Denny Has Retired — Let’s Remember

May 27th, 2017 by Gary Crow

Play

I have told you before about Denny, the world’s 16th greatest guide dog. Well, Denny was with me for over ten years but the day finally came for him to retire. I won’t go into the details but Denny’s health had gotten to the point where being a guide dog was no longer possible.

 

Yes, it was very sad. He was unable to work anymore but his heart was still very much up to doing what he had done for over a decade. On his last day, he came to have his harness put on and so wanted to go with me again. It was not to happen but his spirit was ever willing.

 

Now I have Oliver. He is a twenty month old black lab and is eager to be my guide dog. We spent two weeks training together at Pilot Dogs after his six months of guide dog training. The two weeks were for the two of us to begin to bond and get used to working together. Oliver is home now and learning about his new environment and responsibilities. So far, things are going quite well.

 

To remember Denny and the five other Pilot dogs that came before Oliver, I am re-posting a podcast about my first six Pilot dogs. It will be a while before I am ready to update the podcast to include Oliver but his day in that spotlight is out there on the far horizon. He is Pilot dog seven for me and I expect we will have as satisfying a journey as with each of his six predecessors.

 

For now, join me in remembering Dr. Pepper, Fellow, Blacky, Ben, Quincy, and Professor Denny. Oliver has big paws to follow but is, I am sure, totally up to the challenge.

It’s All About Me

May 12th, 2017 by Gary Crow

I assume that you like me sometimes need to deal with people who drive you up the wall. When having to interact with them, the frustration factor is at the center of your world. Life for you is at least tedious and at worst stressing you enough to make you think about finding a place to hide where you never have to deal with people again.

 

The reality is that the people who drive you up the wall are not going away. They and you are here to stay. The good news is that you don’t have to let them continue to drive you up the wall. They can be brought into line and you are just the person who can handle them.

 

Let me share a few examples along with some strategies and techniques you can use to put a stop to the attitudes and behavior that are driving you up the wall. Please listen to the Audio Tidbits Podcast to get the full scoop on I Players.

Are You A Thinker?

Are you a thinker? It seems that most of us are not. As it turns out, if we were to actually think twice a month, we would move into the thinker elite.

 

The Audio Tidbits Podcast team shares their perspective on thinking, what it means to think, and why thinking is a good thing. What is the meaning of life, how do we tell right from wrong, and where is the value in a sunny day? These and more think-worthy considerations are in the podcast for us. Please listen and give it a good think.

Who Is Your Audience?

May 6th, 2017 by Gary Crow

Play

I had an interesting conversation earlier today and thought sharing it with you would be a good thing to do. I was talking about the Audio Tidbits Podcast and was asked who my audience is. I was tempted to tell my friend about you since I think the two of you might hit it off but caught myself an instant before I violated your privacy. You hadn’t given me your permission to talk about you with other people and respecting your privacy is a priority for me.

 

Since I had not directly answered my friend’s question, she then asked me how big the Audio Tidbits Podcast audience is. I found that question a little odd. She obviously wanted to know how many of you there are. When I told her that there is only one of you, that you are unique, she was nearly speechless. I guess that means that I should not consider moving to an interview format for the podcast. There would be way too much silence.

 

When she at last found her voice, she asked me what the Audio Tidbits Podcast is about. I told her that the podcast includes audio tidbits from here and there about this and that. She was once more speechless for a few seconds and then said, “Please explain.”

 

I was thinking to myself, “What is there to explain? What about this and that is hard to understand?”

 

Even so, I told my friend I would give it a try. I knew it was not going to be all that easy since the Audio Tidbits Podcast is not about anything in particular. It’s not focused on anything Unique or specific to a person or thing or category. I have to admit that I was myself left a little speechless by her question.

 

Now it was my voice that was returning. Here is what I said to my friend once I could again speak. … Please listen for the rest of the story.
