The Glorious Return!

To those who read my blog, it may have seemed like I fell off the face of the Earth.  Well, I did.  I hitched a ride on the turtle that carries the planet on the elephants on its back, and let me tell you, turtles are slow creatures.  Even giant space turtles.  That's what took me so long.

Some very interesting things out there in space, you know...

So I have a lot of catching up to do.  A big long list.  For example, I missed writing about New Year's.  One of my resolutions was to commit to a schedule for this blog.  Guess what?  I didn't.

I was also going to write about, for anyone resolving to eat healthier this year, how salt isn't as unhealthy as it's often made out to be.  Well, January 1st was 25 days ago, and I have no idea what those articles were.  I'll find them.

What's happened since I've been gone...?  Ah, yes!  SOPA finally got the attention it deserves, and the people of America -- nay, the WORLD! -- secured a temporary victory.  Unfortunately for me, all of the attention SOPA was getting eclipsed the attention given to a different bill, which, as luck would have it, spelled out the same acronym.  SOPA, or the "Salt On Pretty much Anything" bill was lost amid a flurry of protest.  I'm actually surprised that it didn't go through, considering so many people on Capitol Hill are old and salty (not to be confused with old salts).


Not just any who -- Cindy Lou Who!
But actually, anywho, this post isn't terribly substantial.  It's just an indication that, well, I'm back.

So there.


  1. Glad to hear you're back! And glad that SOPA was fought off! (both of them! Ha!)

    Can't wait to hear about peoples misconseptions about salt being unhealthy!

  2. Really nice blog. I had no idea about the other SOPA. HAHA I'm interested to hear how salt isn't all that bad... My doctor strongly disagrees when it comes to my high blood pressure.

  3. Welcome back!
