To Be, Or Not To Be?

I am thinking about stopping this blog. It takes up time, that I soon will have less of due to my work hours increasing. I have listed Birthdays, deaths and events for 18 months now and so find that most of the information that I am blogging is being repeated. If you want me to continue please let me know and I'll see what I can do. If not, thanks to those who have read, I hope it was informative and useful to some degree.
