  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. 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˜‰

  3. 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.

  4. 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˜›

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
