It sounds like pandemonium when read as a list. 2009 is a clean slate. Hope we humans don't mess it up too bad this year.

I noticed the note at the end where the TT site is no longer there--the owners have had a personal tragedy and are no longer hosting it. I think we're on our own now!

Happy TT and Happy New Year!

Lazy Daisy said...

Interesting news items...what strange people live in the world.

The Bumbles said...

Those are truly bizarre - I don't ever want to make headlines like those!

Re T13, the 7 year-old granddaughter of one of the T13 hosts was recently diagnosed with leukemia so they no longer had the time to focus on T13. It seems they have put the site up for bid on Go Daddy or something.

We have continued on with the spirit of T13 under a new name called Thursday Thoughts. Think we'll try it out each week and see how it goes. Stop by anytime.

Well I'm glad the news I heard this morning was not that bad.

Interesting bits of news!

I will put a link to your site next week too if you are willing to host -- I see you have a Mr. Linky thing -- I don't have much traffic but as the word spreads more will participate. My sister had another person contact her that is also using Mr. Linky to keep things going. That link is on my TT post.

Thank you for helping me stay in touch with cyber friends I like to drop in on.
