New neighbors!

People keep asking me for an update, and now it is official: The upstairs unit sold and the new neighbors moved in upstairs this week. Here's the best part: All evidence so far suggests that they are NOT CRAZY! And that's not even a sarcastic exclamation point. Plus, the dog likes them. So, all is good.

Also, I've been writing a weekly e-newsletter on healthcare marketing for work. I don't really like to write about work here but I'm kind of proud of this, so check it out. This week I wrote about the (supposed) backlash against meetings. I've received a bunch of reader responses ... it's obviously a sore subject.

This little piggy is on Flickr

Aw, look--he's giving you the thumbs up!

I've added a new set for pictures of Calvin on my Flickr page with a few more that aren't posted here. I have made them public for now but if you want to see all of my pictures of babies and such you should really create a free account and let me know your user name so that I can add you to my list of friends and family. This allows you to see private pictures and also to download photos to your own computer or to order prints.

Audrey, Diane, Robin, and Andrea all have pictures of dogs and babies and weddings and birthday parties and etc. posted, too. But most of them are private--you can't see them if you don't sign up and let us all know to add you as a contact!

Too little for my hat
What you think about that?
I'm a baby, you know what I mean
And I do my little turn in my whale hat

Pictures of the feet to come!

Seriously, have you ever seen such a sweet face? Wait 'till you see his feet!

Oh, Baby!

Babies make me happy!
Meet Calvin, my newest love. Just shy of 6 pounds. 19 inches long. Steel blue eyes and lots of dark hair. Interesting feet with very loooong toes! Mom doing fine. More pictures, as usual, to come.

Been a lot going on, but not a lot of time to write about it all. Our favorite Beagle friend Simon came to visit last week. I don't know if you can tell this about him, but he is pretty laid back. Unlike someone else I know.
