The Pop Blog………………………

Free Stock photo: Closeup of a pencil writing on paper.

It is important to me to keep the Pop Blog alive and growing in Steven’s memory.

I am trying to recruit some new posters, moderates, liberals and those in between. I certainly won’t invite anyone to join us that would represent a serious affront to anyone here.

I am also planning to provide a thread per day, Monday through Friday, that is of a vague interest to the motley crew that hangs around this joint.

I won’t be adding anything on the weekends, unless something hit’s the news that gets my blood boiling and I can’t keep my mouth shut.

Speaking only for myself, I would like some of you to consider adding a thread now and again, as did Indy and Too Smart. I would also like you to consider asking some of your semi-like minded friends to join this party as well.

At Steven’s graveside, it was mention that this blog and his friends meant the world to him. In his honor, we should strive to keep it alive.

Guilty Pleasures………….

Well, for the most part, we all try to act all grown up and sophisticated, trying not to expose our inner-child to an inquisitive and critical world. Deep beyond prying eyes, however, we all have our guilty pleasures.

As I have grown older, I am less inclined to hide my guilty pleasures, but sometimes (!) I am less than forthcoming about the extent of my secret habits.

For some, guilty pleasures amount to all things chocolate or bacon, and some even combine the two with chocolate covered bacon.  For others, a guilty pleasures amount to a secret love of mushy old love songs or movies that bring a tear to the eye.

Others, mostly men, try to deny their politically incorrect and environmentally insensitive love of hot rods and muscle cars.  For others, it may be action movies where the good guy kicks the ass of the bad guy in the end, pun intended.

Now, I have to say, this thread probably doesn’t apply  to any Pop Bloggers whatsoever, since most are totally innocent of any deceitfulness in that regard.

(Raise your hands!)

Anyway, tell us about someone you know (wink, wink!) that has a guilty pleasure that they indulge in, behind closed doors.

Feel free to begin your post with “I know a guy that……………………”

We will all understand.
