I came to Daily Kos by reading over someone’s shoulder. I lurked for a long time until I wandered into a diary called Cheers and Jeers. I decided then that I needed to create an account. I loved to watch the madcap antics of tnichlsn, Texas Blue Dot and Phil N Deblanc; it reminded me of my own naughty 3 brothers. It wasn’t long before a whole cast of characters, full of witty banter, had grown up around me. Now I can look at pictures of pooties and grandchildren with wild abandon and full recognition.  I wake up every morning eager to see y’alls faces. I have an encyclopedic knowledge of all of your triumphs and tribulations because of one person: Bill in Portland Maine. So this, my very first diary, is about Bill in Portland Maine. More importantly, it is a fundraiser. You see, I like my snark fresh. Daily. And the thought of Bill not being there to bless the camels for my birthday or to welcome a newbie to the pool is just downright... scary. Ghoulish. So I thought I would fashion a love letter, a thank you note. But  enough about me...

"A pet dog has become an internet sensation after its owner posted a series of pictures of it online dressed as Superman.
The pictures of five-year-old husky Ice in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province disguised as the caped crusader have garnered rave reviews from delighted fans.
One viewer even reported laughing so much he fell out of his chair.
In the pictures, Ice is seen posing in her outfit as well as running through a park, her cape streaming behind her."

Come on...I know I have left something out.
A UFO image snapped over Chelsea, New York, which created a storm in the USA. New Yorkers were transfixed by shiny unidentified flying objects spotted over Chelsea. Hundreds of Big Apple residents craned their necks to see the objects, which were described as looking like dozen silver white balloons [perhaps that's just what they were?]. Witnesses flooded the NYPD and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with calls reporting sightings

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
