These puppies made the long trip from Jeju Island to Brooklyn

My friends at PS9 Pets in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (more about them here) are hosting a special event on Saturday to help find homes for puppies rescued from becoming food.

The pups – and their mums – are extraordinarily cute. Pics here.

 

I hate to miss it but I’ll be visiting Mom back home in the Scranton area.

Twitter Spotlight: Jun Song

I’m grateful to @Hidden_Gold for making me aware of Jun Song aka @JunDishes. See, I don’t watch Big Brother so I otherwise might have missed out on the fun that is Jun, her tweets and her excellent blog.

Jun has done a lot more in her young life beyond winning Big Brother. She has been an investment banker and entrepreneur, and now she’s living in Belgium where she is wife to Davy, mom to Noah (CUTE!) and writing her first book.

More to come, I’m quite sure.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@JunDishes: 1. “Do-er” because I can be lazy sometimes. 2. “Grow-er” because I always want more. 3. “Show-er” because instant gratification should never die.

Twitter Spotlight: Rod Benson

Who is Rod Benson aka @boomtho? Only the most popular pro basketball player in Korea. And an entrepreneur, graphic designer and writer too. Remember when I told you about Rod’s hilarious blog?

The dude is smart – he graduated from Berkeley. A 2012 Cal alumni publication article about Rod quoted one of his friends thusly:

“He was kind of a nerd,” says Renee Pesiri ‘07, a Berkeley law student who became friends with Benson during freshman year. “He taught me the Dewey decimal system.”

Too much Rod Benson? Never.
