Hmmmm....Hmmmm....I may be able to swing one of those. Since I've already sold my grandmother out and never went to visit her or the others...and I cannot go on Sept. nor can I go in November...I can plan for in between in Oct. Yeah....and then just figure out how far this is from MA, LOL. Nah - I better sit these out and *hope* Joe returns to FL sometime soon :0)

If I do go, it will be the 25th. But I may just save myself for Halloween!

Don't want him to think I am a stalker or something! LOL

You know I kinda wish Joe's blog had an "Appearances" tab to click on. Would that be something you could add Shane?

It kind of does... down on the right hand margin, under "Categories" you'll see 'Appearances' there -- though, clicking on it usually brings up past appearances. However, if you look through them you'll see that Joe does give heads-up nods to places he's going to be, too. So, what you're looking for, I think, really *is* there.

It could be tabbed, but it's not something I feel like we're leaning towards doing. Each of the three sites has a feature the others do not -- and though this is a good reminder for me to update the appearances on the MySpace page, it's not the kind of thing I think we'll be maneuvering over to the blog. Joe mentions appearances there in his posts, and we collect them here on the board in a specific folder, and they're highlighted over on the MySpace page in a list. For programming reasons I won't begin to bore you with, placing a new header item in the menu on the main site is kind of a pain in the rear. Now, this is not to say one person needs to go to all three to get their Joe Hill news, but that you can pick up on it from any of them, just in different ways. Hmm... maybe that's not coming out the way I meant it to, but with any luck, you're getting my point.

There's a lot going on, but we try to make sure the information is available as much as possible. :)

Thanks Shane. I'll put Joe's MySpace on my favs. I don't have a MySpace so I guess that's why I'm not a regular visitor to Joe's. And I'll keep an eye on that "Appearances" thingy on the blog. BTW, you mention 3 sites...what's the 3rd?
