Why, someone tell me, is it that so many TV series promote an episode as "all new". All new? I better flippin' hope so! When we're only like a nano-second into the new TV schedule, the networks promote stuff as "All New". Like they'd dare show a repeat this early on? Wait, I should not assume anything. The TV industry has been continually seeking new lows in entertainment. I know it's not a popular opinion, but reality shows? *head-shake* I have nothing against the theory behind those type of shows, but in some ways they just seem like slightly more stylized and choreographed Jerry Springer shows. Better bodies, faces, and sets. But it's still all contrived. Or a great deal is. I have seen enough to know there are some real moments too. I don't HATE reality shows. I sometimes follow Survivor on the web, and I will catch MTV's The Real World now and then just to see what those crazy kids are up to. So, anyway..enjoy this ALL New season!

This is a test. Not just of your state of mind, but of my prowess at linking URL's. Enjoy!

Just an aside here. I told Mr. Redican that I wasn't fond (or capable ) of political commentary. One reason is I don't keep up with local news enough to comment intelligently. Another reason is I really want to try to be politically correct, at least for the first week. It wouldn't do to offend everyone right out of the gate. But being an active PTO member in our local elementary school, I want to remind everyone that there is a Town Meeting on Monday evening, October 7, 2002. I believe the school budget will be up for a vote. *Smile* There - that's it for my soap box ravings.
Hello and Welcome to my column. Technically speaking this is a Weblog, or Blog as the "in-crowd" says. Am I part of the in-crowd? Probably not, but they havn't told me yet, so I'm sticking around until I get booted out.
What I write will reflect what goes on in my life, which probably isn't a whole lot different from your own. Look - we already have Dracut in common, how's that for a start? (Unless you're peering in from some other burg -spying on how we do things - shame on you!) Actually that's just wishful thinking on my part, hoping that Oprah or Peter Jennings, or someone with clout will see my efforts here and extend that mighty hand of opportunity my way.
So, I invite you to come back often. If you're in luck, I'll have had my coffee, and perhaps had a chance to write coherently about some grand adventure or another. Speaking of adventures, I spent last weekend in Chicago at a martial arts convention and seminar. Wow. Very amazing. I'll be writing more on that soon. What's more likely though, is that I'll be sharing with you my adventures in house cleaning, child rearing, and grocery shopping. Lotsa fun, I promise you.
You will probably see this Blog change several times in the beginning, as I decide on the best template, or ways to add links, and so forth. Have patience please (because I have very little). See you soon.
