How To Get Here - 6/21/06

And you thought I'd forgotten... Ladies and Gentlemen, the long-anticipated return of How To Get Here -- the feature which asks the non-musical question, "So, how do so many people end up at Attention Span?" Just look at the new inroads to Attention Span!

emails of the rich pastors in the usa - I'm guessing that this searcher goes by the name of Mubaso and claims to be in the Ivory Coast and will give up a cut of his multi-million dollar fortune if these rich pastors will send over a couple of million in seed money.

indycar hygiene product - I'm not sure what this searcher was thinking, but I can tell you it's not wise to brush your teeth with oil-dry. However there's nothing like driving 220 m.p.h. to get rid of excess cologne smell.

history of asparagas - Would someone PLEASE get this searcher a real hobby?

cross bread bassett hound - OK, a cross on Good Friday, the bread and the wine... that much I understand. But please explain again how a bassett hound fits into the gospels. After feeding the 5000, weren't there 12 bassetts full left over?

a name was laura, she was a showgirl, copacabana - Oh great! Now I'm getting hits from Barry Manilow fans who don't know IT'S LOLA!!! I'm not sure if that makes me better off or worse because I recognized the mistake...

duct tape wallet with hosanna - Kinda like Certs with retcyn, right?

things that can be used as a weapon - Apparently McGyver is doing his homework in the blogosphere.

false preachers have big churches and dress up flashy with diamonds - This hit didn't come from google. It was from grossgeneralizations.com.

And of course, there is always the road from Christian Carnival #127, hosted by The Bible Archive. And if you're lost with the whole "robots made from five lions" theme, join the club. Some days I feel more out of touch than others.

And for some more great Summer reading, there is always Christian Carnival #126 at Nerd Family, Christian Carnival #125 at Random Acts of Verbiage, and Christian Carnival #124 at Parableman.

Hehe.....you do get some rather intersting searches. I've stopped looking at my Google hits since I posted that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt named their daughter the same thing as my daughter.....that's all the hits I ever get now. Sigh....

But yours are terribly funny! :D

Rev,

This is pretty funny. Forgive my ignorance, but how do you track your google hits? Is it a service you sign up for or a special counter or tracker or what? if you have a chance to enlighten me through a comment here, I'll check back. If not I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.

mac - most site counters enable you to see just how bizarre your visitors are... ;)

Mine is from sitemeter dot com

They just get more and more bizarre, don't they?

I know this is on the verge of being off topic, but its a burning issue in me. I'm a father of 2 little boys and i'm constantly appauled at what I find on the television. I own alot of website filtering software to help with the content issues of the internet. I would like to hear what you think about television programming and children? I suggust posting about it as I think there are many other people interested in hearing what you have to say.

Most television program is best viewed by grown-ups... at least 95 and older. ;)

I'll put that topic on the list and see if I can expand on those thoughts in the near future, Mark.

Wow, that issues right on the money for me. I have the same problem, I did however hear about this Tivo program or something while listening to the radio. Does anybody know about this. Its some sort of parental control feature (If i recall correctly). You guys might want to check this out!

Hey, I just happened back here where I've already been and already forgotten I've been. But Blest With Sons (blestwithsons.com) has an excellent series on television viewing on her site. You can find it in the sidebar at the top right of her blog. It is called American Idol.

I cannot link on blogger I'm afraid. I'm terribly dense like that.

I'm going along, reading your blog and enjoying your thoughtful posts - and now I've got Copacabana playing in my head!

(I'll keep reading anyway.)
