A QUARTER MILLION HITS
No, this is not how many hits the Beach Boys COULDA,WOULDA OR SHOULDA HAD, but rather the number of hits this site has reached since it's inception.Sometime yesterday, the hit counter passed the 250,000 hit mark. For some sites, this might be a weeks worth of hits, but for us it is a huge accomplishment and for this I want to thank those of you who do take the time to visit it occasionally.
