This is sad. JS has had many problems in the past and I guess this is it for them, for now anyway. I guess I should have transferred my old posts from there sooner. Oh well...
Twitter / jsupgrades. I used to blog at journalspace.com but eventually settled on wordpress.com. I was going to move some posts from my old JS blog to here but I see they are having problems. That's not the first time they have had problems which is part of why I settled on wordpress.
Today was the first day back to work after Christmas, and it's a short week too 'cause of New Years. Hell, they should have just called the week off for the hell of it ! Had very little work all day 'til 3:00 pm which is when I normally leave; then someone brought me a … Continue reading monday evening…..
Sweetous is staying the week with Piglette so I am home alone again. I'm a fairly self contained self reliant person; some might even say I was semi-reclusive. I actually don't like being alone though; it can be downright unnerving. In Genesis God said that it was not good for a man to be alone; … Continue reading sunday evening home alone….

The Cult of the Amateur: How blogs, MySpace, YouTube, and the rest of today's user-generated media are destroying our economy, our culture, and our values by Andrew Keen
I'm just taking it easy at home today because I was up late on Friday and Saturday ! I posted some pictures on this site and was also checking out Home - Windows Live. I use Ubuntu at home and I am much to attached to Google to replace them with anything else unless it … Continue reading looking at Windows Live….
Pig added pics to her mySpace, so of course I snatched them to add here....
We're both looking good.....
I had a good day at work; finished transcribing a tape, filed several boxes of old files, and we had our Christmas (or other holiday) luncheon. That was quite a spread: ham, various little sandwiches and a bunch of deserts ! Yum, but I really blew my diet today. After work I went to Best … Continue reading thursday evening…
Goodreads | The Cult of the Amateur: How blogs, MySpace, YouTube, and the rest of today's user-generated media are destroying our economy, our culture, and our values (Paperback) by Andrew Keen - I started reading this yesterday. Keen paints a starkly bleak and dismal picture of internet culture and the decline of civilization. Unfortnately there … Continue reading Goodreads | The Cult of the Amateur: How blogs, MySpace, YouTube….
Some cool pics from my email... Norbert Rosing's striking images of a wild polar bear coming upon his tethered sled dogs in the wilds of Canada's Hudson Bay. The photographer was sure that he was going to see the end of his dogs when the polar bear wandered in. The Polar Bear returned every night … Continue reading some interesting animal pictures….
I'm tired; was busy at work today and walked morning,lunchtime and after work. The evening walk was 60 minutes; so yes, I am tired ! I am also rather annoyed because my tiny computer, not even a month old, will not boot. GRRRR ! I suppose I will have to take it back to Best … Continue reading tuesday evening….
Today was fairly easy at work although tomorrow promises to be rather hectic. I went walking in the morning which was quite enjoyable as it was not cold and was lightly raining. I left early for my appointment with the dietician; that visit was somewhat disappointing because my weight was unchanged from the previous visit. … Continue reading monday evening recap….
YouTube - KTUU 2008 Sarah Palin turkey interview - I guess this was put up on youTube to ridicule or mock Sarah Palin. I watched though and it just made me like her more; she's a real person, not just some contrived political persona.
Car Talk - I'm not a car guy, but I enjoy listening to these guys on NPR. They are hilarious and informative.
Seven: The Deadly Sins and the Beatitudes by Jeff Cook rating: 5 of 5 stars Just finished, excellent book. I took too long reading it though. That's something I need to work on: get a book finished rather than sitting on it.
Some pics I downloaded yesterday from Piglette's mySpace....
Smitty sent me this fable illustrating why the American auto industry is in deep trouble while the Japanese car makers are faring so much better. The premise of the story, top heavy management, seems entirely reasonable to me; although I have no idea whether or not the statistics cited at the end are true or … Continue reading top heavy….
