Four years in and the Blog Awards are becoming a bona fide Asheville tradition. This year, the big party happens on Friday, Oct. 30, the night before Halloween, earning it the name Spookyblogapaloozananny.
The online ballot is up, votes are pouring in and bloggers are already making deals to win your vote. From “Best Writing” to “Blogger You’d Most Like to Have a Beer With” to the always-classy “Blogger You’d Like to See Naked,” there are enough categories to flummox even the bloggiest among us. Another change this year, Twitter-ers are also up for your consideration.
Then, don your Halloween best and come out to the Pump Gallery at the Phil Mechanic Building on Friday, Oct. 30, at 7 p.m. for the big event. The $10 cover benefits AHOPE and entertainment includes juggling, comedy and music from Albatoss Party and It’s Elephants.

heres a idea,,,,how many people really get an extra hour of sleep when we turn the clocks back,(i think its a myth),
i still go to bed at 230 am and up by 700 am,i feel as if i have lost sleep since i graduated from high school way back over thirty2 years ago,
i do feel however that i definately lose an hour,when we run them forward,,,
i suppose all we really gain is daylight ..

very lil rest time …and even after eight surgeries,i havent slowed down…so
and thanks for asking…happy holidays
but.. jeff … have you ever walked five miles to school through 10 foot snow drifts while carrying a sack of coal to keep the school marm warm??
my first years in school were in marion nc,we walked to school from 1st grade on,,we left the house walked down a half mile driveway,,went up accross the railroad tracks down the other side to the river,we skipped stones over the water and up the hill through the swamp,,after the swamp there was this old cementary with civil war age gravesmm..it was kinda spooky but then we went through an open pasture ,onto the road down the hill to east marion elementary …many times then during winter the snow drifts were several fett,,but never ten…this was everyday school travel till the end of fourth grade,,,
my greatgrandmother walked in snow up town mountain to go to church ,during winter months ..with a passle full of children..my family didnt have silver platters,,we survive as we can..we do what we can to help…
Well now you know Jeff walked at least ten miles to and fro through 9 to 10 months of slow, sleet and hail.
Just you wait, he’ll let us all know (yet again) about his heroic life…and because of this one should never question his motives or agenda.
