Before we get to the news; it was such an honor to have Bill Frakes as my guest blogger yesterday, and I just wanted to give him a big thanks for kicking off 2010 with a bang!!!! Thanks Bill—that rocked!!! Now, onto the news:

The first great quote of 2010
It came from Seth Godin’s blog (which is a must-read daily blog from one of my favorite business authors), and here’s what Seth said that earned him my “First Great Quote of 2010″ distinction:

“When was the last time a bad guy was foiled because he couldn’t use a good camera to take a picture of a tourist attraction?”

Come on, you gotta love anybody that so “gets it” like Seth. Here’s the link to Seth’s blog.

My Photo Recipes DVD/Book is Sold Out!
Be careful what you wish for, right? I just announced my new “Behind the Scenes” book/DVD combo on Tuesday (shown above), and by Wednesday it was already sold out at Barnes & Noble, Borders, and Amazon (where it became the #117 most popular book of ALL books on Amazon.com). So, while the good news is that there seems to be lots of interest in this book, the bad news is that it’s already back-ordered for between one and two weeks at both Amazon and Borders, but right now Barnes & Noble.com has them back in stock, ready to ship (well, at least they did when I wrote this). You can also get on the backorder list at either Amazon.com or Borders.com.

D-Town is D-Layed
Ugh! The set is taking longer to build than we had planned, and although we all thought that today would be the debut of the new season of D-Town TV—-we were wrong. Looks like we’re going to have to wait for next week (So sorry about that—-it’s totally our fault. Every time I estimate how long a new set is going to take to build—I’m way off. Apparently, estimating building times is not my strong suit). So, thanks for hanging in there and being patient with us, and we’ll be looking (keeping our fingers crossed) for our launch next week. Double-ugh!

The New Season of Layers TV
Apparently RC and Corey are better at estimating their launch date than I am, as their new season of Layers TV (the weekly show about everything Adobe) just kicked off. You can watch it online right here. Congratulations guys! (but you are making me look bad). ;-)

I am so digging “Best SLR Camera.org”
A big shout-out and my thanks to “BestSLRCamera.org” who included two of my Digital Photography books in their “10 Best Photography How-To Books” list. Here’s the link.

That’s it for today folks
I had planned on putting some shots up today from my Lions/Bears NFL sideline shoot today, but I got tied up with some other stuff. Maybe tomorrow. In the meantime, I hope you guys have the kind of Thursday that feels like a Friday! :)
