Just Passing By

Lotsa big name deaths lately- David Carradine, Farrah, Jacko, Karl Malden, Mollie Sugden, Oscar Mayer, Robert McNamara, Rita Keane, Billy Mays, Fred Travalena, Gale Storm... yet Shane MacGowan lives on. Remarkable.

Rediscovered a favorite band, somewhat defunct but always wonderful:

There is a sun! After weeks of rain, it sunned on our July 4th- and since then, has tried to sun every day. Some big boomers the last couple of nights. I miss having a porch when it thunderstorms.

I've had too many personal issues to keep up lately on our local politics, but my friend Lise posted a great report on our latest Selectboard Shenanigans:

And my friend Christian has a daring post at OpEd News (Go Christian!):

By the end of the week I should have some time to do real writing. When I do, I'll be writing on

And here's a thought-provoking youtube post from a good guy:

I'd be remiss if I didn't give my local radio station a plug- they're streaming:

Hey... thanks for the plug. For me and Blue News Tribune! Jim needs more readers. I'll be sure to send more readers your way too!
