What a Wonderful World


We live in a great time.

We put a man on the moon. Thanks to the internet, there's a world of information and entertainment at our fingertips. Televisions can receive hundreds of channels. Pop Tarts with added fiber. You can get five hours of energy from drinking a two ounce bottle of liquid. Wendy's is coming out with boneless chicken wings. You can go just about anywhere on the planet, and still make and receive cellular telephone calls. There's a 64 calorie beer. The Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup. Pepsi Max. Atomic clocks. Paying bills via computer and internet. LED flashlights. Diet Dad's Root Beer. Movie theater stadium seating. Six Super Bowl wins for the Steelers. Bing. Quilted toilet paper. Toasted subs. Satellite radio. Laptop computers. Tagless underwear. Magic Jack. Tomato plants that grow upside down. Cargo pants. GPS units. The Sham-Wow. Heated car seats. WNEP2.

But, why can't we make a Fig Newton without seeds ?!?!?!?!?!? It's a wonderful product-- low in calories for a cookie, high in fiber, tasty, and a relatively guilt-free snack... but those darned seeds ! I love Fig Newtons, but I hate spitting out seeds for hours afterward-- even after brushing my teeth.

Note to scientists: work on it.

And, we're moving.

Let me back up a bit. I noticed blog hits decreased after the WNEP.com redesign a few months ago. Then, I started whining like a petulant child, claiming visitors to the web site couldn't find the blog.

To shut me up, management is moving the blog from the "ABOUT WNEP" section to "COMMUNITY." It will be in both places for a while, until visitors get used to the new location, and I find something else to complain about.
