After a year of blogging, Bayview Herb Huseland has spruced up his site with a photo (above) and a site meter (with a little help from his friends Cis and Mari Meehan) here.
Newcomer: Put your hands together for new "Friends of Huckleberries" blogger Hindu, who writes the Sagebrush blog, from the Tri-Cities, Wash. He's a conservative in the farming business who has his cross-hairs on the western Washington. Good blog. Good guy. Click here.
*Mari Meehan/Dogwalk Musings is dissecting the remarks from the HBO Saturday question: "Where Do We Go From Here?" here.
*Family Phil tried to keep news that Don Knotts had died from his 7-year-old but an NBC newscaster spilled the beans here.
*Bearable Bob excoriates downhill skier Bode Miller for his embarrassing Olympic flameout in his post: "Bode Miller: When Egos Are Disqualified" here. (Caution: Not for timid readers.) BTW, you might want to swing by Bob's site to wish him well as he tries to recover from a bug he's not too fond of here.
*Holy Moly is thinking about Christmas and "Thin Places" in his latest post (which may or may not include his photo ... dunno) -- but not about our December dust-up involving the ACLU and Christmas here.
*With tears, Cis/From A Simple Mind sez goodbye to Harold's IGA, where everyone used to know your name, here.
*Dunno which of the Golly Gals posted the terrific post, "Boys In Toy Land," about the Route 53 Diner in Rathdrum, but it's blogging at its best -- photos, good commentary, interesting subject -- here.
Meanwhile, poetical Mittens/Calico Gals yearns for spring here, Toad tries and fails to outfox his son here, and Sagebrush Patriot recommends a pretty good Boise Chinese food place (don't look if you're hungry) here.
