Kirk, what is a blog?
--Linda Murray Mon Jul 10 10:19:31 2006
Hey Linda, nice to see you here!
A "blog" is a regularly updated website. Usually either by (and about) one person, and/or on a specific topic (not of general interest, so "CNN.com" doesn't really count)
Blogs often have a "reverse chronological" format with the new stuff on top so that regular readers don't have to scroll down to see the new content.
This site is a bit of a Blog, but with more of an emphasis on quotes and links than many other blogs, which are often even more focused on the author's life.

Huh, so maybe that is where "Pluck Your Magic Twanger" got its genesis-- though I wouldn't know the expression if it hadn't been on the "Pac Man Fever" album in the 80s.

The Buster Brown Show every Saturday, first on radio, and then on TV. the host would introduce Froggy the Gremlin, saying....
"Plunk your magic twanger, Froggy!!"
(sound effect) Twaaaaaaggggggg
Froggy in a gruff voice,"Hiya, kids, Hiya, hiya!!"

Err, I meant to say, I knew it came from some older show, but they got the idea for it from the twanging sound frogs make, and then Pac Man Fever fished it out of the memepool of the 80s looking at the 50s.
--Kirk Mon Jul 10 20:45:32 2006
Huh. Never heard that saying before.
--The_Lex Mon Jul 10 22:40:36 2006
I sense your early life was Pac Man Fever deficient. Perhaps you exhibited some basic immunity.
--Kirk Tue Jul 11 07:01:40 2006
Interesting way to put it.

RitaI often woednr the same thing, should I go ahead and do it? The whole process makes me angry. Writing queries is hard and you can have a good novel, but if you are not good at cramming your whole novel in 200 words, you're out of luck. Good luck with this.

Hi My name is Janice and I came across your site thourgh a Facebook friend's post regarding a photo contest. I'm a twin too, and my sister and I are always trying to figure out what to do with our blog which we've been hashing over for a few years now. Guess we just have to get Nike and just do it like you two. Anyway, if I were to win the adorable baby gift basket I would give it to my sweet sister-in-law who is due with her first in February. We've had a hard year with the passing of our mutual mother-in-law, and she passed away before they got to tell her about the newest grandchild-to-be. She would have been so thrilled and this baby would have been so spoiled by Gramma as it's been 11 years since there has been a grandbaby! We ♥ her & miss her.
