Rupert the Dinosaur and my 2012 in review

Wishing all my readers and followers a very Happy and Prosperous 2013. I’m afraid I’ve fallen behind quite a lot whilst visiting my lovely family here in New Jersey. We leave tomorrow for our three-day trip back to New Jersey, and on January 12th we have a trip planned to Belize, so I’m sure I’ll find lots to tell you about that.

Yesterday’s visit to the Natural History Museum  in NYC was most enjoyable, and the kids really had a great time. I will post a few more pics in a couple of days, but for now, here is ‘Rupert the Dinosaur’. For some unknown reason, little Max decided that this should be his name. 🙂


Here is my WordPress annual report, just in case any of you are interested to see how I’ve been doing this year. I would like to thank you all for your great support and encouragement. It’s meant such a lot to me, as I started on my WordPress blogging journey in January. At that time, comments were very few, but I persevered, and now I can hardly keep up with the inflow of e-mails. I follow so many blogs, and try my best to visit and comment on a very regular basis, as I find your posts so fascinating. Thanks for entertaining me throughout the year, and keep up the good work. 🙂

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 45,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 10 Film Festivals
