 the bella and george video.....30 million and counting-  and growing a steady 4000 a minute overnight---i should be -- and will be  re doing our web to try and capture  more of the masses...  if they would only send $1 each ...    
**********
my other  BRILLIANT IDEA OF THE DAY..

THIS VIRAL OF BELLA AND GEORGE  STARTED ME THINKING....
I HAD A FAMILY IN HERE WHO ASKED  " I HAVE A GROUP OF 21 4TH GRADERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO HELP.  WHAT CAN WE DO, COLLECT FLUFFIES,BAKE COOKIES?" AND I HAD A STROKE OF LIGHTNING... HAVE EACH 4TH GRADER- WHO IS KNOWN TO BE A COMPUTER EXPERT BY 3rd grade, go out in the commiunity to  senior residences or whatever.... and set them up watching the cameras of  explore  and  service dog project...

so many of these places are crying for entertainment- and inclusion in a  real life situation...  and all these 12 year old kids can set them up  watching the explore cameras in general---- and us in particular...
***********
we are getting alot of people who want to volunteer  so i am now responding with:

we are at the point of  asking that volunteers committ to at least 2 days a week.
otherwise we end up with a bunch of spectators that we trip over...

******
we certainly love volunteers, but make no mistake -- we work our volunteers.  
******
the cart in the yard...  explination-- janine was at some auction sat night and she was trying to get someone to  bid more on a beautiful  "meadowbrook"  horse drawn cart... and the hammer fell-- so she owned the cart-- it is of furniture quality-- a thing of beauty...  it was a whale of a bargain ... if you needed one....  we did not know we needed one-- but we have one now....

next problem is  driving a horse can be even more dangerous than riding one---  until totally ttrained and driven 478 miles, they can be unreliable- and run...cart attatched...  i am no longer of the age to  train one... however there is the donkey-- who 's attitude to a cart is entirely different...when in doubt a horse will run... and a donkey will  usually stand still.... i can deal with that-  we do have a harness i bought for mary-- whidch should fit... so if the volunteers want to play that  role, maybe by next spring we can  ride around in a beautiful meadowbrook-- with a donkey----  another one of those "against  public opinion" things...

people used to make fun of me trying to drive the 8 mini donkeys in that beautiful "sam friedman" harness- and then i was in fact driving them--- into hotels with  antlers and santa on the box...
people used to make fun of ..."service danes? what are you ...nuts??"  and now we have done that.
so this cart and donkey project is just one more.....unusual project...
 but it can only be a diversion  for the volunteers-- annie-- you are on it-- i have other fish to fry...
