Photos of Daisy end up in the strangest places

As I've discussed before one of the most interesting aspects of having your own web site is reviewing the associated analytics. They tell you all sorts of yummy stuff about the people that visit your site and what they do. For example, according to our Google analytics, we've had visitors from 23 different countries in the past month. It also shows you folks love cable modems as it's the #1 connection speed. You also enjoy using IE, but we won't hold that against you either.

One of the more interesting data points captured is referrers. This little detail even let's me know who is "hot linking" to images on our site. Basically, what other sites are using images directly from Janney Family. Keeping that concept in mind, I thought I'd share three web sites where photos of our Daisy have appeared...note: anything goes on the links below so be prepared (aka view these at home and not at work and no porn - I promise :)

1. Trail Riders web forum (scroll down to see the pic of Dilly)

2. UMG League Forum (scroll down)

3. Zedge forums - Nike vs. Adidas (scroll down - my personal fav)

There are definitely a few others, but I haven't been able to track down the exact page. Or, maybe the pages simply don't exist anymore. *shrug*

Either way I thought people would be interested in seeing this little slice of insight into how online images get used (or abused) depending on your viewpoint.

Greetings from Janneyville

Howdy dear reader! It has been a while since we updated, so I thought I'd sit down and fill the world in on Janneyville.

Everything keeps right on trucking.

Caleb continues to eat and grow and eat and grow and then eat some more. We're all going to end up with bad backs if he doesn't learn to walk soon - he has his nine-month-check-up this Tuesday, and my guess is that he'll weigh in around 25 lbs at least. Crawling will be upon us any day and honestly, I can see him walking soon after that if he maintains this mega growth and development.

Daisy. Wow. She is something else. Currently, her favorite make-believe game is to line up her little people (Grover, a farmer, Elmo, a pirate) on a tv tray, then knock them all off with a larger toy. As they little people fall they go, "Ahhhhhhhhhh!" Now, Paul and I aren't quite sure why Daisy feels the need to terrorize her little people, but I can say that she always picks them up and says, "okay, it's okay." So even though she tosses them to their demise, she picks them up and dusts them off after.

Paul seems to really be doing well with Paypal - he is our traveler. He braved a flight into Cheyenne during an extremely windy and nasty storm this time around; I know when he says it was scary that it was just that, scary. Luckily, he made it home safe and sound - although his carry-on waited a day to show up.

My job is great, I truly love what I'm doing. There is so much to learn, so much to know. So much to be done. Every day brings something new, which is great.

Thanks as always for checking in with the Janneys.
