Announcing A New Blog Site

Please welcome to the blogosphere a new site called Band of Bloggers. The quotation in the site's heading reads "There Was A Time When The World Asked Ordinary Men To Do Extraordinary Things." Knowing some of the contributors there, I am certain that Band of Bloggers will be doing some extraordinary things!

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Whoami

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

perhaps they could use some comedic relief...

I saw the screen. Fatal dives from the Trade Center were dreadful.

Nanc,
Elmer's Brother will be posting there, so I expect a few quips. You know how EB is. Remember one of his recent comments about Hillary at Long Range?

Shah,
Yes, those images are dreadful. But I think it's important not to gloss over the horror of that day and what deeds the terrorists are capable of doing. As you know, on 9/11 Muslims in the Middle East were dancing for joy at the sight of those images. How could anyone rejoice over such a thing?

The site's off to a good start. Not too wordy either. I like that!

On a more amusing note:

"Saudi Arabia's religious police, tasked with chiding women to cover themselves and ensuring men attend prayers, are turning to cats and dogs. The police have issued a decree banning the sale of the pets, seen as a sign of Western influence."

Lucky for the dogs and cats. Those pet burkqas on the female dogs in that heat ... criminal, just criminal.

Jason,
Somewhere in my files, I have an article about the various Muslim purifications required when a Muslim comes into contact with dog hair. Cubed wrote the article some months back.

Jason,
Found it! I may post on the topic of dogs and dog hair next week.

Thanks for the link; it will dovetail nicely with what I've got planned.

It’s much needed comic relief. I was thinking of doing a Letterman-style top ten reasons why the ban is a good idea:

10 No cat fluff on the prayer rug.
Etc.

Jason- Cat fluff is okay, it's the furballs deposited that cause a problem!

Thanks, will def check this one out. Although I started blogging again, I am finding my time being able to post is sometimes hindered!

COOL! I'll head on over and check it out.
