Aaaaaaaand we're back.

Came dang close to shutting this thing down for good. And I may shut it down yet. Dunno. Guess it depends on my mood. But for now I'll push on a bit. The truth is that I've met a lot of really stellar people through this blog. Comments and emails led to fishing trips and eventually to friendships in many cases.  That alone is reason enough to plod along a little further, I think.

Some changes:

*Colors and layout. Obviously.  Got tired of the black and yellow. I'll probably keep tinkering with this.

*Comments are disabled.  Nothing personal. As much as I enjoy comments from the two or three people who read this, it's really just one more thing to keep up with. I may enable them again at some point, but until then I hope folks just read and maybe enjoy some of the drivel. That said, by all means feel free to shoot me an email at carpaficionado@gmail.com if something you find on here piques your interest or even if it makes you mad and you just want to cuss me a little.

*Content will likely include a lot of non-carp stuff.  I realized that a lot of the blogs I follow have all kinds of eclectic, random crap throughout and that's exactly what makes them fun to follow and read.

Not that anyone give's a rat's ass about any of the above, but I feel the odd need to explain myself.

Carry on.
