Gasoline craziness

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

It seems a bit of a panic has broken out here in Atlanta over a possible gasoline shortage. People are lining up at the pumps all over the Atlanta area, and a lot of stations are running dry. Some stations that still have gas available are jacking prices way up as a result. On my way home from work today, I personally saw a station charging $3.49/gal for Regular, but I heard several reports on the radio of prices over $5.00 or even $6.00/gal. It got so bad that the governor had to step in to prevent further price gouging.

Welcome to the Family News blog

Saturday, August 27th, 2005

The PittCrew Family News is now a blog! I always intended for it to be somewhat blog-like, but adding content to the old Family News page involved too much overhead for quick updates. Now the blog software will manage that overhead for me, and allow me to dash off a quick post from any Web browser. I’m hoping that will lead to more frequent updates about all the semi-interesting (at least to us) little tidbits in our lives. We’ll see how it goes.

Another feature of the new format is that readers can leave their own comments on a post. I’m asking that you register your name and e-mail address before posting a comment, but don’t worry because your e-mail address will never be exposed to other readers. Please register and post a comment to let us know how you like the new format.

And finally, for the geekier types like me, there is now an RSS feed so that you can get updates without constantly checking the site to see if anything has changed.
