To those of my readers in the SCA, Happy New Year! (May 1 starts the SCA calendar. The New Year is the Year of the Society - Anno Societatis - 47).
To ALL of my readers, my thanks. When I started this blog a year ago, I had no idea if anyone would pay any attention to it. I have been very pleasantly surprised (and sometimes, puzzled) by the response to it. As of last evening when I wrote this blog entry, the views of his blog were a tad short of 4300. While I don'y pretend that I'm setting records or anything, I am both pleased and thankful for your views and support, which has come from over 50 nations on six continents. Simply amazing! Thanks to you all.
