Who reads this sss. . . stuff?

July 26, 2009

We’ve been threatening to buy a computer notebook or lap top so that we can post more stuff more often because sometimes, while traveling on the road (It seems we didn’t post one entry while we were in Kalgoorlie Western Australia) getting access to a computer is tough. 

We might have already spent the price of a laptop on the computer time we’ve paid for while “on the road.”

Fans of Albert Camus might appreciate a guy going to Fremantle (Western Australia) and taking a photo of the Bon Scott statue for about 50 different hits world wide, but at times it does seem like the blogger is going overboard in his embrace of the Absurdism philosophy.

Recently my pal “Jersey Bill,” who is often the target audience for the photos of cars that we post over on the other blog, said that he rarely looks at our blog(s).  He will click the link if we send him one (as when we post a photo just for him) but the rest of the time he’s “too busy.”

That leads us to wonder:  Who reads my blog?

Are all the hits one time visits from folks who found something they wanted to read about and then they never come back?  Are there any regulars?  We did get one comment from someone who said she got a kick out this blog.  (Thanks for the encouragement.)  Does any member of my posse read this regularly?  Why, when we ask the audience a question (such as an attempt to find out who was “Comet radio” playing country songs at night in Australia), doesn’t any one answer?  We thought the Internet was more “interactive” than just touch and go landings. 

So we ask:

Who are these people?

Who reads this blog?

Does anyone read it regularly?

Who is “comet radio”?

For thirty pieces of silver?

Will members of the military testify against Bush as part of a plea bargain deal?

Spring Break! ! !

April 5, 2009

If we don’t post for a short while, you can just imagine what kind of spring break fun I am having and look forward to reading about it when posting resumes.

Ciao for now

Fold-up bike

March 24, 2009

Recently we met a guy in San Francisco, who was taking a very unique fold-up bike around the world and taking pictures in those places.  We took his picture and he took our e-mail address rather than give us his.  He said he would e-mail details about his project, but so far he hasn’t sent them.

Our picture of him will be posted later, if we don’t lose track of it in the mean time.

Publicity is an elusive commodity.  The guy should have made sure that I had his e-mail address so that he could get the small bit of publicity a mention on our blog would have delivered. 

Oh well, such is life.

We will run an update if he ever gets the details back to us.

Are you bored?

If you are bored then, perhaps, you will want to click to the site for the easily amused?

Thank You AlphaInventions!

January 8, 2009

Building a large base of regular readers (so that we can go into the T-shirt busines

and become rich selling them) is difficult.  Getting folks to send new readers such as

has done recently helps, so we just want to say:  “Thank you!” to Alpha Inventions.

Kalgoorlie reporter

January 4, 2009

We had a clip of the story from the Kalgoorlie Minor about how one of their reporters won a contest to be invited to the Paris Hilton NYE party in Sydney.  We lost the clip and can’t find it by doing a quick Google search.

It would have been a great story for Entertainment Tonight to pick up.

Photo for Kim M.

It’s very unlikely that Kim or “the Load-man” will ever see this photo, but the thing about running a blog is if the blogger likes the idea, then it gets done.

Best Christmas Ever?

December 23, 2008

What better Christmas present could a blogger want than a chance to scoop the New York Times.

I think I just did scoop the New York Times

and here

I guess that makes it the best Christmas ever!

Folks in Australia are looking for the billionth jar of Vevemite

Who says it has to be in Australia.  Yanks with jars of Vegemite should click and check.  It never hurts to ask, ay know.
