This is our one thousandth post on this blog.
This means that since the 20th August 2006 Susan and I have shared over a thousand thoughts, because some days we have two thoughts. (Some days I have no thoughts at all, and just post a photo, so it probably evens itself out). The blog was originally intended as an open letter to our families so that they knew what we were doing even if we did forget to tell them individually. Since then it has grown somewhat...
In addition to the thoughts, we have shared 2,392 photos and a number of movies. These have been seen by over 148,000 people (which in itself is a scary thought).

We have learnt a lot from blogging: many of your comments have taught us stuff, or led us to new people and places. We have also met lots of new people and made new friends (who I won't mention by name, just to spare your blushes, but you know who you are), as well as a number of very kind and helpful people in Preuilly itself: some French, some English, but all who seem to be pleased we are writing about their town.
