I’m pleased that there will be a new ACB posted soon. The one year anniversary of the collaboration will be soon. We’re all very excite about this and will keep you posted on our Twitter, AliChrisBill. Ali is about to go to sleep, Chris is in the middle of a busy day an I’m just waking. So, these things can take days to plan. But, we’re ready to go again. It feels really good. I’ve been missing this more than anything.

Coffee, Tea and Me

I “double clutch” a mug of coffee every morning. That means I have both hands on the mug softly speaking to it as if I were wooing a new girlfriend. You’ve seen on a recent video that I bough a new coffeemaker. It chugs and spurts giving me at least three full mugs of java. Is this good? According to the postings on the internet it’s like the Russian Roulette of morning drink. Some people metabolize caffeine quickly, while others just take a sip and wait for the heart attack.

Every afternoon I must have my tea. Five trips to the UK and that habit was set permanently in my psyche. I’m like a kid at Christmas making the afternoon pot and adding those two sugars and touch of cream (in my case 2% fat milk) to make it proper. God, this is heaven. My last trip in the UK I was literally stopping and thanking strangers in that country for introducing this into my life.

Someone asked me the other day if I was healthy. I respond the same way to anyone who asks. My last checkup in 1994 I was in perfect health. Yes, when I had surgery three years ago my doctor told me to keep running that I was in great shape. One day I’m going to die of something. When it happens and whatever the circumstances, two things are certain. The Medical Insurance industry will make sure I have no money left so that if I do live through it I will be broke and want to die. And the medical profession will make sure that I understand that everything I do will eventually kill me.

And so, I continue to drink. Cheers!

Where Have You been?

I am truly sorry for my lapse in tending to this blog. I'm going to be changing some things to make it easier for me to post on a regular basis.
To what's happening now. I am having the most incredible experience with YouTube and related interactive sites. I am truly a person that can say, "YouTube changed my life." Could I live without it? Yes. Do I want to? No. I tend to look at the positive things.

I don't assume another personality on YouTube or any other interactive site. I made a friend on YouTube. Along with that comes messages on Twitter, Facebook and Skype. Because YouTube includes video and audio you have better understanding of who that person really is. So when we had our first audio chat (which I seldom do) the conversation was as if we had been friends for years. Absolutely amazing. I credit it with it being a nice fit in personalities, but also the familiarity of YouTube.

Gatherings are much the same. Through familiarity with videos, most there already have been informally introduced by their videos. Yes, there are creeps. But they are found out and quickly dismissed. I can't help but feel that the world is a smaller and better place because of this new interaction and relationship we have all developed.
