I miss the voices

Jonathan Edwards – Sunshine

Today’s Quote: “Show me the manner in which a nation cares for it’s dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high ideals.” — William Gladstone

Out of sheer boredom (not to be confused with translucent or opaque boredom), I started looking through past LJ entries. Talk about a long, strange trip. I sort of miss the voices. Where did they go? It’s also been quite a while since I’ve felt the pull of the Dark Side. I’d like to believe that’s completely in the past but I know better. Once you’ve gone over to the Dark Side, it will always have influence over you.

I spent several hours today updating my genealogy site today. With all the new people I’ve added in the last couple of weeks, it seemed like a good idea. The most noticeable change will be the background. I think the new one will be more readable. I also added the background to the set of pages that had just a plain white background.

I watched the new Blue Collar comedy show. I thought Bill Engvall’s part was the funniest. The DVD is supposed to be available on the 27th. I’ll be looking for it. I should be able to find it in a redneck town like this.

I got one through four despite the fact that the answers were so obvious.
