    Not a bad idea for a blog, but requires better writing and editing. “Witlow’s” and random capitalization.

      Agreed. I think that blogger should wait until the mimosas wear off before writing. TONS of careless mistakes.

    The brunch club website is a good idea, but the execution needs some serious work. It appeared to be a geocities website (ie unreadable).

    Is this morning’s photo of the Chamber’s website, or outdoor seating in Shirlington?

      In addition to counting the salaries for PR staff, the question should be asked, how much is the county spending to be a member of this group? If you look at these technology solutions “awards”, don’t you think it’s rather coincidental that every awardee is a member government of the awarding group?
