Today I tried something new. I tried Dark Chocolate Almond Milk by Silk. It was ok. But I'm not sure I would by it again. Mom bought it for me, so I kind of have to drink it.

I think it may be the almond after taste that I don't quite like.

Mark and I went to a local dog show this weekend. It was pretty cool, but it was also rainy, so there wasn't a big turn out.

Today was a really nice day, so I decided to take Peanut to the dog park. We haven't been in a while, but he seemed to have a good time. I think he gets along better with small dogs, than dogs that are bigger than him.

The picture was taken after we came home from the dog park.

The radio station I work at has an Israeli music program, and the host is a really nice woman. She went to Israel, and brought me back a bracelet for good luck.

I went up to see my best friend this weekend and she was cleaning out her closet.  I was able to snag some Hand-Me-Overs before she donated them.  Which was totally awesome. 

I call them Hand-Me-Overs because they aren't exactly Hand-Me-Downs.  I'm not younger or smaller.  We are roughly the same size and age.  So what did I snag? From left to right: Zebra Print Top, Two pairs of jeans, dark pants with a leopard print, a dress, pink t-shirt, grey t-shirt, and pink pajama pants with little skully-heads on them. 

I love!!

I just got done reading Death's Excellent Vacation, and it was pretty good.  The first short story in the book is one that includes Miss Sookie Stackhouse, written by Charlaine Harris.  And she didn't disappoint, but it did leave me wanting to read more about Sookie.

There was one short story in the book I completely skipped over, which was The Perils of Effrijim.  I couldn't get into it.  I tried to stick it out, but really felt it wasn't quite the right kind of fit for this collection of paranormal short stories.  Some of the stories are pretty interesting and quite funny.  There is even a story about leprechauns, which I felt ended a little abruptly, but was still quite enjoyable.

I don't know if I will keep this book in my collection, mostly because I don't think I will re-read this.  Or want to re-read it.  It was fun, but I would like to share that fun.  So therefore this Friday I'm dropping off a stack of books at my local library.  I always feel really good about dropping off books to be donated there.

Let's all take a minute to have a moment of silence for those who lost friends and family on this day.

Budweiser only air this commercial once, to acknowledge this event in what is now American History.  It's really touching I think.

And just really quick, 9/11 isn't just about New York and the World Trade Centers.  Don't forget about the Pentagon, and the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania, as well.  While New York had the largest loss of life, I feel that the other two planes that were hijacked sometimes get overshadowed by the others in New York.   Remember them all, is what I am trying to say here.

2010-09-06-13-09-13-023Now that it is after Labor Day, summer is over and the days will be getting cooler.  I don’t mind Fall, I just don’t much care for the cold.  Fall can be quite fun with Halloween, and leaves falling.  After that, it gets cold, and then winter sets in.

Ah well, you can’t stop the change of the seasons.

Earlier this week I caught a documentary on Animal Planet that got me a little concerned.  It's called The Cove, and it's about dolphin hunting in Japan.  The footage was disturbing, but the news of how many dolphins that are killed for their meat was astounding.  Even more so once I learned that dolphin meat contains toxic amounts of Mercury and is often sold as whale meat in Japanese fish markets.  And then the people are eating it, not knowing what is happening and what it is they are eating. 

I remember though that back in 2007 Hayden Panettiere was arrested in Tiji, Japan (where this takes place) for protesting this.  The dolphins are hearded into a cove, where the babies are seperated from their moms to be sold to places like Sea World, and attractions where you can swim with dolphins.  The remaining dolphins are then killed for their meat, and it's estimated that from Sept-Nov over 20,000 dolphins are killed. 

Now I get that the fisherman in this small town know nothing more, than this dolphin hunt.  But you would think that by 2010 we (as in the human race) would have helped them come up with alternatives to hunting dolphins.  Hopefully some resolution will come from this documentary airing. 

This documentary is put together very well, and I think you should take a look at it.  Watch it for yourself, and then decide what you want to do.

I have mentioned before that I have an Android phone.  It’s pretty cool, and can do a lot of stuff.  I usually have music on my phone, and I was thinking it would be cool to sync music from itunes to my phone.  Well I did a little search and came across iSyncr Lite (free app) and it let’s you select a playlist from itunes to sync with your phone. 

It was really easy to use, except it won’t let you sync music files that are protected by DRM.  Before I used to use itunes all the time, and then I discovered Amazon MP3 which doesn’t put any kind of limitations on the songs you download. 

Here is a link to info about iSyncr Lite, so that you can check it out for yourself.  The Lite version lets you sync 20 songs at a time, but I’m sure the paid version lets you do more.
