This Is What Happens

When you don’t come when I call because you are just too important to listen:

That’s right. You sit outside in the cold and snow and drizzle, while everyone else is inside getting treats.

Let this be a lesson for all of you.

    Maybe Rosie would respond to something other than dammed dog. Miss Moxie went to pets mart to have her nails clipped and they had a special that included nail, 15 minutes of grooming, and tooth brushing for $21.00. She looks pretty.

    We happened to be out of treats last night, the old German Shepard walked into the living room poked his nose into my hand, turned, strolled into the kitchen, sat down and stared at the pantry door. This happened 3 or 4 times, he switched to Mrs J, same action. He finally walked up to me and gave one of his patented Schutzhund barks and I ended up giving him a piece of roast turkey. After his win,he laid down and went to sleep in one of his spots. Bastard!

    @The Fat Kate Middleton: Nominations are meaningless. There is no process to “nominate” anybody, there’s no list of people who are up for it from which one will be picked. You can send letters to random people in Sweden saying you think the creators of My Little Pony deserve a Nobel and it will mean every bit as much as any other person sending a letter.

    Calouste says:

    @MikeJ:

    There is a process to nominate people for Nobel prizes, a fairly strict one, and the people who can put forward the nominations are either ex officio or by invitation. And in this case, because the people who put Manning forward are Icelandic MPs, they are ex officio nominators for the Nobel Peace Prize (as are members from all other Nordic parliaments). Now the Nobel Prize Committee hates this kind of publicity, so making a nomination public brings the chance your nominee gets the Prize to pretty much zero, but it is a valid and official nomination.

The care facility was located on the edge of town, adjacent to a field where mama and foal frolicked.

    @The Fat Kate Middleton:
    m_c brought it up in a previous thread. Manning was nominated by a parliamentary backbencher in Iceland who thinks he’s the bee’s knees. The backbencher’s judgement is out of whack, though; she thinks Manning’s leaks brought about the Arab Spring and the US withdrawal from Iraq, both of which were already in motion when Manning did his deeds.

    Manning himself is clearly a messed-up kid who doesn’t belong in uniform, not some great fighter for peace. There’s no way he could be a serious contender for the Peace Prize.

    OT…Did Mitt veto the health care bill in MA?

    Mitt Romney is firing back at the Obama administration on the issue of the mandate for health insurance plans (including those provided by religious schools, hospitals and other organizations) to cover contraception, ABC News reports, after White House press secretary Jay Carney noted that the same mandate was present in Massachusetts under Romney.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    “Mr. Carney needs to check his history,” Romney told reporters in Atlanta, Georgia……………………….
    Romney said that “that provision was put in Massachusetts before I was governor, and then when I was governor I tried to have it removed in our health care plan. So in the working on our health care plan I worked very hard to get the legislature to remove all of the mandated coverages, including contraception. So quite clearly he needs to understand that was a provision that got there before I did and it was one that I fought to remove.”

    Redshift says:

    @JPL: I don’t have a link handy, but as I recall, this is one of those cases where Mittens (or his administration) did something the wingnuts would hate while he was actually functioning as governor, and then after he was running for president and pretty much stopped bothering to be governor, he took some opposite wingnut-friendly action that he knew had no chance of passing in MA.

    So Mitt’s statement is actually BS, but as long as Romney is forced to try to explain why he’s not responsible for contraception and abortion measures that were passed during his administration, it’s a win for us. As LBJ so delicately put it, “I want to make the sonofabitch deny it.”

    Don’t know. I’m willing to entertain the idea that there’s more to what the prize is about than an abject lack of shooting at each other. It’s not exactly Gibbis of the Year or Nobel Doormat Prize. Not that I’m saying Obama’s getting it so early was their absolute best decision, but I generally chalk that one up to a global sigh of relief that guns blazing first was no longer the default USian way to enter a room.

    Honestly, I don’t think the kitchen is that bad. She says they are on a budget. They spent what they could afford to spend, and it is better than what they had. Looks much more functional. Many farm house sinks jut out some. I personally don’t keep multiples of things I don’t need, but alot of people keep things that
    I consider clutter.

    The only thing I would suggest to those who need to paint cabinets–don’t use what I call bed sheet white. Use a cream color. Benjamin Moore Navaho White is a good slightly almond white.

    Her writing Style is a tough read to me, and reminds me of a poor man’s Noonan. But I’ll cut her some slack on the kitchen.

    I too was once sad that I lived in a refrigerator box in an alley and ate food out of a dumpster until I met a woman whose wine refrigerator was inconveniently located in the kitchen.

    Cardinal Egan has always been an idiot, but he’s really outdone himself.

    If the really want to help Manning, they should write to the Convening Authority of his court-martial and request that the length and (outrageous) circumstances of his pre-trial detention be taken in to consideration in sentencing. I hate what he did, but I don’t think we make ourselves more secure by throwing him away for life.

    i have seen a lot on BJ about this McArdle creature. thankfully, up until now, i have managed to avoid reading her. now I understand what you’re talking about. i just skimmed the thing, which was all i could manage. i admit i felt a little queasy not to mention, icky somehow. i don’t know how some of you guys manage to actually wade through this particular type of swamp. kudos to you.

    @wrb: we used to have a backyard pony who was very insistent that we adhere to her accustomed breakfast time. When the humans did not emerge with oats in a bucket at the appropriate hour, she would jump up on the back porch and “tap” the sliding glass door with her iron-shod hoof. She trained us well; we came running with the oats before she broke the glass. Then we got smarter and started closing the curtains before bedtime so she couldn’t see us moving around inside, awake, daring not to feed Her Highness ASAP. She was a great pony, in all other respects.

    These horses are amazingly polite. Perhaps because they have mastered the oh-so-polite Look of Power.

    Giacomena (the filly) will also tremble her lower lip.

    Kind of surprising, as they are descended from Raffels, the Arab stud who famously broke his leg kicking the shit out of his stall when he wasn’t served breakfast first.

    His leg healed.

    Breakfast service improved.

    it is beyond my imagination the ability to be able to even make choices of any kind regarding my kitchen with the exception of replacing a failed major appliance, like everything else, nothing gets replaced until it fails. there are some pretty “frightful” things going on in my walls as well, i’m sure. considering my washer and dryer are stuffed into a tiny kitchen, i suppose i’ll just have to expand to make room for the wine refrigerator.

    @wrb:

    Our Mother horse come to our bedroom window at dawn every and just looks. In a polite, respectful and friendly way, but one that says “you know that my children and I are hungry.”

    That is so awesome.. I wish a horse would come to my bedroom window and say hello. Of course, I’m on the second floor, I might be frightened but maybe a little small part of me thinks that perhaps Pegasus came to visit!
