03/17/2009: "You Betcha It's Good!"

This weekend I missed the Alaska Library Association's annual conference which was held in Kodiak Alaska. My friend Wendy Girven made it, however, and took this lovely photo from the Kodiak Island Brewery:

Too funny!

The weekend before last a masked man robbed the girl scout's at Fred Myers grocery store (that's my friend Caroline and her daughter Rebbecca in the photo).

So, this past Sat. Sarah Palin was at Fred Myer to meet the Girl Scouts who had been robbed and in this photo she is shaking hands with Rebbecca.

It's still a little weird to me that SP became such a national figure; I wonder if it will last.

Oh well, Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Hi O'Joan, is this Joan R? Or another O'Neillite?

Alas, no green beer was had, but I did get to see the movie Coraline which was very interesting and beautiful.

That was and this is this usual Joan R (now S). Elise, I heard on NPR a gallon of milk in Alaska was around $12. Is that true for the whole state or just the more desolate areas? Also, what are some of the other comparables?
