TRIBAL COUNCEL

Ladies and Germs, I now present you with the nominations for the name of our virtual community. They are as follow, not in any particular order or degree of popularity.......



OK, now, three of these names where offered up by one kind soul, perhaps in jest, so that counts as one. So, I need to collect no less than nine votes. I will accept any vote from a regular, their "regularity" being determined by myself. After I have recorded the votes of those nine that offered up a name, I will determine the winner and announce it with the launch of the new community blog. I will provide the link to that blog when I have created it. Void where prohibited.

I want to thank all of you who embraced this idea, as well as those who did so with a tad touch of wit. I have no idea how well this new place will fare, since it adds an extra burden to those who already put so much of their hearts and souls into their own personal blogs, but I think it has great possibilities. Perhaps thinking of it as a place to make the mother of all comments might incline many to visit it often, since the usual comments are somewhat abbreviated due to the space alloted them. I do ask that you choose your favorite photo or graphic to include with each of your posts, since they will be somewhat like that of a newspaper column, so that those who visit us know us each by our faces and/or representative graphic as well as by our words. If the whole thing ends up falling flat on it's face, so be it, but I promise to give it my share of attention, and only ask that you give it your own. After all, it's YOUR town, might as well add your own unique signature.

(squeaking again - i will be so glad when i no longer have to squeak - it does hurt the vocal cords!!)

and i was thinking (yeah yeah i do it occasionally!) that it is probably too late to offer up another possible name?? 'Freedom's Possiblity'?? ok ok.. i will stick to the task at hand...

i rather like 'Reason's Refuge' but then thought sometimes we don't always sound all that 'reasonable' and i do like 'Freedom'(of course i do - i suggested it !!) BUT more because that is what blogging is to me .. a freedom to write what i think / feel and damn the consequences.. a nice change from my every day life of diplomacy...
'Freedom's Place' has a nice town sound to it...... and i guess i could vote for that one cause it wasn't entirely my own......

BUT still 'Possibility' has a ring to it...... anything is "Possible" here.......

so i guess my final vote .. after much angst and thought is........
P O S S I B I L I T Y

and yeah i will have a pic that can be used...... an image of who i wish i were maybe?? i will work on that one too... but i promise - The Michael - it will be a family rated one........(cheeky grin)

I like them all but Freedom's Place, I like the sound of that.

Lower Slobovia has a nice ring to it. Countries should never think of themselves too seriously.

I don't think I qualify as a "regular", but I'll cast a vote anyway. The one that struck a chord with me is "Reason's Refuge".

duh... guess since all Your comments have to be approved first that i can go ahead and give You my vote, if Ya want it. I really like the name Lyonesse and the story behind where it comes from. I think it would fit the new blog beautifully. Be well and have a great weekend Sir Michael.
Love & Light,

Well, I first vote for Lyonesse since I submitted it!! Second choice, Reason's Refuge ... which is also very cool.

Thanks for putting it up for a vote and organizing our fledgling country.

Peace & love to you, your fellow countryperson, JP

Blogging is a change from the every day life of diplomacy in many ways.
Here your pseudo self can cast uncorroborated aspersions upon defenseless dimwits and Presidents.
Huzzah. This will be like joining a gang...do we get to pick gang names?
