Facebook Update

Hey friends, when I was getting ready to vacate Facebook, I realized that the Facebook page that’s an extension of this web site would have to be deleted as a result of my leaving. Even though I am now off of Facebook, I found a way to keep the page active, so it’s not going away after all. Yay! Start the party! So, the Facebook page is staying intact and active and will continue to mirror the posts here as it always has. Also, when Mike’s Dam Podcast launches on February 1st, those podcast episodes will post on the Facebook page as well.

Thanks for supporting my endeavors!

The Leap to Twitter

First came Facebook, then came Twitter. Yes, pageaz.org is now on Twitter. If you’re there and would like to hook up, you can find me at https://twitter.com/page_az. Or simply @page_az. I put the Twitter feed in the sidebar too. I hope to see you there!

The Leap to Facebook

Well, I did it. I made the leap to Facebook! If you’re on Facebook, please hook up with me there too and feel free to like my page. Send your Facebook friends there too. I just built the page today, but all of my blog posts are there. I’m using Facebook to mirror this site, not replace it. I’ll still be posting all my stuff here and mentioning my posts there. Check it out and jump right in:

December Break

Hey all, I’m taking a break from blogging for the month of December and I’ll pick back up again in January. I want to leave you with a Christmas picture of early Page. Check it out…

There isn’t anything written on the back of this picture except the name of the photographer and the date. I don’t know who that was dressed up as Santa. At first, I thought this was in the school gymnasium, which would have been new that year. But the more I look at it, I think it was somewhere else. That door in the background has a big window in it and the doors to the gym weren’t like that, at least not that I remember. I also thought at first that those were bleachers along the back wall, but I think it’s only a bench of some sort. Does anyone know what building this was in? There are two faces that I recognize, but I don’t have names to go with them.

How about you? Do you see any familiar faces in this shot? If so, let me know.

Enjoy your holidays and I will “see” you next year!

Computer Woes

I’ve been having some computer problems, so there won’t be a post today. I normally schedule Monday and Thursday posts in advance, but not this week. I should be able to resume my normal schedule on Monday. Thanks everyone who reads my posts and for your comments.

The Mother Lode

I hooked up with Gene late last week and he loaned my a bunch of pictures that had been in storage for use on this site. Gene and I started first grade together in Page, so there is some history and shared memories there. In all, he loaned me just over 120 pictures, almost all of which are 8 x 10 black and whites dating back to the late 50s.

I’m excited to share these with you. So far, I’ve scanned about half of them and I hope to finish up this week. Since they’re so large, I’ve decided to give the site a facelift by installing a new template that is wider and takes up more of the screen.  That will allow me to keep the pictures closer to their 8×10 original size.

Did I mention that these pictures are amazing?

Later,

Mike
