Decisions...

Please be seated because an executive decision has been made.

I love this blog and all the ones that I write on.

Based upon many different factors, ALL my sites will no longer be updated on a day-to-day basis. They will be written on when I get the time, and the energy. This decision is effectively immediately.

The following are my sites that are in this decisions I have made.

No longer Updated:
Vintage Sports and Photography-This blog will no longer be updated.

Updated once a week or when time permits:
Today in Sports-This Blog will only feature Major League Baseball, Nascar, and the NFL, unless "special" posts are indicated. Posting will be at most, once a week.(Sunday nights)

Here- A Table For One... Updated from time to time, not often and not saying that I will again.

Updated as usual:

Chicago Sunsets -This site will be updated as usual or until I move from the 37th floor here in Chicago. The last post was amazing, please check it out and comment.

Destination Unknown... Updated as usual, fun and when material is "funny."

Please stop by and poke your head in from time to time, or better yet-sign up for a RSS feed like MY Yahoo, or any other to see when I am updated.

Active Blogs on Blogmad-NONE.
Active Blogs on BE: Sunsets, and Destination Unknown.

Thank you for your understanding and updates will be posted here. I know that the readership is heavy here, so don't take me off your Blogrolls because I may be back-no promises.
Thanks
Chris

Not enough time.

Time...it isn't in my side during the last ten days and I apologize to all my readers and visitors. I have so much to write about, and not enough time. I am still in the Pain Management Clinic being treated for Chronic Pain Syndrome and working on getting me back in 2 shoes. If you read my post on trading up, you will know what I am talking about. I will be back soon and I sincerely apologize to all.

I do have something that you all can help with. I am debating on changing the header picture and I would like your advice.

Do you like this picture better for the header design or worse.

Please comment and I promise to get you all up to date on the characters that in my pain management class and also what has been happening.

Thanks for understanding and talk to you soon. I look forward to your comments on the picture.

ROCKJAY Takes a seat at A Table For One...

So the phones rings and I answer the call and it is RockJay... He says that he would like to take up some space at A Table For One...and mentioned that if I play my cards right, I can get my doo-rag back that he "borrowed" for the skeleton on his header. I appreciate that and let's show him some love so I can get my shit back!

Ladies will want to read the latest entry...if you like shoes and bags!!


ATTENTION...New Renter in the house. It's
RockJay, from "RockJay, A Series of Unfortunate Blog Incidents..." He is worth a click to see what the current conversation is about getting out of the dog house....(ladies pay attention to this).
I have been reading RJ since I started blogging and he has taken space on 3 of my blogs and I am glad to have him. He is located over there <----- on the left and all you have to do is click and visit.

This is a great read and I am sure that you will put this on your "links" or "Blogroll" for future visits.

Thanks for stopping by.

Just needed a day to collect my thoughts....

Today I had an appointment in the morning that I was thinking would go for about an hour.

It shouldn't have gone past the first minute. The person that I was meeting with wasn't there and was recommended by a friend to meet with. That would be bad sign #1. The woman that met with me is just a year a half into the job (out of school) and #2 wasn't very sharp. #3 she was an idiot. I knew it when she said, "You are here......because....." wasn't a good sign. She had no clue. I could have been there to test for radon gas for all she knew.

So I sit in the office and she is taking notes the entire time and I am thinking that I wish I was really fishing and not just stepping away from the blog(s) for a day at this point. She was awful. She never asked any questions and in the middle of the meeting she answers the only question that meant anything to me.

I ask her, "Based on what I have told you, what do you think of the ****."
Her response, "We don't do many of these types, and (insert name here) is VERY picky on these types... and we don't win very many either..."

I'm sorry, excuse me... and she repeats the above statement...and all I am saying to myself was - there is an hour of wasted time that I will never get back.

I may have to move past go and head right to the person that can help me.


I hope that I can recover that hour with something good....I am thinking that another day of fishing for real wouldn't hurt. Blue fin Tuna here I come.

Have a great day and I am sure it will be better than my morning. I will do the mailbag for Monday - Wednesday tomorrow night. So far, nothing worth posting about unless you want to pay my Discovercard bill?

Are you fucking kidding me?

Warning! This post (entry) will contain a blond conversation (I love blondEs too...) about Buffalo Wings and an opinion or option that everyone that blogs should look into.

Here is the conversation:

TT: What are you doing tonight?
**: We are heading out for wings
TT: Buffalo Wings?
**: Wings, you know the boneless ones...
TT: Are they hot like Buffalo wings?
**: Well you can get them in different kinds
TT: So you prefer them over the ones with bones?
**: Well these are the same right? They just take the bones out. No?
TT: (silence) Ah..no...You know that basically boneless chicken fingers are made out of processed chicken and seasoned then deep fried right?
**: What?
TT: (silence)
**: You mean that there were no bones in the boneless fingers?
TT: Ahh...No
**: You are fucking kidding me right?
TT: (holding back the laughter) Nope....How do you think that they take them out?
What about the skin from "real" Buffalo wings?
**: You know, I never thought about it.
TT: How couldn't you see the difference? The skin and the breaded difference is evident, no?
**: Are you sure...
TT: (silence) (and a subject change)
**: (5 minutes later) you can't tell anyone that I didn't know the difference and that I thought they just took the bones out. O.k.? You can't tell anyone that I didn't know that and because I thought they were the same. Ever! ( ) Fuck... That isn't good....
TT: Sure thing. (Yeah right....)


Needless to say, I mentioned that I was going to post the conversation.

As of 12 noon today the cat was let out of the bag and now the repercussions of the conversation are raining down on her this Saturday by her entire family.

I guess I didn't have to tell anyone...anyways.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

O.k. "I am not one to brag or boast, but I like hot butter on my breakfast toast" (name that line and I will send the first person to answer 5 MC's to you (must be a BE member)) but I was checking out Blogmad, and I was kinda iffy at first when I was surfing and then I started to see blogs that I haven't seen before. This was the cool part of surfing and then there were the ones that I have read a trillion times. About 20 minutes after I started surfing I was rewarded with a 10 credit bonus. (That was last night.)

I left Blogmad thinking that was o.k.

Then this morning I was checking out some of the other features and back to surfing. As you will see below, there is more that the 1:1 ratio for surfing and getting seen over there. I think that they will do well. I am in no way reviewing them, but if you check out the screen shot below, you will want to surf there as well and give them a try. It is by invite only now and you will need to click on the banner below to join. I hope you hit the 175 Bonus Credits as well!

Just so that you all know, I am a huge fan of BE and I am sad to see the "For Sale" sign go up. Thank you to Tom and Jeff for all the hard work that has gone into BE and hopefully what it will become in the future based on your current efforts!

A readers response.

I have always been interested in a few things when it comes to readers of A Table For One... and other blogs.

Here are some of my thoughts I can share.

What is the % amount that a reader looks past the first post?

Does the most recent post dictate the tone for other posts?

Do readers look at the history on the sidebar and "pick" what they think may be an interesting topic?

Does a visitor ever look back in the archives?

<><><><><><><><><><><><><>

I have my opinions on those questions as well and one of those questions was confirmed in an email that was sent directly to me. The email was in regard to a post that I did in November on Clinton and what effect he has on domestic and global issues.

The email reads:

I read your entry about Clinton and I must say that your opinion is right on. It is a shame that most people only remember him for thinking he uses his head in his trousers 90% of the time. Thanks for a great entry and I will continue to stop by your Table For One.

P.s-I was just going to send this to you, but figured that I would tell you that I liked what you wrote about.

If you care to read that post on Clinton you can get there by clicking here.

Thanks for the nice cartoon and I laughed when I read the email and saw the comic.

Thank you to all that stop by and if you have answers to the questions above, please leave a comment.

Regards,

TT
