The Shindog Blog
Hi Peeps ... i've noticed from the stats this page has become quite popular despite my lack of updates ... unfortunately i havent't been in the mood for writing much. My wifes mother is still suffering and we fear the worst ... and spoken of the unspeakable. I plan to move the blog out to a domain at some point ... shindog.something or other.
This page is about dave, if you've been to gametronix you would of met me (I am writing this page), I've listed this somewhat personal page discreetly under the gametronix site, because in one way or another over the years gametronix's customers have come to know me quite well, my personal life has been undeiniably intertwined with my business ventures for better or worse and the other guys just get sick of 'wheres dave and whens he gonna be back' type lines. So here it is... all the goss and a little insight into my world..... which is two very different places! I also have a cam setup from the bj apartment which occasionaly has open guest access, feeling lucky? try here . or...Checkout some shindoggii TV
now what? (sounds like shen zai shen ma)... i have no idea if they use that expression here in china, if they do it's probably in reverse, everything thing is reversed here in BJ. Thats just how it is. I wonder if the reverse has those slight different connotations like we do in the "west"... now what? .... what now?
It's all about waiting ... what do you say to someone who is living what seems to be their last moments ... however long those are. The diminuendo of life. *sigh*
snapped this photo when we were in Lingyungang ... kind of sums up the mood here.
Whilst we wear a smile for the world it's only in the private moments the invisible mask of day fades and one can expose their true feelings amongst the closeness of family.
and now onto todays funny thing ....
Shenme Dongxi!!!"every day in china you see something (shenme dongxi) you don't see every day" [one billion customers; auth : James Mcgregor ..lessons from the frontlines of doing busines in china]. This little section is dedicated to that weird or strange thing which inadvertently you see everyday in china .. so to prove a point i'll see if i can find one 'mai tian do' (every day).
