Huckleberries Online

Best of the Local Blogs — 2/22/06

Shutterbug Family Phil took his son and his camera to Spokane last night to provide a pictoral report on the Harlem Globetrotters visit here

*Put your hands together for a Stebbijo-recommended newby blogger who hails from Mountain Home: Justin Becker (aka The Sagebrush Patriot). He’s new to the game. But he provides great insights re: blogging in “What Is Blogging?” here and “Sam Adams Would Have Blogged” here. (Monster Hat Tip to Stebbijo for making the proper cyber introductions)

BTW, you’ll notice there’s another new link under “Friends of Huckleberries” — Kevin Erickson of Yakima (aka Holy Moly). Superb blog. Check the blogs by Justin and Kevin out.

*”Back when I used to run, I was still big and slow. My lightest running weight was 215. So me trying to run up a hill was like a “semi-truck” going up Snoqualmie pass. Lugging all the way! I had the heart of an Olympic athlete, but the body of a couch potato,” begins CDADave’s latest Thin Air post here.

*Mari Meehan/Dogwalk Musings opines that we can’t wall the world out any more as the Ming Dynasty did with its great wall (read: isolationism doesn’t work) here.

*Cis Gors/From A Simple Mind applauds “The King’s” approach to life (which doesn’t include watching anxiety-increasing news broadcasts) here.

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour watched a police pursuit in her old stomping grounds Friday night and realized that her pastoral life in Bonner County is going the way of the dodo here.

Meanwhile, Bre tells us about a trip to Seattle here, Sam proclaims his love of the Olympics here, and Bob free associates about Bush, mountain biking and blogging here.
