What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

From a reader!! Thanks for the humor!

This article was written by Susan Elzy of The Danville Register & Bee, last year. A reader who really loved it sent it in. It is NOT making fun of Danville, it is celebrating the quirks and personality of a small town that so many people love. If this upsets you, you haven't read the Register and Bee much...or this blog much.

You know you're from Danville when...

- You have driven for nearly 15 minutes, have made a series of left and right turns and are still on Main Street.

- You've been asked by the last three people you met where you go to church.

- When you drive to South Boston to get an elegant dinner.

-You think Shag dancing should be the national sport.

-You go to Myrtle Beach in August to get away from town and meet the rest of the city there!

-You are merging impaired.

-You're still not sure what The Institute does!

-You think eating out is a form of recreation.

-You think Mount Hermon is one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

-The sun shining off the car roofs at Wal-Mart blinds you as you cruise in.

-There's an herb shop named "Bubba's"

-You open conversations with, "Hey, How Y'all been doing?"

-You think a Target store is going to save the town.

- You know it's there, but you've never toured the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History.

-When the Taco Bell closes before midnight.

-When people bring their 3-year old with them to Buffalo Wild Wings on a Saturday night.

-When a diner conversation can continue for 30 minutes debating where the best biscuits are found.

-The Smurf Bridge (once blue) is now painted black, but still called the Smurf Bridge.

-When no matter where you turn, you're only a stone's throw from water, historic buildings or victorian homes.

-You give, "used to be" directions to people: "turn at what used to be the King of the Sea," or down by what used to be the boat dock, and turn on the street by the place that used to be Wimpy's. If you remember all of those you really are a Danvillian!

-A night out with the wife is a trip to Lowe's and an ice cream cone at Bubba's (Not the herb shop).

-You choose to shop at Wal-Mart on Wednesday nights when everyone else is at church.

-Rush hour is from 5 to 5:15 on Piney Forest Road.
