This is the official home page for the good, the bad, and the ugly. Or, if it isn’t (every thing has an official home page these days) it might have some stuff in it that is good, bad, or ugly. All things considered I’d put my money on the bad and ugly if I were you.For reasons that escape me people actually read these pages. I take that back. People actually bring them up on their browsers. It’s a marvel to me. Mind you it isn’t like getting hits on the NASA pictures. However I notice that my home page gets several hundred hits a month. I also notice that it falls off rapidly when you go to individual pages. I have a theory about that. Nobody is reading these pages to speak of. What’s going on is that there are a zillion search engines bobbling through pages, building up their databases. The web is just a big scam – it’s all just programs reading web pages.
Nobody’s actually reading web pages? There’s more hope for the human race than I thought.
My faithful readers may have noticed that July and August have been prolific months for adding new pages to ye olde site. I’m not sure what this means. If you know, don’t tell me – to be honest, I’d rather not know. I have my suspicions and I’d just as soon not have them confirmed, thank you.
I haven’t the vaguest idea as to what will be added next. I have in mind to add the recipe for Thompson’s Turkey to the recipes page. I expect I will do some more fiction. However it has been suggested to me that I try my hand at professional writing. This I expect to do. What this means is that I will write various pieces and send them off to live in slush piles for a few months. When the inevitable rejection notices come back I will put the pieces up on my web site. Think of this site as a trash center.
Other than that I imagine I will continue to serve as a sand bar in
the currents of internet humor wherein odds and ends of intellectual
driftwood pile up. Somewhere along the way I may finish writing the
endlessly fascinating little stories of my life. On the other hand
I may not. Who knows? There hasn’t been any great consistency or
predictability about what appears here. And that’s the way I like it.
