each year and counting
In English, is there an expression like "each year and counting"? I found it at the end of a sentence, but just couldn't find the entry in the dictionary. If this is a fixed expression, What does it mean?

It is the phrase "…and counting" that is idiomatic. It means that the sequence referred to is expected to continue, or the amount is expected to increase.
