My top posts from 2013

A little more self indulgence on my part. This February I will reach the 6th anniversary of this blog. I'm nothing if not persistent. Just prior to that, on January 31, I will be retiring. After 40+ years of work, I'm going to take it easy. One of things I'm going to spend more time on is the blog. I've never done anything to try and promote the blog but I may in 2014. I don't have thousands of readers, but I average 90 views per post and I made 127 posts last year. Since I didn't think anyone would be interested in my ravings, that's pretty good. Sometimes, I do a post that gets hundreds of views. So here are my top 10 viewed posts of 2013. If you missed them, here's your second chance.

Random Cards from my Collection #38

Congratulations! I hope these next 30 days fly by, so you can kick up your feet and relax.

By the way... just read your Star Trek review. It's number one on my movie list now.

Happy New Year!
