A Blog catechism

Most religions have a guide when you join called a catechism. It seems to me that bloggers need a catechism. So I have taken on the highly important task of writing one.
Saying for the day: At the very center of the universe is a blog.

A Catechism for Bloggers

What is a blog?
A blog is a hole in the space time continuum into which people dump their inmost thoughts or their out most thoughts.

What causes this to occur?
A force called though other forces also contribute.

Why is a blog a good thing.
Because a blog keeps us from hurting friends , neighbors, children, and elected officials by dumping out negative thoughts into cyber space. Our President is still alive because much of the negative energy directed at him has been so dumped. (Better than shooting him)

Does a blog have a positive side?
Yes. It allows people to share jokes, cartoons, and the funny stuff that keeps popping into their heads.

What does a blog require after having been read?
Every good blog requires a comment from the reader. Failure to leave a comment results in very bad karma and a negative rift in the universe. ( Negative rifts may be responsible for global warming and the reappearance of dragons.)

Are there any other positive effects of blogging.
Yes. Blogs keep retired, useless, old men out of their wife’s hair unless the wife also takes up blogging. ( This causes a rift in the local universe and
spousal warming not to mention house dragons.)

Should everyone blog?
No. But everyone should leave comments on blogs particularly on the blog of the good and gracious Dr. John. ( This mends the rift in the universe and causes very good karma to pour upon the earth)

News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my backyard--Nothing going on with the Rabbit, the dragon, or the pigeons so its back to Nancy’s for news.
Nancy says the wedding party has hired Lori Linna from Green Bay to take the wedding pictures. She is coming in on Thursday to avoid the problems she had last year. She will be staying with the Jupolas until the Sunday evening train. Eino is trying to convince Pete to take a few days off and come along. Then they can do a little fishing and maybe some white rabbit chasing.
There is a rumor that Pastor Marvel is considering a call to a different parish. He has been the Pastor at Last Lutheran Church for some twenty six years and people just thought he’d stay forever. Lutheran pastors don’t usually stay that long. Of course at this stage its just a rumor.
The local restaurant ,Bofs Place, has new menu’s. They are really fancy . You know just like in the big city. They have new prices too, just like in the big city. Breakfast there costs more than at Denny’s. I really liked the old menu better.
Of course we can always go to Nancy’s and get a cup of coffee for $.50.

Today's Link:-Ginger's Mom & ... Remember to put Dr. John in the comment so you don't miss out on those JCPOINTS. See your point total here .
Have begun work on a mind numbing ( if your mind numbs easy) blow your socks off ( if you have very loose fitting socks) new JCPOINTS contest starting next Monday. It will run alongside of the regular contest and make you wish you had many more JCPOINTS ( as if every one didn't already wish that). Remember the next chance to load up with points is the marathon on the first Wednesday in August. You can blog, blog, blog and earn, earn, earn.
We worked hard today. Lori, Betty , and I took on the basement. We got rid of bags of garbage, We put stuff aside for a yard sale. We boxed stuff to take to Neenah. We have too much stuff. But we did get about half of the main basement room done. You can see the fireplace now. The letter that says we have been pre approved for the loan came today so that is taken care of. Tomorrow my daughter will be back from her conference and we can plan our next move. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Does the dumping of negative thought into the universe by blogs have anything to do with the negative rift of not leaving a comment? Are there two negative forces out there?

Dr. John, thank you for the Blog Catechism. Another thing blogging isd good for is urging me to get out of bed early and start my cyber day -- even in the middle of my vacation!

you are hillarious! thank you for the catechism, it is one of those things that i didn't know i need it until i saw it and now can't imagine life
Lori Linna to take the wedding pictures! Well, that is the wedding of all weddings. I hear she is an amazing photographer. Great job in hiring her i say. I hope Mr. Peter can join in the fun too. Just the rabbit chasing part sounds like loads of fun.

Don't you just love the way some restaurants work. Same quality of food, same ambiance but more pricey food to pay for the new menus, oh dear...thank goodness for Nancy's place..
I'm so behind in my points. I'm so behind. I'll never catch (hello Catch) up...yikes...Marathon, i missed the marathon..i hope i can make up points in the next.

You got a fun game going on here. I think we are all having fun and genuinenly trying to have the most points possible..

I hope you are doing well with all this extra work for the move.
Take care. Hug Betty for me (i remember you don't like hugs except from Betty), i know she must be very busy. Read you tomorrow.

Well I hope the service is better at Bofs than at Dennys. We waited an hour for our food there the other day.

Is Betty okay? She has not blogged or commented in a awhile.
