Trolling the neighborhood: Can you guess where the troll has been?

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on May 27th, 2014

Thorvald

By Joe Veyera

As many of you already know, the team at My Ballard has taken in a special new friend. After deciding to make Ballard his new home, the little troll that you may have seen at the Syttende Mai parade was nameless, but thanks to you, our newest resident is no longer a John Doe … or John Troll, for that matter.

Every week, Thorvald will be taking in the various sights of Ballard, but it will be up to you to figure out just where he’s been. While Thorvald spent most of his Memorial Day weekend relaxing, he also spent some time out getting to know his new neighborhood.

Can you tell where Thorvald was this weekend? Give us your guesses in the comments! We’ll reveal the answer at the end of the day on our Facebook page.

    ugh.

    I STILL can’t join the “new” forum, yet the site owners are way into this awesome troll idea? great.

    the forum needs new members, and it is ridiculous that I can’t re-join after years on the old forum.

    oh well, I guess its “all Gracie all the time” for the forums then….

    You possibly can certainly have a better rank online by only elevating the number of views. But it really doesnt turn up real for those who have countless views with no comments or ratings. To cope with this concern, you will find a couple companies out there who offer no less than a boost inside the degree of views. They have packages that handle expanding the volume of views and subscriptions, in conjunction with ratings and including comments. For those who buy YouTube views for a piece of an entire package, your videos rating will seem far more authentic.

This sect also believes that embryo donations are acceptable if they were created from another married couple. This is a standard treatment used for infertility and you should easily be able to find a doctor that is an expert at IVF in order to maximize the chance of success. Moreover there are other options like egg donor, sperm donors and surrogate mothers as well that can eradicate the problems of infertility. The success rate of using medicines to fix this ovulation problem is around 80%. Get more info at InfertilityCure.tk

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
