Dear North Americans,
Thanks for visiting, sharing and contacting me for the past few years!!!
Some years ago, i assumed that the most interested persons were from Australia.
I was wrong.
My Blog counts
MORE THAN TWICE AS MUCH
visitors from North American as from Australia.
I would never have thought that way.
