ok.... big shock of the day.....
i click on a funny “bb” on my computer-- i must have thought about it at one point== but that is long gone. i don't have a clue--IN SOOOOO MANY WAYS.....
135 years ago when the cameras started.. courtney asked if i wouold mind writing something about crazy acres.. and she gave me some guy's name( 10 years ago... don't ask me to remember---?rick???)---he was very nice.. and corrected all my spelling etc... and somehow. it appeared somewhere.. so 10 years of mindless pushing of a “bb”‘ button and something hiccups to upset it.. ( apparently for just a day) and i have a bunch of CP’s asking what happened and another bunch wanting it sent to their personal email-- which i can do and don't mind, but they have to be entered one at a time. and i have to swear i have permission for concstatn contact to send them...-( which sends them to over 2000 people.. of which 1400 ( WELL 1385 TO 1415) READ IT RELIGIOUSLY EVERY DAY. SOMETIMES I. LOOK UP INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE JUST to see what time they get up in the morning and read the fool thing..
Put it this way.... aside from writing it... and posting it automatically somewhere, I don’t have a clue.----so yesterday, I ended up asking a CP. (sam)how and where people read it. She explained... and I don’t know any more than before she explained –
I need a flow chart to understand all. this. Internet stuff.... so all you folk who are internet savvy ----H..E..L..P....
The other option is to just say screw it and bash on pushing the “bb’s”. whatever they are..
So I--- other than the constant comment list of 1400 people who read this thing—I don’t know who/where/. or why....
I do know explore thinks 41% of readers are men--- I never knew where they got that from... but it is interesting.i wonder if they know about the 1400 regulars that I know about????
when does a couple dogs become a pack......or a team of people become a mob
My quandry of the day---animal training. ---- get ‘em young and train ‘em early--- like Mcdonalds happy meals—if I was a chief of police ( instead of the other end of that bell shaped curve) I would want some statistics about how many of the police force ( especially the 5 men now “ex-policemen” ) were football players as youth or in high school? Because the hour or so after the “arrest” looked just like football players walking around between “downs” ---- I never liked football--- especially the front line bunch- just huge men to push and shove..... seems a little mindless----with little individual thought.—maybe it is because I am not there... also. maybe excessive testosterone???
Then morning briefing ----they stand the policemen in a line for a daily team lecture ... certainly teaming is a huge part... but we had no individual thinkers – not only the 5 but the next 8 – there was not one to say wait a minute???
The chief—a woman—certainly axed the 5 much quicker than in any other case of questionable police behavior.
I bet they add another 8 to the legal case. They came.. they saw.. they did nothing....
or more women police to the teams???
Somehow there is/ or was a law ( do laws ever become “was” or do they just pile up?) I remember my husband questioning the good samaratin law—about if you get involved you could then be sued for not performing to expected levels—which also ran into ann and I as emt’s—there is an expectation and we were a bit below the advertised job of emt. So we never carried our little emt cards. Made helping less complicated......
SAM k tells me this daily doggie has been removed from the web i know lynn has someone in boston (? at BU? ) managing bits and pieces...in the meantime feel free to pass around my email address ( email@example.com). and i will send it to your email on request. heaven forbid you should loose track of the intensely critical news of crazy acres fallen trees or happy mules...
JAN 24 2023
To list all the stupid things that I've done would take more time than I've got---- but right up there at the top is the fact that last night I was too lazy to go out and turn my car around so that the plow would be pointed downhill---- so now I'm stuck until somebody else plows me out. my decision was further complicated by the fact that Lynn said She had arranged for Dana to plow us today.. So I took that opportunity to be lazy.
You see there is this tree---as I back down it's on my left with the house on the right and I don't think there's two feet of extra room with my car between them.. the tree shows many scars... many many scars because just as you go to go between them the ground tips ever so slightly causing you to slide sideways---- over which you have no control.. it's like a Bermuda Triangle. so I really ought to sit here... I have things to do while staring at this foolish screen...
I hope Dana shows up--if he doesn't it's lynn’s fault.. Oh the joys of being president ---because the buck stops there...you need to be the first in and last to leave.... it doesn't matter why something happened whatever happens is your fault ----or your success----however most people just love to tell you all the things that go wrong.. I don't know why anybody wants to be president of the United states there is some statistics like one in 10 gets shot at and there's a large percentage that get killed--percentage wise OSHA would never put it up with it. There would be all sorts of rules ------as I suppose there are about guns and presidents.
Which brings to mind the latest shooting where 11 people died and certainly my sympathy goes out to those families involved.
what I zeroed in on was that you had one man with a gun who was disarmed by a very courageous man without a gun who was further assisted by a friend without a gun saving dozens of lives. ---why can we not extrapolate that ratio to government control....one group with guns becoming disarmed by a larger group without guns. Thus saving thousands of lives? In 99% of the shootings I remember, there has been only one where a guy with a gun was where he needed to be with his gun and shot the bad guy. Then run that one by the school where you had literally dozens of gun toting people who just did not even try.
So arming everyone does not seem to work either.
Excitement here??? Not any yet... but Janine has lined up the purchase of a load of donkeys – probably totally wild donkeys—for us to train... on camera.... in preparation for a pack burro episode reset to october first....so I am now looking for scout leaders who want a fun outdoor project of teaching a bunch of wild donkeys to be tame( will take about 1 week and 50 pounds of carrots) and then to jog along with a person... that could take a while.... donkeys are ( usually) fun animals.
With any animals ( or humans) I am always afraid of the obsolute statement.
Exceptions rule the roost—the “YES BUTTTT ” group.
THIS IS AN OLD FAMILY PIECE.. I HAD IT COPIED... BETSY HAS THEM
