First, I'd like to voice appreciation for Simon, a fellow in the UK who has recently launched a blog, Two Red Paperclips. He's allowing me to rent a spot on his blog for the week. I'm sure most of you are aware of the One Red Paperclip project by Kyle MacDonald (currently traded up to an afternoon with Alice Cooper) which Simon hopes to emulate. Good luck, Simon.
I also wanted to share a statistic for which I'm grateful. Visits to Tor's Rants have been steadily on the climb over the last few months. Thanks for the visits, the interaction, and the return visits.
