The Figgs are one of the best bands around - and they have been around for years and years. Probably one of my favourite Top Five bands, in company with The Posies, and others. I ordered a couple of CDs, including their "live" release "Continue To Enjoy The Figgs Vol. 2", and Stomper Music promptly shipped them. (Thanks, guys!) Funny thing, though; this is what happened:
[...] let us know when your order arrives because the woman at the post office added China under Singapore!
That is funny!

Prince passed away exactly a year ago. Jen found some photos of him while spring cleaning. Here is one of him as a puppy.

Bacchus arrives home

a fluffy Bacchus arrives home

The latest addition to our family is puppy Bacchus! We was born on the 28th of September 2007, in Australia. When we took him home this afternoon, the monster weighed 1.75 kg. Bacchus, like Prince before him, belongs to the Shetland Sheepdog clan. Their specific history is summarised by Ann Bowling (here) and there is more information about them on Wiki . For more, visit Sheltie Nation! We had a hard time thinking about whether there could be "something" after Prince left us, but then we realised that he hasn't really left. Uncle Prince will always be around.

My buddy Prince passed away this morning. He was 11 years old.
