Is this going to be about biscuits?
No. I wanted to choose a name that was memorable, distinctive, and fun. There was also a reference to “biscuitheads” in a Homestar Runner cartoon, and I’ve not been able to get the phrase out of my head. I do like biscuits – especially if they are smothered in white gravy… Mmm…. But, no, discussions about biscuits will be minimal.
Ok, then, what is this about?
Well, let me answer that with this: I really wanted to get a forum out there to discuss what’s on my mind and my life, and I wanted to get away from the big service providers for various reasons. Some of them I like, some I don’t, but I can’t assume that I will be with any of them forever. That, and I didn’t want a brand name tied to an ISP. If I decide to spawn off another namespace for my more professional ideas, I will follow the same formula.
That said, this space will be for me to post my ideas about religion (gasp!), politics (Gasp! Gasp!), personal discoveries (what?), as well as some other ideas that come to me along the way.
You know, this site doesn’t look all that fancy or professional. What’s up with that?
I’ll admit right off the bat, I’m not a professional web designer. I’m trying to get a better feel for the skill, but that’s way down on the list. I have a job in a vaguely-related field, a growing family, and everything else I like to do. Now, I may even try things that will bring the entire site down, too, so be prepared. Actually, that will hurt me more than it will hurt you…
Seriously, what about the biscuits?
I’m not here to talk about biscuits. Get over it.
In a previous blog, you mentioned something about contributing to “information pollution.” Is that what you intend to do here?
Gosh, I hope not. While there will be some “throwaway” material posted from time to time, my hope is that someone may come along and find something here that makes them think a little bit more about some things. A secondary goal would be to make you smile from time to time. I don’t intend to solve any of the world’s problems – that would require a domain name with more gravitas.
So you’re going to post your personal journal out here, then?
Not really. I may post some personal info from time to time, and there may be some heartfelt stuff making to the page, but I do need to keep a substantial amount of info private for obvious reasons. I’m not doing this for therapy.
Do you prefer buttermilk biscuits or cornbread biscuits?
Actually, I don’t consider cornbread to be a legitimate ingredient… Wait… No biscuit talk! Anyway, welcome one and all! If you enjoy what you see here, please let me know. Until then…
