So, uh…

There are some very unlucky folks wandering around the interweb trying to find pictures of naked ladies and such and winding up here. I know this because I get a stat report that shows me how many people visit the site and how they get here. If they come from a search engine, I'm able to see what terms they searched to get here and what page on my site it took them to. If you've been around here long, you may recall that my attorney friend played a little game with this feature a couple of years ago, entertaining me with all kinds of creative search hits. Anyway, there have been a few of these this week, and I'm pretty sure it's not Andy this time. The whole thing is odd because (among other oddities), the terms they are searching have no correlation to the page(s) on my site they're finding. The moral of the story is, of course, if you aren't smart enough to use a better method for finding pictures of naked ladies, you deserve to end up here. Sorry, dude.

Some new tricks and gadgets…

In my renewed blogging energies, I realized I was exceptionally bored looking at the page, so I spent a few minutes playing with a new look.

I also discovered that Typepad, the people I pay to let me do this (or the people I've been paying to let me not do this) has added all kinds of bells and whistles to my service. I'm toying with some widgets. Now if you thought "widget" was the official term for an actor playing a munchkin in The Wizard of Oz, join the club. As it turns out, it's not. [For those who find that joke insensitive, please know that I am very pro-little people and then go look at how those actors are actually billed at imdb.]

One of those widgets is the box you see in the upper right of the page. This enables those of you with microphones built into your computer to record a message for me. I do this with great faith that you will provide me with an endless stream of inspiration, wisdom, and edification. Don't let me down.
