Totinos Pizza and Chili

I’m a grown adult, rapidly approaching 40 years old. I’ve got children, a mortgage, probably a bunch of other stuff that might suggest a mature individual with grown-up tastes. Well, I think most people who know me might laugh at the “grown-up tastes” portion of that statement. I can find no more definitive evidence of that than my life-long love

Website Milestone

This is surely not a huge deal for many websites, but from my perspective, this site hit a rather large milestone today. Good ol’ jonamdall.com just had its 10,000th hit! For a small-time hobbyist like me, that seems really huge and quite unlikely to have ever happened. So, as a visitor, I have to thank you – yes you, reader!

As a huge Excel fanatic, over the years I’ve amassed a nice collection of spreadsheets; if you’ve explored this website much, I’m sure you’ve seen graphs from some of them.

Quiz Results

After significant trial and error, I finally nailed displaying survey results on this blog!  It’s fairly easy, now that I’ve figured it out.  Just publish a page in your Google Spreadsheet (you can create a graph tab rather than publishing the entire thing).  After that, copy the embedded link and paste into the blog.  It’s that simple!

Quiz time!

I just figured out another fun thing I can do (potentially), so let’s see if it works. I created a very important quiz, housed in a Google Documents form. In theory, I can actually include this quiz in this blog, and the answers will still be stored properly! Well, let’s see if this works. Edit:  It worked! Very cool. Now,

Go Mavs!

I just wanted to type out an official congratulations to the Dallas Mavericks.  They rocked the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals last night, and I couldn’t be happier about it! This post-season for the Mavs seemed almost scripted like a movie, it was so full of amazing and almost poetic events.  First, some major adversity against the Trailblazers, with
