I'm Just Sayin' -- Coach's Ramblings

Aug. 1, 2012 

Welcome to my 'Whatever I feel like Writing" Basket

I recently promised a photo pal of mine that I would create a web presence
for him.  Like all of us, he wants to start with a 'free' site.  I also promised him I would make sure his site has multiple pages.  So, today I'm learning how to create more than a blog spot Home page.  I'm practicing on my own site, of course.  Let's see how long it takes me to get this page out there.

Vidal Passes Over

Gore Vidal passed away today--one of every few renowned writers who spend their lives stirring up political trouble.  Takes guts.  I read a long tribute to him today and learned that, besides his numerous best-selling novels,  he was consulted on some pretty famous movie scripts...and 'Gore' is a family last name.  His grand pappy Gore and his father, a Vidal, were both national politicians.  According to today's article, Amelia Earhart was Vidal's supposed long-time mistress.  Apparently it's very risky to be a politician's mistress; it seems all to often to be a short-lived proposition.
