I'm new - and I have a blog.
« on: March 24, 2011, 04:02:09 PM »
It's thoughtful to have a dedicated category for blogs - nice!

Here's mine - I enjoy needling the opposition when the opportunities arise.

http://www.catswiththumbs.com/

I also embedded a link to the site in my sig. pic - let me know if that's prohibited and I'll remove it post haste.

Thanks!

Also - some less than cognizant dink started a useless literary blog with the same name (I'm an English teacher - I can call it useless) - it's not mine - his has the wordpress designator in his url.

I tried to reason with him politely - mistake.

I'm going to have to shell out 300.00 for a trademark.    :hammer:

A month long on-site investigation by Cats With Thumbs field reporters confirms illegal immigrants from Mexico are being launched over the border in increasing numbers by a massive catapult. U.S. Border Patrol agents on location along the Texas-Mexico border have dubbed the device "Jose Cuer-throw" and are at a loss for an effective countermeasure. "Beats anything I've ever seen," a confidential Border Patrol contact told our CWT reporter at the scene; "one minute you're minding your own business walking the fence line, next thing you know a family of four comes sailing overhead at better than 80 miles an hour. By the time we get to where we think they should have landed, they are long gone."

That's funny right there!

Nope - all politics - of my own invention. :mental:

We were down in Key West a few years ago, visited Hemingway's estate - they look after 20 or 30 polydactyl cats (cats with thumbs), all descended from the original given to old Hemingway by a sea captain.

I dunno - I had to pick a name for it, that one popped up.

There's some funny stuff over there.  You should go look.

By the way ... CWT .... are you a conservative?  If you're a liberal you need to dumb down your site a little and put some misspellings on there so we can identify you.

Yep, I'm conservative - I'll try to screw up the next article.  :wink:

Thanks for the kind words, BTW.

Heh, I meant .... if you are a liberal you would need to mess it up so your liberal friends could follow along. 

I'm not much with the typed word.  I have a hard time getting my thoughts out.  Not so much in person just in writing.  That's why HNC won't hire me.

LOL.  HNC won't hire you because you disagree with his dress code, be honest!   :-)

There is that.  There appears to be a HUGE difference between the saying;

I'm gonna break my boot off in your ass

vs

I'm gonna break my croc off in your ass

See .... it just doesn't work.

I had it linked on Facebook's networked blogs - I have a separate FB skeleton set up; I'm going to redo the template before I link it back in.

I hate changing everything over, but it will look better and be easier to use.
