Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit – March 2014

“Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit!”

Three Hares sculpture, Dublin Ohio

February 2014

I wrote this yesterday February 28th.  There was  no February 29th this year.  I had to run out before I completed it.

No, there were no posts on ColumbusBestBlog.com in February…

None. Nada. Zip.

ColumbusBestBlog.com died and was reborn

ColumbusBestBlog.com actually ceased to exist for a short time in February 2014.  Kind of.  The card on file with Go-Daddy to pay for the renewal of the CBB.com domain was one I used at Target in November or December of 2013.  The card was replaced by a new safe card… a safer credit card.  A card that was not hacked along with millions more at Target between Black Friday and just before Christmas 2013.

I never thought to check GoDaddy.  The ColumbusBestBlog.com domain was set up to auto renew.  I got an email they could not charge to the card on file.

ColumbusBestBlog.com domain expired

ColumbusBestBlog.com was NOT immediately retrieved from domain name limbo either.  I waited a few days before contacting Go Daddy. Then I had trouble with Go Daddy.  Then I panicked.   Then I renewed the domain for lots of years which is odd when I can not make myself post on ColumbusBestBlog.com.

There were changes at ColumbusBestBlog.com’s host (not Go Daddy) as well that took it offline for a couple of days… The host moved it to a different server. It was not seamless.  I believe that was in January. Or maybe that was in December.

Columbus Weather

It’s amazing with the weather we’ve had this year that I have NOT been posting  Columbus news, weather & sports on ColumbusBestBlog.com this year. I took a photo or two of snow rollers in  January but I never posted them anywhere.

I thought about writing a Ground Hogs Day 2014 post… Ground Hog’s Day is weather.  I did not write a 2014 Ground Hogs Day post though.  In case you missed it Punxatawny Phil said 6 more weeks of winter on February 2, 2014.  Ohio’s weather rodent, Buckeye Chuck did not see his shadow so his forecast was an early spring.  The non ground hog weather forecasters in Columbus  are calling for 6 inches or more of snow for us starting late tonight March 1 or early tomorrow morning into Monday morning March 3.

Spring will arrive on March 20, 2014 officially.

The photo of the sculpture at Ballantrae was taken in March, I believe… a number of years ago.   There were leaves on the trees.

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit

“Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit”  was the first thing said on ColumbusBestBlog.com this month.  It’s a tradition.  Or  a superstition …or something. “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit”

“Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” January 2014

by Maureen McCabe on January 24, 2014

“Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit”  was said much earlier this month… verbally.  Perhaps I said it shortly after midnight on January 1, 2014.  Or the next morning anyway.

The 24th of the month is a record breaking “LATE” for ColumbusBestBlog.com to say “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” for the month.   No excuses. No explanation.

Saying “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” is a tradition, or a superstition… or something. “Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” was the only thing said in October and December 2013.

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit – December 2013

December 1, 2013

saying “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” is a habit ColumbusBestBlog.com has, monthly.  It’s for good luck.  It’s a superstition that saying “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” first thing each month brought good luck.   Or maybe kept bad luck away.

Just Say NO to TEDx Columbus

November 27, 2013

  I could never say no to going to TEDx Columbus. I’ve been to each and every TEDx Columbus… all five events.  What if  TEDx Columbus presenters said “no”? Or “Thanks, but no thanks” Or “Not for free.” Or “I won’t talk at TEDx  for free.” Or “farewell, TEDx, I won’t be speaking at your […]

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit – November 2013

November 1, 2013

“Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” was the first thing said on ColumbusBestBlog.com this month.  It’s tradition.  Or superstition.  …or something. “Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” was the only thing said on ColumbusBestBlog.com in October 2013.  No post about  Experience Columbus Days. No Columbus Italian Festival post.  No Columbus Day 2013. No Halloween. No real estate posts  No things to […]
