We recently crossed another blog milestone with 150,000 visitors! We crossed 100,000 back in February 2008 and 50,000 back in April 2007.
We'd like to thank everyone who visited the blog, and hope that they liked what they saw, or at least found it to be interesting and intelligent. We don't create this blog to "attract" traffic, and in fact we shy away from anything that would draw it out of the search engines such as a celebrity name or anything to do with politics (formally).
Dan started this blog and I joined several years ago and Gerry joined us not too long ago. Gerry really has an eye for photography and a great capability as a chef (I would say cook but he is somewhere above cooking and towards being a chef on that spectrum) and has been a great addition.
As always, you can get here a few ways:

The range of topics that this blog covers is quite large, and I often chuckle thinking what someone searching for one topic thinks when they see a totally different topic alongside. Sometimes I am sure that we irk people but we don't care, as long as what we post is intelligent and interesting, and not just re-heated drivel that you'll see elsewhere out there on the web.
Dan and I also cross post at www.Chicagoboyz.net, a great blog run by a friend of ours who has many highly qualified contributors from across the spectrum. We are honored to post over there, as well.
Here's to our next milestone, 200,000 visitors, which we may cross in 2008 or early 2009.
