    Default Are there any other bloggers out there?

    I was wondering if there were any other bloggers out there? If you don't know what a blog is it is a web log or journal. Maybe you are familiar with Mark Nobles blog at http://nobleview.com/tumororlater/. This is basically where I found out about this and got the idea to do it myself. I have decided to do the first one about my family and myself. I might decide to branch off and do one about my career I am not sure yet. You can go to www.blogger.com and they will host a blog for you for free. It is very user friendly also. If I can do it then you can too. My blog is http://www.thefleitzfamily.blogspot.com/. I saw the thread on the forums that is basically a meet and greet and this would be a great way of doing that. Let me know what you think and if you need any help or have any questions I would be glad to help.

    I used to blog, but unfortunately I broke one of my wooden shoes.
    I used to get some ferocious blisters too.

    Post Whoops....another typo.

    Darn typos keep confusing me....

    Boogers are mucus (myoo-kuss). Mucus is the thin, slippery material that is found inside your nose. Many people call mucus snot. Your nose makes nearly a cupful of snot every day. Snot is produced by the mucous membranes in the nose, which it moistens and protects.

    When you inhale air through your nose, it contains lots of tiny particles, like dust, dirt, germs, and pollen. If these particles made it all the way to the lungs, the lungs could get damaged and it would be difficult to breathe. Snot works by trapping the particles and keeping them in the nose.

    After these particles get stuck inside the nose, the mucus surrounds them along with some of the tiny hairs inside the nose called cilia. The mucus dries around the particles. When the particles and dried-out mucus clump together, you're left with a booger!

    Boogers can be squishy and slimy or tough and crumbly. In fact, boogers are a sign that your nose is working properly.

    Good analysis NJFFSA, technically speaking. I guess you made years long studies and testings.

    About typos, what about glasses? I wear often.

    Default New Blog

    I just started a new unofficial blog about the past, present, and future of the Roanoke Fire-EMS department where I am a Lieutenant. You can view it at www.roanokefirefighters.blogspot.com. I viewed the blogs that you all have posted on this thread and they are interesting. I think that it is a neat way of letting people know a little bit about you.

    And it even gives several others a comical thread to talk about clogging and picking there noses. That is really neat guys. I appreciate the information NJFFSA16.

    On a serious note:

    BLOGS or Web Logs, are only as interesting as those who post the information. The enjoyment you may obtain from reading blogs is directly proportional to the amount of interest in the topic.

    Try tBLOG on for size. There are links to a GaZillion Blog sites.

    What makes a BLOG different than DIARY?

    Only thread I could find on this subject that stayed on topic long enough (ie. more than 4 posts).
