I've taken the plunge! The last couple of weeks I've enjoyed reading others' blogs and didn't think I'd have time to have one of my own...but, well, I guess if I've had time to READ them I should have time to POST them!! It's all about priorities.
The final shove, though, came from my friends Rob & Joel, who decided to turn off "anonymous" posting on their blogs (and I totally understand their reasoning), although--alas and allack--that left me (even though I've always commented under "other" and not "anonymous"), unable to comment. (Even though I played blockfrenzy.com for that sole purpose--highly addicting, by the way, and I have yet to break 21 seconds.)
So, Joel, for your comment "Just get your own blog. It only takes a minute to set up!" (or something to that effect)--this blogs for you!
But I hope this blog is as much fun (and enlightening and hopefully eventually thought-provoking) to read as the ones that I've enjoyed have been.
