July on CHB

Happy Birthday, CHB! Exactly one year ago today, I started this site. I was worried I'd run out of things to write about. (Can't believe that now!) I'll be having a big Blog Birthday Bash in conjunction with RePop (also celebrating their one-year this month) sometime in August. Stay tuned for details. firstbirthdaypiks-copy.jpg

Thanks to all readers and commentors for contributing to the site, and keeping it alive. I could never keep the site up without your tips, questions and feedback.


The party will be delayed due to the fact that I am going to be spending three weeks in Krakow, Poland for an intensive grad school semester (starting next week). I will have spotty internet access there, and have made provisions for some pre-drafted posts to go up daily while I am away. I have a large amount of historical stuff ready to go (postcards and photos) and hopefully hey mama will jump in with any breaking news. Continue sending tips to our gmail address. krakow-square-1.jpg

I hope to post a few "Brooklyn vs Krakow" pieces while I'm away.

See you in August! (I'm working on bringing in some Kelso kegs for the bash, so we can all support our local brewery!)
