june 22 2015
thanks to those who have explained to me that it is possible to complain to amazon about loading my ipad with books in which i have zero interest...  the  books they are choosing for me is another very upsetting   topic....  books about the tooth fairy  and   steam engines.  what piece of information is stuck somewhere which is causing some computer to decide i should  read about those things. 

miracles of modern tech  are terrifying to me...months ago my daughter looked at some kind of shoes on ebay-- that info is stuck somewhere qnd now i get all kinds of info on wierd shoes... along with trains,..... again  a typo instead of training, and now i get piles of choo choo type train informanton.. and my computer talks to  my phone - which talks to my car- so heaven knows what my car is thinking...  it keeps playing the latin version of  the  Ave Maria-- for about a month now.  i feel so helpless being told to ignore it.  the ave maria is not a substitute for broadway show tunes...

well..... i do have a question  about one concept on trains....
why do train companies spend so much money on prime time ads about coast to coast train lines hauling letuce and new cars-  just who are they trying to reach and why???   also one ad says something about moving produce for 50 cents a mile--  that has to be the brainstorm of some mathmetitian who said " tell me what you want to say and i wll find a way to have the statistics match"

statistics 101-  the first thing you learn... you can nearly lie about anything....the growth rate and the rate of growth are wonderful for teh political writers- one can be up- the other down- depending on which word you want the public to hear.  it is very annoying.

 back to the dogs...

yewterday we managed to have moriah and opal loose all afternoon without incident...  they keep thier eye on each other -- there is no tru=st between them--- the only thing to distract them is for me to pick up the whiffle bat... then they both look at me.
*****
bud managed to  install a horn on my golf cart... it is a good one. !!!  i will try and demo it at before mail call...

*****
i have a couple dogfest things to resolve today per tina's request...
one is teh food-- and i already forgot the other...
*****
the new tables -- which i think you can see from the puppy hill camera, have one coat of polyurethane-- and will get another when the humidity drops... today  so far  it is like walking thru a pond.. 
*****
todays big push will be to sresolve the fact that   1.  we need to get the extra camera down out of the tree  and it iw way way up there...  climbing type  way up there...
and  2.  there are about 6 dead  trees threatening  one building or another.. the nutt house being the worst  one--- the gt is another--not to mention theo 3 that would close off the driveway if they came down on their own....

so i called the outfit who took down the big trees from puppy hill which i then had  lumber milled so i could build the t-tent...--  they were huge 90 foot  trees- and as teh  younger man was preping for the fall, i stood with " the old guy" and asked him to mark where the top of the tree would fall- he drew a line in the sand- and was off by about 4 inches... he was goooood.

at the same tiem i hope i can get the dead limbs out of the pine trees while they are here...  the place loo ks so much better when they are cleaned up--  there are some big limbs that could hurt  so it is  not all cosmetic.  you might see some tree activity from the puppy hill camera- especially the dead tree by the girqffe tent  and getting the camera down vrom the "V" pen area..
*****
new veteran arriving today- bless grace--- she has become the hospitality  guru at sdp...  she has the place ready... and janet's son arrived to install teh new toilet steve requested..   you all needed to know that...
*****
we added one more kid to the internship summer... he can do saturdays-- which seemed to be a problem for our usual 3.. he has been volunteering for a while for community service..
it is required for national honor society.. and most college applications...
whoever  started that community service program  in the school system  did a great thing...
*****
on we go..
