A movie for your library's collection or your personal use

Check out the website for THE MOVIE FOR DOGS. You can purchase a video or DVD that provides an hour and 13 minutes of dogs having fun (it has been programmed to repeat itself so it will play as long as you as you are gone). The movie is divided into different sections—e.g. dogs in the water, fly ball and agility competitions and the soundtrack of different audio cues is designed to keep a dog's interest throughout.


Talkin' turkey

Thursday is Thanksgiving, a time when we all gather with family and friends to celebrate the first known case of indigestion in North America. No wait - that's a different holiday! Anyway, it IS that time when our thoughts turn to turkey and dressing and pumpkin pie, so this seems like a good time to visit the Urban Legends site and see what they say about turkeys. My fave:


You say tomato, I say to-mah-toe

The other day I was looking at some new designs for the Infopeople website (yes, a new design is in the works, no I won't say anymore about it). Anyway, there was some dummy text on the page, the usual "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..." and I started pondering, not for the first time, what the heck that text really means. I took Latin in college for one year but it clearly didn't take. Clearly it was time for a little research.
