Cliff Notes

First you may wonder why I put the notation Cliff Note on some of my posts. My answer, no special reason, except to either point out something or change the subject.
Cliff Note:It has nothing to do with Cliff's Notes, which I never based a book report from. When I was in school, most of the time, I made them up. the statute of limitations have long run out.

Congrats to one of the newest friends: Daisy was one of the runners up for post of the day on David McMahon's authorblog. The post was from Dancing With Daisy called What is Going on in My Yard When I'm Not Looking. Also at Smiling With Daisy, she is doing some neat things with pictures of the two presidential candidates, Obama and McCain. Check it out.

Announcing Bella Builds a House: Yes it's true. Our very own green nurse, Bella is going to build a house, along with her husband, of course. But will it be a greenhouse? Will Clark Kent become Tim"the tool man" Taylor? Will crazy nurse come by and offer expertise? Stop by, and cheer her on and give moral support. She's an important part of the family.

And a great thank you to all who have given me encouragement in my writing of poetry, something I wasn't aware I was talented in. At the risk of being a little braggadocios, go over to my Whattville blog if you haven't been there.

There are some new friends I hope to introduce in the next few days. I hope you go to their places and admire their work. Check out others if you haven't in awhile. Give a word of encouragement while you're there.

ghost dansing: You are correct in the radio station reference. They also had a broadcasting school in the same building as their studios. I attended the WIXY School of Broadcast Technique in 1974, hence the name 74WIXYgrad.

I also had a cousin attending Kent State in 1970. He was no where near the action during the riot.

Ghost Dansing said...

wow.... can you be a disc jockey like that guy in the video.... he was really good and exciting?

I don't know about me being good and exciting, but I've never been a disc jockey. Here is an example of my announcing work:

Thank you! In less than two months, I will be back at my perch as the "voice of the Rittman Indians Marching Band."

I get excited about it because I have a good product to get excited about.

Thanks so much for the mention, Wixy! I'm behind on my blog reading and just discovered this today! Hope you get a lot of visitors to your new poetry blog too! :)
