Many moons ago, our estimable Reference Leader, Tracy, decided that we needed a blog. I'm fairly certain that our old co-worker Blair and I were not fanatics regarding the idea, but Tracy stuck with it and our blog was born. In that time, we've joined Facebook, Twitter, and Meebo, all in a happy effort to get tasty nuggets out to you, our adoring public! We brought you these tantalizing nuggets for nearly a year before tragedy struck. While we were preparing for the annual Mississippi Library Association Conference in 2008, the blog was deleted! Through the marvels of modern technology (which equates to a little typing and fiddling on my handy-dandy keyboard) we'll be reposting these old gems for your enjoyment over the next month or so. Be sure to look for the original post date in the header or the "old posts" label below!
I can't leave you without one small nugget! Did you know that the punk band The Ramones took their name from Paul McCartney of The Beatles fame? It's true! Apparently, Sir Paul used the name Paul Ramon when The Beatles were a young band on tour. Well, Hey! Ho!
