Got this e-mail from a relative of mine:

Note, please don't forget to enter Adi's contest.

You are permitted to change or update your answers.

Got this e-mail from a relative of mine:

Yes, the jokes have started:

The only person who can beat Tiger Woods with a club is his wife.

What is the difference between a car and a golf ball? Tiger can drive a ball 400 yards.

Tiger crashed into a fire hydrant & a tree. He couldn't decide between an iron and a wood.

Perhaps Tiger should use a driver.

This is the first time Tiger ever failed to drive 300 yards.

This will teach him to play a round.

And there are more...Love, (the relative)

Anniversary Post Newsletter — MidWeek Blues — What is this thing?

Note, please don't forget to enter Adi's contest.
Scroll down or click here. You have until Next Sunday.
You are permitted to change or update your answers.

Today is the start of my fifth year of blogging. I have just completed four full years.

I will do three things in this post. First I need to do a MidWeek Blues picture. Second will be a statistical update. This will be followed by a short evaluation of areas of which I am concerned. Some will affect you, dear reader.

MidWeek Blues:
What is it?
Hints: (1) Don't kick it, you'll hurt your foot (2)
It isn't a rock or stone

Answers will be given, and shown on my next week's MidWeek Blues post.

Total Posts: 2616 (for the eight blogs)
Total Hits: 83,512 (many are from Google, my priority there is fairly decent) Total Comments: 12,386 (Yahoo is not cooperating for me to tell you how many are my own, I have left several.)
YouTube Viewers: 19,492 (views for my 20 YouTube videos)
Adi is the most popular, on posts and comments and on YouTube

Active Blogs & YouTube
Jim's Little Blog (1439 posts, 56,047 hits)
Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place (566 posts, 12,603 hits)
Ask Dr. Jim (blog) (80 posts, 8,356 hits)
Jim1Jim1 (YouTube) (20 videos, 19,492 views)

Areas of concern

Friend list: I need to update my friends lists. I have three categories which are '... Friends ...', 'Haven't Heard From These Lately', and 'The Bone Yard'.
Very soon I will move a bunch to the lower two categories (The Bone Yard has invisible links) and add some new Friends.

Mrs. Jim annual performance evaluation: Time is now. She has been an excellent wife but these things still need to be done. If she reads it she might find out how good I think she is. (I hold her on a pedestal.)

Consolidation: Every year I think about having just one blog. Right now basically I have the three active ones and it seems to be working.

Neglected areas:
1. Ask Dr. Jim (blog) needs to be updated at least once a week. It hasn't been nearly that often lately.
2. Jim1Jim1 (YouTube) needs some new videos. Most times I make them pertinent to a current blog post.

A minor concern: People believe everything that I say. Not all my poems are true. Please don't believe every word I write there as gospel, some is poetic fiction.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did. .
Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE, you don't have to write.

Adi said: "We need titles here" -- Sunday night / Monday morning -- Adi can play in the grass

We will run a little contest here. Here are the simple rules:

1. Give each picture a title.

2. Vote for your favorite pose and tell why. (Adi didn't suggest doing this, I did.)

3. After about a week or so I will 'close the contest' and either name the winners or get a vote going.

4. There won't be any tangible prizes.

I am working on my fourth anniversary post for Tuesday. If anyone has any suggestions, please don't be bashful.
