Read These Blogs

      Are you tired of doing work?  Do you have things to do but don't want to do them?  Are you at the point where you are about to hang out with your family because you can't find anything else to look at on the Internet?  Do you belong to a website dedicated to pictures of cats?  Well, don't despair!  Here are some sweet blogs that you can look at once you are done reading every word on Big Dave and Company.  Oh yeah, and they were staff picks from those of us here at Big Dave and Company.  And some of them were Blogs of Note, which Big Dave and Company is still not. I forgot to mention that.  Big Dave and Company.

One Red Paperclip.  I am sure that you've heard about this guy and his shenanigans.  He started with one red paperclip and ended up with a house.  Oh yeah.  He went ahead and traded the red paperclip for something, and that for something, and that for something, and so on and so forth until someone traded him a house for whatever he already had.  And of course he did a blog about it.  I mean, there obviously isn't much going on with this now but it's a cool story to read.

The Coach Blog.  A blog about the show "Coach" written by someone who wasn't a fan of the show and doesn't remember much about it.  This is the most brilliant idea in the history of ideas.

English Russia.   I have been enthralled with Russia since long before The Russian came into my life.  I always thought that it was about as far away from where I am that I could go, especially those vast expanses of emptiness that seemed to lay at the far end of the known world, even though they were just on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.  Turns out that most of the places I dreamed about pretty much just looked like where I live except on steroids.  But I still dream about it anyway.  So it was in that spirit (and in the course of looking for pictures on the Web) that I came across English Russia.  It has cool pictures and it's written in English by a Russian.  I like it because, as it says , something cool happens daily on 1/6 of the Earth surface.

Signs of the Times.  If you like Engrish.com or maybe the book I own called Signspotting you are going to like this blog.  This guy likes to take pictures of signs that are funny or strange or poorly worded.  Like every good blogger he misses the mark from time to time, but in general he finds some good stuff.  I like it, but then again, I like signs.  And funny things.  And when you put the two together, well I think that's a funny sign in my pants.
