Random Stuff

First, I'll have a booth at the Spooky Pooch Parade this Saturday, October 20th. My dog daycare and training facility, Pawsitive Influence will be located in the back left corner. My wife's store Rustbelt Revival will have dog beds, hand made jewelry and vintage items for sale as well. She will be offering a discount, so it's worth the visit just to check it out. If you have a dog there will be plenty of free stuff and activities for your furry family member. Plus, there will be a bunch of dogs wearing costumes. Registration starts at 12:30 and the parade starts at 2. The parade will walk from St. Charles Green to Caribou Coffee and back. Check out the details at
Second, “Facebook now requires page administrators to pay to promote updates if we want our content to be seen by all our fans. If we do not pay to promote our posts, only about 10% of our fans receive updates on Facebook's home page feed.

However, there is one thing you can do to keep receiving posts from your favorite pages. Hover your mouse on the "Like" button to the right of our name. In the drop-down menu select "Add to Interest Lists." Then create an interest list (and make a name for your favorite sites). When you select that interest list you will see ALL of our posts and you won't miss anything!” -Carnegie Museum. If you want to make sure you're seeing all my posts and those of your favorite Lakewood businesses on Facebook you'll have to go through all this now.

Third, let me know how think the blog is going. Am I missing topics you think should be addressed like bathrooms or the type of free peanuts on the bar. I haven't seen anybody give away free nuts yet. How do you like the shirts, are there any changes you would like to make them even better? Do you want me to come up with any of those 1-5 scales on stuff? Is anyone on Google+?

Also, we decided that hard cider goes well with bacon.  What do you think is the proper beer to compliment bacon?
