>What is a blog?

>Since so many people keep asking me:

What’s a blog?
A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.
Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules.

In simple terms, a blog is a web site, where you write stuff on an ongoing basis. New stuff shows up at the top, so your visitors can read what’s new. Then they comment on it or link to it or email you. Or not.

Since Blogger was launched, almost five years ago, blogs have reshaped the web, impacted politics, shaken up journalism, and enabled millions of people to have a voice and connect with others. (

>Jeffery Terreson :Red at C Magor Gallery

Terreson JeffreyMay 18-June 7
Jeffrey Terreson was born in Bronxville, New York and raised in Bedford, New York. Terreson had the pleasure of knowing what he was going to do at an early age. From his kindergarten report card, noting an early aptitude for art, through his secondary schooling, Terreson excelled at art. He earned a four-year Merit Scholarship to Colombus College of Art and Design, where he rose to the top of his classes and found inspiration in his teachers and mentors: Ron Tardino, Robert Bruss, and Dennis Drummond.Upon Graduation, Terreson returned to New York City to begin a career as an artist. For years, Terreson painted and supported himself through illustration and design, with artwork published by such nationally recognized periodicals as Time Magazine and News Week.After a great deal of success in the New York art scene, Terreson decided it was time to raise his four children and take his art in a new direction. He currently works in a Neo-Impressionistic painting style that embraces digital and traditional media. Terreson continues to steadily produce pieces, based on his original roots as a painter, while exploring and integrating elements of mixed media.

Ridgewood to Start Revaluation The Village of Ridgewood has recently been ordered by the Bergen County Board of Taxation to perform a revaluation for the year 2008. The process will start with the selection of a qualified revaluation company to work with the Division of Assessments. It is anticipated that the property inspections will begin in the fall of 2006. Residents will be notified in writing when the inspections start. Revaluations are required periodically to ensure the equitable distribution of the tax burden. The Village does not gain any additional revenues because of the revaluation. Ridgewood’s last revaluation was conducted in 2001.
