Out Like A Lamb

Well, this is the last post of March, my first complete month blogging. The name comes from ancient Rome, when March was the first month of the year and called Martius after Mars, the Roman god of war (Ares in the Greek). In Rome, where they have a Mediterranean climate, March is the first month of spring, a logical point for the beginning of the year as well as the start of the military campaign season; I'll discretely forego any references to the war in Iraq and/or the ongoing presidential primaries.

So as we pass this milestone I'd like to express my sincere appreciation to anyone and everyone who has taken the time out of their days to read my stuff thus far. I don't just mean my vocal friends and family members but also the silent, anonymous handful of folks from around the country whom I've never met but still check in here from time to time.

I'd also like to make a request of you all: if you enjoy what you see, please leave a comment. If you don't like something, please comment as well (courtesy is appreciated). And if you find anything you think would be of interest to the small band of readers here, feel free to drop me an email at the address in the blue blogspot bar at the top of the page. I love getting suggestions for material and I read every one I receive. I can't guarantee that all submissions will make the cut but all are certainly welcomed.

Most importantly if you really like what you read here, please recommend the blog to someone else or link to it from your own sites. I admittedly started this merely as a personal outlet but it's been a lot more fun to do as more people have joined in, and the more folks you bring with you means that I'll try that much harder to create something that interests/entertains/offends everyone equally. I'll talk to you again in April, and thanks again.

Funny stuff, but I'd place money on this not getting past me.
