    the latest roll-out from Google has resulted in a plethora of blue arrows on my stats page.

    I always knew when the UK one hit I would be badly affected as  my traffic often came from their as well as the USA.

    Good news is I have always wanted a reason to use the word plethora, the blues it is though.

    Well I suppose no point in staying in writing, I am off to grow something I can eat.

    Yeah, I agree with joy56...why do you write? Probably not for traffic on your hubs, but because you like to. keep writing for the fun of it, and because it makes you happy.

    Your title asked for it! So you got it! smile

    Don't wish it away
    Don't look at it like it's forever
    Between you and me I could honestly say
    That things can only get better

    And while I'm away
    Dust out the demons inside
    And it won't be long before you and me run
    To the place in our hearts where we hide

    And I guess that's why they call it the blues
    Time on my hands could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children, living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that's why they call it the blues

    Just stare into space
    Picture my face in your hands
    Live for each second without hesitation
    And never forget I'm your man

    Wait on me girl
    Cry in the night if it helps
    But more than ever I simply love you
    More than I love life itself

    smile smile smile

    Hi paradigmsearch
    You have managed to make me smile about this.  I think Blutac would work well. smile

    Thanks to all for your replies. smile smile smile

    In fact I think long term good may come from spending less time putting together hubs. As I am now spending time improving other skills. Spending time on my paintings, which was something I had abandoned. I am also busy putting together new blogs on subjects I enjoy. Next step, hopefully is too learn how to make my own web site.

    Thanks for sharing the song.
