Post 2221 - A Quiet Day

I did almost nothing today.  Well, I made my world-famous French toast and let Patricia eat a couple slices of it.  We watched the first two "Lethal Weapon" movies; hadn't seen them in many a year, and they still hold up.

I took my monthly shower this evening.  I am now clean and serene for the evening.

And, my mother's much more comfortable in the house today.  The furnace works just fine.  Thanks for asking.

 You may have noticed that this post is one more than it should be.  It "should be" post 2220.  That's because a few days ago I messed up the numbering once again.  There were two posts labeled 2216.  The only way I could think of to fix it was to bypass 2220 and go right to 2221.

Which brings me to this: I have been dutifully numbering the blog posts for over 5 years now.  I started this because... well, I am not sure.  I just thought it was nice and neat to  have this continuity stretching back to the first days of this blog.

When I started doing this, I had no idea I would one day reach over 2200 posts, yet here I am, and here I also am still numbering the posts.  I am probably the only blogger in the world who does this, and I wonder if there is any point.

Should I continue numbering each post?  Does it help you find any posts you want to find?  Does it make it any more difficult? Or do you just not pay attention to the blog posts numbering at all?  Or do you chalk it up to an eccentricity of an aging dude who lives in Nova Scotia and seldom gives out his last name?

I am curious to know how you feel about this.  Please let me know via a comment to this post, or on my facebook, or a reply to the tweet that lets you know the post is up, or via an email to radiointerviews AT bevboysblog DOT com.

Give it some thought and get back to me. 

See you tomorrow.

FWIW, I rather like the numbering of posts on the blog, Bev. It allows quick and easy reference to find a post and takes only a moment to do. Sounds like a good trade-off to me. Besides, it's enjoyable to see the (very) occasional error in the numbering! Maybe the 4.7 of us who read you regularly should start a pool as to which number will be missed this year?

Of course, it's your blog so, ultimately, numbering is your call!

Happy New Year!

Thanks, bud. You're the second person to write me and suggest I keep the numbering. So, it's staying!

All the best, my friend.
