Happy New Year

December has been a very busy month.  And keeping up with new content has been difficult during the holiday season.  So I apologize if I haven’t published as many posts and commented on as many blogs as I normally do during the last few weeks.  I’m trying to catch up as we speak and promise [...]

Friday Complaints

First, I’d like to congratulate Tiger Woods on being our “Moron of the Week Award” winner.  Every time I start to feel bad about the media pummeling him, I realize that he might just deserve it.

However, John Marcotte was the runner-up for this week’s award.  John is the California man who, according to the Huffington [...]

October 2009 Recap

Providing monthly recap posts is a growing trend among bloggers.  It’s an easy way to summarize your blog’s statistics, thank a few people and address anything else having to do with the last month.

So I decided to jump on the bandwagon and will add this feature moving forward.  So if this interests you, great!  And if [...]

I’m Back

Opps, we didn’t do it again.  I’m sorry to use part of that lame Britney Spears‘ quote, but in this case it was necessary.  I was fully prepared to announce this morning that we had defended our title, that The Constant Complainer had won and that we were again recognized as the “Best Local Blog” [...]

Ranting and Raving #2

First, I’m sorry that I’m a few days behind on reading and commenting on some of your blogs.  As you know, I’m always very good at doing so, but this past weekend was very busy and that’s normally when I do most of my online work.

Today is one of those days where there are a [...]

Moron of the Week Award #9

Hand down - Ryan O’Neal is this week’s “Moron of the Week Award” winner.

Words can not express what I was thinking when I heard this story on the radio earlier.  I couldn’t wait to get home and verify it.

Ryan O’Neal, Farrah Fawcett’s longtime lover, hit on his own daughter at Farrah’s funeral, because he didn’t [...]

Moron of the Week Award #8

Because of the strangeness associated with this story, rather than accepting nominations, I decided to award Stephanie Gregory Clifford the “Moron of the Week Award” for this week.

But wait, you don’t know who Stephanie Gregory Clifford is?  Are you sure?  That’s OK; I didn’t either.  That’s because she is better known by her other name, [...]
