By the way, Jan, your comment above was the 3000th on this blog. (Counting one that Mike later deleted, that is.)

Mike Backhouse said...

Geoff, I presume you mean Louise and not Jan. Speaking of Jan, I hope she is ok. As for the 3000th comment, does it come with a trophy?

Geoff Bailey said...

*headdesks* Yes, I meant Louise. Apologies, Louise -- I was searching through a lot of old comments just prior to making that comment, and got confused.

Mike: Thanks for catching that, and no trophy, I'm afraid. Just the knowledge of a commenting job well done. Or something. *chuckles*

I've no direct knowledge of how Jan is doing.
