I'm still trying to get the Comments to work, unsuccessfully at this point. I'm also getting some pictures ready to upload from the trip that the Missus and I took downtown this weekend. Meanwhile, here's some interesting reading about blimps. That's right, blimps!
Mention blimps, and most Americans probably think of the Hindenburgthe doomed German airship that exploded in a ball of fire above New Jersey's Lakehurst Naval Air Station in 1937. Or maybe the Goodyear Blimp, long a fixture high in the skies above major sporting events. But the U.S. Navy has something else in mind: Using airships for the war on terror.Read the rest here.

All right. Comments don't work. Time for bed. I'll work on it some more tomorrow. Dammit!
By the way, go outside right now and look at Mars, the Red Planet! It's awesome! Good night.
I'm testing a way for you, my Faithful Reader (Readers?) to comment
on my blatherings. Test out cgiComments,

I work out (not often enough) at Gold's Gym in Ashburn. My favorite time to work out is about ten in the morning. But, since now I actually have a job again, I've only been able to make it there in the evenings, when there's a little too much meat-marketeering going on for my taste. I'm a little too old (and married) for that...dammit. (Just kidding, honey!) There are a few other things that bug me:
There, I feel better now. Thanks for listening.

There are a couple of my
golf stories on Waggle.com, a local golf website run by a friend. There's
even a picture of me with a beard. Check them out and let
me know what you think. The stories, not the picture.
is a site with a bunch of pictures and documents from NASA's Apollo
program. Pretty neat.

There was an accident today right by my building. The left turn I needed to make was totally blocked by the cars in the accident, the police, the fire engine and the tow truck. I was really upset that I had to turn around and head back to the next exit up the interstate. It took me ten whole minutes to go the back way into work. Why did they have to pick there to have their accident?
Eventually I realized how stupid and selfish I was to worry about my ten-minute detour, when somebody may have been hurt in the accident. It's been about a year since the Missus was in a bad accident, but came out of it okay. I'd hate to think some jerk (like me) was worried about being ten minutes late on that day.
is what I'm getting my brother and father for Christmas. It's
a great gift for Republicans. Democrats may prefer a lump

I added a couple of pictures
today. I also created a page of thumbnails that link to
them. Let me know if you think the pictures are too big. Sometimes
I forget that not everyone has a cable modem. I highly
recommend getting one!

I'm glad you made it here. It took me a while to get the place set up, but I'm here to stay. This should be my home on the web for the rest of my life. If the web is around that long...since I plan to live forever!
I promise to try and update more often. More blitherings and blatherings! I want to keep my faithful reader (readers?) happy.

My Dad sent me some interesting genealogical information about my ancestors—at least the ones on his mother's side. Some interesting tidbits:
Pretty interesting stuff. To me, anyway. ;-)
