This is my 3000th post here at the Sandpit, isn’t it amazing just how quickly this milestone has come around?
I like to think that this blog functions at many different levels and its contents is as varied as life itself .
Its primary purpose has always been to keep me entertained and to give purpose to my morning cruise through the daily news reports and blog updates , to that end I like to write about the issue de jour that has taken my fancy as I sip on my first brew for the day. Of course I have also shared some of the events that happen in my own life when I have thought them notable enough and I have tried to do that with a little bit of wit and my rather wry sense of humour.
So for the next three thousand posts I hope to continue to provoke and stimulate thought and words from you, my dear readers, even if those thoughts and words are entirely focused on telling me that I have got it wrong in the most fundamental ways! Sometimes I even get feedback affirming that what I have said is correct, frankly either response pleases me though naturally the later has a somewhat sweeter effect on the palette.
