New Year's Eve Follies

New Year's Resolutions in Christ: Unofficial

1. Keep improving my career (s) outlook with my PhD and ministry work and EST/BST license.

2. Keep improving offline social circles. New church homes. Uplifting.

3. Keep improving my blogs. I reason from Google/Blogger statistics 2013 has been my best year as far as pageviews.

Overall, and in particular with my other more academic blog.

Thank you.

Statscounter states differently but I know with the use of several programs, as documented in posts and comments, Google/Blogger provides the more accurate numbers.

A little 2014 challenge to those that read and will not comment, email me or social media connect.

I could use the input and support.

Even you single young women with significant  Blogger and Facebook pageviews that are seemingly afraid that I will attempt to marry you online if we even chat or connect at all.

I am not an online minister, so you are safe...

If I was not of high quality, then why are you checking me out?

Ah...ponder on that philosophically.

See all this education has some unexpected benefits.

Then there are the oldies which I am 'sure' are most of those pageviews...

'Gertrude, take your Ben Gay and Prep H, clap the clapper and say goodnight.

I have learned more blogging than I bargained for, have I ever.

 

A guy did the same thing first day of EST (Enhanced Security Training) course...bloodied his nose.

My thought...'Police Academy'.

Note, I am not stating she is stupid, that is from You Tube.

Cardiff City FC Manager Fired:Guardian

Quote:

'The battle between Mackay and Tan has been traced by some back to a conflict that arose in early October over player bonuses. Mackay reportedly kicked Tan out of the Cardiff City dressing room, telling him that he was not welcome there even if he was the club owner. Another report surmises it was Mackay laughing at Tan’s suggestion that Cardiff players ought to shoot from the center line more often in order to score more goals that poisoned Tan against the manager. It has also been suggested that the primary conflict rested with a dispute over who was responsible for how much money was spent in the acquisition of new players and the add-ons that might have brought the contracts over the intended budget. Regardless of the actual reason, the decision to fire Malkay Mackay as manager of Cardiff City FC is one in a line of unpopular decisions by Vincent Tan.'

Klassick...

On talksport the other day a couple of commentators were saying the owner looks like a 007 villain, a Canadian commentator stated he looks like Arnold from Happy Days. I think he needs some better PR. 

During the Sunderland @ Cardiff match, a commentator asked if the owner, Mr. Tan had robotic arms underneath the black gloves, like a James Bond villain.

It was stated Mr. Tan showed up at the home stadium for the match, really early, for fear of fans. His own club's fans wanting to do bodily harm.

No big deal for Australians, they would keep it around like a guard dog, mate...

I have thought that bone on bone leg kicks were dangerous... With some light sparring could easily see the potential and attempted to avoid it. Better to use side or front kick to knee I suppose as opposed to roundhouse kick.

Great ad for not being a professional fighter...

Thank you for all the 'Likes', especially Facebook, which have been more frequent recently.

It is nice and more importantly, good to do blogging ministry in community and not alone...

Just read this and find it interesting from Wiki

Niki Lauda

'Lauda was seriously injured in a crash at the 1976 German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring, during which his Ferrari burst into flames and he came close to death after inhaling hot toxic gases and suffering severe burns. However he recovered and returned to race again just six weeks later at the Italian Grand Prix. Scars from the injuries he suffered have left him permanently disfigured.'

'In 2008 he married Birgit, who is 30 years his junior and was formerly a flight attendant for his airline. She had also donated a kidney to Lauda when the kidney he received in a transplant from his brother years earlier failed. In September 2009 Birgit gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl.[20]'

Not stating I am a fan, or support his lifestyle. I know virtually nothing about him. Just noting his ability to find love with disfigurement.

Happy new year !

Ah, often my best day of the year pageview wise. Already started.

Working out in Vancouver tonight.
Might hit a party or two after, depends on next day schedule...

Russell Norman Murray said...

Seems to me I actually had 10 g pageviews on Dec 31 one year. A lot of it based on 'Thoughts on New Year's Eve (Input requested)' 2010.

I think the 2013 and 2012 posts have probably more to offer.

Been seeing mixed research on microwaves. More of it seems to point toward the positive, but then again there is an industry...

'It turns out that microwaving your food does not destroy nutrients, in fact it demonstrates equal or better retention of nutrients as compared to other cooking methods…1

For example, studies at Cornell University found that spinach retained nearly all its folate when cooked in a microwave, but lost about 77 percent when cooked on a stove.2

A meta-analysis of the microwave nutrient issue published by the The Journal of The American Dietetic Association concluded that:

“…studies showed equal or better retention of nutrients for microwave, as compared with conventional, reheated foods for thiamin, riboflavin, pyridoxine, folic acid, and ascorbic acid.”

They also found that that bacon cooked in the microwave has significantly lower levels of cancer-causing nitrosamines than conventionally cooked bacon.'

Russian states something about gambling without a casino, still = waste of time without going to a casino.

Hilarious from work training. With a senior Sikh, very nice guy. The mgr called five times to check up on me, and the Sikh would always give a good review. The Sikh would state after hangup in Sikh accent 'F in' guy always calling to check up. He does not have a girlfriend...

What a strange thing on your soccer video...the manager gets fired although the owner had a crazy idea that players could score from center half, or at least shoot the ball from there, I think scoring would be difficult from this area...for sure!
