JULY 24 2015
.. NO VIDEO TODAY???   I HAVE A PROBLEM THIS MORNING WITH THE VIDEO-- I THINK IT IS BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO  MANY PICTURES AND IT SHUT ME DOWN...AND MAY HAVE SHUT OTHERS TOO.  I LIKE THE PICTURES-- BUT PLEASE SAVE THEM AND USE THEM ONE AT A TIME... OYHERWISE I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING.   I DID FLAG 7 OUT OF 8 PICTURES... I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THAT FLAG MEANS--  BUT HOPEFULLY IT FIXES THE PROBLEM.
 BEFORE ANYONE SENDS ME A BUNCH OF FIXES....  THERE ARE ALOT OF THINGS ON MY  VERIZON WIRES BESIDE TEH CAMERQA STUFF...

*************
VOODOO IS COMING ALONG.... SHE  IS "MOUTHY"  SHE WILL PICK UP ANYTHING  AND DRAG IT AROUND... INCLUDING ME... SHE TRIED TO GRAB MY ARM--- WITH AUTHORITY-- SHE WAS ONLY BEING FRIENDLY... BUT SHE NEEDS TO RETHINK SOME THINGS....
PROJECT OF THE DAY IS TO GET HER TO EAT OFF A SPOON... I TRIED A MILK BONE ON A SPOON. AND IT WORKED ONCE.... BECAUSE SHE WILL OPEN HER  MOUTH TO GET A PLAIN MILK BONE....
******
 LARGE EXCITEMENT TODAY-- DAWN OF STEDMAN SCHOOL FAME IS DUE HERE TODAY-- I FORGET HOW SHE IS GETTING HERE... BUT HSE IS DUE... AND SHE WANTS TO FILM A NUTTY PROFESSOR  WITH ME  AT MAIL CALL  TO TAPE AND SHOW HER KIDS... SO NOW I NEED A NUTTY EPISODE... ALL I CAN THINK OF AT THE MOMENT IS MY FLYING PURPLE EGG EPOISODE... THE CONCEPT OF A WEIGHT HIGH UP IS STORED ENERGY-- I DON'T KNOW IF WE COULD GET IT IN THE DOOR  TO HAVE IT  ON CAMERA...OH.. I KNOW WE CAN;T......THE BASE IS 29.5 WIDE... BUT IT STICKS OUT 6 INCHES ON EITHER SIDE...
I HAVE ALOT OF PIECES LEFT OVER FROM IT...
SO I NEED A NUTTY PROFESSOR IDEA IN THE NEXT 3 DAYS... PREFERABLY OF PHYSICAL SCIENCE..  WORK... GEOMETRY... STUFF LIKE THAT...

I WOULD LIKE TO FOOL WITH A BOOMERANG-- BUT IT WOULDN'T WORK TOO WELL IN THE  OFFICE.
******
FOLOOW UP STORY OF----JANINE AND THE FLAT TIRE 2 MILES OFF THE GEORGE WASHINGTON BRIDGE ( NEW YORK CITY FOR YOU FOREIGNERS)--WITH ONE DRAFT HORSE AND 2 YOUNG THOROBREDS, NO BREAKDOWN LANE, AND THE SPARE ALREADY USED--  ALONG WITH  ONLY INCHES FROM THE 80 MPH TRAFFIC... I HAVE TO GIVE THANKS TO THE NJ STATE POLICE--  JANINE CALLED 911 AND AAA AND THEY HAD A WRECKER THERE IN MINUTES, 2 CRUISERS SHUT OFF TWO LANE OF TRAFFIC WHIOLE THE WRECKER CHANGED THE TIRE IN-- SHE SAID IT WAS LESS THAN A MINUTE WITH POWER  TOOLS..  I GUESS SHE GOT OUT BEHIND THE TRAILER  AND WAVED HER RED SHIRT  IN THE AIR TIL THE POLICE  ARRIVED WITH TEH FLASHING LIGHTS.
IT WAS PROBABLY SENSABLE-- BECAUSE STAYING IN THE TRUCK  IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN HIT- AND AT 80 MPH  THAT WAS NOT GOING TO BE GOOD,
I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DRAFT AND ONE TB... BUT THE OTHER   TB IS IN OUR BARN.. 
 SAYS IT IS A NICE HORSE - 16.2 AND SEEMS KINDLY...
FYI---- THE EDUCATIONAL BIT FOR THE DAY---  16.2  MEANS 16 HANDS 2 INCHES TALL AT THE SHOULDERS( WITHERS)  AND A HAND IS 4 INCHES..  JUST FOR FUN... I JIUST MEASURED MY HAND...... 4 INCHES.. (THOSE OLD TYMERS HAD A  PRACTICAL WAY ABOUT THEM....)
HOW DOES THAT COMPARE TO ANY HORSES YOU MIGHT KNOW?  JANINE'S BLACK HORSE IS ONLY 2 INCHES TALLER   17 HANDS ( AND HEAVIER..)  MARY-- OUR DONKEY  WAS ABOUT 14  HANDS  WHICH IS TALL FOR A DONKEY AND IS A SHORT HORSE.
TALL IS DESIREABLE WITH JANINE'S LEAPING  "HUNT CROWD".   THEYare nutty anyway...   it is the  basketball player  vs football player  conformation i keep referring to withthe great dane shape... i prefer the football  player shape..... 
********

MY CHALLANGE OF YESTERDAY    TUFTS VET SCHOOL IS DOING A STUDY ON BLOAT-- AND THEY ARE INTERESTED IN OUR "FAMILY" -- I DON'T WANT TO SAY   BUT --- WE ARE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE HAD 4 BLOATS IN ABOUT 300 DOGS.

SO I GOT THIS NOTE
Of the older dogs that have not bloated how many do not have a 1st degree relative that has not bloated?
  3 not's in one sentance....  wow....   I TRIED...

AND GAVE THEM A LIST OF 14 DOGS OVER 5 YEARS OLD  WHO HAVE NOT BLOATED-- BUT THE NEXT 2 "NOT'S"   GOT ME

 I TACKLED IT WITH ---BAILEY IS 12 ... AND NEITHER OF HER PARENTS BLOATED.
HOPEFULLY THAT IS RIGHT

SO WE MAY BE COLLECTING  BLOOD   -- OR SENDNG OUT DNA TEST KITS FOR 14 OF OUR DOGS...

ON WE GO...
