Whatever happened to AlCave Jones?

And we're back!!!

Wow has it been 19 days since an update. Sorry about that. Overtime, computer viruses and people in the hospital kind of took precedence over the blog.

It has been my goal since July to have a blog update for every day. And that's still the goal. Over the next few weeks I will be doing "Missing Posts" for the days I missed. Some of them will be old news like Patrick Swayze dying and September 11th and what not. These are the posts I would have made that day if I had time.

When I finish making all 19 Missing Posts, I'll post an index list for easy access.

Thank you for your patience.

Well now there are 2 blogs in this household.

My wife Andrea has started a blog. You can check it out here.

It probably won't be long until Jax and Matt have a blog...

To Tweet or not To Tweet

I've been debating whether or not to start using twitter to advertise the blog.

So I put the question to you to reader. Do any of you use Twitter?

I've been really swamped at work, hence all the blog delays.

Normal blogging will resume shortly.

Looney Bay: Toy Circus

This week John tried to break all of my transformers toys... I mean collectibles.

Lesson: Fruit of the Spirit (Joy)

Script: The mysteriously diabolical clown, opened a toystore and started selling transformers. Who knows where he go them from but I'm sure it was illegal. Sam starts begging Herm for money because he has to have the newest figure. But the figures don't bring joy and he has to buy another and another and another.

adlibs: I failed to realize that Sam wouldn't be able to pick up the toys since his hands didn't work so he had to bite all the toys. So we started adlibing that Sam was eating the transformers. Also we got to use the drawbridge to display the toys! We never use the drawbridge!

Blunders: John dropped a couple of the transformers and they exploded into pieces. Luckily the newer transformers just pop back together. The old ones from the 80's would have been unable to be fixed.

Overall: Good day

What are time traveling posts?

I try and have a new post day for every day of the week. Time traveling posts happen when I'm away from the computer and can't make that day's post. This weekend was full of time traveling posts because I had a pretty busy three day week.

And now you know...

Sometime last week little black and white signs with the phrase "" started popping up all over Louisville. I was curious so I visited the site. There's a mysterious countdown and a clue reading "ten4eleven44". There are also links to facebook and twitter.

What could it mean?

At first I thought it was a radio station since ten-4 is radio talk, but that doesn't work. AM stations end in 0 and FM stations are odd numbers.

Someone suggested that its the time of a church service... 11:44. Sounds weird but I guess plausible.

Maybe its a pattern, ten4, eleven44, twelve444?

Here is my guess. If you take ten4eleven44 and turn it into calculator upside talk you get: hhllhol or Hellhole. I knew it! Louisville is on top of a Hellmouth that is going to open in October. Someone call Buffy!

Christmas draws near

Today on the way to school, I was trying to point out to Jackson how close Christmas was. Now I'm not sure if the following is a failure on the public schools or on myself as his parent. More likely than not Jackson was just being silly.

Me: Jackson, do you know what comes after September?

Jackson: August.

Me: No, October. Do you know what's after October.

Jackson: Easter!

Me: No, Halloween. Do you know what's after Halloween?

Jackson: Easter!

Me: No! November. Do you know what's after November?

Jackson: Easter!

Me: No! Not Easter! Thanksgiving. Do you know what's after Thanksgiving?

Jackson: Easter!

Me: No, December! Do you know what's after December?

Jackson: Christmas!

Me: Right.

Jackson: And then Easter!

Me: Oh forget it.

the epic meeting

Way back on October 31st, 2001, I got to meet Bruce Campbell at a book signing. I realized some of my newer friends have never seen the picture of this epic meeting. So here it is in all its glory.

Geez... I look scared to death.
