Feedback ...

Silent surfers of the internet ...

I do not hear from many of you, yet increasingly you like to watch what I am up to ...

Especially on a Friday, when those last few hours drag by before the weekend. Then thoughts turn to a green island far away. The boss and everyone else are searching the web, rather than working, as the clock heads slowly towards 5pm.

It made me wonder what you were looking for, when you arrive here ...

So as the boss is looking the other way, via Google, Bing and the androids (Other search engines are available) when those fingers get itchy, and clammy hands search out for news from the 'Oasis in the aegean'

Deep within the Blogger database it has a history of the search requests. So as the rain falls steadily, out of lead coloured skies over Skiathos, I thought we would take a look at what you are searching for - via our all seeing eye of our friend Hal 9000...

HAL 9000
It seems Express Santorini, is one of the most popular search requests, leading you here. Then 'Skiathian'. A fair way ahead of the Lady Gaga fans, then 'The Skiathian' - One half of our favourite summer island visitors Kurt Russell. Then my lovely friends, at Grill House Koziakis.

... and he is going to love this in seventh place - Our Mayor Mr Plomaritis

Not long until the election, but you can feel a tidal wave of support growing ...

So if you are not sure how to find the blog then bookmark http://skiathian.blogspot.gr/
Or to the right of the page below the weather, is a link to follow by email and get The Skiathian delivered to your mail box ...

Now off to throw another log into the mighty woodburner - its damp and a bit nippy, than of late. Outside, two cats are fighting over territorial rights of the rubbish bins. No change there then ...
