On Monday I noticed that my usual blog audience went up a bit. From, oh, 30 or 40 bemused eccentrics to over 6000 readers.
This of course is a true sign not of the Apocalypse, but of the Instalanche. http://www.instapundit.com/ is one of the more widely read blogs in this quadrant of the galaxy, and if Professor Reynolds takes a shine to you and lays down a link, well, you get a lot of people wondering what the fuss was all about.
Why Reynolds, aka The Blogfather, found Mordor slugs worthy of recognition is difficult to say.
Well, when thousands of unexpected house guests turn up you quickly run to the cupboards and lay out a few bowls of potato chips for them. Hence a little extra posting this week.
But next week back to Monday/Wednesday/Friday.
Special treat next week if you like dubious archeology.....three posts on "The Lost Roman Province of Occidentia", the peculiar tale of Roman artifacts "found" in the Americas.
Cheers, and belated greetings to the Instapundit Legion.
