My Dad’s DVD

Hi John,

I just wanted to say thank you for the DVD you made of my Dad. I miss him so much and I cry every day, because something always reminds me of him. I haven't watched it yet, but I will. Thanks again.

Dog Petition


Thank you for signing the petition to urge Ohio to implement laws against keeping working or pet dogs outside in cold weather.

Their currently is no legal protection for dogs in Ohio, that are kept outdoors year-round, even in frigid temperatures. This is an absolute sign of animal cruelty and abuse. With your help, we will succeed!

Thinking of Getting a Tablet

Hi John,

I have been thinking about buying myself a tablet, but I'm not sure what one to get. I thought maybe you could help me decide on what I need or might like. I finally got myself an iPhone and I love it, but now I think, maybe I should have gotten a tablet.

I like the idea of sitting on the couch and using the Internet, but I have trouble seeing the tiny screen and all the pages. I can't enlarge it, or else things are too large. Anyhow, I think I want to get one but I’m not sure what connections I need, so could you send me some information.

I would probably prefer to get an Apple iPad, but I know there are many other kinds of tablets out there, so please help.
