I grew up in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Box Hill South. Although only about 11 miles from the city in the early 60's it was an outer suburb only just being carved out of the orchards that stretched out to the then holiday hamlets in the Dandenongs. But that has nothing to do with this post.
Every couple of days someone visits this blog after doing a google search for "Laurie Joyce blog" or "Laurie Joyce midlife". Coincidentally that person has an IP address of Box Hill. I wonder whether it is the same person each time or a different person from the same area. If it's the same person why don't they just save the blog in their favourites. Maybe the answer is it's not a favourite.
Here's a challenge, introduce yourself.
