Shopping Alert!! - 11/20/07 07:02 PM
Yes, it’s time for Christmas shopping, and I’m sure you have people on your list that just make you wonder what the heck you can get for them. If you live around here, let me give you a big hint: Blenko. If you think it might be a good idea to give something beautiful, you want Blenko. If you want to give something that is one of a kind, it’s got to be Blenko. If you want something distinctly West Virginian, crafted with pride, think Blenko. I could go on all day. I love the gorgeous colors and there (23 comments)
A Quiet Fountain - 11/13/07 04:54 AM
The fountain at Marshall University will be turned off tomorrow. If you’ve seen the movie “We Are Marshall”, you know why. November 14, 1970, the DC-9 carrying Marshall’s football team, coaches and some of their fans clipped some trees just before the Tri-State Airport and crashed. All 75 aboard the plane were killed. Although Huntington is our second largest city, it is still a small town. Imagine everyone in your town touched with grief. Then imagine them trying to learn to go on. That is one of the hardest parts of grief, living. This fountain helped. It was installed two (14 comments)

We're All Just Looking for a Fix - 11/08/07 05:34 AM
Tall One has started reading my Stephen King books. I was her age when I first “discovered” him, and I love that she’s reading my old books. She’s starting with Salem’s Lot and snuck it to school. She brought it home, amazed, and told me to look in the front. There was my name in my loopy teenage script, “Sarah Murphy”. Wow, that takes me back! She is enjoying the book and said she needed to ask me a few questions. I thought it would be about the book and was trying to remember the story line. No, she wanted to (26 comments)
Sorry, Jeff. No disrespect intended at all. But that’s how I felt when your wife Rocky thought something I wrote was good enough for her Mothers Fighting For Others blog. I will admit that I don’t feel worthy to be there. I mean, take a look at their writers page! It starts with Rocky Turner and Julie Ferenzi, the founders of the site. (You might know them both as AR members – and if you don’t, you should.) But look through the rest of them! I don’t know them yet, but they are survivors, authors, activists, heroes – they (15 comments)
I'm the Last One in West Virginia - 11/06/07 06:41 AM
I just got done watching “We Are Marshall”. Around here we just call it “the Marshall movie”. I am probably the last person in West Virginia to watch this movie. I wanted to while it was at the theater. Somehow I didn’t. I bought the movie as soon as it came out. It’s been sitting with the rest of my movies, in somewhat good company, but I just couldn’t do it. I knew that they died. I know that we have to go on. It’s just hitting to close to home. Yes, I came to tears several times. But (15 comments)
Listing Photos Matter - 11/02/07 11:54 AM
This morning I looked through our MLS at listings that have expired. I looked only at residential listings that expired within the last two weeks. This is a small area so we only had 68. Well, “only” is in the eye of the beholder. We could also say that in this small area, 68 families were unable to move within their listing periods. I have been there as a seller myself, and it’s not a happy position to be in. Sellers want to move and get on with their lives. I wondered what kept these houses from selling. Two things (34 comments)
