That other set of loose ends

A quick post to update you readers on some loose ends alluded to here in That Other Blog.

First of all, Elton and I have been producing a podcast: An Apotheosis of a Bombast, on a nearly weekly basis. As of this post, there are 5 episodes available through podbean or itunes. We occasionally do a themed show, but the general format is a bit of an audio blog entry, followed by some weird news, web finds, and then a ranking or quiz. (Hmm, that doesn’t sound nearly as interesting as the podcasts are, haha, but you should check them out.) Woopra suggests that most of you who visit this site already are (yay!), Google Analytics says maybe not so much (boo!)… I hope you will.

On a related note, if you missed the blog post about the origin of that title, you can read it here in the archives.  I should probably organize this site better (and I will at some point), but if you’re relatively new to the site take some time to read some of the older posts.  There are some good things buried in there, if I do say so myself.

I also want to take a moment to encourage you to explore Elton’s website and the podcast he’s been doing with his “missus.” Elton’s been a lot of fun to work with, and I think you’ll enjoy the content he produces.

After several references to my son’s hockey games, the season has ended. His team finished as the league runners-up. The Rangers went 14-2 during the regular season (sweeping every team 3-0 except for the 15 -1 Flyers whom they beat once but lost two twice). The team had a first round bye, and defeated the #3 seed 10-9  to advance to the finals against the Flyers. The Rangers won the first game of a best of three series but lost the next two.

Jay scored a goal in game three to tie the score at 3-3 (he was so excited, and I was so proud) but the Rangers couldn’t pull out the win.

Lacrosse is next on the slate, with the season starting in early March. Lacrosse was the big thing back at Wilton High School (where I grew up), but I never played the sport. So, I guess I’m going to learn.

On a sad note, I recently learned that, Sandy Ryerson, the mother of my friend, Fauna, and her sister Tashaleigh, has died of cancer. I’m embarrassed to say I only learned this a week ago, but Ms. Ryerson passed away in 2006.  Regardless, I want to say that Sandy Ryerson was a very good hearted woman, and my heart goes out to Fauna, Tashaleigh, and their family as a whole. I am sure Ms. Ryerson is sorely missed.

Thank you all for your continued interest in this blog. Please check back, as I hope to update more regularly.
