    Awwww…How Cute is That?..Not silly at all…she’s Acting Exactly Like a Member of the Nation Within!

    Good morning, BSD and everyone! We were watching that silly lamb so you beat us to the blog :) We agree with the O’H that you ARE up early. Those borders obviously know how to herd. Now we wonder who is more confused, a lamb that thinks it a dog or herders who think 4 to 1 is a good herding ratio!
    Mom still feels like it is a weekend day, sheesh!
    Think we will have a fragmentary Friday so we don’t confuse any more days.

    Very cute indeed. Pet looks like she might be a Shetland breed, that is what we had in the country before we had the goats. They come in all colors and are a fleece sheep rather than a meat breed. All dumb however.

    And why does everyone have a BC named Fly?

    Good morning all. Getting packed up to leave for work and then hanging out with the Grands. Everyone seems healthy at the moment, so hope their are no lingering germs. I will be taking Airborne and Vitamin C.

    Rio, I think I can tell you where I am in the book, without a spoiler. She is being called Lydia by someone.

    BML: Paws crossed for you at the Grands. We suppose if you wore a mask it would freak everyone out? Such extreme measures are probably not necessary, seeing that Lily is back in school.

    Is the lamb herding the dogs? I haven’t read Songs of Innocence (William Blake) in a long time.

    Good morning all.

    Ah! “Little lamb, who made thee?”

  12. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    9:21 am on February 6th, 2015

    It did look more like the sheep was doing the herding. The dogs didn’t seem to have too much interest in her.

    Off to start my busy weekend. Have a good day, everyone.

  13. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom

    I will continue my walk down memory lane tonight.

    Morning all. Off to do another day of errands. We have a new snowstorm threat for Sunday into Monday. Each day, the weather people add another prospective inch or two.
    Have we ever mentioned that we really are NOT fans of snow.

    sigh.

    For those interested (and in case you didn’t already know), a Breaking Bad spin off titled “Better Call Saul” starring Bob Odenkirk, begins Sunday on AMC. (There’s a review in today’s NYTimes.)

    9:55 am on February 6th, 2015

    Royal Mum, as a skier, I loved the snow! Bring it on! Now I’m a non-skier and this is the second winter of my discontent.

    We here love snow. Love it.
    We even love the -3 temperatures we had this morning.
    Mom used to love snow right along with her huskies, until she moved to this here farm and had to take care of horses in the freezing cold and snow. That added a whole new dimension to winter.

    Hello All and a Gracious Good Morning.
    Staff–Bang the Drum Slowly is an excellent choice, and the last line is truly moving.
    ALR–I understand the difficulty (and I have several–the Wodehouse one had just been on my mind. Another all-time favorite: “[He] felt and overwhelming desire to do something, but the feeling passed” (this is pretty much a description of my life).
    T and G’s Mama–I had forgotten about that one, but you’re right–quite illustrative.
    HOH–I don’t know why that wouldn’t count (and have you seen the one for felines–Human is saying something along the lines of “Who’s a beautiful girl?” and you see a completely empty thought balloon over the animal’s head…
    Those of you with impending snow and storm warnings, be safe, everyone have a happy day.

  26. BearSpiritDog

    Tupper’s Mama: I don’t see it. Unless you mean a Missing Comma.

  27. Diane C.
    10:42 am on February 6th, 2015

    Aww–I just checked out the video (I’m no expert, but isn’t that kind of a mature lamb)?
    Zeus–Maybe you can share with Belle Starr…

  28. BARB, MAGGIE AND LUCY
    10:47 am on February 6th, 2015

    Is that it? A missing comma in the post about Tyger?

  29. Zeus
    10:52 am on February 6th, 2015

    Not a missing comma. A missing apostrophe.
    HA!

  30. BARB, MAGGIE AND LUCY
    11:01 am on February 6th, 2015

    You are right and on the ball Zeus! We missed it.

    I am glad we are not held to such high standards. Such pressure!

  32. Zeus
    11:04 am on February 6th, 2015

    Maggie, I am held to very high standards here. Remember whose boots I have to (try to) fill? It is extreme pressure.

  34. BearSpiritDog

    Of Course! An Apostrophe! We missed it too. It must have been that Rascally Otter-Cork.

    Rio, you will get a year of monitoring. I’ve had it twice already, but not from a security breach as serious as the Anthem one. The last one I got is protectmyid.com. When the year expires, you can just pay to renew it, or look elsewhere, of course. Lifelock is supposed to be good.

  37. BearSpiritDog
    11:17 am on February 6th, 2015

    Actually, it was Tupper’s Mama who pointed it out in the first place.

  40. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    11:19 am on February 6th, 2015

    I was getting the duplicate comment message so I made a small change.

  41. B.Stover
    11:22 am on February 6th, 2015

    Which reminds me: When I was still teaching, a colleague and I team taught a class that was putting together a manual for a new computer system that was being installed. (She was in the computer science department.) As I was proofreading, I told her that, “if there’s a banned error in this, my life is over.”

  42. B.Stover
    11:28 am on February 6th, 2015

    There is another error in that same comment. (I used past tense when referring to the poem. The “rule” is that one should always refer to literature in the present tense since it “is” in the present even if the author isn’t.)

    And way to go Zeus…and Tupper’s Mama.

  43. Masquers
    11:37 am on February 6th, 2015

    They are saying the data was not encrypted. Isn’t this unusual for such a large scale operation.

  44. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:41 am on February 6th, 2015

    Lifelock!….Thanks MollysMaw. I was trying to remember the name of that one…snort!…Someone is feeling better today – not so panicky and sick to her stomach…gah!

    Barb!…I had a feeling you were right around that Lydia spot…chuffle!…We will sadly be finishing the book this weekend…sob!…Pay attention to Lydia’s dress.

  45. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    11:58 am on February 6th, 2015

    Masquers, the Anthem data is all someone needs to steal an identity – SSN, date of birth, and health info.

  46. O'Howlers
    12:00 pm on February 6th, 2015

    Large amounts of data are not normally encrypted. Security, in the form of good firewalls and locked-down servers, are what is used to protect data. We didn’t read how the Anthem breach occurred.

  47. Mpop's and Loulou's Mom
    12:02 pm on February 6th, 2015

    Masquers, I don’t think that data gets encrypted. Dealing with unencrypting and then encrypting it again slows down the computer system.

    O’Howlers Mom can address that better.

  48. Riö - The Evil Pug

  51. B.Stover
    12:39 pm on February 6th, 2015

    HOH: I earned my living finding those errors, in part. I preferred the teaching/discussion of literature to teaching writing and grammar. I always told my students that proofreading one’s own writing is the hardest because the writer knows what is meant.

    There is an article in today’s NYTimes about the Anthem breach.

    The video won’t play for me. The sound is there but no picture…GAH I wanted to see the Border Collies. I will go to youtube later and look for it.

    We are going to watch Better Call Saul. The local media is giving it tons of coverage…made the front page this morning.

    Round one of Chili Pepper errands done. Later, we are Gramp’s chauffer – this could be a loooong afternoon.

    Rio – on our news last night, the financial reported said that the best way to protect yourself was to go to the big 3 credit reporting agencies and put a freeze on any new credit lines. If you need to take a loan or a credit card out in the future, you just have to “un-freeze” your credit line, and after the transaction, put a freeze back on it. The reported said it is actually a good idea for everyone to put a freeze on their credit lines if they don’t have any plans to do a credit app any time in the near future.

    Snow! Looks like 6 inches or more of new snow overnight and still coming down steadily. I hope the Iditarod Trail is getting some of this. I don’t want to hog it all.

    By the time I arrived on Wednesday at Friend’s busy place to have a huffle and gruffle and a pep talk with the Hotshot followed by a piece of hard candy—firm and loving is my way—Rio’s Friend had already done it all less the hard candy. I decided to stay anyway. Friend’s coworkers seemed to be bothered that none of the envelopes I licked had anything in them. It didn’t bother me. I’m staying at the busy place through the end of the day. I found another large box of envelopes that need licking. I may be a visitor at the busy place, but I like to pull my weight.

    Mom hid the ipaw while she took the DDD, boarder in the basement, his new lady friend and her (LF’s) daughter out for ice cream after a school dance. Shakes, cones and a sundae had by the group. And us? All we got was a big cookie (each).
    The trip back in time on the blog has been wonderful. More, if you can, please. We love our blog family and find the evolution fascinating.

    MPoP’s and LouLou’s Mom. In going down memory lane, have you come across any of Rio’s missions. I have always wanted to track those down, but have never had a chance. Also, I think it was circa July 1, 2010, when Wookie won the advanced reader’s copy of TFAT by his reference to Niagara Falls.

    I got my training schedule for next week, went out and bought my stylin’ black pants and white shirt, so I am ready to join the workforce (sort of) It has been YEARS since I worked an 8 hour day and I was uh less mature then, and it wasn’t standing on my feet.

    Wookie’s and Teddy’s Dad, I have passed the parts where Wookie hung by his tail, but I’m waiting to come to our first real mission. I will put that up for sure. I may have the missions saved elsewhere. They are great writing. Rio’s made this blog. I knew it before, but now seeing it again it’s so evident!

    Rio: I will help where I can at the busy place. I like that place. Free kawfee, a watercooler worth tipping over, chairs on wheels that corner like they’re on rails, and entire room of office supplies with envelopes waiting to be licked. Plus Friend is there. What could be better, I ask youse?

    Busy-Place!…Luna, you speak of a place I have never been and am not allowed to go to…sniff!…It sounds like a wonderful, magical place….wheeze!… Did you see the lunchroom? Was there free food and flowing beer? Were there nice little beds to rest upon in the breakroom? Was there big-screen TV’s for entertainment and bowls of pop-corn everywhere?…chuffle!…I can imagine it all, oh yes I can…((sigh!))

    Rio: That must have been what was behind that door that had a sign on it that said conference room. I will investigate next week.

    MTMP: Tell ML to make sure she has comfortable shoes for that 8 hour (gasp!) shift. And try to put your feet up on breaks.

    I’m off to read Miss Julia.

    Rio: I think you are dreaming!
