Since I have nothing to write about I will make something up.  How wonderful to tramp through the orange peel of someone else's sword fish.  How ridiculous is it to make a New Year's resolution to write something on my blog every day of the year?  What happens when I have nothing to say?

So I went to and the first thing that came up was  Not very useful - and it is in Croatian to boot!  You can find out what language it is with Google's translation tool.  It has an auto-detect option.  That is, it automatically detects the language, it doesn't find your car if you have misplaced it on New Year's eve.

Then I came across something a little weird.  A love affair with goat.  But the guy spends more time designing and selling templates for pumpkins now.  His Goatee Style web address is and his Zombie pumpkin web site is but I have embedded the goat romance here.  It may not satisfy the Bronies but Groaties need their fix too.

After this all I got was crap so I have given up on - It's a fail.

So I tried stubleupon and came across which was a bit nifty.

And I found a quote for which I can't locate the origin but it goes...

"Before you judge others or claim any absolute truth, consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are travelling at 220 kilometres per second across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not 'you'. The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don't just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colours you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum."

which is sort of a bit interesting.  Before the internet I used to think these things were very interesting.  Has the internet dulled my sense of wonder?  I wonder!

Well I might get the hang of stumbleupon one day but after some time of stumbling I did come across the Osaka City Station Water Fountain Clock.  It is something else.  Words can't do it justice you will just have to watch it for yourself...

Now I have to go get dinner;  Lots of garlic, tomatoes and noodles.

(If that does not remain the most boring entry this year I will cut of my ... something.)
