This makes watching video a lot more fun! Check it out and let me know what you think.

Another Only Connect photo for the Charles Shaughnessy Blog!

Thank you Jeff in West Virginia for this everyday image of connection. Just being human with each other can sometimes be the most difficult connection of all.

Remember my friends, Only Connect!

Play poker with Charles Shaughnessy to raise money for the 1736 Family Crisis Center!

Thank you for all your kind words about my Jeopardy win! It was all a bit of a blur. It's one thing to sit smugly at home, yelling at those idiots on the TV, who don't know nuthin', quite another to actually BE one of those idiots! The pressure is intense and the simplest things just fly out of your head. Of course David knew Colonel Sanders, it's just once your mind starts going down one track up there, it is impossible to say " Whoa!" that's a blind alley, let's try something else. Anyway, I am so glad I pulled it off for 1736. They are an amazing bunch of people who do wonderful things for so many desperate people. I have visited one of the shelters a few times now ( in fact we watched the show together there,) and I was most pleasantly surprised at how happy the kids are despite their recent trauma. That's because they are so well taken care of. I asked one what her favorite thing about being at 1736 was: she said, being able to close my eyes at night without being scared of being hurt.

Please check them out at this link and, if you are in town and available on April 3rd. ( and fancy yourself a bit of a card-sharp) come play some poker to raise funds for such a worthy cause.

Just remember my friends, ONLY CONNECT!

Another year over....

To all of you who wished me a Happy Birthday...Thank you! I really felt a bit like Jimmy Stewart at the end of "It's a Wonderful Life!"All I was missing were ZuZu's petals! It was a very warm and fuzzy feeling having so many nice thoughts sent to me by so many nice people.
This is going to be an exciting week as I make my Celebrity Jeopardy appearance on Thurs. 18th. Feb. I play against David Duchovny and Chris Matthews and I can promise you a tense and exciting game that goes all the way down to the wire! I'm afraid it is only available in the US, but, who knows, these things have a habit of popping up on the web sooner or later.

We are also getting close to launching our new online video business: StyleMouse

We hope to launch it onto the unsuspecting public on Friday March 5th. You will be able to watch and "click on" our first interactive videos. We start off with a series on the vibrant and exciting shopping mecca , Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA. For the first time you can watch a video and, if you like something you see, you can "click" your mouse on it and either get info or purchase it right there and then!!! Pretty cool stuff!

The Canadian part of my Shaughnessy blood is very proud this week. They are putting on an excellent Games despite an extremely uncooperative Mother Nature. It has become must-see late night TV in my house.


Finally, I want to let you know about a contest, (well, not really a contest,) we want to run. People have asked me about the significance of the photo in the title of this blog. It is a photo I took some years ago and just seemed appropriate for the title: Only Connect. What we want is for you to send your photos that say the same thing to you. Only Connect. It is open to all kinds of interpretation and creativity, so go for it!

Send your photos to:

Be sure to include the City and Country you are from or the City and State if you are in the US. If you have a Facebook page and/or Twitter page, please send a link to those as well when you send in your photos so we can 'tag' you and link to you if we post your photos. (unless you want to remain anonymous, then please tell us!!) Please only submit photos that you personally take . . do not submit anyone else's photos.

From time to time I will put my favorites up on the blog. Sound good?
OK, that's all for now. We'll talk again soon.

Only connect, my friends!
