Welcome To The All New BoiseBlog!

Those of you who are regular visitors have now noticed that I  (ahem!) made a few changes to BoiseBlog over the weekend :)

The old blog had been on the air since 9/16/06 and it was time to refresh the site.

The new site features a quick MLS search up top, and also the deeper MLS search with a link in the top horizontal navigation bar.

The photography in the slider bar is mine and will be updated from time to time.

I will also be implementing a new format for my virtual tours (after I learn how to do it!)

We’re still working on a few minor issues, but the site is 99% operational now.

I would like your input, so please free to post some comments!

 

BoiseBlog Achieves 1,900 Posts!

Celebration Balloons

Today’s post is my 1,900th post since this blog went on the air September 16, 2006.

Since then, I have written 293,009 words on BoiseBlog.

Using 103 different languages around the world, you (my visitors) have visited Boiseblog 124,868 times.

During those visits, you have amassed a total of 425,607 page views.

95.05% of you are in the United States.

There’s one each of you in Armenia, Djibouti, Botswana, Sudan, Kyrgystan, Myanmar, Suriname,  Yemen and several other countries.

I suspect the one visitor in Brunei may be a rich oil sultan who’s considering moving to Eagle, but I’m not sure! :)

12,316 of you have visited BoiseBlog more than 201 times.

It’s interesting that roughly half of you are my loyal returning visitors.

I guess you’re the ones who return every day to see what I’ve written?

I appreciate all of you more than you will ever know!

Without you, this blog would be insignificant!

 

Daylight Savings Time Reminder

 

Two O'Clock

 

Daylight Savings Time is coming tomorrow (Sunday) morning @ 2:00 a.m.

The USFTCC (United States Federal Time Compliance Commission) will have NSA drones in the skies above U.S. cities, remotely scanning clocks to ensure compliance with the time change.

Remember to set your clocks ahead one hour at precisely 2:00 a.m. to avoid getting a citation! :)

 

Beautiful Bogus Basin Ski Area

I got back up to Bogus Basin yesterday for a day of incredible skiing.

This was my first time on the slopes in nearly six years and I’m delighted to say that I managed to remain upright and keep the pointy ends forward all day!

It’s hard to beat Bogus Basin midweek on a beautiful, sunny day with almost no people on the mountain!

I got ten runs in and never shared a lift chair with anyone!

My longest lift line was one person ahead of me! :)

Bogus Basin is Boise’s best-kept secret and half an hour from downtown Boise!
