The Ark

Somewhere in the Vasoline...

By: RobDaHood, 2:38 PM GMT on November 30, 2009

Welcome to The Ark

Was in a pretty creative place a week ago:
ideas, ambition, motivation...then lots of tech problems to deal with, Thanksgiving and all the associated chaos...
Now my mind is stuck in a bog...struggling to break free,
Somewhere in the Vasoline...



Flies in the Vasoline we are
Sometimes it blows my mind
Keep getting stuck here all the time


It isn't you, isn't me
Search for things you can't see
Going blind, out of reach
Somewhere in the Vasoline.

Giving Thanks!

By: RobDaHood, 11:11 AM GMT on November 26, 2009

Welcome to The Ark


Be Thankful!

We all have days when we feel the whole world is against us. Yeah, everyone deserves a little pity party once in a while and sometimes there is good reason to feel that way.

But, one very important thing I have learned in a roller-coaster life, full of ups and downs is that no matter how bad things seem at the moment, if I only take time to look around me I can always find many things to be thankful for.

The past year has been tough on many of us, yet there is still plenty of good. One only has to look.

I thank you, my blog friends, for helping me to see so much that is good in the world. In sharing our ups, our downs, our humor, our music, and bits and pieces of our lives we have discovered some inspiring and wunderful things, for which I am grateful.

I hope that each of us will take the time today to reflect back over the past year, focusing on all the things that we truly should be thankful for.

I wish you all a peaceful, safe, and joyful Holiday weekend filled with happy memories and the making of new ones.

Happy Arkiversary!

Welcome to The Ark

Well,
believe it or not...this weekend marks the one year anniversary of the launching of The Ark!

It's been a great year of making new friends and getting to know people from all over! Never thought I'd enjoy spending so much of my time here. You've taught me different. Wasn't sure we could get along so well. You've taught me different.

So, this is my chance to thank all my WU friends for making this ole boat such a fun and interesting place for me.

Thank You!!

Now, grab your favorite beverage...help yourself to some cake, and enjoy the voyage!!

The lighter side of life

By: RobDaHood, 4:09 PM GMT on November 12, 2009

Welcome to The Ark

Thought it might be fun to do a blog where we could post funny stories, humorous profundities, witty one liners, songs, etc. about the everyday zany weirdness that we all deal.

(Credit for this one goes to MissNadia for Emailing me two long lists of very humorous but true things today.)

Of course, as always you are free to post music, talk about the weather, or whatever.

Just remember to keep it clean, civil, and friendly.

Have Big Fun!

Thank You Veterans!

By: RobDaHood, 10:08 AM GMT on November 11, 2009

Welcome to The Ark



Thank you Veterans!
Veterans Day, Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, is a day that The United States and many other Nations set aside to honor those who have so faithfully served in their nation's military.

It is a day very special to me as so many of my family, friends, professional associates, and fellow WU members have either served in our armed forces in the past or are currently serving.

I've composed this blog several times in my head overnight, tried to think of something profound or inspirational to say. But when it comes right down to it, all I really want to say is

"Thank you to all our active and former military personnel. You are ALL heroes in my book!"

Hope you enjoy your special day.

To the rest, I would say: I know each of you know at least one Veteran, perhaps sitting in a cubical next to you, maybe a short drive or a phone call away. Take a moment today to call them up or shake their hand and say thank you. It means a lot.

-Rob
