Hello, 今日は, Selamat pagi, Bonas dies,  Zdravo, Hola, Guten tag, Привет, Hallå, greetings to all!

The new WordPress Stats homepage site shows not just how many, but where your readership comes from.

Holy Trip-Around-the-World!  

The top four countries reading about Wing and a Prayer Farm are the U.S., Australia, Canada & the U.K..  But also there are people in Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Malta, the Russian Federation, Latvia, Panama, Israel and Singapore that are visiting the farm!  And 50 more countries!

I know this should not astound me, but growing up we had to wait a year to watch “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” on the one station at 8p.m. on a school night before Christmas. And in high school I learned data processing with an IBM PDP 11/70 – a computer as big as my house, practically, whereas now we compute with laptops.  We didn’t have  VCR‘s, DVD‘s,  DVR‘s, or the World Wide Web when I was growing up.  Please forgive my naiveté to enjoy the shock and awe of this little farm being read around the world.

Therefore, an official “HELLO!!!”  from Vermont, and thank you for visiting our slice of heaven(with the best maple syrup drizzled on top!) Today we’re having some very gorgeous and spring-like weather.  No lambs yet.  And we’re going to make an attempt to fix our tiller so that perhaps we can work some of the soil a bit, preparing for some tunnel gardens I am going to be making.

This awareness makes me rethink what I should publish and how to make the world a better place.  It is sort of beautiful to think of blogging under those terms now…

Greetings from Wing and a Prayer Farm

And thanks, WordPress, for a very cool feature!

  1. god aften (good evening) from snowy Tromsø in Norway as you already can see 🙂 yes, it is interesting to see where people are coming from, most of my visitors are coming from US 🙂

    • Good afternoon(god ettermiddag) from a sunny, spring day in Vermont! I have even been able to work in my garden today and one of my sheep may deliver a lamb or two this afternoon! I agree, it is really interesting to see where the readers are coming from. I was curious that Australia is reading my blog more than the U.K., but the U.S. is the highest. Thank you for the note and enjoy your beautiful snow!

      • God kveld, here Spring may come in 2-3 months time, in May or June ! but that’s kind life up here. I don’t know if I have told you that on my fathers farm in Denmark many years ago (60ties and 70ties), we had sheep, mostly Texel breed (from the Netherlands) but also Shropshire and a few Oxforddown and we went to fairs and competitions etc. My mother got the wool processed separately at the mill, so we knew it was our “own” yarn she made wonderful sweaters of, so of course I also really enjoy following your blog, feels a kind of going back to my youth ! The good thing is that when I retire in 2 years, I’m going back to our small farmhouse in Denmark and our neighbors have sheep, and now I stop ! good luck with lambing !

    • Thank you, Vince! Some day I would love to see Buenos Aires -so cool to hear from Argentina and thank you again for the good words, good sharing!
