Happy Holiday!

I hate that I haven’t had any time to devote to the blog this week, even as so much is going on in Oakland. Anyway, happy 4th of July to all my readers. Check back next week to learn all about what’s going on with the Army Base, plus other fun stuff. Use this as an open thread.

I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend. Myself, I’m very much looking forward to taking a little break, and also watching one of my favorite movies, 1776. Singing! About the Declaration of Independence! It just doesn’t get much better than that.

    Hey VS, not sure where to ask this or how to contact you so i’ll just use this “open thread”. i’m going to add a local blogs category on the RockridgeResidents.org site. I’d love to put up a link to your blog and a 1 line description. How could I describe it? (ie, one of the others i’m about to add was something about “Green Living”, as that’s the author’s focus).

    Thanks again for some great thoughts, my brain hurts from using it too much…

    Ok, i’m a dumbass. I swear i’ve looked at this page 100 times, and only *after* putting up this comment did I realize there’s a “contact” button.

    Good thing I never had any credibility to begin with…

    1776 is indeed a great movie! It’s even better as a live musical, (At Oakland’s Woodminster theater, for example) because there is an extra number. It was my kids’ favorite. Purple (my middle child) was disappointed when American History class didn’t spend much time on the subject. I think it may have influenced her to sing and act, though.

    For those that were around, how were the fireworks at JLS? I was sorry to see that they had the area around Scott’s at the end of Broadway all torn up. Too bad they couldn’t wait just a few extra weeks to start that particular construction project. (which is adding palm trees to the Square – one of my least favorite things)

    I had a really good time getting out of town and not thinking so much about local politics. Had some very interesting national politic discussions to make up for it. ;)
