This is just a little "filler" post that has no theme to it.

I have just recently suggested to a few people that they catch up on what's happening in my life by reading my blog, this prompted me to wonder what they would find here of late should they care to heed my advice.

Well if anyone has gone for a browse through my September posts they have certainly found a side to holtieshouse that is'nt the norm, in no special order, we have two posts on the tragic loss of Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter, also the loss, during the same week, of Australian motor racing legend Peter Brock.

There was the usual "humourous" posts, that I hope at least some
people find funny, a couple of "history lesson" posts on Lake Argyle, and the two posts on 9/11 that actually prompted this one.

I re-read those posts and some of the comments and found myself overcome with emotion yet again, after a bucket of tears as I read the wonderful tributes back then on 9/11 and the next few days.

I really wasn't ready for, or expecting, a new outpouring from a re-visit to these posts and I make mention of it now only to say, it doesn't matter how tough you might think you are, when something makes an impression deeply on your mind,
things are gonna get damp.

I believe that your comment to me when I posted this LogOff Warning was, "you mean this isn't a life?" Or something to that effect. *LOL*

You'll be surprised at how many people will try to click on the little x, in this warning, thinking that it's just a popup message.

Seriously...9-11 brings tears to my eyes no matter how many times I hear about it or read comments about it. It's just one of those very sad things.

I didn't click on the x, but I did laugh!

Peter, my eyes spill over too often when reading blogs.

Hi Peter ~ Not real bad for a fill-in post. Tears are too often too close, and the older I get, the closer they get. Can do without any more tragedies for a while. Cheers,

Heya Peter, real long time no see *S*

If you remember, I had a blog you used to visit occasionally at http://dchamp.blogspot.com which I ended a while back.

I'm sorry to say I had forgotten to bookmark your blog, but finally found it again.
If you get a moment, please email me at dchamp@hotmail.com

Know whatcha mean. Its October now, and I'm still making my way slowly through the 2,996 tributes. I have to take it in slow, steady doses or I'll fall apart again.

Congratulations Peter! I guess you are keeping on. My year will be December 1. I may say "been there, done that" and 'get a life.'

Question: Where do you find the tempalate to make those advisory popups? I've seen them on others but can't figure out how to make them. Thanks.

You're doing just fine Peter. I think I got a good idea of who you are by reading this fine blog. Keep up the good work.

Great post, Peter. I just read another blog, and had tears welling in my eyes. Sometimes our emotions get the better of us.
Hope you have a great week.
Take care, Meow
