Sean French

Today is the 6th annual Sean's Run in Chatham. I have been donating my time maintaining the website for the past year. It's been interesting, to say the least, and the learning curve always keeps me smiling. It was created in FrontPage. Another "intuitive" monster of a (dead) program from Microsoft. I find minimal success just pushing things around in my usual style, while the NYC phonebook-sized manual keeps my coffee cup off the computer desk.

The good news is that it's not raining, something that has not kept the hundreds of runners away in the past, but it is overcast. There were close to 600 registered entrants as of late yesterday. I'll be cheering them on from my front porch while some crazy DJ plugs into that same porch to blast inspirational music over the neighborhood. We are on the race route. What sort of music would you like to run to today? Come to Chatham Village at noon, I think he's taking requests.

Hercules - fact or fiction?

I was one of many who got the email going around last month about the world's biggest dog. Truth be told, the picture of "Hercules" (or whoever) is really amazing. Here's a cropped teaser: Bigdog-crop.jpg
Are those huge feet really in the grass, or is it some sort of computer magic?
A little easy research might answer the question, or create more. I found the story debunked at snopes. What do you think? And what do you do if he chases cats?

Lazy lazy lazy.

I've been a very bad girl; not posting entries, not reading other blogs, all wrapped up in, well, whatever. I've no offerings or excuses; did some traveling, cooked and baked for some fancy family events, time has passed and I guess that's all I can say about it.

Oh, and the website for The Chocolate Moose is finally live!!!
