FEB 21 2020

I GOT SIDETRACKED--
BASIC PROBLEM  ---WE GOT THRU THE ADI ACCREDITATION... PRIMARILY PAPERWORK
 AND ALOT OF THAT PAPERWORK WAS TRYING TO  ACCERTAIN THAT THE DOG IS TRAINED..WHICH ... IN MY OPINION.....  AND YOU ALL KNOW WHERE THAT CAN GO.
SO I AM WRITING TO THE PRES/ COMMITTEE OF ADI  WITH SUGGESTIONS.
----DIFFERENT TOPIC---
 I RODE IN JUDY'S CAR TO THE FINE ARTS BUILDING/SCHOOL AND FOUND OUT 2 THINGDS...
JUDY CAN LOOK AT HER DASHBOARD WITH IT'S LITTLE TV SCREEN PACKED WITH INFORMATION  AND 100% LOCATE ONE  PIECE OF INFORMATION ON IT.... WHILE I AM STILL IN THE TOP LEFT CORNER READING THE INDIVIDUAL WORDS ... BROWSE.. AUDIO AND WORDS LIKE THAT. SHE HAS TEH WHOLE SCREEN VISUALIZED....  ... ALL THESE YOUNG PEOPLE DO..
THIS IS A SERIOUS DISCUSSION..
I CAN SIT HERE AND CURSE THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO SOUND ON MY COMPUTER AND DECIDE TEH CAMERAS MUST BE DOWN OR YOU TUBE IS NOT WORKING OR SOME OTHER 
IMPOSSIBELE REASON WHEN SOME YOUNG KID WILL SHOW UP AND IN ONE SECOND SAY "IT IS ON MUTE"

NOW I HAVE CLICKED THAT MUTE BUTTON 1000 TIMES BEFORE, BUT WHEN THEY SAY THAT , I START AGAIN TOP LEFT  /... BROWSE... AUDIO... I DO NOT SEE OR COMPREHEND THE ENTIRE SCREEN LIKE THEY DO..
I THINK THIS IS WHY I NEVER DID WELL AT THE PIANO OR BAND...- I KNOW WHAT ALL THOSE FUNNY DRIPPLETS MEAN-- BUT BY THE TIME I GET THRU  THE FIRST  2 INCHES... EVERYONE ELSE IS 1/2 THRU THE SONG.

 YOU CAN CALL I T DYSLEXIA OR WHATEVER YOU WANT... BUT   THERE IS SOMETHINGVERY DIFFERENT IN TEH WAY I SEE  SYMBOLS ON PAPER..

ANDTHE SECONE THING .. IS   
 I AM USED TO WALKING IN BIG PLACES LIKE TEH MUSEAM OF FINE ARTS... AND HAVING PEOPLE BE AMAZED AND  PLEASENTLY SURPRISED...WITH MY DOGS...
YESTERDAY I WAS TOTALLY IGNORED... BECAUSE THEIR "DOG" IS  OUR EYORE..  OF OUR POO LITTER...WANDERING ALL OVER THE PLACE .. NO LEASH OR COLLAR.. HAPPILY GREETING SECURITY AND EVERYONE HE KNEW AT THE CAFE--- AND EVEYRYONE DID KNOW HIM'''\  HE IS HUGE--- 36 INCHES TALL-- STILL YOUNG LOOKING...  BUT HUGE.
THE ONL;Y RESPECT I COULD SQUEEZE OUT OF THE SITUATION WAS TO TELL PEOPLE BENTLEY WAS EYORES FATHER.

georgetown fire dept got a key lime pie  for cake day-- ok  so we are  "cake-ing"  ?49 states???   which ones are we not in and can we get some action going there... ???
now here is a real party... napkins and paper plates even !!!

Tacoma Fire Department, Station 13, received the
SDP informational flyer, paper plates, napkins and
a yummy chocolate cake decorated with paw prints-- 
and  their department logo.  And in return I received
huge smiles and a big thank you. Cake Day is even
better than payday!
gimi/anon

from the raft of first responders.....i picked the fire depqrtment-- because... usually..they are a nice group of people who- after they get everuthing polished- and nothing is burning down, they have time  to eat cake... i also have found that the fire departments are a great source of big strong  fit , cheerful guys who when they are off duty, can lift , carry, and push  heavy objects around,  and cheaper than hiring handymen ( who around here are getting $85 an hour)-

- i have in my life called and said "i have a case of beer here for whoever gets that mattress into  the second floor bedroom."  . couple guys showed up at shift change....

i think you will find it true  that shirt sizes for policemen will range all the way to  XXXXL to cover  an expanse of beer belly.  shirts for firemen/women just are not made that big.  they are not needed.. in spite of all the cake we feed them.

that is one of thse laws i would pass....police uniforms may not be manufactured larger than XXL.
  a 2X  size guy is substantial enough to quell most disturbances that do not require the national guard...  ... i know if i have 2 or 3 policemen- size 2X  in my living  room, it is pretty full.  and they are always very nice. ---- they have  proceedires-- like to say "have a good day" as they hand you a  speeding ticket.

they are nice also because  i have been trained to do whatever they say and argure about it later... i was told that as a very young child.... "if a policeman says stop... you stop"  and i gave my kids that same lecture. it is a critical part of anyone's education --- person or dog.

a story......teh "ultimate whoa" - we had one in a assisted living place just last week... they wanted dogs to go around to all the rooms-- which is more walking than i can do..  they said there were no other dogs in gtehr building...so judy and janine took bentley and sizzle without leash  off behind closed doors... and i sat in the lobby--  first time in my current life i have been anywhere minus a dog...let alone an assisted living.-   so when the director came by and asked if i needed an application, i was horrified...i got over that.. and thru the door came a saint bernard young dog.. with "gentle leader and spike collar just about controlling  him...i knew  bentley and sizzle were about to come thr the doors... loose...  so i flew to put myself between that saint bernard and  those doors... just as they opened.. i yelled "WHOA RIGHT THERE"  sizzle stopped-- bentley got stopped -- and judy and janine froze too...  we could have had  the worlds biggest dog fight.
 that ultimate whoa can be so critical...

now before you lecture me on no leash-- when we do these places there are many suffering from altzeimers- and those people tend to grab and hold-- because  those 2 dogs have t hat ultimate WHOA, they are safer without something others can grab...

 HAPPY  TAKE A  CAKE TO FIRE DEPARTMENTS DAY---
------
w/r/t....the  POLICE   RAID  YESTERDAY.
here we go again.. it was a comedy ...   we have deer walking our fence line....night and day----  we have seen them- they are certainly enough to set our dogs to barking... but yesterday i happened to hear them start-- and it was a high pitched bark which sdp dogs just don't do-- so i assume coyotes-- next thing --- i am usually at computer by 5am-- phone rings ==  police department-- cruiser is in our driveway and  where can he find me...?  so he leaves teh cruiser blocking the drovew so when nurse #14  comes to quietly drive to the icu house  to leave her dog. she can not get in... she is on a schedule and does not want to be late for work  so she leaves her  car and runs teh dog  all the way to the icu house...   by now every dog on the property is alerting me to the fact tht  "unusual things" have interupteed their sleep.  that is just  when i am telling the policeman that the dogs are usually very quiet-- and he is explaing to me- there is a new law.....if they bark for 15 minutes between 10 pm and 6 am he is to write me a ticket...  but he won't this time/

i would like to shoot the messenger.. but that is pointless....so it is time to get out  BOTH THE  LAWYER AND the audiometer again. but i think the way this goes is  if there is a serious complaint, they need to document it-- which dog and how long....plus the decibel and distance formula where if you have to stop everything  to see if you can hear a dog bark over the noise a refrigerator makes,  and it upsets you, then  buying a house next to me was probably not a good idea. (OR A HOUSE NEAR A FOREST EITHER...)

so this morning i am keeping an exact log--- again....  bark... no bark,,,  someone is here all night... all it takes is paper... so we will document  it again...
they are basically lazy---  that constant yipping which kennel dogs sometimes do is just not happening here...  give them a reason.. and they will bark..  but they quit if at all possible.
----

now about life insurance-  for you newcommers,--- i was frightened out of my life insurance policy.....$200.000  paid on time--- all the time  cash value grpowing... until... i began to get noitices that it had no cash value-- it took months of letters to "no address" --- phone calls to d/c phone numbers finally i did get a letter once again saying it was worth $107,000-- and i could take that out if i wanted to...  of course i wnated to... a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush...  so i cashed it and felt fortunate---- now at the age of 79 that  ins company AGI basically saved $100,000  by getting rid of me before i died and they had to pay teh $200,000. and they had a $107,000 interest free loan from me.
---
keeping that in mind.......
i hear that ad  --" if you are between teh ages of 65 and 85 you can get life insurance for $10 a month-- and it can  never be canceled  as long as you pay your premiums... 
...it is that "AS LONG AS YOU PAY YOUR PREMIUMS"   THAT GETS ME.... i bet.....they are counting on you being sick for a month before your demise... and probably not paying that last premium  so they don t have to pay your relatives as you had intended...
my father had one for $10,000 and luckly my sister paid his bills for him--  if she had not... we would have missed a payment or two and would  have had no benefit.-- so if you hav one.. put it on auto pay from teh bank???????
---
intentional  errors surround us
remember also ... i bought a voting machine from florida-  with it's hanging chads...
it opened like a book  page 1 with a list of ones to vote for......a sliver of ibm card in the center and  a page 2 of more people to vote for
page 1 had   A..B..C..D.. and page 2 had  L..M...N...O 

so if i wanted to vote for  "B  " i poked  out the chad #2.
but then when i looked very closely  chad #2 was  intended for   "L" first one on second page.  as it zigg zagged back and forth
an unfortunate  design for presidential candidate "B" who lost many votes to "L"

teh business of designing  intentional errors is a booming business ...

TV GENERAL HAS TO WAKE ME UP AT 2 AM ONCE IN A WHILE TO BE SURE TEH EMERGENCY SYSTEM IS WORKING...\ THAT STARTED THE DAY....  WHICH WENT ON TO A POLICE CRUISER BECAUSE OF BARKING-- NEXT WIL BE ANIMAL CONTROL== SO I BETTER GET READY

A CP GAVE ME AN OFFICIAL SOUND DECIBLE READER.. SO I AM ON IT AGAIN  i must find a battery and get on it.

LIKE GRAVITY AND NEWTON's law  AND APPLES FALLING FROM TREES/// SOUND DIMINISHES OVER DISTANDCE-- WITH TEH FORMULA   EVERY TIME YOU DOUBLE THE DISGTANCE TEH  SOUND GOES DOWN 6 DECEBILES

PLEASE ALL YOU CP THAT ARE SCIENTIFICALLY INCLINED.... CHECK THAT OUT
BECAUSE... I THINK I HAVE PROVEN  THE FOLLOWING


 A DOG  loud BARK AT 2 FEET IS 90 DECIBLES
4 FEET 84.      8 FEET 78     16 FEET 72     32 FEET 66     64 FEET 60    AND 128 ...    54 
NOW PER THE SCIENTIFIC CHARTS   40 TO 50 DECIBLES IS "LIBRARY QUIET." 
NOW IF YOU HAVE TO STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO  ASK.... "IS THAT A DOG BARKING" 
AND IF YOU FIND THAT ANNOYING... YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE MOVED IN NEXT TO ME...

THESE DANES DO BARK OCASSIONALLY... BUT THEY ARE EXTREMELY QUIET..../ LAZY....
IF THEY BARK... THERE IS A REASON... LIKE A POLICE CRUISER IN THE YARD...
 WHICH PER MY AUDIO TESTER, IS MAKING MORE NOISE THAN THE BARKING IN THE DISTANCE.

EVERY TIME I HAVE TO GO THRU THIS-- IT COSTS SDP IN NUMBER OF DOGS WE CAN GET OURT TRAINED..
 TODAYS COMPLAINT IS NOT FROM  THE DEVELOPEMENT BUT IN FRONT OF ME
 RIGHT BETWEEN 2 PEOPLE WHOSAY THEY NEVER HEAR THE DOGS  bark

that is because they are not straining to hear them...

back to the study of sound...

STARTING WITH .. THE TV SAID THEY WERE SURE TEH FLU  NUMBERS WERE NOT RIGHT. WHICH THEY THEN PUT OUT ANYWAY...

i wish we could hear from our cp at the cdc about this  NEW virus--they had all sorts of numbers on tv-- somEthing about 60,000 peopLe now have it  AND 1500 HAVE DIED-- HOW DOES THAT  RATIO COMPARE TO THE  YE OLDE FLU -- SO I GOOGLED AND  ONE BUNCH OF NUMBERS OFTEN SEEN WERE   200,000 PEOPLE WILL BE HOSPITALIZED ON A NORMAL YEAR AND OF THOSE   5000 TO 20,000 WILL DIE THE 20 GOES WELL WTH THE 200--  WHICH IS ( I THINK) 1 IN 10 FOR A WORST CASE SCENERIO... AND IT DID TALK ABOUT A BACTERIAL INFECTON COMPLICATING THE FLU.  IF IN FACT  60,000 PEOPLE NOW HAVE THE NEW ONE.... WITH 1500 DIED..  THAT WOULD BE 15 PEOPLE OUT OF 600 OR 1 IN 40  WHICH IS NOT AS BAD AS A "NORMAL" FLU?????
MY CONCLUSION  IS ANY FLU IS BAD ENOUGH- SO DON'T LOWER YOUR RESISTANCE  UNNECCERILATRY-- LIKE ELECTIVE SURGERY???? AND RUNUP FLIGHTS OF STAIRS INSTEAD OF GETTING IN AN ELEVATOR.

DOWN WITH ELEVATORS... NOT ONLY BENTLY AND I GETTING ELECROCUTED B Y TEH KONE ELEVATOR AT TEH BOSTON SUBWAY, SYSTEM...., BUT THERE IS BELLA  IN HER SCHOOL'S ELEVATOR WITH GEORGE-- AND A FRIEND-- AND MINUS HER "ATTANDENT"  WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE WITH HER--IN THE SCHOOL ELEVATOR WHICH HAD BEEN INSPECTED-- AND REJECTED... BUT STILL IN USE...GETTING STUCK BETWEEN FLOORS AND BOOSTED OUT BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
THEN.... SOMEONE WAS HERE YESTERDAY WHO WAS  A SPECIAL ED TEACHER WHO SAID WHEN SHE USES THE SCHOOL ELEVATOR YOU GET A FUNNY SHOCK FROM THE BUTTON.  AND IT HAS BEEN THAT WAY FOR MONTHS..

SO LETS HAVE A SDP SPONSORED.. ELEVATOR INSPECTION STICKER CHECK--- YOU ARE STANDING THERE DOING NOTHING AND HAVE PLENTY OF TIME... THE INSPECTION CARD IS SUPPOSED TO BE  IN EACH "CAR" -- I FOUND TEH HOS[ITAL ONES WERE 3 MONTHS OVERDUE

 IF IT IS NOT..  GO FIND OUT WHY NOT   TOWN BUILDING INSPECTORS ARE ... I THINK... THE ONES RESPNSIBLE. IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE PHONE CALLS AND GET THESE  PUBLIC EMPLOYEES  ON THE BALL... THEY ARE RESPONSIBE FOR "OUR SAFETY"  WHICH TOO OFTEN RESULTS IN QALOT OF INBCONVENIENT REGULATIONS  WHICH WE MUST DO-- AND THEN THEY DONT DO THREIR PART
BUILDING INSPECTERS DO NOT RATE TOO HIGH IN MY REGARD... JUST IN CASE YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN THE "YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR LEQAGUE ... YOU ARE ONLY A WOMAN"    BECAUSE I WOULD NOT HIRE HIS BUILDER AND PUT UP THE WHITE ARENA INSTEAD...THINKING BACK.... I WISH I HAD MORE TIME TOFOLLOW THRUY WITH THAT ONE   BECAUSE HE SADDLED ME WITH A $27,000 SOIL COMPACTIONSTUDY ON A BUILDING THAT WAS MORE INCLINED TO GO  UP INSTEAD ODF DOWN...  HE IS NO LONGER IN IPSWICH...

 IF YOU ARE GOING TO PASS LAWS ABOUT ELELVATORS -- THEN IT BEHOVES THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO BE SURE THEY DO THER PART
HAVE FUN !!
-----
NOW IT IS ABOUT JANINE'S  MALE COW...-- BELIEVE ME ... I KNOW A COW IS A FEMALE THING.. BUT THIS GUY  IS A BOTTLE FED BABY , MINI BOVINE DRESSED IN A LOVELY PINK BLANKET  WE BELIEVE A ZEBU OR SOME SUCH...
AT ANY RATE SHE HAD TO LEAVE HIM WITH AN AMISH FARMER JUST TO GET THE  PAPERWORK FOR TRANSPORTING  BETEWEEN STATES.SO...   "ELVIS"  IS READY TO COME HOME NOW... AND TEH USUAL TRUCKER WILL NOT BE IN THAT AREA FOR ANOTHER COUPLE WEEKS.. SO SHE AND I DECIDED TO SEND DENNIS WITH MY CAR AND TRAILER TO GO GET HIM -- WHIDCH HE WILL DO TOMORROW... LEAVE TOMORROW AND DRIVE BACK ON WEDNESDAY--  

WE MUST GET THE GOATS AREEA READY TO RECIEVE THIS LATEST RESCUE...  SHE SAID HE WOULD LEAVE HIM HERE FOR A FEW DAYS  AND AFTER THAT PROBABLYH PUT HIM OVER ON MERIDITH FARM.. WITH MO....

PROJECT???? WE MAY TRY TO PUT SOME KIND OF BRASS BALLS ON HIS HORNS-- WHICH SHOULD LOOK GOOD AND PREVENT TEH OBVIOUS... ALTHO JANINE SAID HE NEVER TRIED TO USE THEM.  THEY DO STILL SELL HORN COVERS SOMEWHERE.... HAVE AT IT.;
----- 
AND MO.....NEEDS SOME SPECIAL ATTENTION ... SHE GOT IONTO PRICKER BUSHES AND HER TAIL IS SOLID BURDOCKS.. 
NEEDS SOMEONE TO GO PICK THEM OUT.
----
... FROM YESTERDAY'S CHORAL BIT
  whille you are googling the west point glee club.. notice -- they do not move... heads rigid.. hair100% CONTAINED... NO  NOSE RINGS ---NO TATOOS. JUST  CLEAN HEALTHY FIT PEOPLE...  HOW ODD.... I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE SOME OF THE WOMEN CADETS NOW HAVE A SIMPLE BUTTON PIERCED EAR= THAT USED TO BE NO...  BUT THE HAIR MUST NOT TOUCH THE SHOULDERS--- OR EVEN GET CLOSE... AND THE MEN ARE CREW CUT  MAYBE 1/2 INCH... WOMEN'S SKIRTS EVEN DISTANCE FROM THE FLOOR..... MUSIC HELD AT THE SAME ANGLE....  INTERESTING.... NOBODY DEMANDING TO BE AN INDIVIDUAL !!

what a difference a comma makes???????

here’s the   be;lla and george report
HELLO CARLENE
WE JUST RETURNED HOME FROM 5 DAYS IN DISNEY WORLD. WE SURPRISED BELLA WITH A TRIP BEFORE HER YEAR OF HAVING AT LEAST 2 SURGERIES SCHEDULED. IT WAS A MUCH NEEDED FAMILY TRIP. GEORGE DID WONDERFUL WITH THE CROWDS AND WALKED RIGHT NEXT TO BELLA IN HER WHEELCHAIR. WE DID A LOT OF RIDER SWAP AND TOOK TURNS WITH ED OR I WAITING WITH GEORGE SO EVERYONE COULD DO THE RIDES. THEY OFFER A KENNEL BUT WE DIDNT ATTEMPT IT BECAUSE HE LOVES HIS PEOPLE. HE DIDNT DO MANY RIDES MOSTLY BECAUSE OF HIS SIZE AND BELLA HAS DECIDED SHE ONLY LIKES ROLLER COASTERS NOW. THEY DID DO TOY STORY MANIA TOGETHER AND HE DID OK. NOW WE ARE HOME AND THEY BOTH SLEPT MOST THE DAY RECOVERING FROM THEIR BUSY TIME IN DISNEY.

Burton family

now does that mean bella---“she only likes roller coasters now”  becquse she hated them before and still do0es not LOVE them yet..... or has she decided to dislike merrygo rounds and only ride the coasters.

personally i would not pay anyone  good money to scare me-- getting up in the morning  is terrifying enough.. especially if i have the news on.

teh people to pay to get on a big boat  juSr to floAT AROUND THE OCEAN must have lost theri minds.
Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm doth bind the restless wave,
Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

KEEP IN MIND ANYONE SINGING THIS HYMN IS ON DRY LAND AND PRAYING FOR THE BENIFIT OF THE ONES ON THE BOAT/SHIP

APPARENTLY THE PERIOLS ON THE SEA IS A LEGAL DEFINITION.. LIKE SINKING.. WELL NOW THEY CAN INCLUDE SNEEZING.

THIS STARTED ME ASKING ALEXA TO PLAY  TEH NAVY HYMN- - AND AM REMINDED I LOVE CHORAL MUSIC.-- MOSTLY WEST POINT GLEE CLUB...HAVING GROWN UP VERY NEAR WEST POINT WHICH IS NOT ONLY A GREAT SOURCE OF ENGINEERS, BUT ELEVATED THE QUALITY OF AVAILABLE MUSIC IN THE HUDSON VALLEY REAGION.  THEY USED TO GIVE CONCERTS ( FREE BEACUSE OUR TAXES ALREADY SUPPORTED  THEM)  YOU CAN TELL ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN TO WEST POINT FOR SEVERAL  REASONS...  THEY CAN STAND ABSOLUTELY STILL FOR A VERY LONG TIME.  AND IF YOU SEE 2 OR 3 OF THEM WALING ACROSS THE FIELD,,, THEY ARE ALWAYS IN STEP...V AND IF YOU ARE WALKING WITH THEM  AND CAN NOT MATCH THERI STRIDE, THAT STRIDE BIT WILL DRIVE THEM NUTS
THAT  STRIDE MATCHING LASTS FOR 50 YEARS AND COUNTING.

I QUIT FOR THE DAY SO I CAN GO BACK TO TRYIJG TO FIND TEH WEST POINT GLEE CLUB RECORDING  I USED TO HAVE ( ON 3 RPM ) REMEMBER THOSE????
