Blogging about blogging

It's the day after the 2012 national election and I'm a little tired out.  I stayed up until 1 a.m. to see the last two speeches - the concession and the acceptance of the concession.  I guess I'm a little gassed, and I didn't get any good photos today.  I did, however, hit some tennis balls at Fred Wells Tennis Center, and got in some pretty good cardio-vascular exercise.  Thanks to Tennis Dennis and crew.  Since I vowed to blog every day this month, I needed a plan.  Or perhaps a ploy.  I could experiment with the features of blogger perhaps.  Maybe change the font or the size of the font.   Or strike through.  I have photo archives to use.

Polar bear. At the zoo. Sunday.

I looked back at the blog history.  This is what was going on in 2008 on this date - November 7.   It snowed that day. There is no snow here yet this year, but that is not necessarily a sign of global warming. It's just what happens sometimes.   I did, however, play tennis that day, too, as I did again today, and at the same venue.

I looked at my stat counter.  I've had over 50,000 "hits" since I began this blog on May 3, 2007, five and a half years ago.  I guess I can get through one more blog, especially if I have a photo of a polar bear to upload.

Totally bearable.

It is my favorite day of TV. It usually lasts until well after my bedtime. The day after is always difficult.

I still love it.

The polar bears at Como seem so much happier in their new exhibit, don't they? Nice photo in any case.

The bear looks as if he/she is praying. Good photo. I spent Wed feedbacking (assessing many papers/projects) and then going to see Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler at the Excel. It was an excellent concert. Bob was surprisingly animated.
