THE GREAT THEME REVEAL OF 2015! #AtoZChallenge #AtoZReveal

atoz-theme-reveal-2015 (1)This is my second A to Z Challenge experience and I’m getting excited about it! Even more fun to party at the Blogfest, as explained by Corinne Rodrigues  and Vidya Sury. Why don’t you join us? Find me at link #21. Clicking on the badge takes you to the April A t0 Z website.  It’s a social event, so please visit as many participants as you can, add comments and share on your various networks. Enjoy! 

Last year’s theme, Travel & Culture was fun to do, but complicated in the execution (multiple images, lots of research).
This time, I’m keeping it a bit simpler, but I hope you enjoy it, nonetheless. Would you like a hint? :D Continue reading

MY SLEEP STUDY EXPERIENCE

As I may have mentioned a time or two, chronic insomnia has plagued me for many years. Also well-known is the fact that I’m a dedicated night person whose creativity is at its peak when most “normal” people are fast asleep. This is not something I want to change per se, because I love the night. What needs to be fixed is the quality and duration of uninterrupted slumber. To paraphrase an old cliché, I’m tired of being tired, all the time! Rarely do I ever sleep more than two to three hours at a stretch without waking up. Going to bed early is a waste of time too, as that leaves me wide-eyed in the middle of the night. My doctor, convinced I have sleep apnea (I’m hoping not), has been nagging me for years to participate in a sleep study. Continue reading

FUTURE MUSINGS AT THE DEN

crowded houseMarch is busy season around here, offline. Families with kids are travelling en masse for spring break, while others, weary of winter, seek warmth and sunshine elsewhere. My little “doggie hotel” is full and there’s mud on the ground. Think labour intensive paw-wiping and lots of laundry! This doesn’t leave much time for other pursuits, but I’m determined to keep up the blogging end as much as possible, especially with April closing in fast! Here’s what’s coming up at The Den.

PUGGLE LYNYRD SKYNYRD – A DOG WITH A CAUSE

whats your name ed gellock

Meet Lynyrd Skynyrd, a cute little Puggle, belonging to Ed Gellock. He’s so cute in fact, that Ed captured his antics on camera and turned them into a book:

What’s Your Name? Life as a Rock ‘n’ Roll Dog.

Interesting title, don’t you think? Here’s the story behind it, straight from the author:

“My book is about our dog Lynyrd Skynyrd. Lynyrd is named after one of the most popular and successful Southern Rock Bands in history. I have always been a fan of Southern Rock and Lynyrd Skynyrd in particular. Our Lynyrd Skynyrd is part pug and part beagle which makes him a Puggle. It’s a book for kids or dog lovers, which tells the story of how Lynyrd joined our family and enriched our lives.”

Ed had another motive for writing this book; to benefit a good cause:

“Help Us Help Our 4-Legged Frynds“

Proceeds from the first 1000 book sales will be donated to animal charities.
