Balls of Fury: Update

We've learned that the Charlotte Tennis Academy received the litter complaint and will have a landscaping crew clean it up by the end of the month.  Unaware of the extent of tennis ball debris, they are looking for ways to work with the public to keep the area clear.  This is a great opportunity for a Boy/Girl Scout group and/or the Huntingtowne Farms and Spring Valley neighborhoods to come together for an ongoing project.

Well done, CTA.  We thank you for taking the appropriate steps to keep your corner of Charlotte beautiful.

WTF, Facebook?

Notice anything different?

Our Facebook badge is missing because Facebook decided to shut our page down, citing a "code of ethics violation".

Yeah, we didn't get it either and can think of two reasons for this to happen:
  1. Our "I am an Urban Homesteader" icon
  2. Facebook stated their pages must represent "individuals" and cannot use it to promote a business.  Now, we're definitely not a business, but if Facebook wants pages to be for individual people, why the hell do they have the option of creating pages for businesses, organizations and various groups?  If Charlie Sheen's Tiger Blood Energy Drink can have a page, why can't we?
