Blog Update

“Things seem to be zooming today,” Admin says.

“Many thanks to Mike Baker,” Spence says.

“Technology marches on, as we always say.”

“Even in Stovernia?”

“Not sure about that. Stovernia has its own codes.”

“Did you ever read P.G. Wodehouse’s The Code of the Woosters?”

“Of course. One of the best-plotted novels I know. Do people still read him?”

“Let’s throw it out there.”

Welcome Bella & Casey Jo, Maxwell (with Julia), Echo.

    A voice from the past. My mother always said that there is no rest for the wicked. We’ve been busy trying to figure out what we ever did that was so bad. Tried to post the calendar page yesterday and couldn’t do it. Here goes another try. Glad April, the month from Hades, has passed and we’ll try to get back more often in May.

    Good morning TYB, we have missed you.

    Someone on the blog (not us), reads P.G. Wodehouse. I think either Dan mentioned him in his writings, or maybe Staff or her dad.

    Have to go back and read the late posts from last night. Certainly hope Spence and Admin are right about the blog problems. Yesterday was a challenge.

    Good morning B&M! Good morning, TYB!

    I was beginning to wonder about you, Tyb. I missed you as well.

    I still think there are problems with the Chet’s Friends” pictures. Soemtimes they are there, sometimes not.

    Wolfie: Strong prayers and good thoughts out to your mom. Any word on your boys?

    Belle Starr: Take good care of your two-legged. Make sure the quilt is tucked in nice and tight.

    Hi Bertie…….

    Tyb, thanks for your calendar page!

    BTW: There is a mighty handsome husky, named Echo on Chet’s Friends page. (But never as handsome as you, Siber!)

    Admin: Good point, Rose. Will pass that along.

    Thank you, Admin! I appreciate your help with this.

    Admin: I’m noticing that one used to be able to click on the FOM picture at the right, and it would enlarge the photo. Now it brings you directly back to Chet’s Friends page starting with the most recent photos added.

    I just finished last night’s posts and see that DJ and Spencer posted there this morning. It is funny so don’t miss it. Maybe they will join us again today.

  10. OleyHowlers
    9:35 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Good morning to all. This blog is so fast today, we might miss reading some posts!

    Have never read The Code of the Woosters, but would like to hear more about it.

    Siber, did you see this: Hank DeBruin, one of the 2 Sibe teams, recounts the race:

  11. B.Stover
    9:38 am on May 2nd, 2012

    There is very advanced technology in Stovernia because we are tip top and up to date! And we love P.G. Wodehouse and have read all the Jeeves and Wooster books. (Loved the tv series with Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie also.)

    Thank you Mike Baker.

    Good morning all.

    Wodehouse!…That’s one of Staff’s favorite authors…grunt!…Maybe Alice’s too…sniff!…Are we back to 50 a page? Or possibly 25 a page?…sneeze!

  13. Rose
    9:40 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Sammie: Thanks for the heads up. I went back and read DJ and Spencer’s post. Verry funny.

    I hope they won’t be strangers to the blog.

    I liked Steve’s cup.

  14. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    9:54 am on May 2nd, 2012

    The blog seems to be zipping along today. I must confess that I had fun playing Marco Polo in the dark last night, after all my flashlight batteries went dead. Bella won, as usual.

  15. B.Stover
    9:55 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Yesterday’s blog had 123 posts on only 3 pages so I think we’re back to normal. (Well done Mike Baker.)

    I like Steve’s cup. Welcome DJ and Spencer.

    Wolfie: Restitution means compensation for loss and injury. The court usually decides on the amount.

    well, ahem, getting into the spirit of the thing…

    One of my pet peeves on the blog is that if you click on a FOC photo to enlarge it then you can’t read the comments about that picture. So in order to both have the bigger picture and read the comments you have to click back and forth from the big pic to the small pic.

    Which I do happily, more or less, but it would be nice if that could get fixed. Unless it is only that way on my computer?

    And It is ME ME ME that loves Pelham Grenville Wodehouse. ME!

    Code of the Woosters is one of my favorites, but I think my most favorite is Joy in the Morning.

  17. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:05 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Bee, that’s true. It does not include pain and suffering nor will it cover all the medical bills. I am just not sure how they compute the dollar amount.

    In my victim’s written statement, they ask me what jail sentence I would like to see him receive.I need to think about that. I hold no ill will toward him. He is an addict and he has two young children. Right now, I would like to see him get help and be a good father to his toddlers.

    My husband wants him locked up. (Mary here, not Wolfie.)

  18. Barb & Maggie
    10:20 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Wolfie, Did this guy have auto insurance, or will the money be coming directly from him? If the money is due from him, and he has none, it will probably just be on record as an unsatisified lien. In this state your medical bills would be paid from your own policy (up to the policy limit) and then they would go after him, but that varies from state to state. Is your own policy covering your medical bills?

    Good morning all. Steve, love your cup. I also like the size. Large amounts of caffeine can fit in there.

    Hi DJ and Spencer! You are might cute and have a sense of humor.

    I was getting FOTAS and OTAS’s gluten free cake straight with the baker. It is going to be beautiful and delicious.

    YSAS, snicker, (I’m shaking my head here) called to say that he had pulled a muscle. He was on the way to work. He’s been working as a painter (a real one) so as to make sure he had enough money for the Bachelor Party and the Wedding weekend.

    “Ah, Mom? You know how our family starts doing repeditive tasks and gets bored and then things of ways to improve and make it go faster?”

    Just so you know that really is something our family members do. Sometimes it’s great. . .

    “Well, I was using the roller and figured out the best method of covering the space without leaving any marks. But, the bending over in a bow was not the best way to end it.”

    Sometimes it’s not . .

    He’s now limping his way to work. Snort!

    Bachelor Party this WEEKEND!

  20. OleyHowlers
    10:34 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Sammie, et al. Thanks for letting us know there were more posts on yesterday’s blog this morning. Great post from Spencer and dSpencer. And we really love Steve’s cup. Where can we get one of those for Mom and Pop?
    Welcome to all the new FOC. Echo!!! please post on here…we want more of our kind!

  21. Barb & Maggie
    10:34 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Bachelor Party! Hahoooo! Good time will be had by all. Is YSAS in charge of the festivities?

    On a more serious note, got a letter from my (Barb) Sears Master Card, asking me to call about activity on my account. They said someone was trying to use my card for hotel purchases in Mexico. They thought that unusual, so charges wer declined. They have now cancelled my card # and are sending me a new card. Glad they are on the ball!

    This blog is super duper, tip top lollipop today! Thank you, Mike Baker.

    10:48 am on May 2nd, 2012

    I am IMPRESSED!! The blog is running beautifully this morning. Thank you Spence and Mike Baker. Since they are now gone I can think of all those pages yesterday as somewhat funny.

    Fellow Sibers, Thanks for the link because I hadn’t seen that. Tales of the Trail are always welcome especially in this crummy weather…in the eighties again today.

    Rio, At least the Rockies didn’t embarrass themselves last night.
    They have done well so far against the Dodgers

    Rose, Thank you. Echo is a cool name and one we have never heard before.

  24. Siber-H
    10:57 am on May 2nd, 2012

    That is a funny post by our two new Friends of the Month.

    I cannot believe how fast this blog is running. I will be spending less time online. Mom will be happy.

    Steve’s cup is cute and truthful.
    TYB, Thanks for the calandar.

    Where is Macy?

    11:00 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Barb!…I first thought you said New Mexico and I immediately suspected SiberH of using your card…snort!…But I doubt he gets down Mexico way very often…heh!heh!

    Hi everyone – Mama came out from the Mud Room to get more cawfee, so she said we could say hi.
    We love Steve’s cup too – we could make a fortune making and selling those – especially if they were personalized..”Cawfee and Rio’s Hair” hmmmmmm
    Would the Kats’ have to say “Tea and Kitty Fur”?

    We love Jeeves and Wooster too – Mama says she often feels like Jeeves to Dad’s Bertie.

    We would love to see Spencer and DJ come hang out on the blog with us – more small, white dogs with a good sense of humor are always a good thing!

    Ok – heading on back to the Mud Room – have a good day everyone, and we hope to be back late tonight to see what everyone has been up to.

    (Wolfie – tell your Mom we are holding her in our hearts, and hoping for the very best outcome on everything!)

  27. BearSpiritDog
    11:20 am on May 2nd, 2012

    (peeking out from under the quilt) is it safe to come out?
    Yes, yes it is. Thank you Mike Baker!

    Barb&Magpie: You mentioned Rise of the Planet of the Apes yesterday. Just saw it recently and liked the new twist. Still can’t beat Charlton Heston in the very first movie though.

    Wolfie: Positive thoughts and prayers for your mom.

    My goal today is to get all my clothing out of the bags and into a closet or drawer.

    Off to figure it out.

  31. Barb & Maggie
    11:33 am on May 2nd, 2012

    We like Steve’s cup too.

    We are heading into town for quick errands. BBL

    Big news here – Barb made an appointment with a DIFFERENT REALTOR to come over and check out the property next Monday. Depending on what she says, there may be some changes here (if Barb lists with her she will be quitting her job). The current realtor, Barb’s boss, has not shown the house herself – not one time- in 2 1/2 years. Does that seem a bit odd?

  32. Melanie
    11:36 am on May 2nd, 2012

    The Blog is running like Rosie! Fast and full of beauty.

    The Bachelor Party will be a short camping trip with fishing. It is a surprise. OTAS thinks he’s getting help spreading mulch.

    Need to find some poetry written by one of youse guys and steal it for my toast.

  33. Masquers
    11:36 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Wow! The blog is SUPER fast now. Admin, Thank you for getting the ball rolling. Mike Baker: Good job!
    Tyb: So happy to see you back. The May calendar page is great as usual. April a bad month you say?
    Steve: Someone here would like to have one of those giant coffee cups.
    FOTM: Nice to hear from you. Congrats on being chosen FOTM for May.
    Alice: I know you will be of great help to Staff today. Looking forward this evening to hearing of your great accomplishments.

  34. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:40 am on May 2nd, 2012

    Bags!…If Staff gets her clothes out of the bags, then there will be room to stuff Alice and AbbieTheKat into them…heh!…Or maybe just Alice…sniff!

    This was written by Bella. What do you think?

    Two souls once wandered alone,
    At last found, and to the other known,
    With passion and fidelity each does nourish
    a new growth of love bound to flourish.
    With the strength of the tree, their love does bloom,
    and takes root this day as bride and groom.

  36. OleyHowlers
    11:47 am on May 2nd, 2012

    T&G, if you make us one of those cups (or 2), we promise to buy them. Great idea for Snowhook Spring MM…just sayin’

    B&M, good idea to get a different realtor. We don’t even think you would have to quit the job. Tell her that you got advice from these here friends that it is never good to have conflict of interest.

    Also, the farm that we’ve been waiting to open for retail business had their Open House last Saturday. We didn’t know about it unitl Saturday night. This place is not all that close to us, but is within driving distance. Now we are torn. We know it is better to buy local, but we really like Caw Caw Creek.
    Here is the place closer:

    Rio, The book is in the post office. Maybe by Friday?

    My lawn is full of dandelions and Red Admiral butterflies. When you walk through the lawn the butterflies float around you. The sky is full of birdsong and the breeze is soft. Soft is the best kind of breeze there is.

    Just wonderful out here today.

  50. Barb & Maggie
    1:07 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Love the toasts. We are not good at poetry, so will leave it up to you guys.

    Went back to look at Steve’s cup again and it is gone. What happened?

    Oley, Barb would definitely be quitting her job. Her boss is a beast on the best of days. And not in a good way. She could not handle having people ask why her assistant went to another realtor. This is a woman who has never been wrong once in six years!

  55. Siber-H
    2:24 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Thanks again Baker! I am in awe about how well this blog is running.

    Two clicks and the dog hair mug could be on its way. It would make a great gift for people with Huskies.

    Melanie, We are staying out of the wedding toast discussion for the same reason Barb has. We don’t know.

  56. Melanie
    2:24 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    HI MIke Baker! Thank you (and sorry about that cane thing)

    B.Stover: I can get through this without crying. Not sure if I could otherwise.

    snickering but true!

  57. Basil and Sage
    2:27 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Barb- what’s so unusual about never being wrong? We Kats throughout history have never, ever been wrong.
    There is an old story about a Kat who once thought he might have possibly made a small error in judgement.
    He was immediately turned into a dawg

  58. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Oh, didn’t realize we saw the cup when we went back to yesterday’s posts. My bad, as they say. BTW, we HATE that

    The vision of the butterflies and the gentle breeze is wonderful. Not sure what Red Admiral butterflies are. We have a lot of what we think are buckeyes here. Sort of brown, red and white.

  61. Barb & Maggie
    3:34 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Just Googled Red Admiral butterflies, and that is what we have too. They are not Buckeyes. Same colors, but Buckeys have circles, Admirals have stripes, which is probably how they got their name! Thanks Staff.

  62. B.Stover
    3:37 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Melanie: Of course you can get through it without crying. It’s a happy occasion.

    That “West Coast” BlogPaws thing is in Utah. So we assume no plunderers will be at that one, huh?

    We would love love love to see the butterflies and dandelion lawn. If only we could feel that oh-so gentle breeze. Its a dark, dank day here. Hopefully we will be getting Staff’s gentle-breeze weather later in the week.

  64. B.Stover

    As I was out chasing butterflies around the backyard I got close to our old Hopa Crabapple tree. Or what is left of it. It is humming. That happens when it is blooming and the bees are working hard in it. There were lots of Red Admirals in the tree also so here is one of those pics.

    I got my undies put away but the socks have defeeted me. I have way more socks than any normal person would need. It is because I can only buy one kind of show to fit my terrible bad feet so I compensate with socks. At least they are less expensive.

  67. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:28 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Interview!….Did youse guys read the interview Spencer gave on BlogPaws?….snort!…Here is part of what he said.

    “There’s so much pleasure to be had in encountering others to whom dogs mean so much. Second, I plan to talk about the techniques of online brand building in support of a published product, in this case my Chet and Bernie mystery series. I’ll also talk about how to handle – in the nicest way – the occasional unruly online follower. (It can be like herding cats, if you’ll excuse the expression.)”….

    Unruly!…. I wonder who he is referring to as the unruly online follower?…grunt! …Alice!

  68. OleyHowlers
    4:31 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Staff, thanks for posting the beautiful pictures. And Mom has the same problem of overabundance of sox. She also thinks it is because she can’t wear fancy or pretty shows.

  69. Alice M. Johnson
    4:41 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Alice My Socks!

    We all know who is the unruly one here. And it is NOT Alice Q. Johnson. It is not her name that has ‘evil’ in it. NOPE. Not me!
    Must be a PUG!

    I am sure that many Blog posters would agree with me. Basil and Sage, Buddy and Masquers too. BooBear, BlueKat, Oh so many that i can’t remember them all. Snort!

    How honored we are – a visit from M. Baker his self – with a photo no less. We do thank you for smoothing things out. Pretty rough ride there for a while.

    Staff: An abundance of the little lions. Have you ever made dandelion salad?
    The pictures you posted are making us wish for that gentle breeze. sigh.

    Struggling to keep my eyes open. As I have said before, fronts that come through? Some of them just put me to sleep. It’s really bad with a Nor’easter.

    We just had Riö’s Hot Wings! Very good.

    Movie of the evening was “They Do it With Mirrors”. We made it half way through.

    Barb, the other guy had lousy insurance and it has been collected and ready to pay back my medical insurance. I have good under-insured motorist coverage but good luck getting State Farm to pay.

    Wolfie, This trip will be very good for your mom. We are happy she is going.

    (whispering) I don’t think there is such a thing as a good car insurance company.

    Does Rio know the outcome of the Rockies game? I will say nothing in case he doesn’t.

    Mood!…Someone here is in a really really bad mood tonight…wuffle!…Seems her mother took a message from her renters that they would be over here tonight to bring the rent and have a “chat”….sniff!…But her mother did not get a specific time as to when they would be here….wheeze!…So her evening plans are out the window and we are sitting her waiting for them to show up…grump!…They dropped the check off and drove away earlier – which seems weird….sniff!

    Rose: My two legged laughed at me again last night when she arrived home for work. I was so excited that I couldn’t decide between a hug and a belly rub so I did both at the same time—does this ever happen to you? She said it was more like a pawstand. She still rubbed my belly even though my tail tickled her nose as I wagged it back and forth.

    Howlers: Someone here is trying to arrange a stop in Salt Lake on her way to a work conference in Atlanta so she can attend a portion of the BlogPaws conference. Who is it? Not me, that’s for sure. But I will tell you she has two legs and her own supply of chapstick.

  102. Siber-H

    Does anyone know? Can you sue your own car insurance company?

    7:45 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    7:57 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Crap!…They are not going to show the replay till way way late, if at all…sniff!…So it doesn’t matter one way or the other.

    Renters!….Still not here….dammit!…Nothing pisses me off more than waiting on people…grump!

    8:16 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Rebecca!…snort!…That would be amazing if you figure out how to get to the BlogPaw thingy…heh!…If you get there, you could come a little farther and see me!…snorkel!

    8:31 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Spence! Just a little further and you’ll really be on the West Coast.
    Bella: How kool would that be to make it to BlogPaw. Too bad Rio can’t leave his yard or he could meet up with you there.

    BSD’s handsome face is up top right now.

    Rio: Maybe you could leave your yard while your friend is at work and we could go to the conference together. We could have an unruly conversation with Spence.

  110. Riö –The Evil Pug
    9:45 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Trip!….Beau would blab on me if I left him here with her mother…grunt!….He can be bought with Zingers, but my treatie budget has been slashed. The new computer took every dime I had and then some…sniff!… It would be fun to be unruly in front of Spencer though…heh!…His pant leg would never be the same…chuffle!

  111. Barb & Maggie
    9:52 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Wolfie, don’t know what to say about recommending a different ins. commpny. Barb’s career was with Country Insurance, which is now known as Country Financial. They were one of the top 3 in Illinois, but only started expanding to other states in the last 20-25 years. I think they are in Az. and Colo. but not Calif. Probably will never be there. Actually State Farm is considered a top knotch company, and generally good with claims. Another biggy A.S., generally doesn’t have as good of a rep. for claim handling. Not sure of some of the independent companies that you purchase thru an indep. agent, rather than a captive agent like State Farm. Look at the Best Rating, and go with companies that have an A rating. Stay away from the sub-standard carriers that market more to the high risk drivers. You might want to check out Farmers and American Family if they are in your area.

    What other online book club has a resident insurance expert slash gardening guru?—You tell me.

    Rio: I would be willing to dip into Belle Starr’s treat budget, which is the same thing as my treat budget and spring for zingers for bribing Beau.

  113. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:22 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Online!…Book club? Is that what we are?….sniff!…I never suspected that…huffle!

    Treats!…Better keep talk of bribery down low…snort!…If Beau decides to read your post all biblical hell might break loose…wheeze!

  114. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:23 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Barb, according to my attorney (I hired one on the advice of the DA but am undecided if I did the right thing) State Farm is one of the worst to pay out. It gets tricky with all the liens and lawsuits going back and forth. State Farm has yet to reimburse me the deductible. Good gravy!

    However, I am very hopeful that your house will sell SOON!

  115. Barb & Maggie
    10:31 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Thank you Rebecca, and frankly, gardening is a lot more exciting than insurance.

    Our neighbors think Barb is nutty because she doesn’t use chemicals on her garden. Barb took over some cilantro plants for them this evening, and they said they had just sprayed their 2 raised beds with Roundup to kill the weeds. Barb sort of gasped and they started shaking their heads and laughing at her. They could have pulled the weeds in 20 minutes, but instead they are going to be eating Roundup for the next two years! Who is the nutty one?

  116. Snowhook Bella
    10:36 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Rio: I thought there was talk a while ago of describing the Plunderers and Chet’s as an online book club to avoid strange looks and polite nods. Bribe? What bribe?

  117. Riö –The Evil Pug
    10:44 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Roundup!…I thought Roundup was a ground killer…snort!…If they are spraying their raised beds with ground killer they won’t be eating anything…grunt!

  118. Snowhook Bella
    10:56 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Wolfie: One of my bosses and I talk about traveling around the world while the husbands stay home. We’ve decided if, and that’s a big if, it ever happened we need to make sure we pack two things: clean undies and bail money.

  119. Barb & Maggie
    11:10 pm on May 2nd, 2012

    Wolfie, State Farm home office was right down the street from Country in Bloomington, IL. Maybe they were better in their home state, or maybe they were better years ago. Barb started in 1986, and retired from Country in 2006. When she had clients that were in accidents with State Farm insureds, they never had much problem with claims.

    Roundup–it kills existing weeds, then you can plant things in there afterwards and they will grow. Only thing is Roundup has a half-life of 60 days (I assume that means it is 50% gone in 60 days) but there will still be some residue in the soil next year. I can’t believe that some of the chemicals don’t go into the growing vegetables. Either way, we will not be eating any produce from their garden.

    We are getting heavy lightening and thunder, so will be saying good night.

    Belle Starr: (whispering) Sometimes I get soo excited I feel like I need to go to the bathroom! It happens when I get nervous too. Before I get the lightning bolts, I must go at least 5 or 6 times.

    Rio, you chunk of burning love: Even though your teeth don’t meet evenly, I think those renters need their pant legs grabbed……
