Oh My! I Have Fallen In Love, Again!

Edit:  Our puppies new name is Corduroy (Thanks to Jessie for the suggestion).  He is officially named after the Teddy Bear in the hit kids book, Corduroy.

Before I get too far into this post, this is just a short and sweet (Oh, look what I have, nah nah nah boo boo) blog post.  We still haven’t figured out a good name, so please try to help us name this one if you don’t mind.  So this breed is a so called “Teddy Bear”,  he should grow to 8-12 pounds, and he is the most adorable puppy I have seen in years.

When my son pointed at him and said  let’s take this one home, I didn’t realize the eye that he had for wonderful dogs.  This is a Bishon Fris and Shih Tzu mix (Male), better known as a “Teddy Bear” or a “Designer” Puppy/Dog.  Since we have gotten him, we have absolutely adored him; the only real major road block is naming him.  So help us out.

Naming:  I like Dexter, after the Showtime series.  My wife like every generic name in the book, I have conceded to maybe Bear.  There has to be other names.  Look at his picture and let me know what you think!  (He is about 1.3 pounds).  Gizmo is totally out of the question.


Thanks in advance.

Life, Getting Back to Normal

While I was away this weekend one of my chairs (bosses) called me and asked me to take on “Extra” work for the next 6 weeks.  This was the same case 6 weeks ago and may be a big reason why I haven’t been blogging a lot.  Please bear with me though, I plan on kicking it into high gear in about 6 weeks.  I have several awesome things I have done down the path of JQuery, ASP.NET MVC, Grails (Groovy / Rails), and more that I would love to share.  Also some of my newer series will be coming out as we roll in the next couple weeks (newer series: tips for less experienced programmers).

Tip for Traveling

The airlines must have lobbied for Airport security to tighten down.  When I went to travel last week, through the airport, with my wife and 2 children, we realized that traveling without checking bags is now much more difficult.  When we were going there it seemed to take us 10 minutes to get through security because your liquids can no longer be packed away and your shoes can’t go in a bin.  Why does this matter?  (Note: Kids are 5 and 7).  Can you imagine keeping track of a laptop, 2 Nintendo DS’, 8 shoes, belts, liquids (in their own container), etc all singularly as you move through security.  The easier solution is to just pay the 15 dollars and check ONE bag.  We did this on the way back and it was much easier.
