Dates . . . and time

Here on Saipan, it is now 11:30 a.m. New Year's Day, January 1, 2009. I posted "A whole year ... !" a little over two hours ago. So it wasn't really posted on New Year's Eve even though it looks that way.

Thanks to time zones on the fact that the Google server that hosts this blog apparently is located on the West Coast of the U.S. -- PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), I guess a blogger really can have his cake and eat it too. End the year and open it too with a single post ....

Have a great year everybody!

A whole year . . . !

Gosh, my last post in this blog was nine months ago, and the one before it all the back to last January! I need to do something about that.

Happy New Year everybody! Welcome to 2009.

In December, it seemed as if New Year's Day 2008 had been just a couple of months back. To me, 2008 seemed like the shortest year on record -- but nothing to cheer about.

So 2008 wasn't a very good year. Now that we have said goodbye to 2008, we can look forward to a great year in 2009. Let's make it so!

Rocking for Obama

Okay, these guys aren't Jake Shimabukuro or Jimi Hendrix, but they're pretty good. This is fun, and I like it -- probably you will too.

It's the Great CNMI De-Lurk, Jan. 14-18, 2008. I didn't make a banner, but I cribbed one from Majic. Here it is ...

Here's a smaller copy.

Fotten Gaga

Okay, Angelo, I'll do it. I'll post one of your pictures of the Fotten Gaga models and link it to everything in your blog with a fotten gaga label. Here goes . . .

There you go, I'm driving traffic to your blog. Maybe I'll get some blowback . . . positive blowback for my blogs.

And, people, in case you don't know, Angelo is "the Saipan Blogger." At least he says so. Says he has been so "ever since." He's on MySpace too.

Now then, there's the Saipan Blog, not to be confused with Angelo. That's Ed Stephen's compilation of columns for the Saipan Tribune. See, Ed beat Angelo to the domain name That's okay, tho', somebody (okay, Walt Goodridge of Side Orders and PassionProfit and Saipanpreneur and others) got domain for Angelo. These guys are the We Love Saipan Network.

Well, Angelo says Ed Stephen's blog is "Four Ex-pats bitch about Life in Paradise", but actually Ed is a pretty good writer -- sometimes informative, sometimes funny, sometimes off the wall, sometimes something else. Talking about Ed makes me think of somebody else that's been writing about Saipan for longer than most and was one of the first to make her columns available on the Net: Ruth Tighe with "On My Mind . . ."
