Fridays will all be about blog love. Celebrate a blog or just a post, that you love. That can be one of yours or someone else’s. It can be a blog about love or just a blog you love. As long as you give it some credit and share it with us it will be fine! This is also a great possibility to use the WordPress reblog button.
And that says everything about today’s post. Go crazy with giving out blog love to all those who inspire you, entertain you, inform you, challenge you…..
Again this is so difficult but only because I do not want to leave anyone feeling I do not appreciate them. So today I am going to spotlight The Grumpiest but most lovable Curmudgeon on word press. I give you the one, the only Ned at gigoid .
This amazing chap has ranted and raved himself into my head. He talks so much sense and has taught me a lot. Ned Pearls and I love that , Ned discusses and that interests me and stretches my mind. I just never know what he is going to say next.
Ned has taken us on holiday with him and taken us around the places he visits…I think he has a love of Ireland obviously a man of taste .
This what gigoid has to say about himself and you can visit his about page here
Due to rigorous curmudgeon training requirements, he has discontinued his Facebook presence, but still indulges in the occasional Twitter session…The user-name, “gigoid”, is never capitalized, as it is only the symbolic representation of my avatar, my online presence, and thus, is not to be considered a “Proper”, or even “Given” name…. It is at least two degrees, if not more, removed from Reality, and feels no need to connect with it too strongly, lest it prevent the full application of imagination….Sadly, though he loves to read, and write, time for both chosen tasks is limited, by physical issues that preclude long sessions at the computer…. He works in spurts, then uses the powers of a Time Lord to post quickly, read a bit, answer comments, and find material about which to write, and/or, rant, which is a habit, and a task he has chosen as a Duty…. He can no longer pursue revolution (which only means, change, after all….) actively, so, he does so the best he can, with keyboard, and the indomitable will to do what es needed, in order to continue the fight for survival…. for all of us.
As is his usual habit, gigoid has hereby demonstrated a fair bit of pomposity, hasn’t he? He also has a problem speaking in the first person, as is patently clear by now… Basically, he doesn’t care….
Oh, by the way….. He has also written articles for Triond.com, a site for authors to submit work, which then shops that work out to other sites, with published posts at the following sites, at least….
and a host of others…. he’s forgotten most of them….
gigoid has his own personal philosophy…. naturally. After all, what’s good enough for Sartre, Kierkegaard, Socrates, and Plato is good enough for him/me….. This is it:
The wisdom of pearls….(The world is my oyster; which way to the pearls?)
1) I think I am; that’s close enough.
2) The nature of the Universe is Change.
Unpredictable, innovative transformation of Reality is the Norm.
If you have a problem with this, you’re in for a rough ride in Life.
3) Thou art God, you know. Let’s do lunch.
4) Excellence is its own reward.
5) Girls think differently. So do boys. Don’t fight it.
6) Axiom #2 X axiom #5 = And God so loved the world, He said, “Quit whining!”
7) Do your Duty. Respect Life. Honor the Truth. Share your Love.
8) Go back. Everything you need to know is in the first seven axioms.

In the interests of full disclosure, here is a recent picture of gigoid’s face, such as it is….
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark, and Theresa…
and everyone else, too…
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.
Sometimes I sits and thinks,
I just sits.
gigoid, the dubious
Okay, ffolkes, he’s done…. go read some of the stuff he’s written… some of it, if not all, is much better than this, so, you can’t lose in that respect…. Go on now….
