Still of Puppies on Halloween

I found this live streaming video of puppies in a box that is too cute for words.  We had a tragedy in the family this week and I don’t really want to discuss it, but feel that I just want to watch cute puppies and kittens instead.  I thought that everyone else might get a little pick-me-up from the video.


Voting in Swainsboro

Yesterday was election day.  Holly and I went in to vote around 2 pm.  There was absolutely no line.  I thought it was important for Holly to see the American electoral process in action.  I am not going to tell you who I voted for, but let’s just say that my side didn’t win in every political race.  i was very surprised that no even questioned my having Holly at the voting terminal with me, but I guess that is small town American South for you.  They actually at first thought she was there to vote.

Here are the election resultes from Swainsboro, Georgia as printed in the local paper, The Forest Blade .

Dr Pepper Sweetens Pot For ‘Chinese Democracy’
March 26, 2008 , 11:30 AM ET       Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Many have tried, but so far nobody has been able to pry the decade-in-the-works Guns N’ Roses album “Chinese Democracy” from the hands of lone remaining original member Axl Rose.
Now, Dr Pepper thinks it’s up to the challenge. The soft drink company says it will give a free can of Dr Pepper to “everyone in America” (excluding ex-GNR members Slash and Buckethead) if “Chinese Democracy” arrives anytime during the calendar year 2008.

“It took a little patience to perfect Dr Pepper’s special mix of 23 ingredients, which our fans have come to know and love,” Dr Pepper director of marketing Jaxie Alt says. “So we completely understand and empathize with Axl’s quest for perfection — for something more than the average album. We know once it’s released, people will refer to it as ‘Dr Pepper for the ears’ because it will be such a refreshing blend of rich, bold sounds – an instant classic.”

Dr Pepper has also launched a blog in conjunction with its offer. GNR’s label, Interscope, was unavailable for comment at deadline.    “Chinese Democracy” was most recently scheduled for release on March 6, 2007, but promptly vanished from the schedule without a new date being set. It will be the first Guns N’ Roses album since the 1993 covers collection “The Spaghetti Incident”; in the ensuing decade, the group has burned through a reported $13 million in recording expenses.

Dr Pepper is ready to give out free soda coupons to every American when the album is finally released on Nov. 23, 2008. If you’re out to get a free Dr Pepper just follow these simple steps:

Coupons will be available for 24 hours, starting at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on Nov. 23, 2008. Allow 4-6 weeks for coupon to arrive. Coupons will expire on Feb. 28, 2009. Limit one coupon per person. Full terms and conditions available at www.drpepper.com

3. When your coupon arrives, redeem it wherever Dr Pepper is sold.

I have watched this a few times and have tried to figure out if this really very very clever or do these people have too much time on their hands.   This is the actual description of this performance —

Dance Umbrella 2008
Transports Exceptionnels, by French choreographer Dominique Boivin, is a tender love duet for dancer and mechanical digger. Accompanied by the dramatic voice of Maria Callas, this meeting between iron and flesh is a witty interpretation of the pas de deux dance tradition. Playful yet rugged, Transports Exceptionnels is an unexpected moment of grace between fragile man and indestructible machine
