Today's blogs

Chris Redford of KTBS has written a very moving blog post about Clay Barnard, the 13 year old who was killed while trying to save a little dog. If you haven’t read it yet, do so.
Opining Online is opining about the loony left meeting the deranged right.
The Opinionated Catholic has an opinion about the evil devious dirty Hawaii Football team coming to Louisiana Tech.
My Bossier is, as usual, keeping everyone up to date with the frolicking Haughton/Princeton trailer trash crowd. Today it’s a guy who claims he bit himself- on the face.
The Norla Blog has a good write-up about a local school principal who was arrested for DWI – after he threw a beer bottle out of his car and hit the Benton Police Chief’s personal vehicle.
North Louisiana bloggers are blogging every day – don’t miss out!

A snapshot of North Louisiana Blogs today

And So it Goes in Shreveport and The Opinionated Catholic are writing about President Obama, um, stretching the truth in a couple of instances.
Alexandyr Kent, however, is speaking nothing but the truth.

Trudeau is blogging about a local artist who has a unique idea about turning ashes into money.

The Upside of Downs just celebrated Riley’s 4th birthday. Check out the great pictures.

Wheeler is putting the kitties outside, but he is having some guilt issues.

Chris Redford is addressing the “F” word. No, not that “F” word – he’s about to turn 40 and is not a happy camper.
As for Todd, well, he can kiss my grits!

Who woulda thought? North Louisiana has a blog for nudists.

North Louisiana Naturist was Organized in Feb. 2007 when new int(e)rest was found in Monroe Louisiana.
Mar. 12, 2007 the North Louisiana Naturist web site was born.
Naked: Not wearing clothes.
Nekkid: Not wearing clothes and you're up to something.
I checked out this blog and the folks just appear to just be naked. (No, there are no pictures.)
The blog is based in Bastrop, La., north of Monroe.
Since this blog is for all of you, I'll let you decide - should we link or not. Personally, I see no reason not to.
I'm putting a poll in the sidebar - please vote.

North Louisiana Blogs take note of Patrick Swayze's passing

Several North Louisiana Blogs have posted about Patrick Swayze, who passed away from cancer today.
And So It Goes in Shreveport posted Patrick Swayze: 1952 - 2009. My Bossier was to the point with Patrick Swayze dead of cancer.
The Opinionated Catholic showed a little more passion with Wolverines !!! Lets Take Back America For Patrick!!
Meanwhile, totally off the subject of Patrick Swayze and hoping that Baptists may have a sense of humor, The Norla Blog posted Local Church To Host Beer Festival.
I thought it was funny . . .

The Upside of Downs

Last month my friend Alena LaBorde started blogging. The Upside of Downs is already gaining readers, and will be successful because Alena is writing about the thing that is nearest and dearest to her heart, her daughter Riley.
When my daughter was born(almost 4 years ago) she was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. After the shock wore off, I immersed myself in finding all the information I could on Downs. Books and the Internet provided a lot of valuable, scientific, clinical, and medical information. There was however, a lack of real world info. To help fill this void, I am BLOGGING. This will be a light hearted, irreverent, and true account of raising a child who is beautiful, smart, funny, sassy, sweet, loving, kind, and who happens to have Down Syndrome. I hope that this blog will bring smiles and laughter and show UPSIDE of DOWNS!
I have had the privilege of knowing Riley from the time she was born and can attest that she truly is a remarkable little girl.
Alena and Gerard are bringing her up right, as you can see from the outfit in the picture!
