Gonzo and Wogen Watch are dropped for the time being as there has been no activity at either for awhile, but will be glad to re-add them to the blogroll when/if they crank up again. Meanwhile, be sure to check out Big DeKalb, a new site for local music and culture. If you know of any other up-and-coming family-friendly local sites, let me know.

An updated version of WordPress is in order for CityBarbs–we could really use a “recent comments” section in the sidebar, couldn’t we?–but will wait until after the budget hearings as it must be assumed I will mess up the installation.

Speaking of the budget as we so often do has more than tripled the traffic to CityBarbs in the past few weeks, which causes no end of thrills. Thanks everyone!
