Report on meeting of blog conspirators

Went to a social affair this afternoon, a fine finale for the holiday season, and it turned out to be all full of Vicad bloggers, half a dozen or so. There were exchanges of information and opinion, all executed with lots of giggles. Everyone is agreed that the paper is cratering quickly. As someone elsewhere said, 'Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?' Pore ol Advocate.

I've seen Irma Thomas at the Jazzfest, long time ago, as I haven't been in more than 20 years. I once wrote about Jazzfest for the SW Airlines mag and took the fee and went to New Orleans. Best act I ever saw there was Aaron Neville in the Gospel Tent. A breathtaking voice, Neville's. I'll just throw him in. Doofus vid but such a voice:

I have no idea what kind of promoter you might be, but would bet everything I have-including Jake-that you could do no worse...

Next time, I want to win a door prize, but then again, my El Camino already has two doors.

Hope Victoria fixes that rogue French flag that is on the city seal.

I had a great time and it's fun to "remember" with others about the times we had hope for Victoria.
