righty tighty lefty loosy..-----" i " before "e"  except on  alternate thursdays--there are a lot of things i cannot keep straight...and a great deal is binary.. and i bet alot of you are the same but never thought about it  right left.. up down.. red   blue ....   i can blame my age,  but if the truth be known i was never much better-
so idecided to get the best of this password bit on theses computers.
 finally time to  figure out why i am so anti modern communications.... i went to the mailcall computer--A---’’’ i was animalep@aol.com  but could not use teh password i had written  so i   with difficulty changed it and wrote it on the computer  on tape..  i wenrt away and came back 10 min later    to check the email and teh password did not work because i was not on safari, but chrome  so i entered/ changed all that to match.. came into my room... new computer-   for some reason it thoughti was carlene 1001@gmail so i got tht turned back to animalep--- and the passoord from computera did not match so i wanted to change it to match teh other--- and i can’t use that one becuse i havee used it before...
whos counting? permutations combinations------that is 2 computers 2(safari/chorme) and 2names and 2 passwords... and you know.... i can’t keep it straight. 
next problem--   computrs have no INTERNAL DELETE  at all --- so after you have made some error you get into "i already have thT NAME IN MY SYSTEM WHICH HAS TO BELONG TO SOMEONE ELSE" HAS CAUSED ME TO HAVE-- BY ACTUAL COUNT       9 GOOGLE NAMES   4 PAYPAL   6 VERISON  AND ALL MY MEDICAL RECORDS ARE UNDER ANIMALEOP@AOL.COM   WITH THE EXTRA "O" ,....  I DON'T KNOW HOW THE REAST OF TEH WORLD MANAGES... I JUST CAN'T

LOTSOF PEOPLE HAVE SAYINGS TO HELO THEM  REMEMBRERT  ----30 DAYS HATH SEPTEMBR... WELL I HAVE ONE MY MOTHER SAID AS SHE STOOD IN FRONT OF A PAN SHE WAS ABOUT TO PUT IN TH OVEN... TO BE SURE SHE HAD NOT FORGOTTEN ANYTHING...
FLOUR  SUGAR  SODA  SALT  EGGS  MILK  AND  BUTTER-- PROBLEM IS I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MAKES.  
 CAN'T WIN/

I HAVE BEEN AWAKE SINCE 2AM TRYIJNG TO RECONFIGURE THE WAY WE ... AS SDP.. PROCESS INFORMTION.  I DO NOT DO FACEBOOK AND AM NOT ABOUT TO START.. IT ALWAYS MAKES TROUBLE WITH ALOT OF PEOPLE AND NOT ENOUGH INFORMATION,   I PREFER  THE EXPLORE COMMENT COLUMN AND EMAILS.... I TRY AND ANSWER ALL MY EMAILS..NOW TO ANIMALEP@AOL.COM  LOOKING FORWARD.... MAYBE  IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO  TAKE ONE OF THESE ODD GOOGLE ACCOUNTS AND USE IT AS A RECIPIENTS REPORTING FORM  I LOVE TO GET THOSE REPORTS... AND SO FAR I HAVE HQAAD TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO COPY AND PASTE TEHM TO ME...WOULD  IT BE MORE EFFICIENT TO ASK RECIPIENTS  TO SEND ME EMAILS SO I CAN COPY AND PASTE TEHM TO THE CP WORLD ON EXPLORE AND IN THE  DAILY DOGGIE, WE ... AS SDP... HAVE DONATED OVER 200 DOGS TO PEOPLE  AND IF I GET ONE EMAIL A WEEK, I AM AMAZED.. SOMETHING WRONG THERE.
THAT IS A PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF FACEBOOK...  TOO MANY PEOPLE WITH TOO LITTLE INFORMTION.  WHICH IS FINE  FOR CREATIVE BANTER, BUT I WAANT TO ELIMINATE ALL THE SDP INFORMQTION AND GIVE PEOPLE A CHANCE TO GET IT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH.    SO I AM WORKING ON IT . 
 



Hi Carlene, after reading the DD today, it reminds me of a deaf woman I met back in 1971 while in college at Mount Wachusett in Gardner Mass. For a few years I had been reading in our local paper of a deaf skier from Fitchburg Mass. Her name is Tammy Marcinuk, and we ended up in a few classes together. I immediately wanted to meet her and we became good friends. Her issue was she did not want the professor of the history class to know she was deaf. We sat next to each other, and I would try to sign her what he was saying, and needless to say I was not very good about it . Tammy was more comfortable reading lips, so that's what we did. Well, one day after class, the professor told Tammy and I he needed to see us, and we were accused of cheating. To her embarrassment, I told the professor she was deaf and all I was doing was relaying what he was saying, not cheating. As I told him, if she was going to cheat it would not be off of me as I was not the best student !! He was mad as he was not made aware of this issue until we were caught, but said he would have to monitor what I was telling her. We really didn't care at this point, and knew we would quit that class soon anyway. Tammy taught me basic signs to communicate with her, and that was the catalyst for her to extend her education to go on to teach deaf students around the country, which she did. If you google her name, you will see in her skiing career, she went on to win 5 gold medals, some silver medals and bronze ones in the Deaf Olympics, she skied all over the world. and became a huge promoter of deaf people participating in sports. She was a true hero to so many, and her story stays with me whenever I encounter deaf people or more lately with the news stations having a sign language person on tv. A big thrill for me was going to her house where she let me hold the medals and she would tell me the stories of her world travels. I like to think that my going up to her that day and wanting to meet and talk with her was a turning point for her as she was incredibly shy around people and felt she could not fit in with her hearing disability. I took her to college parties when she was comfortable enough to go and I feel I opened up a part of the local world to her. So that is a little info on deafness, and also my husband suffers from severe, or as the doctor called it profound hearing loss due to his military service.  Just do the best you can !!Thank you for all you do, and especially the DD, and I ordered the book on line yesterday and should have it by Wednesday this week !
Sincerely

Hi, Carlene!

One of my childhood friends had grandparents who were deaf. 
She spent one summer teaching me the ASL alphabet, which I remember to this day. 
I became skilled in spelling words & got quite proficient in signing the Our Father as I walked around the block at dusk, a peaceful ending to a busy day when kids were kids & every summer day a happy adventure. 
Only problem was that my friend taught me just two symbols — those for cake & pie. 
On second thought perhaps that wasn’t such a bad thing.
Sometimes what you need to cheer your soul are cake & pie. 
Like today.
And every day in the foreseeable future.  🎂 🥧
Stay safe always,
Linda

Dear Carlene,
  Pixie has been doing really well. She’s adjusting to not getting out but we are making the best of the what we call the normal for now to stay healthy. We spend time outside in the fresh air, we also work on keeping on her training in the yard so it’s a di setting then just the house  so she doesn’t lose her skills. She’s doing fabulous and we do this this each day, along with inside training. We been really trying to keep busy at home.
We hope you are well and and stay safe and healthy.

Pixie & Stacy

TOMMY WROTE THIS DISCERTATION ON  FACE TOUCHING.
DR, NUGENTS NUGGET   
Life has changed. It is unclear how long this virus will persist, but here are some precautions which may control its spread and one's exposure.

It seems that Covid-19 persists on objects for varying lengths of time. Most of what is published says hours or more. It is speculated that contact with infected surfaces may be sufficient to contract the virus. The virus most commonly enters the body by means of the face. The mucus membranes of the eyes, nose and mouth are the most common points of entry for the virus. 

Masks, if of sufficient filtration capabilities, will help prevent an individual from becoming infected by inhaling the virus from a cough or someone's breath, but the 6' precautions and proper coughing techniques (into bend of elbow) limit that type of spread, if followed. 

From what is written, it seems that hand-to-face infection is most common. That means that gloves are more important for protection from infection than masks. While in public, wearing disposable gloves will provide more protection than a mask, so long as one keeps a 6+ foot distance-barrier and otherwise protects against airborne viral particles;  i.e. don't let anyone cough in your face.

The most important result of wearing gloves is that it reminds us not to touch our face. Before entering your safe zone, such as car or home, remove gloves and wash your hands the 20 seconds or more suggested. (Alcohol cleansers are also effective, but it is best to wash them. At least do something.)

 Gas pumps and cash are concerning. It is unclear if either of these can transmit the virus, but caution is suggested. Lots of people handle those gas pumps and lots of people have handled your change. Gloves should be worn while pumping gas and it might be a good time for full service gas stations to reemerge and give people jobs. Until then, the use of gloves is recommended when touching objects frequently touched by others.  Cash transactions should be minimized. It is difficult to envision a better means of spreading an infection than cash. 

There is so little known about the transmission of this virus that it is important to follow the recommendations provided by the CDC and other agencies who know much more about this than I. Follow the distance and group limitation recommendations, wear disposable gloves in public, wash hands frequently and limit the use of cash. Credit cards are more easily cleaned. 

Fact is, while quarantine practices are taught in medicine, they have rarely been executed on this scale. The only experience I have had with quarantines came from yrs of horse experience during which several out-breaks of infection required quarantines. One thing I do know is that we would never have let horses use the same gas pump or pass around cash when trying to contain something...
 
Eat smart, get plenty of fresh air and sunshine.  This too shall pass...

watching the local news is less painful than the national...   bill gates has some pretty good take on the whole then..
namely  it will go down when each person with it  infects less than one person... like 1 out of 3 type thing. that was 
in his current interview... he had a ted lecture 5 years ago where he nailed this whole thing on the head

those ted lectures are a good thing.  john carter - has one of our dogs-- father was mafia- he got shot inthe head
also jailed -- and in jail he learned about fitness and now runs his own gym...  when he PPLIED FOR A DOG..I ASSUMED WAR INJURY
AND LATER FOUND OUT IT WAS MAFIA RELATED !!  NICE GUY    GOOD TALK 

HEALTH REPORT..   STILL DEALING WITH THE FAULTY  BIG MAC-- AND my head is leaking.... A SIGNIFICANT NOSE DRIP..   I AM HOPING.....
MY seasonal  NOSE DRIP IS HISTORIC WHEN I END UP CARRYING A ROLL OF TP  TO DEAL WIWTH TEH DELUGE

JANICE....( AUTHOR PERSON) sent me what she called authors coppiesof the service dog project book.

i think i am supposed to proof rread thaose.. now there is a jo0ke.  they look fine tome ! 

 I THINKwill be  SENDING ME  couple cartons of books  to sign...==
 the book looks like a regualr book!!!! and has my picture on it  !!! i am very imporessed..

it has that picture of me spoon feeeding 10 pups who are all sitting politely in front of me...   that is a challange to anyone ekse raising pups... l
i would like to see pictures of other  breed litters sitting so nicely...

it does have my origional spelliong.. so it will be a cghalange in places to read...
as i age, my fingers stutter...

Hi Carlene!

Glad to hear you are staying well.

I have a couple photos to share from a few weeks ago having spent the evening with Mike and Iggy. Mike treated us to a meatloaf dinner and Iggy provided the entertainment.
They are both doing well.  Mark and I watched as Iggy got the royal treatment for his own dinner before we sat down to eat.

Iggy is very good at never leaving Mike’s side. Any little move Mike makes his shadow is there with him. That includes bathroom trips. I imagine that’s kind of awkward depending on the size of the bathroom. Hahaha

Mike bought another vehicle. It’s vintage and he calls it The Iggymobile. It’s a Jeep, originally made in Toledo, sent to California and purchased by a man for his Great Dane, Rocky. Rocky has since passed and the fellow was THRILLED that Rocky’s car has become Iggy’s car.

Here are the photos. Mark is the fellow playing with Iggy. Iggy loves attention and should you stop, one mammoth paw encourages you to start up again. And if you’re not quick enough, two mammoth paws get involved. Remain well, my best, Dawn

WHERE TO START..AS I UNDERSTAND....
THIS STUFF IS  AN EXTREMELY CONTAGEOUS VARIETY OF VIRUS
details?....
GETTING RESULTS OF ANY  NEGATIVE TEST- 5 TO 7 DAYS AFTER THEY TOOK A SWAAB..
ALL THAT MEANS IS YOU WERE PROBABLYU NEGATIVE AT THAT
 TIME BUT THAT COUDL CHANGE THE MINUTE YOU STOPPED TO BUY SOME FOOD.. ANYWHERE. 

THERE IS APPARENTLY ONLY A  PERCENT OF POSITIVES WHO SHOW ANY SIGN
BUT ALL ARE CONTAGEOUS....

SO IN SPITE OF ALL YOU DO, IF YOU EAT FOOD, DRINK WATER  YOU COULD BE EXPOSED
even by someone who just tested negative.

CERTAINLY  KEEPING YOUR DISTANCE IS ... BY  FAUCI AND TEH  NY GOV  -- PROVEN TO WORK.

MEGAN DID A GREat job getting the dogs stashed when we heard teh first  "stay home" order...
 which was before teh mass  gov then excluded animal and livestock care personell.
 she apparently stashed tehm til april 6th... leaving me  totally up in the air as to what to do/plan...  planning is long gone...

rumor  also has it if you get it and get over it you are then "immune.... vaccinated teh old way" -- which is what i am hoping for.

my temp has been less than 98 taken 5 times a day for 10? days? 
 and the worse problem i have  is eating a 1/2 cooked big mac  which is rushing around inside my tummy.

having had  a macdonalds problem.. it seems a good chooice to have chef michael cook some meals for us
i have asked him to take his temp 4 times a day in prep for his cooking bere on friday\

dennis is here for all 7 days   7 to 4--his mother tested negative which is interesting but meaningless
there is no absolute  preventative.
------
i  had to shut off the news  to even try writing this...-- i am hearing magic words  like maintaining supply lines..
---
my little dog training episode last night has got huge reviews..
 even asking me to discuss that kind of stuff at trainer talk today  4:45

-- there are parts  of SDP still running... judy has some school wanting me to skyope or something..
and linda wants to come and see chaos today-- even if there is no reason for linda to come here...
at the moment she can handle stuff at home..  as can pam.

heather is enjoying feeding chickens and donkeys right now

i did ask the camera ops to run highlights untils we get up and running again...
====
being here with no dogs is extremely strange- and a shock tomy system...
actually
it has shocked my blood pressure right back to normal !!!!

PUPPY TRAINING.....    WELL------JANINE POINTYED OUT THAT  SINCI I HAD NOTHING TO DO. I SHOULD VIDEO DOG TRAINING
THE BOOK IS NEARLY READY OR IS READY.. SONE DISCUSSION ABOUT COLOR OF COVER AND
THE FUNNY LABEL WITH STRIPES.. 
 WHY NOT GIVE TRAINING DEMOS...  OK....
I CAN DO THAT// MAYBE... UNTILI RUN OUT OF IDEAS// SO 
THERE IS ONE OF MY PET PEEVES ABOUT PUPPY TRAINING THATR I WILL TACKLE AT 4:45 TODAY .

----
WIERD NEWS-- I DON'T HAVE TO GO FAR FOR THAT..

THERE IS.. ONE OF THE TWO OLDEST FARMS IN THE US IN CONTINUAL USE BY ONE FAMILY  APPLETON FARM
CAN BE GOOGLED.. JUST SOUTH  OF IPSWICH  FOLLOW ROUTE 1A.
 NOW MANAGED BY THE TRUSTEES OF THE RESERVATIONS I AM TOLD 
  WE HAVE A PICTRE ON ONE OF OUR CALENDARS ON IT... THE MAPLE TREE BIT
MILE OR SO ON 3 SIDES....
THEY HAVE RUN A YELLOW TAPE AROUND IT.. 

MAYBEY THEY HAVE DISCOVERED SOMETHING I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT.... BUT......
IT IS FRESH AIR  PERSONIFIED...  ALL TAPED OFF....

MY FRIEND ANN LIVES ACRIOSS THE STREET... AND ANN IS USUALLY SANE AND SOBER...
 BUT SHE DOES NOT GET UP EARLY OR I WOULD HAVE CHECKED UP ON THIS INFO
SHE USUALL READS THIS AND WILL PROBQQLY CALL TO TELL ME WHAG SHE KNOW. 
THIS CV19 THING IS BAD  FOR SURE... BUT MILES OF YELLOW TAPE??  
-...BEING KIND... MAYBE IT IS JUST  PUT THERE AS A REMINDER TO EVERYONE -- KEEP YOUR DISTANCE.

I CAN DO ANOTHER 3 YEARS OF DAILY DOGGIE FUNNY STORIES ABOURT ANN/ ME AND
 GROTON HOUSE HORSE TRIALS-- THINGS I COULD NOT DREAM UP
LIKE MY RELATIVES SLEEPINT ON TOP OF A HUGE  100 FOOT 
TENT-- AND 200 GREY LOOKING BOILED CHICKENS ...  THERE IS....A LOT... 

ACTUALLY...JANICE- WHO IS FINISHOING UPON MY BOOK AND DID SCOT "KNOT TODAY"  
ANN IS CERTAINLY ANOTHRE ABSOLUTE CHARACTER ABOUT WHOM A BOOK  WOULD FIT IN YOUR COLLECTION
OF THE LUNATIC FRINGE.

SO A DAY ON THIS  FARM... I HEATHER HAS MOVED IN WITH ME FOR WHICH I AM VERY THANKFUL

the governor made care of animals, pets and livestock excluded from th stay at home order.-- we will have to have a meeting/discussion with the staff..
 certainly if anyone feels that working would be  a threat to their health/life they are certainly entitled to quit,  i hope they don't,  i certainly can not run it by myself-- even with janine in teh guest house...i had the place split into 3 or 4 people per section... to whom we were already exposed anyway-- you will never be 100% free of exposure if you have to eat food and pump gas.  at any moment any of us could show signs.  i did formally ask pam and linda  to work at home.
 several people did decide having chef michale  cook  was probably less exposure  to let him shop and cook than having 8 if us shop.

 not knowing a thing... i have some feeling sub sandwiches  and salads   wouod be  something to avoid as opposed to hot foods... like fried food !! 
 now there's an excuse !

i also think there is a double whammy coming  first the hospitals in the boston area overflowing without enough equipment  and then the economy will hit
and that will be bad too.
just one disaster at a time...

stay home on the farm is not as bad as trying to live in a small appartment  with 2 kids and a husband.
perish the thought.

-----
not sure how this book bit works, but  amazon  will have it online--
 and SDP will have the  printed early edition here maybe in a week or so???,,, which i will be signing..

 author "janice " is doing great... and there are so many details i never knew.... i am learning..
----
meanwhile i am working on the chicken bric email list--

that is teh most excitement i can come up with.. at least at teh moment.

 welllll.... i did have qan overnight chuckle...  chris coumo had his broither  NY govenor cuomo on as guest,
,he introduced him and  thanked him for coming on his show the govenor said "mom said i had to"

PARAPHANAALIA WE DON'T NEED ANYWAY----- A CHANGE IN REALITY
WELL WWEA ARE AT IT AGAIN... DIFFERENTLY  

I NEVER DID APPROVE THE  GROUPS OF  6 OR 10 PEOPLE LIMIT...  I THINK THE 2 PEOPLE IS REALISTIC
AND  TO AMUSE MYSELF .. I GO ROUND TEH 4 USUAL NEWS CHANNELS 
 OF ALL THE PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO  THERE ARE ONE OR TWO WHO DEAL JUST IN FACTS
SOMEONE IN FRANCE CAME UP WITH A "NUMBER OF NEW CASES"  SAVING 
ME FROM HQAVING TO REMEMBER YESTGERDAYS FIGURES...
i could understand  % OF POSITIVES OF TESTS  RUN AS MORE MEANINGFUL

I DO NOT HAVE THE ANSWER,,BUT I SURE HQAVE QUESTIONS
STARTING WITH WEST VIRGINIA HAVING NO CASES--- WELL THEY DIDN'T TEST
THE ULTIMATE DON'T ASK DON'T TELL.
THAT FACT SETS THE STAGE FOR TRYING TO FIGURE OUT  THE NUMBERS

Looked out at my blooming trees and flowers and realized that it has been one year since Riz and I Walked On.  How wonderful that our anniversary date is 3/21, the first day of spring...a day full of promise of new life to come.  Riz was truly a “Spring” for me.  I had been through so much with my old service dog getting cancer and didn’t have hope, but somehow, between, you, Goldie, and Megan, Riz and I were matched and I unexpectedly left the farm with a new partner this time last year....Spring indeed!

As I look back over the year, I cant believe how much we have grown as a team and how much my life has been enriched by having her in it. She was born and trained to work and her joy in serving radiates out of her. She has learned to live and work in the city and has rode on various forms of transportation (planes, ships, tenders, metros, trains, golf carts, and zodiacs), flown 18 times, been on two cruises, traveled internationally and got three passport stamps, helped me go to my neice’s outdoor wedding, take my grand baby to play in the ocean for the first time, and has given me the ability to live my best life....all because you, Megan, and Goldie took a chance on us! Thank you!
