Gristmill Blog Launched Despite Killer Virus Prediction

Despite predictions of a potentially devastating computer virus just waiting to be unleashed, I decided to go ahead and post The Gristmill anyway. With my previous attempts at blogging having been somewhat unsuccessful, I was a little hesitant to get involved again, but there's just too much going on right now to sit back and stay on the sidelines. Of course, the Economy is first and foremost on every one's mind, but let's not forget about all the other things out there that bear mentioning. I am hopeful that this long overdue project will not only serve as an electronic bully pulpit for me to rant n' rave about what's wrong with the world, but will also serve as a means for exploring ways to fix things. If it furthers my friendships and career in the process, that would be a welcome outcome indeed. And in speaking of friendships and careers, please take a moment to notice the Etiquette Tip of the Day. I included it not to imply that any of my friends or family need any help in this area, but because it seemed like a useful and entertaining tidbit to start off the blog with. It also works nicely with the theme of my template. So, for all of you who have been gracious enough to indulge me by reading this premier edition of The Gristmill, thanks for your interest, and look forward to more postings soon!
