I'm working on becomming irrelevant on this blog.

Seriously, Andy has a book about this little bull in Spain named Ferdinand. He's supposed to be a fighting bull, but all he wants to do is lay in the grass and smell flowers. I'm Ferdinand these days.

Does he end up fighting? I bet he does.

No fighting. I bet Ferdinand taught all of Spain to stop and enjoy the flowers. Rob, maybe you will inspire us all to become irrelevant!

From Fritz on Thu, Jan 22, 2015 at 23:10:36 from

I stand corrected. May Ferdinand and Rob inspire us all to smell the flowers.

Your quantcast score is 439 visitors. That's among the highest on FRB. Mine is so low it doesn't even register. You have a long way to go to even approach my level of irrelevance, my friend. Moving to SC would have helped you, though.

a good way to stay relevant is to have a presence on pinterest
