26 Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 13 Dec 2009

Humor, news, poetry, funny quotes - these blogs have it all.



I've collected a number of these old mechanical monstrosity typewriters - aren't they beautiful?

You know you are destined to be a writer when you love the smell of ink... and that you when you were a little kid you used to write on your bedroom walls to pretty up the place because you loved the way numbers and letters looked like abstract art! - a sure sign of a budding artist and writer.

Only my mother understood as she was an artist. My father went unamused, ordering me to "live with it" as he wasn't changing the wallpaper (which was so lame and uninspiring it was the reason I "redecorated" in the first place). For anyone else who is an artist you already know my response: I was thrilled to get to keep my artwork - he never did "get it"! :)


From Denny: For my fellow readers who can only check in as time permits from your busy schedules - especially this holiday season - here's a run-down of this week's posts, your choice!

Posts Roundup at Dennys Blogs - 6 Dec 2009



From Denny: This week at least I loaded the stories I wanted to post about, then finally got the time this weekend to finish writing and post them!

Dennys Global Politics:

Assassins Security Recipe For Disaster: Obama State Dinner - Then the worst scenario of all: A well-trained or motivated assassin could have cleaned house on the top tier of our government - President, Vice President, Speaker of the House and Chief of Staff. That would have left us with Senator Pro-tem, Senator Byrd from West Virginia to run the country, an aging 90 years plus man in poor health.

Obamas Unwelcome Afghan Strategy, Reactions and a Lame Congress - Republicans complained about Obama not wanting to continue the war indefinitely while Democrats worry about the cost of a protracted war, circulating the lame idea of a war tax to fund the recent surge on an already burdened depressed economy.

Prez Obama Lays Out Bleak New Afghanistan Strategy - "And Karzai is a sorry excuse for what passes for good government. What started out with great promise years ago has become a farce. He now looks like a bejeweled weasel sitting on a pile of gold: American foreign aid money."

UKs Brown Overlooks Slain Soldiers: Again

Obama Family Lights National Christmas Tree of Hope

Obama Doing His Positive Affirmations: Hosts Jobs Summit

Pakistan Unknown Heroes Work to Defend Country Against Taliban

Iran Jails Irani-American Woman Protesting Elections - An Iranian-American female grad student went to Iran to study and document women's issues in Iran. That didn't sit well with the local government soon after she arrived and they threw her into jail.

From Denny: It's been quite a wild ride this past year! Thanks for coming along and keeping me company while I journeyed through the blogosphere.

I really had no clue as to where I was going with this blog and the spin-off blogs but I jumped in feet first anyway, never much worrying about what others thought. How else are you going to learn about something unless you are willing to go on the journey of discovery and sometimes look lame hanging out on a limb?

When the world economy took a turn for the worst I threw out my original scenario for this blog to include teachings on writing and poetry as I discovered there were already plenty of sites doing that. When I witnessed on the news, and first hand, just how much so many people were suffering, I chose to respond with adding a lot more humor to all my blogs, even developing two other humor blogs. I've always found humor as a great stress reliever and, sometimes, you actually learn something new in the process - like those addicting cheeky quotes.

Looking back upon the year I remember when I was thrilled to get 25 people visiting my blogs in a month! :) Now? At this point, once I figured out the only way people would find me is to place all my significant blog posts into various search engines and on a few social sites. Now there are over 4,000 or more a week visiting and growing! I had no idea the internet was such a fun playground...

There are a lot of international readers besides my fellow Americans. There are our Canadian and Mexican cousins next door and British cousins in the UK across, what the Atlantic Ocean is affectionately known as, The Pond. Hello out there to everyone visiting from Serbia and Montenegro, the Ukraine, Indonesia, Romania, Turkey, Pakistan, Greece, India, New Zealand, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, China, Japan, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Portugal, Italy, France and Spain! Thanks for visiting!

At best I had hoped for 10 popular posts you enjoyed through the year. To my amazement there's a huge list of favorites you threw up on social sites like facebook, digg, stumbleupon and emailed to your friends and family. The stats sites I use to help me determine how well a post does, also does not give me the "who," so let me say thank you to those of you (though you are anonymous) who have supported this blog and me in this way: huge THANK YOOOOU!!!! Maybe I should take up yodelling? :)

This year has been a lot of fun as I've tried to figure out what you enjoy reading and find amusing for a chuckle. If there is something you would like to see featured more often on The Social Poets, shoot me an email! Denny Lyon: warriorspearl@gmail.com. Always glad to hear from you!

I'll keep adding links to this post through the rest of the year and link this post on the sidebar so you can easily reference it. Now the blog should load faster too without so many links on the sidebar, a win-win! :)

One more thing: all these fun holiday animations and clip art are FREE to download for use on your blog. I'll go hunt down that bookmark to let you know exactly where I found these...

Funny Posts Roundup at Dennys Funny Quotes - 1 Dec 2009

Keep laughing at this funny blog to get through your work week.



What'd ya say? I'm so smart? But are you sure about that?

From Denny: OK, so I've been slacking off for the holidays... :) What can I say? I've been in a "food coma"? Nice try; Thanksgiving Day was last week... My only defense would be that food comas take a long time from which to recover, uh, ok, equally lame...

This morning I've been working on Dennys Funny Quotes ever since I found out Blogger only backs up posts. Sweet. All those category lists which took hours and hours to build are basically toast so I've been creating posts of all my categories.

For a grin today take a look at what I've rounded up so far:

Funny Retirement Quotes

Funny Friendship Quotes

Funny Ironic Humor Quotes

Funny Crazy Cat Quotes

Funny Quotes About Quotations

Funny Cooking Quotes

Funny Conan OBrien Quotes

Funny Jay Leno Quotes

Funny Inspirational Quotes

*** Try not to dine too much you might end up in a funny quotes coma! Save room in your mind tummy for tomorrow's Cheeky Quote Day! :)
