MAR 4 2021

 maybe this will be pawprint day...  we apparently are going to remain frozen until next monday. .. 

so as i sit around with foot warmers in my slippers i have a few things to finish ..
. and by then i may hve 2 shots  so maybe i can  regain my life outside this room
..not complaining... it could be much worse..... but like teh mail call area, i have   several rolls of rope hanging "around"
along with supplies for   paw prints... puppy breath,  monkey fists,  poker chip, bloodline tree,  mouse and rat trap equipment .TV and computers....
. not to mention th e age related equipment like heating pads,  recharging hearing aid, a jogging machime ,  bathroom scales and pills.  i n about a 12 x 12 room.
but it is warm.... i like warm. being inactive is  a terrible thing  for " the elderly".. there is only  one way....

i did buy dr sanja gupta's book on mental sharpness.. on cd's in my car...... and  after 4 discs... his big push... only push ---is exercise. 
so i do 33 situps and100 strides a day-the rest of my exercise is .. cutting out humdreds of little paper leaves 
 and arguing with this computer. while trying not to spill coffee on the alt key.
------
usta beeeeee... you turned on your computer.. the screen  was black... you typed in "instructions" in white print.. typed in "run" 
  and it did exactly what you had programmed it to do.... my first program carefully typ0ed out my name..
. spelled wrong... 25 times.. because i has\d miscounted an "if- then" loop.. but   bugs were easily figured out and corrected.
from there i wrote a whole magazing system's accounting and distribution.  with minimal trouble....  AND THEN.....

 then came the improvement..  turn it on ... in  wild colors.. pictures of glaciers or  
 big ben sliding around the screen while the speeker blared  ave maria and you learned the only way to fix anything is to  unplug it or hire a 12 year old kid to fix it;
MOSTLY IT DID WHAT IT WANTED TO... SOMETIMES IN GREEK...  WHY CAN'T I HAVE A BASIC TYPWRITER KIND OF THING THAT DOES NOT GET LOST PREDICTING  OUTPUT OF THE ISLE OF CRETE OR LANGERHANS.

i signed teh certificate making daisy an official service dog-- with great hopes they will proceed as hunter and wendy... up and down many hills and trails.

WHEN YOU DON'T DO ANYTHING....... NOTHING HAPPENS !!

mar 3 2021

 you know you are getting old when you put teh foot warmer things in your slippers.. .. this morning i hae broken a standeard rule of.moineno coffee befor completely dressed... but i did have a handy reporters notepadnext to me in bed... so the notes have been made....


like. ----how often an accident  provides a successful solution to a problem... like pennicillin?? mail call last night-- you saw me open the box with the 1100 foot roll of white paper--- (and carefully slicing my finger on the seareaeted edge-- boy is that an efficient slicer....). because i needed a large supply of white paper 24" wide to continue the sdp pedigerr "tree" with all the litters on tiny little leaves carefully cut out by me when  the outside weather was not friendly.... welllll this paper will also provice the basis for the PPPP project 

namely  to proliferate the Paw Print Production Project.  

2021 3 3

 

It offends my sense of originality to even consider making one print and running it through a duplicating machine .. granted the paw print would then be perfectly shaped. but not original .. so in an effort to maintain authenticity .. I figure if bentley  can do it on our vinyl floor then he ought to be able to do it on paper ..And since the black permanent marker ink that he put on the floor , we have received four containers of brightly colored washable ink , so they ought to be cheerful .. the one thing we may lose is the absorbancy of the Brown paper bag but such is life .  I anticipate at this project will require considerably less bending then the one by one method used to imprint the floor .  to be continued .......

Now with regard to this reporter's notebook that I keep in bed with me in case I get any brilliant ideas at midnight ,  I had to cross off at least six ideas as being too political but this  concept still needs to be re verified ..Big in the animal business I could only equate it to what is known as the get of sire classes in any of these animals shows from horses to cattle to dogs -----  once in my life I researched back to find out how many valedictorians of classes at MIT we're Oriental .. and being an animal breeder I'm thinking it certainly is a valid question to wonder why that's true .. Which brings me very quickly to the case of celebrating the lives of two high school sweethearts who met 70 years ago and married ... producing four children who produced 16 grandchildren who produced 32 great grandchildren .. and then get everybody in a picture where if you count that's over 50 people all started with two high school sweethearts and I think in the Bible it says the problem is lust .. Now The Bible does not discuss the result of of two people turning to 52 and the   cumulative trash  produced  during the 70 odd years by 52 people is the reason we damn well better explore Mars ..because we're gonna need a place to escape to ..  I have a real problem with any group anywhere who refuses to wear masks --and I shudder to think how many children they have ---because they probably haven't even heard of anything like physical distance ..

 

COV --  it is very significant that the war powers act ?? something like that ..  it is has been applied to the manufacturing capabilities in the country so that Merck has joined Johnson and Johnson to produce many more vials of vaccine ... finally progress is being made .. and I should have my second shot this week .. but I'm still hearing of people looking for their first .. to keep track of who has what shot where is certainly a monumental problem but not insurmountable with the computerization of the project .

  wow this is late.....

counterculture???? now????  it has happened before....
in my generation what people most feared  in ?1969? was ANOTHER  "woodstock concert" where anyone from all over the 48 ( IT WAS THEN)  states invited themselves to some dairy  farmer's field in  bethel new york. -- 400,000 people (was the official estimate)  with 100,000 volkswagons plus , 20,000 old school busses  14 tons of MARIJUANA   not much clothing, pouring rain AND NOT ONE PORTAPOTTIE...---  at least then it was peaceful.. so peaceful that most didn't even know it was raINING...  IT WAS FROM THAT ERA THAT  COUSIN ROBERTA  STARTED WEST IN AN OLD CADDIE..

THE PART I FORGOT  TO MENTION WAS.... SHE HAD GOT HERSELF A GOVERM\NMENT GRANT OF SOME KIND TOI MAKE A PHOTO HISTORY OF "THE COUNTERCULTURE."  IT DOES GOOGLE.    Across the Great Divide - Roberta Price   AND SHE SPEAKS ABOUT THE PHOTOS.-- WHICH INCLUDE THE HUGE ROCK AND THE GREAT 8 SIDED HOUSE THEY BUILT AROUND IT.... HAVING PREVIOUSLY BUILT ONLY   A BRICK AND BOARD BOOKCASE...  INTERESTING./
--
NOW ON TH E TOPIC OF BUILDING....
2021 3 2

I had a request to repeat this description ... so for anyone who is a child---  has a child ----or has a grandchild--   this is how you make at harness to turn their head into a Unicorn’S  head .. OR ANY OTHER VARIETY OF THINGS.  it's also how I used to set cropped ears to make great Dane HAVE  perked up ears which I don't do anymore at any rate------   it all starts with a handful of the white wire coat hangers that men's shirts come on ---they're usually free for a handful of cleaners if you don't have a man short supply of them -----if you lie one on the desk  and with strong wire cutter cut off the hook about an inch and two from the twisty part ,  then locate the center of the long pie ce and mark 2 1/2 inches on either side for Childs head--- then with your head hand holding the rest down bend the LEFT  side vertical to the desk  ----  now if you take it off the desk and bend the other half around your thigh---- you're half done so do it again with another coat hanger  .. bending the right side vertical and the left side around your other thigh ..give it enough duct tape just wrap the whole thing together being careful to make sure the two cut edges are prevented from getting further apart I think you'll see what that's about .. the two parts you bent around your thigh obviously go around the child's head ---I use either short piece of cloth or preferably a gauze pad that's unwound into a log strip makes a very comfortable TIDED PIECE underneath the chin ... it is very  possible to pad the wire head/chin part by wrapping cotton in elect tape... in colors...
 
THIS IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE WITH THE BRASS COAT HANGERS  WHICH ARRE MUCH TOO STRONG.. THE WHITE WIRE ONES ARE PERFECT.  YOU WILL BE SURPRISED AT HOW STURDY AND COMFORTABLE THIS HARNESS IS... MAYBE WE SHOULD SEE IF. TI CAN BE REDESIGNED TO DEAL WITH COV 19 MASKS???????
NOW WOULD N’T THAT BE SOMETHING... HAVE AT IT.--------********* SEND THE ROYALITIES TO SDP !!!
NOW WITH REGARD TO NOT BURNING TH E HOUSE DOWN...  
Rubbing two sticks together has to be the worst way  to start a fire... the second worst way .. is newspapers and Cardboard and kindling ....but if you want to start it  quick an eighth of a Cup of kerosene will do amazing things .. but you have to remember  the absolutely critical part is that you may not throw the Karacene at the logs if there still is any kind of spark in there because Karacene is an oil and  will very quietly burned as long as it's in one lump or puddle .. kerosene and diesel will explode if sprayed as in an engine ....  and it will create a heck of a bang and scared the hell out of you if you do anything like toss it into a fire ..so I don't wanna do that ....I remember way back in the days of our kids circus .. I owned a piece of equipment for some horse or another which was basically a stainless steel huge syringe thing ---it didn't really have a needle at the other end just a big tube .. and I thought that would be perfect to deliver kerosene underneath logs for a fire .. and I couldn't remember the name of it .. so I had to call up my friend Brian who told me it's a dose syringe .. and now most of them come in plastic which wasn't going to work for me but I did Google it and they still do make them in stainless steel so I have bought 1 which hopefully will be safer then trying to pour or throw that throw is a bad bad word... kerosene because as it goes bang you pull your hand back and distribute of trail of kerosene which could lead back on your floor .. that whole thing is a bad deal 'dispense" is better. but not wanting to go back to the twisted newspaper this dose syringe should work perfectly keeping in mind I have a fire extinguisher right at my back when I do this ..
For an update on the repair of our chimney .. the company has booked the first part of April because we need 48 degrees temperature and no rain in order to be able to reline our chimney ...
------
One of my favorite videos people have said me is of Bella and George coming down the stairs in the Science Museum and how carefully George is matching Bell's every move ..---well I have a second favorite video now of Josh going up and down his hallway with Daisy on one side and one crutch on the other and he is walking .. as in 1 foot after the other walking .. he turns around comes back and falls down and then kisses Daisy on the head .. he's walking it is so much more natural ..then two crotches or whatever ... 
and I just gotta email from his mother ... who said he's getting very courageous .. and seems to be following in the Hunter and Wendy mode of walking for real .
------
Good morning! I was again blown away by my boy and Daisy! He had a well check at his pediatricians office. Her office is on the third floor. On the way down, he decided to take the stairs all the way down. Daisy on one side railing on the other. Quick and easy. Who knew!?! He even took a couple stairs with a reciprocal gait. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen him do that. Thanks to everyone at SDP, these two are going to be unstoppable!

mar 1 2021

 how many of you remember specific  things your mother told you to do....  or in this case to ignore...  at the moment i can specifically remember being stood up on my own two feet for my mother to read the riot act about something..... i already did a DD on the time she stood me in the living room and said " if a policeman tells you to stop... you do exactly that and nothing else.... you can argue the details later.".. and she had on her "kitchen apron.... white..ish.." i remember that especially since it was eye level to me..... 

then yesterday  i had reason to remember " we're going to visit aunt Marie..  she is going to look very funny ..and i don't want you staring or asking questions".. when we got there i did steal a glance or two.... and Marie, who was slender, had a humongous bump in her middle.... which i did hear referred to as "another cousin"  i was dying to ask how the cousin got in there. but i was afraid....
well yesterday i got an email from that humongous bump---- turned out to be ... Roberta Price.

here's where it gets interesting....."Berta" is exceedingly bright... she can spell.. graduated from vassar.. and wrote a book.... Huerfano..  something about the "counterculture.."  There is a picture of berta on the cover ---buck naked.. carrying an armful of marijuana... you can all rush to amazon to see...
along the way... before the book got written.. i heard stories about berta not utalizing the splendid education that vassar had given her (??? given??? probably cost a fortune//) and living in-- or oiut of a big old car ?? caddy? with some guy... as the year went on..  much was said by my father particularly about "living on a rock,  out on some hillside in colorado" .. several years later... i decided i had to go see this ..... by  plane, bus, and rental car.. i still had to walk a couple miles to get to the "commune" ... it was a shock....
2021 3 1

 

Berta was indeed living literally on some rock on a hillside in Colorado the part that everyone else had missed was that the engineering and skills that went into building this house around this rock was astronomical .. her house was organized so that the sun came through a window to warm this rock which was 8 feet across maybe and that rock would hold the warmth to keep the basic cold away the rest of the heat was provided by and absolutely beautiful antique iron coal cookstove very much like the one I have in my kitchen only hers was usable where mine is covered with microwave and things .. they had no electricity they grew their own vegetables had their own source of milk I think it was goats I think there was a horse around for transportation and she and this guy we're not the only couple there ...nor was their house on a rock the only one that was it's incredible feat of engineering ..I seem to remember a very good size Dome house which was kind of where they all met there are there were six 810 couples I've forgotten but ..m.  I seem to remember there were one or two children involved at which point this group of people as the commune had enough degrees among all of them to be an entire school system so they did their own education too .. it is a very interesting read .and I don't know if one could actually go out and find that house on the rock .. .. With a population explosion what it is probably the whole place is a high rise with an accompanying.  Mall..  but it would be fun to try and look it up on Google earth search .

 

last I knew Roberta was living in maybe Arizona .. And is a lawyer ? ...  i.e. within what is now relatively “normal’ society”. As good or bad as that might be... I think she got the law degree after the commune episode...Huerfano  is very interesting to read--- I think ---- and Furthermore I'm in it on page 35 or something -- I think she refers to me as one of her normal family .. which says a whole bunch of things for the rest of the people we’re related to.   Certainly I had only positive things to say about the commune and their way of organization ..  their engineering expertise ,,adjust the concept of what they were and we're not .

moving on

what day would be complete without the vomit report ..  and I'm very happy to report that  malarkey had projectile vomiting and produced one of my socks .hopefully he ate only one of them ... he seems fine .

empty is bad....as opposed to bentlye. Who did not eat his morning cookies.. so his tummy is empty, except for bile.. which he is proceeding to get rid of....  a dane habit...

--

the other medical issue I plan to attack today is I really have to do something about Bentley and his masculine appendages ..  I have known for over a year. That  there is something wrong ..but he's totally healthy .. and an older dog is not the best candidate for anesthesia .. but this is getting ridiculous and he still seems absolutely fine in spite of this appendage which approaches the size of a baseball ... it seems to be growing exponentially now .. so I will be talking to a surgeon ... hopefully the Doctor Who operated on scarlet .

--

Other indoor project is cutting out little leaves to try and continue our family tree of our  Great Dane dogs....    among other things I will be buying some white paper on a roll  butcher paper???   in order to continue upward with the current tree of 47 litters. With many many little black leaves ----trimmed in blue for black male pups – red for females.. them. Grey   merles and  spotted harle s. males and female... i.e.  that's many many  little bits of paper in paper cups....

n   

n  We made  it to march..... ... so far.

FEB 28 2021

 THE BENTLEY FOOTPRINT PROJECT HAS STARTED.. 

LIFT   #1. FOOT....RUB ON INKPAD.. SET  #1 FOOT ON  SLICE OF BROWN BAG.... LIFT #2.  FOOT TO GET THE PRESSURE OF #1 FOOT ON THE BAG....PUT  #2 FOOT DOWN... PICK UP #1 FOOT AND REMOVE BAG .... SET BAG ON SOFA... WHILE BENTLEY PUTS #1 FOOT UP AND DOWN AND UP AND DOWN AND UP AND DOWN. THUS REMOVING  FROM HIS FOOT, ANY REMAINING INK ON THE VINYL FLOOR..  THERE ARE 2 KINDS OF INK PADS.. WASHABLE AND PERMANENT-- WE WERE USING THE PERMANENT ONE.... AND IT IS....   THUS ILLUSTRATING THE "KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE GOAL... "   AND WHY THIS IS CALLED CRAZY ACRES...   I KIND OF LIKE BENTLEY PAW PRINTS ALL OVER THE  LIGHT TAN FLOOR ...  IT  ADDS TO THE AMBIANCE .  AND IT IS ONE THING ON TH E FLOOR THAT I PROBABLY WON'T TRIP OVER.

 I DID SAY I WOULD SEND A PAWPRINT TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO MADE AN EXTRA EFFORT AND BOUGHT CHICKEN BRICKS. OVVER TH HOLIDAY???  WELL WE ARE TRYING......

 2021 2 28
 
To everyone who bought bricks over New Years .. the holiday season is always awkward to try and sell out .. and now is that COV continues I cAN  see it difficult for people tO come up with the $10 per number .. but whatever you can do without having a problem we certainly do appreciate it somehow we will figure it out .I am very hopeful that we get another payroll protection  PLAN. whatever loan ..  and that will take the pressure off too .. so with one foot firmly planted in mid air .. we go on .
It's the constant support FROM  you camera people but gave me the courage to go ahead and breed another litter with Reese and Watson ...  I'm sure someone wrote down the details like the date .. I seem to remember the ides of April ... income tax day ..  we should have puppies by then .

Speaking of the education of our dogs as opposed to training ... are recipients are supposed to get re certified on some sort of routine basis and if they can't make it here ..  there they send me a video of their dog working .. and I just got one for Zeppelin ..   You've all seen how George is really in step with Bella literally and figuratively ..  well Zeppelin is every bit as in tune with (.....Oh dear you think I'm going to remember her name I'm not ..  my specialty is dogs ).. In this video for re certification I always ask that they show me how they put the harness on the dog .. and I can tell by the dogs reaction having that harness slipped over their head , whether or not they approve the whole thing or look forward to it ... or whatever -----Zeppelin stands perfectly still and SEEMS ANXIOUS TO HAVE THAT HARNESS ON... AND THEN WATCHES  EVERY MOVEMENT IN ANTICIPATION OF “WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU NEXT” - AND  VERY CAREFULLY PERFORMS TASKS WE NEVER DID TEACH.
Including pulling her wheelchair probably fast enough to also get thrown out of Costco for speeding ..
Riding around in a wheelchair is a lot of things ..   one of 'em is damn slow .. So it really is kind of fun if you have to go through the airport 90 miles an hour knocking people out of the way ..  Maybe with these wheelchair pulling dogs we should fit the harness with one of those UUUHHHAAA horns that could sit right on top of the harness .  it would add something ..
one of the large problems with all of these disabilities ..  is they re so damn serious they don't leave much room for creative fun. you hardly see anybody smiling when they're pushing a wheelchair ....  or hobbling around on crutches .. yet every once in a  while we get somebody here who can see humor in impossible situations .
100 years ago my family decided to meet in Las Vegas for a weekend ..  and there was no way I could keep up with that crowd except to have winter Janine pushed me in a wheelchair ..  and I remember with a great deal of noise and effort being pushed up an escalator which was going down we made it  ..  20 years ago the collection of my nieces nephews and daughters ..all job dozens of miles a day and we're very fit and capable   it was a fun trip ..
 
THE DEPRESSION  of my alt key it's not the only problem with this computer although it is so much better ----I am still stuck with not knowing where these lines come from ...and the fact that it will just stop mid sentence if I'm typing and not watching  ---- Linda can type and watch the screen I type it watch my fingers and I still don't know where they go ... but once the computer starts having weird problems they can get weirder and weirder...
for example in trying to print out the litters of dogs we've had since 2016 so that I can try and extend our family tree to bring it to more current ,I was having an awful time trying to make the numbers come out right ..  several people sent me their rendition of the problem .. and it took me a lot of time to identify the fact that this computer or the printer or something was stuck on legal size paper wHILE actually putting it on regular size paper so that printing out a spreadsheet I was minus 4 lINES  of data .. without any real clue that that it happened .. it must have taken me a couple hours to try and identify the problem to SEE the fact that I was missing puppies then another 20 minutes to figure out why ..
so lesson of the day do not underestimate the ability of a computer to screw everything up .
---
IN KEEPING  WITH SOME GOAL.....  YOU CAN HELP BY GETTING MORE PEOPLE ADDICTED TO THE CAMERAS.      IF EACH OF YOU GOT ONE MORE PERSON.........:)

FEB 27 2021

 YOU DON'T APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE TIL  YOU DON'T HAVE IT.-- LIKE A WORKING KEYBOARD....SO IF THAT IS THE LESSON OF THE DAY, WHERE DO I START MY APPRECIATIOON??  RUNNING WATER WOULD BE HIGH ON TH E LIST- 

I REMEMBER......100 YEARS AGO.. GOING THRU AN EXERCISE OF-- STUCK ON AN  UNINHABITED ISLAND AND YOU COULD HAVE AN UNLIMITED SUPPLY OF 3 ITEMS WHAT WOIULD THEY BE?   MY FIRST WAS HOT WATER... SECOND. SHEETS OF 6MM PLASTIC AND 3RD  THOSE  OAT NATURE BAR THINGS. 
BUT WE HAVE BECOME  IMPOSSIBLY CONNECTED TO  ARTIFICAL  SUPPORT, MY WORLD CAN COME APART IF THE KERIG COFFEE MAKER IS SLOW TO PRODUCE COFFEE..  I BET THERE IS NOT A KID AROUND WHO HAS MADE COFFEE DRAINING WATER THRU A PAPER TOWEL.. OR GAUZE BANDAGE...LET ALONE SQUIRTED COFFEE CREAMER OUT OF A FRIENDLY COW.

WHICH BRINGS ME TO THE MINIMUM WAGE.....

2021 2 27

 

Firstly it never occurred to me that these congress people stayed beyond 5:00 o'clock in the afternoon so to have them there passing bills or whatever they do at midnight was a shocker to me ..  and then have to argue with them over the fact that they're doing this 15 minimum wage all wrong ..kept me awake at night .. I kept explaining to them and no one was listening .. that there is a very sincere bit of logic to a man or a woman working 40 hours a week and still being in poverty so I'd totally agree with a $15 per hour wage for people ... let me define what is not quite people and that is the age group between 16 and 21 .. they're all full of energy and don't have the knowledge to go with it usually with a (few exceptions like Bill Gates) most teenagers should work for nothing until they learn to be worth something and that's called an internship of some kind .. but if this 16 to 21 year old is it being responsible and reliable then they should be paid pocket money while they continue to live with their parents and around their parents insurance and all those other funny things and if they made 750 an hour some of them might be worth it .. but I'm not sure that I could come up with a 16 year old who's work ethic or generic knowledge would  be worth much more than 750 an hour .. 

As a matter of fact communities around here along with the district attorney's office have approved service dog project as a place to send children to do what's known as community service .. and depending on what or why they're here--- the chores I saw assign can vary ..  if it's the district attorney's office and you're in for driving under the influence you had to be pretty stupid so therefore you get assigned repairing the stone walls and rolling rocks around in the freezing cold ...  because I wouldn't trust you to handle any of my animals or being around them for that matter you're better off way out in the Woods ..,.however if you need community service because of the Honor Society requirements then I'm more inclined to let you work in the barn around the animals because I know I could ask you to observe how much water did that dog drink when you go to refill the bucket and if it's full to the top let the barn manager know .. I don't think I'd let any of them use power tools or drive the tractor but they do have a lot of energy ..  that as I sit here without energy I can make  USE OF... WE NEED INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS

 

It's hard to believe that uh I male child could get to be 20 years old and not no how to hammer a nail into a piece of wood or how to jumpstart a dead battery in a car .. but I have seen this .. and I also have seen a female child with the energy and curiosity to want to learn how to hammer nails and jumpstart cars .. because along with my friend Mike Rowe there is a terrable deficiency in the younger generation ..

now I can remember my grandparents making that same kind of statement ... take my grandmother .. raise five children in Westchester County New York on a farm . and there were several unique things ..  she was about 5 foot tall ---four of her five children were Mail and about 6 foot tall .. and I never heard one of 'em swear ...ever .. I also look forward to Sunday dinner with her becausw I don't know what she put in the chicken gravy but I have never had better chicken gravy since .

so here I am 80 years later having raised two children who both swear and eat bottled chicken gravy .. and don't even know about my grandmother ..

 

Just an aside .... since I started writing this,  a cousin of mine ---Richard price -- got in contact with me from maybe Goshen NY .. I would love to hear from him as to whether he ever remembers grandma prices chicken gravy. IN THE SUNDAY DINNERS AT. ??14 ROOSEVELT PLACE IN NEWBURGH...

NEXT PROBLEM.....

LYNNE IS HAVING TO GIVE UP HER MONITORING OF THE PUPPY HILL CAMERA—WHICH SHE HAS DONE BEAUTIFULLY    FOR Y. E. A. R. S.  ...   FROM MIDNIGHT OT 6AM....  WHEN THE OVERNIGHT PERSON TAKES OVER... IS THERE ANYONE WHO HAS TO BE UP AT THOSE HOURS  and could report on who is outside the kennels and if they are quiet or barking.    And what else you hear.. like owls, people yelling,  airplanes.. whisatles,  cars, fischer cats or coyotes

Here is a sample of last nights...

FEB 26 2021B

 COMPUTER REPORT... I HAD THE STARBUCKS VIRUS...... ONE SMALL DRIBBLE OF COFFEE WITH SUGAR HAD GLUED MY ALT KEY DOWN CAUSING MY KEYBOARD TO SPEQAK GREEK... AND I WAS SO SURE I HAD SOME WILD VIRUS-- I HAD BEEN TRAINEED TO THINK THAT... I AM ASHAMED..... I DON'T LIKE TO BE TRAINED. WILLIE LETOURNEAU WAS TOTALLY LACKING IN THE DEFEATEST ATTITUDE I HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO HAVE...  HE SPENT 2 MINUTES CLICKING AROUND TH ENORMAL THINGS ALL YOU RECOMMENDED.. AND GOT NO WHERE.. SO HE WHIPPED OUT HIS PHONE AND TYOED IN  "WHAT THE #$%^&* MAKES TH KEYBOARD GREEK". AND IT SAID  " YOUR ALT KEY IS STUCK"---.. ONCE AGAIN PROVING COURAGE AND CREATIVE THINKING CAN BEAT THE  BOOK.

WE ALL WERE THINKING  IF YOU CAN SET THE SYSTEM TO BE GREEK, THEN YOU SHOULD GO TO "SYSTEMS".  AND SAY "PLEASE NO GREEK" AND IT WOULD GO AWAY.  WHICH REMINDS ME OF 2 "OTHER IGNORE THE  OBVIOUS TIMES... ..
WE WERE. 100 YEARS AGO.... INSTALLING A MEDICAL BILLING COMPUTER--  THE FIRST IN MASS.... AND WE COULD NOT GET IT TO WORK AT ALL.. WHEN SOMEONE SAID "DID YOU TURN IT ON?"  AND WE HAD NOT;

SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT.... EVEN IN THE MOST SERIOUS OF SITUATIONS, THINGS GET SAID.....AND  THERE  IS OFTEN HUMOR. "WELL USUALLY DURING TAKE OFF THINGS  FALL OFF.. LIKE FLAPS OR LANDING GEAR..."...   HOWEVER THOSE STAND ALONE STATEMENTS WERE PRETTY FUNNY --- THE OUT OF CONTEXT   IS WHAT  KEEPS THE INTERNET IN BUSINESS.

 I HAVE ENJOYED WATCHING TH E LIVE FEED OF CONGRESS THIS PAST ( FRIGIDLY COLD)  WEEK..... AND BEFORE YOU SEND ME "WATCH CNN.. DON'T WATCH CNN .. WATCH FOX DON'T WATCH FOX..."  ... LIVE MEANS IT DOES NOT MATTER.....I WILL WATCH ANY LIVE FEED ...( MOSTLY DR POL...) SO --- FOR CONCEPT ONLY THIS LIVE FEED... " HOW LONG WILL  THE NATIONAL GUARD BE OUT FRONT?" .... SILENCE... " WHO IS IN CHARGE OF TELLING THEM TO GO?" ... SILENCE.....I AM SURE... OR I SHOULD BE  SURE.... BUT THE IMMAGE OF 125 NATIONAL GUARD STANDING AROUND THE CAPITAL BECAUSE  NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHO SHOULD TELL THEM TO STAY OR GO. I FOUND AMUSING.......   THEY THEN WENT ON TO DISCUSS.....STICKING AROUND FOR A FEW MORE SEEKS MAKES SENSE...

FYI-- LEARNING FROM THE  KEYBOARD COFFEE EPO\ISODE,  IT SEEMS THE KEYBOARDS WITH THOSE VERY FLAT KEYS ARE PRONE TO STUCK KEYS BECAUSE YOU CAN NOT TELL (VERY WELL) THAT THEY ARE STUCK DOWN.

SPEAKING OF APPROACH TO PROBLEMS.........NOW IT IS  ABOUT RATS.....  YOU REMEMBER JUDY AND I HAD A NEARLY PERFECT RAT ERADICATION PROJECT GOING...  SHE WOULD DEFINE THE AREA NEEDING ATTENTION.. AND  I- ----HAVING PERFECTED THE ART OF NOT PINCHING FINGERS WHILE SETTING RAT TRAPS.... --- WOULD HAND HER A SET TRAP ON A CARDBOARD TO BE PLACED WHERE. THE DOGS WOULD NOT SNIFF IT OUT.   SINCE  WE DO NOT KNOW OF ANY RAPTOR  REHABILITATORS IN THE AREA. WE NO LONGER PUT THE NEWLY DECEASED RATS IN  BAGS  IN THE GUEST HOUSE FREEZER  TO BE DISTRIBUTED BY THE "FROZEN RODENT DELIVERY COMPANY"
AND UNTIL  OUR  CP'S NOTICED  ONE RUNNING AROUND THE  KITCHEN.. I DID NOT REALIZE WE HAD A PROBLEM.. AGAIN... SO DONNA SET 3 AND WE GOT 2 LAST NIGHT.  
NOW THEY TELL ME --- NO I FOUND OUT ...----THE FRONT PORCH IS A BIGGER PROBLEM.. BECAUSE THEY HAVE CHEWED THRU THE P;ASTIC TRASH CAN AND I HEARD LINDA ASKING SOMEONE TO GO BUY METAL TRASH CANS.... I STOPPED THAT PURCHASE. BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN RAts chew thru metal trash cans too.. AND THE BETTER SOLUTION  IS TO CUT DOWN THE NUMBERS WITH THE SNAP TRAPS----NEVER EVER SHOULD YOU USE POIZON  WHERE THERE ARE DOGS.. BECAUSE A DEAD RAT IS A PERFECT CHEW TOY --
-----
AND HERE IS ANOTHER ODD NOTICABLE THING TO KNOTICE..
THOSE METAL TRASH CANS OFTEN USED TO STORE ANIMAL FOOD.... HAVE A SLIGHTLY DOMED LID-- SO THE WATER RUNS OFF-- EXCEPT.....   WITH ANY KIND OF USE.. LIKE PUSHING DOWN ON TH E LID TO  CLOSE IT.... THAT DOME BECOMES INVERTED -- COUPLE THAT WITHTHE FACT THAT THE HANDLE IS PUT ON WITH RIVETS-- THAT Are not waterproof---  THE LID BECOMES A RAIN COLLECTION DEVICE AND IT ALL DRIPS DOWN INTO THE TRASH-- OR FEED--- MAKING A MOLDY MESS AT THE BOTTOM AND PEOPLE OFTEN DON'T REALIZE THE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT  PITCH OF THE LID IS THE CULPRIT.    CURED BY ONE GOOD YANK ON THE HANDLE.
