Write a Post, Help a Dog

We're taking a little break from the Taiwan stories and I'm not even going to blog about Talk Like a Pirate Day, even if TLAPD is tomorrow.  Instead, tomorrow is the deadline for posting an entry that mentions Pedigree's shelter donation program.  Simply by making this blog entry and linking it back to their site, I've taken advantage of their generous offer to donate 20 lbs of food to an animal shelter.

Similarly, if you go to their Facebook page and "like" it, they'll donate a cup of food to a shelter.  Seems like a great idea to me.  So get on over to Pedigree's FB page and click on the "Help Dogs" tab.

Here's the full list of others who have blogged about Pedigree.  At the time of writing this, that's over 250 blogs or 5,000 lbs of dog food being donated.  No telling how much they've gotten from Facebook fans.

Taiwan Retrospective

Continuing with more photos from Taiwan, here I am enjoying a big steaming basket of dumplings.  Karl wanted pot stickers and this is as close as we got, which was very good. 

Later we walked through Chang Kaishek's Memorial Garden--lovely late in the day. 

It's quite an amazing place with huge gateways, grand promenades, and meticulously kept gardens.

Next installment, Dr. Sun Yatsin's Memorial and Taipai 101, the 2nd tallest building in the world.
