A million thanks to you

Dear Friends,

As that Pilita Corrales ditty from the 1970s went:  “A million thanks to you…”  A million thanks to you indeed, for today “Remembrance of Things Awry” — http://www.remembranceofthingsawry.wordpress.com — reached the 1,000,000 hits mark since starting in August 2006 [ 1,000,402 hits — not counting me — as of 8:00 p.m. ].  I know it’s “peanuts” compared to the great Filipino blogs which already have millions of hits.  But then, we all know this blog isn’t for everyone, right?

A Million Thanks to All of You!!!  And of course, a million thanks to wordpress.com, the blog host.

Now, are you ready for the “Toto Gonzalez Show” on the Net???  Hahahah.


Toto Gonzalez   😀   😀   😀

    Congratulations Toto.

    I’ve always loved your blog. Your anecdotes and footnotes on our country’s leading and not so leading citizens are quite entertaining and amusing.

    You should save/catalogue some of your recollections and produce a book of some sorts. A contemporary…

    “Recollections of Manila and environs”

    I am sure it will be well received.

    …but this 2010
    would surely be more fun
    and interesting indeed

    controversies here and there
    mud slinging back and front
    for both tra-pos and wanna-be actors-turned-politicians
    will take their Oath of Office

    cannot wait until those come out
    in this stupendous blog
    for not even Gregorio Zaide
    would dare write these stories in his history books

    May Our Creator spare the future generation
    Happy Christmas Everyone –
    May we all be then…CHEERS!

    AS 2009 ends, a year lived dangerously, it is such a treat for this blog to pile on COMEDIC relief, re-living times that were truly hilarious.

    GOD bless the Christmas Season of TOTO and all visitors of this INCREDIBLE, LOVABLE Blog.

    Christ the Savior is born again. YEAH!

    Congratulations Toto. Good things last indeed. Your blog is a great source of information, entertainment, and good humor. It is also amazing how it connected some people and bound them in friendship. Of course there were some negligible extras, but all together a certain group of people love your blog. Long Live and MABUHAY!
