Parkman Triangle Pocket Park— Event Listing –for Sunday, October 3, 2010
I take things seriously, careful about what I post –recommend in this space. I had a ‘conversation’ with Contact person for Parkman Triangle Park –that was astounding. Big deal - small local event, any --most people delighted to get publicity –and for free. On my part: I was giving him a friendly ‘heads up’ -link –He: used serious energy –to be rude and hung up.
Therefore here’s one for you: give Serious Thought to whether you want to give money –show up at any future event of such a ‘neighbor.’ Don’t say you weren’t warned. Now that I know: I don’t believe I’ll be posting any of those events, he can be a whacko Alone.
