Share Your Own Queen City Discovery

Last summer there was a wide gap in posting. This website kind of died for awhile. From August 2008 until now I've tried to keep posting new updates regularly. I am very grateful for the response, both positive and negative, that I've gotten from those who view and read this website. That being said; I'd like to extend the chance for the many readers of this site and for those who often email me, to contribute their own Queen City Discovery to this site.

Climbing to the Top of Mt. Hudepohl



/

The stars had aligned and surprisingly everyone in the usual crew was able to get together. SeicerZach, RJ and myself all made plans to meet up on a Thursday evening; one of the first nice, warm and sunny evenings of the spring. As the sun went down we piled into the borrowed 1996 Mazda MPV mini van until arriving at our destination. Like soldiers out of a Blackhawk helicopter in Somolia, we jumped out of the van and hit the pavement armed with our cameras as opposed to assault rifles. Cautiously walking with camera bags on our backs, tripods and flashlights in hand, we approached the target. Our mission had one goal: Reach the top of Mt. Hudepohl.

Streetcars, Bill Cunningham and a field trip to Over-The-Rhine.



/

This past Friday April 10, 2009 I was sitting at my desk listening to the "Bill Cunningham Show" on 700 WLW AM as I often do. I'm a fan of the show as well as many of the other programs on 700 WLW. I had never called into the show or spoken with Bill "Willie" Cunningham before, but the conversation I had with him on Friday would eventually lead to me winding up at the corner of 15th and Vine St. in the heart of Cincinnati's "Over-The-Rhine" neighborhood at the stroke of midnight.

URL Trouble

As many of you may have noticed, when you come to the url: www.queencitydisco.com, that URL stays in your address bar no matter what page on this site that you navigate to. Lately, I have found this quite frustrating. It makes it very hard for one of the fine viewers of this website to link to a specific page or article. I've been trying to figure it out, but have had no luck, but would anyone know how I could set it up to display: "www.queencitydisco.com/pagename" instead of just always "queencitydisco.com?" The actual URL of this website is www.mcflash.4000loavesanhour.com and queencitydisco.com is a domain name I own through godaddy. What I'd like to do is make it so I could display www.mcflash.4000loavesanhour.com/pagename as www.queencitydisco.com/pagename. Any help would greatly be appreciated and it would make this site so much easier to navigate. Any ideas? Feel free to comment below or send me an email at queencitydisco[at]gmail.com. Thanks for any help!

A Cold, Rainy Opening Day.

Yesterday it was 70 degrees and sunny. Today it was 38 degrees with rain, hail and the Reds losing their 2009 home opener to the New York Mets.
