Big thanks to all those who check in, either regularly or occasionally and have now taken the blog past the 600,000 visits mark.
Also thanks to those who read the pieces as they are posted on Sportskeeda. Either today or tomorrow the views will pass the quarter million mark, which is humbling, flattering and a great reflection on the worldwide interest in Derbyshire cricket.
Finally, thanks to all of you for your regular comments and e mails, which are appreciated. We don't always agree, but there is a shared desire to see a strong Derbyshire County Cricket Club and it would be a funny old world if we all thought the same way..
This weekend I will start the series of interviews I did with club legend Brian Jackson recently.
I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
