  1. I’ve always wondered about this whole looking at spiders spinning their web business. What was the deal with that? Sure a cobweb on a dewey sunday morning is something to behold. But actually looking at the little bugger spinning away 12 to a dozen, I just find the concept fairly redious.

    But I guess if you couldn’t blog about it then, you’d have time to appreciate how such a small insect can produce so much web, without having to spin your own story about it at the same time. Hmmm.. perhaps the world does look different then.

  2. Old AND talented? πŸ˜‰

    Fantastic post Grandad.

    Why not tag Michele, he has about 200 tags. Would serve him right. πŸ™‚

  3. Dalif – Welcome to the Rambles! Do you mean you have never watched a spider spin a web? Fascinating stuff. Not only was it inspiration for Robert the Bruce, but it’s also a sneaky way of getting the words ‘web design’ into a post about something else πŸ˜‰

    Dave – I would love to tag him, but he considers himself to be above these things. Sure he wouldn’t have the ingenuity to do it anyway! πŸ˜‰

  4. God be with the days when tag was something you played in the schoolyard.

    Robert the Bruce had a very unpleasant brother, Edward, who went around burning things down – houses, castles, towns, size no object. His achievements included burning down Bright Church in Co Down, with the congregation inside it.

  5. Well buddy, you’re not the only one with a lot of tags. Over a hundred of ’em not counting that vague lot of categories as well. This is just might have to go in chapters.

    And my name is Kirk! πŸ˜›

  6. Thanks for the name change Grandad, I feel like myself again.

    You have another vote in for that Golden Spider award.

  7. Spam there’s good eatin there…ranks right up there with fried bread…..and chili dogs….

  8. Kirk – My apologies for that! I chose you because you had so many categories. I’m a soft old b*st*rd at heart. And thanks for the vote.

    Robert – You forgot dripping toast. How can anyone leave out dripping toast?

  9. Thanks Grandad.. you’ve actually welcomed me once before, I believe.. but it’s always nice to feel re-welcomed.

    I’ll have to wiki Robert the Bruce.. I only vaguely remeber “the bruce” name from Braveheart. That’s right, my knowledge of the entire world derives from pop culture movies, yay me.

    Anywho… I’ve only chanced upon a spider spinning a web, but merely in passing. Never took the time to stare at it. Mostly because I get nervous when people look me over my shoulder. I’m sure Spidey feels the same way.

  10. Haven’t forgotten the tag meme Grandad. I have to head down to my local Veterans Administration medical facility today so they can have their way with me and that’s going to take all day.

    Besides, with a total of 140 tags and categories combined this is going to turn into quite a project.

  11. F*cking memes….

    Took the words right out of my mouth there. πŸ˜›

    And you call that many categories/tags?!

  12. Hi Cat and welcome!

    You are rightly had πŸ™‚

    I keep my categories and tags to a minimum, and now I know why. You can blame my daughter for all this anyway!

    So…. Get writing…..
