I finally had a bit of time to make this page dynamic. It's now pulling from a simple table in MySQL. I copied all of the static posts into the database last night, after seeing Bob in concert last night. I had some time to kill after the concert becuase I was making the last minute Matzoh Ball soup for Passover tonight. And speaking of the concert, Dylan and his band put forth a riveting version of "Cold Irons Bound" and "All Along the Watch Tower".
I still have to implement the auto-pings and permalinks.
