Status Report 2456658

Oh, this is Rich Stuff!  Check it out: "Status Report 2456658" is the title of this post.  Guess what?  Tomorrow, there's might be Status Report 2456659!

What is the number and why are we doing this?  Good questions.  The number is the Julian Day for January 1st, 2014.  It is a truly unique number assigned to this day and NO other day in human history has such a number.  There will be only ONE Julian Day 2456658!  (Click here to read all about Julian Days.)

So why Julian Days?  Simple--We need to be able to search for content on this blog.  As the blog ages, it's going to get more and more difficult to search for a specific day.  Trust me, a Julian Day number is as specific as you can possibly get.  So, when we type in any given 7 digit Julian Day number, we're going right to the Status Report for that particular day.

Our Daily Status Reports are going to be a general overview of each day for which we choose to write such a report.  No, we aren't going to do them every day.  YIKES, that would be so extraordinarily Type A it would freak us out!  However, on whatever day we decide to write a Status Report, we will look up the Julian Day number and assign it to that report.  It's essentially a File Titling paradigm.

Here is the best Julian day converted to be found online:

So, what is a Status Report going to include?

A Status Report (SR) is going to be the modern guy equivalent of a clasped"Dear Diary" entry from yesteryear.  That's just another way of saying it will be whatever BS we feel like slinging forth on any given day.  Luckily, thanks to Julian Days, we're finally going to have a way to "Get Back."

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it couldn't last.
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass.
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jojo, go home
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jo.

But, we digress.

Whatever we want to say about today goes down below here in the big white space.....

And so it goes....with Status Report 2456658....
