  1. I had no idea. Thank you for letting me know how unreliable she is, I appreciate it.
  2. Liability for schools to be responsible for groups of students horsing around. I can see why some schools prefer take a pass on it.
  3. I just watched this. FB, of course, where all blogs compete for viewership. Now, I don't care for the phrasing "this girl is woke!" that is our first introduction to the video, but I agree with what she is saying about the media leading us around by the nose. One thing I didn't agree with is where she says "....we are going to allow the media to create those divisions where none existed prior." I believe the divisions were there, though I also believe these two fanatical sides have been responsible for worsening the divisions. Then we have the media who are fanning the flames of something that would have died away without attention. I feel we need to be made aware of issues so we don't marginalize them but I also don't feel we need to Chicken Little the-sky-is-falling with the media.
  4. I loved the pics, that girl's smile is so worth it!
  5. Violence in response to violence as an answer? I do not think that is what the public should engage in as I feel that puts both groups in the wrong and the true purpose gets lost in criminal activity. I would prefer to see law enforcement or military handle those engaged in violence, especially during/at public demonstrations and rallies. I repeat again: I understand your clarification that Nazi German underlings, when they learned what the Furor was actually doing, rebelled against it and that Hitler and his close cronies are who are truly to blame for the mass murder of a race of people .... but today's whatever-you-want-to-call-them, despicable as their beliefs are, weren't responsible either. However, I fully agree with you that it is especially troubling that these people *know* what Hitler and his Nazis stood for and perpetrated against people, yet they persist in idolizing that ideology. I have never knowingly spoken with anyone associated with any of these hate-groups. But I live in the South and I may have spoken with people belonging to these groups while shopping or working at the Sheriff Office or Library. In fact, I live in the town/county where the last mass lynching of black people occurred in America. On my way to work I drive past the funeral home where their bodies were taken to. I think of these four (five, one of the women was pregnant) people often and I would NOT like to see this kind of violence against people return. I do agree that any of these hate-groups could become dangerous if they become further emboldened and mob mentality takes over. This is another reason I am not a fan of meeting them with violence as it is an invitation for escalation and I fear that people, innocent people, WILL die.
  6. German Nazi's were responsible for the murder of millions of people. These white supremacists, neo-nazi's and whatever-other-labels-the-media-are-calling-them .... while their beliefs are despicable, none of them are guilty or "responsible for the murder of millions of people" either.
  7. That sounds like so much fun!
  8. Ooooooooh! I love your horn bags! Wheredjagetem?
  9. ^^^ Agreed.
  10. I love what you are doing with these girls, you are giving them a foundation block for their lives. I'm sorry you are missing your brother but I hope you will be able to find some happiness in your birthday.
  11. That actually sounds like great fun!
  12. Even with the slight hiccups, you and the Coblet did FANTASTIC! What a great show for you guys and I loved all the photos!
  13. Mosely is her flea-bitten Arab mare. Pinto Thing is her other mare. I am IN LOVE with your Tack Shack!
  14. This must be so difficult for you. You *had* to try with the surgery. You *had* to know. (((hugs for you both)))
  15. *good thoughts and purrayers for Mr. Watson*
  16. (((=^..^= & you)))
  17. Personally, I wouldn't put an older cat like this through such an invasive surgery, they just don't do well, especially after hearing how he crashed after such an intense dental experience.
  18. Oh, I'm loving the orange kitties!
  19. Oh! I think I just fell in love with your ginger kitty!
  20. Floof, 12hrs post-op:
  21. Late to the party, but birthday wishes for Danyel! Today was a madhouse at the library. It was like a Monday x10. Got maybe 4-5hrs sleep last night, worrying about kitties and waking early to make sure I didn't miss my window for taking the kitties in. I had to call the vet to give them the heads-up about MaddCatt and they gave me the OK. Pretty is feeling much better tonight though her eyebrows are still a bit puffy. Flooter had to have TEN teeth pulled and the tumor on his mammary glad was encapsulated and they are confident they got it all. It has been sent off for pathology. He was anemic (heavy flea load) so I will be diligent about the flea treatment for the next few months. MaddCatt's chin was an injury. Over the phone, the vet described it as having been 'torn' from her gums and says her chin may always be a little droopy and hangy-down more than usual but she will be fine. It was already healing over and they gave her a long-acting antibiotic shot so I don't have to medicate her. Worked a 7hr day at the library and I was running from the get-go. Even my lunch was interrupted multiple times due to being short-staffed and the demand for solar eclipse glasses so high. We will probably run out of the glasses by/over the weekend and then have to disappoint people that are looking for them. Our library is going through renovations and we are staying open through it. Today there was a Hilti gun shooting nails through framing wood and into concrete - my nerves were shot. Pun intended. Carpet is almost done, About 75% of the shelves are in their permanent locations and 100% of the books on the shelves need to be shifted and the shelf aisles relabeled. Boss is planning a Shelving Party after-hours for all employees, possibly next weekend. Looking forward to that as we can pair up and each team tackle an aisle and get it knocked out fairly quickly without being interrupted by patrons.
  22. Three cats to the vet in two days. Pretty was having a bad reaction to fleas, even after treatment, so she went in for a steroid shot yesterday. Floofy is in today for a dental and a partial mastectomy to remove a lump on one of his mammary glands and MaddCatt went in as a last-minute emergency because her chin/lower jaw was horribly swollen. Husband thinks it is a bug bite and I'm hoping that is all it is.
  23. Topic was from 2010 and I haven't seen those member names participating here recently. I do like how you incorporated their initials into the name.
  24. I don't think I did sync my iPod to iTunes. I think I selected to do it manually. When I clicked on auto syncing, it stated something about removing everything and replacing it with my list in iTunes, but I didn't want to lose the music I had loaded from my home computer.
  25. I am so frustrated. I have an iPod and an iTunes account. I have both purchased music from iTunes and downloaded music from CDs on my computer on the iPod. My problem stems from not understanding how I can purchase music from iTunes, it shows up in the folders list of my iPod but then doesn't show up when I plug the iPod into my car. Also, I have purchased music from iTunes, it DOES'T show up in my iPod folders list, but DOES show up when I plug it into my car. Does anyone know what am I doing wrong? I don't know how to resolve it and trying to search online to ask my question is only leading me to dead ends, but I will continue to search as I await anyone responding here.
