I transfered about 14 BTC to my receiving address (the address is correct).  The transactions are in block explorer and my client seems to be up to date (currently 8 connections and ~130k blocks).  The block count is increasing ever so slowly.  The receiving addresses are present in my clinet.  Where are my BTC?  Did I lose them?  I'm worried.

Wait for the block count to be up to date.
ATM, it's 144k (exactly).

First off the current block count is 144000 (weird, it is dead on a thousand). Try closing your receiving client and forwarding port 8333 to your receiving client's ip on your router and you should see your connections shoot up to the moon. Then add fallback nodes:
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Fallback_Nodes
Then play the waiting game... Check https://blockexplorer.com/q/getblockcount to see the current block count. No coins will show up until you have all the blocks in your client. Or at least all the blocks up until your transaction occurred.

How big is the blockchain (GB wise)?  Is a new block generated every time a transaction is made.

A block is generated every 10 minutes on average every time a node (pool/solo) miner mines transactions. The amount of transactions per block is really random, so I cant tell you that. My file is about 300mb now with all the blocks downloaded. But it will grow to infinite size over infinite time.

Sorry, that was a long time ago. Let me check again...
I am at 813MB of both blkindex.dat and blk0001.dat so I guess my 300mb was on my laptop about two months ago. Sorry for false info...  Cry
