And there goes another month: August 2016

First, I was chuffed by the comment on yesterday’s post from Lorelle Van Fossen.

You have some wonderful folks on your blogroll, and the blogroll works better when you do what you’ve done, highlight these people in posts, which generates trackbacks, which brought me to you, and helps people discover these great wonders lost in a long list without meaning nor organization.

Second, a photoblog recycle from September 2009. Remember this day? The photos were taken in Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills, where I was living at the time.

Finally, the stats for August 2016.

This month had one of the busiest days for quite a while, 80 views on 24 August, thanks to the SBHS Class of 1986! Otherwise the now normal 40-41 a day goes on.
