I'm Rich! I'm Rich! No I'm Not.

Holy Moly.  A check arrived in the mail today from Google's AdSense program.  You see those ads down to your right and up there, just below the title?  I get paid when you click on 'em.  Pretty cool.  And here I thought blogging was just about my self-absorbed narcissism.

Now I'm tossing some beer in the snowbank and heading to the hot tub where I'll have a good view of my neighbors across the lake ringing in the New Year with fireworks and other implements of noisy, colorful destruction.  It's quite a scene: colors reflecting on the icy lake, boomers echoing off the surrounding hills, me raising a beer and cheering like a maniac.  Maybe the red foxes'll add their voices to the celebration.

Happy New Year!  Here's to an even more prosperous 2009.

You WILL be a happier and richer man in 2009!! Based on the number of times I'm clicking on the 'google''ll be a millionaire by days end! And I actually DO love the 8000+ sq. ft. house in CO for a possible vacation rental.
