It's been exactly a year since I launched this blog. And what fun it's been. Thanks to my handy traffic counters, I can see that the number of unique visitors has steadily increased--the site now has a healthy group of regulars, and routinely gets a large number of newbie drop-ins, thanks to the magic of search engines. I've received a number of emails from viewers expressing their appreciation for the site, and it's great to know that people out there are finding it useful and informative. My one continuing disappointment is the near-total lack of comments--for a bunch of New Yorkers, you all are very shy about expressing your opinion. But so be it... Thanks to everyone for taking a look at the site. As always, any and all feedback and criticism is welcome.
