  1. I tried again to get the date right. I think I had finally gotten the time right, but the day was still wrong. Do the date checkers among my readers finally approve?

  2. Actually I never check the date so it isn’t a problem.

  3. Good grief this blog is getting faaaaar too intellectual for me!! However, I am able to cut and paste!! I can also use spell check! As to Al’s mouse, it would be gone by now if he didn’t have the most worthless (and unfriendly) cat on the face of the earth. Maybe the mouse is her friend!!

  4. I’m not sure ‘intellectual’ is the word you were looking for. However, it is interesting that the lyrics Al quoted were written almost exactly 100 years ago and yet they sort of sound like they were written for today.

    I agree about the cat. If the mouse is her friend it is likely her ONLY friend which is I suppose why she hasn’t eaten it yet.

  5. Tiger has another wine name for you. (He actually read a little of your blog before he got bored. I mentioned that if he had been keeping up all along he would not have had so much to read!!) Anyway…….All That Shiraz!! What do you think??

  6. I don’t know whether I should be flattered (that he read some) or insulted (that he was bored).

    All that Shiraz is good, (or maybe all that Shirazz)? May be a little ‘light in the loafers’ though? I’m torn now though because I have more votes for The Beeatch name, but I’m sort of afraid to use it (the ‘politically correct’ issue). I seem to have too many new suggestions but very few comments on choosing among them and I like them all!

  7. Shouldn’t the newest comments go on top instead of on the bottom???

  8. I have no idea how to do that.

  9. Hi

    Bye

  10. I’m not sure if this is the place for my comment but I really like your new foremat. It looks very nice and is easy to follow.

  11. I think you are right and was beautifully said. She made her death so much easier for me because of her belief. She was so at peace with her death and even welcomed it.

  12. As an NFL fan,I have determined that I am dissatisfied by the way that the NFL ranks defenses. They are ranked simply by yards given up per game. Obviously the team with the lowest number is the best defense. This system, however, does not take into consideration other very important aspects of team defense. I propose a new formula that includes other important factors. (The reverse of this method would probably be a better way to rank offenses too, but we will save that for another day.) My formula involves 4 numbers. A and B are added together and C and D are subtracted. The total number is divided by the number of games played and the resultant number becomes the Defensive Rating. The smaller the number, the better the defense. A is the number of yards allowed on an offensive scoring drive. The point here is to not penalize a defense for yards that did not result in a score. Which is the better defense, the one that only allows 100yds per game or the one that only allows 3 pts per game? Isn’t it much better to give up 80 yds that do not result in a score than to give up a 20 yd td drive? B is the number of points allowed. This is pretty self explanatory. Included are all extra points or 2 point conversions following an offensive td and all field goals following an offensive drive. Note that points scored on special teams, against the offense, or field goals not preceeded by an offensive play do not count as points against the defense. C is a category that is not even included in team defense stats on the NFL website. This is defensive points. Any touchdown or safety is included here. Again, all extra points and 2 pt conversions following a td are included. D is return yards. Return yards, however, are only counted from the initial point of possesion by the opposing offense. Since yards not resulting in points do not count against a defense, they should not be given “extra credit,” so to speak, for return yards unless the int or fumble is actually returned beyond the point where they first took the field. Included in return yards are any defensive stops that result in the opposing offense kicking from behind their initial spot of possesion. This includes fg attempts. For instance, if an offense takes the field at the opposing team’s 10 yd line, losses 10 yds then kicks an fg from the 20, the defense is given credit for 10 return yds. But the still gave up the field goal. That drive would result in -7 points for the defense: 0 yards given up on a scoring drive, +3 points allowed, no points scored, -10 return yards.

  13. THANK YOU so much for the note Carol. My original hope with this blog was to keep in touch with people that I don’t see as often as I’d like. Send a note again sometime.

  14. I’m going to the catersource conference next week in Las Vegas. https://www.catersource.com/index.asp

    I am so looking forward to it. I hope to learn a lot and get my marketing materials together to actually have a productive catering summer.

  15. Fabulous image: https://zsterling.files.wordpress.com/2007/08/paul3edit.jpg. I am writing an online course on radiology for physical therapists. Can I use this image?

  16. I just discovered the category list. That is really helpful. You’re getting better at this all the time.

  17. What’s with the porn comments on your blog?

  18. Word press is usually pretty good at detecting spam and not posting it. I’m not sure how those two got through.

  19. Wow! You have really got this thing looking very professional! Do you have a book yet?? My favorite columnist….Liza Scottine…wrote a book of her columns. So did Dave Barry. I’m always wanted a family member to write a book and at least mention my name!! My thesis is the closest I’ll ever get to publication!!

  20. Seems every time I return to this site it is even more “new and improved”!! Looks great.
