Welcome, followers!  We have a computer shortage at home, and by the time one's free I usually am too tired to go online, so I do the vast majority of my blog reading between phone calls at work.  I would love to be able to greet you individually, but apparently you are "inappropriate".  The followers feature (on every blog I look at, including my own) shows this lovely message on the work computers:



Our filtering software has indicated that the site you are attempting to access contains information or material which may be inappropriate for use or viewing by State Farm agents or their staff.

This event has been entered into the access logs.

Isn't that nice?  Um, yeah...NO!  So pardon me if I don't greet you all individually, and I hope you'll understand why I won't be following your blogs using this feature.  Chances are good, though, that yours is probably already among the 878 (yes, eight hundred seventy-eight) blogs and counting that I try to keep up with in Google reader. 

And finally, just because it makes me smile, here is our feline trio in a rare moment of harmony (even though Hope's eyes make her look like she's possessed and Shia says the picture makes his butt look fat). ;)

Monkey, Shia, & Hope

Oh, I love your kitties. And they're all sharing the same seat, how sweet.

LOL that the stitchy blogs are inappropriate. My work haven't caught onto blocking blogs, although they did block Flickr late last year. Boo.
