    Morning. This is unbelievable. It makes us all want to puke.

    Good morning, OH and everyone! Where is the puke like as we concur. So glad we have a separation of church and state.
    Did you see the comment after no uploading? “Changes coming”. Hope so.
    Snowhook Kennel, Mick and Jodi (the people not the pups) and CHobbit, batten down the hatches! It looks like a huge storm will affect your area tomorrow. Lots of gusty wind, not as bad as Nome or the islands but it looks huge 🙁
    Have a friction free Friday.

    Too disgusting to even comment. Someone here would get about 150 lashes a day!

    On to better things – off to visit Kim and relocate Peaches to her new home. BB this evening.

    Everyone have a nice day.

    Sad to hear that silver hands has crossed the bridge. Flamenco is truly an art unto itself.

    Perhaps the Iran Security Forces should be transferred to the zoo or desert.

    I’ve been having trouble writing a comment. Every time I clicked to read comments the blog went white. This was before today’s post was “revised.”

    Good morning all.

    You know,Melanie is just across the Bridge. I wonder if she and her Golden Cane can pop over for a visit with Mr Baker?

    10:08 am on November 7th, 2014

    Ummmm……Spence? The last time I checked, tomorrow is November 8. You may want to revise your facebookie post.

    Wolfie – good catch on that Nov 9 vs Saturday date on the FB post.
    Meanwhile, Mama has found a group that she says is right up her alley. Anyone else want to come?

  10. Herd of Hounds
    10:25 am on November 7th, 2014

    B&S, Sounda like our kind of group. Count us in IF the Novemver meeting can be postoned until December.
    MPM, it looks like you may get a few snow showers/flurries/flakes today!

    Signing!…I think 12-2 refers to the time of day Spencer will be putting paw to pen signing books…snort!

    We have always Loved Flamenco Guitar. Manitas de Plata lived to be 93…a very talented artist…the Master of his craft.

    The Proposed Iranian Law makes someones here sick to their stomachs.
    Not a good way to start the day. No It Is Not.

    HerbKats: Well…I Guess…November 13th is Far enough into the Future so as to ensure our attendance. Maybe…if, as the Hounds say, it is postponed to December.

    Wolfie: Yes, another Foe Paw, but you know Chet can’t count past two.

    HARK!…Changes to the Gallery Coming?? Dare we hope???

  13. Basil and Sage
    10:36 am on November 7th, 2014

    Rio – your sharp little eyes missed one. Look at the end of the FB post. It gives the date as Nov 9.

  14. Basil and Sage
    10:38 am on November 7th, 2014

    HOH and BSD – pretty funny, postponing attendance to a Procrastinators’ meeting. giggle giggle, snort ( oh dear, excuse us)

    Yesterday the power was out for hours and hours. Dark and stormy with the wind howling in the background, there was nothing to do but read by candlelight.
    Riö: You are right. 12-2 is referring to the hours, not the date. Good catch.

  16. Masquers
    10:43 am on November 7th, 2014

    Herbs: November 9…Saturday…so it does.

  17. Masquers
    10:49 am on November 7th, 2014

    Checking the F/b page…it doesn’t look like our Chet made the faux pas…it was the expo people.
    But then again, the date of the signing could be Sunday the 9th, not Katurday.
    Only time will tell.

  18. Riö -The Evil Pug
    11:08 am on November 7th, 2014

    Signing!…He posted Saturday the 8th as the signing and the New Hampshire website says Nov. 8th….grunt!…facebookie is whack-a-mole!…heh!heh!

    11:15 am on November 7th, 2014

    Working!…The good news is I am able to post on the blog this morning, knock on wood. Come here Beau…snort!

    11:17 am on November 7th, 2014

    Yesterday he posted a flyer announcing the event on this here blog. Rio, BSD, T&G check your SDDs.

    The dog news from Iran doesn’t surprise me.

    Interesting…changes coming

    Good Morning All

    I lost a bet with a friend. He said that the same actor portrayed Mycroft on Elementary and Spike on Notting Hill. I looked it up and it’s true. The actor (Rhys Ifans) also portrayed Xenophilius Lovegood on Deathly Hallows. I would never have guessed that the three characters were portrayed by the same actor.

    OOOo Changes. I wonder if Mike will have to change the way we reply to each other. yeep

  24. Siber-H
    12:27 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Staff, That thought about the changes also crossed my mind. I remember the last time it happened.

    Mollypop’s Mom, Please keep an eye on the blog. We may need you.

    I am using Google Chrome and the blog is behaving very nicely right now.

  25. Staff
    12:50 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Mr.Husky, Did you download Chrome all by yourself?

  26. Tupper's Mama
    12:50 pm on November 7th, 2014

    We are on IE and the blog is fine for us today too.

  27. Siber-H

    Staff, I did, I did

  28. Tupper's Mama

    Siber – who’s a Smart Doggie?

    I will not click on the first link because I don’t want to feel pukey or disgusted this morning. I clicked on the second one and listened for awhile. If there are dancers to watch, that sort of music is more interesting to me.

    Amalia: I will attend The November meeting of the Procrastinator & Curmudgeons in December (laughing at HOH) if we can put it off until after the holidays…how about January?

    We are packing up to drive back to Missoula today. Elliot the Massage Cat will be happy to get home. He was not impressed with the 2 Huskies next door giving him the evil eye.

  30. Staff
    1:50 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Safe drive Sister’s. sniff

    Mr.Staff and I are going out with his cousins tonight. We shall eat steak.

    Later Gators

    Amalia, thinking of you and your family.
    Rose, thinking of you also
    ML and BooBear’s Ma thinking of you too.
    Oh I am thinking of you all.

    Our snow is melting.

    Big Pacific storm coming in from Japan will mostly affect the Aleutians.
    As a result, more weather changes on the way for the rest of us – Weatherkat

    3:04 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Polar Vortex on its way to visit some of you…not me, of course.

  33. O'Howlers
    3:12 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Siber, we are getting snow next weekend!!!! Wanna come up for an extended visit?

  34. Siber-H
    3:20 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Fellow Sibers, Thank you for the invitation. I will get the Porsche ready for a road trip.

  35. Herd of Hounds
    3:33 pm on November 7th, 2014

    We just hope the Alaska contingency have all loose shiitake inside or tied down and 4 and 2 leggers have a spot out of harm’s way.

  36. BearSpiritDog
    4:08 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Hounds: Thank You for the SDD. I like Visuals.

    Siber-H: Curious to Know…What Happened on the Blog last time?
    Have a Good Road Trip and Fun Playing in the Snow.

    Heading out to the Little Store in a few. Lunchtime Coming Up!

    4:54 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Bear, Baker set up the blog like facebookie. I know he was only trying to improve it, but we rioted….led by Mollypop’s Mom.

  38. Herd of Hounds
    6:27 pm on November 7th, 2014

    T&G, (sorry) Check your SDD.

  39. Basil and Sage
    6:30 pm on November 7th, 2014

    HOH – checked, commiserated, chuckled, sighed and understand. Will be in touch later. But did you know that a good way to sanitize sponges is to wet them and stick them in the microwave on high for a few minutes?

  40. Herd of Hounds
    6:39 pm on November 7th, 2014

    B&S Thank you, we needed that 🙂

  41. Nurse Meash

    Never a dull moment on this here farm. The horse. Doc just left, after stitching up a gash in Annoe’s pastern (just above the hoof).
    Last night, I had to send Zeus to the dog doc for a ring around his eye that turned out to be a staff infection.
    And this morning was Mom’s 2nd and final phase of her root canal.
    I don’t know where they would be without my medical know-how.

  42. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:22 pm on November 7th, 2014

    T & G, we put our kitchen sponge/scrubber in the dishwasher. Is the microwave better?

  43. Mollypop's Mom
    7:22 pm on November 7th, 2014

    I have been so MIA lately because I have been apartment hunting. This is a hard thing to do and just makes my head spin. My apartment where some of you have visited is probably some of the most expensive rentals around Buffalo and I seriously need something a few hundred dollars less. I have found the spot I want in downtown Buffalo attached to a hotel, which is what I have here, and I’ll finish up everything next week I think. After that will come the move. Ugh!

  44. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    7:27 pm on November 7th, 2014

    BTW, I picked up Peaches this morning and took her to Kim’s. She let me pick her up, put her in the cat carrier, and drive her on a 2+ hour car trip. Never once bawked or squawked, or even let out 1 peep of complaint. I think she enjoys car rides.

  45. Mollypop's Mom
    7:34 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Barb, did you get any more pictures of peaches? I need one. With Lily preferably.

  46. Dawson
    7:42 pm on November 7th, 2014

    We are back in Missoula. We are dropping Elliot off and going to see 3 year old Ruby Jo and family.

    I hope the polar vortex is gone from the midwest by next week when I arrive in Mpls.

    MPM: Your apartment was so lovely but at least Loulou won’t run into the guy who trained his dog to be scary anymore.

  47. O'Howlers
    7:57 pm on November 7th, 2014

    MPM, your apartment sounded so great. We hope you love your new one just as much.
    Peaches is such a good chickie.

  48. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:04 pm on November 7th, 2014

    We might get another picture of Peaches, but probably not with Lily.
    I should have thought about taking a picture today.
    Lily wanted to bring Peaches to their house to live, and we do have a little chicken coop. However, we didn’t think it would be fair or safe for Peaches.

    At Kim’s, she will be living with about 10 other chickens, 3 of whom are her old coop-mates. She will have a nice inside home and a big grassy fenced yard. Kim is a good chicken mom.

    Brawwwwk, Peaches is one lucky chick, chick,chick, chickie.
    Oue S I L threatens us with stew recepies 🙁 Peaches, you go girl!

  50. Tupper's Mama
    8:10 pm on November 7th, 2014

    MPM – moving again. Alas, the dreaded packing boxes…

    Dawson, hope you are having a fabulous time.

    Barb – the dishwasher is fine. The microwave is faster, and kills bacteria too – as long as you don’t have a sponge that is going to melt.

    Nurse Meash – an attorney AND a nurse? Plus puppy mama, vermin terminator and Hot One? Who’s a GREAT all around doggie?

  55. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:09 pm on November 7th, 2014

    MPM, We loved your current place. You have excellent taste, so I am sure the new one will be just as beautiful.

  56. Mollypop's Mom
    9:33 pm on November 7th, 2014

    I thank you all for cheering me on about this move. Rio you can come too. Maybe it’s just that I’m getting old but this seems to me to now be a very difficult thing to do.

  57. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:09 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Moving!…I remember moving and it sucked…grunt!…I didn’t even have to do anything, but it was a big ordeal for me…sniff! …I wish we could have a Plunderer Moving Party and all the strongest could help you move and all the others could make food and buy beer for all those strong guys…heh!heh!

  58. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:55 pm on November 7th, 2014

    Okay!…There is a new episode of How to Get away with Murder and we are going to attempt to watch it and put 2 and 2 together…grunt!…Wish us luck….wheeze!

    You really make it seem so asy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I woul never understand.

    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
    get the hang off it!
