Day 336

Paypal sent me some outtakes from the ad campaign photo shoot and said I could share them. I'm still not sure what the ads are actually going to look like or when they are going to start running, but the photos look pretty good. The Dalmatian looks a lot better than I do, but what can you expect. It's a young Dalmatian.

I got an e-mail from the National Geographic producers today saying they liked the footage I sent them yesterday and that they now had enough material to finish the show. Yay! I'm finally done. I'm not sure when the show is going to run, but keep an eye out for an episode of Unlikely Animal Friends featuring a story about a goat, a Great Dane and a three legged Golden Retriever.

What was I thinking when I told the furnace repairman that I wasn't in any hurry and it was OK if he didn't come out to the house until Wednesday? I was freezing today. A cold front blew through last night and this morning the temperature inside was just about the same as it was outside. I've lived down South long enough now that I don't deal well with the cold. I bundled up in sweaters most of the day, but I still didn't feel that I was getting much done. I'm going to get the furnace fixed tomorrow, but in Texas that doesn't prove much. There might still be a few days left this year where I need to turn the air conditioner on again.

I'm starting to get the hang of Facebook. It's really just like LinkedIn with lots of pictures. I joined Networked Blogs on Facebook this afternoon, because I've seen a lot of other bloggers do this. I'm not sure if the Networked Blogs widget will bring me more visitors or just slow down my load time even more. I guess we'll see soon enough.

Dalmatian of the Day

Watch of the Day


  1. hey, you also looked good in the photo, not only the dalmatian :) update us when the show is shown.

    by the way, i also joined network blogs but decided not to put the widget as it will just take up some space, instead through network blogs, I set up the settings that my posts will be automatically posted in facebook and twitter. but that's just me.

  2. I have been stubbornly avoiding the Facebook experience. Too many people I know telling the world what had for lunch and then posting pictures of the sandwich. Let us know how it works out for you. I also once vowed that I would never use email.

    And, you look fine in the picture.

  3. I don't think I'll get into the networked blogs thing. I might look you up on LinkedIn.

  4. wow nice looking guy with your dalmatian dog.
