I’m a little exited about being able to offer some prizes for the caption contests next week. I’ll try to come up with some good photos. Should I be the sole judge of the best comment or should I let you guys decide?
I have to cut my grass today because it’s supposed to rain the next couple of days. Then, I’m off to a BBQ with friends this afternoon.
My wife finally got her Yamaha 650 back on Wednesday, (after 3 weeks in the shop) so we’re going to take it out out a test ride and see if the lights work right. We’re riding out to St. Charles to watch our granddaughter play soccer. Then for a ride around the area before heading back home. Beautiful weather here in St. Louis most of the week.
We’re also in the planning stages of our trip in 3 weeks through Oklahoma City and into Texas. Then we’ll ride the coast over to New Orleans before heading back up I-55 to home. That trip should last 9 – 10 days. More on it later.
I finally got done with the last project I was working on, a Sex Trivia Night (last night). I’m glad that’s all done. With that and the BABBQ going on I’ve been swamped the last few weeks. I feel like I’ve been neglecting B&P and the other sites. I’m behind in my email and haven’t been scouring as much as I should be. But, as I said, I have these projects behind me now and can focus more on the sites.
I’ve also been ‘down in my back’ most of this week, so that put a damper on things. I didn’t do anything unusual except for carrying soda and beer for the BABBQ last week. The back problem didn’t show up until Tuesday, so I question whether it is related to that, 5 days later. My back does seem to feel a little better this morning.
A few things I’ll be working on: I’m going to add a FAQ page to the site that will answer frequently asked questions. Things like ‘How do I put my picture with my comment?’ and ‘Why can’t I see my comment?’ If you have any ideas of FAQ’s that I should ass use I’d appreciate hearing about them.
I recently ran across some information about chat software (or plugins) to allow readers to communicate together in real time. I’ll see if that’s something that will work here.
I’m also going to be looking for a new spam filter plugin. I’m seeing an increase in the amount of spam hitting me the last few weeks.
Well, we’re less than a week away from the BABBQ here in St. Louis. We’re busy in the planning stages and have some fun things planned. I’m looking forward to meeting those who are coming. For those procrastinators, there’s still time to register. I’ll do my best to get a shirt for you, but I can’t guarantee one.
I’m also working on another project due the weekend after the BBQ so I’ll be pretty busy this week. I still plan to post every day, but probably not as many posts per day.
Also, I’m looking for ideas for questions to ask the readers in the B&P neighborhood. The one that Krisgo suggested a few days ago got a good response. Someone sent me a good suggestion for a question a week or so ago. I tried to find it and couldn’t. So, if you have an idea for a question to ask your neighbors here, send it to email@example.com. Please put “Question suggestion” in the subject of the email.
