   Wonders in the Dark has reached it’s second monumental milestone in the past months that warrants announcing on these pages.  In fact this newest achievement trumps the past one, which was an acknowledgement of the number of posts the site has published since it’s inception In August of 2008.

Today (Saturday, May 26, 2012) the site surpassed two million page views (hits), a statistic that we are all extremely proud of.  So many people are responsible for this staggering figure, one that kept the site on a favored list of places to stop on a regular basis.  Above all it’s the writers and organizers who deserve the most acknowledgement and praise:  Dee Dee, Allan, Jamie Uhler, Maurizio Roca, Jim Clark, Bob Clark,  Jaime Grijalba, Tony d’Ambra, Joel Bocko, Dennis Polifroni and the many close friends, who I have mentioned previously on the thread that honored the total number of posts at Wonders in the Dark.

Thanks to all for enabling us to smile for the second time in three months.
