« Part 109: A new project begins Part 110 of Extremely Average series Part 111: Lawn Care...Woodworking's Evil Twin »

Hello All,

What do Alfred Lord Tennyson, Bill Clinton and I have in common? Ok, not much at all. In fact, my attempt at loosely connecting the three of us, is not well executed at all. That being said, this is one of my better blog pieces. Ok, maybe it isn. I really don’t know. I do know that I very much enjoyed it. I hope you will too. :-)

Hi Brian, I’m glad you enjoyed your blog today because I didn’t. It cost me probably three hours of sleep and I still don’t have any idea what you’re trying to make. Three tools in one, bah, can’t be done. It was the quote from A,LT that really did it for me though. The last time I read his name, I didn’t have Google and Wiki. This time I did and I got to find out if his name was Lord, if he thought he was Lord, or whatever. But, that wasn’t enough because I was also reminded of one of my favorite poems and it was only a few clicks away. But, did you know you could listen to an actual recording of A,LT’s voice reading his poems? Neither did I. Did you further know that in order to listen, you have to have RealPlayer installed? Me neither. Well that took a while to download and they had to close my browser to do the install. Do you know RealPlayer will automatically import all the media files on your computer into a Library if you click the button after the install? Too tempting so I did it. I had over 22,000 files to import. Guess that took about an hour. So, after that, I couldn’t resist a brief look at the song list. Another hour. Then finally, I had to reconstruct the clickstory to the place I could listen to the poet reading a poem recorded in the 19th century. Very cool. Anyway, you need to stick to woodworking. I can’t afford to loose anymore sleep.

Ha… good post. But, it’s more like George W. Bush. “Sock and Awe” but in the end I still don’t know what it was for!
