*June 4: LaGrange Pet Parade: America’s Original Pet Parade. No doubt I’ll be sitting inside a classic car (but mostly walking the route) with Robin and one of our dogs, Hazel, makes an appearance too!
The parade kicks off t 9:30AM, at LaGrange Road and Cossitt Avenue in LaGrange.The route can be seen here. Previously, I’ve been a Grand Marshall or co-Grand Marshall.
Of course, watching the parade – which includes hundreds of pets (mostly dogs, but an occasional cat in a carrier even hamster in a cage) – is free.

When you do reach people, what are you saying? Bill and Steve will talk content, how to develop ideas, and how to use credible sources. But what if you just don’t feel like writing, or you’re “blocked?”
As a bonus, Bill and Steve will delve into how to expand your Blog using traditional media, as well as various social media platforms.
