Ah-Ha! I've finally managed to film and edit two snippets of Cosmos that is long enough for you to recognize a running dog...he doesn't follow directions, and is much more interested in grabbing my gloves.

Poor neglected blog. Way too many things have been happening, culminating with the death of my PC, but I'll make a quick synopsis of the last 6 weeks, and try to get back on schedule.
Cosmos update - he's PERFECT! I'll post a video when I get him running in the right direction.
Travels - Milpitas was uneventful except for dinner with Rob and Judi, Sandy and Bruce from SAR. I think the next weekend was Las Vegas, when everything started for fall apart. Mary Kay and I were hit from behind by a hit-and-run driver. Car was towed; got a ride to the venue in the back of the cop car. MK got pics, but I'll probably never have those to post, so you'll just have to believe me. We both had the usual whiplash issues, and I've spent a bazillion hours on the phone with assorted insurance people. Still can't get a copy of the accident report. I"ll post an update when this all gets sorted out. So the Dr. says no lifting of standing for the next week, so that put both of us out of the Denver show, and then the show year was finished with Carson.
The next day I had to make a quick run down to Belize to do a GPS feasibility study for a resort developer. I'm hoping to make a GPS sale and return in January to train them.
Tucked in the middle of this was a run down to Albuquerque to teach some classes as China Phoenix and spend a few lovely days with Paula and Teresa.
Weather - Damned cold. Down to -8°F yesterday, that's -22° for you centigrade folks. But I got a pallet of pellets for the wood stove at a very good price, so I'm not being miserly with the heat.
Socks - None lately. I'm trying to use up some of my stash, and bowls are much faster, so bowls it is!
Designs - I'm not plating anything until it's time to get ready for the January shows. I finally finished the zentangle alphabet that I've been dragging around for months (which can't be called "zentangle"). I was REALLY sick of it by the time I got to the last couple of letters.
PC - New one arrived while I was in Belize, so Creighton got stuck with all the setup. Can't say I'm enthralled with Windows7. WAY to much superfluous crap that I don't need or want.
So that brings us up to today, Turkey Day. I'm happily at home, the snow is falling, and all well with the world. Wish the same to all of you.
