What's All The Noise About?


New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march
of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things
that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man
has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of
darkness on other nights.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on
them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter
is New Year's Day

So, what of 2011? ...

Real Life

All-in-all, considering what could have been and what did happen, a very good year. Healthy, not wealthy, and wise ... two out of three cannot be bad :) Win.


Slowly-but-surely; not a superb strategy, for someone of my age ;) ... but, one I am content with, at this time. Nice to be more organised. Win.


What can I say? Sure, I put in the hours and some hits are from spammers and Google Image searches (so long as they get to where they want to go, that is fine by me), but, I am delighted where we have got to. I make a biggish thing about hits (103,686 :) ), yet, that 'aint my bag (I know what to do if that really was my aim), but, it is an indicator of how the blog is being accessed and/or appreciated; I appreciate it too :)

Blogger and its quirks with certain browsers? ... man, what a game <rolls eyes> ... but, as soon as I have saved up for my new PC, I am sure a lot of that will fizzle away; the old girl does get hot and bothered, at times ;) Win.

BTW, I am always happy to take advice, new blog URLs etc, or any comments (at the email, in my Blogger profile).

A competition is to be announced, this week (looking for some smaller prizes, along with mine, if any kind folk would like to donate ... particularly from you commercial bods ... pretty please :) ).

So, that is all for now, my friends ...

Peace, health and happiness, to you all, from The Colonel.

Very Nice
