Low Humidity Monday or Blogs

I am officially addicted to blogs. It all started when I signed up for Google alerts for parrots. Google sends me news items and various bits and pieces from the internet any time parrots are mentioned. One post was about a little cockatiel who was bleeding from the mouth and the owners rushed it to the vet's. I clicked on the entry and ended up at Incremental Degrees. I bookmarked the site and clicked the next day to see how the bird was doing -- the bird was fine, though no one knows what happened. And the writer of the blog is a very, very good writer so every once in awhile I'd stop by to see what was going on in their life.

A year or so later another Google alert mentioned Parrot Musings, so I started reading that one, too.

And last year I started my own blog, out of boredom at work primarily. Then I stopped until about a month ago.

Then, somehow I don't recall, a few weeks ago I stumbled on ERnursey's site and I've been reading blogs ever since.

Sorry to hear about your job. I used to come home crying from my old job at least once a week it was so horrible. You definitely have my sympathy.

I hear you on being addicted to blogs! I click from blog to blog and the next thing you know hours have gone by -- eek!

Glad that you are still working towards unionization. As someone nearing retirement, you might be in a position to set an example for the more junior people in your workplace, who find the idea of going against management's interests intimidating. It takes courage, that's for sure- and you have courage in spades.

Parrot says "squawk squawk," which I am pretty sure is cockatiel for "solidarity forever."

I think.
