There’s No Place Like Home(page)…

Welcome to Today in Heritage History at Word

We began as a one page children’s book forty years ago, and have grown into the mega-publishing online empire that we (I) are today (that was all bullshit). All I can tell you is,…”stay thirsty my friends”.

This was an idea that came to fruition almost a year ago now in my desire to use my inherent “talent” for being a “smarty-butt” (thank you Sister Patricia…), and my hope to not just be a “stupid-smarty-butt”. Hence, welcome to the land where humor meets history (or history meets humor, however I’m feeling that day). Ya’ know.. some days its funny..and some days it “ain’t”. The ill-humor I share here, even though no real animals have been harmed in the process, just isn’t for everyone (or maybe it’s for no one except me, I haven’t decided yet). Some days you hit a home run, and some days, you strike-out every time you get at bat. I don’t know why I just said that because I fucking hate sports analogies. Today is my effort to poke fun at both history and the human condition and to be smart. I made the commitment a year ago (July 18, 2011) to do at least one post every day. The year has not been an easy year for me, but I have kept my commitment to myself and to my readers and have done just that. The Today blog won’t be forever…I have since started a couple of other “things” that when the time comes, should you be an ill-humored disciple (joking), I’ll let you know where you can find me. If not, you’ll finally be rid of me.

One last thing that I really want to say here, is about blog award “stuff”. Thousands of you (well like four or five) have nominated my blog for whatever kinds of things are around Word Press world (which I LOVE by the way…this is such a neat community of bloggers…I never realized what a community of bloggers was on blogger…it’s like pissing into cyberspace). As difficult as it may be for some of you to believe, Today is my alter ego. The “real me” can always be found at my LinkedIn profile. And, the “real me” has a difficult time with notoriety and being “awarded”. It’s not that I don’t really, really like some one to appreciate my work, it’s just that I have a really hard time with some one pointing that out. So, for those of you who have done so already, thank you so very much for doing that. It is not that I am smugly unappreciative as it may seem at first, it’s just that it humbles me terribly and is something wonderful but not necessary.

So with that, the blogospherecalled today is now inside the home page. Venture if you will, as you know the journey can be funny or not, offensive or not, smart or not, or even true or not. Regardless, consider it as a historical “wet-willy” waiting for you on the other side. Enter at your own risk, but any way you have it, have it with some fun. Stay funny my friends…

  1. I like your blog. I appreciate your sense of humor. It adds a wonderful touch to the twitter world. I look forward to hearing from you everyday.

  2. I like your blogs and miss your wonderful sunny sense of humor. It adds the right touch to the tweeting community.

  3. Oh, yes, and I really really miss Gary Larson! Where did he go, anyway! Death by chocolate is nothing compared to the death by laughter that he caused along his journey!!! 🙂

  4. You seem to have a clear picture of your blog! You probably deserve all those awards, too, if only because you’ve managed to post something every single day for a year, and that’s not easy! You’re funny. Keep going! Your posts always bring a smile to my face (or a roll of my eyeballs….)

  5. Because you make me laugh on a daily basis, I have nominated you for The Sunshine Award. This is the link

  6. Those awards are just chain letters anyway. Don’t break the chain you might get bad luck! Usually you have to nominate seven other blogs when you “win’ such an award. This means that after 11 generations you’ll have a theoretical maximum of
    1,977,326,743 blogs recieving an “award’. I guess its democratic at least, everyone will get one eventually.

  7. What?! You’re a real person? Noooo, it can’t be. I looked at your LinkedIn profile and you’re…. you’re… edu-ma-cated! Hey, by the way, how am I not in your blogroll? I KNOW you roll like that. LOL!

    • I AM a real person…and I know YOU know better than to let any letters after my name fool you. Just like nobody ever said alcohol makes you smart, graduate school doesn’t either. You are in my Blogroll. I just really haven’t added anyone really since you joined the Tribe. I DO roll like that and thank you for letting me know. Best!

  8. Well, well, well…. a face 🙂 🙂 🙂
    I will make sure to keep my award nominations to myself and not share with you:)
    (smile) joking… duly noted and filled 🙂 🙂
    Greatly appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog 🙂

  9. Kij0 on my blog roll now

  10. We M.S.Ed.s have to have an alter ego, for Pete’s sake (okay, for your sake, but I share it…move over). Thanks for the link that helps me feel professionally validated in using all those letters after my real name among cohorts who only use MA or MS. Congrats on all your awards! Far Side rocks…
