After Torsten’s post I checked out Blogpulse again and really like it. Some great features in this baby and I added a link to my profile on the main blog page. This could be taking a lot of wind out of Technorati’s sails.

Hugh from gapingvoid has started to send around more bloggie goodness, a new wine to be exact. Great stuff to get the word on a new wine out in the world. I recently had a wonderful somelier evening and really loved some of the australian wine I tasted and am actually looking forward to trying out some african ones in my trip to africa next week. Congratulations to Hugh for getting the world out on the new one he is promoting.
I no longer have a girl friend. I now have a wife Feels very good actually and we had a great day so far, which was really just the legal part. Tomorrow we will have the church part of the deal with a lot more guests to celebrate with in the evening. Packing up a few things, trying to relax. But life feels very good at the moment
We actually were married by Mr. Stommel, who is something of a famous guy at the registry office in cologne. It was a real joy and we had lots of laughs, which made the entire ceremony unforgettable. He had to make a joke about me being born in DÃ¼sseldorf (there is a bit of a fun war between dÃ¼sseldorf and cologne) to start with, of course topping it off with Avonia being born in the Iran (her father was there at the time). We came out of there feeling really good about all the marriage, later learning that he is married the fourth time and at the christening of his children he dresses them up for cologne karneval so they become good cologne citizen The guy is really fun and we thank him for a great ceremony. Oh, of course we’re still feeling great about the marriage. It’s a fun feeling.
We then had a quick drink outside which
That’s the question Jeremy asks and I agree with him that it’s potentially peaking in the not too distant future. This would be a good thing though. When on-line shopping (to take his example) was all the rage, it was still in its infancy. After the hype died down it started to really get going without the problem of hype behind it.
I think Blogging still needs a few months to really get out of the lime light but the hype will die down in 2006, which is when it will be a standard term such as eMail and will become part of our life. More and more real people are starting to ask me about blogging. That’s pretty peaking I feel. But people are starting to get it, beyond the hype, just the general idea of talking publicly.

I wouldn’t have expected that from somebody as big as DBA but they probably have just been tricked. I hope.
Today I gave myself a little gift, it being an Odyssey DFX 2-Ball Putter, and boy is this one a beauty. It’s amazingly balanced, has a very nice feel, and the two white round shapes at the top help even the brainless to shove the ball in the right direction. And Odyssey has a very good text writer on their site. Check The Beginning:
“Putting. It’s a game within a game. One with many challengers. But few masters. It’s where three feet can feel like three inches. It’s where muscle strength doesn’t matter. But mental strength does. And if you don’t control this game. This game controls you. Welcome to Odyssey. It’s time to even the score.”
Looking forward to trying this out on the next round.
