Fictional Real Person

It is three in the morning and I am once again looking at a blank page. I have spent the last two months reading everything I can on a man named Samuel Logan Brengle who was Commissioner in The Salvation Army. He is also the only real person who is a regular character int he stories. For this reason I feel a great deal of pressure to get him right.

On the moral front he wrote several books. So I have little trouble guessing where his moralities lies. This issue that I am having is what kind of man was he. I can figure that he did not cuss and I can get a feeling for what his speech pattern were from his books.

I simply do not know that I am doing the man justice.

Still as I ponder him I wonder how many people out there know who he was. Is he famous enough that people would recognize if my character is a good representation of the real man?

Cleaning Up

As I look around the old blog it is apparent there needs to be some redding up around here. No that is not a way to say there is not enough communism on the blog. That is a Pittsburgh expression for cleaning up for all two of my international readers. It has not gone unnoticed that I have a bunch of stuff cluttering up the place. Several of the blogs I used to follow have gone fallow. And still their links live on here. Well I think I will take some time to see what is still working and get rid of what is not working.

I still like the over all format with the three columns. It gives me the space to put up all kinds of junk. Oh and by the way here is a random Ramstien Video. I am not sure what is going on here. Still there it is.

Well that is it for now. Yes I know that was mostly pointless. Still, that is where things are at the moment. Be safe out there and keep your stick on the ice.

Random Stuff

It was another fun day of sewing and other random things for the Clown Brigade. Everyone needs apparatus bags for everyone. That is the one down side of everyone getting better. The better they get the more they can juggle. The more they can juggle the more stuff they need to carry around. The more they carry around the bigger the bag they need to carry everything in.

It is a viscous cycle. Well I suppose I cannot blame them for paying attention and getting better.

There is some interesting stuff on the COAI front. Two of the young people in my group will be joining the education committee for the COAI's local chapter. They have each taught or assisted with five or six lessons so they have already been helping with the committee.

The interesting thing is that these young people do not have a vote in how the Tri Rivers Ally of the COAI does things. A couple of them realize this is unfair that they pay the same dues and cannot vote.  Also three of them have taught lessons this year when half the members locally prefer not to help with teaching new clowns. They have faith that eventually they will be treated fairly.

The rub is that the bylaws committee has been suspended for the rest of the year. So there is no chance this issue can be fixed at this point. Well it can be but it would require bringing them up in a general meeting causing chaos. Yes, talking about bylaws in our meeting causes horrible fights. This is the reason the Bylaws committee was put together in the first place.

 Also the Ally has been in bad way the last couple years. Membership is shrinking and it has been hard to find people to do shows. Also when ever something new is tried it annoys half the existing people in the ally. So we do not want to change to accommodate new people.  It is tough road to navigate. Actually it is a road that cannot be navigated. Someone must be annoyed while things get better.

On the blogging front I am trying to make an effort here. I am not really sure if anyone cares about the random junk that I am throwing up on this thing. Still, it is something to do.

Be safe out there and keep your stick on the ice.

No Good Comments

I am debating if I want more people to read this blog or not. I am sure that when I started it I wanted everyone to give it a read. I am not sure that I have imparted any wisdom or anything useful. I do not think I have a following or regular readers. The comments are rubbish from people advertising something. So what is the point? I am not sure.
