Welcome To My New Blog
Welcome to my new blog. I have called it “Nothing Happens At Ten”.
Remember way back when your Mother, Father, Teacher… whatever… said
to you, “You had better <go to bed> <eat your peas> <get in here> before
I count to ten!”?
Well, that threat had me hopping for quite a number of years. I got
stuff done PDQ, before anybody could count to ten. It wasn’t until years
later that I asked the question:
“What happens at ten?”
Let’s assume that I had not done the demanded action by the time they
got to ten. Then what? What happens? And that was when it came to me,
and I finally realized that nothing happens at ten.
Just think of all the things I could have gotten away with if I had only
realized earlier that nothing happens at ten!
So now I have named my blog after that fundamental principle of life. I
am hoping to be able to inject some humor and insight into the World
Wide Web by blogging on just about anything that pops into my head. I
may be successful; I may fail. But I will always be assured that,
whatever the outcome, Nothing Happens At Ten.
