Reviewing the Latest Stats from Our Website,

I just went over the stats for and the State of Wisconsin is one of the states that averages more pages per visit than most other states. I guess they really like my CHEESY jokes. Okay, some of you might not get that but the people in Wisconsin will. They understand cheddar better.

The state that averages the most pages per visit out of all 50 states is Delaware with an average of 13.82 pages per visit.  My home state of New Jersey is in 2nd place with an average of 11.03 pages per visit. Not too shabby there Jersey! Or, as some like to say: "Joisey."

The worst states regarding the average number of pages per visit out of all of the states in the U.S. is a three way tie and they are: Alaska, Vermont and Hawaii, with an average of one page per visit. I guess they see that fist page and haul ass out of the site. Sorry you aren't finding what you are looking for. You must not like cheese. Lactose intolerant maybe?

The top five states for overall traffic are in the following order: California, Texas, New Jersey, New York and Florida. the bottom five are: Hawaii, South Dakota, Vermont, North Dakota and Iowa. the people in Hawaii must really hate us because not only do we get very little traffic from them, they pretty much leave right away once they get there. maybe it's the really nice weather. It's just too nice to want to sit inside all day and surf the Net.

The most popular features on the site are the Guitar Lessons and the Mandolin Lessons. Then the Poetry section.

On the international level, we received traffic from 105 different countries. Most of the traffic obviously comes from the United States. But after the U.S. the next five are: Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, India and Sweden. Slovakia and Serbia are tied for the highest average number of pages per visit at 10. I Can't figure out why that is but thanks anyway.

Anyway, in case you were wondering as to where we get our traffic from and what they like or do, you now know a little bit more about us. we hope you have found it somewhat interesting.

Little Known Facts: Volume One - Charles Darwin's Inbred Family.

Many people don't know that Charles Darwin had actually married his first cousin. Well, he did. Charles married his first cousin, Emma Wedgewood.  So apparently, he was not completely opposed to the idea of wedging his wood into a cousin.  In fact, he had 10 inbred children with good old Wedgie. Funny how someone with such "evolved" thinking would have his wife in a constant state of being barefoot and pregnant.

Darwin was best known for establishing that all species of life had descended over time from common ancestors. Apparently his ancestors were a little more common than most people's ancestors. You know, since they married within the family and all. Who knows how many generations of inbred Darwins there were.

We could only hope, though, that the tradition of marrying their cousins eventually would EVOLVE into the practice of actually marrying someone outside of the family; even if only on an occasional basis. You know, just to sort of dilute the overall percentage of inbred-ification. But in spite of the inbreeding, there have been no reports of Darwin having chewed tobacky, having square danced or having played the banjo.

Charles Robert Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England, on February 12, 1809 at his family home, The Mount. Funny name for a home but it pretty much went with the theme that they liked to mount each other, regardless as to how closely they were related. Darwin was the fifth of six children, so they obviously mounted each other quite frequently up there on that mount. And, with having 10 children of his own, it was also quite obvious that he wanted to continue on with that tradition. Oh yeah, there were a lot of crazy shenanigans going on in those days up in them thar hills.
