New updates and a more regular writing schedule are on the way here at “ye olde blog”. Since re-opening “the road”, I admit that updates have been sporadic at best. I take full responsibility for that, but I could place blame on “day job” distractions. Work has been stressful and long days at the job have taken a toll on the muses that inspire consistent blog entries.
This is not to say that all work at this blog has been nonexistent. I have toiled in the background working on design issues. The Archives are working all the way back to May; but all the older articles prior to migrating to WordPress are still not available in the archives. There is also an issue with Google searches on old articles returning results that direct you to the actual old blog design. (I can’t believe how “dated” the old design looks now) I still have to correct all that. Hopefully, after that, the available search engines will find the updated entries and direct inquiries to the proper pages.
When I first reopened the blog in May; my friend Alan Eggleston over at Growing Up Boomer advised me to get on with “the hard stuff-the whiskey of writing”. Over the next few weeks, I think I can provide a few “shots” of the hard stuff supplemented with the “apple juice of writing” for some filler and consistency.
Upcoming programming will include a tribute to an old friend who recently passed away and a review of a website I recently discovered and have added to my “Links That I Like”. Of course, “Sunday Thoughts” will always be featured. (That is my one constant) I am also working on entries about “finding my religion” and the local stand-up comedy venues. That’s what I have on tap for now.
In the meantime; Today is the 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina hitting the Gulf Coast and even after 10 years of experiencing the storm; I’m not really in the mood to re-hash it, but if you want to re-live part of my experience, you are welcome to read, Katrina Not Over. It’s an update written 10 years ago during the last half of a very long night and day of the storm.
And it’s Saturday. This video clip is from 1965 and I will discuss it in more detail next week in a special blog entry. Until then–it’s your “Saturday Diversion” This concludes your update on the updates.
