Back to the real world…

And a farewell, sort of…

With the ‘final’ poll, I wrap up the ‘blog’ portion of my website; the place will stay open, as I do get the occassional query on Glory Whalen. A few of my favourite posts will stay ‘live’, but for the most part, the rest goes ‘private’, destined to rest in the background.

Today I start my new career with the Wasaga and Stayner Sun – sister publication to the Collingwood Connection, so you’ll still see my byline on occasion. It wasn’t an easy decision to make the jump from the E-B, but at the end of the day, it was the right one.

So, the focus from here on out is on writing some great stories for my new employer, family, the canoe club, trying to stay healthy (my attendance at the Y has suffered of late), and a couple of personal writing projects. You may see the rare posting here, but otherwise, in the words of one of my favourite authors… So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish…

The polls to end all polls… #CwoodVotes2014

These will be the final three polls I’ll be running for this campaign; they’ll be open until 8 a.m. on the 20th, so lots of opportunity for plumping.

And for now, I’m off for the rest of the week… Councillor Chadwick has even blocked me from following him on Twitter – because that’s what an Open and Accountableâ„¢ councillor would do – so I can’t even keep up on how this current council was the light and the hope, and a change would be a gathering darkness on the land, with the nine council members becoming ringwraiths…
