I don't want this to sound like an rant, but people really don't have good manners. In fact, I'd say most people are down right RUDE! This book is great! I think it should be mandatory reading for everyone.

“Talk to the hand ’cause the face ain’t listening,” the saying goes. When did the world stop wanting to hear? When did society become so thoughtless? It’s a topic that has been simmering for years, and Lynne Truss says it’s now reached the boiling point. Taking on the boorish behavior that for some has become a point of pride, Talk to the Hand: The Utter Bloody Rudeness of Everyday Life (or Six Good Reasons to Stay Home and Bolt the Door) is rallying cry for courtesy.

Farewell to Peter Drucker!

Link spam (also called blog spam or comment spam) is a form of spamming or spamdexing that recently became publicized most often when targeting weblogs (or blogs), but also affects wikis (where it is often called wikispam), guestbooks, and online discussion boards. Any web application that displays hyperlinks submitted by visitors or the referring URLs of web visitors may be a target. This is from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

What a PAIN! Just stop it with the SPAM! What makes you think I'd buy anything you were selling after you clog up my email, my blog, my life with your crap?

Gracie [2]

Gracie is still alive; the vet in Knoxville is making house calls and says that Gracie "is still pretty happy." Mark knows it won't be a lot longer but she is okay and comfortable and I know just how hard it is to make this decision. Love you!
