I was at lunch with a friend the other day, telling her how much I admire her blog, and how even my mom enjoys her blog. We got into the discussion how she can't believe I check her blog that often, to know when she puts a new post up! Ok, friends, there are some of you out there that have been blogging a long time, and some of you that are new to the community, like me. This next piece of information will come to you either as old news, or the best news you have had all year! The brains at Google have thought of it all! Instead of having to check every ones blog everyday for updates, you can install Google Reader. Every time a website is updated, Google Reader tells you. It is really great, and I don't know how I lived without it! If you have any questions about it, let me know!
Speaking of Google, super sweet story, (if you have time to read, otherwise... not that important!):
Joel manages the office building that Google rents. He says that it is so sweet! They have a super awesome setup for their employees, and if this property management gig doesn't work out, he says, he will go work at Google for free! Anyway, Michigan has recently tried to help the economy, and is giving a HUGE tax break, (the biggest in the US) for anyone who makes movies in our state. So there has been a lot of movie producers, and directors, checking out the state. Last week, Drew Berrymore was here, and was looking for a space to house her production company. Joel's company is the largest Property Management Company in Ann Arbor, and Ann Arbor is the most liberal, tree huggin, funkiest town around, (P.S. I LOVE ANN ARBOR!), of course a star like Drew Berrymore would check out Ann Arbor! So the CEO of Joel's company was showing her around. She wanted the BIGGEST openest space they had. They have a space right downtown, near the BIG HOUSE, that sounded perfect. The reason she needed the biggest space around was because she has a "Portable" track that she has to have inside the space. Apparently, this portable track has been custom made for her, and lives where ever she lives. She saw the space, loved the space. The track would fit in the space, but... the space wasn't big enough to get the track in. So, Drew will not be living in Ann Arbor! Maybe Detroit? Birmingham? Bloomfield Hills? Who knows! Be on the look out!
