HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — 1/16/07

OrangeTV/Making Flippy Floppy is circulating the poster above via his blog to promote a fund-raiser next Sunday to raise money for Kim Hagen, a well-liked member of the local music and arts community here.

*Raymond Pert/Kellogg Bloggin' is trying to remember if there's ever been another place like the Sunshine Inn, which "was, in part, a motel, but I was more familiar with the other part of the business that was divided between a family/truck stop/too-drunk-to-drive restaurant that was open twenty four hours and a bar/lounge/dance floor" here.

*Bayview Herb/Bayviews has been on a roll with his series recalling his days as a Coeur d'Alene cabbie. You can read some of the latest of his series here and here.

*Family Phil/A Family Runs Through It shows parents a new way of dealing with their kids' messy rooms -- pack 'em up and move 'em out here.

*An episode as a 17-year-old northerner visiting her grandfather in Florida ingrained in Cis Gors/From A Simple Mind the need for civil rights here.

*DanG/Wambooli Lunch isn't impressed by "things" -- items to wear, drive, etc., but that doesn't apply to his new omelette pan here.

*Frum Helen Back and her hubby haven't discussed politics much since Dave accused the Demos of being responsible for the Watergate break-in (to frame Nixon). But that doesn't mean there isn't an occasional outbreak of politics in the household, according to FHB here (first item).

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour realizes the difference that education made in her life and, therefore, hopes local movers and shakers make a community college at Sandpoint a reality here.

Meanwhile, Katrina/Notes on a Napkin admits that poop makes her smile here, Granati/Orangefrog76 understands the MLKJr speech now here, Nic/Rants, Raves and Random Thoughts is suffering frost-bite -- at work here, Stebbijo/Stebbijo's Place provides the secret for making rice soup interesting here, and Bill/Whitecaps is amazed at AARP's persistence here.
