    In the thread on Mike Seb's domain name:

    :smile:

    I replied that I had just started my blog. Well, hold the phone (or modem as it were)! I did, indeed, start a blog yesterday. Today, when I Googled the blog name, I came up with a bunch of hits to some guy already using what I had written as the title of my blog as his screen name, and he's on MyBook, FaceSpace, Twinkle, YooHooToob, etc. AND, he's into all sorts of strange things.

    So, if I were to publicize my blog, and someone tried to Google it: :surprised:

    Geez. Now I gotta come up with something else, and then search the heck out of it before posting. The blog is gone.

    I've had a similar problem with getting a url. 99% of everything I try is taken. DavidBrown.com? Hahahahahahaha ...

    I'm having a hard enough time thinking of a screen name. I'd never come up with a symbol. :rolleyes:

    David, I was once amused to find that my name is so common that you can you can plot geographical histograms...

    Try your name, it looks like you've got me beat by a long shot, especially in Texas....
