David, I attended my first Blog Fest this evening and had a very enjoyable time. I met some new people and found support for my County Council Campaign that would not otherwise be available to me. It was also enjoyable to see Gort42 and share a few thoughts with him. Who knows, Gort42 may be back in business someday soon and many look forward to it. I also had the opportunity to meet Harold Jenkins of the "Another Monkey" blog. There is a whole other world out there if we look for it. As for the old world, I found childhood neighbors Helen Pace and family along with Sally Scott and a few others I haven't seen in some time. Rooney's did a great job hosting the event. I thank both you and Joe Valenti for making this evening possible. Thanks, Wil Toole, County Council Candidate.
