Thanks and the Future

Hi Everybody. I have a few things to talk about so I’ll cover them in order. First, thanks to all my friends and family that donated financially and/or encouraged my effort at Plungapaloza ’09 for the Maryland Special Olympics. Together we raised $600 and helped to enhance some lives. You can see my pictures and […]

Things Are Happening

It’s been a busy few weeks. I guess the best place to start is with Inara. Our little shnoodle is now happily walking on a leash. Peg got her a little back pack to wear while out for walks. We put in treats and a little weight so she can feel it there. And as […]

Inara's First Birthday!

Well yesterday we celebrated Inara’s first birthday! The really cool thing is that she’s now walking on a leash and enjoying it to some degree. We were able to walk with her on a leash up to Bark! and do a little shopping there. Peg got her a little biscuit cupcake to celebrate with. Peg […]

2008 Stuff

Another year arrives! So this is the typical ‘what to do with the year’ letter. I’ve been giving this some thought and here’s what I’m thinking, in no particular order with the exception of the first item. I want to continue to grow the fantastic relationship that I have with Peg. She and I are […]

Gone to the Dogs

Well tonight we got word that we will be getting a dog, a ten month old puppy to be exact (sorry Mom she’ll be around a while 🙂 ). It’s a schnoodle, a combination of a schnauzer and a poodle. This is one of the puppies that came out of the recent Virginia puppy mill […]

Rebel Rebel

As you may remember I told Peg that it was okay if she got another dog. After the false start with Pet Rescue of Maryland she decided to go the foster route for now. So about a week and a half ago we were interviewed at home and approved to be fosters by the Montgomery […]

Software Freedom Day Summary

What a great day it turned out to be, weather wise and event wise. At the Howard County Library the Ubuntu Maryland Local Community Team held an install fest. With a strong turnout by our members and the public we had a real successful day. We started out the morning getting set up. I was […]

I let the dog in (woof, woof, woof, woof)

Well I finally did it. I gave Peg the birthday gift that can never be toped, even by another ‘Easy Button’. I gave her a (small) dog collar, as a symbol that I’m okay with her getting another dog. Of course it was a purple one, as I knew that would be the icing on […]


Well I’m down here near Orlando, FL visiting with Peg’s sister and family. Their daughter is graduating high school and Peg has been looking for a good excuse to visit. Works out like peanut butter and jelly I guess! Anyway this is the first time I’ve met this part of the family and they’re all […]

Happy Mothers Day!
