Wow! What a ride 2005 has been so far. I have been checking almost daily and reading the posts. I guess you would say I have been "lurking" the forums. I continue to give to the charities posted in here, most of them anyway. It's not a matter of picking and choosing but as funds come in and are available, I donate to the next ones on the list. To answer a lot of questions;

Yep I am alive and still buying (although, my stash and the offers are repeats for the most part, so it has been sporadic at best) The day that I first logged in with a screen name was 8 months and 4 days from first learning about Woot and buying that first item. The Lemonader I believe? It was a two pack and I was excited. Those that have endured the ride know when I say, generations of Woot turn over ever 90 days or so and the narcotic effect eventually catches up with reality.

I have been to 4 countries since the mission: China, Japan, Canada, back to Mexico, and Russia. Ok, 5 but in 4 months it's hard to count that high. Hence I am once again just passing through and these foreign keyboards are the hardest to type on than you could possibly imagine.

I am currently out of the country until 2006 but the Internet keeps calling my name....

Wooters of 2005, keep up the banter and friendships, it's all in good fun.

Peace and Harmony for 2006 - Woody1



Best Wishes, Woody1!

Guiding Eyes For the Blind. Give, or become a puppy raiser. How cool! A puppy you can take to the mall! A very worthwhile organization.

Yes, yes, yes! As I've said before, I've done work for GEB since 1989 and have had two of their "released" pups. I've met amazing people and even more amazing dogs through the GEB community.

Some friends have raised several puppies for them...about 50/50 on making it all the way. The ones that didn't quite make the grade are working for the DEA and Homeland Security. Don't have the time yet to devote to raising one properly, but should be able to in a few years.
Again, an excellent organization where everyone wins.

Yup, many of the dogs that get through basic training, but don't make it as Guides, end up working elsewhere. They make great "sniffers" and still go on to be successful working dogs.

My current dog, renamed Georgie, originally 7R95 (Seventh of an eight pup litter, "R" litter(Rosa), 1995) was the only one that didn't make it on to be a GEB working dog. It was the most successful litter in their history. I'm currently awaiting a blood kit for samples that are going to be used in an MIT Genetic study.

One of the pups from the R95 litter, "Ruth", was the subject of a Dateline series. She had to be retired early because too many people recognized the "owner" and would call out to the dog. On the other hand, Georgie/Rosa was released @ seven weeks and the two of us helped make a video for Raisers on "What You DON'T Want to Let the Puppy Do", lol!!!!

((((Alien))))

Anyway, Kudos to your friends who are Puppy Raisers and to you for giving it consideration.Their dedication is invaluable. (Where are you, btw?).

They really like doing it and have met some great people. When the dogs are fully trained they're pretty amazing.
I'm based up the Hudson about a hundred miles or so from "the City".

I wonder, what does Christmas mean,
With its stars and shiny balls?
Is Christmas more than Christmas trees
And toys and games and dolls?
Of this I’m sure: There’s something more,
For I’ve heard many say
That in a strange and far-off land,
A child was born this day.
And Christmas is to celebrate
His coming from above.
He showed us how we all should live
And told us we should love.
