Okay... it HAD to happen sooner or later, but Kelvin has RUN OUT of things to talk about (and, would also like to offer you shares in a new bridge he is building in the desert....) 
No... I've hardly run out of things to talk about, but sometimes I have a dilemma regarding just what to discuss next.  Sorta, like now.

I've been feeling a little under the weather.  It seems this cold -- or something -- has been trying to catch me for weeks, and I've been trying hard to outrun it.  I actually left work early on Friday, and on high recommendation from my friend Connie, I've been sucking down this stuff called
ZICAM. Sounds pretty powerful, doesn't it?  Imagine the booming voice from the sky, "You are healed by the power of ZI CAM!" Sounds like one of those kid's super hero shows!

Anyway... I've been sucking this stuff down, sitting, hydrating (that means drinking lots of fluids), getting lots of rest.  I went to bed early Friday night, and got good rest.  I went to bed last night at 11:00 and since my body is apparently feeling better and accustomed to getting only 4 to 5 hours of sleep, guess what?  At 3:45 a.m. this morning, my body said,
"HEY!  GET UP!" so, here I sit, you lucky devils you.  Aren't you glad we have email so I don't CALL you at this time of the morning?

WHAT DOES ONE DO when one wakes up at this ungodly hour with no one to talk to?  One THINKS! And one of the things I was thinking this morning, is that I'd like to get a little feedback from each of you  regarding Ramblings:  what else you'd like to see covered or discussed, what you like about Ramblings, what you dislike about Ramblings (admittedly hoping that's a short list), how might it be better for you?  My committment is to "entertain...enlighten...challenge...inspire... uplift... and sometimes amaze and astonish you. . . but NEVER to bore you" so I'm letting you fill out my report card... right now.

Some of you are new! This is not the typical issue -- so don't give up on me yet :-D -- but I'd like to hear from you, too.  Tell me what YOU would like to see or hear.  Check out my philosophy on the main site, if you haven't, and let me know what would be relevant to you, from me.  Positive, upbeat, motivational. I got lots to say, but I want to make sure I'm meeting you "where YOU live".

Okay?  So,
please take a few minutes to say hi to me! I'd like to know more about my readers -- I don't have the 1000 subscribers yet, so when everyone writes me back this time  it won't be too bad.  My readers' ages go from early 20s (including my baby boy) to folks in theirs 70's or more, and I'm happy to span that distance, but I want to be even better.  I'd like to meet you. so, drop me a line, introduce yourself, and tell what you like.

I made some decisions and some changes.  The BLOG is now officially knowm as  Ramblings Lite and has different content than the "eGold Edition" of Ramblings(TM).
For those of you who just can't get enough, there is a sign up box on the blog, so you can get those posts via email automatically.  I may do something similar with my home page, because I am now changing content on the main page of my web site monthly, and adding content to other areas of Ringold.NET  Stay tuned for more on those. CUTE STORIES ON ALL FRONTS! I have to say.

WRITE ME!  I'll be looking forward to hearing from you. Don't be shy, okay?  I'm too far away to bite you!

Have an AWESOME day.
