I want to blog too...

Friends, Romans, Countrymen... I just wanted to drop a quick line. Why? Because I saw Carmen was having fun writing on our blog, so here I am writing a blog entry and finding out that it's not really what I thought it was going to be. In fact, it's not very exciting at all.
So what do you talk about? Carmen seems to center her topics around Archie our lovely dog. She even thought it appropriate to put a picture up for Archie in front of a tree! I'm not even close to being that creative. Some of you may be thinking that there is a serious undertone of sarcasm with this particular blog post, well you're right. Anyway, I just wanted to experience the act of blogging, which interestingly enough rhymes with jogging and logging, and boxing.
Well Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. Christmas. Why is it that people have to be so politically correct these days?? I understand that it shows respect to all those living here in big, beautiful america but where can we take a stand say; Merry Christmas? Am I extending my belief in Christ to you in such an offensive way that there are grounds for violence? By saying Merry Christmas, have I offended you, your family and all those in your lineage? Here I'm not trying to be sarcastic. I mean, I am a firm believer of being respectful and open to others who do not share the same belief as I do, but is it really that bad to express my happiness for the Man who, as a friend, sacrificed Himself for the benefit of all mankind through a simple phrase? I wish to end my blog and say with utmost respect for all diverse races, peoples and cultures, as an expression of my love for the greatest example of friendship and selflessness, Merry Christmas.

Pretty good for your first blog! I can see your compassion for blogging building by the second...

"have I offended you, your family and all those in your lineage?"

You don't need to wish me a Merry Christmas to do that. Remember that time you called me "...a bastard, from an infinite line of bastards"?

Nice blog. Although I don't think that boxing rhymes with blogging and logging. Maybe that's just me?! :)

Can't wait to hear more from you Ben.
