Sadly, today it is more relevant than ever to me as I am not only getting wiser but also wider with age.

Instead of showing you a variety of naff websites, I thought I'd show you how Google sees websites that just don't help users. Their explanations are great and should be shared to the world!*
* slightly over zealous, but heck, its what I do!

Some people call me a space cowboy yeah, Some call me the gangster of love,Some people call me Maurice,Cause' I speak of the pompetous of love.None of which is true about me at all whatsoever.
However, when the great lyrics continue;
Cause' I'm a picker, I'm a grinner, I'm a lover, and I'm a sinner, playin' my music in the sunI'm a joker, I'm a smoker, I'm a mid-night toker, I get my lovin' on the run
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Yes, there is a bit of me in that. But I'd change just one thing. I'm a reader. I'm a voracious reader. My home library has over 500 books.
Ambrose, Clancy, Baldacci, Kathy Reichs, Keegan, Kotler, Burford, Chambers, Robert Mason, Linderer, Silva, Griffin, Cornwell, and yes, the list goes on.
And that list has been added to by a young and exciting author named Larry Correia.
So what's so great about Correia's writing? I can't explain (which is probably why he is the author and I'm the fanboy blogger!)
He writes about vampires and orcs and ogres and werewolves, special powers, normal humans and past events. Things I would not touch with a bargepole in any other book I have read. Ever.
|New York Times Bestseller Larry Correia|
A mother-in-law who is a vampire. A foe who is an ogre. A friend who is a werewolf. An ornamental gnome who kicks his ass...
Don't take my word for it, go over to his website and read about him and then go buy the books!

As the great man says himself 'What's better than a '90s megamix? A '90s megamix played on melodica, that's what! Take a look at this compilation of '90s hits played on a curious instrument'

Here are a few of my favourite posts from some awesome bloggers:
Insomniacmedic brings his 'A' game with his post Missing
Blackfork writes about his stumbling across Killer Joe Piro - back in 1942
Neptunus Lex writes his about his last foray into supersonic flight in his intoxicating post 'Night and Day'Ambulance Driver had some not very nice news recently, so let's help cheer him up by sharing his excellent post “Winter Wings” by A Day in the Life of An Ambulance Driver

I dipped into Google Reader today and stumbled upon 3 insanely different blogs which I regularly read and smile at. What they had to say made me think about who I am, or more specifically, what I read to improve myself.
Here are the blogs;

And then I started going through the blogs I follow on Google Reader and came across a few things you might find interesting, just not finger licking good!
At Random Acts of PatriotismASM 826 posted this fund raising blog:
The music in this video can be purchased from iTunes, profits to support the men and women of the Armed Forces. Details here.Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men.
--General George Patton Jr.
And for Firefly / Serenity fans like myself SigBoy's posting about the TV show 'Castle' made me smile:

Now that is one committed blogger. Or is it a blogger that should be committed?
Personally I think Peter would agree that he'd have preferred having quadruple chocolate cake...

Jumblerant isn't about politics. If your politics can be swayed by any argument of mine you have bigger problems than whom to vote for. If you want to read a blog vehemently opposed to / pro the current President / Prime Minister / El Jefe then there a lot of blogs out there doing just that.
So here is part of The Munchkin Wrangler's opinion about Roman Polanski the famous film director, recently arrested in Switzerland for an outstanding warrant from the US of A.

Simple so far. Did the crime, do the time.
Let’s recap that “matter of morals”: a 40-year-old man plies a 13-year-old girl with booze and drugs to get into her panties, and then proceeds to have sex with her despite her refusal. Now, I’m not a prude, but where I come from, we call that “raping a child”.
Charges were brought, the court agreed, the defendant Polanski pleaded guilty, and promptly skipped the country before the sentencing to evade the punishment.
A flange of actors and Hollywood types came together to write a letter, I imagine starting it with 'To Whom It May Concern', stating that Mr. Polanski's arrest some thirty years ago was in fact for “a matter of morals.”
By the way, if you are discussing any aspect of child abuse or child rape having Woody Allen on your team is a real disadvantage. The picture above is Woody Allen and his current wife.
Osama bin Laden would be a better character reference.

Through these expert, witty and informational Bloggers I have felt that there are a few out there who are not so enamored with Google's Blogger.

I have had some issues with it myself, namely that I want to change the preview in a feed to all of the blog, and not just the first 250ish digits. And I can't. And their Help Section is rubbish.
On the other hand the main moan I've heard form others is that the timing option - to send out a blog at a specific time and date - doesn't work.
But this weekend it did it for me. Twice.
So I guess I won't be ranting about them this blog.
