Keeping up with Farrah Gray

Not a week passes that I don't see searches for "Farrah Gray" among my referrals. Previous posts, one of which was published in June, 2005, still float up in Google searches and get hit weekly. This blog doesn't get a lot of traffic, about 150 daily, but according to Sitemeter that post has received 19 percent of the traffic! I don't know what he's up to, but Farrah Gray must still be stirring the pudding somewhere to be getting attention.

I see he has a Wikipedia entry and his home page is geing kept up to date, and this truned up in a Google News search.
