Congratulations Brewski!

“Had to oil the thing first,” Spence says. “It’s a little cranky since Irene.”

“But it came up with a winner?”

    Good morning, y’all! We’re early today! Of course, it would be a better morning if I was the FOM — dagnabbit! — but it’s still a pretty tiptop morning anyway! See y’all later, after Mom gets home from the library.

    I love that we’re going to have a Brewski everyday for a month!

    We’ll probably get quite giddy here!

    Melanie, We here are having a brewski every evening – O”Douls Amber. It is quite delish, and tastes exactly like real beer without the bad stuff.

    Kelly’s FIL (speaking of too much bad stuff) is at the nursing home and thinks he is at a resort! The guy’s mind is very muddled. They are not sure it is temporary…..

    Now, off to the Crazy Lady land, for 6 hours.

    Recently we ordered 2 cookbooks, I think it was from Wookie. Is it possible to change that and get 3? I think they were around $30.00 +S & H. We decided we are not good at taking it somewhere and having more made.

    Or at this point do we have to do something different? BBL

    Barb: I’ve ordered four hardcover copies of the cookbook through SharedBooks.com. (I have one that I ordered previously.) I couldn’t get Liz’s cover as the cover on the hardcover because it is a pdf rather than a picture. There may be a way to do it but I don’t know how. As is, Liz’s cover is the first page. They use semi-shiny smooth paper and I’ve ordered full color. I really like the way it is done.

    Snickering here!!! I think I’ve found an example of what I can do for the Musher’s Mercantile page!!! Twirling, I’m twirling!

    This is from a FB friend. He put Glad bags over his dog’s paws and used Non-toxic paint!

    The picture is done by his NEWFOUNDLAND!

    Can’t you just see it? Art by River Bear. We could have them toss drool around and then have a 3 D picture! Seriously . . . snicker . . .

    Now I’m going to have to check out OpenOffice.org. I use Word Live Writer for my blog and love it. The page looks like my blog but I can type it as a Word document and then save and print it out from Word. Then I just click “publish” and it automatically opens a new blog page with the new content. Amazing.

    Yesterday a student asked if she could read the course texts on ebook. I asked if that meant she would have her laptop open all the time. (I only let them open laptops when we use them as a class.) She said no that she has an ebook reader. It isn’t a Kindle. I’ll have to have her tell me about it.

    Staff: What is Kindle in the Cloud? (My students may have been talking about that yesterday as well.)

    Rebecca: Your post of 11:19 last night was beautiful. Thank you.

    Wolfie: Please let me know how, when, where and cost for ordering decals. And thank you for your work on that.

    I think the decals wer $3.00 each, Bee. We want to order some too.

    How much are the cookbooks you ordered?

    Congratulations Brewski! We like Bells Oberon and Winter White.

    Yes, Rebecca – thanks for sharing your thoughts last night.

    Waiting for the mail today, for 9-8, and for Art by River Bear.

    Head butts to Everybody today. Keep smiling; it’ll make ’em wonder what you’ve been up to.

    9:51 am on September 1st, 2011

    Barb: That may be the down side: The hardcover full color cookbook from SharedBooks is $48 each. The softcover full color is $38.

    Hi Bee. I’m collecting materials for your classes. Thank dog for used book stores.

    Do your students know their prof was mentioned in a USA Today article?

  18. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    10:20 am on September 1st, 2011

    I have noticed that when I purchase books for my Kindle, they are saved in a amazon cloud. I then have to select the new book and choose the option to have it delivered to my Kindle. Does this happen to anyone else?

  19. B.Stover
    10:38 am on September 1st, 2011

    Bluecat: I didn’t know about the USA Today article until classes were over yesterday. I’m going to try to remember to tell them next week!

    Woflie: When I order books on Amazon I select one of three choices: the book delivered to my home, or to the Kindle or iPad over Whispernet. (Don’t know if this answers your question.)

  20. Mollypop
    10:43 am on September 1st, 2011

    Wolfie – When you buy a book for your Kindle, you can load it on the Kindle or not. Amazon will keep it for you until you actually delete it from Amazon – it can be deleted from the Kindle after you’ve read it.

    Mom has her Kindle, her iPaw, and Sam’s Mom’s Kindle all registered to the same account. Books can go from Amazon to any or all of those three devices.

  21. B.Stover
    10:53 am on September 1st, 2011

    Thanks Mollypop!

    Also regarding Amazon Kindle orders: A friend of mine had Hunger Games on his Kindle and he “loaned” it to my Kindle for two weeks. While it was loaned he couldn’t read it but he had finished it so that didn’t matter. Amazon notified me a few days in advance before the time was up. (Actually, it’s a very smart move because I didn’t have time to finish the book and will be ordering it!)

  22. Melanie
    11:27 am on September 1st, 2011

    Hmmm. We have Amazon deliver through the computer and then USB it to the Kindles. We don’t have a Wi-Fi modem, the Mac is a Wi-Fi generator. But that means it won’t do the whispernet for the Kindles. Though if we download from Amazon and then it goes to Dan’s iPaw, we don’t have to hook up the USB. rolling eyes here.

  23. BARB & MAGGIE
    11:45 am on September 1st, 2011

    Bee, Thanks for the pricing. I think that price might be a little high for the gifts. Think I will try to get the ones for $30.00.

  24. BARB & MAGGIE
    12:07 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Just got an email from a dog person friend that wants to know how to go about ordering the cookbook. Does she do it thru Snowhook?

    Good Day Everyone!

    Super late this morning checking. Lots of things to do before the holiday weekend.

    We heard this great uplifting song as we turned on the computer this morning, but now can’t find it. Seems someone send a link a while back. It would have been perfect for Macy last night. Something about Sweet Little Girl. Anyone remember it?

    Off to do more stuff.

    BStover,
    You have to have google Chrome as (one) of your web browsers. On google Chrome go to amazon.com and click on the Kindle link. The fourth choice down says Kindle Cloud Reader. Click on that and download to your computer. Choose a book. Read.

    It is free so you don’t have to buy an e-book reader. So Cool.
    You do have to buy the books although there are a lot of free and 99 cent ones out there.

    It works nicely.

  33. B.Stover
    2:25 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Thank you Staff. I have never downloaded Chrome but I’ll consider it. I think I prefer reading on the Kindle or iPad rather than the computer. (Because I have to read and do so many other things on the computer, my book reading is usually a break from the computer).

    I didn’t get a surprise in the mail. Weeping…..

  34. Alice M. Johnson
    2:28 pm on September 1st, 2011

    We received a lovely surprise in the mail today. Tupper and Gilly are such nice puppies <3 you

  35. Melanie
    2:39 pm on September 1st, 2011

    So the surprise is slowing making it’s way across the country! Cool.

    Also cool!

    ZOE DOES NOT HAVE THAT TERRIBLE STUFF!
    Of course, she still hurts like mad, BUT she will not go blind.

    Whew . . .

    Unfortunately, this means that Rose is out of a job. I was going to train her to be Zoë’s seeing eye dog. (for some reason Zoe didn’t think much of that idea)

  36. Alice M. Johnson
    2:48 pm on September 1st, 2011

    BSover, Here is a link for the kindle cloud reader. Mr.Staff just sent it to me. It does not say you have to have Chrome on this ad so maybe that is no longer required.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=kcp_pc_mkt_lnd?
    docId=1000426311

    Melanie you are too funny. And we are SOOOO glad that Zoe doesn’t have that stuff. Hope they find out what she does have. Poor Zoe. Best wished for feeling better from us midwest Kats.

    Thank you Spence & Royals’ mum,

    Now prayers for the pain to go away soonest.

  39. B.Stover
    3:39 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Staff: Thank you…and Mr. Staff. The link didn’t work but I went to Amazon and apparently, since I have an account, I already have access to the free online storage. I’ll need to investigate this more. (I have Safari on my iPad. I think it came installed. Anyway, all of my Kindle books are on my iPad.)

    Melanie: Very good news about Zoe! Sigh of relief….

  40. Basil and Sage
    3:42 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Melanie and Zoe. YAHOOOOOO.
    (we refuse to say “thank dog” just on principle, but we are THRILLED to hear that it’s not the really bad stuff.
    Whew!

  41. BearSpiritDog
    3:47 pm on September 1st, 2011

    C.Harris: Read the story of the woman who punched that bear in the snout. She looks so tiny to be doing such a brave thing. But when a loved one is in danger we don’t stop to think of ourselves…we just act.

    Late but sincere congratulations to Brewski the new FOTM and to Millie on Facebook.

    Back to “accomplishing something”…..

    Mr.Staff watches Fast Money on TV.
    He says…”The Fast Money people said that Amazon is coming out with a Kindle duplicate in the next few months. One of them said that Barnes and Noble stock is going up and they have a Nook. Guy – the Italian – said that the other panelist doesn’t really like Barnes and Noble but just likes to say Nook”.

    That’s the book nook financial news for today. (I like to say Nook also)

  43. Barb & Maggie
    4:55 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Thank you for our surprise, T & G, your Mum, and Spence. We will keep it, along with our business cards and other good C & B stuff that we treasure.

    Nook: I took my favorite meanings from different on-line dictionaries.

    Nook: A hidden, remote, obscure or secluded spot. A retreat.

    I think that the Pack has Nooks.
    Ellie’s is a certain blanket on the floor.
    Patsy’s is my bed.
    Mattie’s is underneath the computer desk.
    Mac’s is any doorway you need to go through.
    Roz’s is the furthest sofa in the living room.
    Franklin’s is whenever he shuts his eyes and lowers his head.
    Rose’s is behind the chair next to the computer.
    Katy’s is the kitchen.
    Grace’s is in the coat closet.

    My nook? My reading/dressing room!

    Miz Melanie – I got me a right comfortable nook too – curled up on the front porch under the glider. Its shady with a nice breeze comin off the stream, and the magnolia blossoms perfumin the air.

    T&G -thank you for that nice surprise. I’m honored to be included in the Plunderers. Think I’ll hang it up right there in my comfortable nook.

    5:56 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Speaking of books, I called Wellesly Books and asked for Rebecca to talk about ordering a signed copy. She said to tell the bloggers that we don’t need to ask specifically for her. Anyone can take the info, and PA/SQ will be there on the 14th, so we can order a special message signed copy up till then.

    We also got a complimentary call from Murder By the Book, in Texas I believe, asking if we would like to preorder a copy. He will not be doing a signing there this year.

    I want to have Spence write something about tin futures for Barb, but haven’t come up with anything short but amazingly clever yet. Any thoughts?

  49. B.Stover
    5:57 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Melanie: I like Mac’s nook the best.

  50. Mollypop
    5:59 pm on September 1st, 2011

    The inscription could come from Spence – telling her what a good investment she made.

  51. Redbone Hound
    6:05 pm on September 1st, 2011

    ummmm – MollyPop – do you mean it could come from Bernie?

  52. Snowhook Bella
    6:05 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Mealnie: I’m glad the news was favorable for Zoe. I hope she recovers quickly. We too have several dogs with their own favorite nook—Howard’s current favorite is his cubby in the dog barn AJ built. He likes to poke his head our and howl.

    Rio: Pleas check your SDD. I had a thought about twirling paper during her March vacation.

    Mollypop: I like your idea—its witty and true!

  53. Barb & Maggie
    6:08 pm on September 1st, 2011

    You mean invest in his books, and stay away from tin futures?

    BTW, watched Bloodworth with Kris Kristofferson last night. It was not one we would recommend. Like him and his music, but not the movie. Did you know he was a Rhodes Scholar?.

  54. Mollypop
    6:23 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Brewski! You look like one very cool member of the Nation. We really hope you join us here on the blog. We’d love to hear from you.

    Also, FB Millie! Very brave girl diving into that water!

    So glad to hear the news on Zoe. We are hoping the pain goes away for her very soon.

    Whew! We are so happy that Tupper and Gilly’s great surprise is making it to the rest of you. That was one tough secret to keep here on the farm. Hope Rio gets his today too, or there will be h*ll to pay! Macy, we were sad when we went back and read last night’s posts. We hope you are in better spirits today, but it must be horrible being stuck inside in that terrible heat. We hope things turn around soon. And don’t take the bad stuff Rio says personally. We don’t. We think his gruffness is just on the outside, and that inside he has a heart of gold. If that isn’t true, we will never know. :-)

  57. Buddy and T.C.
    6:40 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Tupper and Gilly: thanks so much for thinking of us too. (and we know our great friends Basil and Sage probably were the ones who thought of us).

    6:52 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Hey, y’all! Mom says she’s feeling pretty good right about now. If she were taking a sneak peek at TDWKTM — which she most certainly is not! — she’d be up to page 58 by now. I think that’s more than 2. But she has to remember that number for two whole days because she has tomorrow off. She’s working on Saturday, so she can avoid peeking at the book again then!

  59. Macy the Min-Pin
    6:53 pm on September 1st, 2011

    When mom was at the office supply cathedral, she saw a binding system for about $12,but you still have to get the pages printed out. They are also having a printing sale but she didn’t pay attention to it because of too many Shiny Things.
    How can a person go into a store to get 2 things, get neither one and still spend $15? Focus woman,focus!

    And I am hanging my head in shame for not thanking Amalia for the treat. TYVVVM!!!

    7:04 pm on September 1st, 2011

    We just went back to the late night posts from yesterday. Mr. Redbone, how you do go on! It is hotter than a ‘coon with it’s tail afire, and all that fancy prose is making me ” glow” even more! ;D

    I’ll have to get a picture tomorrow or the next day of the river over by our neighbors house. Or should I say “non river”.

    The river takes a right turn up river about 1/2 mile. Then it came straight down and did a 90 degree left turn. Come down about 75 yards or so and then take another 90 degree right hand turn. Our house is on that last turn. The beavers took a small stream that cut through that triangle (making an island) behind the house, and kept widening it.

    Irene has completely shifted the main river to travel down the beaver stream. That is now the river and our two neighbors no longer have a river at all!

    Weird. There’s a lot of power in water!

    Hi gang-
    Glad to hear that the post office is still delivering mail in some parts of the country – wish they would make it to New York state and Colorado and a few other places.
    WooHoo – Mama is home, home, home for the long weekend. No more Crazy Lady til Tuesday. That gives her 4 whole days to get that winning lottery ticket so she doesn’t have to go back.
    Kirby and Macy – out here we have a cool office supply place that has close outs and clearance and discontinued. Its called the Final Markdown and we love to go there and see what they have THIS week…one never knows.
    As for shopping and not being able to resist shiny things – let us tell you about our Dad when he gets to the store that sells stones and silver and jewelry making tools – its best to just stand back and let him go. Picture a ferret let loose in Tiffany’s.

  69. B.Stover
    8:25 pm on September 1st, 2011

    According to Amazon my copy of Dog Who is arriving Sept. 6 via UPS. I preordered the Robbie book also.

  70. OleyHowlers
    8:27 pm on September 1st, 2011

    So funny. Our mom does not like shopping, especially those office supply places (it takes her forever to find what she is looking for so she can get out), and she isn’t in to jewelry as she always breaks or loses that type of thing. But take her to a tack shop, and you can kiss the day and a lot of money goodbye!

    Oley Howlers: I have long suspected that below Rio’s crew cut, curly tail surface is a heart of gold—in fact, if I had the money (Belle Starr has yet to pay me back for the pink hockey tape she gave AJ for Christmas) I’d lay a bet on it. I’d say the same of any Plunderer.

    Hi Howlers! Yes, I’ve been wondering the same thing – where is Rio
    Maybe packing for his upcoming trip?

    Rio! Check in again. You know how we worry.

    Happy Birthday, Dawson!!!

    Mom got our surprise today, too. Thank you T&G, Royal’s Mum and Spence for taking the time to do that for us.

    Getting very excited about the new book! Kindle first and then pawtographed hardback copy.

    Good news for Zoe!! Melanie, when do you, Zoe and Dan the Man get to meet SQ? Take awesome pictures, okay?

    We were supposed to get 4 days of rainy weather, but now it’s heading east of here. We may get some rain Sunday and Monday. We’re betting not. Rats!!

    Happy Anniversary of your birth, Dawson.

    In case you missed it last night, I want to reiterate, Belle-the-bipolar BIT mom yesterday. Bad dog, Belle, bad, bad dog. Don’t give me that shamed face. You can’t unbite someone. And on mom’s bad finger too. Bad dog. Face the wall. At least no stitches were involved. This time. Strange how dog teeth can bruise a finger. It is all purple.

    I have to go now cause the computer
    is shutting down for the day. Hey,
    Rio, I hope you show up tonite so I
    can read of your adventures at light.

    Happy Birthday, Dawson! Perhaps a sestina is in order? Nah. Sorry, I’m in the middle of writing another sestina right now. Pretty sure I can’t handle two at once! So how’s this?

    There once was a Plunderer named Dawson,
    At the auction she wouldn’t play possum.
    Her birthday we toast
    From border to coast
    We all say she’s double-y awesome!

    Kirby – LOL!

    Good job!

  87. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:08 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Thanks T&G! Oh, and thanks also for our mail — it came today! The time after the mailman came was agony — like I said, I can’t reach the mailbox! — so I had to wait until Mom came home to see if there was anything addressed to me. And there was!

  88. Snowhook Bella

    Kirby T: Your birthday wish to Dawson was excellent!

    Dogumentary update: We recieved an email today that the casting director. She said the additional footage was exactly what they needed. Our friend and self-proclaimed photographer of the kennel (Rio—you’ll meet him, and no, he isn’t a giant) came out to the kennel with his fancy camera to help with filming. I did mention the Plunderers twice in the footage.

  89. Gus & BooBear
    10:28 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Rebecca, when can we see the additional footage? Is it posted on Snowhooks website?

    Macy, one of Mom’s cats bit her in the knuckle of her pinky finger once…all the way into the joint. They were moving and Pookie was very scared so Mom knew she didn’t mean it. But by the evening, she felt bad enough to go to minor emergency clinic. They treated her with super, duper antibiotics and referred her to a orthopedic surgeon. By Friday, she was having emergency surgery and the people vet told her that he THOUGHT he could save the finger. He did save the finger, but that first joint is frozen solid. It will not bend AT ALL. Luckily, the middle joint still works (sort of) so she does not look all snobby with her pinky sticking up!

    G&BB: Ouch!

    Macy: I hope your mom’s finger heals nicely!!!

  91. Snowhook Bella
    10:34 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Gus and BooBear: The footage is too large to email or post. Our friend smooshed—I believe the is the technical term—all of our takes (two) together. I became flusters and quite possible over-emoted about the Plunderers. :)

  92. Tupper and Gilly
    10:34 pm on September 1st, 2011

    See – just what we always thought – Kats have cooties!

  93. Basil and Sage
    10:36 pm on September 1st, 2011

    We DO NOT have cooties.
    But we do have a box, packing tape, string and a label addressed to Alaska….
    here doggie doggies…come see what we have in this nice big box for you….

  94. Kirby T. Penworthy
    10:37 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Too true, T&G! When Mom and Dad lived at Fort Drum in New York, they had a neighbor who had Cat Scratch Fever, just like the song! She got real sick and had to go to the doctor!!!

  95. Gus & BooBear
    10:42 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Rebecca, it is not possible to OVER-emote about the Plunderers!! We’re sure that will be the winning edge you need to get the dogumentary. Hey, maybe Rio and Friend will be up there when the filming in going on and Rio will make it in the movies!! That might upset Sam.

  96. Barb & Maggie
    10:59 pm on September 1st, 2011

    You guys are keeping us very entertained tonight. Although Personally I don’t think you shoule be bitting the hand that…..well you know how the line goes.

    Funny story about Kelly’s FIL who is in the nursing home from drinking – he said this is the second resort he has been in this week where they didn’t have locks on the doors (first being the hospital).
    He also called Room Srervice (front desk/nurses station) last night and asked them to send a bottle of vodka and a bucket of ice to his room! Pretty sure he didn’t get it!

  97. Tupper and Gilly
    11:04 pm on September 1st, 2011

    Rebecca – one step closer to Snowhook Stardom! Wait til Siber gets home and reads all this.
    WHEN you get selected, and if they do film during the start of the race, we bet Sam will find a way to stoweaway in some kind of vehicle to get to Alaska. But she will be ok – she will have her own chapstick.
    tee hee

  98. Snowhook Bella
    11:07 pm on September 1st, 2011

    GandBB: I believe the Royal’s mum told us to: emote, emote, emote! I think I added one too the mix and it resulted in me being tongue tied. I think I forgot to mention something about award winning, best selling. I couldn’t get it right…

    I bet Rio will remember all the right details in his acceptance speech following his big film debut.

    Barb and Maggie: I have to borrow a ‘snort’ from Rio at your theory on biting the hand that…

  99. Snowhook Bella
    11:12 pm on September 1st, 2011

    (Whispering) I sent in some extra footage that AJ doesn’t know about. I filmed it in my office so AJ wouldn’t know, but I told the camera how amazing AJ is and that they should know how proud I am of him.

    If Sam does stowaway to Iditarod, we need to make sure she is in a bright colored dog jacket otherwise we won’t see her against the snow.

    Macy please keep an eye on that bite. Mr.Staff had the same problem with our kat Alton one time. He kept saying it was OK and it was fine and it kept swelling up. He finally agreed to go to the emergency room and got antibiotics. Sheesh. It would have been way cheaper to go sooner.

    So be careful dear.

    And where is Rio? Who has his friends emergency number? Was he going this weekend? Gah! I am getting worried. You would think he would have said see ya later or something.

    Maybe one of the racers could wear a saddle and Sammy could…roflmto just imagining it. She would need her snuggie for sure.

    Did we tell you how terribly impressed we were with the cookbook? Such a wonderful job!

    And how is your little Cricket on the Hearth?

    Thanks for all the birthday greetings today. I was working a long shift so I’m exhausted. It’s crazy busy at the hospital lately but my group got away from the chaos by going out back to the firepit and cooking T-bone steaks, corn on the cob, onions and mushrooms. Also had banana bread and delicious cherries. I didn’t want to go back in but eventually we all had to pee so…
    I’m fading fast and have to work another long shift tomorrow.
    Hey thanks Kirby, for the poem. You are quite talented that way.
    Goodnight all and G’day to LizF.

    Long!…Days journey into night….snort! … My friend has been very upset today so she took it out on me…sniff!… I was not allowed near the computer except for that “Humbug” I snuck in early this morning…heh!… She says she learned something important today and shared it with me so that I can know something important without going through all the pain and agony of actually learning it …snorkel! …What she shared with me is simple. Don’t fret about meaningless nasty beings that exist only to erode our confidence, happiness and wellbeing. Instead, dwell only on the beings that bring joy and laughter into our lives. Those by the nature of their friendship bring meaning to our lives.

    Meaning!… That’s what she learned today and has passed onto me…wheeze!…This is how I interpret those words of wisdom; if I ignore you that means you are on my shit-list…heh!heh!…Goodnight.

    Dawson: I’m sorry you had to work so long on your birthday. I thought maybe you weren’t on the blog because you were at some fancy restaurant celebrating your birthday with a nice, yummy steak. (And then you would come home, slip the bone into an envelope and mail it to me!) Get a good night’s sleep, and dream about tummies and ear rubs and .. oh, wait, that’s my perfect dream! Well, I wish you dreams about the two-legged version!!!

    Factoring in the longevity of Snoop’s career dating back to 90’s,this former album dogumentary deserves a solid 4.After 20 years and there’s still something on the album for everybody to bang and the songs are from each one distinguishable from apiece other..but these days people would rather praise the majority of the bullshit..if you were even born after Snoop’s first album came out don’t even comment.
