Phicklephilly Reaches 200,000 Page Views!

Thanks to everyone who subscribes, reads, likes, comments and shares my blog! We’ve really been killing it lately!

We’re not publishing as often as we once did, but the traffic numbers keep rising month after month. During this dreadful pandemic, I’ve tried to bring some new varied content to the site. It’s pretty hard to go out and date during these unsure times, so I’ve turned inward and written some stories from my past.

I hope you enjoy them and I’ll try to crank out a few new ones each month until we get back in the groove again.

To give you an idea of our growth, we had 42K page views last year. This year we’ve already had 100k! So more than doubled our page views in less than 10 months. We had our highest month ever in October by reaching over 17k page views!

I appreciate the support from everyone who have come to visit our little dating and relationship site over the years! Thanks to those who’ve been with me for years and also to our newcomers!

Welcome!

I’ll see you at a quarter of a million!

Cheers!

Charles

Tales of Rock: Pete Townshend Says Child Pornography Arrest Saved His Life

The Who guitarist Pete Townshend says his arrest on child pornography charges was the best thing that ever happened to him, as it led him to discover he had cancer.

In 2003, Townshend was arrested for using his credit card to access a website offering child pornography, although no images were downloaded.

Townshend was given a warning and put on the Sex Offenders Register for five years. Townshend had claimed that he was only trying to prove banks were complicit with the child porn industry.

“Just for the record, my arrest was probably one of the best things that ever happened to me. It probably saved my life,” Townshend said during an interview with The Mail.

Townshend said he had kept putting off being checked for bowel cancer after his father died from the hereditary disease.

“I had a cancerous polyp in my bowel,” he says. “While I was waiting for the police to go through my computers, I decided to have that long-postponed colonoscopy. The doctor showed me the polyp. He said, ‘This would have killed you in six months.’ So it sort of saved my life.”
