Astute observers may have noticed the URL for the blog has changed from to That’s simply a domain registration change, and should be pretty transparent to you the user. Hopefully, you haven’t even had to update your bookmarks. Going to the old address simply redirects here.

Secondly, you’ll notice starting today that ads have been accepted here. This is a partnership program with WordPress. They control the selection and rates of the ads. I get the money. Hopefully. I certainly don’t expect to retire on the proceeds. And I hope you, gentle reader, don’t find them too burdensome. I’m not going to be paid strictly on views or clicks, but neither would hurt. If I can generate enough to pay for the domain registration change, great. And if there’s enough to start saving for a replacement laptop, even better.

I don’t think we’re going to see any other major format changes here. But if you have suggestions, drop a comment or an email.

Thanks for your terrific support.

  1. We need a Milversion of McCain’s Rule 5. I do not, however, want to see some snarky thing like URR in a thong. That would require more brain bleach than has ever, or could possibly, be made. Some things once seen, just can not be unseen.

    1. It’s hard to find good pics of US servicewomen. Though I could toss the ladies a gimme and post some good pics of GIs once a while. I’ve always had it in the back of my mind to do a LH for the ladies. Once.

  2. Congratulations, Brad! I’ll be sure to do my clicky part now and then. 🙂

    You should do the Amazon affiliate thing too, get a cut of people’s amazon purchases.

  3. Hi Brad,

    Gentle readers??? I don’t know about them. What about the “Grumpy” Auld Vets? I figure we were still might have a few of them still lurking in the shadows of your website.

    Quartermaster, it would be nice if our brain had a simple “eject” button. Your first comment will give me nightmares, beyond belief. I do believe this would be a case of having radically too much information or information overload. 🙂

    1. The mere thought of URR in his skivies is info overload beyond anyone’s most malicious nightmares. There are some things that just can’t be unseen, and that’s one of them. Brain bleach that strong would dissolve the known universe and result in charges of crimes against humanity, if humanity even existed afterwards.

      I’m very sorry (and URR will admit I’m very sorry) that I even broached the subject. Brad, as condign punishment you may now ban me for now and eternity.

  4. Congrats on the change, it will give you some independence. Putting some ads to pay the bills is A-OK in my book. My ads help to bring in a few hundred each month …. and it is extra money that I always appreciate.

  5. Art..I had a convo with Lex re: the Amazon change back to allowing Californians to buy through them, as they had made the reverse..he was looking into re signing with them last year about this time..but his schedule was too hectic to set it up..So you may look into it again..wpr/Don Wasinger

    1. I’m all set except for setting up the widget. I’ve got help on the way for that. Thanks, DWAS. Give your lovely bride a smooch for me, and as soon as I get set up, how about buying a new house or car via the search box?
