Alduce Me To Introlow Myslef (2)

My apologies if the first version of this post is still in your reader. I didn't like the original video I had posted so I shot another because YouTube or Blogger wouldn't upload my second one due to length.

And here's the video that you've all been waiting for. You got a just a tantalizing taste of it yesterday, and today, you get the entire overstuffed enchilada.

I do want to make you aware of a few things though:

1} Today is officially my b'day as I am now 46 years old young.

2} I am not, repeat, I am not Travis Erwin's long lost cousin seven times removed. You will make that erroneous assumption after about ten seconds of viewing pleasure. Or you might make the assumption that I am Wilfred Brimley's or David Crosby's long lost cousin seven times removed as well. All of which is untrue.

3} This concludes the 3rd annual Blog Anniversary/Birthday Extravaganza on Cedar's Mountain.

Note: I apologize for the poor sound quality of the video. Believe it or not, I do have a quiet voice, so if you have access to a pair of headphones, it will greatly enhance your listening pleasre.


  1. Wonderful to see you, G! I hope you have an amazing Birthday Day! I've been having issues with commenting on blogger, but hopefully this actually goes through!

  2. Happy birthday. maybe I said that. Good to hear your voice.

  3. Ahhhhh - I am in a cafe and have put the volume up to 100% and still can't hear! I will have to try again later in the quiet of my study..

    Happy Bday G:)

  4. Happy birthday, G!!! I can only view your video here at work - something is wrong with my sound card. It's good to see you though. Have a great day.

  5. Talon: Thanks, and the comment did go through. I'm making up pretty good with the presents (in the form of gift cards) so it's been a boffo day.

    Charles: Thanks for your wishes and congrats.

    It's good be heard every once in a great while.

    R: Thankee very much. :D

    Jane: The unfortunate thing about this camera is that it has a default setting for volume. Probably would come out louder if you wore headphones.

    Lynn: Thanks. The sound quality isn't too great on the bulk of the video, so hopefully its not your sound card.

  6. Heard it all this time G!

    Good to meet in the flesh so to speak:)

    Your view reminds me of my old family home - we lived backing onto woods and a hill too....I miss that view:( Nothing like waking up to nature:)

  7. Jane: Glad you were able to hear it this time around, and I'm glad you were able to meet me in the "flesh".

    I really do enjoy waking up to the sounds of the mountain no matter what day of the week it may be.

  8. ExtraO: Thankee. And welcome back to the land of the blog. Hope you're doing well these days.

  9. Happy belated birthday G! How cool that you did a vlog. It's really great to see and hear you. Even though my boys are Giants' fans, I know that they would like your hat!

  10. Kelly: Thanks. It really was an adventure in trying to get this filmed and in the can.

    Glad you enjoyed it.

  11. Oop, I'm a day late and a dollar short. Happy belated birthday wishes! Well, if I wish you a great year, I'm not too late, so let it be a good one, filled with health, happiness, and abundance. :-)

  12. S: Thankee, thankee, thankee.

    It's never too late to wish someone a happy birthday or a great year.

    Both are accepted in the spirit that they were given.

  13. Damn I missed your birthday!! Sorry. I hope you had a great day. Loved the video and getting to see you in the real, well closer than a photo anyway.

    You live in such a peaceful area!

  14. Joe: It was a pretty relaxing day. Most of the family was camping, so only the missus was around to help me celebrate. Been taking a very long holiday weekend, sort of a mini vacation one might say.

    Glad you liked the video and the area indeed is quite soothing for the soul from time to time.

  15. Randomy! Love it!! :)

    It was great to finally see and hear you "in person," and I love your neighborhood -- it reminds me very much of where I used to live in New Jersey. Hope you're having a nice Memorial Day! :)

  16. Lisa: Thanks.

    I really didn't have anything prepared to work from, so I had to adlib big time while filming this.

    Glad you liked it. :D

  17. Finally got to BBMs to see your video- Happy Blogo-b-Day Younger Day! Hope the party was good- (Did you get a web-cam???) You're younger than I btw

    Good to see some one outside of MA still wears Pats stuff. I remember the Whalers!

    Pretty good for off the top of your head, I think!
    You seem to have more going on than me, at least!

  18. Snaggle: Thanks.

    I'm younger than you? I find that hard to believe.

    No web cam, just gift cards from B&N and Amazon.

    I always wear Patriots stuff. Not too mnay Pats fans at my job, but I like to be unique.


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
