To all of you who wished me a Happy Birthday…Thank you! I really felt a bit like Jimmy Stewart at the end of “It’s a Wonderful Life!”All I was missing were ZuZu’s petals! It was a very warm and fuzzy feeling having so many nice thoughts sent to me by so many nice people.
This is going to be an exciting week as I make my Celebrity Jeopardy appearance on Thurs. 18th. Feb. I play against David Duchovny and Chris Matthews and I can promise you a tense and exciting game that goes all the way down to the wire! I’m afraid it is only available in the US, but, who knows, these things have a habit of popping up on the web sooner or later.
We are also getting close to launching our new online video business: StyleMouse
We hope to launch it onto the unsuspecting public on Friday March 5th. You will be able to watch and “click on” our first interactive videos. We start off with a series on the vibrant and exciting shopping mecca , Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA. For the first time you can watch a video and, if you like something you see, you can “click” your mouse on it and either get info or purchase it right there and then!!! Pretty cool stuff!
The Canadian part of my Shaughnessy blood is very proud this week. They are putting on an excellent Games despite an extremely uncooperative Mother Nature. It has become must-see late night TV in my house.
Finally, I want to let you know about a contest, (well, not really a contest,) we want to run. People have asked me about the significance of the photo in the title of this blog. It is a photo I took some years ago and just seemed appropriate for the title: Only Connect. What we want is for you to send your photos that say the same thing to you. Only Connect. It is open to all kinds of interpretation and creativity, so go for it!
Send your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to include the City and Country you are from or the City and State if you are in the US. If you have a Facebook page and/or Twitter page, please send a link to those as well when you send in your photos so we can ‘tag’ you and link to you if we post your photos. (unless you want to remain anonymous, then please tell us!!) Please only submit photos that you personally take . . do not submit anyone else’s photos.
From time to time I will put my favorites up on the blog. Sound good?
OK, that’s all for now. We’ll talk again soon.
Only connect, my friends!
