Why a Blog? Last Sunday I asked my son Michael, to stop by and meet a newspaper editor, friend as he drove past on his way somewhere who also needed a Web site at some point. I did not ask him to make a special 1 ½ mile arduous, grueling, hazard fraught trip. I didn’t expect him to stay, he had commitments. It seemed from his tone that I had asked him to; climb the Himalayas with a Sherpa, navigate the ice caverns, approach a mother polar bear with cubs and a BB gun, pee in the Amazon with those little critters that swim up your pee-pee and eat you from the inside while you scream for 7 days a painful death, sleep in the swamp with alligators, climb in a sleeping bag in the Louisiana Bayou on the ground, face off with a mountain lion alone on the bike trail on his way home from work ALONE, crawl on his belly through broken glass laced with poblano pepper juice on one side and chiggers biting him on the backside, because he said he would rather have his skin ground off with a sander than be bit by a bunch of chiggers. So, on Monday I sent my daughter-in-law, Tanna, an email at work, to that effect and she laughed hard enough that her co-workers had to revive her and she said “you need to start a Blog.” Bingo.
