Farewell

Folks, it's been just over one full year since I started this blog, and I think it is time to retire it. I hate the fact that I can't devote myself more to blogging, but the fact is, I just can't do it. In the beginning, it was really enjoyable. I would spend many minutes (hours) thinking about my next blog post. I got to write about so many different topics, including global warming, flossing, the stock market, the 2008 presidential race, bottled water, nude flights, double-dipping, big pharma, pig spleens, steroid-gate, the Super Bowl predictor (BTW, it FAILED big-time this year), Gary Coleman, Blue Thunder, eating bugs, saving the penny, toilets, the Barbie doll, camel beauty contests, poor Tim Russert, Sarah Palin, and so much more. It was grand having all of you read my oft-wrong opinions and actually take interest in them. I loved some of the great arguments that were waged in the comments section of the blog.

There is so much more to write about. War in Gaza, continued corruption in politics (? Bill Richardson), Caroline Kennedy, the crazy stock market, the upcoming Super Bowl, Sanjay Gupta as Surgeon General, Obama's plan for tax cuts, etc, etc, etc.

And, there lies part of the problem. There really is so much to comment on, but because I can't do this for a living, my research and time to write about the world is limited. Plus, I don't really know a lot about most of these topics....I'm no expert, thus no one really should listen to what I'm saying most of the time. There are so many other news and opinion sources out there that provide much more valuable information.

I wish you all the best. Thanks again for all the support. Here's to a good 2009 for one and all, and for peace around the world.

P.S. One last tidbit before I exit. Came across a piece on ancient hangover cures. The Assyrians consumed a mixture of ground birds' beaks and myrrh. Europeans in the Middle Ages munched on raw eel and bitter almonds. Mongolians ate pickled sheep's eyes. Itailans drank a mixture of myrrh, rhubarb, aloe, peppermint oil and opiates. Russians don't eat...they sweat it out in saunas.
