Why I've been MIA . . .

Posted by bj on Wednesday, June 8, 2011

I've been really busy with a very special project and haven't had a lot of time to "play" in more ways than one, though I have been getting fiddle time in, including the first festival at Black Creek, which was STELLAR.

The project is the PA Public Bank Project. I just launched the website after Mike Krauss and I worked hard to get it completed. He's the PA coordinator, I'm the web geek on this project.

The reason I'm so excited about it is that I finally feel like I'm doing something positive for myself and for our country, especially The Other 98% who have been feeling the all the pain of this so-called recession that feels more like a depression.

The Public Bank Project is a non-partisan effort to get us out from under Wall Street and The Fed's disastrous policies of the last 11 years, which favor the Corporations over regular people. I won't go into any more details since FHO doesn't want any political schtuff on here. If you're interested in learning more, follow the link. If you're not in PA, there are efforts in many other states as well.

Hey, BJ! We've missed you. Glad to hear you're doing good. I just assumed you had a mania, and were doing the polka from Pennsylvania. :-)

Glad to see this blog post- I was just trying to SEARCH for you, wondering where you'd been, and the search engine said to type at least THREE letters... and that's not possible with your user name!!!

Actually I figgered you were off festival hopping... glad you got at least one in.
