I have just spent nearly three days trawling back through my old posts. This version, the publog2 started on the 21st Feb 2007, so, I am coming up to five years of utter drivel, interspersed with a joke each Tuesday.

What I did notice during my trip back in time, was; (a) My posts have become fewer, and (b) The numbers of readers has dropped. This could be explained by two factors. (1) I've become boring, or (2), my subject matter has been mostly centred around the pub and jokes.

I did notice a lot more general content in previous posts. I must start that again!

Some of you will recognize this. I painted this 32 years ago!

Yes, back in 2008, my posts were a little more substantial too. I think it's down to the phenomena of fresh Blogger's first flush! It's staying power that keeps a blog going; I've sort of fizzled and plopped.

I'm relentless, after nearly six years, and have settled to a daily post. I can't remember how long I've followed you, John, but you're stuck with me.

What a delightful painting, it's beautiful.

I have noticed (a), and also (1). I wouldn't go as far as to say that you are boring, but I wish you wouldn't bring those f**king crossword puzzles to the pub; now thats boring!

Thank-you Zed. You're stuck with me to.

I love that. What birds are they?
I find at times difficult to keep up with every body but usually manage to get here weekly.
I have lost a few to Face book but - as the French say tant pis!
