Some Interesting Stats

I just discovered that Blogger, the utility (or whatever it is called) that I use to create this blog, has a feature that shows the country of origin of "traffic" on the blog.

This past week my traffic statistics were:

United States            429
Canada                         6
Denmark                      4
Latvia                           2
United Arab Emirates  1
Faroe Islands                1
South Korea                 1
Romania                       1
Taiwan                          1

One of Glenn's cousins lives in Canada, but I don't think she knows about the blog.  So, I don't know who the Canadian is or Canadians are (as for as I know, there is no way to know if that is 6 people, one person who visited six times, or three people who visited two times, etc.)  But, no matter.  Canadians are such nice, polite people, I'm sure I would like him/her/them.

Glenn is Danish, but we don't know anyone who lives in Denmark.   We also don't know anyone who lives in Latvia, but I sure do hope to knit some Latvian-styled mittens some day.

I know someone who is from United Arab Emirates (Hi, Tamara, if that was you!) She lives in San Jose, but might be visiting her family.   We don't know anyone from South Korea although I really like kimchi. And, while the kitchen table we bought in an antique store (even though it wasn't an antique) was made in Romania, we don't know anyone who lives there.  There are probably quite a few things in our house with "Made in Taiwan" printed on them, but we don't know anyone who lives in Taiwan.

And, I've saved the best for last:  The Faroe Islands!  I love what little I have read about the Faroe Islands and hope to some day go there for a long, quiet, relaxing vacation.  I want to knit a Faroese shawl.  And, sit wearing it somewhere on one of the 18 islands in the archipelago.  They have puffins; and they eat them.   I'm not so sure I want to eat one, but I'd like to see one.  And, I'd eat one if I needed to to be polite.  The Faroe Islands!  They sound so beautiful, and remote, and blustery.  I like blustery--the weather and even the word itself.

A visitor from The Faroe Islands!  If you come back, please let me know who you are and how you found my blog! 

So, what does all that have to do with Darby--the subject of this here blog?

Absolutely nothing.
