Post 1395 - Getting Out There

It would appear that Bevboy's Blog is slowly getting out there to the general public.  It's only taken 3 years!

I told you that I got a call out of the blue from Paul last month, and that we exchanged some emails.  He even sent me some pictures of Halifax disk jockeys from the 1960's and gave me permission to run them here.  I haven't done that yet, but I will.

In the last day or so, I have been getting some comments about the Pat Connolly interview published in 2009.  The writer wants to contact Pat and ask him some questions about a 1960's-era boxer from the area.  Pat's forte is boxing, which you already knew from reading the actual interview last year.  Just click on the Pat Connolly label and you'll be taken to both parts of the interview.

I am aware, and have browsed through, the Rick Howe "Radio Talk" book.  I don't know if he talks about the time I called in to the Hotline and proposed to Patricia right on the air.  I don't think I've wrtten about it at length here on the blog, so I will do that in this space, soon.  

I have downloaded the latest ubuntu version 10.10.  But I haven't installed it yet.  The old laptop I picked up Tuesday night is too wussy to run ubuntu, so it will be running puppy linux.  The new ubuntu is supposed to run faster than previous editions.  That's good, as ubuntu was getting pretty bloated there for a while.   I'll let you know what I think of it when I do get around to installing it, which should be in the next few days.

Is it the weekend yet?  I could kinda use one.
