Those of you who follow me on Facebook know that my latest venture into KeepingDebbieBusy has been to join the local volunteer fire department as their resident web & photography geek. This afternoon, after a month of pulling info together (and some browbeating of people who still haven't sent me their bios...), I took the new site live!

Then, after a couple of weeks with no pager action, we had two back-to-back runs this evening and I actually got to put shiny new content on our baby website. :-) First a vehicle fire (where I felt really bad for the owner, who was just starting the process of rebuilding it when it caught fire... Thankfully, it's an old, solid, mostly metal car and the fire was pretty much contained to the engine compartment where he was going to be replacing everything anyway) and then an "unknown fire" which turned out to just be a really big (and quite pretty) bonfire called in by a worried passerby.

So that's what up in my world. What's up with you?

I took a brief look at the web site, and it has a highly commendable content to dancing badgers ratio. Could you please take over more web sites that I use?

I spent several hours today cuddling malamutes. I feel good.

I notice one of the station rosters mentions a retired unit.

Is it old enough to be interesting photographically?

Oh, yeah; I remember those Post-War front ends. My grandparents had a Nash Ambassador that looked a lot like that. I don't really remember it personally, but there is a picture of me in a Family Album with that car in the background. I DO remember the 1949 Mercury that we had up-until about the time I was in third grade.

Drat! That car looks very much like a 1965 2-door Chevy Impala with the Coke-bottle top. I've been wishing for another one of those for decades. Hope he can work around the burned parts!

Hey! Checked out the website. Lookin' good.

Out of curiosity....

1) Do the owners of the burned property have to OK the use of photos of their property? I could see the possibility of hurt feelings, embarrassment and weirdness from having a relatively small fire widely publicized.

2) Is there a specific reason to use it courier? for the contact info? It's a font that's notoriously hard to read on a screen rather than on paper. (Other fun fact: it is more difficult for the human eye to read all caps if there are more than seven words.) Same font is used for the roster and all run stats.

Font size is a little smaller than the rest of the site - still readable, but a little bit small. But yes, much better! Yeay!
