I am neither a mad dog nor a man and only half English at that but sometimes I feel like I have tarried too long in the midday sun.  Beirut in the midday sun in July is hot, humid and divine – if you’re looking from a distance.
Close up the city is awash with sweat, noise, pollution,  bleating car horns, angry drivers and harried film-makers.  Harried, grumpy and bad-tempered.  I’ve been sitting in the traffic for two hours after having my stitches removed.  I have been at home for over three months with a herniated disk pressing on my the sciatic nerve of my right leg.  This is the second herniation I have had in less than a year – in the same disk.  Long story short, had the operation, bought the t-shirt, re-wrote the book (on how I must live the rest of my life) and decided to give blogging a go.  The herniated disk actually got me blogging to family and friends when I went off to a clinic in southern Germany for three weeks to lose weight and do some therapy on my back in the hope that I could avoid a second operation. You can read the Buchinger Klinik Diaries in a separate post.

So here I am creating my first blog with nary a clue about tags, posts, pages, categories, links stats, dashboards et al.  It’s not that I haven’t read blogs or love some bloggers but I have never stopped to think how it is all created and what an effort people put into their blogs.  It is not just the writing which is hard enough – to come up with topics everyday or week that people will like reading and following – but the behind scenes, the creation of the blog framework, if you will,  is a story in itself.  So I did what any producer worth his or her salt would do I called up the people who I thought would know how to do it and got them to explain it to me.  Oh yeah, that worked – not.  Yes I pride myself at being quite technically advance as I deal with new fangled technology everyday as a film-maker; cameras, peripherals, sound kits, editing equipment – you name it I’m up on it.  Ok, ok I know its name and what it can do but I don’t know its inner workings.  Setting up a blog got me a lot closer to the inner workings of idiot proof interfaces.  I really didn’t want to know what went on behind the scenes but it has become a challenge.

In that spirit, The Mad Dogs And Englishmen post will be an update on the behind the scenes creation of this blog and all other technical machinations I may encounter in the future.


  1. A man talked about what could be wrong along with her wife as he believed
    that he was complete like a man as he had strong erection but wonder why his wife did not conceive.
    I noted his findings inside early 1980s inside my head but
    never attempted to carefully watch my foods. The
    inadequate fiber content of inside Western diet results in constipation, putrefaction and increase of pathological organisms.


  2. With lots of games and other virtual console games invading the Internet you would not be
    facing too much research problems on where to Download
    Wii Games. Usually there was a bottle of soda or some sugary drink on one side, and a bag of junk food on the other.
    Most individuals now opt to find a more acceptable and inexpensive manner of obtaining everything they need.


  3. I still get the occasional migraine, but they are not as intense
    as they used to be. If you are trying naturally, yes, we also have great success.
    Treatments strike all of your symptoms into calculate and aim
    at equalization the force within the body to perfect wellbeing.


  4. We only have to understand the symbolic dream language as a way to have a direct communication
    while using wise unconscious mind. It is the very act of
    accelerating and changing, as society grows and changes around us that
    produces interpretation possible. While on the other hand this may appear incredibly obvious, if we contrast it using the enlightenment of Hegel, we see something very different.
