Did the brain see what it wanted to? Bet it caught none of you out. If not, ‘happy new year!’ properly. But let’s hope that 2009 is a lot more successful for all of us eh! Mind you I said that about 2008 and it’s been and gone without much positive impact. Never mind. I have fond memories of years ending in 9 so I’m hopeful this is going to be a breakthrough 12 months. And on the subject of numbers we’ve just passed the 75,000th visit to the site, which is staggering. Many thanks to everyone who’s checked in to Pasta Paulie’s postings – unbelievably we’re heading for the 500th on the site. Where on earth did all this ranting and raving come from…? The hosts of critics who said I was full of it were obviously right.
