Belle is one of my cherished followers and commenters from Kelowna, B.C. - a place in the Canadian sun belt where most of my extended relatives live. She always leaves great comments on my posts. Her own blog (which I have to admit I only recently knew she had) is one of the kind I really like to read - funny family stories and fresh observations on daily life.
The other day I put out the word that I was close to 1000 visitors a day. Belle took it upon herself to put out the word to her followers that I had a blog that they might want to visit. The Cave of Cool appreciates any effort that gets the word out to the peoples of the blogosphere that we exist. I always believe that if you try us once, you will be back. We have a lot to offer here. I have picked up a few followers as a result of her positive review.
Go here to check out the tribute post Belle created. I think she got to the heart of what makes me very proud of my efforts. Also please check out Belle's stuff. She may be an octopus lover but she is no collaborator. I can always make room in my life for good people like her.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
