Huckleberries Online

Best of the Local Blogs — 1/20/06

Chris/Digital Fog presents his version of an “Alabama Dishwasher” above (HBO prefers “North Idaho Redneck Dishwasher,” but who’s keeping score?) And he has a great link for troubleshooting office printers here.

Coming Monday: North Idaho prep sports writer extraordinaire Greg Lee begins blogging Monday. Stay tuned.

*Granati/Orange Frog got clobbered with a high garbage bill and found out why when he called to complain. Did you know that you’re charged $3.50 extra if the garbage man has to get out of his comfy truck to toss in assorted trash? You’d better read this. Click here.

*JBelle/Notes from The ‘Kan EWA continues to post wonderful comments about her time in Paris, including her thoughts on the work ethics of a socialist country here and the amusement she experiences when the Parisians discover she’s an “ah-mare-ee-CAIN” here.

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour explains why she’s looking forward to the Miss America Pageant and remembers her own attempt to establish one in Sandpoint in the 1970s here.

*Betsy Russell/Eye On Boise reports on her blog that Senate President Pro Tem Bob Geddes is getting calls from all over the world re: his idea to sleep state prisoners in shifts to preserve space here.

*Ken Paulman/Daily Briefing reports that the news huddle had quite a discussion about an S-bomb making it into print in our “7” edition in an article by Tom Bowers (under subhead “Who No. 2 works for”) here.

Put your hands together for Toni Britton of Sandpoint who’s adding an online photography blog to go with her Calico Girls. You can find her new Idaho Nature Trails here.

Also: Family Phil unveils a budding poet in his family here, CDADave posts a pre-thong photo of City Beach that’ll have you thinking about summer here, and Toad/Synaptic Disunion remembers the ‘80s here.

DFO: Warning — for North Idaho Blogrollers; I’m about to weed through group again to boot bloggers who have become inactive. You’ve been warned.
