Welcome to any new visitors because of the Rocket City Bloggers meet-up! I should have put up a greeting sooner, but I found out my great-aunt passed away, so there were higher priority things to take care of.
The Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau hosted a very nice party tonight, catered by 3 Skillets (nom nom nom). The main goal for the Bureau is to increase visibility and tourism for Huntsville, especially with so many in the hospitality industry. Coming November 6-8 is the Social Media Tourism Symposium. Huntsville beat several larger cities in a contest to host the event.
I already knew Bo Williams from our days on the hsv.general newsgroup, and boy, was he pissed to find out I’d been secretly blogging all this time. Sorry! Sort of crossing the streams between the introvert engineer in real life and extrovert blogging diva here.
I’d like to give shoutouts to Rocket City Mom, The Dining Dragon, Stuff to Do, and One Unity Media. Special shoutout to Terri at Simply Saving Fashion. I gave her an idea for a new post (I will be checking!), and I also won the spa door prize she sponsored. It was a great evening, and I stayed longer than I expected, even with the steamy temperatures tonight.
There’s five years’ worth of interesting stories, tidbits of military info, good doses of ‘splodey, beautiful women featured every Monday in Load HEAT, occasional Caturdays, and my contributions from NASA and nerd-dom. Welcome, and please take a look around.
P.S. Hi, Ron!
