Quick web check help needed please (please)

If you don’t mind, can you take a quick look at http://www.notyetrain.org and just let me know whether everything is readable? And if it’s not, if there are any particular bits that are hard to read and why?

(Yes, it’s Flash. It’s a film site and we were working with an agency. I could say lots more, but really… I just need feedback on the basics.)

Benefit concert at the ArtsCenter Dec. 6!

Help support women’s reproductive health and rights (while seeing a great concert) by attending the Rock for Reproductive Rights at the Carrboro ArtsCenter on Saturday, Dec. 6.

Ipas, a Chapel Hill-based non-profit organization that works for women’s reproductive rights and health issues around the world, will host the fifth annual Rock for Reproductive Rights benefit concert, featuring Caitlin Cary and the Savoy Doucet Cajun Band, featuring Michael Doucet, the Grammy award-winning lead singer and fiddler from Beausoleil, and Ann and Marc Savoy, both well-known musicians hailing from Louisiana .

You can support Ipas by sponsoring the concert with a tax deductible contribution. Concert sponsors who donate $50 or more will receive two complimentary tickets to the concert. Ipas appreciates your support. Click here to make a donation.

Tickets can be purchased by calling the ArtsCenter at (919)929-2787 or online at the ArtsCenter website .

(In the spirit of full disclosure, I work for Ipas… and also think this is going to be a great show for a great cause!  Time for change!)



I heard Dan Wieden of Wieden+Kennedy speak the other night at the UNC J-School. Interesting talk about keeping things fresh and real and creative and whatnot (they do both Nike & Target ads, so they have quite a bit of credibility on those scores in my book), but the best part was when he played an ad for Honda that their UK office created.

Weekend in review

Friday morning I went with a crown (ok, a smallish crowd) of folks from work to raise walls on the Habitat for Humanity house that Nortel is sponsoring. This was, much to my great surprise, fun (tho it was a bit on the warm side and I “glowed” more than I’m accustomed to). I have pictures, which will get posted soon, I hope (don’t you love the way I phrased that “which will get posted soon,” as if *I* am not the one who needs to get off her rear and post them. I was more competent at the nailing thing than I’d thought I’d be, and was thwoping the big (that’d be $.16 to use the technical term) nails in seven thwacks or fewer. Yah me! That being said, Steve could do it in three, so I’m not sure I’ve got a lot to brag on.

Friday night, I met up with Heather and Liz for some shopping action (at Total Wine — who thought up that name?!), then dinner at the Angus Barn. Mmmmmmmmm….beef! I’d not eaten there since my birthday (September, for anyone keeping track) and had not had dinner with Liz and Heather in eons either (though Heather was co-host of the girl’s fondue thing, and Liz was there), so that was thoroughly enjoyable.

Saturday, oh Saturday, Jeff and I took the bike to Winston and ordered my MINI!! More on that later (do I always say that?), but for now I need help with the critical decision of chrome mirrors (another view) or white mirrors.

I did end up opting for the chrome bumper inserts, much to my surprise.

What color mirror covers should Gina get on her MINI?
Chrome (adv.: shiny, bugs not as obvious, matches bumper inserts)
White (adv: cheaper, matches roof)
