Sometimes I like to analyze my keyword stats so I know how people are finding my blog, sometimes I wish I hadn’t looked.

Tonight, I saw thirteen visits from someone today looking for a blog about the beauty of circumcisi*n. Thirteen. I don’t think they found what they were looking for, since they kept coming back, obviously still, you know – searching…and I don’t know that it was my witty reparte that was keeping them entertained. *Shudder* Is there anything beautiful about that particular procedure? Someone want to enlighten me here?

Now I DO hope that the lady in New Mexico that was looking for a crock pot breakfast recipe will try this one. Because it’s really good. And no, my stats didn’t tell me it was a woman…common sense did. Do you know any men that use crockpots? Or search for breakfast recipes on the interweb? (and have you noticed that for someone who loves looking on the bright side of things how many of my recipes include the word “serious”?)

And would you believe that dear little Logan is still garnering me at least 50-100 hits a week? Unbelievable. So is his story. Check it out here if you haven’t already heard it.

For the person that found my blog by googling “Are there snakes everywhere in Texas?” My answer? Umm…YES. That’s like asking if there are Eskimos in Alaska. There’s no getting away from them – but us Texans are pretty adaptable human beings. We have learned that we can peacefully co-exist with all manner and sorts of snakes as long as we are in our cars and can run over the suckers. Or “hoe” ’em to death. Whatever works. Like I said, it’s peaceful out in the country.

I offer up my apologies to the person who was searching for bridal shower devotions and came up with this photo. I am having a difficult time with the post and it is taking a lot longer than I sexpected expected because of the use of the word sex. This is a family friendly blog and I do not want to offend the delicate sensibilites of my mother-in-law and my sister…the only two people who read my blog with any regularity. I’m still trying to figure that one out.

For the poor soul who googled “is your iPod ruined if it gets wet?” the answer is a definite “yes”. Especially if you wash it in the washing machine. At least that’s Melodee’s experience. I wouldn’t advise getting it wet. And if you do, I hope you’ve purchased insurance. And if you purchased insurance, don’t tell them you got it wet. Which wouldn’t be the truth, so nevermind…you’re seriously messed up. Just don’t get it wet, ‘k?

And lastly, I don’t think I’ve ever recited that famous speech by Abraham Lincoln…you know the one…oh…what’s it called? Oh yeah. The Gettysburg Address. So for my dear friend (you know who you are) who googled it and somehow landed on my blog, here it is compliments of The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition — because I just couldn’t pull it out of my memory banks 27 years after learning it. I’m only human. That’s why we have the internet. To do our thinking for us. Thanks Google. Oh…and Al Gore.

Gettysburg Address

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    I get such a kick out of reading my keywords as well. Some of them I can totally go, “Oh yeah, I know what post that was.” And some of them make me say, “How in the world did that search bring up my blog?” LOL

    I don’t get a lot of keyword Google searches, but some of the ones I’ve gotten are puzzling. I do enjoy when bloggers post the kinds of searches that have landed people at their sites because some of them are just crazy. It’s good for a laugh.

    My daughter washed he iPod shuffle and it died. My son? Dropped his iPod nano two days before Christmas in the bamboo near the lake at my uncle’s. Tons of rain and a month later, my uncle finds it. Sends it. We put it in a ZipLoc bag with some of those little moisture sucker upper things from show boxes and pill bottle for a week and … it works! Amazing.
