Leash laws and dog training

Yesterday leaving a dear sweet child's birthday party after dropping off my youngest I found myself  waiting for a nearly 70 year old lady walking 4 dogs.  The breeds were two boxers, a dachshund and a jack Russel.  They had nearly pulled the woman into quarters barking viciously and pulling in response to a young boy riding one of the biggest four wheelers I have ever seen.  He had been passing through the street at top speed.  His family was watching him from their front porch.

As I walked out to my van I noticed a nearby neighbor had an unleashed Chihuahua who decided to investigate.  I couldn't move my van  backwards due to the chihuahua walking freely behind my van and then as I pulled out into the road the jack russell  pulled free from her lady's leash and attacked the curious chihuahua.    I can still hear the Chihuahua's screams as it was furiously shaken by the Jack Russell.

I don't blame the Jack Russell, she was only doing what she was bred to do, but her owner hadn't trained her dogs, obviously, nor secured her dogs and I blame the owner of the chihuahua who thought it should have unsupervised unrestricted access to the neighborhood.    It was walking all over my friends  driveway as I hopped into my minivan. I later found out that the chihauhua is the neighborhood bully.

The last I saw was the four-wheeling boy's father broke up the dog attack and the chihuahua was free but injured.  

No I didn't stop to help, there were plenty of adults on hand who actually lived in that neighborhood. And the dogs were contained.  I was so shaken up I don't think I would have been anything but a gawker. Also if I had stopped I probably would have said something I would later regret, just as I would be dialing Animal Services.

St. Anthony we need some help

We need to pray to the Holy Spirit to find David Sweat and Richard Matt who are escaped prisoners who seem to have an affection for Shawshank Redemption.   But let's face it, Andy in the movie was a falsely imprisoned man.

Ideally we would love it that they turn themselves in to authorities, without danger for anyone such as police or little children.

Pray for their souls and the safety of the people they encounter.

Dear St. Anthony please pray for us.


Update:  Dogs may have picked up the escaped mens' scent.

The End Which Doors Song are You?

And I wasted entirely too much time on other OkCupid tests,  I should have done this one first!

Your result for The Which DOORS song are you?  Test...


14 shaman,  8 reveller,  5 exile,  5 nihilist and  1 other
This is the end, beautiful friend. This is the end, my only friend ... the end


THE END is the exception to the four variables ... you cannot get this song by scoring high or low in any of these variables. You can only score THE END if you look beyond the four variables and see the true essence of The Doors.  And apparently you have.  Congratulations and kudos. You have achieved what most others could not.

For the rest of the songs, I've included brief write-ups to describe and/or explain each of them. However I'm not going to write anything about The End. It's sheer greatness would negate any attempt I made to define it. In fact I've long since come to the conclusion that The End is essentially undefinable.


Hopefully Morrison isn't rolling over in his grave right now. I mean assuming he's actually in there to begin with.
Take The Which DOORS song are you?  Test at HelloQuizzy

Lola thinks Dave McGowan knows more about the Doors than anyone in the way it matters most.  Check out his book "Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon" and website.    He also has a very interesting take on the Lincoln Assassination.  Don't waste your time with, as Michael Savage calls him, the Leprechaun, Bill O'Reilley's "Killing Lincoln".

Blessed are Those Who Mourn

Freddie Gray's mother in her grief ask for peace:

And  more than 4000 lives lost is mourned in Nepal.  

And a 12 year old girl is being searched for here in Florida. :
I pray that she is found safe for her and her family's sake.  Dear St. Anthony please pray for her safe return!

UDATE 4/29  She was found safe!

I find myself turning to Our Lord and His Holy Angels and Saints for Help in all these events.

Thank you Founding Fathers for the Copyright Laws

Marvin Gaye's children awarded 7 million dollars.   A little schmear of justice.

 Story here:

  I would like the American people to be awarded an apology for the terrible lyrics and video by Robin Thicke. 

Here is an awesome party song. see for yourself:

Time Tested Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise,
walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
even more than things,
have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed;
Never throw out anybody.
Remember, If you ever need a helping hand,
you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older,
you will discover that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries,
or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
the passion that she shows,
and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows! --
-Sam Levenson
