Just Released TweetGlide a NEW FREE Twitter Desktop Apps For Windows PC & Mac That Rocks!

October 28, 2009

Newly Released Twitter Desktop App from Mike Filsaime Goes Live for Windows & Mac, TweetGlide Does It All and it’s FREE!

I downloaded this new Twitter app today from Mike Filsaime called TweetGlide and I am so impressed with it that I have to bring it to your attention. I started out managing my Twitter microblogging account with Twhirl, then moved to TweetDeck for the larger dashboard feel and much more control. Tweet Glide application works the same as TweetDeck, even looks very similar and most of the controls are in the same spot, you can add your Facebook account too! The microblogging application works for both windows and mac.

What makes Tweet Glide shine is that by using it, you actually get free traffic that can grow viral pretty fast. There is a built in traffic generation feature that allows you to display your own AD inside of the app that all users will see. As a free member you can have up to 5 ads with 142 characters (will look just like a regular tweet). But if you sign up as a Premier member (only $97 & includes 500 ad credits) you can have up to 20 ads with 420 characters (a lot more ad) plus colored backgrounds and the use of basic HTML.

TweetGlide Twitter Application Ad Screenshot

You buy your ads with credits you gain by tweeting. For every 5 tweets you post in a 3 hour period you gain 1 credit. Ad credits can also be purchased. Both the Free and Premier ads also come with full tracking of ads and impressions. The ad column can be closed if you do not want to view any ads.

Another great feature is that you can tweet more than the 140 character limit, TweetGlide will add a link to your tweet that will direct the reader to your TweetGlide Blog (included) where they can read the rest of the post.

TweetGlide is the next generation of desktop Twitter apps and will make managing your Twitter & Facebook accounts so much easier! You can find out more and download it for free by going to:

15 to 25 Knots Bouncing Off the Sand Bars of Stage Harbor, Chatham Sailing on the “Crusty Too” Sailboat!

October 18, 2009

Bounced off the sand bar a few times sailing out of Stage Harbor, Chatham!

My sister was up visiting from NC for her 30th high school reunion, two north easters roared in at the same time but we managed to get out sailing on the “Crusty Too” one day. It was blowing 15 to 25 knts out of the North West so it should of been somewhat calm off of Hardens Beach.

For a great sailing toon hit the play button!

Not having any reef points in the main sail makes it interesting in these conditions. So with just a hancky of the jib out, we set to sailing out of the inlet from Stage Harbor, which should of been an easy reach. It was a peak out going tide though and the wind & current kept pushing us onto the leeward shore.  For some reason the O’day 22 sailboat did not want to tack, the outboard did not want to run, the jib winches were frozen and the gusts of wind were laying us over on our ears so it was interesting trying to get out of the narrow inlet. Needless to say we bounced off the sand bars just outside of the inlet.

The tide was really roaring out of the inlet and once we manged to get clear of the bars we ran into a rip tide. There were 3 to 4 foot curling waves and we could not tack and clear the rip, so we took a few waves across the bow, but managed to stay somewhat dry. Then we were getting set down onto a small fleet of Sea Clam fishing boats that had their rigs set and were dragging, after slipping across the bow of one fishing boat we sailed out of the rip into calmer seas and finally popped open a beer! All in all it was a great sail!

Searching For An Indestructible Rope Tug Durable Dog Chew Toy Christmas Gift?

October 3, 2009

We have found 1 of the toughest & (almost) Indestructible Rope Tug Durable Dog Chew Proof Toys!

This Dent-A-Tug is by far the most durable dog chew proof toy we have found, our Chocolate Lab “Lakota” has yet to destroy one! He got a Dent-A-Tug two Christmases ago and it is still in use almost everyday! Lakota can gut the toughest canvas stuffed dog toys in a matter of minutes and usually ingests some of the toy.  Up to 5 Indestructible Dog Toys Ship For Only $6.99!

He has run up almost $2000 in Vet fees for blockages (luckily not having to go through surgery, please see below for full story). His dog toy box now consists of large real marrow bones (which he still manages to break off pieces) and a couple of almost indestructible Dent-A-Tugs. Lakota has not been back to the Vet since we stopped giving him stuffed dog chew toys.

A quick cure for a dogs potential gastric, intestinal or abdominal obstruction!

If you know or suspect your dog has ingested a foreign object that may cause a gastric obstruction or blockage then this home remedy may save you a lot of worrying and Vet bills. As long as the foreign object has not passed out of the stomach you can induce vomiting in your dog by getting the dog to drink 1 teaspoon of Hydrogen Peroxide per 5 pounds of the canine, not to exceed 3 tablespoons (it should be administered undiluted). I have not tried this home remedy but a friend of mine has with great success. He owns a Chocolate Lab with a pension for eating panties, well one day the wifes favorite panties disappeared, so they used the home remedy and in a very short time the dog vomited up the panties. Jake the dog was back to his old mischievous self in about 30 minutes. Do provide lots of water for your dog afterwards. For more information see Emetic Agents heading at ASPCA tips to manage a poison emergency. Please note Legal Disclaimer at the end of this post.

Lakota’s Gastric Obstruction Full Story:

Thought I would share with you Lakota’s gastric obstruction adventure. When Lakota got sick with a blockage, it started with him throwing up on his own. The first Vet visit with an overnight and X-rays showed up nothing. Lakota came home, after a brief recovery and a meal he got sick again. After more days of throwing up and not eating we took him to the Cape Animal Referral & Emergency Center where after 3 days of watching, testing, X-rays (still not showing anything) and a Barium study (inconclusive) they decided to pursue it as a blockage and operate on him. We got the call at 9 PM that they were going to operate, needless to say we were feeling pretty bad, the doctors did not paint us the prettiest of pictures for the procedure.

Then at 10 PM the center called with Great News! Lakota did not have to go
through with the operation, after being prepped and the anesthesia took affect the doctors were able to examine the back of his mouth and throat. That is when they found a piece of thread wrapped around the back of his tongue and running down into his throat. The end of which was hooked onto some sort of obstruction (that would not show up on X-rays). They cut the thread, we got Lakota back the next day, he was weak but hungry and after a colorful poop right back to his old puppy self!!

The Hospital visit bill was $1750, the operation would of been over $3000. We did not have insurance then, we do now. Lakota’s toy box took on a new look with all cloth, stuffed and rag toys gone. The ordeal was rough on my wife & I, luckily it had a happy ending, you sure do get attached to your furry friend.
