Best of the Week – 3512

Here we go with with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.

Movie Trailer of the Week: 
Taken 2 – In theatres October 5th, 2012
Need I say more, then this is the sequel to the film that gave us this legendary quote:
“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you. ”
And who doesn’t want to see more of Liam Neeson.
P.S. Same plot as the first one… basically.

Video of the Week:
Tinker vs. The Caterpillar

I shot this one, and it’s my doxie… what else can I say.

News Article of the Week:
Elderly lady ‘restores’ church fresco.
The great Spanish Fresco last week


An elderly parishioner took it upon herself to restore 100+ years of moisture damage to ‘Ecce Homo’, and the results were, well, shall we say a little shocking… Except to the internet, who have adopted it as it’s newest meme.














eBay Auction of the Week:
Genuine Black Leather Pony mask Carnival Roleplay Horse Mistress ponyplay New
Suppose you’re into leather? Suppose you’ve recently finished reading 50 Shades of Grey? Suppose you like My Little Pony? Now you can combine all your favourites with this leather bondage horse mask?????

Awesome Software of the Week:
Planetside 2
The long awaited sequel to one of my favourite MMO‘s is now in closed beta. Planetside is one of the only MMOFPS games ever, and probably the most popular. I was a big fan of the never ending combat, and the ability to jump online, run around for as long as I wanted, and then just leave… something that is hard to do in other online games that require, among other things… RAIDS. I can’t wait for it to come out, or when I finally get my beta invite… and best of all, it will be free to play!

As always, I’m still open to suggestions for other categories, and for nominations to get included on the list. You can let me know at: oftheweekATleighcDOTcom

It’s Dachshund Time!


Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but I’m a Dachshund, so love me, maybe?
To some of you, I may also be know as a Weenie Dog, Weiner Dog, Sausage Dog, Doxie, Long Dog or even a Tekkel Doxie.
Now some of you may be wondering why I’m writing about dachshunds… Well, let’s start with the fact that I (and the wife of course) own a doxie, in fact, she can be seen in the picture to the left. Her name is Tinker, after Tinkerbell, and she is a dapple patterned, tween (she’s not big enough to be a standard and a little to big to be a miniture) size dachshund that also has Heterochromia iridum (2 different coloured eyes).

So, now on to the real reason behind a post dedicated to the lovable dachshund.

  1. I want to setup a Dachshund Race
  2. I recently acquired www.longdog.net
Dachshund Racing just plain looks fun, even if there are people that do not condone it. From what I have been able to find, the nearest organized event to me (at least in Canada)is in Montreal. I would like to do an event for the maritime’s, inviting dogs from Atlantic Canada and New England to come compete in a fun event, with some prizes (and hopefully some sponsors of course) and all to raise some money for the local Animal Rescue League, Canadian Dachshund Rescue and Dachshund Rescue of North America.
So, now I have to decide, should I register Tinker and go to the Montreal Wiener Dog Races, or spend that time planning a 2013 Dachshund race in Saint John. I also need to figure out what I want to do with longdog.net. I initially wanted to setup a Word Press style site with forums dedicated to all things doxie, or maybe use it as the front for my dachshund racing plans, and eventually the event itself.
I’ll come back this soon, and post an update.
In the meantime, consider donating to one of the organizations below, adopting your very own Dachshund or both.
