Isabel on Animal Planet

Last night on a show called Dogs 101, Isabel was on TV for a few seconds. The show featured a few breeds including a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. One of my co-workers has one and was featured. In the process they showed a bunch of dogs at Ben & Jerry's including Isabel. So she's pretty much famous. If they show reruns, it will probably be listed here.

An endorsement

A Single Pebble.

Tonight we had dinner at A Single Pebble. A Chinese restaurant in downtown Burlington that gets rave reviews, but I've always steered clear of. I must say, I now understand what all the hype is about. Very interesting and delicious dishes like Mock Eel and braised local beef with noodles. Here is the key to this place... You must go with at least six people (who are not picky eaters) that you can all share all the food. True family style, they even had a big lazy Susan in the middle of the table. This evening we had the pleasure of dinning with Shannon and Benjamin, along with Benjamin's father, brother, and sister - excellent company that really made the food taste that much better.

After stressing about what to be for Halloween for weeks, I ended up being an i pod commercial. It was a bit strange to be covered in black paint and a little annoying to have a giant piece of foam board attached to my back but, all in all it worked out pretty well...I didn't poke any eyes out or break any expensive collectibles in Lloyd and Kelly's new house. More importantly I made friends with Lance Black (Jay's costume), who made his first appearance when we were in college and let's just say we didn't really get along back then. Lloyd and Kelly's new house is great and the party was a blast. The prize for the best costume goes to Little Sean who didn't make it to the party but was showing off his costume for the family at lunch the next day.
