      If I hadn’t been diligently reading the last thread, I would have beat ya. But congratulation on the Gold, my friend.

        Thank you my friend {{{57}}} How’s Kasper doing?

          Thank you so much for asking. Well, he has the “bad” stones that will almost definitely recur, particularly in bichon males. I have been researching like crazy, and there may be some dietary changes that can keep them from recurring. It will require cooking for him, and then I might as well shift to cooking for the whole fur family. At the very least, if he is screened often enough we can catch the stones early and flush them out without surgery. This was a not a pleasant experience.

          But how is he, you ask? His usual naughty self, terribly smug that he is getting homemade food from Mommy.

          everything organic: chicken, white rice, peas, a little salmon, yogurt and cottage cheese, with a particular supplement. I have been working with a holistic vet online who thinks the diet can be simplified a lot more and he has had excellent results getting these stones under control.

          But seriously – I cooked for Kasper on Sunday and didn’t bother to cook for us!

            Awwww, you will have those two terribly spoiled for sure now!
            I’m glad he’s on the road to mending and that you are ready to adjust his diet accordingly.

            You’re a goooooood mommy 🙂

              Spoiled? My dogs? How could you, Gail!

              Kasper was 9 months old when we adopted him and he was very easy to train because he is totally motivated by food. He learned to sit, “give paw”, “lay down”, with great ease. I told Mr. 57 that if he didn’t end up the best behaved dog in the world, it would be our own damned fault.

              Well, he’s a little monster who will “give paw” if you have food to give him. The rest of his behavior is outrageous, because he’s soooooo cute. My prediction came to fruition.

      They released the US air crew but kept the plane for months and I’m not sure but I heard when we got the plane it was stripped of all the electronics.

      I saw that too Sue. I cried myself, when PBO entered the House chamber; and when CSPAN followed him to the end, after he left, I cried again when he turned around to look “one last time”. So sad 😦

    Hillary was effusive in her praise of POTUS speech on twitter. Didn’t hear a peep from Bernie. His body language was very negative during the speech. I think that guy really despises and is envious of Pres Obama. If he hopes to win the Obama coalition that’s a pretty stupid way to behave. His insistence on supporting the gun lobby doesn’t help either.

    • January 13, 2016 at 3:29 pm

      I’m not sure he despises the president. He’s just an angry man. His anger is the base of his political engagement. He is NOT of optimistic nature. He will NEVER be satisfied with any progress unless it’s a REVOLUTION.

      Anger is justified when you see all the injustice, income inequality, etc. But Bernie Sander’s anger is not productive and doesn’t lead to effective political action. He is good at denouncing, but would be awful at delivering results in a country as diverse as America is.

      He’s the perfect “emoprog”.

      He will be like this as long as he lives.

      • January 13, 2016 at 3:31 pm

        Seems to me when he couldn’t give the President any credit at all for the world accord on Climate Action, dismissed it as a “failure of leadership” that qualifies as contempt.

    Hi! Catching up …… ♫ is so very hard to do. 😉

    Even though I’m a bit out of touch, I’m assuming everyone is as euphoric as I have been since last night.

        Damn…8 yrs in and he’s still treated like a “rock star.” Remember when the MSM/GOP used this term as a slur on then Senator Obama, when he garnered huge crowds? Good times, good times. 🙂

    Winning at SOTU: Miss Edith Childs. Losing: Kim Davis’ Mullet

    The 2016 State of the Union Address (and last of the Obama Administration) was full of entertainment. Y’all know I watch some of these shows to be the lady on the stoop roasting everyone. This is why people miss me sometimes when I don’t live-tweet shows and events. You’re basically missing Miss Benita.

    ANTYWAY, in the one hour that President Obama spoke, he commanded my attention fully. Unless he didn’t because certain people almost stole his shine. Let me take that back. Someone DID steal Barack’s shine and her name is Edith Childs, a councilmember from Greenwood, South Carolina.

    Please get these eye riches and behold Miss Edith in her glory.

    Now you know good and damb well you gotta call her Miss Edith. Don’t walk around calling her “Edith” like she’s your age mate. WHO RAISED YOU? WOLVES?

    Please get into this woman and get your life. The moment I saw her on my screen looking like her outfit was sponsored by God’s favor, I HOLLERED. The sequins hat was what got my attention first, sitting on her scalp perched like a crown because she is a QUEEN. Miss Edith is my patronus. If dementors ever came around me, she’d just stop them with the shine of being saved, then the shine from her outfit. I know she got a glitter brooch that says “Jesus” like my Granny did.

    She is everything I aspire to be. Cranky, bedazzled and judging everyone. She’s sitting there like she wants to take a switch to Paul Ryan’s non-clapping ass. You know he spent most of the speech looking like someone didn’t cut the crust off his peanut butter and jelly sammich like he asked. Miss Edith might have been staring him down, wondering why he can’t respect the office of the President by putting his palms together two good times.

    Miss Edith will be my mentor, if it’s God’s will because she got things to teach me, like how to let people know how unbothered I am with one look. Is she looking for mentees? Where do I apply? Am I worthy? These are just a few questions I have for Miss Edith. I am but a humble millennial looking to get cantankerous before I even qualify for AARP. Can she lead me to the light?

    I know she can, because she just seems like a good church mother. You know the one who’s been on the Usher Board for 25 years, and she is the one who calls the #alphet colors every Sunday. And you know if you do not own a lavender blouse, it is up to you to look up and down to find one. Pray about it, chile. The Lord will make a way. She won’t lead you astray. These color schemes were fasted on and she touched and agreed upon them with the co-Head Usher, therefore they must come to pass.

    Mother Childs is the Matron Saint of Not Giving a Damb and she is my everything. Now, her scowl is not to be confused with another’s.

    On the other end of the spectrum of life-giving resplendence is the human tofu, Kim Davis. Somehow, she managed to be in the building, and I’m mad at whoever invited her. I know it wasn’t the Obamas. Was she there because of affirmative action? I think they needed to balance out the SLAY quotient of the night. Amidst all those bright suits and LAID hair, they needed to bring the level of FIERCE down so someone had Kim show up. In this alphet:

    “…The “Alright” rapper recalled that one time he sat down with Obama to briefly discuss points that affect disadvantaged communities. From “topics concerning the inner cities, the problem, the solutions,” to ways we can start “embracing the youth,” and realizing the importance of mentorship, K. Dot and the leader of the free world assumably drafted ways to improve those aforementioned topics. One of the standout messages within the visual was mentorship. Throughout the 60-second short, Lamar recounts the positive impact of having a big brother or sister. “As a kid, having a mentor was vital to me. Always being there when it counted allowed me to make some of the most important decisions while growing up. So it’s only right that I mentor a younger person with the same wisdom that was given to me. If it helps the next kid become a better person in life, I will forever be aware of my influence and pay it forward” But one statement in particular that summed up the entire meeting was said by Obama, per Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett: “Can you believe that we’re both sitting in this Oval Office?” Mind-blowing indeed.”

    The crowds awaiting President Obama in the cold and snow are huge. Beautiful to see this expression of well-earned and well-deserved regard his people have for their President.

    I hope I get to see the entire speech on TV. Going to check if C-SPAN will carry it.
    If not, online works
