Holiday Shopping and Phantom Fidos

Well, one family holiday down and a few more to go. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! If you are like me you are always looking for something to spiff up your home for holiday entertaining. That's where our friends over at CSN Stores come in. I am always recommending them to friends for everything from counter_stools to cookware. Quality goods at great prices and the best customer service you can find. Check them out and don't get caught this holiday without that one gadget or kitchen utensil you need or that one piece of furniture that could change the entire look of a room. You can view all of the bargains at

Holiday seasons are full of fun and we recently participated in something very fun that we always wanted to do: a flashmob.

Wikipedia: A flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and pointless act for a brief time, then disperse.[2] The term flash mob is generally applied only to gatherings organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.

Our flashmob was the opening dedication ceremony for a new Dog Park in Somerville, Massachusetts. They Mayor was there to cut the ribbon and say a few words when suddenly, out of nowhere, dozens of people were walking around with seemingly invisible dogs.

The key to a flashmob is to stay totally in character and act as if what you are doing is totally natural. We talked to the other dog owners about our pooches, cleaned up after them, and walked them over the exercise ramps.

Isn't my little pug named Sarge the cutest thing you've ever seen?

This event was organized by the Societies Of Spontaneity Boston. Here is a link to more pretty funny pics.

And, although it's not exactly a Flashmob, if you want to participate in a fun public event the Tanglewood Festival Orchestra will be attempting to assemble the world's largest group of Christmas Carolers on Saturday December 4th at the Prudential Center.
