it may just be me, but i’d expect a headline like “naked women showering on the streets of fresno” to at least make its way in the top 5. maybe it should have said “heidi watney …”

lesson learned :)

Mike Oz says:

2008, the calendar year.

Each month should be a pic of the top 12 commentors on the hive!

-The Pilots of Air Mesa/US Air who flew out over the broad expanse of the SanJoaquin valley, looking like a forever bowl of curdled milk, –only to dive down into this stuff (instead of diverting to Monterey,) actually LANDING SMOOTHLY at FAT, –only to crash into a taco truck on the taxiway…
(just kidding,)
-though some schmuck getting arrested on the flight from Phoenix to Newark was the entertainment on Christmas


Some TSA dweeb stole one of the wrapped slices of ‘Jersey Pizza I had in my luggage today, after leaving a ‘we had to check your luggage’ note… (grumble.)

Happy 2009, Fresburgh…

Vince says:

2008 was the “Year of the Blog” for me. I never really got into it, or knew exactly what it was until this year. I dabble a bit for my movie, Beaten Path.
But between the Beehive and The Dumb Drum, I kept myself entertained and informed, while waiting for video to render.
