Twitter in Your Nuclear Town

From 21st Century Disaster Tips You Will Not Hear From Officials.

We live right next to a Nuclear power plant at San Onofre California and being an avid twitter user, and knowing what we know about former catastrophes I contacted my city about using twitter in some way. Got a nice reply, but nothing ever came of it. When I noticed our mayor was looking for questions for her blog, (No commenting, No RSS Feed, Blog??) I sent one off and I want to share it with you here....

"Thanks for starting a mayors blog Lori, very cool, …The question from me for your blog is… when do you plan on using twitter, and more importantly when does the City of San Clemente plan to start using twitter?" -Darin

And I sent her a link to this blog post that I did back in 2007.

"Hi Darin. About Twitter: It may well have a role in San Clemente in our long term business plan for the city. Short term, we are committed to promoting ease of access via the City website, email and web based tools such as bill-paying, recreation sign ups and news to our immediate community. As the community embraces the website, it may be that Twitter is added. In the meantime consider joining the “Mayor’s eList”. It’s an email subscription with the latest blog postings. You can think of it as our interim RSS feed." -Lori

In reply, I make this blog post in 2009, and again in 2010, using free tools, that give me two RSS Feeds, An Archive, Commenting, and many other bells and whistles.

Isn't She Lovely

From Katherine Hudson McClure HELLO WORLD!

Today my mind turns to my first born, now 9, who saw her little sister Kate come into this world on Saturday. I can rem being 9 and having my sister come into this world. When you are an only child and you see the other kids playing with thier brothers and sisters, it is the one thing you wish for most. The song on the radio when Susan was born was Isn't She Lovely by Stevie Wonder, and I can rem mom and my spare dad crying over that song. kinda making me teary eyed as I write this, but I feel that way right now. Isnt she lovely, Lisa you made the perfect little girl, and the perfect little sister for Ella & I love you all Daddy
