Do all blogs seem alike? (I hope not.) Here's a site that generates a random blog entry. Refresh the page for new nonsensical deep thoughts. Some blogs actually read like this - that's scary.

All we were doing is walking into an Olive Garden located in the middle of town, when we almost cross paths with the biggest beetle I have ever seen in the wild - about 3 or 4 inches long, not counting the legs or nose. My reflexes are well-honed. Without a second thought, I whipped out my camera and snapped some pictures.
After a little research on
the Internet (using words like "biggest beetle I ever
saw," "monster bug" and so on), I discovered that this
is an Eastern Hercules Beetle, also known as an ox
beetle or an elephant beetle. People like them for pets.
I don't know why. Do they do pet tricks or answer to

Sorry to still be moaning
about the weather. It was cooler today and it felt

Yay! At last! I am so glad
to see it flying again. Congrats to all the hard workers

I know I've blogged this
before, but it bears repeating, I think. I am currently
reading a book, learning how to make better movies. I
love making these little short movies and posting them
on my daily photo blog. My host, TextAmerica.com, allows
movies up to 25 mg. This is short, but with enough
compression and image size reduction, up to 2 or 3
minutes can be posted. The smaller the movie, the better
it looks (the less it has to be compressed) so I am
trying to discipline myself into making shorter ones.
