Walking down Yanceyville Street

I walked to War Memorial Stadium earlier this evening to grab a beer.  Tonight was the Bats last Friday night fireworks display and, by extention, the last one for my neighborhood as well.

It’s your conference – speak up.

Cone and I met at the Weatherspoon Museum yesterday to finalize and visualize what will occur in the museum’s auditorium on Saturday.  What started off as a lark a few short weeks ago has blossomed into a sum far exceeding it’s many parts. We initially and internally decided that Saturday’s Piedmont Blogger Conference would be [...]

Changes in the ‘hood

Two long held traditions end this week in the Aycock Neighborhood – one we saw coming, the other… not. World War Memorial Stadium will host its last professional baseball games this week.  More on this later, but part of the traditions the old stadium held for me, mine and others is a simple badge of [...]

Err’budy in da club get blog-gy…

News & Record editor-in-chief John Robinson has joined the fun.  Sez Robinson, “OK. I’m climbing on this rocket ship.

What the Department of Transportation [...]

Commenters as bloggers

With blogs, folks who leave comments to posts are de-facto bloggers, too.  Sometimes, however, important and well thought-out comments to posts don’t get the attention they deserve because they are not here on the “front page”. Such is the case with a comment entered yesterday to a post I made on the dearth of leadership [...]

After I got slammed last week for some comments I made both here and on the ABC of Guilford County discussion forum, Michael Murphree, the group’s Director, sent me an email for the record.  It states, in part… “I have followed your site and the dialogue on the Yahoo forum for the last few days with [...]

So, that explains it all…

Mr. Sun made me spew coffee on my computer screen AGAIN just now.  I need to keep a roll of paper towels on my desk. He explains the reason why he won’t be supporting W for president and why his penis is just out and out too big, “I’m talking huge“.

From the Biz Journal

I ran into Business Journal publisher Doug Copeland during yesterday’s Men Can Cook fundraiser.  He was giving out free copies of his publication.  I get their online updates but rarely am able to read all of their print edition – I need to change that habit. ****************** An opinion piece written by frequent contributor Ian Joyce [...]
