Wee!Gee! now available in 4 flavors,an extremists desire fulfilled and things,,they are a changing,
,,things,,they are a changing,,but not the way board life goes or my pc situation so far.
Thanks for clicking in.
Since the tally broke the 5000 mark there's been a steady decline. Allthough the pg vw counter has not dropped below 4000 they have dipped into the high 4100's.I came into this month with 4672 and the vw total when I came on to post this was 103 showing a sofar high of 4179.
Even though I have been astounded that I've received as many veiws as I have been getting with virtually no new stuff in so long,,the fact I've gotten so many lately,,let alone 5000+,,just blows me away!
I have to say,,thank you,thank you,thank you,,and I would repeat that several times,,but after doing it in those previous posts I realize now it just looks,,at best,,silly,,and at worst,,sorta like disengenuous overkill,,so instead I will just go ahead and give you folks part 30 of Wee!Gee!
Yeah,,I finally got another one out of me.
I thought I was going to go ahead and bang out 31,,but that didn't happen.
But,,,I did manage to get the first 29 parts,the intro,,and a forward into paper form and make it available,,in the same unedited form as you find online here at my site,,for purchase online.(If anyone wants to start collecting,these are gonna be the 'trial',,and therefore,,limited editions.~hint~hint~wink~wink~smile~)
There are currently 3 forms ready.They are not the finalized versions.One is a typical 'perfect bound' paperback,,one is a larger formatted 'spiral' bound form,,not unlike a school notebook,,and the third is like a pamphlet,,'saddlestitch' bound,,the size of a paperback with 50 pages.
The paperback and large form have the first 29 parts(Volume 1).The small booklet has the intro thru part 5 and the rest will follow in an 'episodic' serial format which means that depending on how many 'parts' will fit the 50pg restriction I am currently unsure how many 'parts' may be in any particular episode.
They are,essentially just the results of the process I had to go thru to figure out how to get them properly into a form to publish using the service.
That involved converting the text from the html pages online (since I no longer had access to them in the pc they were wrote in) into text in this pc, (which meant I had to download them using a dialup connection) then into pdf form,then uploading them to the publishing port.(again,,using dialup,,aaargh!!)
To do that,,since I do not have a pdf writer prog,,I first sought out an online converting service and found several.
Since that turned into something not doable,,or maybe I should say,inadequate for my needs since I wound up with graphics from the webpages,,including the banner ads as well as the text and they would only be printed in black and white,so,,well,,I didn't want that even for rough editions,,and it made the pdf file's HUGE,I had to back up and try something I was reluctant to do,,go find a downloadable free converter prog.
After searching around a bit,,I found several to try.After waiting much more than a bit for them to download(dialup,aargh!) I wound up using pdf995 and was quite pleased with the results,,so far.
Of course,,the publishing port required cover graphics,,so I had to make and fit those.(That's why there are more than one version of covers right now.)
Anyone want to check out those progs I found,,I will be posting links to them on one of the links pages I have later.
I will do some better ones later.Ideally by hand,,with paper,penils and or inks.(I am much better with that stuff than I can ever be with any programs I've met sofar)Those will be scenes or what have you from the story itself most likely.
And even tho it may only be doable in black and white with these folks,,,I do believe I will be making an illustrated version later.Yeeehaaaw!!A graphic novel!
All this is just prepping me for turning out the novel that I posted a piece from in an earlier blog entry in a professional manner right off the bat when I get it finished.
Now,,THAT story will most likely make a much better graphic novel than Wee!Gee!,,more straight up action and different visuals will be involved.
That same place that offers the 'publishing service',,CafePress, also allows for providing apparel and merchandise with custom imprints online.
I've had the set up going for a while(01) but was only using it to show clients,,in person,,what either I could do for them,,or what they could do themselves,,and/or what the items they wanted would look like(as a visual regardless of using cpress or another) and had intended to eventually make up a bunch of hi quality designs in a laid out and organized fashion to offer thru there and use it as an online department for my biz R&D Studios(cc&ss).
But since I have the book thing ready now and a certain Excite board poster wanted a certain design for a t design that many another citizen may wish to own,,I decided to open it up to all those folks who may come through here now.
Mainly,,right now,,there are items with our logos and pieces from the logos on them.Yet there is more than one section and a 'nook' for the book,,and future ones too.
As a matter of fact,,one section is named for,,or in honor of,if you prefer,,and I just like the name,,the poster I mentioned.
That poster goes by the nic 'psychotiki' but since I really only like calling folks I think are psycho 'psycho' I tend to refer to the poster,,a she,,as just 'tiki'.
Yep,,the section is called,,The Tiki Room and is intended to fullfill an extremists desires.
Okay,,I just really did that 'cause she has a pretty little puss.
And I only know she does because she posted pics of it on her excite profile.
~winkin' & smirkin' at tiki while wondering how many will vist her profile page now~
To get to those places and see the main pages pictured items,click ~> here <~
Ahhh,,speaking of the board I've come to refer to as Excitesovainia (t's available soon),,that place hasn't changed.Well,not for the better anyway.Like my p.c. situation,,it works,,but is frustrating,,needs major improvements and ultimately leaves a lot to be desired.
What do I mean?
Well,,for me at least,,a conversation can only occur when two parties are involved,,(I'm not counting when your 'nagger' chimes in,,that's just you,,for most folks. ~yikes~),,so when I ask questions,,pertinent to the topic,as 'counterpoint' or that grew out of the discussion,,I do expect a reasonablely intelligent,not very insane,honest minded person to respond with at least an attempt at an answer.
And as far as I can tell,,that's what a conversation,,and a dicussion or debate is to the vast majority of folks in this world.
Yet,,for me,,on that board,,that rarely occurs.
Here's some examples of what I am talking about:
~> Meanwhile,,back on the boards,, <~
(Oh,,and you'll see the light I left on for nybrit through that link too.)
Most of the time,,it seems to me that people simply have no regard for the words that they type after they utter them.
Heck,,in real 'offline' life as well for that matter,it isn't restricted to that board by any means.And it isn't exactly a new phenomena either.So that means it isn't a straight symptom of MMS but a widespread characteristic of the general population.
I suppose it's much easier on those kinds of folks offline since once you speak it,,it's gone.Online it can be ccp'ed.
I wonder if our public educational system had anything to do with that?
(You'd think more would at least understand how the words they type don't go away like those spoken)
I'm sure many would argue it is the 'entertainment medias' influence causing it.
(Of course,,the arguement could be nade that IT does what it does because most of those that are involved with or run it are also products of the aforementioned system.)
Yet,,we all could do without as much of it being present no matter where it originates,,right?
Personally,,I think the world would be a whole lot better off with a whole lot less of that being in it.
Considering that sort of question among the many types found in life inspired this section,,check it out:
(*At least the man has those 3 things correct.
I wonder if he applies them to himself?
Only time will tell more than what we have seen allready in that regards,won't it?*
I'm only answering my own questions because I'm mono-bloggin' here ya'll,,not having a discussion.~smile~)
IF ya wanna say something tho,,feel free to ccp my word's and take them to the Excite boards,,my boards or this comment form here at this site,,your email service or you can even tickle that little thingie down at the right corner of this post and let me know what ya think or want to say.(Or what ya may want a shirt or other item to say or show as far as that goes.IOW,,'buy my butter'.~smile~)
Regardless of all that,,thanks for visiting this time,and,,,
Ya'll come back,now,y'hear?!

5000 pg vws,,old pc back down,dial up dialed up,suki gets a head,alas,,no wee!gee!
That’s a gong a bonging for those who helped push my pg vw count up and over the 5000 mark!
I logged in on 4/9 at 11:04p and the count was standing at 5016 with 320 showing for yesterday.
When I logged back in to edit and post this at 3:54a on 4/10,,the vw counter said,,,363 for yesterday and 5030 sofar.
Thank you all very,very much!
(And a special welcome to the new ones I know have surfed in recently.I hear you folks have been enjoying Wee!Gee!)
I would say ‘a round for everyone’,,, and pass out a few Harbin beers (even if I had to use these bottles ) but I can’t,,so,,here’s a small attempt to show a little appreciation to you folks.Click here.
If you don’t see something that suits you for those prices,,let me know and maybe I will work something up for you.
Yeah,,that would mean you have to contact me.You can do that using the methods here at this site,,,or surf thru the ‘click here’ link on that page or the link under the logo icon on the left nav bar.
Again,,thank you, thank you,thank you,thank you!!!!!!
That pc I said came back to life ‘thankfully’ lasted long enuff for me to get a bunch of images out and up online so I can get them back via dial-up so I can use that other old pc to continue using them to make graphics for this project and others.
I wound up dealing with the transfer over that weekend I said I intended to write more Wee!Gee! during.
That means there isn’t any new Wee!Gee! parts for you folks.
Yet,,the laptop I mentioned,a Compaq Presario,(and the other pc an old Gateway2000) can go online,,,with dial up ~wince~ so I can still do some stuff besides surf.It’s got a few decent progs in it and I am typing this on it.I can get online and ccp text to make blog entries with no problem.It’s disc drive is dissed and it’s floppy is a flop but it can upload & download.
The one I’m going to try to use for working images in is also old and it doesn’t have a USB port so it’s limited to dial up.But,,I dug out another modem,,ordered a cable (I got it already) and will try getting that one ‘off the e-dirt road’ later after I post this.
It has more than it’s ‘fair share’ of problems,,but it’s got two drives, plenty of mem and reasonably fast enuff processors so I can make it do if I can get it to go with that workaround.
Of course,,if it works on that one,,it’ll work for the lap to.
The first one,,the HPPavillion worked fine then blanked out and wouldn’t power up just like it did before.Maybe it will come back up later.I will,,at the least,,try a new battery before I officially play taps for it and put it in the ‘resurrect later’ stack.
The one I can go online with,,an E-Machine(!),,is essentially no more than a web browser now.It seems like IE replaced the OS.
Can IE take over OS’s?
Did it? How did it do that? What’s the best way to fix the problem?
I do not know,,yet.But,,I’m still working on it.And won’t quit till they all crap out,get fixed or I get a new one.
Which wouldn’t stop me from continuing to try to fix them,of course.
If I can get the GW and/or CP usable at speed then I might try installing WinME over it’s 98.Allthough if the missing file isn’t included,and there isn’t a newer or different version in ME then I will be back to where I was with that pc.
Okay,,enuff tech talk,,as it were,,and on to Suki,,my youngest pineapple plant.
Even though I have been lax about swapping her to a bigger pot,,she has developed a nice little apple and has been kicking out those pretty purple flowers for about a week now.
It seems like the flowers pop out in waves and cycle until all have bloomed in an every other one kind of fashion,all over from top to bottom.
Her mother,Arnie is doing okay,,but no new pineapple yet.I get the impression that she may skip this season.Her pot has lost enuff soil to have exposed the roots a bit.Maybe doing what I did with her mama last year may help her a bit.
Granny Frances-Jeanne is alive and well,,but getting old looking,AGAIN. I think since her pot has lost some soil again that I will try adding dirt ,, again.
After that,,and a period of waiting to see,I may take her out in the field and bury her up to her neck next to the flow well.
What better way to retire a good pineapple plant could one come up with?(if I owned that piece of property I believe I would have a slew of pineapples going)
When I figure out a way to deal with converting files I have now to pdf’s or retype what I have into a pdf prog,I am going to be offering how ever much of Wee!Gee! I have written by then in bookform.Available online.
I don’t know yet if they will be ‘adequately edited’ for spelling and punctuation but I will be offering them for ‘as cheap as possible’.I hope a few of those sets of eyes coming through here will be willing to ‘hep a feller out durin’ a recession’ and perhaps purchase a copy for yourself and maybe one for a friend or enemy.You could read yours and throw it at someone,too.If they ask why ya did that,,you can show them the new shirt ya got from the author to go with the book.~wink~wink~
That’s it for now,,I have to ‘dial-up’ my blog and post this and then see about getting up to speed with what I pay good money to ATT to use.
THANX AGAIN for pushing my pg vw count over 5000.I feel honored,flattered and humbled all at once.
(IOW,,I’m tickled plum purply pink over it~smile~)
Thanx for stopping in this time and,,,
Ya’ll come back now,y’hear?!?

Steady peeps,,a pc resuscitated,,and Wee!Gee! continues
When I logged into make this post,,the pg vw counter was showing 118 for yesterday and 4591 for a sofar this month total.The current high number for this month is 4671.
I have kept getting around 100 pg vws per day whether I post new material or not.
Thank you folks.
That's a thanks to those that visit and those that tell others about it and those that visit after they are told about it.
Thank you again,,and some more.
I am humbled and flattered.
I do know there have been a few new viewers,,some transfers from across the pond even.
And recently,,at least one who hasn't seen me in a while that just found out about my site.
(She calls me stud!~wink~wink~you know who you are,Patty,,oops,,did I type that?)
But I do have a little good news.
I'm a bit better off in the pc department and can write more of Wee!Gee!
The last pc that went down is now back up.
I do not know.I dragged it out,,,set it up,,restarted it a few times,,and it's okay now.
How long will it stay that way?
God knows,,I don't.
Yet,,I do know I will take advantage of it this weekend and see about a part,,or two?,,of Wee!Gee! getting writ and posted.
(I'm rather anxious to see what's going to happen myself!)
So,,for those that read this between now and then,,and those that read it afterward,,thanx,and,,,
Ya'll come back now,,ya'hear?!?

Peepers keep peeking,pc still crippled,suki gets a head,a new page to get you linked up and a serving of slawdawg
My apologies and thanx to the folks who have kept my pg vw counters numbers in the 4000's.
(That would include B,J and J's bro whom I had it reported to me that they were overhead having a good time reading Wee!Gee! a week or so ago.you 3 know who you and the other two are,,and who told me about it.~smile~)
I apologize for no new material,,,like Wee!Gee! or even the excite stuff in a while (allthough I have posted in there a little recently).I haven't gotten the pc matter straight and pro help (or a new one?) isn't quite financially do-able just yet.Not to mention,,,biz is up,,so spare time is down.But THAT will hasten one or the other solutions to my pc problem.
None the less:
The counter was standing at 319 pg vws for yesterday with 4517 for this month sofar.
Like I've said before,,I am amazed,,,,flattered and humbled that those are staying high without me posting squat.
Suki,,,my youngest pineapple plant (Francis-Jeannes grandaughter and Arnies daughter) has finally popped an apple which currently is beginning to kick out those beautiful purple flowers (I'm gonna try to collect some seed this time around).
I have got a links page (for external links) up.There's a bunch of links from my favs and there will be more coming.You can get there through my Favrites Links Page links found on my sites nav bar and here's a direct link :
Anyone recall an excite poster nicced kslawdawg that I have had a few exchanges with in the past?
Here's a refresher:
The Slawdawg Party
Slawdawg,,alienating the inalienable
Anyways,,,he finally got around to posting a link that I seen to his site where he lays out his 'plan' for a better America.(?)
Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow
Sounds real sky pie-y don't it?
But,,hey,,,he gets a hat tip from me since he went and put it together so whatever else might be sayable about him,,he put out the effort to put out his ideas.That makes it worth putting a link to it on my Main Fav Links pg.
I even registered for his discussion board forum,,even if he hasn't did so for mine:
RH/MC Board Forum
It ain't no biggee,tho,,,especially since no one else has either.
BUT and yet,,,you folks DO keep coming back,,,or there's a whole lot of new folks every month so,,it's all good to me.
Thank you ALL very much!
I will try to get back at Wee!Gee! ASAP,,so to catch it as fresh as possible,,,,
Ya'll come back now,y'hear!?

She's Back!A dead p.c. and a crippled laptop cramp progress,,but NOT interest.
Heck,,she's been back for a bit.
BUT,,,my 'back up' pc spazzed out on me and this one,,my back ups back up(!?!),,an old 'e-machine',,seems to have some serious malfunctions.
At first it was fine,,then,,
I went to install a few of the programs I like and wound up getting a comdlg32 error and can't open any programs.NOT even ones allready installed.
So,,that's why I haven't been posting and that's why I will be making shorter posts untill I get this straightened out since I can't write them in my pc and have to do it 'live',online,,in the blogs editor.(Of course,,I could just do a lot of saves and make big posts anyway,,knowing me,,that's probally gonna happen more than a little.)
Unfortunately,,this really puts a crimp in the process of writing more of Wee!Gee!
I have a laptop that I THOUGHT would probally work just fine,,untill I found it and tried to run an AT&T disc.It ran a few moments and then took a dump.It took an hour to get it to give me my disc back.Then I thought maybe I could use it to write in,save to a discette and load through my desktop.I still havent managed to get that discette out.
Amazingly,,,even without posting anything for a while,I still have about the same amount of traffic on this site.
In September 4432 peepers peeked,,in October there were 4160,,November showed 4176 and December racked up 4247,,even with the pg vw counter being down from the 20th to the 24th.
That brings the tally to around 65,000,,so far!
As for this month,,I had 135 yesterday with a so far high number of 4257!(Of course,,the counter may still be off from the bobble I mentioned.)
I can only say,,,"THANK YOU",,and,,,I will be getting back to it as soon as I can.
In the meantime,,I sure could use a favor or two from someone who could straighten out my pc problems.If there is anyone willing to give some advice or tips,,pleasse feel fre to post a hello in the forums I have set up.You can access them through the 'RH-MC News' link on the navbar or click here,, Mastercom Services
Like I said,,I can get online,,but I have no way to write offline and get what I write uploaded right now.
I will let you folks know how things are going in regards to more Wee!Gee!,,here,,on my blog,,so,,
Ya'll come back now,,y'hear?!

For stopping in.
For telling others about my site here.
Yeah,,it has amazed me a bit.
I haven't posted squat,,but my pg views are staying right around the 4000 mark.
My high for this month has been,,so far,,4202.Earlier today,,the 27th,,I had 87 with a so far total showing of 4098,,logging in to post this I had 96 with 4093 so far.Yeah,,it seems schizoid since,,I think,,it displays a moving 'month'.I think,maybe,,but don't really know that,,it expresses in terms of that moment of the day that you log in as 'ending' a 30 day 'month' period.All I do know is,,I allways have a highest number for each month,,and that's what I count as my 'monthly high count'.
(And JFYI,,with the so far total from this month,,I have reached over 50,000 pg vws since I started this project.At the end of last month I had a tally of 48,548 and have stayed well above the 2,500 needed to put me over that amount.)
So,,in appreciation,,I have decided to give you folks a sneak peak at the other story I have been working on along with Wee!Gee!
If you have read,,(or you wind up reading),,some of my older entries here and what I 'still' have hanging out on my front page,, http://royharbin.tripod.com ,,you may recall me mentioning another,,very different sort of piece I was working on but chose to NOT post it for free like I was Wee!Gee!.
Anyway,,here it is:
(Now,,since it IS a 'teaser' excerpt,,I will NOT give it a set up.Ya gotta just jump right on in.Heck,,I'm not even going to tell you the title,,yet.Yes,,I do have a working title,,and for simplicities sake,,you can call it 'beneath' since it is 'beneath' the level of Wee!Gee! as regards being used on this site,,or as regards it's 'level of freeness'.I fully intend to 'publish' it later,,and truly hope some folks will purchase copies of it.)
A peek beneath.
There's no back links but it will open in a new window.
Of course,,the astute amongst those who come through here will quickly realize that I am doing this in lieu of presenting something I have wrote recently,,since I haven't wrote anything on Wee!Gee! or this other story,,except work related stuff,,a little ad copy and a few 'real paper letters' in the last couple of months.
(I did manage to draw up a set of biz cards before my NOW realized,,'carpal-tunell' syndrome got kicked into gear by too much sanding on a couple of projects.I can't hardly hold a pencil for long right now.Typing burns like fire,,and I found out I can't even change a fuel pump if I can't see what I am doing since my hands and fingers are numb and when I use them,,they get to hurting really bad and everything I touch feels like 'ice cubes and razor blades'.And that is really a bad scene if'n ya can't get the local,,like right next door,,professional mechanic to do it for ya in exchange for money.And to top it off,,I seriously need to get MY van back on the road so I can do some MORE work that will keep my 'syndrome' aggravated,,,oh well,,that's enuff about that,,the money ya can make now counts,,right now.The truly bad part is,,I'm a 'multi-genre artistian' and I can't do 'fine' work when my hands are like this.That hurts my heart,,and the 'finer' part of my business offerings.)
Anyways,,I felt a desire to show you folks that I THANK YOU VERY MUCH for continuing to stop in.
And,,since I am sure new folks are showing up,,I THANK YOU people who have told a friend,,or three,,about me,my site,blog or written works.
And,,yes,,I THANK YOU new readers as well.
BTW,,in closing,,let me tell you,,you people are in my thoughts often.
Even if I ain't writing and posting here,,I wonder about all you folks who have,,and apparently continue to,,clik in.
What do I wonder?
I wonder,,what brings you here and keeps you coming back?
I am glad,,but puzzled.
What with all the other internet fare out there,,with fresh stuff all the time,,what's here you like,,or loathe,,enuff to keep stopping in?
It has to be Wee!Gee!,,right?
Afer all,,,I am pretty sure it can't simply be because I sign off all the time with,,,
'Ya'll come back now,ya'hear!?'

Getting back to it,changes,sweetness plucked,bugged,We!Gee!part 29 and the I'm missin' my wife blues.
Sorry it's been so long with no new post.
My wife went away for a few months and my schedule changed so,,my free time ain't the same and my mind is far away sitting next to her quite often.
IOW,,,I miss my wife.And that kinda makes it a bit difficult to write a tale like Wee!Gee! or post in the excite forums.
On top of that,,my dogs are affected by her absence rather strongly,,and my female is either in heat,,or being 'driven' into it by another 'beeyatch' on the block,,or in the vets kennel down the street,,so they ain't no darn help.
And I am sad to say,,I can't bong the gong for a 5000 pg vw mark either.
I AM happy to say,,the peak high was 4926 last month.
I missed it by 'THAT' much.
(No,,I have not seen the Get Smart movie.Yes,,,I did enjoy the old series.)
That does bring my total pg vw count up to 43,713,,not counting this month.Right now,,this months numbers are going down.
I had 102 yesterday and 4,477 so far.
Regardless,,Thank you folks very much.
Anyways,,for those coming for Wee!Gee!,,I kicked and slapped myself silly,,and then finished and posted part 29 a couple of days ago.
Here's the teaser thingy I have been doing:
home at last,questions,answers and explanations,things remembered,dale does the deed,mattress sandwiching the board,getting reezes pieces out from under my skin,a lovely nip nipping early arrival,schlomo sed 'no',,straight from knee valley,kitchen gangin',bringing elements together,ride ride,,who's gotta ride?,,a doob break broke,,,a gnarly digit points out a peek,,,where'd that thing go?
Wee!Gee! prt 29
Here's all of them:
(intro) (prt1) (prt2) (prt3) (prt4) (prt5) (prt6) (prt7) (prt8) (prt9) (prt10) (prt11) (prt12) (prt13) (prt14) (prt15) (prt16) (prt17) (prt18) (prt19) (prt20) (prt21) (prt22) (prt23) (prt24) (prt25) (prt26) (prt27) (prt28) (prt29)
Okay,,now,,for those interested in the pineapples I've talked about:
I picked Frances-Jeannes apple yesterday,,it is sweet,,very non acidic and juicey.
(I put some away in the freezer for when my wife gets back.)
This one did not get as big,,nor get as orange and velvety as the last one.
I even held off on plucking it hoping it would get more that way,,but evidently those little big headed ants thought she was as ripe as she needed to be since they started nibbling on her.
I sort of got peeved at them and put a little,,seriously,,a little,,pesticide in the pot,,now I hope I didn't wipe them out.
As for Arnie,,her apple is about 2 weeks behind FJ's so I ought to be plucking her soon.It too is NOT as big as FJ's first one was,,yet is a bit bigger than the one I just plucked off FJ.
Her second head is growing good.
And Suki,,she's growing fine.In about a month I think I ought to transfer her to a big pot.
Those wild grapes I have been giving TLC (Totally Lackadaisical Cultivation) to are fruiting,,but the ones I have left alone are not,,yet.
I guess that proves just a little can make a good diference.
I ain't holding my breath about them being sweeter than usual though.I'm pretty sure it will take a few seasons to actually get that to change.
And they have been colonized by some aphid herding ants,,just like the wild ones.
Next,,I have to plant the top off this apple and as soon as I'm able,,I'm gonna collect some seeds from the next fruiting,whoever that might be,,,and see how THAT goes,,or grows.
I also have some date palm seeds from a mature healthily producing tree thatI'm trying top decide what to do with.
I suppose that's all for now.
I will try to make a point of setting aside a time to write on a regular basis,,maybe I'll actually do it.
(Like a told a lady today,,even with all the traffic I'm getting,,no one is commenting.Maybe,maybe,,that would provide some added incentive for the process.Hint,hint,,do ya like it or loathe it,ya'll?)
Ya'll come back now,,ya'hear?

4000+ peeps!!A triple helping of Wee!Gee!,,Arnie grows another head,,wild grapes need TLC too,,da'Moose Morphs
,,L.Mauvais Blanc is born,,and the detrimental effects of of MMS.
(That's a gong a'bonging for you all,ya'll!)
You folks have gotten the pg vw counter to hit 4005 at 10:34p on May 9th.
And when I logged into make this post at 2:24a,,the pg vw counter was showing 114 for yesterday and 4008 for a sofar this month total.
That's only 4O short of my all time sofar total from back in the beginning of January!!
I was thinking about gushing my appreciation but then I figured it would be better to not get all that syrupy sweet stuff in my keyboard.
Seriously though,,Thank you all very very much.
Thanks to those who come through,,and say nothing,,and thanks to those who have spoken to my wife about reading 'Wee!Gee!',,and even thanks to some folks like Monsieur Elan who came,saw and asked if you folks would visit the excite boards and talk with him there,,no,,I don't get that one either,,but it happened right after infun morphed into a new nicced persona in mid thread.(Check it out here: http://thestaks.tripod.com/archives/excite/maddened_moose_morphs.html -follow the links to the thread to read the bit with him saying something about,,ya'll,,ie;the ones who read or post(?) at/on my site,,going there and conversing with him on those boards,,hey,,I'm just passing it along ya'll,,he did ask if I would.)
After that,,all I can think to say is,,,'thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you,thank you',,and ,,let's try for 5000 now,,okay?
Here's an incentive to rachet it up a notch for the ones reading along on Wee!Gee! as I write it.That is,,unless you have noticed the new links appearing instead of waiting for me to post an announcement here,,like this:
Wee!Gee! Parts 25,26 & 27!
Sniffing out some true strange then getting down,,dirty and nasty,,really nasty,,like disgusting.Cords can cut it?I tug a bug with the big beastly brown bomber while dancing with black beauties,,and make 40 bucks ta boot!Sandblasting!It's hard for a redneck to thread an oak needle!Muscle car manipulating blows smoke and leaves graffitti hoping to mislead cowboy ears.Thunders followed quietly by Lightning in Sky.Poked,prodded,perplexed by a magic touch touchables touch and two leather question marks.Amanda drops the reeces pieces she uncovered and it's no surprise he wants his 'package back'.Wreckin' Mikes Charlie gets led,,then leads unwittingly.A debt defined,,and a surprising tie noticed when blood magic spans the distance between dead flesh and living spirit with a handshake,,,a 'shmear',,and a taste?
Find out in parts 25,26 and 27 of Wee!Gee!
If you're just starting,,here's all of what's posted sofar:
(intro) (prt1) (prt2) (prt3) (prt4) (prt5) (prt6) (prt7) (prt8) (prt9) (prt10) (prt11) (prt12) (prt13) (prt14) (prt15) (prt16) (prt17) (prt18) (prt19) (prt20) (prt21) (prt22) (prt23) (prt24) (prt25) (prt26) (prt27)
For those interested in the stuff I have shared about my pineapple plants,,they are doing great.I will be tickled when I can finally post some pics,,that shouldn't be too far in the future now.
Both of the older ones,,Mama,,or 'Granny' Frances-Jean and Arnie both are a healthy happy green and each of their apples are 'of a size' with one another.The apples are in the middle of their first real color change and are starting to look like juice is allready building up in them.And,,the little sucker,,Suki,,is steadily growing and filling her pot with roots.
I water them every day,,not much since I have installed pipes that direct the water to the rootball,and feed them about every week to a week and a half,,likewise because the pipes take the fertilizer pretty much right against the roots after filtering through about 4 inches of soil in the pipe.I also pour water over the apple and into the crooks of the leaves on the stalk since they also take up water that way as well.
For Arnie,,a whole fruit started plant,,that seems like it has helped to promote a second stalk into sprouting.It was about a quarter inch tall when I noticed it last week,,after I had trimmed the grass and de-weeded the pots,,and is now about 1 and a half inches tall and the plant is starting to lean the other top sideways to allow this one room.
She's gonna be a two headed freak,ya'll!
But,,that's no surprise really,,her 'mama' is rather weird too.
According to what I've read,,a pineapple plant,,after like two or three years,,is supposed to kick out a single apple,,shoot a 'sucker sprout' off the roots and then die.
Well,,Francis-Jean did take a bit to mature,,two hurricanes and living in a small pot too long most likely slowed her down there,,yet,,she shot an apple,,shot out a sprout (Suki,,in a pot now,,loo-king good!) and is now kicking out another pineapple.
(Oh,,and for those curious regarding seeds,,I didn't notice with the firstapple on Frances-Jean but this time I did notice both her and Arnie expressed seeds.
Small,,real hard,,could appear irregular,,kind of an amberish color.And they were everywhere.
I did not collect any this time.But I am planning to do so when the next chance rolls around and see if I can sprout them.
I have been keeping an eye on the soil in the pots in case any catch on their own,,but nothing so far.I have read they take a while to do so.We'll see.
The tiny red and black ants I mentioned being in one or the other have now appeared to have been only one colony,,or have merged.
They seem to be capable of beating off the oranges and black striders so prolific around here.
Oh,,and I found some wild florida grape vines in the field behind our building which I have began tending.
I don't know,,but I like doing it.Hey,,that's the reason!
Actually,,on top of just liking to mess with plants,,even if only critters enjoy them,,my 'official' reason is to see if I can get them to get some sweet in them by giving them a little TLC (Technically Lackadaisical Cultivation) since I have yet to taste a florida grape that was plainly sweet.
I have cleared their beds and have been giving them water daily along with occasional feedings.
Soon I will start pruning them back slightly and see if I can get them to bush a bit before they start producing,,and maybe spur larger fruit size as well.
Yes,,I will post some pics of those too.Eventually.
I have added an exchange with infun,,in which his fractured psyche spews out another splinter of personality,,to the staks:
,,and opened another brother site:
Le Mauvais Blanc, aka,,'Diable aux yeux bleus'
,,in response to that.
That set pretty much revolves around him displaying a shiny example of what I think is the detrimental effects of what I call the 'masked man syndrome' which the internet has allowed to spread like STD's in a bareback swingers club.
From my point of view,,it seems to only enable the worst to come out of folks and I really wish there was less of a propensity among people to hide their identities,,especially if they expect to be taken seriously regarding some of the serious topics discussed in such as a political discusssion forum board.
Of course,,that may lead many to ask,,'who said they should be taken seriously?'
To which I answer with,,"They often do."
And am tempted to ask in return,,"How can you have a serious rational reasonably logic conversation with someone who insists on calling themselves,,ONLY something along the lines of,,sieurelandectavous(mr.moose from ct to you/or 'has you'),,slawdawg,,psygon,psychotiki,jimmyhadanickel,,tater bug,,booboobutt,,farleftloony,,rightsright,,wrightswrong,,wallynut,politicolikster1280,bushmaster or snickerdoodles while insisting they are mature adults with valuable insight wrought from dealing with serious issues or some other hoohoo they spew?"
"With names like that,,why would they get upset if you didn't take them as seriously as they want you to take them?"
After all,,I can see,,understand,,agree to,,and with,,the whole idea of a 'nic' being used,,but to act like your 'true' identity is a state secret whose revealing is along the nature of a catastrophic just makes you look like you think your views are not worth being 'stood behind' openly by the person hiding behind the mask presenting the ideas.
At least,,it looks that way to me.
And it looks like,,to me,,that IF they had positions of importance that may make them targets of cybernuts,,they could figure out that setting up a secure internet interface is as doable for them as it is for all,,as in it's not,,so IF that's their case,,either don't try,,or don't fly.
Let it all hang out!
Like I told Mr.Moose,,'take your mask off',,your psyche will appreciate it and your mind will have room to expand.
Yes,,I totally urge any peaceful,non bogus folks,,who have a true reason to fear for their physical safety over their dissallowed views,,other than folks with public view positions they actively sought to obtain,,like those in countries where the violent are allowed latitude by wicked leaders,,to be discreet and I pray God will protect and defend you from the evil ones oppressing you.
No,,I don't believe any Amerian citizen with no desire to harm their country,,and the sense to see what truly does or doesn't do that,,would fall in the above category.
Yes,,I feel that those wishing to be taken seriously over their political views,opinions and ideas,critisizms and critiques,,should be willing to present themselvs as serious minded.
That's real hard to do if you are only knowable as snookiepookie,bumbitingboy,wmds_bs,gwboolean or maybe,,ivanitchyanus,,isn't it?
And given that as an undeniable fact,,to then get upset because someone 'pokes some fun' at ya through that 'silly nic',,which they picked,,is most likely an indicator of a weak mentality hiding behind an assumed persona chosen to do just that,,hide a weak persona while dispensing stuff all willy nilly without even the most basic form of accountability,,knowledge of identity.
The resulting confusing,,incohesive product,,delivered with insistence it is worth serious consideration,,is the main give away that the 'masked man syndrome' is having a detrimental effect on the otherwise good,,and needed,,serious intellectual interaction that may take place much more readily,,if it (MMS) wasn't an element in play,,in and on,,the open public forum known as the internet.
Not to mention seeing something like this said,,by an anonymous poster about an anonymous poster:
- a hack obsessed with his ownself importance. I'm sure he is a weak little mousey type in life and can only feel like a man while wallowing in the anonyminity of a message board. While typing his worthless opinions he is shaking in his boots in fear that someone may discover who he really is. Nothing more than a pathetic empty shell of a human being.-
,,really drives the idea home.
To me at least.
Yeah,,my opinion and theory,,which is proven to have a measure of validity by the behaviour of those I theorize suffer from the malady.
Want to see for yourself?,,check out The Staks,,and The Excite Forums Political Discussion Board.
Ya'll come back now,,ya'hear?!?

A new high,,3635 peeps,,rollin' then rockin' while straightening Dixies curves,,what TJ said,,and a crazy talkin' eeeevil man.
I am tickled to say THANK YOU to the folks who have helped push my pg vw counts up to 3719 on the 21st of this month as a high since Jan.15th which was 3774.
(my previous high was 4048 back in December,,thank you for that too.
My average daily vws have risen to allmost a hundred per day.
When I logged in to make this post the monthly sofar total was at 3627 w/110 vws yesterday.
(yet at 2a it showed 106 and 3635,,schizoid!)
I will say it again,,I am pleased,,surprised too,,but pleased plumb purply pink over it.
Thank You very much.
I sincerely appreciate it.
For those who have been reading along,,and patiently waiting for the continuation of Wee!Gee!,,I have finished part 24:
After we roll,,so do rings of smoke,,an anchor 'a-way-ting',,da sak speaks,confesses and makes an offer,,we stroll,,then roll,,to moisten the cotton,,and observe an illusionary role?Meet a mole,,then come out of the hole,,rockin' Detroit style!Idling thru to,,Straighten Old Dixies curves,,and obliterate the Death Star on the way to land on The Planet of Whispering Palms to rescue stranded compatriots.
Find out in:
We had a different tech re-process that allegedly 'blank' film I mentioned a while back.Like I thought,,the first tech either sluffed off or wasn't any good to begin with.Allthough not all have been finished yet,,it appears I got more good shots than I had thought.Er,,well,,more better shots,,since I won't call them exactly good.I am contemplating using one of 'real cameras' we have since you still have to have the 'disposables' developed so I'm thinking that I may as well have the added 'focusing' options they provide.
So,,now,,I have more pics that I will present here,,eventually.
Now,,for a 'mistaken belief' concerning a founding fathers words and 'the wall of separation' so many have their panties in a wad over,,but only as it has bearing on a famous Judeo-Christian religion,,apparently.
How come so many folks seem to insist on using T.Jeffersons letters as tools in their attempts to remove any reference to Christianity from the public venues of this country?It really irks me to no end that so many folks have fallen for the concept that these two letters have any bearing to removing any semblance of religion from the 'public square' or advocating 'state' so much as saying 'boo' regarding an issue regarding any persons religion,let alone saying state should govern any persons rights to free expression of it.
IOW,,IMHsmellyO,,like I recently told michaelbrown2000 in the excite political board,,those who use it as a tool to back up their apparent 'prejudism' against any expression of Judeo-Christian religion in public,,are either 'illiterate',,foolishly following assumptions,,victims of 'manipulation by leaders',,or plainly 'dishonest' and knowingly trying to make out like it says what they wish it did.
The Cooper letter was discussing something T.J. wrote concerning British laws,,fifty years prior to it's writing.
The Danbury letter was to assure that congregation that Jefferson would,,,'see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.'
Here,,I have treated the letters to 'an examination' in order to help some understand exactly what is contained in them:
So that when folks see them used erroneously to back up something that TJ's words do not,,they can respond to the error in an intelligent and comprehensive fashion.
Maybe,,if enough get on board with efficient and effective responses to the insanity,,the folks wishing to 'separate church from state' will realize doing such will remove the 'inalienable rights' the 'declaration' says a GOD gave us.
IOW,,I am doing what I can do to help our country retain the elements which made it so great,,even tho that means I am in opposition to many Americans who are misguided into believing our country is best served by legislation opposing free exercise of 'religion' being enacted which simply results in 'discriminatory actions' being committed against the very 'religious beliefs' which enabled America to be as free as it 'once' was.
No,,we are not free anymore folks.We,,well most of us anyway,,just think we are because we,,as a people,,have been dumbed down by those who have been in charge of our nations educational standards,,all in order to allow those incapable of 'passing' to pass,,instead of actually 'teaching students' to be self sufficient and capable of thinking things through for themselves.
Why would 'they' do that?
To keep 'their' jobs of course.
If it isn't hard to pass,,then more students do,,and the teachers look very competent.
Of course,,then the actual results of the 'education dispensed' makes itself plain in the 'fruit found' in the students subsequent 'success' in life,,after graduation.
What is commonly found?
Many who have simply learned to lie and cheat to succeed.
A whole bunch of over specialized folks who can't switch gears adequately to weather the snares and cares safely who have been indoctrinated into resorting to dependency on,,or pandering to others as though that is what the 'acceptable' rule is rather than it being the exception for a capable,responsible,adult human being.
The majority,,those who got so used to simply memorizing data to regurgitate it at test time and never being made to practice utilizing it in the course of 'rational,logical' problem solving.In short,,they never got taught to actually think.And they forget the material as soon as it's used in the test because they never learn it's relevance in any way that relates to the realities they know they live in.
Of course,,then there is the 'lower caste'.
The rebels,,drop outs and gifted ones who reject the indoctrination or see through the machinations of the folks who have found how to utilize the system for their own,,rarely altruistic,,purposes.
Naw,,I ain't saying that,,allthough with humans,,that is allways a possibility,,especially when power,prestige or profit can be garnered from such.
In my opinion,,it's mich more likely a case of many folks,,acting out of individual desires,,contribute to an environment in which many who see the 'advantages' for their personal goals being achieved through 'contributing,condoning or guiding' policies and curriculum which harm students rather than aid them become capable,self sufficient,independent thinkers able to deal with the world they live in with out resorting to enablement through victimization.
What the heck am I talking about?
(that's the reaction I usually get when I talk about this matter.)
If it seems really screwy to ya,,dont feel bad.It seems really screwy to me that it is a matter that anyone would have to discuss it to begin with.
But,,no one can deny that something terrible has happened to the minds and attitudes of the majority of Americans that has contributed to a drastic decline in the character of our nation.
Now,,what is the thing they ALL have in common?
From the prestigious to the peons to cops to crooks to congressmen to corporate criminals to business owners to bums to progeny and parents what one thing do they share?
Just think about it.If it gives you a head,,or heart ache,,feel free to blame it on the nut whose blog you are reading right now.
I don't mind,,after all,,I'm an eeeeeevil man trying to do what little I can,,to help some see through the hazy,crazy fog filling our world,,getting thicker and thicker.
pssst,,I ain't talking about air pollution.
And I have had folks think I don't make sense ever since one of my siblings first said such way back before I can even remember it.
But,,hey,,luv it or loathe it,,
Ya'll come back now,,ya'hear?!?

Long time no post,,2 parts Wee!Gee!3232 peeks,smirks,exciticons,a slawdawg and psygons still squeekin'.
Long time no post,,
It's been over a month since I made an entry.I apologize to those who may have came looking for something new here during that time,,and say Thank You! as well.
To my amazement,,the pg vw counter has only showed two days ,the 27th & 28th of March,below 3000(so fars for the month)and a high of 3444 today,, with a lowest day count of 57 on 4/1.Other than two high count days of 226,most likely with 100 or so from from MC indexing my site,,the highest one day total was 218 pg vws.(I wrote the above today high number from having logged in at about 8 a.I can't figure out how/when the counter actually tallies the numers,,it seems 'schizoid')
Logging in to make this post,,there was 113 showing for yesterday and 3432 for the month (sofar).
I am humbled.
I guess some folks are actually reading Wee!Gee!,,thank you vey much!
Here's two new parts since prt21:
(Remember,,I would very much like to hear some 'sofar reviews')
"Time marked,,Foglessly Foggy,,Nomans,Arrgh,matey!Ais,,droppin' Ma off.Eyes outta the sky?.Listen to the music and roll on down the highway."
"Days past,,days to come,,something nasty far away,,pleasent people near,,a wonder whispered,,in my ear?.What did I hear?Read,,huh?Knock,Knock.Dale Tale.We roll,,before,,we stroll,,to roll."
(Part 24 is about half done as of this posting)
If you want,,you could tell me what you think of what I've wrote so far by using the form mailer on the bottom of this page:
OR,,use the 'formal feedback form' located here:
(yet,,even if ya don't make a peep,,thank you for showing up anyway.I do appreciate it.)
For those who may enjoy reading the stuff related to my participating in Excite's Discussion Forums Political Board,,
Psygon popped back up,,still squeekin':
Allmost like clockwork.(I think the pattern matches the cycle one may see with a 'prescription' running out)
And there has been a new nic show up calling himself 'kslawdawg' who apparently wants to form a 'new poli-tic party',,(like America needs 'another multi-parasite party' ),,that I have dubbed,,"The Slaw-Dawg Party".Here's the exchange where that happened:
I may post some others not as large as my usual for folks to see more of his 'ideas and attitudes',,but maybe not.
I have to admit to being a bit burned out on conversations regarding politics with 'mostly anonymous' people.It seems to me that way too many of the 'nic-named' do not hold themselves to a very high standard of ethically sound criteria when it comes to discussing topics deserving serious and sober minded consideration.
Yeah,,I know,,the 'masked man' mindset is what MOST seem to enjoy the most about 'using the web'.
Yeah,,I know,,that IS what one finds most often on the web.
Yeah,,I know,,if I didn't go there,,I wouldn't face that.
And that's why I get burned out on it on occasion,,I know it's like that,,and most likely will never change.And I also know it barely helps things to get any better,,,well okay,,it doesn't help anything get better at all.But that don't mean ya shouldn't try to,,,right?And when,,or if,,ya do,,try,,you should never act act like they do,,right?
It's just too bad too many of the 'anonymous' masses don't seem to know it also.Imagine how much better the world might be without all that.
And yes,,I will most likely 'go back' after a refreshing absence.
(I miss my WebTv!)
Personally,,I really wish some of the folks who come through here,,that may be interested in conversation and discussion of 'stuff' in an adult and reasonable fashion without all the 'bovine feces' one finds too often on the web would make themselves known.
It's as easy as clicking on the below links and introducing yourself.And there is the comment button down below this entry as well.
These are the MasterCom boards I have set up.
They are free.So if you would like such yourself click on through and open an account.
Simple to operate,,and did I say 'free'?
I am going to start making entries of some sort or other on the 'bulletin board',,probally just news articles or information and/or links pertaining to,,uh,,stuff and things,,I guess.How's that sound?
Of course that one would not be open to public posts.
The 'moderated one' allows me to 'review/approve' a post before it's published.
I am not sure what kind of value that may have for someone,,but I do invite submissions for my other sites,,(which are only 'seeds' right now),,from which I could allow reviews,reports,excerpts/lead ins to and links regarding such (?and other?) things as would be expectd to have a higher amount of 'sober mindedness' to them.
The DANG-DINGIE American,,a site focusing on the history of the Dutch,Anglo,Native,German,Irish and English peoples before and after 'white' folks invaded North America.
And,,The Evil White Man,,which is intended to be focused on,,well,,The Evil White Man,,in all his glory and infamy.
Then there is the 'open forum' which you can post straight to,,no registration,,you can be 'anonymous',,but I will 'delete' troll-feces.Yes,,my discretion.But,,I will only do so with 'obvious,blatant vitriolic spleen excretions'.Promise.I do not want to squash 'free speech' but do want to squash free range 'trolls'.They are the vermin of the 'web wide world'.
The registered one is for those who also do not mind a higher level of responsiblity for one's actions which comes from 'someone knowing a little about them'.I promise to not share any private info with any but 'appropriate authorities' if the need may arise.
And then,,there's the 'excite folk' board.That's 'open' and,,well,,here's a line from the intro post:
~I set this up for any of the 'excite' posters who may wander through and feel like saying something.
I would appreciate it if any of you folks post in here,,,that you use your excite nics.No,,it's not a necessity,,just a courtesy.You can post under what ever you wish,,you don't even need to register in this forum.~
(But,I rather doubt many of those folks will for some reason or other.Come to think of it,,I doubt many will use the boards.Why?It just seems that way to me.I hope I get made wrong.)
Okay,,now,,something visual rather than textual:
Inspired by the recent Obama-Wright 'issues' I have dabbled a bit in 'visual political commentary'.And infun (moose) actually asked me to 'draw him a picture'regarding a 'race issue'.(I doubt he thought I actually would.~smirk~)
I have utilized the 'photo album' feature at my 'harbin336' tripod site.
(There is a 'leave a comment' feature enabled.Tripod is cool.)
Smirks,,political commentary of a visual nature:
And,,the exiticons I made for use in the 'backposts':
And,,some banner blanks,,for those who know what to do with them you also know how to give a link back:
(and if you want,,ask,,maybe I'll put script or ? on one for ya,,and not make it publicly viewable but only if you ask from a 'registered board',,or by emailing me,,okay?Yes,,if you asked using a public/anonymous route like the open boards or the 'comment feature' in the albums,,I would probally do so as well,,but,,I will make it available in another 'album',,so your 'banner' would be 'publicly viewable'.That may be desirable to some since it can easily be a 'link' as well.Yes,,if I find out (get told) it's a porn,phishing,mal or spy ware site,,you get deleted,publicly reviled,reported and etc,etc.(Oh,,and in all cases I retain ownership of any images to use as I see fit and am only allowing YOU to use it,,because I did it for you for free,,get it?NO,,I will not be unduly restrictive about it,,you can use it as though it is yours,,but it isn't.Please,,spread it around,,and tell everyone where you got it.That's how you return the 'favor'.Hey,,I can even arrange to have it,,or something else,,'printed on all kinds of stuff for ya'.Seriously.)
Allrighty then ya'll,,whether you avail yourself of the 'arena' and 'resources' made available or not,,again,,I sincerely thank you all for visiting and,,
Ya'll come back now,ya'hear?!
