Resolution #3 - Learn How to Juggle

Everyone needs a skill they can fall back on in these tough economic times. That's why this year I've resolved to learn how to juggle, which is different than multitasking which I've been doing way too long.

You can learn along with me.

New Poll

No more fighting. 2008 will be a peaceful year.

I want to know what you think. Vote now.

We're No. 2!

Again. Ouch.

For the second straight year my Buckeyes come up short in the BCS Championship Game. I can put a positive spin on it when I consider that they've only lost three games in the past two years and two of those losses were to the national championship teams.

Ah, now I feel better.

My suggestion for the folks at the BCS: Make the title game sudden death. First team to score wins.

Okay, I'm convinced. Alton Brown 58, Ron Paul 1.

So ends the Food Fight. Alton uber alles.

Alton Brown vs Ron Paul

Okay, curiousity got the better of me. Everybody's been crowing about the Internet organization behind the campaign of Libertarian presidential candidate Ron Paul. I say it's nothing compared to Alton's Army.

New poll is up: Who'd win a fight between Alton Brown and Ron Paul?

DING! There's the bell...

Food Fight, Results of Championship Bout

And the winner is...

Come on, you know who it is. There was never any doubt in this Food Network Food Fight once the highly orchestrated following of Alton Brown found their way to the Sullicom blog.

By well over 100 votes, Alton diced, minced and pureed tiny Giada De Laurentis into the ground. The final tally - 136-8.

To celebrate the victory, here is a link to one of Alton's recipes that goes right to the heart (in more ways than one) of my Southern upbringing - his prep for Country Ham.

Before signing off today, I want to wish everyone the happiest and most prosperous of new years. I've thoroughly enjoyed this blogging experience the past few months and appreciate the precious time you've spared from your busy days to drop by and read what I've written. I'm undecided at the moment if this blog will continue in its current format. While it's been fun, it takes a great deal of commitment to churn out content that makes it worth your while to read. It has also been dangerously tempting to write about comfort foods and I confess that I've resorted to eating lots of them in the name of research. The result has been a gain of about 20 lbs., which I don't even need my doctor to point out is not wise for a middle-aged man with a family history of cardiac trouble.

So, while I join millions of others who have resolved to lose weight in this new year, I'll try to figure out what to do about the blog. In the meantime, I'll continue to drop in on your blogs to enjoy what you've written. And when it does become clear what Sullicom wants to be when it grows up, I'll let you know and I hope you'll take a look.

Happy New Year!
