Well, here we are.
My musings are about to join the rest of the floatsam and jetsam of cyberspace. To get things off to a rousing start, I will start with a list of FAQs. Well, at least ones that I imagine people would ask anyway.

--Why am I starting a blog now?
First and foremost, I am starting this because my first baby is due on May 15th. I figure that this will be be the best way to keep people updated on baby Jack's activities. So it will act as a window into the lives of first time parents. Kate, my wife, and I are are essentially clueless on the finer points of raising a child--as I am sure most parents are with their first. Through the wonders of the internet, you can tune in to see how we handle the complexities of moulding a young mind.
Additionally, and on a more selfish level, I am going through a major career change. I have been in academia for eleven years or so and I decided I needed a break. So if you become a regular reader, you will get to hear about life as an Aflac agent.
Coupled with a new baby, I believe these major life changes are worthy of sharing with a broader audience.

--What does the title mean?
It's supposed to be kind of metaphorical and all that, so draw your own conclusions from what you read.

--Who the hell is Joe Weber?
I guess you will just have to read and find out. And no, I am not the Joe Weber that writes military/spy novels.

--And why would anyone in her right mind want to read what I have to say?
You tell me, you're the one reading it!

I think that is enough for the first posting. Kate and I are off to her family's for a baby shower this weekend. I'll be sure to give more info about Kate and myself in the next post.
