Curiouser and Curiouser

Okay, it’s been three days since my last blog.

Oh boy. You can really get behind on these things very quickly. I keep saying I’m not going to slough off, and then I turn up and end up doing it.

All right, it has not been an unprofitable couple of days, although I admit not much got done today.

First, on Saturday, I made a video of the Christy Mathewson Day Parade. It turned out to be a very good decision. One of the people participating in the parade asked if he could post the video to his Facebook site. I agreed. It turned out the video drew a respectable number of posts over a short period of time. He must be a popular person.

Yesterday, I was tempted to take a day off. But something just kept gnawing at me. I just couldn’t let the day go by without posting something. So I ended up posting a video of some ice flows on the Susquehanna River that I took about 18 months ago.

And now today. Which is nothing, if you don’t count blog. I guess that instead of yesterday, I figure that I today will be my day off.

Oh, it wasn’t completely without merit. I spoke to Gene Dziak about the possibility of doing a video about the challenges many emergency responders will be facing due to lack of volunteers. He was enthusiastic, and agreed to supply me with some contacts next week.

Also went to the fitness center and rode my bike for a bit.

And, at the end of the night, I spoke to Paul, who suggested I use facebook and other social media to advertise myself. That seems like a very good idea, and I will look into it in the near future.

I’ve just got to stop making these entries late at night, because I’m not alert enough to make a decent entry.

Okay, it’s that time again. Time for today’s bad joke!

A group of Cub Scouts were having a den meeting, when suddenly a fire truck roared past. This started a conversation about firefighters and fire fighting, when someone questioned why many departments traditionally had a Dalmatia dog as a mascot.

One suggested was the dog is used for crowd control, while another thought it might be for luck. Finally, one boy spoke up and said:

“Naw, you’re all wrong. They use him to find the fire plug!”
