    I think you do a very good job in walking the line between presenting a ton of good information in an organized way versus an exhaustive review that is tough to get through.

    I am amazed at your ability to get great quality diaries out several times a day.

    I know it takes a lot of work, it really is appreciated.

      some different hobbies.  

      But, I made a commitment to pull all the stops to help elect President Obama and other Democrats.  But, now I'm stuck in a pattern I'm finding difficult to stop, as I'm starting to figure out the patterns for doing this.  I like puzzles.

      But, having four rec'd posts in a row, (or was it 4 out of 5) has sort of boxed me in.  Cuz I now have accumulated about a dozen fun, less significant potential posts on star pictures, a break through in severed spinal nerves, producing liquid fuels from garbage, etc, that are going to seem trivial by comparison and not worth hamming it up to the extent I did these last four.  Or, I could do it, but it would seem silly, just when I've almost convinced folks I'm a potentially serious writer.

      This is one reason I hate this rule that we can only have one UID.  Because if I had another called Mutt, or Mixedbreed, I could whip off about six quickies and get my total post count up to 660 which would get me on the first page of the "most prolific authors" list which had been my goal for the last year by the election when I was then going to stop writing.

      I could do in in a week or two if I didn't care about my image, which I shouldn't since I'm anonymous. But it is funny in a weird way the extent to which my ego and vanity works its way so quickly back into fictitious anonymous identities that I originally created to escape from.  

      So, I think I'll wait until later this evening when fewer are looking and blast out a series of quick ones.
