Santa Has Arrived!

Well, I'm not so sure it was because I was a good boy or not this year but Santa delivered a new set of coffee digs for me. The picture shows a La Spaziale Vivaldi S1/VII Espresso machine and a Macap M4 grinder. I am now in espresso heaven. I am also way over cafineated, having had several as I tune up the grinder and the machine. Happy holidays!

The Lights Are On!

One of the things I always look forward to at Christmas is the luminaries. That was a pretty new thing to me when Karen and I first moved down to Raleigh from up north. Somehow the dark snowless backgrounds make the lights stand out even more. I think they would lose something in the snow. Tonight was our neigbourhood light-up. Here's one looking down the road to Julie and Howard's place.

Big Things In A Small Package

Karen and I had the deluxe pleasure of covering the DKC Rally and Obedience trials last weekend. We had alot of fun even with the long days and late evenings. Some great obedience and rally runs - here is one of my favourites. A very enthusiastic Daschund.

Rocking On!

Well, I am back in Cayman Brac again. Finally getting around to doing a little rock raking. If you haven't done it yet it is a very religious experience - sort of. These rocks are the ones that came up on our beach during Ivan. That's how far behind I am on my raking. Anyways if you are ever up for a little R&R for you mind and spirit - we have plenty of rocks a rake and a shovel!

Christmas - What A Wonderful Time Of Year!

On my way to Cayman Brac today. Had a long layover in the Miami airport. It was made considerably more pleasant by a local school choir doing some caroling in the airport lobby. I do love Christmas!

Would You Like To Live Forever

Well, maybe not forever but at least a hundred years or so. These guys do. The Galapagos Tortoise. Not too much stress - just lay around and eat grass all day. Don't think Karen would let me do that:-)

A Keeshond MACH!

Oh do I love a nice cool sunny weekend at the trials. Had some terrific weather at the Agility Club of Chatham trials last weekend. Also saw some stellar runs including a MACH run by this great looking Keeshond.
