Are you in need of a puppy/dog in your life? Then do I have the one for you.
A month ago, Wife found a puppy with a blue bandana wandering the streets. She picked him up, brought him home, and named him Blue. He slept calmly through the night. The next day, I dropped him off at the Central County Shelter with hope that he would be found and brought home.
While here, he was a little shy but began to warm up with us and Killian as he became more comfortable. He slept through the night without making much of a sound.
Sadly, a month has passed and he his still there. Unfortunately, most of the rescues are so full that they cannot take him. We are hoping that someone out there wants a puppy and that Blue is right for you!
He is at the Central County Shelter under the name Harry (I know, it is a horrible name). If you or someone you know is interested, please let me know. Wife and I would love to see him go to a very happy home.
For the past (over) four and-a-half years, I have had an awesome job that allowed me to teach kids about flight and space, meet/hang out with people like the first and last men to walk on the moon (along with many before, between, and after), and run the social media outreach for a cultural institution.
As I just mentioned, working at the San Diego Air & Space Museum allowed me to meet astronauts, such as Wally Schirra (the first astronaut I ever met, I brought him coffee), Scott Carpenter, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Eugene Cernan, Al Worden (here and here), Bill Anders, Franks Borman, James Lovell; movie stars like Harrison Ford; and so many many more.
During this same time of meeting celebrities, I built up the social media outreach for the Museum. I started by opening a Twitter account (@SDASM) for the Museum during the first special exhibition, Star Trek: The Exhibition (see some videos here, here, and here). The YouTube page, Facebook page, WordPress blog, Flickr page, and Tumblr quickly followed. I started the first social media outreach in Balboa Park (@balboapark) and let it grow.
Thanks to the opportunities the Museum offered me, I have procured a position at the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau as the Interactive Editor. I will be able to take my “part-time” job of social media coordinator at the Museum and turn in into a full-time position.
After leaving the Museum, I will definitely miss the my colleagues, the fun I had, and the people I have met. However, I look forward to my new position and the possibilities that it will offer me. The past four-and-a-half years have led me this new job and for that I am grateful.
Three Cheers for SDASM!!! (Sorry, on a 18th century naval kick)
