3000 hits! Thanks Dr. Porkenheimer!

According to Sitemeter I've gotten my 3000th hit today. That's kind of cool seeing as I started less than a year ago. However, probably half of those hits probably came from people Googling/yahooing/etc "Dr. Porkenheimer's Boner Juice" and stumbling onto my site. Anyway, thanks everybody for stopping by!

I'm very happy to know that the space shuttle Discovery landed safely. That's quite a relief. Welcome back to Earth! Apparently the future of the space program is questionable though...

On a sad note...
Anchorman Peter Jennings died yesterday at the age of 67 of lung cancer. Peter Jennings was a fixture throughout my life. I grew up in an ABC News household and continued watching it as I preferred it over the coverage of CBS and NBC. He was definite favorite of the "Big 3". Peter Jennings always kept a cool head and presented in a clean, precise, professional manner. I'll miss him. It's up to a new generation now. It's sad to lose another great Canadian...

Another stolen blog quiz (from Kathleen). This one's kinda cool...
The idea is that all of the questions are answered with song titles from one band. The band that I'm going to use is Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Here we go...

Describe how you live: I Let Love In

Share a few words of wisdom: People Ain't No Good

That sorta worked...

Another stolen blog quiz (this one is from Julie). The idea of this one is to do a Google Image search of the answers and post the pictures that come up. I will be somewhat selective as I've already encountered a penis searching for "33"...
