No Post Today

"To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer." ~ Farmers' Almanac

In keeping with my personal commitment to create a new blogpost everyday, I am posting this to explain why I cannot create a blog post today.

I had an early appointment to have my car worked on and barely got up in time to get there. I still would have had time, after I returned home, to write a post, but while I was at the garage, I happened to notice wire showing through the tread on one of my tires. So, instead of sitting down and writing a new post, I jumped into the shower, and drove to Sears for a new tire.

After the new tire was installed, I had barely enough time to get to work on time. But no worries. I have a 2 1/2 hour long lunch period in which to write a post.

Wrong again. I had almost completed very insightful blogpost for today when I got booted from the internet. I lost the whole thing. Seems something happened with the local cable company and all internet cable service went kaput.

I have no land line. I use my cell phone for all phone calls, so I have no land line to fall back on in cases like this.

( I am typing this at the local library)

So, no post today! Sorry, "Casting Pearls" junkies!

Aw, come on, Man!!

You couldn't do an "Open Thread" kinda thing, or reprint a News Article or SOMETHING?

You are just going to leave us with nothing?

(Disappointment and depression overtaking Tug...)

Well, all right... (Sigh...)

Just you be sure and write something cool tommorrow, Mister, or else I'm just going to have to go read someone ELSE's blog...

I was typing up a post late last night and before I ever got around to hitting "save", all of a sudden mozilla firefox went "gotta close, sorry for the inconvenience". Aaaaaaarggh!

Excellent post, Mark.

As they say'S*** happens' move on, as the Marines say "Improvise, Adapt and Overcome". Are you a sheep or a sheepdog?
