EASTER EGG hunt isn't popular over here,
it never caught on.
Weather very poor just now,
but, generally speaking snow is seldom
a feature of Easter!
lol, but *these days* one never knows!
Thanks for the info :)

It was funny. He flared about 4 feet away from me and sat on a branch looking at me like he was saying what the hell is that :)

Good day to all!
Most our American folk know that the NCAA basketball championship is in full swing. Brighteyes and I have gone head to head in our brackets over the years. We are tied at 5 each! This year MY bracket is starting to bleed! Oh well, there is still hope... I think. Indiana and Louisville!
Have a fun Friday all!

LOL re the sweet beagle Tony1..
I have a good combo in a dog >>
LAB/COLLIE mix..
she's very bright & clever and
good company, picks up tricks
and words unusually
quickly..
When I dislocated my shoulder last summer,
she was a little deprived of exercise so I
taught her to run upstairs with a tennis
ball and when on the top step to pitch it down
and run after it,
and back upstairs..[good exercise]!
a variation on the theme was, she drop
it gently from the top letting it bop
down each step 'til I caught it and threw
it up again to repeat the performance!
'Twas a pleasure to teach her
and she loved it.
now if she's bored she brings the ball
to me and throws it at my feet.
Folks might be interested in this..

Did you enjoy your birthday, Tony?
I had a Lab/Springer cross for 17 years - thought it would be a magic combination. What did I know? She was a cunning little minx, sweet-natured as could be, but a real rogue underneath it. The number of times I stood on the Malvern Hills for an hour waiting for her to decide it was time to come back! Missed her like crazy when she died.

Collies are very bright. Had a Scottish Border Collie (they're quite a bit bigger than the Welsh) and he was superb. A rescue dog, but he understood exactly what you said to him. First day I had him on the hills (he was chipped etc), he was pulling like crazy: he'd been in the rescue kennels and wanted to run. So I decided to risk it and slipped his lead off. Like a bullet, he went straight up the Worcestershire Beacon for about 800 yeards. My heart sank. Then he lay down and looked at me. I whistled once and he was back down to my heel in a flash. Never had to train him, he knew in an instant what I wanted. He died four years ago and I still miss him. Sadly, the nature of my work at the moment precludes having another dog, it wouldn't be fair. But one day...

Birthday was a quiet one, which at my age suits me fine - trying to forget 'em!

She's a hoot. House dog not hunting dog. Chow hound, then if she hones in on something, forget it! She ain't coming back!!
It's the pack instinct, even the domestic ones have it.

Sadly, the trip to the USA is off, for this year at least. Have just got back from the doc's after the second heavy dose meds failed to clear up the throat infection. As I suspected he might, he wants me to see a specialist, so can't make any plans and should it get sorted, the ski season in Colorado will be over, which was one of the reasons for the visit. Oh well, there's always next year.

Didn't think civil cases could be retried. Thought double jeopardy applied there as well, doesn't it?
I'm open to correction on this one, I'm sure Tally with his background kinows more on it than I do, but isn't it possible to bring a civil chatrge in addition to the criminal one - I know thaqt can be done in the UK.

civil is penalty of reward or a penalty of monetary value ...

a criminal is a fine and confinement or both

example:
you taken my car and wrecked it...
you were found not guilty because I left the car running .....

however I can file suit and make you pay for the damage to car , because you caused it

the later being a penalty , not confinement

The state brings a criminal charge and the individual brings a civil

Interesting post & thanks..

Yes indeed,'Collies' ARE particularly
intelligent [not saying so because I have
a collie mix]

In most survey they always come in on top re intelligence,
followed closely by the poodle!

My lady dog is a beauty, ie > she 'has it' in looks and intelligence

but... she is also

rather anti-social >

'ROARS' out the car window at certain sections of
the population;

AND ..

to my endless embarrassment,
these always seem to includ >

folks who look different! > in wheelchairs!! anyone carrying
a walking stick or walking aid!!
men dressed in high vis jackets! LOL...

You spoke so tenderly of your dog..
and I can see clearly why you cannot have another..
pity really..

as you seem SO tuned in to 'how a dog ticks'

which is a rarity, I know!

Also,

be always proud of your birthday..
[as we all should be]-
considering

it is the day [chosen by fate] YOU entered this world -
and that day will ALWAYS be special..

Far more examples to prove that rumor. A run of the mill black man accused if molesting young children; a black man accused of killing his white ex wife.....you really think those poor middle class defendants would have gotten acquitted????
The rich have the mans to escape the country, bribe officials, hire top lawyers, they know the law and run things in a way that is quasi-legal at first glance, hire computer experts who can hide information, etc etc ....

And some of the people in politics and other legal areas are often business associates and buddies... as well as poeple they donated big money to for their campaigns.

A system might be designed to be fair but all systems can be manipulated or circumvented.

You have a beagle? We had one - Parker by name - failed hunt dog. Hopeless - two brain cells, one of which involved food, one which involved getting on the scent of a fox. When the latter kicked in, over-rode any other thoughts in the little lad's skull!
My dog is part beagle ... super freindly .. if a burgler entered he'd probably greet him with waging tail and follow him around while he grabs all the valuables.

He's a house dog (plus back yard). if he gets out front he will run off and explore the neighbours houses.(has snuck out a few times, we had to go searching) He also does not know to stay off the road to avoid cars.

Me, I'm not a sports minded person so I just kick back and listen to those of you who are. I would nothing to contribute. We had a March Madness pool chart in the CU branch ----- I thought it was a football pool!!!
I'm happy to just learn something and listen to you rugby fans discuss the weekend game.
....now back to my beagle's latest antics.........
I can't claim to be a rugby fan really, that was a one-off
match I felt compelled to watch...more of a football fan and
that is only a recent development. England and San Marino
are playing as I speak, but I can't get into it.
Too funny about the March Madness pool chart...:)

Had to laugh at your description of your dog Franko...he does
sound a good natured soul, had a GS one time would welcome
anybody in the house, but the mere fact he was there was a deterrant to anybody with intent.

Saw the weather conditions in Cornwall on Sky News this morning Tony, and this evening also. Utterly dreadful..terrible about
the lady whose house collapsed around her.
Really bad in Northern Ireland too, we are very lucky just here touch wood, although just a few miles away they are having it rough.
Sorry to hear your throat infection is hanging on...no doubt you
will be taking anti-biotics, but have you considered Manuka Honey?
