Like button stamp

Nation, a design studio, decided to make Like and Dislike rubber stamps that mimic the Like button from Facebook. When I saw them, I had to have them, so I ordered them. And they arrived today – here’s a sample: I can’t wait to stamp a paper at work with the Like stamp!

Since I know how to use Photoshop, I scan and muck up the images (mostly reducing contrast and blurring them a […]

Iggy loves dogs on TV

Whenever Iggy sees or hears a dog on TV, he stares intently and then starts barking and doing pat-a-cake; this video is the tail end of his reaction to a segment on CBS Sunday Morning on rescuing a dog.

Pasadena

We decided to head to Pasadena on Saturday, so we dropped Iggy at doggy daycare (he loves it there, he runs with the other pups and comes home and sleeps like a log) and drove out to Pasadena. We started with my goal for the trip – I wanted to see the Hiroshige print show […]

First the slab – they had to dig twice because they didn’t go deep enough the first time for the inspector (there […]

More pictures I’ve taken this week, mostly with my iPhone; hope you enjoy them! DirecTV had its Programmer’s Day – the companies that provide our programming bring their swag and set up in tents for a 2 1/2 hour party; it was cool to walk around and check out all the varied content DirecTV provides.

Iggy chasing his leg

Iggy chasing his leg

Metldown, Farmer’s Market and Venice Beach + @thegeo & @sinburned & @judemanchu

Today is Nathan’s last day on this visit; he had arranged for us to meet up with @sinburned and @judemanchu at Meltdown, a famous comic book store in LA (in west Hollywood). We shopped and talked, and then headed over to the Farmer’s Market for lunch; we all ended up eating from the Singapore’s Banana […]
