A New Look

Now I’m scared…

In the past few hours I’ve read a bunch of stuff on the Internet about the Superbowl. Unfortunately, what I’ve been reading hasn’t had much to do with the Seahawks or the Mighty Mighty Steelers, but instead people are talking about the chances of our elected government bombing Ford Field during the game.

Let me repeat that.

People are worried that our government will set off a bomb during the game. Here’s one link.

What kind of world do we live in where thoughts like that even cross our minds? And what kind of government do we have where I can read stuff about them bombing American citizens and think, “Oh, geeze – they might actually do something like that.”

I am NOT saying that I think our government would actually bomb the Superbowl. But I am saying that it’s very, VERY sad that our government is so sneaky and greedy that people believe they would. Sad. We have to remember this stuff when we go vote!

New Things

Not being a web-guru type guy, when I started this blog I used a “canned” template. In other words, I took someone else’s design and put my words in it. The template was available through Blogger, so it wasn’t sneaky-plagiarism or anything, but as a graphics guy it bugged me. So, as I’m sure you noticed, I finally changed the look of the blog a bit.

Aesthetically, I changed the powder-blue picture of a lighthouse to a pretty picture of our motorcycle. Then I took out the powder-blue clouds at the top and made the background red. That’s about it, actually. Like I said, I’m not all that web-savvy. I just got tired of feeling, well, a bit feminine whenever I read my own blog.

The other major change is the little bar at the top. You can search my blogs now, and there’s a neat little “next blog” button on the right that will take you to someone else’s randomly chosen blog. (I didn’t do this, it’s something the Blogger people offer. I just pushed the “yes” button.) It’s kind of fun, but I can’t guarantee that if you go to someone else’s blog you won’t be offended. There’s a lot of strange stuff out there. Good stuff, too. Sometimes it’s hard to tell one from the other.

What do you want?

I’ve only had a few people leave comments on my blog, but they seem to be equally distributed between three major categories – funny stuff (like Dagmar’s Operation), political stuff (like my Grassley Rant), and personal stuff (like the time I reminisced). What do you guys wanna read? E-mail me or leave a comment if you have an opinion… (My e-mail address can be found somewhere on my regular website HERE, just in case you don’t already have it.) If you don’t tell me, I’ll just continue rambling and babbling at random.

No one’s ever commented on the photos I toss up on the blog every now and then. I’m gonna keep doing it, though. I like pictures. Especially when they’re pictures of my beloved wife Dagmar playing with the nieces, Peyton and goddaughter Maddie. (Looks like Maddie’s stuffing her hand in Dagmar’s mouth for some reason. Strange kid.)


A nice blog lives HERE. It made me smile. Well, it’s only five or six hours ’till the Superbowl starts. I’d best kick the cat off the couch and reclaim my spot and get all my accoutrements in order (remote, chips, salsa, popcorn, Tootsie-Rolls, lollipops, crackers, phone to call the pizza, etc.). Pre-game started last week already, so in a way I feel like I’ve already watched the game, but the commercials should be good!
