"Happily Ever Over"
A history of the "truth" behind the fairytales.. :)
Edit: Thank you Neatorama and Miss Cellania
Happily Ever Over is an epic tale that explains a lot of what you you never understood about holidays. An economic crisis among the magical creatures leads to crime and adventure, involving the Pied Piper who lives in his extermination van after his wife left him, an investigator who loves a mysterious ghost, and Santa Claus as you’ve never seen him -a time-traveling, whip-cracking descendant of grizzly bears! It’s a long story, but one you’ll never forget. Written and illustrated by C Merry, first published in 2003 as a gift to her friends.

Happily Ever Over is an amazing holiday epic. Subtitled "How Santa Saved The World Then Lost It All", the story is billed as a never before recalled history of something no one remembers anymore. I'm a big fan of fairy tales, mythology, and Christmas. This story winds them all together with a sense of whimsy.
Written and illustrated by CMerry during a period of illness, the story has only previously been published in hand-made collages, as gifts for friends. The illustrations are marvelous. Let's be grateful that CMerry has shared this lovely story with us, and look for a book deal, I'm sure.

I love some commercials. Some are worth noting due to their beauty or just something about them. Sometimes they introduce us to an artist you may never have heard of otherwise. This song is just a sweet happy song with wonderful lyrics. I don't own a Dell, never will probably, but I thank them for using this song :)

Seems to be a bit of a competition going in the Real Estate World! We've reported on the lady with the stuffed kitty assistant before, now looks like she is being one-upped by someone using a REAL Kitty model! Aww such a cutie, I'd buy your apartments kitty if I had enough Meow Mix in the bank! :)

Vick dogs featured on wine labels
Vicktory Dogs Wine Collection features portraits of 22 dogs confiscated
By MIKE STARK, Associated Press
SALT LAKE CITY — Georgia, Handsome Dan, Curly and other pit bulls rescued from Michael Vick’s dogfighting operation are getting a shot at fame as stars of a line of boutique red wines.
The Vicktory Dogs Wine Collection features colorful portraits of 22 dogs confiscated from Vick’s Bad Newz Kennels that now live at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in southern Utah.
Ellen is one of the pit bulls featured on the label for the Vicktory Dogs Wine Collection. Artist Cyrus Mejia painted the colorful portraits of 22 dogs confiscated from Vick’s Bad Newz Kennels.
“As a signature collection, it’s through the roof,” said Matt Hahn, co-owner of Carivintas Winery, a Southern California company that combines wine selling and philanthropy.
Each bottle includes a portrait of one of the dogs on the label. On the back, instead of a description of the wine, there’s a brief story about each four-legged friend.
The pit bulls have been living at Best Friends since January while handlers try to reverse the mental damage done at Vick’s 15-acre estate in southeastern Virginia. Vick, a former NFL quarterback, is serving a two-year prison sentence in connection with the dogfighting operation.
Artist Cyrus Mejia, one of the founders of Best Friends, began painting the dogs after they arrived at the sanctuary. Gone in the portraits are any signs of snarling beasts fit for a fight ring. Instead, there are cocked heads, soulful eyes and floppy ears.
“I think he’s been able to capture the real personalities of each of the dogs,” said John Polis, a Best Friends spokesman.

Barack Obama and family. Wonderful behind the scenes Flickr album of the moments backstage waiting for the votes to come in, and the great scenes after before they took the main stage when he realized he was the next President of the United States.

Will a Goldendoodle shelter pup be the next presidential doggy? Rumours are flying (like fur) that a poodle mix will be the next White House Pooch. A shelter dog will have the ultimate rags to riches tail, I mean TALE to tell :) We'll have to wait and see but shelters are already in talks with the President-elect's people to get a great shelter baby into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave! My own Poodle Boy (also an elusive poodley-mix rescued from NYC streets) is in full support of this direction in Pup Pickin'.. Let's keep our paws crossed! :)
