A classic Pink Floyd song (yep, I grew up in paisley shirts and bellbottoms) asks:

Do you think that I know something you don’t know
What do you want from me?
If I don’t promise you the answers would you go
What do you want from me?

So, I’ve been thinking, what do you want from this blog? How can I best serve you? Will Nehru jackets ever come back in style? Thanks for taking this survey. Your answers will help steer the direction and discussion here in 2009.

Peace and love!


Thanks for your kind and compassionate comments! And for those who wrote that they don’t always agree with me, no problem. I don’t always agree with me!

“Encouragement” and “Humor” are definitely the top vote getters in my totally unscientific poll. I do need to stress more humor in my blog, but—to be honest—the past six years have sucked like a Craftsman 5 HP shop vac: career catastrophies, financial failures, physical challenges, family crises, etc.

So, on my blog in 2009, I’m resolving to drown out life’s 5 HP sucking sound with encouraging laughter. Vrooom! Ha! Ha! Ha!
