Pittsburgh vs. San Diego, 8 April 2005

Here are some random thoughts on the first Pirates game of the year I was able to watch.

-Did you know the Padres' mascot - or, at least, the only one I saw - is a freaking monk who dances on the dugout and does all the usual dumb mascot stuff? How bizarre is that?

-Josh Fogg was looking like his usual mediocre self to me until I checked the box score and realized he had struck out five and walked only one. That's a nice outing.

-Craig Wilson has gone from having the worst hair in the big leagues to having merely the worst facial hair in the big leagues. Or the best in both areas, if you're really into Judas Priest and/or porn. (Actually, that's not entirely true: Brett Myers whips Wilson in the Best Porn 'Stache category.) Either way, Wilson had a nice game, with two singles and one of his trademark HBPs. He misplayed a foul ball and swung at some breaking junk down and away, though.

-Tike Redman drew two walks, so I hope you TIVOed this one, because that's not ever going to happen again.

-Miguel Ojeda was the first batter Mike Gonzalez faced, and I was a little confused when Gonzalez started out with some really mediocre-looking stuff. Gonzalez waited until he had a two-strike count against Ojeda, then whiffed him with an amazing glove-popping fastball. He was great after that - his only baserunner was Brian Giles, and that was only after Gonzalez almost nailed Giles with a questionable check-swing with two strikes and then barely missed the strike zone on his last pitch.

Weird. I always thought the Rettop Method was the best for generating traffic. I am going to book mark this blog, nice topics discussed

By the way... I have a traffic site. It pretty much covers Traffic related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

Another new site is about San Diego vacation attractions Our third site is, guess what? Yes, also about San Diego. This site is an information site devoted to San Diego cosmetic surgery doctors. Needless to say, please stop by and visit our sites. Thanks Bob

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
