about my pointless

This blog was started a few years ago simply to amuse my oldest son and his office co-workers. My goal was to give them a minute of something funny/interesting to look at each day.

I have been a collector of weird news stories for years. It is a "hobby" I started while searching for sermon illustrations! Obscure things just fascinate me. So, I started posting some of my findings here.

Over the past couple of years, the blog has developed a little beyond that... but at the core, the purpose remains the same: to give a few moments of amusement to my readers each day. That's all. There is no other agenda-- no cause to promote... no attempt to make money... it is pointless.

I hope you enjoy it.

If you'd like, send me a note with your comments or items you think I'd like to post. Mail me at friendinme@mypointless.com (by the way... my tag "friendinME" is short for "friend in Maine." ME is the two letter abbreviation for the state of Maine (US), where I lived when I started the blog... but these days, I live in NH, but friendinNH doesn't make much sense...........)

For more information about me, it is available on the sidebar. :)
