craigslist, a great website, gets some props

I found this site a few years ago, and it's great. This is where I found tickets to a baseball game at Fenway, where to see a band in Austin, and there's a ton of other stuff here. I can't begin to explain all that this site has, but for over 55 cities, this is the place to hang and get advice from your neighbors. If you live in one of the craigslist cities, you gotta check it out, and it's a great resource for anyone who's traveling, too.

The initial site was for the San Francisco Bay area, so takes you to the SF Bay site. Click on a city to the right to choose that region's info and postings.

I'm having a crisis; they're watering down my Jack!!

Jack Daniels is changing from 86 proof to 80 proof, and they claim that their customers prefer it. What!?!?! They sure didn't ask me. I'm way more than a little pissed.

Here's a link to an online petition asking them to change it back. For the sake of all that is good and healthy, please change it back!

Or go to Jack and and send them a nasty note. Man, this is really making my ass twitch.

Mount St. Helens about to blow again, and you can watch

Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam - Washington State, USA

This is an image of Mount St. Helens, taken from the Johnston Ridge Observatory. The Observatory and VolcanoCam are located at an elevation of approximately 4,500 feet, about five miles from the volcano. You are looking approximately south-southeast across the North Fork Toutle River Valley.

This image automatically updates approximately every five minutes.

We are in close contact with USGS and the University of Washington Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network. We will post updates as needed. There is no immediate cause for concern beyond the normal awareness that earthquakes and small steam explosions and/or small debris flows are always a possibility in the crater of the volcano. For the latest information, check our our Special Conditions Report for any current activity.

So many questions, so few answers.

So Darius and the boys still have money?

Hootie and the Blowfish have donated $80,000 to eight troubled South Carolina school districts. Now that's a good way to spend those residual checks from Lite Rock radio.
