"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

This is run by a good friend who keeps our social lives on the upbeat side of things. As a professional story teller her blog is always a delight.
The guy running this blog is another good friend who will soon marry another good friend of mine. He writes about an number of things that come to his head.
Another good friend keeps this blog going. She is the friend who won the heart of Tungsten above. J~ often writes reviews for games and articles here and there for game magazines and the like.
In the words of his own blog, this good friend writes, "Intemperate rantings from a passionate developer, sometimes manager, and general all-round techno-geek." His blog is peppered with tidbits from his personal life
This is a somewhat professional blog that often has tidbits of from his personal life. The Rampant Coyote is a good friend who is married to our social director--see above. He writes mostly about his experiences of being a full time game developer/part time indie

This blog is actually run by a couple of guys. One of them is a good friend. They may seem a little crazy on the surface, but I know better. Of course, they would not want me to tell you that.


This blog cannot be left from my list. Right after I started my own blog a few years back I stumbled on this political blog and have never left. From his blog I have met many others whose blogs I visit regularly


There are many other great blogs out there. But I wanted to give these my thumbs up.

Well, thankee for the recognition.

In response, Sciolistsalmagundi would like to thank the voices in our heads that tell us what to write, the sheer insanity of this planet that provides us with fodder, and Elvis.

Ever since I learned to turn my tin-foil hat exactly 32 degrees west from true north, the creativity has just simply flowed. I would invite the readers of this blog to take a look at the site and the short stories there. The articles are, naturally, truly brilliant and extraordinary.

I also, of course, wish to thank the kind hostess of this wonderful blog for recognizing that madness can be entertaining, no matter what the Illuminati writes about us. Kelly is a wonderful Human Being in all of the senses of the term. Kelly is an enormously important human in respects to her family, and her example of selflessness is shared by her husband. We should all do well to be anything like this couple, and I take off my tin hat (for only seconds, because of the voices) in a salute to her and her beautiful family.

Thank you, Kelly, for just being here for the rest of us.

I still haven't figured out what to say.

I think you better keep your tin hat on...that's it...that's what I will say!

I also agree 100% on everything you said about Kelly. She is an extraordinary woman with whom I am pleased and honored to call my friend. She NEVER gets mad at me; even when I go hog wild with the delete key at times!!!

hmmm...perhaps I should rethink this blog entry....ya'll got your hats on sideways.

Maybe you two have had too much Texas air to breathe.

Seriously, aww...thank you, ya'll are the best!

If YOU had a blog that could be seen it would be here, too.

I am so blessed to have incredible friends!!!

Kelly, every time I come to your blog (which is often), I am soo very envious of the way you have been stable with not only this blog but your web site as well. When I see ALL the many different blogs you are in communications with that are listed here, this is what I envy. I have tried sooo very hard over the years to express my thoughts, and for people to read, comment and like my writings at the same time. I've always fallen short (no pun intended!). I do know that because of my jumping around and changing emails, web sites, etc....I've lost what I long for in the process. If I would have never deleted my lighthouse web site, it might have looked just as good as yours does, and who knows, I might have been 'famous' right along with you! I long for what you have here.

I hang my head in shame...

Now, now, Starla, I would not say that I come anywhere near being famous. There are several of us, with blogs mentioned within this blog entry who wonder if anyone reads their blog at all.

I know that there are MANY entries that don't get any notice at all on my own blog.

I will say this, your website was cool. Ya, I designed the look, but YOU, my dear, provided the content.

Do NOT be afraid of what people will think of you. They might not agree with you. They might not appreciate what you do, but that does not matter. YOU appreciate it because it is you.

You have no reason to hang your head...MISS Senior at UTSA!!!!!

Hey Starla,

Kelly is right, you know. There should never be a place where you are afraid of being who and what you are. Confidence comes from the inner self, and nothing can give that to you except your own self.

Howdy Phelonius,

Care to explain your Elvis statment???

And yes, I agree with you 100% I have come a long way regarding my self worth. I never thought I had an opinion for anything (if you've been raised in a family with the 'golden child' for a brother!). I used to belong to a few message boards, and they really did my self esteem in. After that, I was afraid to even speak a word on the Internet.

It does come with growth within yourself, and I am finally realizing that yes, I too, have a voice. (I can't sing worth a dime though I try....LOL)

I have posted my opinions on a few blogs. I like to frequent a few political blogs. Boy, I tell ya, if there is a place with strong opinions that would be it. There are times when I have felt like leaving.

A deep breath and a good talk with myself or a friend and I hop back in. YOU can do it too.

You know what would do you a world of good?? Set up a blog like this...don't worry about what people will think or say or WHO sees it.

I know...BIG leap of faith!! ]

But, I have what I have because I made the leap. I posted stuff that was of interest to ME and if by chance anyone likes what I say...BONUS! But no big deal otherwise.

Howdy back, Starla!

The Internet can be a pretty vicious place, alright. There are not many people in the 'blog-osphere' that I really give a flip for their opinion. It reminds me of the way that people drive. They feel powerful and anonymous, so they throw mean gestures and act like asses to people that, if they were face to face in their living room, they would not act so.

Kelly is one of those conscientious people that really takes what she says seriously, and I have never seen her be rude or thoughtless to anyone. I have learned to trust her opinions, as a result of that and having talked for some time now.

As to Elvis, I am afraid that Sciolistsalmagundi does not take kindly to me giving away our trade secrets. I can only tell you that our communications with the "King" have a lot to do with the spatial orientation of the tin-foil hat and a specially formulated "Peanut Butter 'n Nanner Sandwich." I may have said too much already......
