Funny story for dog lovers:

Persistent dog works hard to bury bone in kitchen floor

This goofy dog is proof that old habits die hard. Watch Canaan hard at work burying his bone in the kitchen floor and try not to laugh. That's right, Canaan: Dig that hole, drop in the bone and cover it up with dirt. Never mind that you're scratching up slippery, hard linoleum, not soft, brown earth. We were going to redecorate anyway. Good boy! You got the job done! Yeah, we're pretty sure that no one will find it.

Usually around the first week of May I do planting in pots like nasturtiums and basil. Aphids and too much rain destroyed my lettuce last year. The idea of spring rejuvenates me. It's nice to hear that you're relaxing today. I agree with you about AW. He reminds me f an aged vino haha always getting finer.The greatest blessings come from simple things;)
haha, you sound like me. I will get some of it done now, drawers, cabinets, and closets scaled down and organized and get to the scrubbing next month or April. I am with you, the idea and tease of Spring has rejuvenated me too. I just thought I would relax today. Ancient Wolf is a rare breed. World could use so many more like him. He has been an inspiration to us all for over two years.

New proof that asteroid impact dealt the dinosaurs a quick death blow
Dinosaurs doom came quicker after asteroid than previously thought

Reuters | 08 February, 2013 09:55
The eyes of a Tyrannosaurus Rex replica. File picture.

Dinosaurs died off about 33 000 years after an asteroid hit the Earth, much sooner than scientists had believed, and the asteroid may not have been the sole cause of extinction, according to a study.

A happy dog story:

Move over, Lassie: Real-life dog to the rescue for homeless man

Forget Lassie.

A homeless man outside Olympia, Wash., is thanking his dog, Buddy, for heroics that may well have saved his life.

On Wednesday afternoon, the man – whose identity is not being released by police – tucked a note into his dog’s harness with a hastily written plea for help. Since early that morning he had been unable to move, lying on the floor of the makeshift home he had constructed in the woods near Tumwater.

“This was his last-ditch effort. He thought he was going to die,” said Detective Jen Kolb of the Tumwater Police Department.

Luckily, a woman who frequently walked her dog through the woods recognized Buddy and noticed the note. The word “HELP” was scribbled in large font, with the plea:“Send help. No joke. Cannot walk.”
The woman quickly dialed 911, but what was missing from the SOS was the man’s name or any indication of where he was. But on the other side of the scrap paper were directions to the Washington state Department of Social and Health Services, which frequently works with the area’s homeless.

Police scoured the woods, known to have a large homeless population, looking for make-shift shelters where the injured man may have been. After a short search, the man was found and transported to a hospital in Olympia where he was treated and released.

“This was his best friend, and the one he relied on when he needed someone the most,” said Kolb.“It’s one of those heartwarming stories that kind of remind you of Lassie."

The man is recovering with friends, while Buddy has been taken in by animal services.

Ah, coffee and memories of a childhood Grade School poem nudged on by your query....(Incidentally, it was a faded shade of green)

I never saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one.
But I can tell you anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.(first penned in 1895).

So can anyone else remember the Grade School tabloid known as "The Weekly Reader"? I can't remember anything we read other than the back bage always had a cartoon about an elephant and a monkey. I believe it was "Dumbo and Peanuts".

And we trudged through the snow about 3/4 mile from here at the Homestead to the end of the road (up hill both ways, of course LOL) and stood out in the cold waiting on the school bus for that vast wealth of knowledge?

Oh, the exciting day when the engine fell out of that old jalopy they called a "school bus" and plowed into the ground and lifted the front of the bus off the ground, and we were all tardy.

Or the day we all learned about the Miracle of Life when we went down to the school's 6-hole outhouse and looked over the fence at Homer's old sow and watched it give birth to a litter of piglets.

Good morn , AW and all... So many fond memories keep me going daily. Some I guess I should forget, but some will always warm my heart, even those that broke it , I guess. Hope we can all save at least one..

An old man was walking along the beach, when he came upon a part of the sand where thousands of starfish had washed ashore. A little further down the beach he saw a young woman, who was picking up the starfish one at a time and tossing them back into the ocean. "Oh you silly girl," he exclaimed. "You can't possibly save all of these starfish. There's too many." The woman smiled and said, "I know. But I can save this one, " and she tossed another into the ocean, "and this one", toss, "and this one..."

Good mornin Friends. I read the posts from People wishing me well in some of the situations I am currently in.. I would like to say Thank You.

I have freed myself of one of them. Another seems intent on keeping me tore up for a while.

"She" has been quite a mess in my life. It was my bad decision to get involved. I came to my senses a few monthes ago and tried to end the situation. It's a difficult thing to do. I still have my weaknesses. She knows how to play on them. A lonesome 51 y/o man whose mind and body still work like they did when he was in his 20's can become quite painfully entangled with a 30 y/o woman.

My intent has always been to help her out of the totally messed up life she leads. I was convinced that's what she wanted.. Now it's clear she intends to continue down the same old path. While I am going the opposite direction, she takes a little piece of my heart with her.

Good Morning Blueminer, and all. I have found that for me personally that the best way to maintain Peace on my Life's trail, is to focus on the Blessings I have had in the past and the one's I have today and the hopes for future new ones and not so much on the bad or what is missing even though it is a piece of my heart.

Let the bad times stay in the shadows until they eventually fade away. That may or may not work for everyone, but it has been my source of comfort. Have a Good Day everyone. I think if I dress warmly, I should be able to get outside to enjoy today's blessings. I don't do so well indoors as outdoors.

Louisville Home Of Thomas Edison Celebrates Inventor's 166th Birthday

Edison lived in Butchertown house from 1866 to 1867
LOUISVILLE - The inventor of the lightbulb would turn 166 this weekend and you can celebrate and see his Louisville connections.

The Thomas Edison House in Butchertown is offering visitors a chance to see where Edison lived in 1866 and 1867. Edison worked as a telgraph operator during that time at the Western Union office at Main and Second Street.

Edison was fired from that job for experimenting with a battery and spilling sulphuric acid through the floorboards onto the desk of his boss below.
The Edison House is offering half price admission from 10 to 3 Saturday and kids under 12 are free. There will also be a lightbulb shaped birthday cake served.

EMP Threat from solar flares:

'Earth will have 15 minutes to protect electronics'
Scientists say there will be short notice of destructive plasma cloud from solar superstorm.

WASHINGTON – Scientists around the globe are joining those in the United States in becoming alarmed at the possibility of a plasma cloud from a solar superstorm that could wipe out vast electronics networks, because they say Earth would have only a notice of about 15 minutes.

U.S. space scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrator and the National Aeronautic Space Administration’s Goddard Space Flight Center have been expressing concern over what is fast becoming a “solar storm maximum.”
Unless the nation is adequately protected, the sheer impact alone from such anticipated solar storms will result in the loss of critical U.S. electrical infrastructures that could send the country back into an early 19th century agrarian society. Back then, such an event would have had no effect, since there was no electricity and most people had farms and grew their own food.

Experts have warned that such a major solar storm occurrence actually could be worse than back in the 19th century due to the considerable increase in population and the total reliance by society on electricity and technology for life-sustaining needs. Besides all that, most people today don’t grow their own food.

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside. "That laundry is not very clean; she doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap." Her husband looks on, remaining silent. Every time her neighbor hangs her wash to dry, the young woman makes the same comments. A month later, the woman is surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and says to her husband: "Look, she's finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this? " The husband replies, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows." And so it is with life... What we see when watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look.

Cute story about judging that book by it's cover..
