Oh, no that's a carpet remnant, on top of tall grass in an exercise pen in the backyard.

Ah well, maybe not the vibration then. :)

Does she hear if you clap your hands?

Carrot was playing with an Old English Sheepdog today. Was nice to see him looking small lol. I'm so used to seeing him as a giant puppeh, towering over adult westies and much heavier than the local collies.

Beautiful dog too. Cropped short, so you could see the powerful, lean OES build. And mismatched eyes, one brown and one ice blue like a husky's eye. Enormous black nose. I forgot how big the OES nose is. Broad but tapered muzzle and powerful head too.

Made me happy, because I so rarely see OES these days. They were really common when I was a kid. There was one I adored when I was 6 or 7, that used to live around the corner. So much so that when I was 9 and we got a puppy after four years of no furry pets, I gave him the same name: Wellington.

Happy memories, and lovely to see Carrot playing with a big dog.

Pearl's hearing seems to get better! Clapping is the least I need to do... she can now hear, looks right up out of a nap, if I call her name in an ordinary voice.

Been there, done that :)

I have a Kindle!
Arrived from Scotland with plenty of books already loaded.
I am so grateful.

And a postcard of Lenin who is watching over my bookshelf with a determined eye.
He doesn't give away what he thinks. Old poker-face.

Hey... Been awhile since I've been around these parts. Guess you can say I got tired of looking a porn and decided to drop by and tell you that I still think Obama sucks - That's okay though because Romney blows. Looks like I'm going to have to do a write in this election year but I think Reagan already died. Carter's still around but he sucks too. I wonder if Jesse Jackson is on the ticket this year? Hmm???

Anyway, the reason I posted that crap in this thread is... because it made me happy.

I'm celebrating too... I've been a member of this overly liberal forum for just over six years and so far I haven't been man-raped by a homosexual yet. However, I still have the hots for Dana if she's still around...

How 'bout it Dana??? :doit:

My luck... She'll say... :finger:

On a serious note... Just thought I'd drop in and say :thankyou: for hanging around the World Wide Web.

Hi Madman :P

Cookery Club today. Tiger was so happy to be there. I've volunteered to do both KS1 and KS2, so it's not just because he's signed up. Fills up two evenings a week.

Slight snag - the new "cookery area" is completely full of boxes and filing and the new oven is not fit for purpose. We've been using the one in the staffroom, which is a long walk from the classroom where we are prepping and children are not allowed inside (mostly because teachers are still working in there after school). Still, I have had said oven's failure witnessed by the two teachers running the clubs, so am confident something will be done. No-one pays for an oven they can't use. Except perhaps Jessica Simpson.

Rabbit is in the KS1 club too, which is great fun. I like all the childer in it - and I know them all well, so I know what is normal behaviour vs being upset or tired or showing off and can deal accordingly. Don't know the KS2 ones quite as well, but I am getting there. I know the sensible ones certainly.

Have been looking up no-bake/ practically no-bake (cheese straws @ 8 minutes for example with lots on one tray) recipes this evening. Sure the teachers will do their own research but as you know I really enjoy baking, so it's never going to be wasted time.

Also Tiger today said, "Cool potatoes."
As far as I know, only my brother and I say this. And I don't even remember why. So it has definitely come from me. I shouldn't feel happy infecting him with my verbal tics, but it really did make me smile. If he was using it all the time it would be different, but once in a while is... well, cool potatoes.

JESUS HAS RETURNED!

I know you've all been waiting for the return of our lord and savior. Since Jebus burned down in June of 2010 it seemed there was a hole in the holy landscape along I-75 near Monroe OH.

But as promised the son of god has returned.
