Blogworld & New Media Expo is once again finished for the year. I am looking forward to getting home but I am also sad to leave the energy of such dynamic people. Sure I can visit their blogs and see them online on twitter and Facebook but to sit down and have a conversation, well there is nothing else like it. This year things really started to pick up for me. I met so many new people and reconnected with people I already knew. I was also confident enough to talk to many of the people that I would not have had the guts to approach 3 years ago. Now people are even recognizing me and I’m not sure what to do with that other than to say “Thank You”
Actor/Comedian Mitch Hedberg passed away of a heart attack today. Allison and I are watching his comedy central special. He was a funny guy. Also here is another link with some of Mitch’s quotes. Mitch’s website has been taken down. No memorial page there yet. His site is mitchhedberg.net but I’m not sure if anything will be posted there. After the special there was an in memorial photo and final quote by Mitch which he ended his special with, “I love you guys” and under his picture and the dates of his life and death it said we loved you too. I won;t lie it kinda got me a bit choked up.
Frank Perdue also passed away today. I really miss the Perdue chicken ads that he used to do. His son is funny also but I really liked Frank’s commercials. The Perdue website has photo of Frank on the first page of the website.
Goodbye Mitch and Frank.
Also as we know Pope John Paul II’s health is rapidly deteriorating. Let us pray that he does not suffer too long. MSNBC had some great information about the life of Pope John Paul II. At the Vatican’s website there is a place to send well wishes via e-mail to Pope John Paul II. The Vatican’s website is pretty high tech and up to date. So many things in so many different languages.
