Our little blog passed a big milestone yesterday — we received our 100,000th unique page view on the blog. ┬áThat may not be much by internet standards, but it’s a little bit humbling to think that our writings and musings have been viewed over 100,000 times. ┬áDon Juan Ortega strongly denies any suggestion that he sits in front of his computer and hits “refresh” over and over.
