Slow News Day
I sat down to post last night, then decided that watching Season 3 of Hell on Wheels was a much higher priority.
Yes, I feel bad about that.
Actually, the plan was to continue tweaking the stuff over there along the starboard rail of the blog. All I really did was move everything (save my "holiday" badge) aft, behind the "Stuff I Like to Read" list (hereinafter referred to as the SILTR list).
Juvat suggested that move and I pondered it for quite some time. Flew North to the Fortress of Solitude and while ensconced in that glittering palace of ice I ...
Sorry, drifted into fantasy land for a moment. While having a Fortress of Solitude might be neat, I'm betting that heating the place would prove to be problematic.
(If you don't get the reference, let me just say that "Google is your friend" and leave it at that.)
Juvat mentioned that he uses the SILTR list as a jumping off point to get to other blogs he enjoys, I do the same, it's really the reason I created it, lo these many months past.
He also mentioned that it was a big pain to have to scroll down to find that list as I had a bunch of "stuff" new to the top of the blog which really added no value. So it was moved.
Which reminds me, long ago Tuna complained about "having to scroll" to see if there was new content. So I squeezed the header down.
What is it with officers and scrolling? Tsk, I don't know, I'm a simple enlisted man. But when the readers speak, I listen. Most of the time. Well, okay, some of the time.
How many of you know what the picture up there is? (Easy one.) How many know the vantage point from which it was taken? (Still easy but a bit harder.)
I was out there a year ago this week. On the day the photo was taken I was visiting a friend.
Like I said...
Slow news day.
