When running an Internet business, trust is one of the most valuable commodities a business has.  That’s why I was so surprised to discover that Teleflora seems to operate on what appears to be an unscrupulous business model.

For my wife’s parent’s big wedding anniversary she ordered this:



What they actually got was this:



Besides the fact that it only had a handful of the roses, the most ridiculous part is that the little white flowers they included rather than th...

Remember them. It’s about those great activities we’re all doing with the ones we love, today…and it’s about so much more.

Let’s be grateful…my dad would always put a paper plate with a hot dog and a beer at an empty place at the table on this day. When I was old enough to be curious, I asked why. He told me…and I never forgot.

Thank them this day, for all the other days.

Ben Willmore did LightroomCC: The Complete Guide about a month ago, and next he’ll be teaching PhotoshopCC.

Ben’s a great instructor, and this will be a three week course as well. It will be (if I can use LightroomCC as a guide), an hour to two hour lesson every day, which will repeat during the day and then the week’s lessons will repeat over the weekend. I think.

ANyway, the lessons will be free and if you purchase anytime access, you’ll get files and co...

One of my favorites…Morley Safer. Forty six seasons on 60 Minutes. He was due to retire and that was announced just last week.

He was born in Toronto…earned a Lifetime Achievement Emmy in 2009. He also collected 12 Emmy Awards, three Peabody Awards, two Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Awards, two George Polk Memorial Awards and the Paul White Award from the the Radio/Television News Directors Association.

It was one helluva career…he even caused change of the Army’s R...
wow,  so much love and understanding from all of you!

 I wanted to quote and answer each comment individually however I keep getting that message that my comments aren't "sucessful"  so..

I just loved those pictures of Angel and Dazza!  Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Starkers for sharing. how sweet and precious with those babies!  Toby was a cutie...I guess it's getting close to time to consider another fur baby to adopt.

I'm not giving up Nidhogg-123, &n...

Folds like a book, lighter than the weight requiring an FAA license (less than 250 grams)…your own paparazzi and faithful puppy.

This is truly cool…even the holes for air are too small to allow adult fingers to be hurt.

It hovers and follows or leads…you can play a sort of frisbee game with it…a $600 frisbee, that is.

Anyway, it’s here: http://gethover.com/

I watch the news all the time, especially the weather. Sometimes you just gotta laugh.  
So life just keeps happening,  while I was making other plans....

January a neighbor of mine passed away,  I wish she hadn't done that as her and I were getting comfortable in each other's company,  even laughing together..It seems like every single time I make a friend,  they die a year or two later...

February my beloved,  funny face fur baby died suddenly.  It was hell.

 Cocoa was a Yorky/Poodle/ Llasa Apso mix.  A Yorky face,  cu...

Sorry to relay this to you folks.

Apparently his body was discovered at his home in Minnesota early this morning.

He had to cancel a few shows recently…the latest because of the “flu”.

He sold more than 100 million records in his career, 7 Grammys…who’ll forget “Purple Rain” or “While my Guitar Gently Weeps” in 2004?

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, was married twice.

Anyway, sorry to be ...

Feeling sad today. My best buddy in the world, Spanky, died this morning at 6:30 AM. He apparently had a heart attack.
He was a good dog. I miss him already.
We were close. He loved me and showed it. Life will go on, but it'll never be the same......

Daylight Savings Time. What a hoax. When did all this nonsense start?

Ben Franklin invented it…as a half joke, and a dig at the French:

“Money would be saved, Franklin argued, if people rose with the sun and turned in earlier at night, replacing hours of expensive candle use with free morning daylight.” – National Geographic

But no one took it seriously…well, maybe some French folks, but apparently they didn’t lose any sleep over it.

So...

It's that time of the year again.  I've been to the track to get my passes etc. .... for the 37th time in a row.

Albert Park [Melbourne] is just 5 days away.  I'm posted at Turn 6 Left [Comms] and Terry's at 5.8 Right [Trackie]

And to think I was 26 years old at that first one I did in 1980 - when Alan Jones was World Champion.

Gone are the days of push-starting Senna [on my own] in Adelaide - I'll leave nudging 700 kilos of F1 to someone younger...
