A few photos of last night's wonderful retrospective. Everyone, I can say with assurance, had a great time and wants the festival to continue. They'll have to do something about that is what we say. It was fun seeing everyone searching out photos of themselves in the displays of women's fest memorabilia and in the magazine Common Ground and seeing the changes in all of us through the twenty-four years this event covered. A great, successful event. Whew!!!!
Music stats today cause it's the 11th of the month.

- This is totally bizarre for the second month in a row. Don't Lie by the Black Eyed Peas got 410 hits this month. It has now been played from my page 694 times. I'd guess someone has it bookmarked. It was played 234 times last month.
