This is our little casual corner for informal posts on what we're doing, events we've attended, and the things we've eaten ;-) You can probably tell by that intro that this is the place where we let our hair down and just chat among ourselves.

We expect it to be fun, busy, and filled with links to friends as well as our other properties. We'll have guest writers from time to time, but the core will consist of the people mentioned in the kick-off post that you can read here.

There will definitely be content that is near and dear to our hearts, lots of photos, etc., but in part it's an area where not everything is going to be run past our editorial team. Expect live-blogging from events, microblogging, and more - on the fly, notes to ourselves, casual. If you are looking for our formal news section, check the main news button at the top there. The event calendar, classifieds, etc. can be reached from the left hand nav bar.
