TLVD Top Site

To my dear regular visitors. Today I offer you what may, at first glance, appear to be a magic trick:
First, let's take some random, completely unrelated subjects:
(1) a recipe, (2a) (2b) a couple of art activities, (3) a person, and (4) a place.

Within each of these areas, I have chosen a more specific subject upon which I have written a post:

1. Self-crusting Quiche
2a. Graphite tonal drawings.
2b. How to make purple.
3. Ilan Kroo
4. Tauranga beach webcam

Now here comes the amazing bit. If you do a Google search using the words of each of the above five subjects, you should find, in a way that would equally surprise and charm youª, that TLVD is either top of the page or very close to it!

Crow! Crow!*

  1. Not self crusting quiche ma'am! Your upper position appears to have been usurped by commoners!

  2. Oh no! I'm sure that was only 14 minutes of fame! What happened to the other one?
