The Say - Latest Editorial

I wrote "The Say" editorial in the latest edition of the Chautauqua Region Word.

The hot topic this time was the new Jamestown Neighborhood Revitalization Plan. It's a topic/story that I hope to see more of in the news over the coming months and years because if the recommendations are able to be enacted it could create some very positive changes in the Jamestown housing market.

Dreaming of the Millennium Falcon.. again

Last night I had another Star Wars themed dream. I blame this one solely on the fabulous fact that I had just bought the tickets for Matt and I to go see Star Wars: In Concert in Hamilton, Ontario in July.

In this one, I was on the Death Star hanging out near the Millennium Falcon waiting for Luke to get his ass back to the ship so we could take off before it was time blow up the place. I ran across a group of emo/rave kids who were totally unconcerned about their impending doom as I encouraged them to take refuge in the Falcon. I sighed as they stood agape, watching various star ships start whizzing above the Death Star is pre-battle formations.

"They don't get that this place is gonna blow up pretty soon," I grumbled. "And where the hell is Luke? Can it really take that long to kill off the Emperor and then drag his dad's dead body back here? I mean, c'mon.. really."

And end dream. No. I didn't make any of that up. Still comes in a distant second to the dream of the chill party on the Millennium Falcon with R2D2 and Han Solo.

Sunday Reading on the Porch

No better way to end the weekend than with a hot cuppa tea and a good book on the couch on the front porch. I am surrounded by windows that are full of leafy green trees. My dogs don't seem to mind the change from sitting inside. I consider myself lucky to have a working light and a blanket as the sun goes down.

This Week In Metal

Starting next week, a weekly bit called "This Week in Metal" will begin airing on WRFA-LP.

The segment is the brain child of Occasional Truth blogger, Len. He asked me to voice part of it, which I was happy to oblige. Here's hoping I don't massacre the pronunciations of too many metal-related names!

Tune to 107.9 FM in Jamestown or listen online.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
