So... what are we going to do here?

When I set up the blog, I thought I might use it for some low-rent yapping/ranting, hence the "It Does Not Compute". I never really got into that, and also since then I have had the distinct pleasure of reading weblogs authored by people who really know how to do it.

I figure I'll leave it to them for now. But that creates a bit of an existential crisis for the old, neglected weblog. What to do and why to do it?

Well, I do occasionally like to post a mini-rant in other places. I can reserve the right to do it here, but that's not going to create a critical mass of timely postings!

Here's something I do a lot elsewhere: I post pictures of stuff that I am about to eat. (This is a hot dog. Just One. Really)

However, I very seldom bother with any commentary. My social media buddies appreciate the photos and many have suggested I start a foodie blog. I don't know a lot about that sort of thing, but maybe I can use this blog to get me "sea legs"... I can post photos, talk a little about my experience of the day and the food, and see if the quality of my posts gets better with time.

Along with that, I guess, we might cook every once in a while and post something about that. We have lots of friends who cook better but I don't think the occasional pecan pie post will end civilization as we know it (at least not before December 22).

I am a car guy. You can see that from my earlier posts. I will probably throw car posts in from time to time.

(The above is a 1913 Stevens-Duryea "C-Six" originally purchased by George Vanderbilt and still owned by the Biltmore Estate.)

I travel/cruise sometimes. We can include that.

I might occasionally post a few links to stuff I've seen elsewhere that interest me. Maybe BS related, maybe food related, or maybe just a silly cartoon or music or video.

What I hope I actually DO is find enough things to talk about here. No promises. No promises that the content ever completely escapes the category of "random stuff, occasionally useless".

It's just a weblog and I'm just one of the proverbial monkeys at the keyboard.

Well, OK. That is all. For now.
