regularly (for which I'm very grateful) - to everyone out there in Blogland, in the vast reaches of Cyberspace, I wish again a lovely Christmas time.
