I have not been as active on this site as I expected to be because, about the time I started here, I came across one of my old high school buddies on Face Book and we started an email correspondence that has continued up to this day. I don't spend a lot of time on the internet, and this thing has occupied most of my online time for the last year or two. We generally don't correspond on the weekends, so I use that time to come over here and catch up with what you guys have been doing. I seldom comment, and I know that bothers some of you, but I don't like to say something just to be saying something, so I only comment when I believe I have something relevant to contribute. Also, by the time I read most of your stuff, it's old news and you probably wouldn't notice any comments I made anyway. (There appears to be some kind of glitch going on and I can't seem to make this thing start a new paragraph, so I will continue as best I can. Please consider the next paragraph to be starting here.) A couple of months ago, my old buddy and I concluded that some of the stuff we had been writing was pretty profound and too good not to share with the world. We ended up opening an account on Blogger/Blog Spot because they have a deal where you can have two or more authors on the same blog. What we have been doing is alternating writing posts, so the effect is like we are still exchanging emails, only now anybody can read them. So far, nobody has, but that's just because nobody on Blogger knows we are there, and I'm not sure how to spread the word without bringing in people who may not contribute anything constructive to the discussion. (New paragraph) It occurred to me that some of you guys might be interested, so I'm extending the invitation. Here's a link if you want to check it out: http://talkswithbeagles.blogspot.com It's not the same as what you guys post on Ipernity, so I won't feel bad if it's not to your liking, and you shouldn't either. There are almost 50 posts so far and, if you want to really know what's going on, you should probably scroll back to the earliest post and start from there. Of course, you don't have to, it's just a suggestion. I think we have it set up so that only registered members can post comments, but that can probably be changed. If you are a registered user of any other Google product, you are already registered on Blogger. Log on with the same user name and password. You don't have to be registered to view the blog, just to post comments.
