MAY 26 2016
WOW---  FINANCE REPORT--------WITH THE EXPLORE GRANT YESTERDAY  LIFE IS LOOKING UP..  WITH THE CHICKEN BRICKS FROM THE CAMERA PEOPLE WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO MANAGE WHAT  WE HAVE GOING.......-- PAYROLL IS ( WITH INSURANCE) OVER $33K PER M ONTH-- AND OUR BIGGEST EXPENSE BY FAR.... EVEN WITH ALL THE VOLUNTEERS ON WHOM WE AARE ALSO DEPENDENT....33K/MONTH ...IF MY MATH IS CORRECT, IS PRETTY CLOSE TO 400K PER YEAR-- CUMMINGS 50,000 PLUS EXPLORE 150,000 IS ABOUT HALF WHAT WE NEED TO MEET THE PAYOLL  SO WE HAVE SOME SCRAMBLING TO DO  ADDING THE CHICKEN BRICKS $20K PER MONTH IS WHAT IS KEEPING US GOING  -- SO DON'T FIGURE WE ARE ALL SET...... 
THIS DEPENDENCY BIT IS NEW TO ME-- WELL---- AS OPPOSED TO 10 YEARS AGO.. REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPEED 10 YEARS AGO I KNEW I COUOD GET EVERYONE FED,  COMFORTABLE AND REALTIVELY CLEAN  ALL BY MYSELF..  DEFINITELY NOT TRUE ANYMORE.  WE GREW UP !!
AND WITH THE UP-GROWING-- CAME THE IRS, ADI,ADA,PTSD AND THE REST OF THE ALPHABET SOUP NOW CALLED NECESSARY AND I AM DEPENDENT ON Y'ALL TO KEEP ME FED, COMFORTABLE.....  ( I CAN STILL MANAGE THE CLEAN PART)

I AM WORKING ON A MORE SERIOUS APPROACH TO GRANTS-- SEVERAL PEOPLE ARE READING THEM AND IF THEY SOUND PROMISING THEY SEND THEM TO ME  AND I SORT THRU BEFORE GOING TO ANNE WITH THEM.....  NOT ALL ARE FOR OUR SDP ORGANIZATION... IT TKES READING BETWEEN ALL THOSE LINES.  IF YOU KNOW OF ANYTHING TO NOMINATE US FOR.. SQUEEK UP.....
****
BENTLEY  JUST UPCHUCKED---  YELLOW GLOB..( HEY THIS IS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE...) -- EMPTY TUMMY NEEDED A COOKIE- HE DOES NOT USUALLY HAVE A PROBLEMS WITH SUCH MINOR THINGS...
*****
I AM DELIGHTED TO HEAR THAT PARIS IS HELPING WITH  THE LAUNDRY  MAYBE YOU COULD GIVE HER MY CONGRADUALTIONS ( AND ASK HER TO CHECK THE DRYER VENT  FOR A NEW RESPONSIBILITY)
******
YESTERDAY I  GOT AN AD IN THE MAIL FOR "BOSTON DOG LAWYERS"----  NEW ON ON ME--  THEY ADVERTISE ABOUT MANY THINGS ONCE DEEMED  AKWARD  AND DOG OWNERS JUST TOOK THE BACK SEAT-- LIFE IS CHANGING .. AND I DO HAVE ONE THING I  WILL DISCUSS WITH THEM...  WHEN A TOWN PASSES A LEASH LAW- I THINK IT SHOULD BE MANDATORY THAT THEY  HAVE AND MAINTAIN A DOG PARK FOR EVERY XXXXX NUMBER OF DOGS IN THE TOWN.  OTHERWISE YOU ARE CONDEMNING ALL THE DOGS TO LIFE ON A LEASH AND NO  PLACE TO RUN EVEN FOR A FEW MINUTES.  LET ME  REMIND EVERYONE THAT DOG OWNERS PAY TAXES TOO.  LET ME ALSO REMIND THEM THAT  A POO PICKER IN THEIR BACK POCKET WOULD CURE  A LOT OF THE ARGUEMENTS  NON DOG OWNERS HAVE.  MUST ELIMINATE THE "SOFT STEP" OF DOG OWNERSHIP.

THE TOWNS ALWAYS MAINTAIN SOME PLAYGROUNDS FOR KIDS--- WELL---- KIDS CAUSE MORE TROUBLE FOR THE TOWN THAN ANY DOG EVER DID.
****
THERE IS ONE OTHER ISSUE I DISCUSSED LATELY - I FORGET WITH WHOM....IF 2 DOGS GET IN A FIGHT, REGARDLESS OF WHO STARTED IT....IT IS ALWAYS THE BIGGER DOG THAT WAS WRONG. I KNOW THAT AROUND HERE...  WANDA STARTS A FENCE FIGHT, AND WE YELL AT THE DANES. WHILE SHE RUNS OFF AND SNICKERS.
*****

HELPPPPPP.... THIS IS A TOUGH WEEKEND FOR HELP  COMING UP--APPARENTLY WE  COULD USE HELP SAT/SUN/MON--
2 FUNERALS , ONE VACATION AND ONE PREGNANCY MEANS   WE WILL BE A LITTLE SHORT STAFFED... SO DON'T STAY HOME WONDERING WHAT TO DO !!!
******
MAY BE WORTHY OF PASSING ON....

HI CARLENE
JUST WANTED TO RUN BY YOU AN ALTERNATIVE TO A SWIFFER FOR DOING FLOORS. I JUST SWITCHED TO THE PROMIST BY O-CEDAR. I LOVE IT. IT USES A REFILLABLE BOTTLE, THAT YOU CAN PUT YOUR OWN SOLUTION IN - I USE WATER AND 2 TSPS. OF A CONCENTRATED FLOOR CLEANER. THAN IT HAS A WASHABLE MICROFIBRE PAD - BUT APPARENTLY YOU CAN ALSO GET THROW-AWAY PADS FOR IT AS WELL. AND NO BATTERIES NEEDED FOR THE SPRAYER!  IT CERTAINLY IS MORE ECONOMICAL, AND ALSO HAS THE BENEFITS OF USING A  BLEACH SOLUTION IF NEEDED, ETC. PLUS THE WHOLE MOP IS MORE STURDY.
 I AM IN CANADA, AND HERE THE COMPANY IS CALLED VILEDA. HAD TO SEARCH FOR THE SAME PRODUCT IN THE STATES!

I AM PRETTY ANNOYED THAT SWIFTER DOES NOT LET YOU REFIL-- SOMEONE PASSED ON THE WAY TO  DO SOMETHING LIKE BOILING WATER ON THE TOPS--???  I GAVE THE DIRECTIONS TO DONNA...
************
 THERE IS A WOMAN HERE ON THE CAPE THAT HAS A SMALL WIG BUSINESS.   I HAD AN APPOINTMENT WITH HER TODAY AND I CAN SAY THAT HER SHOP WAS REALLY, REALLY SMALL.  NOT REALLY MUCH ROOM TO PUT IVY IN A DOWN STAY.  I LET IVY STAY BY MY SIDE.  HER TAIL WAS GOING A MILE A MINUTE AND ALL DREW AND I COULD THINK OF WAS THAT ALL OF THE STYROFOAM HEADS WITH WIGS AND HEADPIECES WERE GOING TO GO FLYING OFF OF ALL THE SHELVES.  I AM HAPPY TO REPORT THAT NOTHING BAD HAPPENED AND THE OWNER JUST FELL IN LOVE WITH IVY.  

I THEN TOLD HER ABOUT SDP AND EVENTUALLY GOT HER TO LOG ONTO THE EXPLORE WEBSITE.  MAYBE A NEW CHICKEN BRICK CONTRIBUTOR.  ONE CAN ONLY HOPE.

  1. Re swifter. I use libman, like o cedar, much cheaper to use your own cleaner solution, & washable pad.I still use the regular swifter (dry/wet) cloths for a quick clean up...Make sure you pass this to Donna
