Who and What is the Happy Warrior

The Happy Warrior is the title of a poem... and yes, I love this poem. I do not wish to be mischaracterized, for the most part poetry is not my bag. I am not an afficionado of literature nor am I a metro-sexual (I despise that term) but a dear friend introduced me to this masterpiece of prose several years ago... it has provided no end of inspiration. The Happy Warrior by William Wordsworth outlines the qualities of a magnificent soul. I aspire to possess even one or two characteristics that "every man in arms should wish to be."

This blog is a representation, in conversational form, of my voyage to wrap my arms around the world in which Mr. Worsdworth's warrior finds happiness.

Looking back at 2010 (through Google's eyes)

I love history even if that history is the very recent past.  Almost every news outlet (including sports and other special interest focused entities) produce some sort of "year in review" montage that have an odd captivating power over me.  Check out this year in review video produced by Google:

Wacky Wednesday: Christmas traditions

Christmas time is filled with happy traditions like..... scaring the hell out of little children by putting them on the lap of some total stranger with physical features unlike anything they have ever seen. How this becomes the most anticipated and joyful time of the year for these little ones I am not sure.

And then of course we will emphasize the seriousness of NEVER associating with, speaking to or cuddeling up with strangers.
