MAY 7, 2013

I AM NOT THRU WITH THE CAMERA DISCUSSION.

CAMERAS CHANGE WHAT I WANT THE ATMOSPHERE TO BE.-
THE ODD CELL PHONE PICTURE IS FINE-

IT IS THE VIDEO CAMERAS WITH AUDIO THAT I DON'T WANT TO BE USED HERE.

I SPECIFICALLY SAID LONG AGO-- NO AUDIO- MY GUESTS HERE HAVE NOT SIGNED IN FOR A TV APPEARENCE-
NEITHER HAVE I.. AND I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT IS BEING SAID-- OR MY SALTY LANGUAGE.

FIRST----
I WAN T PEOPLE TO COME HERE AND ENJOY WHAT WE HAVE WITHOUT LIMITATION-- PEOPLE ARE WELCOME TO WANDER ALL OVER - AND RELAX.---- IT IS SOOO CRITICAL TO THESE PTSD VETERANS WHO COME HERE.

THAT IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THAN THE ATMOSPHERE OF THIS FARM BEING A TOURIST SPECTACLE/OR SET OF SOME TV SHOW.

... TO SEE THE LITTLE PUPS CHASING MEGAN UP THE DRIVEWAY IS SUCH A JOY-- AS LONG AS THERE ISN'T SOMEONE WITH A CAMERA JOGGING BEHIND THEM..

I DO NOT WANT THAT. .

SECONDLY--- I WORRY

IT MIGHT NOT BE A CAMERA PERSON TO PULL THIS... BUT ....

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO COULD USE A PHOTOGRAPH OUT OF CONTEXT ---TO MAKE MY LIFE MISERABLE- LIKE BAILEY'S WOUNDS FROM THE DOG FIGHT....THE NUMBER OF DOGS IN MY HOUSE... HUGE PILES OF DIRTY LAUNDRY- THE MANURE PILE- ALL COULD BE USED TO SEND A RAFT OF PEOPLE DOWN MY THROAT.

 I DO NOT NEED THAT.

 WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE CHAN 9 TV CREW COMING TO DO A STORY ON TEAL, LEAVE YOUR CAMERAS HOME.

SAVE THEM FOR WHEN YOU COME HERE IN OCTOBER.

IN THE MEANTIME--- ENJOY CAMERA MARKS PHOTOS BY LAST COUNT HE HAS 43,000 PICTURES FROM HERE.

AND LAST WEEKEND'S http://servicedogproject.shutterfly.com/pictures/17256 has 242 pictures some of them WITH SANTA ARE PRICELESS.
 
FOR YOUR AMUSEMENT, AS I MOVE THE HOUSE CAMERA AROUND I WILL TRY AND SWING IT AROUND TO GIVE SOME PERSPECTIVE TO THE ENVIRONMENT--- THAT WILL HAVE TO DO....I CANNOT HAVE ANY VIDEO TAKEN HERE- IT IS JUST TOO INVASIVE

******************
BACK TO GENERIC EVERY DAY PROBLEMS
I AM TOLD THE HAWK DETERANT AROUND THE PUPPY AREAS RESEMBLES A USED CAR LOT WITH IT'S SHINEY STREAMERS AND PINK FLAMINGOS.... COMPLIMENT OF SOME CAMERA PERSON/

HEY--- THEY WORK --- WE HAVE NOT SEEN MR AND MRS HAWK SINCE WE PUT THEM UP.

ALSO THE PUPS ARE GETTING BIGGER. I IMAGINE IF A HAWK TRIED TO PICK ONE UP AND FOUND HE COULDN'T , IT WOULD STILL BE DEVASTATING TO THE PUP...

**********

WE ARE GETTING ORGANIZED. WE ARE FIXING SOME OF THE PROBLEMS WHICH WERE POINTED OUT TO US BY OUR GROWTH AND LACK OF FORMAL GUIDELINES--

BOY HOW I HATE THE MONSTER OF PAPERWORK WE--- I ---- NOW FACE- AND HAVE TO -- BECAUSE OF THE GROWTH/ NUMBERS OF DOGS AND PEOPLE INVOLVED. I AM STILL NOT HAPPY ABOUT OUR APPLICATION PROCESS..-- AND I HATE FORM LETTERS, BUT WE ARE TO THE POINT OF HAVING TO SAY TO SOME " YOU MAY APPLY, BUT THE PROBILITY OF GETTING A SDP DOG IN THE NEXT 2 YEARS IS MINISCULE." ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE NOT A VETERAN- BUT EVEN THT DOES NOT HOLD TRUE... SOMETIMES A PERSON COMES ALONG TO OUR SUNDAY STEW AND A LOOSE DOG WILL GRAVITATE TO ONE PERSON- AND IT LOOKS LIKE A MATCH... AND SHOULD BE... SO HOW DO WE COPE WITH THAT--- PAPER WISE???

WE HAVE ABOUT 2 INCHES OF APPLICANTS - ALL SIZES SHAPES AND DIAGNOSIS-

************
ALONG WITH THE BLESSED ATTORNEY GENERAL'S PC FORM.

THAT IS TODAY'S MUST DO. THE 990 WITH IT'S ELIMINATION OF A SDP TANNING SALON- IS ALREADY DONE-- AND PART OF THIS PC THING.

 NOW THAT WE ARE BIGGER-- WE NEED NOT JUST A CPA-- BUT A SPECIAL CPA WHO CAN DO CHARITY PROGRAMS.---- SPENDING MONEY ON THAT REALLY IRKS ME... WE DONATE THESE DOGS-- AND TO PAY $3000 TO HAVE SOME ONE WAVE THIER HAND OVER OUR QUICKEN BALANCE SHEET IS NUTS.... WE ARE SKATING ALONG WITH THE BARE MINIMUM SPENT ON OVERHEAD. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY COULD INSIST WE CHANGE.

I DID SPLURGE AND BUY SOME GARDEN HOSE TO WATER THAT FLAT FIELD-- IT IS SUCH A GOOD PLAY FIELD- AND WE HAVE THE WELL RIGHT THERE- WE NEEDED HOSE AND SPRINKLERS-

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

THE CONCEPT OF A NEW TIPI COVER IS MY PERSONAL EXPENSE- EVEN THO WE MAY USE IT IN OCTOBER IF ANYONE WANTS A TRUE CAMPING EXPERIENCE--

IF ANYONE WANTS TO GET INVOLVED IN THAT DISCUSSION ... THE BIBLE IS GLADYS LAUBIN'S(sp?) BOOK ON TIPI'S AND THE OUTFIT THAT MADE MY OLD ONE IS TIPI.COM -- they made thE ONES FOR DANCES WITH WOLVES.-- BEAUTIFUL TIPI'S ...YEAR ROUND HOUSING THAT CAN BE PUT UP BY A WOMAN IN AN HOUR....

THAT IS TRUE FOR AN INDIAN WOMAN--- I TOOK A LITTLE LONGER.

WE ONLY NEED THE COVER.. WE HAVE THE POLES ALREADY STANDING...

 PROBLEM IS THE COVER REALLY HAS TO BE DECORATED-- AND THERE, THE DISCUSSION GETS WILD... HAVE A LOOK TIPI.COM

 *************

I LOVE MY NEW 3 X 6 POO PICKERS WITH THE COMMENTS ON THE BACK... JUST A LITTLE EXTRA CHEER AT THAT JOB IS WELCOM.E.

AND ALL STAFF / VOLUNTEERS SHOULD HAVE THIER OWN SUPPLY OF PICKERS IN THEIR BACK POCKETS

THAT IS THE FIRST ITEM IN EVERY JOB DESCRIPTION " IF YOU SEE IT -- PICK IT UP AND BAG IT." S THE MOST IMPORTANT CHORE.

THE CONCEPT IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE CONCEPT OF WHICH GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION IS MOST CRITICAL TO YOUR DAILY LIFE?

THE CONGRESS OR THE TOWN'S WASTE DISPOSAL

WE COULD NOT MAINTAIN CIVIL SOCIETY IF THE TRASH IS NOT PICKED UP FOR A WEEK.

ON THE OTHER HAND CONGRESS HAS BEEN OUT TO LUNCH FOR 17 YEARS AND COUNTING.
******************
TODAY

SHELIA PROMISED TO TAKE ME OUT FOR AN AIRING

GINGER IS HEALTHY AFTER HER SURGERY AND WILL RETURN TO THE KENNEL

 AND HERE IS THE FLOW CHART OF HOW TO MANAGE THIS PROJECT
 

 





I CAN NOT SEE the small print

  1. Since you are a non-profit organization, possibly some accountant would be willing do donate all or part of their fee to the cause! It's such a good cause! Possibly even a fellow vet? Since it seems that veterans take a priority with you. Perhaps if you contact the local vets organizations you might find a source. I hope so. That is an awful expense on top of the 'normal' day to day running costs of your organization.

    Any volunteers reading this?

  2. That's a great suggestion by Bubblankatt. And if they won't donate their fee maybe they would give you a hefty discount. $3000 is a lot of money.

    A reporter is coming to tak about the Teal situation. Is that the bulying issue? I hope so. A friend of mine is going through a bullying problem with her daughter who is 1 of the targets of another girl at her middle school. She has gone through the channels and the teachers are doing nothing. So she is changing schools next year. Very sad situation in our schools.

  3. I believe an accountant would do more than wave their hand over your Quicken balance sheet for $3,000. If that's all they do, then you need to find another accountant.

    1. It's not just an accountant needed but a CPA who specializes in Charity accounts that they need, if I read it right.

      Wouldn't be surprised if it is supposed to be someone who was "recommended" by the Attorney General. :p

    2. I undertsand that it has to be a CPA who specializes in charity accounts. And if you pay then $3,000 and they do nothing more than wave their hand over your Quicken balance sheet, then you still need to find another accountant that specializes in charity accounts.

      How many accountants who specialize in charities gave a quote of $3,000? Two? Four? You have to shop around and don't forget that you get what you pay for. Backyard Barney with the certs may get you a costly tax audit.
