Time to make this blog live again.

The president's been elected. Puyallup School District was sued. Lorri and I still have our jobs. The world goes on and on, and I've more or less survived.

The Christmas season has more or less ended, and we survived the great Snowpocalypse '08 more or less intact.

There is only one question left to answer: why is this blog here and what am I going to do with it?

Perhaps it will be limited to simple noodling and journaling about my life-what I'm doing on a day to day basis-what I'm reading and listening to. I do have a little project I've become quite interested in outside of miniature gaming and that is the Seattle General Strike of 1919. I think it is a fascinating event that many have an interest in, but little is written about. There is a wonderful website at the University of Washington that kind of sets one on the path of further research that I hope to follow over the years. I also hope to share my reading and research here at this blog, which is appropriately named for the topic.

I'm sure I'll have something ridiculous to say about politics, movies and spousal relations too, but the most important thing is that I say something (the blog name is simply too good to waste.)
