    Takeshi is amazing! The google street view is exactly that picture!


  14. Paco:

    Ed,

    The pics are hard (not for Takeshi), but that's the fun! I know for me, ever since the switch to "Star-Advertiser" its not as easy to find the blogs. Like today, it wasn't in that box on the main page so I assumed that you didn't post anything. I guess to be safe I should just go to the blog screen. Plus, your posts seem to be coming out later in the day. I don't know if that is because you are so busy and post later or if its the web guys at the website. Either case I try my best to come by every Wednesday!

    :D :D :D :D :D Good After Lunchtime Errrr-One!!! :D :D :D :D :D

    ... hey Ed ... 33 comments?!! ... not bad, actually ... and don't judge your blog by the number of comments ... I mean, you must be still ranked in the Top 23 of StarAdvertiser blogs, right??? ... ;)

    ... we're still here ... but possibly many still got issues with the new StarAdvertiser ... and hey, it's summer ... vacation, relaxing, whatever ... and if they're like me ... just got slammed with so much other stuff ...

    ... and even if it was just me following your blog ... just one measly reader/commenter ... would you stop??? ... I hope not ... and then you could narrow your topics to stuff we really want to talk about ... yeah, you know what I mean ... the stuff that fills our imagination ... keeps us up at night ... gets our blood pumping ... yeah, that's right ...

    ... world economics, molecular theory and watching grass grow ... yeah, bayBEE!!!

    ... Have a Good One Everyone!!! ...


  23. rayboyjr:

    ... and your WIHIES is just too much for me, nowadays ...

    ... I can't even figure out what or where your picture is ... let alone having to answer the 20 or so questions you toss at us for points ...

    ... remember now ... you still got readers like me ... with juvenile minds ... ok maybe just me ... but all your questions ... where, when, what color, who ... gots me all confused ...

    ... I can't guess an answer for even one question ... make me feel like a failure before I start ...

    ... nah nah nah nah nah ... it's fine ... I just regressed in this game ...
