    Default The Owl Avatar is back!

    I am so pleased to see the 411 tour guide owl back as Gus's photo

    I love the owl, it reminds me of the 101 things to do in Miami, and also when you told RihanJ off one time and Carlos said it looked like the owl was telling him off with it's finger raised at him.

    It wasn't the same without the owl.

    Hoot, Hoot, Hooray! Yes, Tour Guide Owl is back, for now.

    I got Atiosis working on a special avatar for you!

    Graffiti girl, Jess, is cool, but perhaps we can make something more... pink.

    I'm really happy when members add an avatar, because it shows up when I add a link on our Facebook fan page. See the familiar faces - Miami Beach 411 | Facebook

    He's working on one for you... and it has nothing to do with an owl.

    Thanks, Doug. You don't need a new avatar because yours looks great! Although, the profile shot of you in the hat was cool, too.

    Please add an avatar, everybody!

    Default Another reason to add an avatar...

    I forgot to mention, member avatars will soon be displaying on the Miami Beach 411 home page in the "See What Everyone Is Talking About" section.

    What's the story behind the owl ?

    I changed my avatar momentarily as I'm in championship mode.

    There's not much of a story. Back in 2005, when we added the forum, I needed to have an avatar so I grabbed an owl from a stock photo website. Later on, when I wrote my "101 fun attractions" list, Atioisis crated a bunch of new owls for me.

    Thanks for updating your avatar. I think it's cool when members change their avatar, depending on their mood.

    Chunche is also experiencing a mood swing and has already been spotted in the neighborhood with his Laker Jersey.

    So I looked at the FB page, how come some threads show up on the wall and others do not? And why are there links to some articles and not others (mine)? Is there something to do on the page? I'm confused.

    Just reminding Gus, I get my own pink avatar soon... Although I do love Little Miss Sunshine. She's chillin on SoBe with a cocktail which is pretty much what I do daily

    Google is sleeping right now! But I think I can do that one for myself...

    I told you I would wake up this morning and start posting!

    Ages ago in 2010. I just pulled up the old thread after a conversation I'd had with Gus the night before.
