Three + years ago, on New Year’s Eve 2008, I pulled the plug on my three co-running web-sites; some of you may remember one or more of them. They had effectively run for many years. The one with the most visitors was “Bill’s Miata”, with over 100,000 visitors. That one and the “Bill’s U.S.M.C.” had frequent contacts of one kind and another, from many different states and countries. Marines just like to be in touch with one another.

One reason that caused me to become interested in web-sites so long ago, was it provided an organized mode with with to “stow & share” my various memorabelia; photos, facts, events and memories. Some of those old “doors” to the past get rusty and finally do close forever. This may be one way for me to “linger” a while longer. A little over three years ago, I tired a-bit on the web-site maintenance and the costs involved. As I tend to do sometimes, I “knee-jerked” them down, all at one time on a New Year’s Eve.

Well, some good ideas don’t die that easily! On January 20, 2009, I reopened them all in a new and free blog format.  Today, is their third anniversary. I think that they still provide the same services as before to me and to others. I’m happy to announce that this one has exceeded a total of 7200 visitors in that time. That’s more than a few every day (nearly 7 per day). These never include my own visits.

Behind it all, is my desire to enhance my own interests in my own eyes; and to linger a while longer.

I enjoy it when you drop by.  Why don’t you linger here awhile too.

Happy birding and carving,   Bill
