Between travel and trying to come up to speed on a new computer, I have not uploaded a new video or podcast.  And traffic is dropping like a rock.  Of course, it could also have something to do with it being spring time and we're all nuts about being outside.

As weather is moderating, I'm certain that lots of folks are very busy in the food plots.
Cabin fever probably keeps traffic high during the cold/wet months, but now is the time to get off of our arses and get the gardens jump started.

I have to say I just found this place in the last few days googling my way around Gaia's Garden, and permaculture in general. It is quite the resource. Listening to the podcasts, and getting the books you all talk about sent to me via the library, well the ones I can get sent.

I came in and killed it with my logic. I have killed many a thread and chat discussion with it so I knew it's power. I never thought it would be able to kill an entire message board though. For this I deeply apologize and hang my head in shame.

Spring & summer most internet traffic drops off.

I started to notice a jump in my on line business. When their was a bad storm in the NW states I'd pick up orders.  The SW states is a different story. The storms they get usually are floods and power outages.
Mid states around the hoildays .
Easter states , they are to busy with the most popular news. Lots more whistling gophers looking for a .01c better deal.

  I can see spikes on Thursdays as people look for activities, I.E. a place to shoot. Sunday evening and Monday AM spikes if people were at an event and they have a picture to see or post.

I spend at least an hour a day deleting emails either spam or news. In the last few weeks I've been culling out old forums and dropping my membership in many because it's the same repetive BS.
