Blog View Stats for January

Once again it is time to take our monthly look at the Blog View Stats, and once again Webstat stopped counting somewhere on January 30 as the site exceeded 20,000 page views for the month. I have made a couple changes to the stats, the usual file stats remain, but no longer take Samuel’s Persiflage into account, that has it’s own category now. I have also noticed the bandwidth stats provided by my webhosting company and will be including them on a monthly basis.

The Webstat reports for January can be found here

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

This week’s award goes to Ferlin Husky, and the feature song is “The Wings Of A Dove”, this song has a very uplifting feeling to it, and nobody sings it quite the way Ferlin does.

On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
a sign from above
on the wings of a dove

When troubles surround us, when evils come,
the body grows weak, the spirit grows numb
when these things beset us, He doesn’t forget us
He sends down His love
on the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
a sign from above
on the wings of a dove

When Noah had drifted, on the flood many days
he searched for land, in various ways
troubles, he had some, but wasn’t forgotten
He sent him His love
On the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
a sign from above
on the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
a sign from above
on the wings of a dove

On the wings of a dove
wings of a dove

On the wings of a dove
wings of a dove

Dream Of Cats

Ah yes, I had another strange dream, this one contained cats.

For one reason or another I was inspecting an apartment at the Bega Flats (for those of you unfamiliar with Inner North Canberra’s public housing facilities, the Bega Flats aren’t exactly what you would describe as prestigious), however this wasn’t a standard apartment for the area, instead of being small and old, it was new, huge and shiny. It had a phone in every room, and they all connected to a big black box on the wall of the kitchen (with sticky tape and wires like a power cord…).

I started looking through the rest of the apartment and walked through a large lounge room which was followed by a large open room with a pool table and a lot of open space, around the corner was a large table and three small cats (they looked more like ferrets than cats, but not to worry.)

I approached the cats and they came over to me, I gave them some attention, but the third one stayed back, I went over and picked it up but it didn’t like that so I put it down again…suddenly they cats started creeping towards me in a vicious manner, I backed off into the room with the pool table, the cats continued to follow me, the third cat caught up to me and bit my hand between my thumb and my forefinger. I could feel the pain and woke up to a stinging sensation where the bite had occured in the dream.
