My 100th Post !!

H23 BB00934850 * $100 'star note'

This marks a personal milestone for me: my 100th post. In the two weeks since I started this blog, my mind has kicked into overdrive. I will chase my daughter away from watching Hannah Montana videos on You Tube to do comment moderation. I guess you could say I'm obsessed.

I started this blog purely because I always loved to write. I was the geeky kid in school who was thrilled when we were assigned a report. You know, the one kids will pay to do the report for them. Yes, I made a couple bucks back then.

I really want to thank everyone who has commented on my posts or just stopped by to read, but there are just a few people in particular who I'd like to individually thank. They've become like an online family to me, and I'd like to acknowledge them:

  1. Clay at Bungalow Bill's Conservative Wisdom -- I stumbled across his site purely by accident (or divine intervention) during a Google search on a subject I now forget. He was gracious enough to allow for some pretty lengthy comments coming from yours truly on a variety of topics. That reignited my passion for writing. He is what I aspire to be in the blogosphere.
  2. Tim at Left Coast Rebel -- Tim has kinda been my technical mentor. He's given me suggestions anytime I've asked, and I know he's just an email away should I feel the need for guidance. Should I gain any popularity whatsoever, it will be because of his suggestions to me about how to increase traffic here. And he's cute too!!! :-D
  3. KOOK and Andrew33 (Joel) at K.O.O.K.'s Manifesto -- These guys are the fun-loving, wacky family I never had. Their humor and levity always make me smile. And the humor is just edgy and intelligent enough to fit in with my twisted sense of humor. They've also been gracious enough to feature some of my posts on their blog. They are my Xanax.
Please check out these blogs from these wonderful people. They've helped me along so much that I can't ever thank them enough.

And for those of you who enjoyed yesterday's entitlement post: check back later. We're going for a ride!

Congrats! Keep fighting the good fight. Obama needs a good intellectual punch in the nose.

Thanks! Personally, I'd rather kick Obama in the twins.

Great job. Looking forward to the next 100.

you think he has any? I think Lady M (aren't her arms amazing?) keeps them.

Congrats BNGFan. I don't even remember my 100th. I started with 28 all at once. I had been writing stuff down without even thinking of Blogging.

Lately Joel and I have gotten sillier. I started off more angry and maybe more educational. After a while you gotta laugh a little.

RK and KOOK -- Thanks much! And, KOOK, I guess you're right about the whole twins issue. lol
