And today is September 6, 2015 and totals views are at 22,222





Here it is May 24, 2015 and the number of views appearing on my blog now numbers just over 20,000.  I now ditto the gratitude I expressed when I hit 15,000 back in September 2014.  And out of 67 posts to date the following 10 since last September have been the most popular:

                    1. Dennis Hopper
                    2. QUANTUM APOCALYPSE
                    3. It was not a good day
                    4. Raymond Burr
                    5. ESSO and the Whisk Broom
                    6. My Kidnapper, My Love
                    7. Steve McQueen
                    8. SUPERDOME
                    9. Hit or Miss (1955 - 56)
                  10. Alfred Hitchcock


Why 15,000 you may ask?   Well believe it or not 15,000 is my way of saying thank you.  On Nov 13, 2013 my blog views totaled 10,000.   And now  on September 15, 2014 the total is up to 15,000.  And I owe you  and hundreds of other blog viewers a humble vote of thanks.   And this number does not include my own views or blog maintenance activities.

So gang many many thanks.  And I especially appreciate those of you who have  expressed your feelings with "Likes" and comments (both negative and positive).  Thank heavens 99.99% of your comments have been positive. 


I first launched this blog just over 2 years ago.  I named it MUSTARD SANDWICHES and  I owe my blog inspiration to 4 people:  Bill LaVallee (Read the blog Forward), Peggy Sweeney McDonald (Read the MUSTARD SANDWICHES story), Raymond Cothern and Carol Spruell.  The latter 2, Raymond and Carol, provided the "How to" information and the "push" I needed.   


Two years prior to this blog launch I was posting my stories directly on Facebook.  The only drawback with FB posting was that there was no rich text formatting.  Being able to choose font sizing, italics, bold face and underscoring gives the stories more color, depth and readability.


And after 2 years of blogging I am still a neophyte.  I've not figured out yet how to enable viewers to make comments with each post or why "My blogs" would lend strength to the process.  Or why Google+ would be of value.  I guess I'm just impatient.  Maybe I'll discover value as I go along.

In any event I have discovered value in knowing I have a significant number of MUSTARD SANDWICHES followers to whom I owe a huge debt of gratitude.
