CB Back

SOOOOOOOO........................

Alot has been said the past few days about the blog. To say I was in Shock would be an understatement.

This has all been blown WAY out of proportion.

Neither I, nor my readers purposefully set out to insult ANYONE.

I, and it seems most of my followers, enjoy a dryer, sarcastic tone when it comes to our humor. Maybe certain people did not catch that when they looked through only one or two posts without reading the blog as a whole.

Maybe I made a Mistake by Not making the Title of that one Post "DC Men In DH". (I am not changing it by the Way so That it can serve as a constant reminder of past mistakes.)

Sorry, I make mistakes, I am only Human. And Personally I have learned more from my mistakes than I EVER have from my successes........



Will I make more mistakes? YES. When I make a Mistake call me on it, just realize that it was not done with malicious intent, it was a mistake. That is how you learn. And there is so much more I look forward to learning about this remarkable place I now call home.



Will I continue to post DC news, Updates and pictures? YES! It is an interest of mine, and I enjoy it. In particular Freddie and Vanessa Have become good friends and I enjoy hanging out with them. It is nice to have friends that are not fellow workers at the hotel or Unisea.



Will I continue to show my little adventures about the area? YES! I was so sick, and not wishing to infect the entire town, I skipped the City Council meeting last night as well as the MLK Celebration, or you would see some of those pics on here today. If you look at past posts I have done you will see City Council, the GA Gift Shop, the Aveda Salon, Summer Bay, Morris Cove, Bunker Hill and my good Buddy Alexander. DC is dominating the headlines Right Now because it is going on Right Now. Once the season is over I have so many other post ideas it would blow your mind. Just be patient and wait for it!!



One Last Thing. The Comments back and forth got a little heated the past few days, From ALL SIDES. NOT COOL! Don't be hating!!! This is a Fun little blog that many seem to find interesting. I'm Glad they do. And By posting DC stuff I am able to attract a MUCH wider audience, and THEN introduce them to our delightful city. It seems to be working, lets give it a shot.



And Now, Alexander would like me to pass along the message that he will poop on the next person who is mean. (Or who Purposefully tries to get post #13) We all know who this applies too........



Peace, Love and Mountain Dew!!!

I love the blog and your sunset pictures are gorgeous, may I use one for my background here in my dark,stressful, hole in the wall office?

Dani said...

hey CB good to have you back, hope your feeling a little better!!
best to just move on from the what was going on and look forward to your future posts and pictures and just for the record i LOVE the sarcastic tone.

And i have heard that a bird pooping on you is good luck so who ever is #13 will be in for a treat lol

Carlisleboy said...

Kate, Feel Free to use Any of the pictures you want as backgrounds.
Just make sure to tell everyone it is an ALASKAN Sunrise, since many people seem to be under the impression that we live with 6 months of darkness or some such thing....
And Yes All, I am Feeling better, not 100% pure CB, But maybe 75%.

Sarcasm is necessary for life!

Just stick with what ya know CB, the DC/DH/Unalaska differences will soon be 2nd nature to you...and we'll all be smiling...We're glad you talk about DC, many of us are bored with it! Someone has to give the fans what they want, right??

You missed a nice event..I think Gigi got some pics, Alena wasn't able to attend either but her sis and the Unangan drummers/dancers were wonderful, and father Oleska was enthralling, I never sit still for 90 min and I did without even glancing at a clock.

Please don't make any other GA employees sick, we had that around here last week and I don't want any sick kids next week!!

I am glad that you are feeling better and am sorry the last few days have been so rough. Keep being yourself and posting as you have before I love it!

Aimee said...

Hi CB, I'm a lurker for your site (ok, I admit, I'm addicted to it), but I wanted to post to let you know that I enjoy and appreciate all you do, as I'm sure everyone else does as well. I am as far away from Dutch Harbour as one could possibly be (east coast of Canada), so it's neat to get your perspective. Keep up the awesome work!!

Jax said...

CB, so glad you are feeling better!
I am fairly new to the blog and was drawn here by your photos related to Deadliest Catch, but I love all the local stuff you post, especially the scenery and wildlife photos.
I spent 6 weeks in Bethel back in '89 and have loved everything Alaska since, it's why I got hooked on DC in the first place! Don't change a thing you are doing, it's all good!

Brain hope you are much better;
thanks for that link the other day on the different evacuation flights,how vital each one is.

Thanks too for addressing some unpleasant remarks.
In Colorado a while back a bumper sticker with "Don't Californiate Colorado" proliferated an unwelcoming message. Ick.. you are far from the first individual dealing with these issues.

love ya,


Donna

YAY!! CB is back! Just don't over do it, still need rest to get back to 100%!! Looking forward to teh next DC posts.

gbbarb said...

Hey, I haven't even tried to get #13 in several days. Hope you feel better and continue to enjoy your blogging as much as we enjoy reading it

Helen said...

CB,

Just be yourself and keep on keepin' on! Believe me, I know you can't please all the people all the time...

Thanks for the friendship, information, and pictures. All are greatly appreciated. =D

MaryC said...

CB - I'm so glad you are better. I love all the comments and the blog. Keep 'em coming. I look forward to laughing every day! I wonder....am I #13?

Hello Brian, Glad you are feeling better today Please forgive me if i seemed a little mean in my comment, it is that i really love this island you are a great friend and had not gone off about the DC it just there is so much more here to really apprecate. i am glad alot of your readers our learning more about this little slice of heaven. Keep up the good work. Love and peace my friend.

Maskerade said...

Glad to hear you are feeling a little better today. Hope you are all better soon.

As for all the ugliness, ignore it. If I stopped what I was doing everytime someone decided they didn't like it, I would be a statue by now.

purrduedvm said...

Glad you are feeling better. I didn't see that you made a mistake at all. And we all enjoy the tidbits and local flavor. Keep up the good work.

Kim said...

Sorry. I feel like a kid who just got spanked!

Ang said...

Hope you're feeling much better and up for brunch tomorrow. Get lots of rest and take care!

kate said...

Thanks CB!

Miss said...

Very good blog! Glad to see you are feeling better too! I appreciate everything you blog about..keep up the great work!!

Elizabeth Douglas said...

CB, glad you're feeling better! For what it's worth, ever since I started reading your blog, I've enjoyed every post, DC related or not...everything from landscapes and sunrises to the Wizard boys. ;)

Also..."Don't go changing, to try and please me,You never let me down before...I love you just the way you are!"

Bunnydeer said...

I've just started reading this blog and love it, I love the little insights on the area and the goingons. Keep up the great work!

Lori said...

CB - you're the best and I love all that you post. You're absolutely right - DC is "what is going on now", but it won't last and they'll be gone and then you'll be posting other "events" and interesting stories, not like you haven't already and continue to do that anyway. It will be interesting to see how many of us "stick with you" after DC. Oh, and not to make any waves or indicate any one person, but it appears that maybe some of your followers should have a blog of their own? JMO!
