“Another person with a gun won’t necessarily help you.”

dangerousmeta!: “My favorite thing to do for people who believe ‘more guns’ is the answer, is to drive them to the graveyard in Cimarron, New Mexico. The original “Wild West.” Often held up as some sort of John Wayne version of perfect American society. Well, here’s that society, as reflected in the cemetery:

Everyone had guns.

And they shot everyone.

Men. Women. Children. Dear lord, they even SHOT THE TOWN PREACHER.”

18 years + 8 days

I just realized that I missed this weblog’s 18th anniversary last week on January 25th. It’s all grown up now…

Anniversary

Sixteen years ago I started this weblog in 2000. On this day in…
2001
2002
2003
2004
2005 (a day late)
2006
2007
2008 (16 days late)

2010
2011 (three days late)
2012
2013
2014 (eleven days late, though I posted in the meantime)

… and in 2015 I apparently forgot the anniversary altogether, but at least the post closest to January 25th contains an interesting link to a list of 10 Great National Parks [in the US] You’ve Never Heard Of. André and I have actually been to five of the parks featured in the article, but we might check the other five out too sometime in the future.

If you think there is a National Park (or National Monument, or other place of interest) missing from the list that we should put on our list – especially if it’s in the Southwestern USA – please let me know!

Thirteen!

I just realized that my little weblog turns thirteen years old today! Wow, a teenager… let’s hope it doesn’t start behaving like its age and acting out now. ;-)

This was my first entry (wow, don’t André and I look young?), and you can find the other “birthday entries” here: 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012.

Ah, nostalgia… back then (September 1999, first digital photo that exists of me):

And now (July 2012 actually):
