There are many reasons I thought it would be cool to keep a blog, and there are many reasons I don't keep a blog.

     Really, I got nothing. I could rabbit on about this or that, but, really, I got nothing ["Rabbit" = Cockney rhyming slang for "talk" = "Rabbit and Pork, rhymes with Talk" if you're talking like Dick Van Dyke in "Mary Poppins" anyway].

    But I feel it's only fair to drop a note to say, "Uh, I got nothing," as a way of just sorta passing you in the hall, and I nod and go "Yo" and raise my cup of coffee to ya. And then back to my office.

    Brings to mind an old joke about Finns ...

    One day two friends, Jukka and Pekka, meet after ten years apart, and they go to a sauna in the woods.

    They drink vodka in silence for a couple of hours. Then Jukka asks: “So, Pekka, how are things?”

    Pekka says nothing, he just grunts.

    They continue drinking for another couple of hours. Then Jukka asks: “Family okay?”.

    At that point, Pekka glowers at Jukka and says: “Did we come here to talk, or did we come here to drink?”
