feb 27 2020
i am off and running down the yellow brick road.... which is about wherre we are...at...lets face it.. we are the  world's experts on service danes...
 i need to protect us from  ideas forced on us by  people with funny letters after their names

this started because i had a job  applicant from a " dog university" in california- i have never understood why they get to  confer degrees on anyone-- or more specifically why  we can not?  who says we can't?? ???we are just... as teh wizzard says  “You’re a victim of disorganized thinking.”.. dammit
 we can put letters after our names too.... 
 so with that legal technicality  out of the way,   we as teh COLLEGE OF HARD KNOCKS ( who's colors are black and blue) could offer our first degree in  thinkology-- just like the wizzard of oz.... which would obviously have to go to bud...  so  it would be bud brown,SF,TH,.
 Megan as the super trainer would become Megan Kokaras,SF, ST, and  linda might become the SF, CD  ( calm dispenser)i would become ,SF, CH ( chef hirerer)  we will have to give this some thought.. mostly because we are the experts...    .  THERE MAY BE JUST a bit of "the valedictorian in a class of one" in this....  but bella and george have legitimized our existence. george is not the  only one... there are nearly 200-- there are no better danes than ours... or even  no better dogs than ours...
it truely takes a village... including the  truck driver who should get a TPU after his name... because without him... we are in deep doodoo.

anyone who has sent us the $10 for a chicken brick is entitled to have  SF... ( Shatupon Follower) after their names.  we need to work on the rest.
 we have some significant work to do

  Not to leave out  bentley  CGC,TD,SD  the tests he and sizzle --- have passed... cainine good citizen, therapy dog and service dog.  remember... there is a woman at the feed store who considers me a criminal for breeding a dog that does not have a CD.  .. AKC  Champion Dog,,

There is almost a gocd reason for the AKC logic---sorting out the more perfect specimins of the breed.... i know of people who have spent $60,000 "getting a cd "  on their dog-- because there are some very unusual rules  like different judges an dhow many dogs they  beat...  to help this along there is something about holding2 different dog shows on the same weekend so you get to gather points from 2 different judges without all the gas money.   i did it one better thn tht , and bought 100 blue ribbons for 15 cents each-  i had run too many horse shows to resist that simplification to the ribbon problem. i did win one dog show once- and just could not go thru that again.

german  reg..  has , i think, a more useful way...  on thier pedigree there is a number around 300 which is supposed to say how near perfect the dog is for the breed type regardless of who won what... ( i think)    SUPRA   who is sir richard's mother is 306.. i have never seen anything higher.. so i don't know what "top " is.

their pedIgrees also conatin hips A-B-C,D  they don't breed  "D" i am told.... plus ratings for elbows, hearts, entropian are usually on the pedigrees... in europe...

so let's join the lettered population...
  someone needs to design a diploma for us????

FEB 26 2020
SOMEONE FROM ARIZONA WANTS TO COME SEE "HOW WE RUN THIS BUSINESS."
.. SO I ANSWERED.....
LETS TRY "HOW THE BUSINESS RUNS ME !!"
 YOU ARE CERTAINLY WELCOME TO COME AND STAY HERE   3 DAYS AT A TIME..
( VISITORS AND FISH GO BAD AFTER 3 DAYS) 

BY ALL MEANS COME AHEAD-- IT IS REALLY A SEAT OF TEH PANTS OPERATION 
 BUT LIKE THE NEEDLEPOINT SAYS.....

HAPPY TO SHARE WITH YOU.
SUCH AS WE'VE GOT
THE LEAKS IN THE ROOF
THE SOUP IN THE POT.

NOW THAT IS A GOOD START FOR MY DAILY DOGGIE
---
THAT HANGS IN THE GUEST HOUSE - DONE BY ... AUNT MILDRED....
EVERYBODY PROBABLY HAS AN AUNT MILDRED !!  IF  YOU DON'T, I AM SORRY.
---

I AM SURE ALL OF YOU KNOW-- BY NOW-- HOW I CAN REALLY SCREW UP PAPERWORK-- ESPECIALLY PAPERWORK DESIGNED BY OTHERS. AND MORE ESPECIALLY IF IT MAKES SENSE TO OTHER--IT  USUALLY LOOKS LIKE DATA FOR DATA'S SAKE TO ME. 

WHAT IS WELL HIDDEN-- IS THAT GIVEN A BUNCH OF IMPOSSIBLE GIBBERISH,  I HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO  CREATE COMPUTER SYSTEMS TO GET OUT OF IT   WHATEVER I  PERSONALLY  NEED.... WHICH MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH WHATEVER THE REST OF THE WORLD  THINKS THEY  WANT..... 

CLASSIC  CASE YOU HAVE HEARD BEFORE ABOUT ME IN MY BLUE JEANS WITH ONE FOLDED  PIECE OF PAPER VERSUS A BLUE SUITED /POLISHED SHOES CPA WITH 1/2 INCH OF IBM PRINTOUT- I MADE MY  PAPER HAVE  WHAT I NEEDED TO KNOW  IN A FORM NO ONE ELSE IN THE WORLD COULD UNDERSTAND-- BUT SINCE THEY WERE NOT READING IT...IT WAS NO PROBLEM AND IT WAS RIGHT..
TEH 1/2 INCH COMPUTER P/O  HAD A FATAL FLAW.. 
CAUSING TEH PRESIDENT OF TH COMPANY TO GIVE ME A ---- NOT QUITE COMPLIMENT----  "I DIDN'T KNOW YOU HAD A COLLEGE DEGREE... "  

 IT ALSO CAUSED THE PRES OF THAT COMPANY TO GIVE ME  A LOT OF MONEY TO BUILD TEH KENNEL AND ARENA YOU NOW SEE....
FAST FORWARD TO ADI AND  THE RECORDS I KEEP- BASICALLY FOR MY OWN USE IN TRYING TO MANAGE SDP IN TEH BEST AND MOST EFFECIENT WAY---  WHICH OFTEN  MAKES NO SENSE TO "REGULAR " PEOPLE

 FOR EXAMPLE  FOR THE MAGAZINE    A REPORT THAT SAYS  4  4  4  4  4     IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THAN ONE THAT SAYS 4  4  3  4  4  .
THAT 3 TELLS ME A CHARGE SLIP IS MISSING--  ONE PER WEEK... 4 WEEKS A MONTH MEANS 3 IS WRONG SOMETHING THAT SAVES ME HOURS OF DETAILED WORK..
I AM SUPER AT LAZY ( COMFORTABLE AND WARM) WAYS OF DOING  SOME THINGS...  WITH SDP... THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEEN  S  S  S  S   AND MB  MB  MB  MB  WOULD EXPLAIN  TO ME.....THE RISE IN GAS EXPENSE ---IF TRAINERS GO TO SHAWS WHEN MARKET BASKET IS 5 MILES CLOSER.-- THEY ARE BOTH SUPERMARKETS.

I HEAR ADI FACILITIES ARE  PAYING THOUSANDS  OF $$$ FOR SYSTEMS THAT DON'T DO WHAT MINE DO .. THAT IS BECAUSE 
 1.  THEY DON'T KNOW/  HAVE NOT ASKED  AND
 2.  I HAVE NOT SAT STILL LONG ENOUGH TO EXPLAIN  WHAT  TEH BUNCH OF S S S S   MEANS...

2 PROBLEMS I NEED TO DEAL WITH......
I NEED TO TELL SOMEONE IN ADI--WHAT I HAVE ALREADY DONE AND WILL SHARE FOR ZERO....
AND SECONDLY... I NEED TO "CLEAN  UP" THE  REPORTS  FOR NORMAL CONSUMPTION.. . 

I THINK IT IS/WAS  CALLED MASSAGING DATA..

FEB 25 2020
BETSY'S ENTHUSIASM FOR COMPOSTING WAS OVERWHELMING AT MAIL CALL WHEN SHE DELIVERED MY SPECIAL CONTAINER  WHICH IS GOING TO HAVE TO GO N THE PORCH -- I HOPE THE RACOONS DON'T UPSET THE DOGS AS TEHY UPSET THE FOOD CONTAINERS AT 2AM...?????

THIS BRINGS UP ANOTEHER TOPIC-- THE SEPTIC TANK ---WHEN WE DUG THE TEST HOLE BEFORE WE STARTED BUILDING. IN 1979  .. THE HEALTH PERSON CAME TO INSPED=CT IT -- AND WAS ALL EXCITED AND SAID THE SOIL WAS SO FANTASTIC THAT I COULD RUN A SMALL MOTEL HERE...WHICH IS NOW JUST ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE GOING ON.... HOWEVER;;;  THERE IS A TANK -- THEN A DISTRIBUTION BOX AND LEACH FIELD- IN SPITE OF MY RELATIVE TELLING ME HOW STUPID IT WAS NOT TO HAVE THE TANK PUMPED ONCE A YEAR, IT WAS NEVER HIGH ON MY LIST- SO WHENEVER I THIUGHT ABOUT IT- WHICH WAS NOT OFTEN I WOULD GO B  UY A BIG BOX OF " RIDX" FLUSH IT AND FORGET IT. FOR ANOTHER PERIOD OF TIME... ALONG ABOUT THE START OF TEH CAMERAS   2012   AND PEOPLE STARTING TO COME HERE OFTEN I GOT INSPIRED TO HAVE IT PUMPED

THE MAN WHO PUMPED IT ( IN HIS SPOTLESSLY CLEAN STAINLESS STEEL TRUCK,) SAID AFTERWARDS  " YOURS IS IN FANTASTIC SHAPE  WHEN DID YOU HAVE IT PUMPED LAST.?"  HE COULD NOT BELIEVE I SAID  "WE PUT IT IN IN 1979 AND YOU ARE THE FIRST ONE TO PUMP IT" IF MY MATH IS CORRECT--- THAT IS 33 YEARS...  ?? OF RIDX?  

( THIS IS CONNECTING TO COMPOSTING.... REALLY....)  THIS GUY WITH HIS STAINLESS TRUCK IS AS MUCH AN EXPERT  ON SEPTIC  AS ANYONE WENT ON TO ASK HOW MANY PEOPLE LIVED HERE... ETC.... ( BETWEEN 1 AND 13 DEPENDING ON T4H GUESTS OF  CAMERA PEOPLE  ) AND ONE THING HE ASKED ABOUT WAS TEH GARBAGE DISPOSAL-- YES WE USED ONE BUT ALOT OF OUR "FOOD WASTE"  WENT TO OUR CHICKENS.  HE DECIDED I HAD TEH PERFECT  FORMULA  OF PEOPLE, CHICKENS  AND RIDX-

TO HAVE A SEPTIC SYSTEM NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY  IS NOT JUST A PHYSICAL MESS- BUT INVARIABLY MEANS THE BUILDING AND  HEQLTH INSPECTORS WILL MOVE IN WITH YOU -- IT CAN GET SOOOOO BAD THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE TO MOVE-- OR   DIG OUT AND TRUCK IN BETTER DIRT
-- 
TEH RISING OF TEH WATERS... LIKE OUR BEAVERS WHO ARE CREATING A BIG LAKE IN TEH "A" FIELD...-- OUR HOUSE ETC IS WAY ABOVE THE PROBLE3M.. BUT THE NEIGHBORS HAVE HAD A FLOOD... ONCE... AND I AM TOLD  BY A COMPANY CALLED /"BEAVER DECIEVERS"  THAT YOU CAN KILL OFF THE BEAVERS ONCE BUT IF THEY COME BACK, THEN THEY RULE. I DON'T MEAN TO WISH THEM ILL... THEY ARE ONE SET OF NEIGHBORS THAT NEVER COMPLAIN... HOWEVER-- THAT HOUSE WOULD MAKE A PERFECT  PUPPY RAISING KENNEL;  WE COULD REDO THE SEPTIC BIT ON WHAT IS NOW MY LAND. 
--
OR... JANINE ONCE OWNED A HOUSE WHERE THE SEPTIC AND LEACH WAS UPHILL FROM THE HOUSE.. AND PUMPED.... PERSONALLY , I COULD NEVER LIVE IN A HOUSE LIKE THAT-- TALK ABOUT  "HEAVY HEAVY HANGS OVER THY HEAD"   . JUST WAITING FOR TEH ELECTRICITY TO FAIL.... NOT ME... I BELIEVE IN GRAVITY !!
---
AND THEN THERE IS DIRT,  AND THE TRUCKLOADS THEREOF...
I ONLY KNOW A FEW FACTS....
1. THE GUY WHO BULLDOZED THIS PROPERTY WHEN WE BUILT..1979 .. SAID HE WOULD TOTALLY BUILD OUR HOUSE IF WE ALLOWD HIM TO MAKE THE PROPERTY A FLAT FIELD COVERED IN TOPSOIL AND GRASS. HE WAS IN TEH BUSINESS OF REPLACONG FAILED SEPTIC SYSTEMS AND NEEDED THE DIRT/ SOIL.
2. A FRIEND   NAMELSESS -- HAD A BROTHER WHO OWNED A HILL- AND DECIDED TO MAKE A  FLAT RIDING RING OUT OF IT... WHIC MEANT "GET RID OF ALL THAT HILL... BY THE TRUCKLOAD.... SOMEHOW THE HILL IS GONE AND THERE IS NO RIDING RING.
3. THE TOWN OF  SAUGUS MASS.  IS/ WAS  SOLID ROCK HILLS ...  WHICH ALMOST BY TH DAY  IS BECOMING A FLAT  WITH A FEW ODD  ROCK CLIFFS WITH THE MARKS PIPE S MAKE WHEN YOU DYNOMITE
4. TEH CITY GUY OFFERING TEH FARMER  $10,000 FOR HIS COW PASTURE., AND THE FARMER SAYING " YOU COME ROUND WITH A WHEELBARROW AND I WILL GET YOU $10,000 WORTH."

FEB 24 2020
DATA MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO EXHIST PURELY FOR DATA'S SAKE..I KNOW FULL WELL THAT THESE THINGS I GET TELLING ME H OW IMPORTANT MY OPINION IS AND I MUST REPLY IMMEDIATELY    DON'T GIVE A RIP AND JUST WANT A DONATION..... IF THOSE PAPERS WERE TO BE AUTOMATICALLY COUNTED, WOULDN'T THEY REQUIRE A #2 PENCIL?   WHATEVER  ??

THERE ARE THOSE QUESTION MY RELIANCE ON POO PICKERS FOR DATA COLLECTION.... ONE OF THE FIRST REQUIREMENTS IS TEH AVAILABILITY OF TEH DATA FOR COLLECTION... AND IF YOU HAVE TO FIND A #2 PENCIL OR A LOOSE LEAF NOTEBOOK FULL OF FORMS YOU WILL REDUCE THE AVAILABIOLTY OF DATA...
I TELL OUR  PEOPLE THEY MUST CARRY OUR POO PICKERS IN THERI BACK POCKETS    AND I DO NOT HAVE TO REMIND THEM  BECAUSE GOLDIE WILL. ABOUT THE SECOND TIME THEY DO NOT HAVE ONE, THE DOG THEY HAVE IN THE MALL WILL DECIDE TO HAVE THAT PAUSE THAT REFRESHES- AND INSTEAD OF TAKING CARE OF THAT  IMMEDIATELY THEY ARE LEFT STANDING WITH A
 GOLDIE GOTTCHA.

SO THEY CARRY POO PICKERS.
WHEN THEY PUNCH OUT-- THERE IS A PENCIL PEN NEXT TO THE CLOC.K SO THAT IS ABOUT AS CLOSE AS I CAN GE T TO PROVIDIG E  A FORM  TO SUBMIT THIER   " DATA FOR DONNA"

FOR OPENERS.…
MY  system starts with  THOSE  3 x 6 inch cardboard  
At the end of the day they write on one of the cardboard   THE DATE    name of every dog they handled, where they went, and 2 words of their  biggest problem  that day. And shove it in the coffee cup on the MY desk when theY LEAVE.
SORTING IS WHAT A COMPUTER DOES BEST. 
AS THE DATA IS SORTED  DIFFERNET WAYS,  ALL DOGS ONE WEEK…. OR ONE DOG FOR THE  YEAR ….   A REPORT ON MY DESK ALLOWS FOR SEEING  TRENDS BOTH WEEKLY AND THEN YEARLY..  WITH A QUICK GLANCE -- FROM MY WARM CHAIR… I CAN SEE....\

WHAT DOG GOT TRAINED WHAT DAY… AND WHICH ONES DID NOT…..
WHERE THEY WENT
WHAT PROBLEMS TEHRE WERE…  STAIRS---  OR GOOD  STAIRS+++,
WHAT PLANS NEED  DISCUSSION /CHANGING…
HOW MUCH TIME IS SPENT DRIVING— APROX   GAS  MILEAGE…
IS THERE A SIMILAR COMMENT  WITH THE ENTIRE LITTER
IS  ONE TRAINER HAVING A PROBEM WITH ONE DOG.
I KNOW WHAT  HAPPENS WHERE  - TO GO TO MB – MARKETBASKET  MEANS THEY DID  MEAT COUN TER  AND SHOPPING CART THINGS PROBABLY NOT STAIRS..—TOYOTA MEANS DOWN STAY FOR  2 HOURS WITH PEOPLE AND DOGS.

IT DOES REQUIRE A VERY BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF SPREADSHEETS  AND SORTING    WHICH EVERY PERSON IN TH E WORLD SEEMS TO KNOW NOW. AND ALL DATA MUST ALLOW FOR HUMAN ERROR-- AS IN KEY PUNCH....  BUT AS FOR A SOURSE TO DETERMINE TRENDS... IT IS PRETTY GOOD.

REASON I AM DOING THIS IS......     I THINK DATA COLLECTION BY  AN ORGANIZATION THAT SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS NEEDS  TO BRING THEMSELVES INTO THE NEW WORLD--
CORPORATIONS MAY NOT EXHIST BY DATA ALONE
DATA HAS TO BE A TOOL  TO BE USED BY A N AGILE HUMAN MIND.
--------
WHICH MAKES ME REMEMBER   
DONKEYS ALLOW PEOPLE TO BE IDIOTIC.
-----
 DONKS GOATS AND ELVIS ARE ALL IN ONE PASTURE NOW...  AND I AM COUNTING ONT THE DONKEYS TO KEEP IT ALL STRAIGHT... 

THE GOATS ARE SLEEPING IN THE DON'S HAY BIN... AND ELVIS STILL HAS NOT FOUND THE GENERIC WATER TUB

HE IS NOT CHASING THEM... THEY ARE ALL RUNNING IN THE SAME DIRECTION-- HE MAY BE TEH CAUSE OF TEH DIRECTIONAL RUN...... BUT THERE IS NOT THE DEGREE OF PANIC THAT THERE MIGHT BE....  SOMETIMES THEY ALL JUST STAND AROUND AN D LOOK AT EACH OTHER..   

SO MUCH FOR TODAYS POLITICAL STATEMENT.

JETRO-  cash and carry... IS TEH FYI OF THE DAY......AKA     WWW,RESTAURANTDEPOT.COM OR JETRO.COM ----- ONE STEP CHEAPER THAN COSTCO,,, IF YOU CAN DEAL WITH THE QUANTITY.   THNGS LIKE CARROTS 50 POUND BAGS..  MAYONASE GALLON JARS... THINGS LIKE THAT...

THEY ARE ALL OVER TEH COUNTRY  -- MEMBERSHIP IS FREE  IF......
  Membership is available to qualifying owners or operators of food businesses and non-profit organizations.  Membership is free, but to qualify, You must apply for membership and provide a valid reseller’s permit and tax-exempt certificate and proof that You are authorized to purchase for said business or organization. 

I MADE IT UNDER TAX EXEMPT...  NON PROFIT..... I CARRY THAT TAX EXEMPT CERTIFICATE IN MY WALLET AND JUST HAPPENED TO BE GOING BY THE PLACE ONE DAY SO I JOINED... 
YESTERDAY IT WAS FOR MORE OF THE CONTAINERS FOR "THE CHEF"  AS NOT EVERYONE IS BRINGING THEM BACK !!!  
AND FOR SPICES TO PUT IN AN OLD CROCK POT TO SPICE UP THIS JOINT...

I SAY OUR DOGS DO NOT SMELL--  THEY -----AND THE PLACE ---CERTAINLY DON'T SMELL LIKE POO AT ALL...  BUT EVEN WITH DAILY FLUFFY CHANGING.. WINTER IS DRAGGING ON-- AND HAVING THE CHEF HERE ON FRIDAYS CERTAINLY DOES CREATE A PLEASURABLE   AIRE ABOUT THE PLACE.    SINCE WE CAN NOT USE THE FIREPLACE WE NOW HAVE A SMALL CROCKPOT  THERE...WITH  ODD SPICES IN IT.
-----
plastic bags..... people have sent us a good supply for about a year... but i can see the end of the road for those....--as at least part of our world trys to get used to recycling...  i am told that.....a pizza box is recyclable-- but not if it has grease on it...
.there seem to be more "but-if's" than allow the process to be efficient-- i never did get the  numbers on the plastic bottles straight-- then the rules about glass-- ipswich now has  food waste  recycling-- or it would if i ever get tothe town hall to pick up the container..
all that stuff used to go in th chicken pen- and they loved it.. with few exceptions..  and tey gave us eggs now if i give i[pswich my garbage tehy will give me a bag of topsoil in the spring
i would prefer teh eggs..
----
our back fences are in terrible shape--  i never really finished putting them in properly... with gates swinigng to partition them off.
it worKs now... but with difficulty. 
the animals we have here now should be...
donkeys and goats  fed and watered in the donk cafe  
the 2 tiny ponys couold have a small outdoor hill  ----hay water in stall
and mr elvis beau would have another small hill -----hay water in stall
 the 8 backside kennels would then have room to run on the hill letting out one or two at a time...  
that  would leave /"tanners"  barn open for emergency drop offs  ( water and hay   hand carried from the kennels.) 

that means no goats in the ARENA.  I WISH SHE WOULD GET THOSE GOATS OUT OF HERE...

TEH SLURPING PONY NEEDS DENTAL SURGERY -  TO GET RID OF TEH "HAMPSTER CHEEKS WHICH ARE CLEARLY VISIBLE   HOPEFULLY THE SURGERY IS NOT HERE ...
........
====
  FYI-------I AM TOLD IT IS EASIER TO RENEW A PASSPORT THAN TO GET A NEW ONE..  AND TEHRE IS SOME NEW IDENTIFYING  "THING" WE WILL BE NEEDING TO DO... REQUIRIJNG A PASSPORT OR BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

FEB 21 2020

I GOT SIDETRACKED--
BASIC PROBLEM  ---WE GOT THRU THE ADI ACCREDITATION... PRIMARILY PAPERWORK
 AND ALOT OF THAT PAPERWORK WAS TRYING TO  ACCERTAIN THAT THE DOG IS TRAINED..WHICH ... IN MY OPINION.....  AND YOU ALL KNOW WHERE THAT CAN GO.
SO I AM WRITING TO THE PRES/ COMMITTEE OF ADI  WITH SUGGESTIONS.
----DIFFERENT TOPIC---
 I RODE IN JUDY'S CAR TO THE FINE ARTS BUILDING/SCHOOL AND FOUND OUT 2 THINGDS...
JUDY CAN LOOK AT HER DASHBOARD WITH IT'S LITTLE TV SCREEN PACKED WITH INFORMATION  AND 100% LOCATE ONE  PIECE OF INFORMATION ON IT.... WHILE I AM STILL IN THE TOP LEFT CORNER READING THE INDIVIDUAL WORDS ... BROWSE.. AUDIO AND WORDS LIKE THAT. SHE HAS TEH WHOLE SCREEN VISUALIZED....  ... ALL THESE YOUNG PEOPLE DO..
THIS IS A SERIOUS DISCUSSION..
I CAN SIT HERE AND CURSE THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO SOUND ON MY COMPUTER AND DECIDE TEH CAMERAS MUST BE DOWN OR YOU TUBE IS NOT WORKING OR SOME OTHER 
IMPOSSIBELE REASON WHEN SOME YOUNG KID WILL SHOW UP AND IN ONE SECOND SAY "IT IS ON MUTE"

NOW I HAVE CLICKED THAT MUTE BUTTON 1000 TIMES BEFORE, BUT WHEN THEY SAY THAT , I START AGAIN TOP LEFT  /... BROWSE... AUDIO... I DO NOT SEE OR COMPREHEND THE ENTIRE SCREEN LIKE THEY DO..
I THINK THIS IS WHY I NEVER DID WELL AT THE PIANO OR BAND...- I KNOW WHAT ALL THOSE FUNNY DRIPPLETS MEAN-- BUT BY THE TIME I GET THRU  THE FIRST  2 INCHES... EVERYONE ELSE IS 1/2 THRU THE SONG.

 YOU CAN CALL I T DYSLEXIA OR WHATEVER YOU WANT... BUT   THERE IS SOMETHINGVERY DIFFERENT IN TEH WAY I SEE  SYMBOLS ON PAPER..

ANDTHE SECONE THING .. IS   
 I AM USED TO WALKING IN BIG PLACES LIKE TEH MUSEAM OF FINE ARTS... AND HAVING PEOPLE BE AMAZED AND  PLEASENTLY SURPRISED...WITH MY DOGS...
YESTERDAY I WAS TOTALLY IGNORED... BECAUSE THEIR "DOG" IS  OUR EYORE..  OF OUR POO LITTER...WANDERING ALL OVER THE PLACE .. NO LEASH OR COLLAR.. HAPPILY GREETING SECURITY AND EVERYONE HE KNEW AT THE CAFE--- AND EVEYRYONE DID KNOW HIM'''\  HE IS HUGE--- 36 INCHES TALL-- STILL YOUNG LOOKING...  BUT HUGE.
THE ONL;Y RESPECT I COULD SQUEEZE OUT OF THE SITUATION WAS TO TELL PEOPLE BENTLEY WAS EYORES FATHER.

georgetown fire dept got a key lime pie  for cake day-- ok  so we are  "cake-ing"  ?49 states???   which ones are we not in and can we get some action going there... ???
now here is a real party... napkins and paper plates even !!!

Tacoma Fire Department, Station 13, received the
SDP informational flyer, paper plates, napkins and
a yummy chocolate cake decorated with paw prints-- 
and  their department logo.  And in return I received
huge smiles and a big thank you. Cake Day is even
better than payday!
gimi/anon

from the raft of first responders.....i picked the fire depqrtment-- because... usually..they are a nice group of people who- after they get everuthing polished- and nothing is burning down, they have time  to eat cake... i also have found that the fire departments are a great source of big strong  fit , cheerful guys who when they are off duty, can lift , carry, and push  heavy objects around,  and cheaper than hiring handymen ( who around here are getting $85 an hour)-

- i have in my life called and said "i have a case of beer here for whoever gets that mattress into  the second floor bedroom."  . couple guys showed up at shift change....

i think you will find it true  that shirt sizes for policemen will range all the way to  XXXXL to cover  an expanse of beer belly.  shirts for firemen/women just are not made that big.  they are not needed.. in spite of all the cake we feed them.

that is one of thse laws i would pass....police uniforms may not be manufactured larger than XXL.
  a 2X  size guy is substantial enough to quell most disturbances that do not require the national guard...  ... i know if i have 2 or 3 policemen- size 2X  in my living  room, it is pretty full.  and they are always very nice. ---- they have  proceedires-- like to say "have a good day" as they hand you a  speeding ticket.

they are nice also because  i have been trained to do whatever they say and argure about it later... i was told that as a very young child.... "if a policeman says stop... you stop"  and i gave my kids that same lecture. it is a critical part of anyone's education --- person or dog.

a story......teh "ultimate whoa" - we had one in a assisted living place just last week... they wanted dogs to go around to all the rooms-- which is more walking than i can do..  they said there were no other dogs in gtehr building...so judy and janine took bentley and sizzle without leash  off behind closed doors... and i sat in the lobby--  first time in my current life i have been anywhere minus a dog...let alone an assisted living.-   so when the director came by and asked if i needed an application, i was horrified...i got over that.. and thru the door came a saint bernard young dog.. with "gentle leader and spike collar just about controlling  him...i knew  bentley and sizzle were about to come thr the doors... loose...  so i flew to put myself between that saint bernard and  those doors... just as they opened.. i yelled "WHOA RIGHT THERE"  sizzle stopped-- bentley got stopped -- and judy and janine froze too...  we could have had  the worlds biggest dog fight.
 that ultimate whoa can be so critical...

now before you lecture me on no leash-- when we do these places there are many suffering from altzeimers- and those people tend to grab and hold-- because  those 2 dogs have t hat ultimate WHOA, they are safer without something others can grab...

 HAPPY  TAKE A  CAKE TO FIRE DEPARTMENTS DAY---
------
w/r/t....the  POLICE   RAID  YESTERDAY.
here we go again.. it was a comedy ...   we have deer walking our fence line....night and day----  we have seen them- they are certainly enough to set our dogs to barking... but yesterday i happened to hear them start-- and it was a high pitched bark which sdp dogs just don't do-- so i assume coyotes-- next thing --- i am usually at computer by 5am-- phone rings ==  police department-- cruiser is in our driveway and  where can he find me...?  so he leaves teh cruiser blocking the drovew so when nurse #14  comes to quietly drive to the icu house  to leave her dog. she can not get in... she is on a schedule and does not want to be late for work  so she leaves her  car and runs teh dog  all the way to the icu house...   by now every dog on the property is alerting me to the fact tht  "unusual things" have interupteed their sleep.  that is just  when i am telling the policeman that the dogs are usually very quiet-- and he is explaing to me- there is a new law.....if they bark for 15 minutes between 10 pm and 6 am he is to write me a ticket...  but he won't this time/

i would like to shoot the messenger.. but that is pointless....so it is time to get out  BOTH THE  LAWYER AND the audiometer again. but i think the way this goes is  if there is a serious complaint, they need to document it-- which dog and how long....plus the decibel and distance formula where if you have to stop everything  to see if you can hear a dog bark over the noise a refrigerator makes,  and it upsets you, then  buying a house next to me was probably not a good idea. (OR A HOUSE NEAR A FOREST EITHER...)

so this morning i am keeping an exact log--- again....  bark... no bark,,,  someone is here all night... all it takes is paper... so we will document  it again...
they are basically lazy---  that constant yipping which kennel dogs sometimes do is just not happening here...  give them a reason.. and they will bark..  but they quit if at all possible.
----

now about life insurance-  for you newcommers,--- i was frightened out of my life insurance policy.....$200.000  paid on time--- all the time  cash value grpowing... until... i began to get noitices that it had no cash value-- it took months of letters to "no address" --- phone calls to d/c phone numbers finally i did get a letter once again saying it was worth $107,000-- and i could take that out if i wanted to...  of course i wnated to... a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush...  so i cashed it and felt fortunate---- now at the age of 79 that  ins company AGI basically saved $100,000  by getting rid of me before i died and they had to pay teh $200,000. and they had a $107,000 interest free loan from me.
---
keeping that in mind.......
i hear that ad  --" if you are between teh ages of 65 and 85 you can get life insurance for $10 a month-- and it can  never be canceled  as long as you pay your premiums... 
...it is that "AS LONG AS YOU PAY YOUR PREMIUMS"   THAT GETS ME.... i bet.....they are counting on you being sick for a month before your demise... and probably not paying that last premium  so they don t have to pay your relatives as you had intended...
my father had one for $10,000 and luckly my sister paid his bills for him--  if she had not... we would have missed a payment or two and would  have had no benefit.-- so if you hav one.. put it on auto pay from teh bank???????
---
intentional  errors surround us
remember also ... i bought a voting machine from florida-  with it's hanging chads...
it opened like a book  page 1 with a list of ones to vote for......a sliver of ibm card in the center and  a page 2 of more people to vote for
page 1 had   A..B..C..D.. and page 2 had  L..M...N...O 

so if i wanted to vote for  "B  " i poked  out the chad #2.
but then when i looked very closely  chad #2 was  intended for   "L" first one on second page.  as it zigg zagged back and forth
an unfortunate  design for presidential candidate "B" who lost many votes to "L"

teh business of designing  intentional errors is a booming business ...
