Hey there -

Sorry for the bad news, but Traci T. has just replaced you as mayor of Oregano's Pizza Bistro!

Don't take it too hard - a few more checkins and you could be back on top...

Another book about me...

It has happened again. Someone has published another unauthorized biography of myself. This one being titled, The Book of Awesome. You would think I would start seeing some money or something for all of these books.... Thanks for buying me a copy wifey, I will look into those royalty checks.

How about some stats?

Occasionally I check some stats on this blog. I look at the number of  visitors, referrals, etc. and I also check search results. I get a kick out of seeing what searches return this site and where on the results page they are ranked.

For the record, I am not advocating that you should punch a dolphin in the face, however it's been proven that if you're being attacked by a shark a punch in the face will probably save your life, and since sharks and dolphins have a similar shape... I guess you could go either way on that.

This started with my purchased online storage from Google, set up to automatically renew last month, it did not.

I have a ton of pictures in my Picasa Web Albums (PWA) and have long been well over the limit of allowed storage, so the additional storage came as a necessity and I've been using it for nearly 2 years. The storage is tied to other services I use too. Pictures in Buzz upload to PWA and Blogger saves all uploaded im…
