Default Me too!!

I pledge to devote 5 hours this weekend for the same!

And this time I also pledge to ignore and not to get into fights with people who tell me "Don't advertise on my scrap book"

We need more pledges!!

Guys, here's my suggestion how to go about it:
Scrap all your friends in DC/MD/VA
Scrap all your friends' friends in DC/MD/VA
Scrap all your friends' friends' friends in DC/MD/VA

Then replace DC/MD/VA with other neighboring states and repeat

Lawmakers work in DC Tuesday to Thursday

I have been actively trying to promote IV through Orkut. I cant say the response has been very warm... though I am not disheartened as yet & will keep trying... I am still trying to stir the pot as much as I can, to spread the message & increase attendance at the rally....
GO IV!!!

Some of my friends in Orkut acknowledged and joined (very few) but most are pretentive.

I was happy to note that one of my closest friend on Orkut works for Cisco did the SJ Rally.

yes scrapping works, unfortunately from Seattle, getting people to come has become more challenging, but people living in D.C please see if there are more people who know/don't know or don't have time.. encourage them, spread the message in grocery stores, blogs, emails, speak up hand fliers, driving distance members, family and friends we need as much support. Go IV Go IV..
