Oh bother

A couple of posts down from this is a post where I was doing some quick testing.  Generally, I grab a little thing to post, but I was in a hurry so I just put up a post that said "I'm testing something.  Ignore this."

So I get a jokey comment and I make a jokey response.  Which is cool, bring on the jokey everyone.

Then I got this comment to the same post a few days ago:

"This is a fantastic, It is glad to see this blog, nice informative blog, Thanks for share this article."

Now when I saw this, my first reaction was "Oh to hell with all of this."  And I went and looked at the "delete this blog" button for a little while.

Obviously I didn't, but then I got to thinking that if some loon making a daft comment can push me to quit, perhaps I ought to switch gears.

Now, thinking about this made me go back to the comment.  I clicked on the guy's profile info and then went and had a peek at his blog.  The guy's blog has one post.  It i…

"On a summer night in 1888 in Mannheim, Germany, Bertha Benz became the first person to drive an automobile on a social journey, the kind of trip we now recognize as a perfectly ordinary thing to do in a car.

This is how it goes

I tried my hand at taking at least one picture a day to try to get me in the habit of taking more pictures. On day two, I realized that I hadn't taken a picture yet at 11:59 pm. So I grabbed my cell and took a picture of my nightstand. Then at a minute after midnight I took another picture of my nightstand so I could get that day out of the way.

It went downhill from there.

I am doing some testing so right now this is not going to make much sense. Please ignore.
