Entrepreneurial-minded wedding photographers John Andrews and Eric Hegwer have added "iPod Proofs" to their services, featuring custom-engraved his-and-hers video iPods with music, photos and slideshows of your wedding, including all photos they make. (Hence, proofs. A better name, I think, would be iPod Keepsakes.)
Fits in with my idea of establishing a franchise that goes around elders houses, documenting all their prized possesions with a little history of how they acquired them and what they would like to happen to them when they die. (Maybe I should ask Caroline if some of her well heeled customers would be interested!)

Yep, this is pretty much what you expect — a book about pee. Not just peeing anywhere, but peeing all over the place. New York, Miami, Shanghai, and other worldwide locales get the business in photographer Ellen Jong’s Pees on Earth: A Pissin’ Mission.
His management company said that he had been in poor health for the past year.
Born in Alabama, Pickett shot to fame in the 1960s, with hits including In The Midnight Hour and Mustang Sally.
I remember listening to his LP and also Otis Redding when running my scrap electronics business with Harry Collins, here in Cambridge.

Your Blog Should Be Blue
You tend to avoid conflict - you're more likely to share than rant.
From your social causes to cute pet photos, your life is a (mostly) open book.
and yes it is already blue . how harmonious is that!

andWriting in 2006 and reasons to blog...
Maybe I should make this my New Years resolution :-
"Write. Then write more. Write till it scares the crap
out of you. If it doesn’t, press on; it will. Write till you get brave
enough to keep writing in spite of how scared you are. In spite of what
anyone thinks, including yourself.
The upside is that you’ll find out who you are. The downside is, well… that you’ll find out who you are."
"I offer you an algorithm: find out the age of the oldest person in your audience and divide it by two. That’s you’re optimal font size"
The other 10 rules are great too
