Blind Allegiance To Sarah Palin (Book Review)

Aug 26th, 2011 Posted in General Musings | no comment »

There is no stopping me now!   These are kind of fun to make and I am all over the map, as you can tell.   Actually, I was poking around the site and found the Squidlit area and was curious what it was.   Since Blind Allegiance was one of the last books I read, I figured I would go ahead and review it..again.   I should really have done The Lies of Sarah Palin by Geoffrey Dunn, but I kinda liked Blind Allegiance better.   I may do another lens for Lies later on, we’ll se.

So, as you probably guessed by now, I have made a lens for Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin.    Take a peek and if you have any other suggested reading be sure to add it to the list there with the handy module I have used that allows anyone to add books to the lens.   You can also vote books that are listed up or down.

You can rate Blind Allegiance and give it a thumbs up or down, as well as leave a comment as to why you liked or hated the book.   You can also just leave general feedback or comments at the bottom of the page.

If you buy anything I have recommended on the page, including any of the books that I or others recommend, a portion of the proceeds are automatically donated to the National Wildlife Federation Alaska Regional Center.  (You can verify this at the top of the page, near the rankings which I have no control over).

Is a Papillon the Right Breed For Me?

Aug 24th, 2011 Posted in Papillons | no comment »

A funny title for someone that has a bunch of Papillons, eh?   I know Papillons are right for me, but a lot of people come to my page with questions about Paps, so I decided to make a Squidoo lens to try and help answer some of those questions.

We spent a lot of years doing Papillon rescue and have/had many of our permanent resident dogs become residents because they were “unadoptable” rescues.   We love the little guys here, but they are not right for everyone.

A couple other things before you go, if you agree and want to expand on something I said or disagree with something I have said and want to offer a differing point of view, please feel free to post your perspective in the comments at the bottom of the page.   I’m happy to have other perspectives for potential Papillon owners to read.   I just want informed folks out there so Papillons are getting into good homes that are prepared to take care of them.

There is a poll where you can weigh in on the side of the Papillon or the Phalene.

Finally, if you buy anything recommended on my lens a portion of the proceeds automatically go to the National Wildlife Federation Alaska Regional Center.   They are a group dedicated to Alaska conservation issues, including clean and renewable energy solutions, sustainable tourism, global warming solutions, the cultivation of youth conservation leaders, green jobs, and getting kids outdoors. (You will notice that this can be verified at the very top of the page near the ranking that is automatically done by the system.  I have no control over it).

If you wonder if they are right for you or you just want to see what I had to say, head on over to my Squidoo lens Is a Papillon the Right Breed for Me?
