Hi Debbie, you have a real knack for showing us how localism posts "show" our local expertise. Very nicely done.

I bet Fort Defiance's front door was a hard fortification to crack and slip inside for any enemy. Not just kids like to hear the history... new to the area real estate relocating property listing buyers... better stock the information shelves with what happens around the home now, years ago for the local community flavor. Tell me about your area, make me an expert or quickly feed me with eye candy and narrative for more than I did know before stopping into your marketing tent to happen. Gas them up with knowledge fuel. That is our job as local blogging cub reporters right Debbie Reynolds ?
