An Inconspicuous Absence

I haven't posted anything here in almost a year. There are a couple of excuses for the absence. Neither of them are very good. The second is that Google has changed blogspot a little and I have been having a hell of a time trying to sign on, let alone post anything. That excuse is only slightly less lame than the first excuse: Facebook.

Most of what I have posted in the past have been political rants. They were invariably very similar to many, many other blogs of political rants. Facebook allows me to rant in haiku style. A sentence or two along with a cute visual usually suffices. And all my "friends" get to read my opinion and like them or ignore them... here I was writing what amounted to columns and no one was reading them. I will continue ranting on Facebook. Even though the president just won reelection, there is still quite a bit to rant over. I will also continue to post photographs on so stop over there and check out the latest. As for here... time will tell. Twice a year hardly substantiates the rationale behind having a blog. How is this? If I have something to say that I think is worthwhile and entails more than a sentence or two, I will try to post it here, if I solve the second excuse...
