Your Google Search Brought You Here?

I want to apologize publicly to the searchers for "sex vides" that have visited here from Qatar and Saudi Arabia that I don't have any salacious videos for them here. HINT: it probably would help if you'd spell VIDEOS correctly.

And to the person from Germany that was looking for the translation of NVNC ID VIDES, NVNC NE VIDES, it's Latin (you probably knew that) for "Now you see it, Now you don't" - the motto of the Unseen University of Ankh Morepork on Discworld, my little homage to my favorite writer, Terry Pratchett.

I love Site Meter.

A friend of mine forwarded me this link to a video about a man whose job is repairing live high power lines. He is transported to the worksite in a heliocopter and protected from the high voltage electricity by a suit that functions as a Faraday cage I wonder what the job posting on this kind of employment opportunity would look like? "High power position of electrifying excitement!"

By now I think everyone who cares to, has had an opportunity to speak their mind on the passing of Jerry Fallwell. One of the best things I've read was an interview with Tinky Winky the Teletubby in Salon. (You might have to register for a free day pass to read, it might be Salon Premium. I also noted they're offering a free membership to Salon premium, but you only get it after applying for an American Express card and getting approved.)

I find it encouraging that as the old wave of conservative Christian leaders passes on that there are church leaders out there that are focusing on a different public agenda - "compassion issues". I heard a piece on NPR about a mega-church in Florida that has a environmental program, "Creation Care". Bravo.

More NPR stuff: Clownfish (remember Nemo?) chatter and can the Mythbusters cause an avalanche by yodeling?

Finally, and my daughter will be sad to hear this, our local Michal Negrin store has lost its lease. I guess I'd better rush over to the Going Out of Business Sale and stock up!

I have a serious sitemeter addiction problem. Sometimes I'll check the general number, go in and see where everyone is from, then how long they were on, what their referral was... and by then it's time to check the overall number again in case someone else arrived.

I think I need an intervention.

You only need intervention if checking site meter is significantly cutting into your blogging and/or Absolute Write posting. Gotta keep those priorities straight, you know.
