Web Traffic On Our Sites
Mood:  special
Despite the downgrade on some of our websites at Google, we still managed 14246 page views from Dec/13/03 to Jan/13/04. Doing the math, that's over 450 page views a day. Thanks for visiting our sites and thanks for participating in the "Global Village" of "The World Wide Web" as conceived by its founder Tim Berners-Lee.

More On Google Search Results
Apparently, Google has gone more commercial with its search engine. Buying "Adwords" or "Adsense" seem to determine how high one is placed in the search engine results. Before this new policy, "The Angel At Hotel California" placed ninth with regards to a "Hotel California" search. Now, the webpage is relegated to page three in "The Google Directory."

Hits on my angel website have dived because of this change favouring big businesses.

Despite this setback, I will continue to promote Hotel California/Area 53 in as many ways as I can. I still believe that the web can empower the underdog who has something passionate to say about life or his experiences. What do you think?

The Mousetrap Closes In Toronto
The longest running play in North America will close on Thursday/15/2004 after 8500 performances. The same Agatha Christie play has also been running in London England since 1952 for more than 21,000 performance. Other long running crime mystery plays in North American are "Sheer Madness" in Boston(over 10,000 performances)and "The Perfect Crime" in New York(over 6,900 performances)

Without a doubt, the mystery crime genre is very popular with all kinds of audiences. Our screenplay shares many of the quirky mysteries of the above thrillers with some weird ones of its own.

Mysteries and whodunits are fun, so have an interesting experience solving the mysteries in the above plays and Hotel California/Area 53. Who knows where the adventure will take you.

Tripod And Google Update
Our webpages can now be edited with Netscape. This was communicated to me(Dave Barron)a few days ago after a month of complaints to Tripod support.

Google seems to have changed its ranking system to those who pay for the service. Most of our sites are lower in ranking because we don't pay Google to advertise with them. However, "The Barron Blog" is still number one, mostly, because I'm the only Barron in the world with a weblog called The Barron Blog.

The Founder Of "The Web" Is Knighted
Mood:  bright
Tim Berners-Lee is hardly a household name, but he deserves our recognition. He's the person who invented "The World Wide Web." Read what he said about the Internet in 1989:

"Suppose all the information stored on computers everywhere were linked, I thought," Berners-Lee wrote in his 1999 memoir, Weaving the Web. "Suppose I could program my computer to create a space in which every computer at CERN, and on the planet, would be available to me and to anyone else. There would be a single, global information space."

Mr. Berners-Lee never profited from his cyberspace invention. He wanted to create a global village for the good of mankind.

Starting The New Year On The Right Foot
I wish you a day of ordinary miracles-
A fresh pot of coffee you didn't have to make yourself. An unexpected phone call from an old friend. Green stoplights on your way to work or shop. I wish you a day of little things to rejoice in...The fastest line at the grocery store. A good sing along song on the radio. Your keys right where you look. I wish you a day of Peace, Happiness and Joy.



Another Happy New Year's Message

An Unforgettable Cribbage Game
Mood:  happy
On the day before his birthday, my brother-in-law and partner received a 28 hand to win our second and final game against our wives. This is the first time that I've seen this hand. My brother-in-law(Joe Noseworthy)who is turning 60 tomorrow has only seen these hands three times in a lifetime. One can go three or four lifetimes without experiencing a perfect 29 hand, so I'm not waiting around until then to report a great cribbage hand.

Only God can deliver perfection, but may I wish you seven or eight 28 hands in very big games where you come from behind and win.
