FEB 16,2014
SHE WHO RAISES SNEAKER TO PUT ON FOOT WITHOUT ADDRESSING THE SOCK PROBLEM  IS GOING TO HAVE A COLORFUL DAY.
******
WE HAVE  LESS SNOW THAN PREDICTED... 
I AM NOT ABOUT TO CRITICIZE.. WE HAVE ANOTHER BLIZZARD  PREDICTED 4 MONTHS FROM TOMORROW......
AND THAT WILL BE IN JUNE.

IT WOULD BE TOTALLY UNAMERICAN TO  POKE FUN AT THE FARMERS ALMANAC.. YET REALLY..   YOU HAVE TO ADMIRE THE CREATIVITY OF ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO WOULD WRITE THAT "ABOUT THE 3RD OF TH E MONTH THER E WILL BE A SIGNIFICANT STORM.".. MONTH   AFTER MONTH AFTER MONTH.

YET WE HAPPILY LAMBAST THE TV WEATHERMEN  WHO SOMETIMES ARE JUST AS RANDOM
AFTER ALL... THEY HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING..
***********
A BUNCH OF....XXXXXX...... I FORGET... SCHOOL TYPE PEOPLE?  CAME TO LOOK OVER THE ARENA WITH THE IDEA OF  PUTTING UP ANOTHER 4 TIMES AS BIG IN  ...XXXXXXX.....  I FORGET THAT TOO.. MAYBE METHUEN?
ANYWAY-- THEY WERE IMPRESSED WITH THE STRUCTURE  AS I HAVE BEEN..

CLEARSPAN PUT IT UP   AND THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY THAN THE BUILDING INSPECTOR TELLING ME I WAS OUT OF MY LEAGUE I WAS ONLY A WOMAN....
THE COMPANY--- FARMTEK--- AKA CLEARSPAN  ---SENT THE BUILDING HERE-- FROM ?IOWA? IN 3 TRUCKS.
THEN THEY SENT A CREW FROM CONNECTICUT  .

NOW I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST CONNECTICUT.. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO HUGE AGRICULTURAL BUILDINGS I THINK THERE ARE MORE PER CAPITA IN IOWA THAN CONNECTICUT... I LOVE PROJECTS LIKE THAT... SO I WATCHED THEM... 

I KEPT WATCHING THEM BECAUSE THEY KEPT TELLING ME WHAT A FANTASTIC JOB THEY WERE DOING..  I AM LESS SUSPICIOUS OF THE GUY WHO SAYS "COUPLE MORE BOLTS AD IT MAY NOT FALL OVER..." LIKE POLITITIANS TELLING YOU WHAT A WONDERFUL THING THEY ARE DOING....  THINK TWICE... 
THAT WAS CLUE  #1... IT ONLY TOOK THEM A FEW DAYS WITH POWER NUT DRIVERS ETC...

AND THEN I REALLY LOOKED IT OVER.... ALL THOSE  X  CABLES... WERE EITHER TOO LOOSE... OR BARELY CAUGHT ONTHE SCREW ENDS... CLUE #2

SO I TOOK PICTURES AND SENT THEM TO  CLEARSPAN... IN IOWA.. WHO SENT ME A GUY WHO TOOK THE BUILDING DOWN AND PUT IT UP AGAIN HIMSELF  IN LESS TIME THAN THE CREW ..

THERE YOU HAVE THAT LESSON... WHATEVER IT IS... 
 BEWARE OF ONLY A WOMAN CARRYNG CAMERA????
OR HIRE THE BOSS TO BEGIN WITH...???

I HEAR THEY FIRED THAT CREW. MEANWHILE MY BUILDING HAS BEEN TERRIFIC..
************
  WE HAVE A HAM FOR SUNDAY STEW... AND SOME CAESAR  SALAD  DUE TO A TRAFFIC JAM THAT PUT MARIA IN FRONT OF SPINNELLI'S TERRIFIC TAKE OUT  -- INSTEAD OF COSTCO'S FOOD THAT SUSTAINS ...

******
STEVE #1 ( CHARLIE'S STEVE) IS DOING GREAT THINGS  IN THE PLOWING DEPARTMENT... NOW TODAY HE CAN HAVE A GO AT DOG DETAILS AND HELP MARIA...

HE SHOULD WORK INTO OUR LIFESAVER  ON WEAKENDS... 
******
SPEAKING OF LIFESAVERS... ANTHONY - NOT SURE WHERE HE CAME FROM-- BUT A VET WHO VOLUNTEERED TO PAT PUPPIES AND TO DO PLUMBING-- PUT A NEW FAUCET IN MY SINK SO I DON'T GET ANOTHER BLACK EYE.... I NEVER HAVE CUPS INTHE BATHROOM SO I  BEND AND DRINK OUT OF THE FAUCET..... THE OLD FAUCET MEANT IF I WAS NOT CAREFUL I HIT MY HEAD.. SO  HOME DEPOT SOLD ME ANOTHER HIGH RISER -- SO NO MORE BLACK EYES FOR THAT REASON ANYWAY...
**********
AND I AM WORKING ON THE ACCREDITATION

FYI--- AND THE SOB WHO ACCUSED ME OF IMPROPERLY SELLING DOGS INSTEAD OF MAKING THEM INTO SERVICE DOGS.....
STARTING BACK IN 
2009   WE HAD  13 PUPS  BORN AND 8 BECAME SD'S--- 61%
2010  5 OUT OF 8  ,.... 62%
2011   19 OUT OF 21     90%
2012  17 OUT OF 28  AND COUNTING.-- 60%  

I HAVE HEARD OTHER TRAINING ORGANIZATIONS USE NUMBERS LIKE 15 - 20%   WHICH  DOESN'T REALLY MATTER... WE ARE WHAT WE ARE
BUT  THAT IS VERY RESPECTABLE.   KEEP IN MIND THE PUPS  BORN IN 2012 ARE THE GRADUATES OF 2013 AND 2014  SO THOSE NUMBERS COULD GO HIGHER.
*******
]ENOUGH NONSENSE
GO TO WORK..

  1. "SOB" INDEED! THE ONLY OPINIONS THAT MATTER RE: OUTPUT ARE THE ACCREDITORS AND THE IRS. IF THEY SAY YOU'RE DOING WELL, NO ONE ELSE CAN SAY BOO. AND RE: TRAINING... FIRST, THE NEW CAMERA IS LABELED "ARENA CAM", NOT "TRAINING CAM", SO ANYONE WHINING ABOUT THAT NEEDS TO ADJUST THEIR EXPECTATIONS. SECOND, IF THE RECIPIENTS AREN'T RETURNING POORLY-BEHAVED DOGS, YOU MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT -- I BET THE NUMBERS OF *THOSE* ARE TELLING! SO ANYONE WHO THINKS THEY CAN DO BETTER, BE IT IN PRODUCTION OR ACCREDITATION, SHOULD GO START THEIR OWN PROJECT!

  2. IT AMAZES MY HUSBAND SOMETIMES, THAT I WILL TAKE PICTURES OF A JOB OR SUCH BECAUSE IT IS A CRAPPY JOB. THEN I NOTIFY THE COMPANY AND HAVE PICTURES TO BACK UP MY COMPLAINT- AND I GET RESULTS. YOU SHOWED THEM! CAN'T FIX WHAT THEY DON'T KNOW IS BROKEN.
    AS FAR AS DOGS GO, I DARE ANYONE TO ARGUE WITH THE RESULTS YOU HAVE FROM THE FOLKS WHO HAVE YOUR DOGS. I DARE THEM TO SAY YOU DON'T GET RESULTS. I BET IT'S THE WHEELCHAIR MANUFACTURES GRUMBLING COZ YOU ARE TAKING AWAY THEIR CUSTOMERS.

    PS; I LISTED YOU AS MY CHARITY IN THE PBR. (PRO BULL RIDING) FORD IS GIVING AWAY A NEW TRUCK TO ONE LUCKY WINNER, AND THAT WINNER CAN LIST A CHARITY AND THEY WILL WIN A NEW FORD VEHICLE. SO I LISTED SDP. YOU COULD ALWAYS GET THE VAN INSTEAD OF THE TRUCK. FINGERS CROSSED.
