Sunday Update: Most of what I had expected to do is done now, thanks to Andrew Riley and Duane Lester. Duane and I were talking and I mentioned my woes. He whistled up Andrew, who just did some great work at his site, and, literally within five minutes of that conversation, Andrew was on my […]

Smitty dropped me a note to ask if I had a picture of The Sundries Shack as glorious as that of the grocery store next to Jules Crittenden’s Right Wing Warmonger’s Bookshop. As it happens, yes I do and it’s an awfully nice place, as befits The World’s Finest Country Store-Themed Blog. I came across […]

If you’re around your computer this afternoon, you’ll be able to catch me on The Ed Morrissey Show today at 3 PM Eastern. I’ve admired Ed’s work for some time, going back to his Captain’s Quarters days, even before I was a blogger myself. He’s going to give me the whole first half, which means […]

I will be on PRI’s morning show “The Takeaway” tomorrow morning at 6:45 AM. I and Marjorie Dannenfelser (of the Susan B. Anthony List and Team Sarah) will be talking for a few minutes about Sarah Palin. It ought to be interesting radio, though brief. UPDATE: That was enjoyable, actually. The hosts, Todd Zwillick and […]

I should be a bit jealous about this, but I’m not. Stacy works his tail off and he’s worth every penny he gets in donations. Then again, so am I. So if you’re not inclined to donate to him (and you should hit him first, so he can put on that shindig this weekend), slipping […]

Amazon has a very nice deal that you may find too good to resist – $100 off Rosetta Stone language-learning software. Rosetta Stone is probably the premiere software program if you want to learn a second (or third) language. Everything I’ve ever heard about it has been very good. I have looked at buying this […]

No, folks, I haven’t died. I’ve just had more than the normal demands on my time over the past couple days, split among work, other writing projects, and home stuff. Everyone’s just fine. I’m just fine. I’m not very happy about it either. I’ve been trying to steadily build my traffic to somewhere around a […]

I got tagged last week by the “filthy blog pox” fairy but decided to save my post for a slow day. Well, it doesn’t get slower than this weekend, so here are my eight not-so-random things about yours truly that you’d never think to ask even if you were “Mancowed”. First, though, let me point […]

Blogging was light today, mostly because I spent some time getting caught up on other tasks I’ve let slide lately. Also, I went to my first ballgame of the year tonight. The home team lost 10-6, but the fireworks were pretty sweet (though short). Our trip into the archives tonight goes back two years. I’ve […]
