We've had a minor milestone here at Connecticut Bob.

Last night our website visit total hit the 200,000 mark. Wow!

I started this silly little blog back in April after Joyce and I saw Ned speak at the now-legendary Naples Pizza appearance. (CT Blogger still has the video of that night, and a short clip appeared in a Lamont commercial recently)

Walking back to our car after that appearance and speaking to Ned, we both decided we were going to support his campaign.

Little did I know where it was going to lead!

So here we are today, with a blog that people seem to enjoy. I've got an amazing blogging partner in Kirby, who adds a lot here, and I've got a ton of new friends because of this.

And hopefully, in roughly two weeks time, we'll have a new senator to celebrate with.

That would make all this work seem very worthwhile. And, finally...

Thank you for visiting!

Bob, Kirby, et al. Congratulations! What a great picture. And thanks for all the hard work you all do to keep us informed and be a persistent thorn in Lieberman's side.

Congrats Bob!

Naples--though the pizza wasn't stellar--will always be hallowed ground in local blogsylvania. At least as far as I'm concerned.

And I should retire the red sweatshirt, but I think you'd rather just burn it.

And speaking of apparel, if anyone knows where I can find a red helmet, a la the spazeboy avatar, let me know.

Congratulations! I hope you'll keep blogging no matter what happens on Nov 7. I remember that after Nov 04, I was stunned, depressed--turned to the blogs for comfort and guidance. Hopefully we'll all be celebrating this year, but, remember we need you no matter what happens.

mvd, thanks. I don't really want to think about what will happen if we don't have Sen. Ned on Nov 8th...

...but we'll probably still be around in any case.

I fucking HATE that I've caught the political bug!

gchaucer2, thanks also. I really find it hard to believe that anyone would want to read some of the crap I write here; but then again, I find it amazing that anyone watches shit like Fox News! LOL!

Spazeboy, I'm sure one of those motorcycle helmets with the molded chin guard would be perfect! Some red spray paint, and you're all set! Put out a call for a used helmet like that, and you can modify it as needed. And yes, keep the red sweatshirt! Joyce would like to see it again.

Bob and Kirby..
I join the others in thanking you for your blog...for someone like me
that lives north of Boston, but has ties to CT in my family, your blog
has made it seem that I have been at many of the events that Ned has had.
You have made me feel like I am a real part of his campaign. Our friends
Jane and Christy are the ones that got me to know New and it has been a
real pleasure. I only wish I could jump in my car and drop in on all of you,
but it would be a 2-3 hour drive to be with the Connecticut group!! Just the
same, this entire group has been wonderful and I feel very comfortable with
all of you. Some day I may make it down there and meet you all.

My prayers and thoughts are with Ned and the CT bloggers and voters for the
next week or so...I agree with what you said above...Ned has to win and I am
keeping my fingers crossed. You can be sure that election night I will be
glued to this computer geared into CT and watching and reading all I can find.

My best to all of you and again, Congratulations on your wonderful success with
the blog!!
