MY MOST POPULAR POSTINGS FOR 2012

The following postings were the most visited this year.  Not quite sure what those numbers to the left actually represent (the higher the number, the more popular), as my daily average this year is close to 400 links, about half new visitors each time.  I also am still not sure which subject is the most popular, as my renewable energy ones sometimes do well, but usually don't.  People seem to like whale sharks, trivia, my travels and restaurants, flowers and general entertainment.  There is not much interest in global warming and the environment.  The total pageviews are up past 400,000, and 209 countries have visited.  

How's this for exotic locations?  The following sites have visited for the first time these past few days:

December 21, 2012 Tirana,  Albania First visit from Tirana!
