A Little Whine, A Little Cheese, A Little Blogging, If You Please

You may roll your eyes, it's okay. Rhyming post titles are lame in the worst way but *I* am the worst way (or perhaps being German it is the wurst way).

The Whine:
I have been busy. I do enjoy the blogging experience but it takes time and I am prone to laziness on occasion. My blog's former description, "A procrastinator's view of blogdom" was perhaps more appropriate. I would like to say, I'll try to post more diligently but really, you do get what you pay for.

The Cheese:
I know you can't get enough cheese. And since my blog is The Power of Cheese, I should have a thoroughly cheesy post once in a blue moon.


Nothin' says lovin' like a message written in cheese from a can. Patrick's Cheese-o-matic can seems to have temporarily run out of the glorious orange goo but see the fun messages written by others.

Send a
virtual cheese greeting from Cheese of the Month Club.
Or try
this virtual cheese from the Tillamook, Oregon Cheese Factory.

In
Wisconsin they don't allow you near the cheese... But in Vermont they don't seem to mind your tootsies wriggling through the whey.


Someone once gave me this book as a joke and I actually read it. Now they need a cartoon mouse to tell you how to deal with change? But, a site that lets you click a cheese for more info... well, who wouldn't love that?

Blessed are the cheesemakers, for even they are affected by the wrath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Cheese Market News tells us that, since as much as 70 percent of the North American supply of polyethylene and polypropylene resins used to make packaging for cheese, milk and other dairy products are manufactured along the Gulf Coast, recent hurricanes continue to spell big trouble for the dairy industry.
[A side note that has nothing to do with food other than your ability to cart it from the market, reduced availability of polypropylene will also affect the production and cost of new vehicles made in the US in the next couple of years. Interior door panels, dash boards and many bumpers as well as numerous clips and clamps that hold cars together (though most people never see or pay attention to these things) are manufactured using plastics including polypropylene. I know this tidbit of info because of my former life in a plastics factory. So, if you're in the market for a new vehicle, get it soon.]


So finally after a short break you have a post on your plate. What will you do with it now?
I'm being too weird aren't I? I believe I may need more sleep... or perhaps more coffee.

I recently broke my digital camera but MrG has endeavored to buy me a new one... isn't he a doll?

Check out the Halloween links on the sidebar.
Also not found on the Halloween sidebar but worth checking out: Martha's last minute costume ideas. Love the jelly fish!

Chronicler! I appreciate your visit despite my lazy postingness.

Pretty sure I still need more sleep.
