WriteThat.name

Been using this cool address book service I read about on Cult of Mac a while back.  It’s called WriteThat.name.  It links to your gmail/google apps account and then scours incoming email for new or updated contact information.  You can then have it update your contacts automatically or manually.  I also used their Flashback service to look through all of my old gmail and pull any contact information out of that.

It’s really simple to setup and it saves me time searching my email for numbers I never put into a contact record and if people update information, my contacts are automatically updated as well.

Very nice service.  You should check it out here.

Our Family Trip to San Antonio

Last weekend my family went to San Antonio. We went to see my sister Madeline dance. It was so much fun. In San Antonio also went on a boat ride with a Guide.  He gave us so much great information about San Antonio. He showed us illusions, and great places to go. Also at the very end of our trip we got to go to the Alamo. I got great pictures and Mitchell my brother showed me all around. I love going so much I hope we go again.  That was my story about our trip to San Antonio. I hope you have a great spring break.

Singin’ in the Rain

Mitchell in Singin' in the RainIf you have not heard, with the help of many friends and more than enough support from my mom and dad, Madeline and I were able to put on a fantastic performance of Singin’ in the Rain at our school. I had a wonderful time of playing Gene Kelly’s Don Lockwood, acting with some of the best, being with my friends, and of course singing and dancing on our live rain stage. Who ever knew my tap dancing skills would come in handy six years later? Well and of course I had tons of help from Mary who choreographed the major tap numbers and was able to teach Me how to dance like a pro in 2 months. The Doerr family has dominated the stage once again while Mark and Mason not only took the lead roles in their own musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at their school, but were also one of the select few to play young Don and young Cosmo in Singin’ in the Rain at the high school level. The five of us make a pretty good team when we all work on one show. To see all of us in action, check out our up coming Christmas movie for the 2011 year. I hope you all enjoy. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

2011 Christmas Caper

How he does it? I have no idea, but my dad has once again produced a fantastic Christmas movie while dealing with all the craziness that goes on behind the scene with us. I hope that you all get a chance to check out us party rocking down the streets of Frisco square. You will also see our guest stars Uncle Mark and Aunt Loretta, Mckenzie Watson, as well as my co-star / tap dancing partner in crime Chris Floyd. I had tons of fun working with all my siblings. With some embarrassing moments and a little inspiration from all of us we sure know how to have a great time. With another movie of ours you can see the Doerr family travel to different music videos, Tv shows, and movies all in one, but I don’t want to give away to much. I hope that we have found a new way to capture your attention once again. 😉


 

Christmas at Home

Mitchell and Mason MSU it outYou can only imagine opening presents at the Doerr house!! Little goofballs running around with their new toys, presents everywhere and a whole lot of noise. I was glad to get clothes (especially my psych shirt), another Criminal Minds season, and it wouldn’t be Christmas with out Michigan items.

Have you ever seen a teenage boy where a Michigan State Spartan comfy throw in public? haha. Thank you grandma and grandpa Doerr for my gifts. The best part was getting to see my Aunt and uncle and filming with them.  Hanging out with them for a few days was a blast, especially at the rodeo, and better than anything I could have asked for.

2011 Christmas Caper – No Place Like Home!

Well…due to our vacation in mid December and the fact that my brother and his wife were joining us for Christmas this year, we decided to postpone shooting until after the 25th.

But that doesn’t mean that the video is not done and posted!

We worked out rear-ends off with an around-the-clock shooting schedule with our best (or cheapest) director/editor on the job to get this done before the new year…and we just made it!

This year the kids were working on script ideas when disaster strikes!  It has to be seen to be believed!

You can check it out on our youtube page www.youtube.com/doerrstop. The music company of the song we used won’t let it be used on mobile devices and set top boxes for some reason so until we come up with a solution, you have to watch it from your PC.  We are working on it now.

UPDATE: I’ve also uploaded it to Mobile Me for now so you can watch it on your iphone/ipad here.

Let us know what you think and like it on facebook and youtube!
