This too was Dugg by …


I have continued blogging at http://stanosheck.com/ so, if you are looking at what is interesting me these days, please join me there. I have been blogging there since 2003 and going non-stop since then. This was just a short jaunt of hot-diggity news, which I now post in full directly to my blog at http://orthodoxscouter.blogspot.com/ instead. I look forward to seeing you there.


The Doggs at Digg removed the “Blog This!” link on Dugg stories. That was all this blog ever was, a collection of my Dugg stories, so I kiss this, my only WordPress.com blog, goodbye. I will continue to work on a WordPress.com hosted site called http://AntlerPicasso.com which is currently a work in process for the Antler Picasso of Earth-Friendly, Enviromentally Sustainable, Renewable Resource, Green Furniture made of annual antler sheds of deer, elk, moose, and their ilk. Be sure to check out that site after its official launch in August 2009!

During the violent riot by 150 workers, one of the cops protecting us came up to me. ‘We’re hungry, we are thinking about going for lunch,’ he said. My boss was speechless.
