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.

Dang!

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.

    Hi Brian, I enjoyed our Christmas Eve phone call!!! This is the first time I have been on your site since just after you moved into the house. I thought I would refresh my memory as to the layout of the kitchen since Lauren mentioned in the Christmas card that 3 of you managed to cook simultaneously, however, I don’t see any of those wonderful house photos anywhere. Am I right or just cyber stupid? Cliff
