JC Points-your big chance
Saying for the day: The fun is not in the winning but in the trying to win.
I am going to add to the ever increasing meaningless point systems that exist on the net.
You know you can collect MYpoints and HIpoints and Epoints. All of these points are given to you for doing something and the points when collected don’t do much.
The fun is in the collecting.
Well I am adding a new point system.
It is JC points, This stands for John’s Comment points and the JCs will be given to anyone who leaves a comment on my blog. One point or more for every comment.
Just think of the points you can rack up.
I will also have a featured link and if you leave a comment on that blog that includes the words Dr. John I will give you another five JC points.
Now these points will be worth absolutely nothing.
But just think of the fun of collecting them.
Every once in a while I will give away things like a saffron bun, blog explosion credits, a funny doctor’s degree on real parchment. We will put your name into a bucket as many times as you have JC credits and draw a name. The more credits the better chance you have of winning.
Of course since these prizes aren’t worth much the JCs still aren’t worth much and since most people won’t win they are really worth very little or nothing. The fun is in the collecting.
The only prize of value is the saffron bun since I need an armored car to bring the saffron home in. Saffron is worth more per ounce than gold.
In any case leave a comment and start collecting JC points.
Oh and since today is leave a comment Monday we will make every comment worth two points. (Only one comment per person per day please.)
I reserve the right to give more than one point for really great comments.
The JC link for today is Jafabrit Remember that if you leave a comment on that blog containing the words Dr. John you get 5 JC points.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my backyard– Eino took a trip over to Dirty River and the Happy Days Nursing Home to visit Gus Makela. Gus was the Mayor of Pigeon Falls from 1950 to 1962. He’s 93 years old. Eino wanted to ask what he could remember about the Charter and the Constitution. Gus said that when he was Mayor every council member had a copy of the Constitution and there was a pile on the table as you came into city hall. In the middle of his term the Constitution was revised and a copy was sent to Lansing. The entire Constitution was printed in the weekly paper at that time (The Birdseed) . Well at least we know there was a constitution.
Eino got all the council members together and told them if there were that many copies around in 1960 there must be one left that somebody didn’t throw away. So he has everybody going through attics and old chests looking for a copy. So far they have had no luck.
Another dead pigeon showed up this morning. It looks like it was drowned. Pigeon was put in the same place but I guess Eino’s watcher must have fallen asleep because he didn’t see who dumped it.
Despite the crisis plans are going ahead for the big Pigeon Days celebration in August. The committee is looking for a celebrity to head up the parade. It will be hard to top Rodney McDonald who came last year.
One last bit of news there seems to have been a break in at the museum yesterday but they can't seem to figure out what if anything was taken.
Well Alex and I got the river on the layout working and we let it run all day without any trouble. A couple of kids stopped to look at the layout. They were from Iron Mountain. they really liked it. Betty took the grandkids swimming in the afternoon and they seemed to have really enjoyed it. I painted a couple of roads for the layout and then ran some trains. Well I need a breathing treatment.
