I thought it was time I updated the side buttons a little. I got rid of the DMC Forum, since it sorta' died when facebook emerged. I left the button at the bottom where my "Buttons" section lies, in the event that someone wants to continue visiting Dimitri's baby.
I also added a button leading to Karen Scutt's blog. There she portrays the wonder tales and sites she experiences in Dubai, her new place of residence. Read on as you discover the trials and tribulations of a young Caucasian woman in another realm.
The BoozeBros button takes you to a website where the theme is Booze, BBQ, and Babes. Created by my friend and co-worker Jim Ruel, and his brother the brain surgeon; the site's main focus is on rating and critiquing beers, talking about guy stuff, and looking at pin-ups (the clean kind). Join now and rate any beer you choose.
Hey!! How did facebook find its way onto my blog?!? Dangit! ...Alright, so I caved. There is a link button leading you to crackbook... I mean facebook, should you be interested.
Finally, I thought to update the "Jrod's Blog" and "My Art" buttons on some of the pages.
A new list has been added under the "What I'm Learning" column. I've written three songs since I began guitar lessons, so I thought I'd list those as well.
Alrighty, enjoy!

End of Book II

I did it... just now, at 1:01am on June 12 2007. I finished the first draft of the second book in my fiction series.
Yes, there is still a lot of HEAVY editing to do, as I'm sure I was half asleep at the wheel during some parts of the book's creation. But for now I can say that I have completed the second part of a (minimum) four part story. For fun I wanted Microsoft to give me the word count of the first draft...
104 letter size pages, 58 991 words, 266 794 characters (not including spaces), 326 910 characters (including spaces), 1 720 paragraphs, 4 720 lines. Isn't that outragious?!? that means I hit the space bar at least 60 000 times during the creation of this chapter. Man, my laptop is sure getting its usage in.
