Well,This Is Just Embarrassing…

December 1, 2007

Someone was 10K.  Someone should be doing a happy dance right now.  Someone should be sending me their size (in a confidential email) for a t-shirt.  Someone is missing out.

 Here is what I think happened:  WordPress failed us.  It appears that this blogging software, as much as I like it, has a terrible hit counter.  It stores up the hits and then posts them in clumps.  This appeared to be my experience last night.  Had I known, I never would have offered the Tshirt/mug in this manner.

This would have had the blessed advantage of saving you frustration, precious time and the ink on your F5 key.  Now I will make it right.

Here is what we will do…  I am going to pick a number between 1 and 200.  I will tell it to my son Jerry, a trustworthy 11 year old and the only other one up at 6:30 on a Saturday.   Well, grandpa is up too, but he is a visitor and a distant enough relative that he may have a shot at this here mug.

You, faithful reader, please put your guess in the comment section and the closest one to the number (already told to Jerry, the vault, Stout) will win this fabulous prize.  I will leave this open until I close it.  Please, one guess per person and if there is a duplicate number guessed, the first guesser is the favored one.  So, pay attention to the other guesses.  May providence shine upon you.

OK… Who Was It?

November 30, 2007

Someone hit the 10K mark… Was it you?

Soon and Very Soon…

November 29, 2007

… we will reach the 10K mark.  (I think Saturday but who knows).   Whoever sends me proof of the 10Kth hit gets the T-shirt or Mug.  My wife is hoping that you are too unobservant to actually send me that number.  I have a much higher opinion of your surfing skills.

5000 and Ticking (or Tic-ing)

July 17, 2007

I moved this to the top of the Blog, using some mad skills – al sends

Sometime today one of you will be the 5000th visitor to the site…  Do me a favor and take a screen capture of the site counter below the blogroll and send it to me.  If you do that I will send you something cool (by my definition). 

 If you miss the 5000th I will take 5001, 5002 etc…  Basically whoever is the closest to 5000 after we reach that mark, send me the screen cap. and you will get what is probably the best present ever (again by my definition). 

 (Don’t just sit there hitting refresh or F5 all day… Do something constructive for the Kingdom.)

 In Christ
