Goodbye – or a change of address has been my website for a long time. I first registered the domain name on August 4, 1999. I guess you could say that it has spanned decades, centuries, even millennia.  Back in Web 1.0 days I was reluctant to have my last name in the domain name. We were much more protective of our personally identifiable information then. Heck, my Compuserve email was a random string of numbers at

That was then, this is now. I’ve decided to switch to This change will come soon. You may actually be reading this post at that name. is not going away entirely. Soon it will be the online home of a young gentleman who is a quite talented singer. I encourage you to check back after the switch. I’ve had a sneak preview and I think you will enjoy his music.

Here’s to new beginnings!

I’m all up-to-date. I think?

When I first started this blog it was a nail-biting experience whenever I needed to upgrade versions or perform back end maintenance. I’d make certain all files were backed up, databases correct and I had my Wheaties. This was vital, because otherwise my words of wisdom and witty observations would be LOST FOREVER!

Eventually I realized that if my blog fell in the forest of cyberspace it wouldn’t make a sound because nobody would be there.

I performed an upgrade to WordPress 3.3.2 today and totally messed it up. No cursing, sweating or stress followed. I figured it would give me a fresh start. I eventually corrected the issues. Let me know if I missed anything if you happen to notice something amiss.

Searches related to Matt Keough

Matt Keough is not an extremely common name, but it only takes one other guy sharing your name to make Google related search suggestions interesting.  Don’t pretend you have not performed a vanity search of your name! When I type my name in Google, the top results all relate to the poor fellow who used to play MLB baseball.

You might think it odd that I refer to a guy who was formerly a professional baseball player as “poor guy”, but I would not trade my life for his. No way, no how.  Although we might think it was good luck to marry a former Playboy bunny, they are now divorced.  “Matt Keough Divorce” is a suggested search.

I’ve banged up my body via lack of athleticism and not minding which step of the ladder I was on. But I’ve never been drilled in the head by a ball hit off the bat of a MLB player, so another suggested search, “Matt Keough brain injury“, doesn’t apply to me either.

This humble blog does show up for “Matt Keough 2011“, which makes sense. I am Matt Keough and I did write at least a few posts in 2011.

I’m really glad nobody really cares about my “Matt Keough Stats“!

I feel fortunate that “Matt Keough arrested” is talking about the other guy as well. Behavior modification in later adulthood also gets credit for avoiding my true identity ranking well in Google for that one.

In short, while it may seem from the outside that the people in the spotlight are in a position to be envied, that really is not the case.  I wish the more famous Matt Keough nothing but better days ahead. I also wish us both less dramatic suggested search topics from Google.

A post a day in December

I was on a roll in September, wasn’t I? I posted nearly every day and included offbeat and esoteric MP3s from my record collection. I even asked folks to come and check out the blog. Good times.

Well I ran out of steam. No lame excuses. No major life traumas. Just lost interest.

But December! Oh my word, December 2010 will see a post a day here at

As lame as this post is, it still counts.

The obligitory Updated WordPress post

As I warned last week – I updated the software that makes this blog thingy thing work. You may notice weird stuff happening. If so, please let me know. Chances are if you are reading this you have the 411 on how to reach me.  You can also drop a comment.


PS. I no longer rank for U2 Mullet in Google Image Search and I’m just a little sad about it.

Where does the time go?

I decided to log in and start bloggin’ again. I’ve been tweeting and active on Facebook. That has satisfied my hunger to sound off on whatever is crossing my mind.

But those outlets are not mine, all mine. So I’m going to attempt the discipline of blogging daily here. Of course that will likely ‘go south” as I try to upgrade to the latest version of WordPress.

By the way – The Browns won a game that means nothing today. But it is still better than losing a game that means absolutely nothing. I think.
