Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
Some might say that Russ and I have frittered away more than a few hours on the Burlingame Voice, but it's our time to waste if we like and we find it cathartic. We also get enough positive feedback from sources known (and unknown) that it feels worthwhile. Ever since the days of the hard copy Voice hand-delivered to porches across town, he and I (along with various compatriots along the way) have provided an informed, vocal and intensely local opinion about events. The move to on-line back on July 25, 2003 saved the time of designing and delivering the paper version and offered an opportunity to increase the reach and frequency and reduce costs. The platform costs $14.99 a month which is much cheaper than a therapist! You can check out those first few posts here.

When all is said and done, the Voice blog is a means for us to not suffer the fate Pink Floyd bemoans in Time

Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
If one is to "scribble lines" they might as well be a full page worth! Thank you, dear readers and commenters. Onward to another 15 years!
