Cone gets more hits and I’m jealous

Blogebrity is pretty cool.  Recently Slashdotted, they compile a list of A, B or C level webloggers on a national basis. But I discovered them nefariously. Because Cone and I utilize the same lame blog software (RadioUserland) I am able to see where the Blogfather and other top 100 Radio blogger’s readers come from and how [...]

Graduation day – snippets

Today was exhilarating and heartbreaking and left me with a much deeper appreciation of single parents.  Jesse and Josie both graduated from their respective schools today.  Jesse is leaving Jones Spanish Immersion to become a middle schooler at Aycock next year.  Josie finished her three years at Aycock and is moving on to Grimsley High [...]

Delayed posting

It took a while, but thanks to online editor Mike Fuchs the latest installment of Jinni’s Journal is now up at the N&R.  Included is the accompanying picture that shows Jinni’s latest coiffure and neighbor Louisa. The whole series of articles can be found here.

Notes from the road

I’m in Raleigh and have been since yesterday morning. I’m here to pass on some of my knowledge of how to restore old double hung windows to three employees of a local developer of historic properties.  I think it is important to train as many people as possible on such vanishing trades.  I also think it is [...]

Yes!

According to our bloggin’ deed recorder guy, CNN’s Judy Woodruff thought Jeff Thigpen’s post about Jack Bauer (doesn’t everybody watch 24?) helping disarm the Senate’s nuclear program was kinda cute.  She’s right.

Yes!

Today’s Yes!Weekly cover story captures the essence and vitality of what is going within the Greensboro blogoshere.  Brian Clarey has a writing style that I simply admire. Fine… damn fine.

Low blow

A few days ago I received some threats of retaliation for things I wrote in this space.  Perhaps coincidentally, perhaps not, my home wireless network was hacked into over the weekend. The hacker was able to block me from accessing certain websites, most notably the N&R.  By all accounts, it takes a motivated and savvy, [...]

I heard it come down…

Update: Chewie has great coverage of this sad event that, even more sadly, our mayor chose to pimp.  My favorite of her links is this 360 degree view of what is now gone (courtesy to Tom Lassiter). *************** 10:00a – A rumbling just broke the morning silence here on Cypress Street.  I’m sure it was the implosion [...]

Who ARE these people?

I am dissappointed that the Hoggard family wasn’t in the N&R’s sports section today.  That would have made this morning’s paper an “all Hoggard, all the time” issue.  I guess Jesse’s AAU Baseball team’s losses to three different teams this weekend wasn’t deemed newsworthy. On the top of the front page was a tickler pointing folks to [...]

Mr. Wharton’s Neighborhood

I can’t let the day pass by without congratulating my friend and neighbor David Wharton on his wonderful feature in this morning’s N&R.  David’s vision for the perfect neighborhood is one which he has worked tirelessly to create right here in Greensboro within the boundaries of the Aycock Historic District and beyond.  In the future, all of [...]
