Hell, yes! I see you got here allright. Have you updated my url yet? Go ahead. I'll wait for you. I have new templates I may use later for this place, but I like the flexibility of this site for now. It was a challenge to duplicate this site to Blogger's specs. I'm satisfied with the comments box I made. OK. Obligatory welcome post out of the way. Let's shoot some shit....

How're You Gonna Keep 'Em Down On The Farm?
"Resident Bush is a romantic at heart and a devoted family man," explains the heavily shellacked automaton with the frozen smile, his wifey, Laura Bush. In a recent Good Housekeeping interview, we don't hear about the Cuervo body shots or what a 'bush' man really means. Instead, she spins a tale of slack-jawed bewilderment, tales of sitting in rockers on the front porch of the ranch house and staring blankly out into the south 40, er 40,000. "My George is a 'windshield cowboy' now, meaning he drives a pickup truck, you know. I sometimes miss our good old days here in Texas when the chi-dren ["l" omission intentional] were small and George would give me an occasional ass-grab after coming home late from sharing an 8-ball at a frat party. Now, where are my manners? Can I get you a glass of sweet tea? Cooking sherry?"

Just Blog It
»Bea's started a Blogrolling Ring. And already has 70+ bloggers signed up in only a week's time. Ever thought about fund-raising, Bea? After you check out her mighty fine blog, you can find the url for the Blogroller Ring on the left side of her main blog page.
»Crystal, aka "Crinkle", a fellow southerner and a rock star, has a terminally ill father who is undergoing a biopsy today. If you offer up prayers, please send one on his behalf.
»Trinity, a Florida blogger pal, has recently started a site called BlogEye, where she's offering web design and free hosting for bloggers. She's a very talented designer and quite knowledgeable, too. The hosting sounds somewhat like Blogger, except without the banner ads.

Thank You
I really enjoy the blogging folks I communicate with online. I brag on you all the time. Even though I'm a wise-ass crone, I enjoy the fine ones that are my age, but most people I talk to online are my son's age.... or younger. I get a huge kick out of that. Huge. To the younger bloggers, I thank you. You fucking rock. I appreciate your acceptance, and I respect your wisdom, intellect and humor as much as anyone's.

January 9
Jimmy Page, [Led Zeppelin], has a birthday today. He's 59. And Robert Plant was nominated for two grammys on Jan 7. On the other end of the musical spectrum, Joan Baez is 62 today.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
