APRIL 9 2014
I would like to extend a BIG thank you on behalf of the residents and staff of Intermissions. I am very very sad that we will no longer be seeing the Great Danes here at Brooksby but I also know that things change. I so enjoyed the visits all of these years and learned a great deal from all of you. The volunteers are amazing! Please extend a big thank you to those that I do not have on my e-mail list.
I wish you all the very best in everything. Please stay in touch.
Sincerely,
Pam Fialho

A NEW BROOKSBY  SECRETARY READ THE DIRECTIONS AND DISCOVERED WE NEEDED RABIES CERT ( NO PROBLEM) STOOL STUDIES- AND THE HANDLER HAD TO GO TO A VIDEO LECTURE OF  THEIRS ( USUALLY THAT IS HOW TO WASH  YOUR HANDS-- BEEN THERE-- DONE THAT ONE)   THEN HAVE SEVERAL VACCINATIONS...-- THE PEOPEL HAVE TO HAVE CURRENT VAC....  AND TB TEST... ETC..

WHOA... NOT ME...

WE HAVE A NEW VOLUNTEER WITH A RELATIVE THERE SO SHE IS FOLLOWING THRU WITH THAT.

***************
WELL, I CAN TELL YOU THAT IVY CONTINUES TO AMAZE BOTH DREW AND I AND EVERYONE THAT SHE MEETS.  ON FRIDAY, MARCH 28TH I HAD TO GO TO THE CAPE COD HOSPITAL FOR BACK SURGERY.  IVY WAS A REAL HIT WHEN WE WALKED INTO PRE-OP.  THERE HAD TO HAVE BEEN AT LEAST 20 PEOPLE (NURSES, ANESTHESIOLOGISTS, DOCTORS, ETC.) IN THE, WHAT I LIKE TO CALL, THE BULLPEN.  WHEN IVY AND I WALKED IN, EVERY SINGLE HEAD TURNED TO LOOK AT IVY.  SHE WAS A MEGA HIT.  SHE DID GREAT STAYING BY MY SIDE WHILE THEY DID ALL THE BLOOD WORK, IV'S, ETC.  IVY WAS SO GREAT DURING THE WHOLE PROCESS.  THE HARDEST THING FOR BOTH ME AND IVY WAS WHEN I WENT INTO SURGERY.  SINCE I GOT IVY AS MY SERVICE DOG, I HAVE NEVER BEEN SEPARATED FROM HER FOR THAT LONG (IF YOU CONSIDER 1 1/2 HOURS A LONG TIME).  ONCE I GOT INTO RECOVERY, SHE WAS THERE TO WELCOME ME.  HER WAGGING TAIL AND KISSES MADE ME SMILE.  SHE IS A TRUE GEM AND A GREAT TESTAMENT TO THE WORK THAT YOU, SDP, THE TRAINERS AND VOLUNTEERS DO.  I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL.

SHE MADE EVERYONE SMILE AT THE HOSPITAL.  I WISH I WOULD HAVE HAD SOME BUSINESS CARDS, I BET I COULD HAVE RECRUITED AT LEAST 10+ NEW PEOPLE TO THE SITE.  ALL THE NURSES WANTED TO BRING HER BOTTLED WATER AND JUST ADMIRE HER FOR WHO SHE IS.  THEY WERE ALSO SURPRISED TO LEARN THAT SHE WAS ONLY 16 MONTHS OLD AND SO WELL TRAINED AND SO WELL BEHAVED.  THE ANESTHESIOLOGIST JUST FELL IN LOVE WITH HER AT FIRST SITE.  WE LOVE THAT.  

MY GIRL, IS DOING GREAT THINGS AND YOU SHOULD ALL BE PROUD.  I KNOW I SURE AM.
************************************
THERE ARE SOME BIG PROBLEMS ON MY PLATE THAT I NEED TO DELEGATE---

*****FIRST BEING HEALTH PLANS--- WE HAVE 3 OR 4 PEOPLE WHO NEED COVERAGE OF SOME KIND---  MEGAN BEING ONE...  EARLENE IS THAT UP YOUR ALLEY??


AND THEN---
***** THE WASHING MACHINE WATER...
THERE ARE WAYS OF REUSING THE RINSE WATER IN THE NEXT LOAD--- ANY OF YOU CAMERA PEOPLE CAN LOOK INTO THAT....AND GIVE ME THE RESULTS OF YOUR FINDINGS  ALL DONE UP IN A PACKAGE I CAN UNDERSTAND...  WE  ARE USING TOO MUCH WATER-- THE GROUND WILL NOT TAKE IT-- AT LEAST TIL WE DRY OUT... ??IN MAY-JUNE?? 

*****SOMEHOW AAA MOVED THE COA VAN-- AND NOW I NEED THE SAME GUY TO GO GET THE ONE JOYCE HAS DONATED... AND I DON'T HAVE HER ADDRESS???????  OR THE TRUCK GUY EITHER??  I NEED A VOLUNTEER WHO IS HERE ON THE PROPERTY  TO SOLVE THAT ONE.  WHO IS HERE TODAY???

*****
AND THEN  THER E IS HOMELESS SHELIA---  THERE IS SOMETHING SCREWY GOING ON WITH THESE REAL ESTATE PEOPLE
THE FIRST MOVE IN TOMORROW HOUSE THEY WANTED GOT TAKEN OFF THE MARKET- AFTER CONSIDERABLE EFFORT
THEN THERE WERE 2 MORE SHE HAD APPTS TO GO SEE THE INTERIOR AND THE APPTS GOT PUT OFF- 

I AM VERY SUSPICIOUS BY NATURE IN THE FIRST PLACE-- BUT IF SHE AND BRIAN ARE GETTING JERKED AROUND BECAUSE THEIR REALATOR  CAN'T MAKE A DEAL WITH ANOTHER WHO MAY HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE... OR SOME  OTHER  MONEY ASSOCIATED PROBLEM WITHIN THE RE COMMUNITY, I AM VERY READY TO BLOW THAT COVER .

IN WANDERING AROUND INTHE RE BUSINESS--- I STARTED TALKING TO ONE WOMAN-- WHO SEEMS REASONABLE
-- ( THEY ALL DO... I KNOW THAT..)   BUT THIS ONE HAPPENS TO HAVE A HOUSE FOR SALE NEXT TO OUR ARENA-- SO IF SHE GIVES ME SH#T, I WILL GO MOVE THE MANURE PILE RIGHT BEHIND THAT HOUSE...  SO IF SHE CAN NOT GIVE ME AN UNCOMPLICATED ANSWER... THE TRACTOR WILL BE OPERATIONAL--- IT WOULD TAKE ME ABOU A HOUR TO SCREW UP THAT SALE. 

A THREAT????? NAWWWW

I REMEMBER... A CASE HERE IN TOPSFIELD  WHERE  THERE WAS A WIERD RE DEAL GOING SOUR AND AN OWNER OF AN ADJECENT PROPERTY HAD A LOAD OF SHRIMP SHELLS DELIVERED TO SPREAD AS AN " EXPERIMENTAL FERTALIZER"  THAT STUNK FOR MONTHS.  IT WAS VERY EFFECTIVE.  CREATIVITY WON ONCE AGAIN.

*********
I NEED MORE SUPPORTIVE ROPES HANGING AROUND... I AM REALLY HAVING TROUBLE WALKING  EARLY IN THE MORNING -- OR LATE IN THE DAY-- SEENG AS I NAP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY-- IT DOESN'T LEAVE MUCH TIME I DON'T NEED ROPES.

I HAVE SOME MADE AND DID DYE THEM PURPLE... BUT I NEED TO TEST THEM-- OR  JUST RINSE THEM OUT A FEW TIMES TO GET RID OF THE EXTRA PURPLE DYE...  JUST ANOTHER DETAIL
***************
AND THE EGGS....   THE NATIONAL EGG BOARD  WAS THE ONES THAT TOLD ME YOU CAN NOT BOIL A FRESH EGG AND HAVE IT PEAL WELL.. BEING A GOV'T AGENCY I WAS INCLINED TO BELIEVE ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPORTED BY MY TAXES..
  
AND THEN MEGAN'S NEW HELPER TOOK A DOZEN EGGS  HOME AND CAME BACK WITH DEVILED EGGS.. PRETTY TIDY ONES TOO....( SHE BEING  ONE OF THE  THE BOIL-PLOP IN ICE WATER - PEOPLE)   MEGN SWEARS THE EGGS WERE FRESH..  SO YESTERDAY  I HAD A BU NCH ONLY A WEEK OLD-- ACCORDING TO TH E LABEL SOMEONE LEFT ON THE BUCKET OF EGGS...  10 MINUTE BOIL-- PLOP IN VERY COLD WATER.. AND THEY DID NOT PEAL PERFECTLY ... BUT DARN NEAR....

THIS NEEDS MORE INVESTIGATION---IT MAY BE A CASE ONCE AGAIN OF THE NATIONAL STATISTICS HAVING GONE ASTRAY.

BUT AS I DID THAT -- I WAS REMINDED THAT THERE IS A LREADY A HOOK IN THE KITCHEN TO HOLD A ROPE-- INSTEAD OF THE PLASTIC BAGS WHICH RESIDE THERE NOW...
******
 I AM HAVING TROUBLE STANDING/BALANCING...  AND BENTLEY IS TOO WILLING A HELPER AS HE COMES THRU THE DOOR LOOKING FOR ---#1.. A GIRLFRIEND  OR #2  SOMEHING TO EAT.

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

 AND THEN THERE IS A PROBLEM I AMD GOING TO HAVE TO SOLVE... UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE FORGOTTEN WHAT THAT  IS... BUT  IT WILL COME BACK TO ME.. ... AS I SIT DOING THE  ACCREDITATION PAPERWORK...
******
AH HA  !!!!  I KNEW I WOULD REMEMBER....
I HAD A CALL FROM SUSANNA WHO'S FAMILY  LONG AGO  DONATED $7500 WHICH GOT ME STARTED... THEY HAVE JUST DONATED $6000 FOR THE WALKIN FREEZER PROJECT...

THAT IS WHY I HAVE TO SOLVE IT.. THERE ARE MANY PIECES TO THAT-- INCLUDING  NOT ONLY THE FREEZER BUT A CONCRETE PAD FOR THE FREEZER AND  STEVES "CUTTING ROOM"   AND THE WHITE WASHABLE WALLS LIKE TH E ONES IN THE DEAGLE HOUSE-- FROM FARM TEK  --- AND THE OVERFLOWING WATER JUST WHERE I WANTED TO PUT THIS... SO  JEFF MASTERSON HAS TO COME TO MAYBE PUSH DIRT AROUND BEFORE THE CONCRETE...

IT IS COMPLICATED

SO ON WE GO???

  4. Use Oldkbadgers method with 1 tablespoon of salt for each dozen eggs. Works every time!

  5. "FRESH," AS IT APPLIES TO EGGS IS RELATIVE. EGG PRODUCERS CAN STORE EGGS IN THEIR FACILITY FOR UP TO A MONTH BEFORE SENDING THEM TO STORES AND THEY STILL, BY REGULATION, CAN BE CALLED "FRESH."

  6. I got a hint from a friend to steam my eggs in a basket steamer instead of boiling them. The shells come off perfectly every single time no matter the age of the egg!
