MAY 5, 2013


I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD TAKE 2 CARTONS OF PAPER A MONTH TO TRAIN DOGS... IN OUR PAPERLESS SOCIETY.-

ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS TRAIN DOGS IN THE MALL SO I DIDN'T HAVE TO GO OUT IN THE COLD.

WHEN SHELIA OBRIEN CAME TO INSPECT FOR THE ADI ACCREDIATTION- SHE TOLD ME I WOULD JUST HAVE TO DO SOME THINGS I THOUGHT--- NEVER --- AND HERE I AM

SHELIA WAS MAINSTAY BEHIND NEADS - SHE HAD LONG RED FINGERNAILS- AND KNEW VERY LITTLE ABOUT DOGS, BUT WAS A \FANTASTIC BUSINESS WOMAN

****

I REMEMBER MY FIRST MEETING WITH SHELIA ABOUT THE ACCREDITATION PROCESS... I TOOK THUMPER WITH ME- AND A 3X5 INDEX CARD-- I FORGOT A LEASH/COLLAR SINCE I HARDLY EVER USED ONE, THE ONLY THING I COULD FIND IN THE CAR TO FULFILL THE LAW OF ... ON LEASH ... WAS DENTAL FLOSS.

SHELIA ARRIVED WITH TRAINER - SHE HAD 6 INCHES OF LOOSE LEAF NOTEBOOKS- AND A DOG ON A GENTLE LEADER ( WHICH I HATE)-- SHE ALSO RAN NEADS WITH A 4 MILLION DOLLAR BANK ACCOUNT AND I USED GREEN STAMPS TO GET THE GAS TO DRIVE AND MEET HER.

AT ANY RTE TO BE ACCREDITED SHE SAID I HAD TO LOOK MORE LIKE A BUSINESS- IN SPITE OF THE SUPER TRAINED DOGS I HAD.

IT MAKES ME EXTREMELY ANNOYED TO ADMIT SHE WAS RIGHT.

***

ON MY DESK IS A BUNCH OF PAPERS --PC FORM ---FROM THE MASS ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE WITH WHOM WE MI\UST BE REGISTERED.

I HAVE TROUBLE TAKING IT SERIOUSLY BECAUSE WHEN WE STARTED 10 YEARS AGO I JUST PLAIN IGNORED THE AG-- UNTIL ABOUT 5 YEARS LATER AND I NEEDED AN---- AG'S NUMBER--

AGAIN - WITH THUMPER WITH ME I WENT TO THE AG OFFICE-- THEY LOVED THUMPER..., THEY EXPLAINED THEY DIDN'T MIND THAT I HAD NOT DONE 5 YEARS WORTH OF FORMS -- FOR $15 EXTRA I COULD JUST FILE THEM AT THE MOMENT-- THERE IN THEIR WAITING ROOM.

I REMEMBER THE DAY--- IT INVOLVED SIGNING MY NAME 147 TIMES- BY ACTUAL COUNT.

SO I SENT OFF THIS YEAR'S PC JUST TO SEE IF IT WOULD FLY..

AND THEY HAVE SENT IT BACK WITH A BUNCH OF THINGS I NOW MUST DO..

THE OLD $15 IS NOW $70---- BUT THE WORST THING IS WE HAVE TO HAVE AN ACCOUNTANT REVIEW THE BOOKS- WHICH IS NOT ALL THAT BAD... EXCEPT - IT HAS TO BE A SPECIAL ACCOUNTANT WHO DOES CHARITY ACCOUNT REVIEWS- WHICH I AM TOLD IS $3000


IS THERE ANYONE ON THIS EMAIL /CAMERA LIST WHO COULD HELP US WITH WHATEVER THIS CPA REVIEW REPORT IS?

THE OFFICIAL SDP BOOKS ARE WHATEVER REPORT QUICKEN WILL PRODUCE.. IT IS NOT ALL THAT COMPLICATED..


NOT COMPLICATED UNTIL YOU GET INTO HAVING TO PROVE SERVICE DOG PROJECT DOES NOT RUN A TANNING SALON ( QUESTION 14 ON THE IRS 990) THE 990 HAS TO GO WITH THIS PC FORM...

*****************

ALL OF THIS HAPPENED JUST AS MY DAUGHTER GWEN WAS TAKING SOME /COURSE/TEST TO BECOME A PMP (SOMETHING ABOUT PROJECT MANAGEMENT) TO THAT END SHE MADE A FLOW CHART/ DIAGRAM TO DESCRIBE THE LOGICAL PROCESS OF TRYING TO RUN A BUSINESS. .... ON 16 SHEETS OF PAPER 36 X 24.. AN EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY

OF HOW TO "KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID"--

ONE GOAL TODAY IS TO TAPE THAT UP IN THE ARENA AND GET MARK TO PHOTOGRAPH IT..

I HAVEN'T A CLUE WHAT IT ALL SAYS- BUT IT IS COLORFUL WITH IT'S MAGIC MARKERS OF DIFFFERENT COLORS.

************************

WHAT IT BOILS DOWN TO -- IS--- WHEN RUNNING A PROJECT, IT IS NECESSARY TO HAVE PEOPLE SIGN THEIR NAME FOR EVERYTHING YOU EXPECT THEM TO DO-- AND HAVE THAT FORM DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO THE PAYROLL DEPARTMENT.

GEORGE MYERS HAS SEVERAL PIECES OF PAPER LIKE THAT AROUND THE VET OFFICE.. AND OUR MED SHEET IS NOT ALLTHAT DIFFERENT.

 PROBLEM IS ... I MUST CHECK IT REGULARLY--

WE MIGHT HAVE TO MOVE IT TO IN FRONT OF THE COFFEE MAKER. SOMEHOW WE WILL FIGURE THIS OUT.

MARIA'S HEAD WORKS LIKE THIS

SHE IS WELL EDUCATED--BY HER 5 KIDS..
********************

SO THIS IS SHATUPON SUNDAY

MARK HAS OFFERED TO COOK

2 CP"s ARE HERE (THAT IS CAMERA PERSONS) IN THE GUEST CABIN--- I THINK...

WE HAVE A NEW BLOWER SO THE PLACE IS BLOWN CLEAN--

TODAY'S CROWD WILL BE ASKED TO DO A GATHERING OF THE PINE CONES.. -- THE FLAT FIELD HAS BARELY ANY GRASS-

THE NUMBERING OF THE TABLE WILL TAKE PLACE AT 2:45 AND THE DELIVERY OF THE SH#TTERS WILL BE AT 3:00-

HOPEFULLY THE PUPPY HILL CAMERA WILL FOLLOW THAT--

WE WILL PUT THE NUMBER OF THE NEW SHATUPON SOCIETY MEMBER IN FRONT OF THAT CAMERA-- MY PERSONAL GIFT TO FOLLOW.... WITH THE CERTIIFICATE OF MEMBERSHIP.


AND SO IT GOES
