Mom

I’ll start posting a couple of pictures a day to get through the Sport’s Day photos. Everyone participates (who wants to), including both parents and siblings. My wife is somewhere in this picture — maybe you can spot her.

On another note, I read Dilbert (the comic) online daily. I confess a weakness for cynical humor… I also subscribe to the “DNRC” eZine (written by Scott Adams in his Dogbert persona). “DRNC” is almost too cynical to read, so I skim it. Today he had a section on blogging which was brutal, and all the more cynical because Scott Adams was actually announcing his new blog. I have to admit this hits a bit close to home.
>Scott Adams (as Dogbert) on blogging in the [DNRC](http://www.dilbert.com/comics/dilbert/dnrc/html/newsletter61.html) newsletter:

>When I see news stories about people all over the world who are experiencing hardships, I worry about them, and I rack my brain wondering how I can make a difference. So I decided to start my own blog. That way I won’t have time to think about other people.

>People who are trying to decide whether to create a blog or not go through a thought process much like this:

> 1. The world sure needs more of ME.
> 2. Maybe I’ll shout more often so that people nearby can experience the joy of knowing my thoughts.
> 3. No, wait, shouting looks too crazy.
> 4. I know – I’ll write down my daily thoughts and badger people to read them.
> 5. If only there was a description for this process that doesn’t involve the words egomaniac or unnecessary.
> 6. What? It’s called a blog? I’m there!

>The blogger’s philosophy goes something like this:

>Everything that I think about is more fascinating than the crap in your head.

>The beauty of blogging, as compared to writing a book, is that no editor will be interfering with my random spelling and grammar, my complete disregard for the facts, and my wandering sentences that seem to go on and on and never end so that you feel like you need to take a breath and clear your head before you can even consider making it to the end of the sentence that probably didn’t need to be written anyhoo.

>If that doesn’t inspire you to read my blog, I don’t know what will. You can find the Dilbert Blog at [http://dilbertblog.typepad.com/](http://dilbertblog.typepad.com/)
