Good Time to Carry Cash

There is a pretty massive FiberNet outage this morning that is affecting the entire state. As well as many businesses being without phone and internet, many people are going to be out of luck when they try to pay for lunch or gas with a credit or a checking card, as I found out first-hand this morning when I went to IntaJuice.

Sad News - Jessco and Norma Jean has spilt again

The Charleston Daily Mail reports: Jesco and Norma Jean are splitsville -- again

Both Jessco and Norma Jean's autographs hang on my wall. I had to spell Bill for him. I got them at the at a event to watch Jessco on Roseanne. Sadly Jesso's appearance ended up on the cutting room floor. He only appeared at the end dancing on the porch. This was all documented in Jacob Young's Dancing Outlaw 2: Jesco goes to Hollywood

I've owned at least four copies of Dancing Outlaw, but they were all loaned to friends and never returned. At this point I'm not sure who has them. I need to get a copy on DVD anyway. I think I'll check Netflix.
