    But are starches really good for anyone?

    Good morning all.

  2. OleyHowlers
    8:32 am on January 24th, 2013

    Good morning, Bee and all.
    Does this mean we can eat speghetti with the rents?

  3. Tupper and Gilly

    We have NO desire to eat like a wolf. Fuzz butts, grass, mice, “nature’s leftovers”, etc. we will stick to our nice warm, water-soaked kibble, with the occasional pizza crust thrown in.

    Oh – and Good Morning everyone

    Here’s a real question: When you look at the “nevermore/raven” in the Facebook box on the right, which do you see first–the word or the bird? I’m just curious. (I saw the word first.)

  5. OleyHowlers
    9:34 am on January 24th, 2013

    We see the bird. But then, we are Sibes after all

  6. B. Stover
    9:39 am on January 24th, 2013

    The Howlers are making me laugh.

  7. Barb & Maggie
    11:02 am on January 24th, 2013

    We saw the bird first, but only slightly so.

    Barb just got a great sounding dog food mix if anyone is interested. It is raw and then frozen into individual servings. Could be fed as a total food for dogs that are sick or need to gain weight, or as a kibble topping.

  8. Alice M. Johnson
    11:07 am on January 24th, 2013

    We saw the bird first also. Staff says her degree is in fine arts so therefor…

    Greetings!

    Not feeling tip-top today so I am home from the busy place. It is another $#%@!!! cold day here in New York, but the Prof and I have been styling and profiling our new Alaska gear, and we stay toasty warm in it! Today I am just in my flannel Snoopy bottoms and a t-shirt.

    Dawson! I won? Really?

    B, funny but I see both at once….I am both near and far-sighted.

    Loving the new FOCs.

    Rebecca, an SDD waits for you upon your return. Be safe! Feel better!

  10. Rose
    11:08 am on January 24th, 2013

    Hey, Buddy, I hope you are feeling better!

  11. Mollypop's Mom
    11:13 am on January 24th, 2013

    B. – Like Wose, I saw the bird and the words at the same time. Also, I feel much better since I went Paleo and gave up the starches, mostly. They’re not in my everyday diet – just as a treat occasionally.

  12. Alice M. Johnson
    12:04 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Dawson, Please check your SDD.

  13. Siber-H
    12:17 pm on January 24th, 2013

    That is an interesting article.
    I knew us Sibers were an OLD breed, but the beginning was 33,000 years ago?
    I saw the bird first. Any self-respecting Siber would see the bird first.

    Wose, I hope you feel bettr soon. It is good you are staying home today.

  14. dawson
    12:24 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Interesting article. I wonder if the coydog also would be missing that starch digesting gene.
    Rose: Yes, you won! Is your address in dishlickers?
    Terry: How is Haley settling in?
    Hooray! No new snow and the sun is shining. A perfect day for mushing dogs.
    SiberH: I just finished Yukon Alone by John Balzar about the 1998 Yukon Quest. A Siberian Husky team came in second place!

  15. OleyHowlers
    12:42 pm on January 24th, 2013

    We did not know that, Dawson. Which team was it?

  16. Siber-H
    12:43 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Dawson, Yukon Alone is one of my favorite books about long distance sled dog racing.

  17. dawson
    12:56 pm on January 24th, 2013

    He is a Canadian from Quebec, Andre Nadeau.

    1:05 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Race!…I found this helpful photo on the Northern Lights 300 webpage…snort!…I wonder which position Junior will be running in…sniff!

  19. B. Stover
    1:12 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Although I saw the word first (I thought the swirling pattern was interesting), after someone pointed out the raven I can now see both at the same time. I wonder what Spence is doing with that.

    I just posted a sketch/story on my blog.

  20. Tupper and Gilly
    1:21 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Bee – we saw the word first. When we read Melanie’s post, we had no idea what she was referring to, but looked over at Facebook and immediately saw Nevermore. Only after we saw that did the bird silhouette pop out at us. Hmmmm…what is your diagnosis of that, Professor?

    WOSE! Congratulations on your win. See, its jut the start of all the wonderful things coming your way soon.

    Rio – we love that poster. Thanks for putting it up. We aren’t sure where Junior will be, but if we were along, we would be sitting in the blue box category.

  21. Alice M. Johnson
    1:23 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Yesterday someone was asking about the ice luminaries. Here is a link to the company/woman who gave us our tutorial on luminaries frozen in a balloon. They work great and you don’t have to worry about the form breaking because you WILL break the balloon to free the luminary.

    It has a link to find local stores and an online order form also.

    I will get you a link for the tower ones in just a minute…

    1:28 pm on January 24th, 2013

    SiberH: I couldn’t find your mailing address on Dishlickers to mail the card/picture to you. I’m going to send you an email to get it.

  25. Siber-H
    1:31 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Rio, That is a very useful photo. I think Junior has been run as a team dog, but I could be wrong.

    Stover, I read the sketch/story…very intresting and sad. If she had lived in our time period instead of when she did, her illness could have been treated.

  26. Siber-H
    1:35 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Stover, Check your SDD please.

  27. OleyHowlers
    1:39 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Do any of youse know what time “our” race starts tomorrow? We are so excited!

  28. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:41 pm on January 24th, 2013

    SiberH!…You can come pick up your prize anytime you want…sniff!…Just don’t ring the doorbell. That sends Beau into a pug-yeeeeping frenzy…wheeze!

  29. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:42 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Race!…Will we only be able to follow by watching the standings that will be posted?…grunt!

  30. Siber-H
    1:49 pm on January 24th, 2013

    I imagine the race standings, which we all know can be slow to be posted, will be our only way of knowing what is going on.
    Rebecca is our best and quickest source of information….bless her. I hope she is feeling better.

    Rio, Mom won’t let me have the truck to come pick up my prize and she won’t buy me a Porsche 911.

  31. Siber-H
    2:00 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Fellow Sibers, The race starts at 10am Alaska time.
    Me too, I am excited!

  32. B. Stover
    2:04 pm on January 24th, 2013

    SiberH: During Woolf’s life she had problems in moments of crisis. (When her mother died, when her older brother died.) The particular crisis at that time was World War II. They had been bombed out of their London home and were living at their country home, Monk’s House in Rodmell. I mailed the card.

    T&G: I don’t have one but a diagnosis would be fascinating. What do you think it means?

  33. Macy the min-pin
    2:09 pm on January 24th, 2013
  34. OleyHowlers
    2:13 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Thanks Siber. That will be 2:00 pm eastern time. Woooo!!!!!! We wish we could track, but we will be checking on those standings often.

  35. Siber-H
    2:14 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Stover, Thank You….I’ll let you know when I receive the card.

  36. Wookie's Dad
    2:30 pm on January 24th, 2013

    I definitely saw the word first. Just the curse of being a lawyer.

  37. B. Stover
    2:54 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Wookie’s Dad: Then mine is the curse of being an English professor.

  38. Rose
    3:01 pm on January 24th, 2013

    I just woke up from a nap.
    Thanks, Siber-H. Staying home was the right thing to do.

    Awesome: If i am not mistaken, my address is on Dishlickers. If not just SDD me.

    Rio! I can take you to Alaska if you want. Send me your best picture, and I will take it along with me. I will even film me introducing you to Junior.

  39. Rose
    3:04 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Rio! Thanks for putting up that picture!

  40. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:16 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Rose!…I will send you a photo of Me!Me!Me!…snort!…Just don’t know when. Someone here does not like going to the post office very much…sniff!

  41. OleyHowlers
    3:20 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Macy, we want that grogg!

  42. Masquers
    3:42 pm on January 24th, 2013

    I saw the Raven first then, when B mentioned it, the word.
    An analysis of the 3 different views would be fun.

    Rose: 36 days and counting!

  43. BearSpiritDog
    3:50 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Wow! 33,000 Years. Siber-H, You are an Old Soul.

    Dawg Grog…what a Great Idea. Sign me up for a taste of the brew.

    Tupper&Gilly: Let us know the results from the doc visit as soon as you can.

    B: Going now to read your blog story.

  44. Melanie
    4:02 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Good Morning! I just turned the computer on a few minutes ago. Been very busy. Have many things to figure out from the blog’s comments. B.Stover, did you put another sketch/essay up? It took them how long to figure out that dogs were domesticated by the use of food? (I’ll have to read that article)
    And other delightful things.

    Fed the Pack except for the two young ladies that I next took to the vet for a reduction in hormones. snicker. Went to the store to get cheap blankets, went to the grocery store, went and got Jesse. Did the Pack’s pills, cleaned the kitchen, ate some lunch, started dog proofing the West Wing. Lots of work. The two blankets now stop the heat from going up the staircase. Rested 15 minutes. Took Jesse home. Fed the dogs. Called the vet. I’m leaving in 14 minutes to pick up the two ladies at 5. Both should be able to walk around. Come home. Feed them.

    Sleep downstairs on recliner. Hmmm. I’m not doing NOTHING for ANYTHING tomorrow!

  45. Melanie
    4:04 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Oh, I saw the Raven and the words at the same time.

    They said it was going to warm up here. I don’t see that.

  46. Rose
    4:19 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Masquers, the Prof and I are sooooo excited!

  47. dawson
    4:24 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Rose: What good things did you and the Prof purchase for your dream Iditarod trip?

  48. BearSpiritDog
    4:33 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Melanie: Brisk and Bitterly Cold. Woof! Doesn’t sound like it’s warming up to me. That 200 yr. old house must be a “bear” to keep warm.
    WeatherKat says something called the Alberta Clipper(?) is coming south on Friday.
    Dawson: Do you have anything to do with this?

    Rio: That’s a great poster of the Northern Lights 300. Now if only we could track it.

    Siber-H: Speaking of tracking…do you have your Iditarod Tracking Device ordered?

  49. Siber-H
    4:38 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Bear? What is an Iditarod Tracking Device? Yark!

  50. Masquers
    4:41 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Buddy: Thinking of you and wondering how you are doing today.
    Also waiting to hear from the Herbs about their dad.
    Rose: A magic formula passed down from our Gram: (Caution! Not for Kats)
    Hot water, the juice of one lemon, a splash (or more) of cognac.
    Followed by a long nap.

  51. BearSpiritDog
    4:48 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Siber-H: Otherwise known as the GPS tracker. A Must so we can follow our favorite team’s little flag across the tundra come Race time.
    Wooo! An Iditarod Insider is the thing to be.

  52. Wose
    4:48 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Masquers, your gram’s remedy sounds like it will do the trick!

  53. Wose
    4:56 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Dawson: So, the Prof and I both purchased some light weight coats, that have some shiny foil stuff in them that keeps each of us really, really warm. We both have tech touch gloves, useful for taking pictures, or I-Padding, or cell phoning, plus keeping our hands toasty warm. We both have our thermal underwear, and cool thermal socks. Prof got a really nice pair of thermal, waterproof New Balance hiking boots that match quite nicely with his jacket. All this can be worn (and has been this week) here in New York.

  54. Siber-H
    5:05 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Bear, I haven’t signed up yet for the Insider this year. Glad you reminded me. We would all be so lost without that Tracker.

    Wose, You need to stay home again tomorrow so you will have time to get better.

    Melanie, You need to do NOTHING tomorrow.

  55. Tupper and Gilly
    5:36 pm on January 24th, 2013

    We may just try Grams remedy for the heck of it- even if we don’t have a cold

  56. OleyHowlers
    5:40 pm on January 24th, 2013

    What news of T&G’s dad did we miss?

    Wose, we didn’t know there was such a thing as tech touch gloves. What a fantastic idea!

    Buddy says to tell youse he is all better. So much so that he has decided to stop taking the medicine. That Budster…always the joker. heh heh

  57. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:55 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Remedy!…When my friend made Gram’s remedy she added honey to the hot water, lemon and brandy…sniff!…But ever since she found Airborn she has not needed to concoct that old recipe…heh!

  58. Wose
    5:59 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Oleys, those tech touch gloves are great. All our purchases were made at Dick’s Sporting Goods.

  59. Masquers
    6:14 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Riö: Yes! Thank you. Honey…the essential missing ingredient…can’t leave that one out of the magic potion.

  60. Alice M. Johnson
    6:24 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Hey Mr.Husky….Heh. Staff renewed her Insider status last week. You are a slacker!

    Packages have been mailed off to Wose, Linda the Lurker, Bear Spirit and Gus&BooBear. Hope those were the correct ones.

    I have to go back to the post office tomorrow. That Post Office is always packed and I learned that 3 of the 4 people who have worked there forever are retiring at the end of this month. No replacements have been hired. OMD! Don’t expect any mailing from this address after January.

  61. Masquers
    6:25 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Riö: Airborne seems to work best when taken as soon as you notice the symptoms, whereas the old-fashioned remedy works to relieve your suffering during. In any event it will certainly make you forget that you have it. Heh.
    Rose: You and the Prof are some savy high tech buys of arctic wear.

  62. BearSpiritDog
    6:28 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Alice: Can’t wait for my package to arrive!
    P.S. The postal rates are going up on the 27th. We’re doomed.

  63. Wose
    7:11 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Masquers, the Prof and I had no idea of what we were doing when we went to Dick’s. A very nice young lady helped us with our purchases. The Prof wanted to tip her for the time she dedicated to helping us, but store rules do not allow her to do that.

  64. Wose
    7:14 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Bear, everything seems to be going up in price. Fortunately, I have a bunch of Forever stamps, and because of your heads up I will go to the PO and get some more.

  65. Melanie
    7:38 pm on January 24th, 2013

    WEll, that was interesting. Gracie is doing fine. On the other paw . . Katie is now coming out of the morphine. Didn’t want to get up . . didn’t want to walk. Fred had to carry her (110 pounds) to the car. Luckily, one of my nephews was near by and carried her into the house.

    She has moved all of three feet, but she has moved.

    Negative 24 degrees wind chill factor right now. Going to get worse.

    Rose, I wish you could send up some of that high tech gear!

  66. BearSpiritDog
    7:43 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Wose: That is if there is a Post Office to go to. Heh.
    It will no doubt be okay where you are, but in some rural areas the future is gloomy. As Alice said…3 out of 4 employees will soon be leaving with no plans to rehire. What’s up with that?
    Memo to Congress: This 200 year old American institution needs some assistance, and fast. Right…and good luck with that.

  67. BearSpiritDog
    7:46 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Melanie: Thank Dog you have those two guys available for the heavy lifting.
    Stay warm!

  68. OleyHowlers
    7:53 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Wose, Mom has those techie gloves on her wish list. They sound super cool.
    Melanie: Brrrrr
    We need to re-up our Insider, and soon,
    The post office is the best bargain imaginable, but seems to be going the way of the steam engine. Sniff.

  69. Melanie
    8:04 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Just talk to the Royals’ Mum. She is going toned and says goodnight. I also am sayingTa Ta For Now.

    Postal!…It’s very depressing thinking about the fate of the post offices….wheeze!…What fun it is to receive packages through the mail. Especially if they are from anonymous admireres…snorkel!heh!

    Justified!…It’s time to watch the 2nd episode of Justified…snort!…I wonder who the Marshall will shoot tonight…heh!heh!…He is always Justified.

  71. Terry Ballard
    8:09 pm on January 24th, 2013

    We’ve done our best as parents, but we just can’t teach Yuji to read. Took this the other day when we were out seeing how our favorite beach made out after Sandy.

  72. BearSpiritDog
    8:29 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Riö: Finished the 3rd episode of Justified on Tuesday. No On Demand here so were forced to stay awake until 11 pm. Yeep! Very late for yours truly.

    Yuji: Although…Ignorantia juris non excusat…we’re not sure that this legal principle applies to the nation within. Anyway, it’s a Stupid Law in our opinion.

  73. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:30 pm on January 24th, 2013

  75. dawson
    8:43 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Yugi: Question Authority!

    Melanie: Did you mean that she was going to bed? I hope Katie feels better soon.
    Buddy: Take your medicine.

    Rose: Sounds like a very successful shopping trip.

    Barb & Maggie…are busy or they would’ve commented on those pretty Friends of Chet up top. I like it when Spence puts the FOC front and center.

    B.Stover: Brandy is up top!

    None of which was what I came to post and I can’t remember what I was going to say. I will say that it was warmer up here than it is down there. Oh yeah. My submit comment button is not working so I am borrowing a computer. That’s what it was.

  76. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:45 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Dawson!…Riveting post…heh!grunt!

  77. Terry Ballard

    Yuji asks me “What’s this about Haley sniffing around here?”

  78. dawson

    Rio: Back at ya!

  79. Panch & Lefty
    9:04 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Terry: We bet Yuji can read, he just doesn’t agree. We call it selective literacy.

    I am on the second and last leg of my flight home. Wheeze! I woke up this morning sick! The woman I stay with gathered and steamed spruce needles for me to enhance before sending me off to work.

  80. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:07 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Rebecca!…Oh no! Not you too (again!)….grunt!

  81. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:08 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Rebecca!…Are you coming home tonight? Or tomorrow morning?…whiffle!

  82. SnowBella
    9:10 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Rio: I was hoping my cold would hold off until Friday night. I would have time to deal with it starting Friday night, but its way ahead of schedule. Grunt. Despite all of the airborn I took. Double grunt. Once I get home, I need to do some last minute sewing for AJ and then we will be up early tomorrow for the starting line. Once AJ is off, I will slip off my chore suit and head to work in my dress clothes. Wheeze and sneeze!

  83. SnowBella
    9:12 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Rio: I am scheduled to be home tonight, but right now we have boarded the plane and are awaiting maintenance to do a repair on something I’m sure is vital to a yeep free flight.

  84. BearSpiritDog
    9:15 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Terry: Will Haley’s mom be sending in a photo to FOC?

  85. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:17 pm on January 24th, 2013

    GAH!…I can’t stand hearing about your flight adventures….yeep!…I am never reading your flying posts again – you will have to warn me next time…gasp!

  86. dawson
    9:24 pm on January 24th, 2013

    SnowBella: It does seem like there is a delay or some mechanical problem every time you get on a plane. You need rest but you won’t get any. Can’t you call in sick for once?

  87. Barb & Maggie
    9:25 pm on January 24th, 2013

    Dawson, we have been busy all day. Running around getting things in order for next week. Those 3 FOCs are awesome.

    Wow, Rebecca, that is some schedule. Stay well!

    Nighty noodle.

    Idol!…This season is odd for us…sniff!…We usually do not watch the Audtions for Idol…grunt!…It is far too painful and full of wack-jobs…sniff!…But the one thing I have to say I am finding out during this process is Ryan Seacrest is a truly nice human being….snort!…He seems genuinely warm and concerned for the “real” people and their families who audition. This is very heart warming to watch…sneeze!

  89. Masquers
    9:39 pm on January 24th, 2013

    I am so sorry to tell you that our Katie has just gone over the Rainbow Bridge.
    Everything went well in the surgery and the post op.
    I guess she just wanted to keep the Raven company.

    I have to tell Zoë tomorrow morning.
    I will probably not be on the blog.

    Rio – we had gone to bed after a long hard day. But we awoke and felt like we had to check email for some reason. There was a message from Melanie telling us about her puppy.

    This was actually one of the youngest dogs. She was going in to the vet today to be spayed. Everything was fine, then suddenly, she just slipped away. The vet seems to think it might have been a blood clot. In that case, nothing and no one could have changed the course of events.

    It has indeed been a very hard time for that family. We are going outside at midnight to do a special prayer, asking for a “new day” for all of them.

    Melanie: I am so sorry — another loss to your family. But being with Raven is a good thought for both of them (and us). Tell Zoe that we are still thinking of her and sending her our prayers and healing energies. You too, of course.

    Hearts are heavy as we think of Melanie and her family. We are fathered around you in the quilt offering love and comfort.

    Creator, pleas bless and keep Katie’s spirit safe. Please bless she will know she is loved. Please bless she didn’t suffer. And, please bless she will know she was thought of in her passing. Amen.
