In the good old days, Google sent many of their publishers (i.e. ME) really awesome gifts every year around now. The gifts always made me smile. Unfortunately, they decided that they didn't think it was politically correct to send us webmasters goodies anymore because there are millionaires going broke.
Last year, they made a donation in my name... I knew of a hundred better charities, but it was a nice thought.
This year I expect nothing at all, so I will have to count on a new toy they gave me a month ago as my yearly thank you.

Whine, whine... I know, but I do love my new toy! luv
I can now watch TGH and AGF traffic in real time. Almost everything but names and addresses.

I especially watching for odd search terms and their results...
someone searched for "calendar garden" I don't know if they wanted a 'gardening calendar' or a calendar with gardening pictures to print out, but they spent over 2 hours on TGH!

old It doesn't take much to amuse us old garden farts...

I remember we used to have a link you gave us...or me rather...where we could see some of those stats, where they had been before they came on this site, where they went to after, etc. guess that link is in my old computer that i can't get hooked to wifi.

that is a cool toy to have, though a little creepy to think someone is watching what you've been looking at.
