The bad and good about blogging

This (via Drudge by way of TSG), it turns out, may prove to be the epitome of irresponsible reporting. (via Digby by way of Change for America). Let’s be careful out there. For some twisted reason, Drudge found it proper to dissiminate contact info for the school and principal involved – I can’t imagine the [...]

Damn software

I have had some folks report they are getting an error message when they try to comment on my posts.  I don’t know why.  If you are having this problem, feel free to email your comments and I will put them up until I figure it out.  Send me an email.

Thankful… for now

The editorial department at the N&R lists many things that Greensboro has to be thankful for today. The list is extensive. The Nussbaum Center’s success, Dell’s impending residency, Willow Oaks, the resurgence of downtown’s nightlife and daylife and local bloggers are among the good things that are going on around here. …Bloggers, you say? While [...]

Firing up the Kingsford before dawn

Check out the time stamp below, then subtract 1 1/2 hours – you should come up with about 5:30a. Smoking an 18lb turkey (actually 2) requires a lot of time and some rolling papers that you just can’t find at the local ‘head shop’. (Kidding on the rolling papers, but not the time.) I do [...]

I’m headed to Binker’s place

It’s a wonder that neighborhoodling David Wharton and family ever found their way to Aycock all those years ago.  Here’s his story of racial profiling on the part of a real estate agent – and some great pictures of where we live and of where you wish you lived, too.

I’m headed to Binker’s place

To put it mildly, Mark Binker’s family has some Thanksgiving traditions, or as he calls them – Ground Rules.

Someone’s been busy

Update 7:50p: OK Roch Smith, Jr., I get the point, you weren’t ready for public consumption (Greensboro101 slid behind a password barrier after I made my original post below). I’m sure it will be a knockout once completed…. now slide me one of those passwords so I can see what all you are up to. [...]

You just gotta love this place

Last night we had a classic Aycock Neighborhood get-together.  Although any reason for a party would have sufficed, this one’s excuse was across-the-street Bob’s birthday – which was actually the day before… see what I mean. Louisa (of Louisa’s Paintings fame and Bob’s wife) put it in motion by printing up an announcement then started [...]
