After today’s Ocotillo Online Learning Group meeting, I am hitting the road for a long weekend in San Diego. I need to romp in the ocean and find some good fish tacos.

Much to Mrs CogDogBlog’s pleasure, I am likely leaving the laptop at home ;-) so this blog will be in holding pattern a few days.

The post "Beached Dog" was originally yanked out of the teeth of a rabid chicken at CogDogBlog ( on September 3, 2004.

    Alan or CogDog:

    I have been looking over your site and even took your on-line blogging conference. It was very educational. Your comments re the “nice photo” syndrome on are well taken. Missy, Puja, Sezrah & many other participants hate the comment counter feature. Many are into the “pen-pal” aspect and collect lots of friends. It takes time to comment and, thus, you get the “nice photo” syndrome.

    In your next incarnation of the class, you might mention the political use many (including me) are making of their personal blogging site.

    Good work — are you ArTeach? I really like this area of your educational program.
