I’m a big of a tinker-er when it comes to this website. I tweeted this the other day: “Can’t stay the way the website looks lately… might be time for a refresh.” Lo and behold a few days later we’ve got a new look and feel – hope you like it! In any case, I was flipping through the site and realized I’d never done our yearly ‘Best of the Year’ post for 2019. We’re well into the year and I don’t want to get too far downstream so here goes… I’m always interested to see what content our readers are interested in. In 2019 we managed 98 posts which was down from a whopping 119 in 2018! We’re out of the gate quickly here in 2020 as this is already #23 and there’s a lot more where that came from. Rest assured we’re not going anywhere. Stay tuned to the site and social media for all the latest.
And with that…
