Looking for suggestions on social media monitoring / analytics books. .  Looking for something fairly introductory that will explain and discuss some of the basic metrics that may be important to PR, their advantages, drawbacks. Thanks in advance!

+Matt Kushin Will do. Although I'd love to explore "The Gorge" and lots of cool places out your way too. I studied forests as a conservation biologist for years there...but from space imagery ;).

Section Hiking  - 
 
Am wondering if anyone in the community is located near my area - Harpers Ferry, WV. I've got some free time this weekend and am looking to perhaps go out onto the trail and am wondering if the snow is still up there? I'd like to do some snowshoeing!

Thanks for the add! Am new to the Harpers Ferry area. Definitely not a through hiker, but want to get out on the trail since its here in my backyard. Any ideas on how to get hooked into the local community would be much appreciated!

Thanks so much! Our patio table glass broke during a windstorm. Frederick Glass was very helpful. Because the table got bent when it fell over, I was having a hard time getting an accurate measurement of the needed glass dimensions. The manager was very polite and sent someone to come measure the table at my house all the way in WV where we live. I'm very pleased with the new glass. Great pricing too! Beat competitors, and that included delivery cost!

Stopped by here at the recommendation of a friend. It was just what we were looking for. Very good food (I had the Memphis BBQ burrito) and the owner(?) was super friendly! If you're looking for great Mexican food that's fresh and very affordable in the Harpers Ferry / Brunswick area, this is the place.
