I hope this won't be annoying, but more of a journal or diary about the state of the forum. If it bothers you, you can scroll on by. Now I know I am not Rain Man, or even close, and I know that other people find it unusual when I say things like, "There are 14 dogs here at the dog park now." I am a counter, and everyday I check in to see how many members there are who have registered. I sometimes do it in the morning and later in the day. It is a weird thing I do, going back to when I used to do headcounts at school--how many students are there here, how many on the playground, coming back from somewhere. It also tells me the health or pulse of the forum. I used to do this same thing elsewhere, and sometimes the counts were abysmal. Today, at this time, there are 141 registered members. That includes the administrator, Angie, whom I think has two registrations. If there is anything else that throws the numbers off, please advise me. From what I see, there are 31 active threads today. If there is anything else that reads the pulse, please add it in. If there is anything else ever, please enter it. If I am missing in action, as I have been today due to the internet being down in my area, and you are interested please enter it!
