Thanks to Cesar Millan ~ Dog Whisperer

Check out the National Geographic series Dog Whisperer on Fridays at 9:00 p.m.

as well as his book, Cesar's Way:

"I rehabilitate dogs and train people.
I am the Dog Whisperer"

Cesar has been a big help since Day 1 of Spaz's arrival to our home.
Spaz, 12-year-old, border collie-lab mix had been unbalanced for
as long as I've known him. Now Spaz is gradually but surely
becoming a 'balanced' - happy dog.

New restaurant in town

VIN (pronounced ‘vine’)
1 E. Joppa Road Suite 155, Towson, MD 21286 - 410-337-0797

A new 'hip' restaurant just opened in the center of Towson, and my hubby and I decided to try, for a nice relaxing time away from work.

I had 'gazpacho' - a perfect dish for a hot summer day - it was nice & cold, and was a good portion with a nice Maryland touch: lump crabmeat - so sweet-. My hubby's Club Sandwich was humongous but we kept munching on - the bread (Brioche) was so good.

We only took a peek but its "World's Tiniest Dessert Menu" was irresistible [crème brulee, chocolate ganache cake, tempura banana split with chocolate ice cream and sugared walnuts, apple crisp with cardamom ice cream].

This restaurant was entertaining but cozy at the same time. I think the place gets pretty busy on nights & weekends, but lunch hour is perfect for a little escape from your busy day.

In 2008, The Dark Knight Returns!

Looks like I'm going to have to update my "Batman & Oscar" post!

If you haven't heard already, Acadamy Award-nominated Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain) has officially signed on as The Joker in the Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight!

It's an out-of-left-field choice, but I dig it. Casting Ledger as the Joker proves that TDK's take on the Clown Prince of Crime will be different from any other interpretation. I'm already excited and the movie's still two years away!

Speaking of updating the Oscar post, if rumors are to be believed, Oscar winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) has been offered the role of Oswald Cobblepot.
