Crunchy numbers

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 18,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

  1. I’m jealous…
    That “Crunchy Numbers” thing is AWESOME!!! Blogger SUCKS!!

    I wan’t my money back!!! (I know I know…Blogger is free…but I still wanna refund!!!)

    Congrats bro! The site is growing!! Keep working and tweaking it to perfection. Slowly…like a glacier. Since being a Dad is about to Happily vacuum every extra second of your life 🙂

    Happy 2012!!

    And WordPress is awesome!!!

    • I really do like WordPress 🙂 Thanks, Chris! My time will be sucked up, but I do plan to work hard to get this blog bigger and better. I have plans! We’ll see how it goes 🙂

      • Man…
        Sleep is just gonna be a word to you soon. You’ll never get any but you’ll remember what it means 😉 Maybe…sleep deprivation can cause memory loss 🙂

        • I’ve already had practice. We have an old dog who has to go outside a couple times every night. Weak bladder.

        • Sleep? What the hell is that? I remember a time, back in the old days, when I used to sleep. Then along came a rugrat (or two) and stole the concept right away from me. 🙂 Wouldn’t change to for the world though!

          • Sleep has been an interesting concept for me lately. Waking up in the middle of the night to take the dog out has resulted in me feeling grumpy and extremely reluctant to get out of bed. The main reason is that it’s cold. We turn the heater off at night. Oh, how I’d love it if Japan would just start using central heating!
