Don't call it a comeback!

Well, well,'s been a while! Oh have I missed writing on this thing. As you may or may not know, I have been terribly ill for the past few weeks. It all started with an uncomfortable case of eye strain which led to a routine check up and then soon after: my sudden revelation regarding my health crisis.

I must plead the fifth on the specifics but trust me - I needed a lifestyle change like this country needs a new president. So in my instant quest for better living, I caught the fucking flu! Attributed to the fact that my immune system was at an all time low, I got really sick, uber sick. So, I slept through most of it hoping to resurface with a different outlook, something more positive and upbeat to the tune of a neverending Beatles track. I could see the fake smile now! ~ This is what I thought to myself while I lay covered in cat fur, tisues and day old hate.

Sometimes when your facing immenant suckiness, it's best to focus on the good things in life. Life is crazy but it is good. Music is good, laughter is good, ice cream is good, love is good, the beach is good, her smile is good, family is good, soup is good, faith is good, and writing for a living is good. Feel free to elaborate my friends. I am back but then again I never left!

Will see you very soon, with more updates then ever! Thanks for keeping up with "Life and Times in Hollyweird" ---

Hey Everyone!

So, where we list our Bill Foundation dogs, is running a contest with The Animal Rescue Site. Every click donates money to an animal in need, but now they're giving away $100,000 in grants to Rescue Organizations, and we'd love Bill Foundation to be one of them. Here's all you need to do:

1. Go to The Animal Rescue Site.

2. Click on "Click to Give" (it's a big purple box)

3. That will take you to the next page. SCROLL DOWN and at the bottom is an ad for the Petfinder challenge.

4. Click on the ad.

5. This will take you to the NEXT page 0 and here's the important part - VOTE FOR BILL FOUNDATION. Just enter Bill Foundation and set the state to CA and click SEARCH.

6. This will bring up Bill Foundation. Just click VOTE and you're done.

The contest is simple: you can vote ONCE A DAY (from EACH computer, from EACH browser, so do it from home and from work!)

As you know, the current state of the economy has been tough on us all, and it's not just affecting people. Animals are being abandoned and turned in at shelters because people are losing their homes and their jobs. We're at capacity, and our vet bills are rising. However, this is a simple way to help the dogs that costs nothing but a few moments of your time.

The contest runs until December 15th. So make The Animal Rescue Site part of your daily routine. I'll send out email reminders, but I know that you all have address books and MySpaces and Facebooks and blogs of your own. Please spread the word among your family and friends.

Information, buttons for your sites and your blogs, ready-made press releases can be found here.

Please please please, pass this along. And vote daily.
