Councilwomen Blondell Reynolds-Brown checking out the new arts & culture section, which is in the Thursday’s edition of the Philadelphia Metro – did I mention that?

Thanks so much for visiting PCC this week. OMG I was so busy, I am now getting the occassional Photographer for hire events, and those photos must be turned around and sent out to the client in a very short time, so that’s why my blog entries are sometimes delayed. Also if a photo from an event is to be in one of the media organization I contribute to, well that’s another delay. The biggest being Michael Klein’s Sunday column which always delays the photos a week. I am going to work on a solution for that so I can be more current. I know people have been inquiring about a few parties I’ve attended and I promise I will be posting them this week. The numbers this week are unbelievable, but of course I wrote about the Phillies, oh and I get about 100 inquires about the Henri David Ball and the Elvira event through google. So just think it took me a year and a day to get 100,000 hits, and less than 4 months to get 60,000 hits. So thank you very much, especially to my daily readers. – HughE PS Check out this cool Obama picture a few artist constructed in a Shickshinny, Pennsylvania Field of Hope
