Happy 10,000

Late Tuesday afternoon The Mint Julep recorded its 10,000th page load. While that is not really a whole lot compared to most of the other guys, 10,000 is quite a bit more than I ever envisioned landing here. So, hey, thanks to all who read this from time to time. I hope it gives you something fun to do, or at least helps waste a little time.

By the way, apologies are in order for not updating this more often. I have a lot on my plate this fall, and I've gotta stick to my priorities - which are unfortunately not making The Mint Julep as awesome as it could be.

Woman Robs Banks While on Her Cell Phone

This is the headline that I had the pleasure of seeing this lovely Friday morning. I suppose this post somehow follows upon my previous rant about cell-phone use; however, I don't even know what to make of this. I can't tell if this woman is incredibly arrogant, incredibly stupid, a little of both, or what. Of course this makes me mad, but I am still trying to comprehend this behavior. In fact, my unhappiness is probably derived from me not being able to understand this woman and her actions. Anyway, I am going to go eat breakfast and ruminate over this some more.

Happy Friday

Good Value?

According to this site, The Mint Julep blog is worth $3,387.24. That seemed to be a surprisingly high price for this blog, that being the case, if there are any interested buyers, I would be willing to go as low as $3,000.00.
