There, fixed that for you

Dogs and politics always make strange interesting bedfellows.  One has only to check out Dogs Against Romney and read about the Seamus saga to know that, or to witness the swift death of Michael Vick’s career to know that being cruel to a dog is  a great way to kill your public persona in the minds of the American public.

Free to a good home

Every so often as I’m browsing the job postings on Craig’s List I’ll pop over to the Free section and see just what little gems people are giving away.  Sometimes people actually give away really good stuff.  We got our wheelchair that way when Geoff was hurt and needed one.

Most of the time people post “Free Fill” or “Free Couch!!!!”  Then there are posts like these.  These are the interesting ones.

We met The Bloggess

Ok, so this post is a week late.  That does not in any way diminish the awesomeness that is Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess.  The link to her blog is in our blog roll to your right.  If you haven’t read her stuff I recommend that you click through.  I will, however, warn you.  She’s not for the easily offended, she’s fond of four letter words, and she’s from Texas.

I guess we’re continuing with the theme

I was reading an article on Boston.com about a rather inspired prank pulled by the graduating class at a local high school when this link at the bottom of the article caught my eye.  It was one of those, “if you’re reading this article then you’ll like this one too!” type of things.

April 1st is here again

So far today we’ve seen some pretty inventive April Fools Jokes from corporate America.  The first to cross my virtual desk was this one from “Warby Barker.”  It’s a very well done prank by Warby Parker, an online glasses retailer with a social awareness bent.

Nice to be back in the 21st century

So we have done it.  As of yesterday, we have a new ISP and thus a faster, more reliable Internet connection.  I had to make some minor adjustments to the home network, but generally speaking it all seems to be a dramatic improvement so far.  I can’t believe how much faster this is, after fighting with the crappy DSL for so long.  And this isn’t even close to being the highest available cable speed.

Anyway, we will be ending our old Internet service later today.  So please do not continue to use my old Verizon e-mail address.  It will be gone soon.   For now just use my gmail address.

Porcupines do not throw their quills, and Kevin Smith owes us residuals

One interesting feature of WordPress is that is shows us how people find our site, either through links or search terms.  And for some reason, certain search terms steer people to our blog more often than others.  I have no idea why.  One of these searches involves porcupine quills, and the other involves Kevin Smith and his dachshund, Schecky.  I have no idea what the porcupine thing is about, unless it is one of Kelly’s Etsy or Regretsy things.  But the Kevin Smith thing I know about.   Seriously, we have become a subsidiary of Kevin Smith’s publicist or something with all the searches that lead here.  It’s cool though, because we like him, and we like dachshunds, and we like his dachshund.   So he gets some free publicity from us, and in a certain way we get some free publicity from him.  It’s all good.
