    With a special “hey” to the Oleys. Hope youse had fun times yesterday.
    (whispering) how is Zeusikov? and where is my friend TC?). Have a great today!

    HRH, B: Very nice GOOGLE DOODLE today.

    That’s the kind of review I like, short and sweet! Bravo!

    Hello Rose. I am no longer locked in the cellar, but i do spend most of my time there, or just inside the cellar door. I still don’t trust that new guy. It takes me a long time to warm up. I was taught the dangers of huskies when I was a wee babe.
    I was looking out the window yesterday when yet another husky showed up. I hear his name is Tundra. Zeus wanted to kill him. Fortunately, my daddy held on tight to his leash. Then Zeus calmed down.
    Thanks for your concern.

    Good morning all. I think we all wish Spence could write faster, but we love what he does. We don’t want him turning into a James P. and turning out a book a month(with the help of his friends).

    Staff, To answer your questions, yes the extra height seems to have been enough to keep the bunnies away. The iron fence pieces were given to us by Josh who didn’t have a spot for them. We just stuck them in temporarily, but they don’t go all the way around. We are going to move them to the front flower bed.

    Staff, Jessica had half of her broccoli, brussels and cauliflower devoured in two nights. They saw a groundhog out in the yard near the garden. Do you think he would have done it, or more likely rabbits?

    MPM, we saw that the Hawks are down 3-1. Can they make a comeback?

    Tundra is growing (GROWING) up so fast. But he still needed my mothering. He only wanted to be with me me me. Here is a picture of the kids, with me watching from a dignified distance.

    Of course Susan D. could always re-read the novels.

    Rose: I saw the Google Doodle and now I have to do some research on Rachel Louise Carson.

    Good morning all.

    TC, with you being the only Kat in the house, I worry. I just want to make sure you are hugs, rubs, and scritches. I would keep an eye on that Zeusikov . Just in case .

  8. Wose-the small and meek
    8:38 am on May 27th, 2014

    Mama Meash, That is a great picture of youse. Kat is growing up to be a fine young girl. I was just looking at her picture on the boat the other day. sniff.

    I know you will keep order int your house.

    Good morning, everyone (especially the early birds)! Grrreat review 🙂 Liked lastnight’s “Happy” video. HRH B, do you mean Rachel Carson like from “A Sense of Wonder”? Kat, you are growing; what long legs you have! Nice foto of the OH and Tundra. Zeus, remember that your mom and pop love you and the reds:)
    Have a twinkling Tuesday!

    Rachel Carson wrote Silent Spring, when there was no more birdsong, due to pesticide use. She was one of the first environmentalist and pretty much started the anti-pesticide movement in the early 60s. She is Barb’s hero!

  12. Mollypop's Mom

    I remember reading Silent Spring when it first came out. It painted a true and scary picture of where we were going.

    Have a great day everyone. Barb is taking off for the office. Today is going to be a madhouse, after the long weekend. She tried to access the blog once from work and was denied on the office computer. Something about Face Book involvement! So will be back tonight.

    Still rock’n & roll’n from Staff’s kool video last night…and best of all a kat was involved. heh.
    A great review and a pun to start the day.
    HOH & DianeC: Say what??? (warned youse I was a dummkopf at these)

  21. Teddy Ruff Rider
    10:44 am on May 27th, 2014

    In response to a question from SiberH, yes, I do love, love, love the water and playing in it. See below, from yesterday in Seneca Creek.

  22. Herd of Hounds
    10:53 am on May 27th, 2014

    DianeC. and Masquers, You’ll get this one (hint: just say the last 3 words quickly run together).
    Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal?
    He wanted to transcend dental medication.

  23. Herd of Hounds
    10:55 am on May 27th, 2014

    DianeC, can the answer to yours be: “Make me one with everything”?

    10:57 am on May 27th, 2014

    HOH, snicker. Youse are too much!

    Teddy, I bet a nice dip in a cool lake sure feels good on a hot day!

  25. Masquers
    11:23 am on May 27th, 2014

    HOH: Okay…got that last one…being a zenkat that one was easy.

    11:25 am on May 27th, 2014

    Rio: We know where your Black Fetish Bear was…in another dimension…of course.

    Wose: Nice dip in the lake…I agree…that would be a Cool Idea.

    Hounds: Those Ballerweiners are cute, but How do they get their little legs up on the bar?

    Meashka–You have a beautiful family (and I’m so happy you haven’t fallen for “helicopter parenting”)
    HOH–I got your and you got mine! (Only I’m missing something on the “demonstrate your Buddhist” comment–maybe give me an hour or 6 for that one.)
    So what happened when Rene Descartes ordered at McDonald’s and refused the offer of an additional promotional item with the words “I think not”?

  29. Diane C.
    11:34 am on May 27th, 2014

    Masquers–HOH got it, and I’m still processing one of hers, but do you know why it takes a Buddhist so long to vacuum a sofa? (And forgive me if I’ve already asked that previously–it’s a favorite.)

    Native American Code Talkers of WWI Provided an Amazing Advantage
    by s.e. smith
    May 26, 2014
    2:30 pm

    You’ve probably heard of the famous Navajo Code Talkers of the Second World War, who contributed immeasurably to US intelligence by using their own language as an encryption tool. You may not, however, have heard of their predecessors: the Choctaw soldiers who distinguished themselves with coded transmissions in their native language in the First World War. This little slice of American history is fascinating, a little bit sad and shockingly obscure, so spread it around and make sure these brave men aren’t forgotten.

    For Native Americans in the early 20th century, there was considerable pressure to speak English and join European-style society. Native children were seized by the tens of thousands and forced to attend boarding schools where the mantra was: “kill the Indian, save the man.” They were severely punished, including being denied food and being beaten, for speaking their native languages, and they were strongly urged to sever ties with their home communities, turning away from reservation life and becoming disconnected from their culture and their history.

    In this context, young Indian men went to war alongside other men serving in the First World War, and as they found themselves in military encampments and communities, some reached out for a sense of home. According to legend, two Choctaw men were having a conversation in their native tongue when a white officer walked by, overheard them and wondered if he’d stumbled upon a solution to one of the most intractable problems of the First World War: no matter how quickly the Allies worked, the Germans were breaking their codes just as quickly.

    During a war, hundreds of thousands of transmissions need to be sent to coordinate supplies, troop movements, military strategy and more. If even one is intercepted and understood by the enemy, it can have serious ramifications. With the Germans routinely reading US transmissions, it was difficult to coordinate and maintain a military advantage, but that changed when Native American soldiers took up the radio microphones and started chatting in their native languages, conveying messages in a code that was unbreakable simply by virtue of being in a totally unfamiliar language.

    Because the Germans lacked Native American linguists on their side, they couldn’t move quickly enough to understand the language and break through the code, allowing the Americans to communicate securely even if the Germans were listening in. Meanwhile, because no machine coding was involved, just translation from Choctaw into English, messages could be passed very rapidly around the lines.

    While their fellow Choctaw at home were isolated, punished for speaking their language and subjected to other indignities, the code talkers played a key role in many battles. When they returned to the United States, however, they largely sank into obscurity — they didn’t talk about their wartime experiences, and many of their own families didn’t know what they had done during the war.

    It wasn’t until the early 21st century that the contributions of the code talkers were federally recognized, with the Code Talkers Recognition Act of 2008. While many of those honored by the event, along with their closest relatives who had advocated for recognition, were already dead and gone, it was a powerful moment in U.S. history and an important step for U.S. government-Native American relations.

    11:44 am on May 27th, 2014

    Diane, thank you for enlightening us. We never knew the Choctaw Code Talkers of WW I. Now we are off to learn more.

    BSD–Great photo! I used to try this when I was small. It didn’t work. (Edgar, Conan and Miss P. play it really safe–they hide in the big closet.

  34. Diane C.
    11:47 am on May 27th, 2014

    O’H–I’ll be joining you on that–I can’t believe the stuff they left out when I was in school…

  35. Siber-H
    12:06 pm on May 27th, 2014

    That is a cute review.

    Mom has read a lot of World War I history, but she didn’t know about the Chochtaw soldiers.
    The History channel is doing a series on the two World Wars.
    The History Channel is to be congratulated on actually showing a history program.

    Teddy, Thanks for the photo! I am glad you like the water. That looks like a lot of fun for a Golden. hmm I wonder if you will ever get Zeta to join you.

  36. Siber-H
    12:15 pm on May 27th, 2014

    Mom is another one who can’t believe what they left out in history classes in school. She hated history in school. It was just a bunch of memorizing facts with no teaching of understanding it.

  37. Masquers
    12:15 pm on May 27th, 2014

    DianeC: The Royal Mum first told us of the brave Navajo Code Talkers who served in WWII, but we didn’t know Choctaw soldiers did the same in WWI. That they both are now officially recognized is righting a major injustice.
    As for school, information was either left out of the history books or changed to suit the mores of the time.
    Siber: The History Channel actually showing history? This is BIG news!

    There was a Navajo Code Talker at one of the Memorial Day ceremonies here in town. This state has done a good job of honoring them.

    Most of the guys that were forced into the Bataan Death March in World War II were from NM. There is a ceremony every year to honor and remember them.

    SiberH!…We got our new TV just in time for the game that starts at 11:00am today…snort!snort!…Those TV guys just left and guess what? Her old DVD player is broke. It won’t work. They tried to set it up but Nadda…grump!…How come everything goes to hell at the same time? We are never going to get to finish watching Juno….wheeze!

  44. Diane C.
    12:34 pm on May 27th, 2014

    Siber-H:”The History Channel is to be congratulated on actually showing a history program.” Amen. Would that we could say the same about the “Learning Channel”.
    I’d like to know more about the Choctaw Code Talkers, so if anyone has additional information…

  45. Diane C.

    12:38 pm on May 27th, 2014

    Donna just used her librarian Superpowers to land us an advanced copy of Paw and Order. The rest of youse are in for a treat this summer. This is something of a spy thriller with a long list of dramatic personae, so it’s a good idea to read it very quickly. The scene covers much of Washington and surrounding suburbs, but Chet is particularly fascinated by a tower that looms over much of the city. New Orleans, Washington, and next….? New York? Our city is very dog friendly.

  47. Herd of Hounds
    12:50 pm on May 27th, 2014

    Thanks for all the WWI and WWI code talkers. Had heard some of II but the WWI is new and also fascinating.
    Masquers, see, you can do these!
    DianeC. didn’t know if “s h o w” would go through as a word so used demonstrated….more to follow if it doesn’t get moderated.
    Angry cat, Washington monument, we are ROFL.

  48. O'Howlers
    12:52 pm on May 27th, 2014

    The History Channel is showing History? Will wonders never cease?
    Bone appétit! Good one (for a cat) Masquers.
    Terry, you are one very fortunate dawg.

  49. Herd of Hounds
    12:52 pm on May 27th, 2014

    DianeC, trying to say earlier but afraid of moderator: You show you yours and I’ll show you mine.

  50. Siber-H
    12:53 pm on May 27th, 2014

    Terry, I know what I see when I look at your photo. I wonder if Chet sees the same thing…have to wait, gah.

    DianeC. We have around 25 books on World War I, but nothing in them about the Choctow Code Talkers…nada…nothing. You know what they say about The Great War. It is the forgotten war.

  51. Herd of Hounds
    12:53 pm on May 27th, 2014

  61. Herd of Hounds
    1:42 pm on May 27th, 2014

    Mom knew she wasn’t completely crazy: 1965, “A Sense of Wonder” -R. Carson published posthumously.
    HRH B, We think not.

  62. Siber-H
    1:43 pm on May 27th, 2014

    Rio, Mom says the same thing about needing to get some stuff done today.

    2:04 pm on May 27th, 2014

    A couple days ago I came across The Sea by Rachel Carson while going through one of my stacks of books and singled it out to read. What with people looking for a lost airplane and finding all kinds of debris in the ocean instead, I figure it is past time to read it.

    DianeC: Interesting history lesson that was left out of the history books.

  64. Masquers

    Good day to all. There is an excerpt from Paw & Order on Chet’s FB.
    Rio: I hope you are very much enjoying your new flat screen TV. DVDs are relatively inexpensive so I hope there is a new one in your future.
    Anchorage is to have showers for several days so I can’t finish my deck. My outdoor work will become my indoor work–so much to do, I am glad I’m retired.
    Terry: as a former librarian I didn’t have the superpowers your wife evidently has. You married well. 🙂

    Does anyone have suggestions about arthritic hands? They have been hurting for days from overwork. Is there anything I can do that will help?

  71. B.Stover
    3:12 pm on May 27th, 2014

    HOH and Masquers: Love the Spanish and French translations.

  72. Herd of Hounds
    3:13 pm on May 27th, 2014

    Yes masquers…I stink, therefore I am. Ya gotta love the romance languages 🙂
    CHobbit: have seen knit, fingerless gloves that look like support hose. Supposed to keep joints warm and flexible. Also a non-stinky form of aspercreme helps (on mom’s thumbs at least).

  73. Wose-the small and meek
    3:20 pm on May 27th, 2014

    HOH, snicker.
    CHobbit, I have the same problem. The knuckle of my ring finger is so swollen, that I can not wear my wedding rings in the summer. Last week I went to the jewelry store to buy a new, larger wedding band.

  74. Diane C.
    3:36 pm on May 27th, 2014

    B. Stover–You nailed it! Poof! He disappears!
    HOH and Masquers–Fab! The Spanish is an interesting addition. (Let’s see how many other translations people come up with…)Here’s Greek: Νομίζω ότι, ως εκ τούτου είμαι (literally “I think that, (so) from that I am”)

    For a long time I only associated Descartes with graph paper and algebra…

    Dawson is known around town as quite a recycler. Yesterday she rode her bike twice.

    Before that she was a door-to-door Schwinn salesperson. Problem was, she couldn’t peddle the bikes 🙂 (heh, heh, heh)

    Fargo!…After a long walk and a trip to the grocery store my friend and I caught up on Fargo….grunt!….Does anyone here really think this show is based on true facts?…sniff!….We do not. There is no way this could have really happened. I think the Coen Brothers are up to their old tricks again…heh!heh!

    Blizzard!…The blizzard episode is the best so far! Holy Flying Fish!….snort!

    Hey. I think my iPaw is telling me to stop messing around and get something done. although said info is actually referring to the distance to work (which by the way, iPaw, happens to be 0) the suggestion is a valid one.

    We are dashing in and out quickly today – so much to do, not enough time to get it done. First show of the year coming up this weekend, plus plumbers, haircuts, errands, dentists, etc.

    But – Hobbit – before working on something that involves your hands, get them ready to work. Spend a few minutes with a heating pad wrapped around the hands, then do some gentle stretches, and if possible, rub some capsasin crème into them. And then after doing the work, repeat the process in reverse, ending with the heating pad. It won’t cure the arthritis, but it will absolutely make it hurt less.

    Bee and all youse other smart guys – we have absolutely no idea what the Descartes conversation is all about – way over our heads. But we do know Rachel Carson and Silent Spring.

    Heavy thunderstorms coming this way within the next half hour – we are preparing our nice secure place under the bed. Mama is casting her eyes in that direction also.

    We here never heard of Silent Spring, but it sounds prophetic.

    Maggie: tell Barb to get her coats out of storage!

    Oh, and we forgot to say thank you to Diane for all your research on the Choctaw code talkers. We had the honor of visiting the Indian Hall of Fame while in Oklahoma, and learned about them there.

    Truly, these young men who were abhorred by their country, but still went to serve in her time of need, should be recognized, honored and memorialized in school teachings and in all military remembrances.

    Here is the Choctaws’ home page about their heroes:

    Thank you for all the advice on my hands (including Rio’s tip not to work-heh).

    Trying to convince myself to go to exercise class. I go 4x/week and last week I missed 2x. Gah

    Well shoot…I thought Rio would chime in and tell me not to go to exercise class but since he didn’t, I’m off. {Rio you have let me down!}

    Rachel Carson did die at 57, evidently from complications from breast cancer. Treatment was pretty brutal back then.

    Howlers, Barb heard about the weather front on her way home from work. Big boomers going on here. I think the huge temp. drop is going to be closer to the lake. We might not get hit so badly this far west.

    CHobbit!….Sorry my friend was out walking while Beau and I were snoozing!…heh!…We missed your plea for HELP or PARDON!

    Maskers!…OMYDAWG!…Fargo was amazing. I can’t wait to hear what Stover and Howlers say about it….sneeze!…I have no words for the flying fish. I am wordless.

    Delays!….Raining in Philly, the game is delayed…grunt!…Gearing up to rain here again, our walk is delayed…heh!heh!heh!

    I think anyone with a male dog knows the answer to that puzzler.
    Later this week we are going to Book Expo, which is the Cannes Film Festival of publishing in this country. A few years ago, Spencer was autographing there, but, sadly, not this year.

    Tonight, Mom made Spaghetti Carbonara. It was the first time she made it, or tasted it, for that matter. Wow. New fave way to eat pasta. Do youse guys like tat? It is made with bacon and eggs! Lots of oil.

    Ms. Hobbitt. There is a product called Arnicare that my mom says works wonders for the type of hand pain that you are experiencing. A friend recommended it to her several months ago and she has found it to be truly amazing. It is a homeopathic type remedy, but should be available in most drug stores. It works on all parts of the body and reduces swelling and inflammation in addition to joint pain.

    Howlers – we love carbonara. It is on the menu for tomorrow. When ever we hav a ham, we save some of the best part to make carbonara – its really good with shredded ham instead of bacon. And tons of fresh Parmesan. Yum!

    Just wanted to say thank you to all that have sent Mom the encouraging cards. They are beautiful and very uplifting. Dad just hit a rough spot and Mom got a little overwhelmed. Hopefully, Dad will get through this and continue with recovery.

    Mom needs to put on her thinking cap for the upcoming auction. Hey, if Donna could get an advance copy of Paw and Order, maybe Spence will be able to put one in the auction. That would be a month earlier than the release date. I know Mom would be tempted to bid alot for that!

    Barb, A woodchuck could very easily have eaten all those veggies. They are hungry herbivores.

    Here is a baby one in my garden in 2009. Little rat face…grump.

    Barb, I do believe a groundhog/woodchuck could eat a ton of veggies. Here is a young one who was light enough to climb the chicken wire fence around my Sugar Snap Peas. This pic is from 2009

    Oh for….grump.

    I refreshed twice and the post wasn’t up. So I reposted. Now there are two posts. Must be time for bed.

    I hope I didn’t offend you Rio.

    Night noodles everyone except LizF. G’day Liz in Oz.

    Yes, today was the probate day. Not much to it, except when I had to attest to the fact that it was in fact Rick’s initials and signature on the will. He signed it the day before he died and he really had a hard time finding the place to sign it and making his initials readable. When I saw the will in court today, it brought that painful memory back. Strangely enough, the judge has tissues on his bench, heh.

    Bluekat, thank you so much.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to write more on this
    topic, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t discuss these
    subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
