Terezin also. What are the chances? And the weirdos who stalk you for your own meal preparation has peaked my interest! My biggest search hits for our blog are: Jiggers and SeaFoam Green...

Weird right?

Nope, we're still pregnant! It feels like an eternity is played out waiting for this baby to come, yet women do it all over the world all the time. *sigh*. I will def. do a meme! It may take me a week or two as I have a few posts scheduled right now just in case we have her any day. but I will do it! I lived in Prague itself for five years. It was beautiful (of course)... I went from there to the middle of nowhere Africa. It was quite a shock to the system! Then from there to Texas.. Well. you can imagine the shock. Wow.. that search that led to the deletion of your post just shows the state of brokenness doesn't it?

How I see those numbers, when I'm under posting or layout I click on "My Account" on the top far right. From there I scroll down under "My Products" (you can edit these) and I have "Webmaster Tools". I added these sometime ago and don't remember how- I do know you need to "activate" your blog on there but it is quite easy. Once you've done that- you can click through it's options and it shows numbers, days where you have the highest hits etc. It's just fun though I def. don't check it regularly or even blog regularly. :/ Let me know if that is totally confusing. if it is I can e-mail you with screenshots. Hope you have a great 4th today!
