On And Off The Grid

You remember the NorCal calamity two years ago when I was trying to boost the signal from the fire station?  The good news is, I now have a sure fire hotspot in Watsonville.  The bad news is, it’s a bit of a trek from where I’ll be parked the next few days.  So bottom line, we’ll see how much I get down out of the hills.  (One incentive is that I’m sure you’re dying to deconstruct old Rush’s cigar – pic/verbiage.)

  …And while I’m rambling, I’m sure you’ve noticed that the pics have gotten decidedly LARGER here this past week.  That’s due to the shift to a two-column format.  (And not just because I’m having Big Picture envy.)  Besides being a progressive blog and a media blog, BNN is, after all, also a photo blog.  I should add that I’m nearing the end of the road in terms of playing blog designer and (among a handful of plans in the works) I’m looking for an outfit to give The BAG the platform it deserves.  (If you have recommendations, by the way, please pass ’em along.)

Enjoy, and happy 4th.
