Open thread: Update with July 4th Invitation

Readership at BlueNC is chugging along. Here's the latest report from Google stats on who's stopping by and for how long. There were a little more than 3300 unique visitors last week, and that was before the Fayetteville Observer reported on our recent dust-up, and the News and Observer covered my apology to Jerry Meek.

I'm not convinced all publicity is good publicity, but these stories do tend to bring in new community members. If you're one of our recent arrivals, welcome. Please make yourself at home . . . and be sure to duck when you see a pie flying your way.

Everyone is invited to our July 4th Party in Chapel Hill . . . starting at 4! Bar-b-cue provided, along with lemonade and iced tea. Bring side dishes and BYOB. Come prepared to swim too!

I've been fighting with technology all day.

Thanks to all for keeping things running.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Running?

Well, maybe. There's definitely a tremor in the Force today. But we'll come out of it eventually.

In the meantime, the Dark Side is emboldened by the Libby injustice and the growing power of the imperial presidency. Where's the Death Star when you need it.

The Fayetteville Observer

Got the name backwards, twice. If you type it in that way, you get a telecommunications site with way too many flashing lights. If they're going to give us publicity, they should try to get it right.

best of both worlds.

They get to trash us, while at the same time not pushing people who are interested to the right site.

S'Okay -

If it keeps the wingnuts out - who cares.

Smart folks find this place w/o looking. ;)

(too many pie fights make ya fat anyway)

((yes, I will find the bright side no matter what))

Hope the newsletter is out

and you are gearing up for a great 4th celebration. Have missed you.

Saw all the flashing lights and thought maybe Lance had been busy. :)

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

War of the Words?

You know what?

Actions speak louder than words. Your record speaks for itself.

330 votes is a close vote. Anyone who has ever said, 'My vote won't count ...' should hear Larry's story.

Yes, your vote can count - and in a very important way.

Have time for a critique for a friend?

Her first political piece

Robin Hayes said,

We're here because we're always here.

Um, no. You're here because you flew in on your private jet. Larry is the one who is always in District 8, and he's the one that's going to win, in 2008.

Great idea

Its been a while

Since I was at one of the infamous shindigs.

Wish I was there.

Here in NYC, the fireworks managed to meander into my dreams, disguising themselves as gunshots gunning for my guys, gunning for my family, gunning for my guise, gunning for my country, gunning for me.......

Is there not something wrong with such a vulgar display of displaced ineptitude???? Oh, shit, I'm sorry I meant to say "patriotism"......my bad.

As always,

I'm so sorry...well maybe I'm not sorry...but shouldn't someone be?

The people who should be sorry

seldom ever are......

Everyone here is really sad

about the guy who got shot. That's a tough way to wrap up a tough job.

Jane and Lily send love.

July 16 is moving day

I just hope Time Warner Cable gets out there to hook us up ASAP....the horrors of web withdrawal.

They won't hook it up if we don't own the house

House is fully pre-wired, but it's new construction. I'm going to see if they can't meet us late that day. I didn't want to schedule too much in advance. Everything looks good on the sale of our current home, but I didn't want to jinx it...and yes, I fully believe in power of the jinx. ;)

dammit

I thought you were buying 'pre-owned'.

Call 'em - it's worth the extra effort. I mean, who can go long without the tubes and still say they're connected?

Good luck with it all. I stopped counting after 23 moves or so. Now I just know it's more. :)

I've had no computer for the week

Really sorry I didn't see the July 4th invite.
