Ladies and Gentlemen, a giant has passed. A man I consider a personal friend has left his blog which has been updated nearly daily since 1999.
You are already missed, G-Man…
The Long Goodbye. Friday, April 13, 2018: As of today, dangerousmeta! is no longer being actively updated.
Seen at Garret’s and I followed it to read the original. Worth a read, IMO…
On this day in 1999, I joined a substantial number of people in starting a blog. Then mine was called ‘blivet’. blivet was on EditThisPage though many were using other hosts and software such as Blogger. This was long before whatever has been proclaimed as ‘The Start of Blogging’ like ‘War Blogs’, ‘Mommy Blogs’, etc. It was a longer form, prior to the idea that you could use 144 characters to communicate something besides a grocery list.
Happy 18th anniversary to all the bloggers there at the start and the friends I made then. I will not attempt a listing as I will forget someone and feel horrible.
Here’s to 18 more!
Garret on the possibility of National Park admission fees skyrocketing…
As someone who lives around these parks, I’d like to make a few comments to give some needed illumination on the subject. The media’s using this for cheap shots, and it’s more serious than that:

I know several people who live in Florida; Reno, Commander Dave, Claudine, and Summer. I’m sure I’ve forgotten someone… Please keep yourselves safe.

Dave Rogers at Nice Marmot observes both New Year’s and 15 years at the blog thing.
Happy 15 years and Happy New Year’s, Dave!
I note with pleasure that Dave comments on the (as yet far from) groundswell that is the resurgence of blogging. Yea us! 🙂 [edited]
Long time bloggers from the EditThisPage universe may remember Dave Rogers (aka, Commander Dave, blogging at Time’s Shadow, Groundhog Day, Nice Marmot). His father Jack (Sailor Jack) passed last night. Our thoughts are with the Rogers family and with Dave.
I’m here with Ian at his Grandparent’s house for the Thursday wedding of the flowergirl from Audrey and my wedding in 1997. Katie is now a college edumificated woman off on her own teaching school in Alaska. I’ll be returning to Nevada on Sunday while Ian will be here until the first week in August. Do I miss 114°F+ temperatures in southern Nevada? Not one freakin’ bit. [It was 115.6°F today.]
Thus far, we’ve been to the Leonardo daVinci exhibit, Da Vinci Machines, and got to see my fellow Anthro gradual school alumni, Claudia Woodman for the first time in like, three years. Hi Claudia!
