JULY 30 2015 --
MY INSOMNIA LAST NIGHT WAS SPENT ON  THINKING ABOUT THE INTERNET---NIGHTMARES SOME MIGHT SAY-...
STARTING WITH ANIMALS, WHICH I OBVIOUSLY PREFER..  I COULD  NOT THINK OF ONE ANIMAL WHO COMMENTS ON ANOTHER'S BEHAVIOR-- EXCEPT IN AN IMMEDIATE SITUATION .HORSE WILL KICK ANOTHER IF CROWDED.. A DOG MAY FIGHT ANOTHER OVER FOOD-- OR GIRL DOGS.. BUT NOT ONE WILL   COMMENT ON ANOTHER'S  FUTURE OR PAST BEHAVIOR...

AND THEN THERE ARE HUMANS...  FROM DECIDING  FOR SOMEONE ELSE WHAT IS FASHIONABLE TO WEAR  "HOW COULD SHE WEAR PLAIDS AND STRIPES?"-- TO HOW TO RAISE SOMEONE ELSE'S CHILDREN, TO... AT THE IPSWICH COUNTRY CLUB... HAVING A MEETING.. OF ADULTS... WHO WERE ALL UPSET ABOUT THE COLOR SOMEONE PAINTED THEIR MAILBOX...

 THIS INTERNET BIT GIVES PEOPLE A PLACE TO TYPE ANYTHING-- MINUS THE EDITOR -- WHICH IN DAYS GONE  BY KEPT NEWPAPERS HONEST BY INSISTING ON FACT CHECKING...NOW ANYTHING GOES...  JUST ASK  "WHAT CAUSES BLOAT"  AND THERE WILL BE SOMEONE WHO WILL TELL YOU WITH GREAT AUTHORITY   "CARROTS"  BECAUSE THEY HAD AN UNCLE WHO DID NOT FEED CARROTS TO HIS DANE AND THE DANE DID NOT BLOAT. AND ENOUGH PEOPLE WILL READ IT AND PASS IT ALONG

THAT LOGIC IS PERVASIVE IN THE INTERNET.  BECAUSE THERE IS NO EDITOR..... EXCEPT FOR THE POOR GUY WHO TRYS TO KEEP ANY DISCUSSION ON TOPIC, PLEASENT AND EDUCATIONAL..  WHICH IS WHAT  EXPLORE TRYS TO DO-- THEY MADE SOME RULES...  http://explore.org/extra/community_guidelines/   GO READ THEM.

I LOVE TO ARGUE--- RICHARD WAS HERE FOR A WEEK-- AND WE DID LITTLE ELSE EXCEPT ARGUE-- HAD A WONDERFUL TIME--I ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF THE CHALLANGE.  AND IF ANYONE WANTS TO ARGUE ABOUT ANYTHING.... COME HERE AND HAVE AT IT... COFFEE POT IS ALWAYS ON...
BUT I CAN NOT SIT AND TYPE LONG INVOLVED ARGUEMENTS IN THE COMMENTS....  I JUST DON'T HAVE TIME..... EVEN THO I WOULD LOVE TO.   I WOULD EVEN SET UP A SPECIAL TABLE AT DOG FEST FOR ARGUING--- ANYTHING..( EXCEPT POLITICS AND RELIGION.. )  THAT IS THE CORRECT WAY TO VOICE YOUR OBJECTIONS... NOT SLIDING AROUND BOOKING FACES AND EMAILING INNOCENT STRANGERS... COME HERE AND BATTLE IT OUT. 

NONE OF THIS  NEGATIVE   "RUN IT UP THE FLAGPOLE  AND SEE IF ANYONE SALUTES IT"  MENTALITY...  GO READ THE RULES...

I REMEMBER....... WHEN SOMEONE OF MY HIGHSCHOOL TEACHERS WAS TRYING TO GET AACROSS TO US THE CONCEPT OF INFINITY .. SAID "IF YOU GIVE ENOUGH MONKEYS  ENOUGH TYPEWRITERS, ONE WILL TYPE THE COMPLETE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE" 
SOMEHOW I THINK THE INTERNET COMES CLOSE TO THAT  CONCEPT.

******************
I WANT TO GO BACK AND READ LAST NIGHT'S COMMENTS TO SEE IF PAM GOT ANY SLEEP AT ALL...  WE HAD SOME BARKERS -- AUDRY AND VIVIAN  PLUS VOODOO AND LEROY-- WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO BE QUIET AFTER SURGERY TO HIS EYES...-- THEY WERE WILD...  WE FINALLY GOT THEM  IN SEPARATE AREAS AND QUIETED DOWN... AND I GOT UP TO IT BEING   SO PEACEFUL I WONDER WHERE SHE PUT EVERYONE...  I KNOW GRACE TOOK ARIOT TO THE GUEST HOUSE.... BUT EVERYONE HERE IS NOT MOVING... I BETTER CHECK...

HI CARLENE,

I JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON MS. IVY.  WELL, THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS HAVE BEEN SHEER HELL FOR ME AS FAR AS MY LEG TREMOR IS CONCERNED.  MS. IVY, TAKING ME UP STAIRS WILL ACTUALLY STOP ME WHEN THE TREMORS ARE SO BAD AND SHE WAITS PATIENTLY UNTIL I CAN WALK SAFELY AGAIN.  THE SAME GOES FOR WHEN I GO DOWN THE STAIRS.  I KNOW SHE WAS TRAINED FOR GETTING ME UP AND DOWN STAIRS, BUT FOR STOPPING ME WHEN SHE KNEW I COULDN'T GO UP AND DOWN BECAUSE OF THE TREMORS IS A PLUS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALLOWING ME TO GET MY LIFE BACK.  LOVE TO ALL AT SDP.

BETTY AND IVY TINGLEY
