    Good morning HOH and all.

    Cloudy and windy here, but no big snow till the weekend.

    Probably won’t be able to catch the radio program, heading to work this morning. But is there a link?

    Barb, if you search WCAI CApe and islands NPR, the site should come up. Look for the show called The Point. Bout the best I can tall you.

    Oh well, we have already missed it. But we are sure that OFA was scintillating.

    Bright sun is making the snow sparkle, but cold temps are keeping it all right where it is.

    Callie and Gilly playing in the snow. (Tupper is much too dignified to join in)

    I had to leave for work, but was able to listen to a few minutes of the interview before heading out. Boy, that SQ/PA is a smart guy! Very impressive.

    Looks like Callie and Gilly were having a great time!

    Snowing here!

    Playing in the snow! That looks like fun. But to really play you need a lot more snow. I wonder how the snow cover is doing up in Alaska.

    Does CHobbit know?

  13. B.Stover
    1:53 pm on January 29th, 2015

    For some reason I can’t play the video of Callie and Gilly just as I couldn’t play Teddy’s Dad’s video the other day. Irritating.

    B: I don’t know if this will help or not, but the only way we can see those Videos is by Viewing on Windows Media Player.

    3:26 pm on January 29th, 2015

    Bear: I keep getting a message about updating Quick Time which I’ve done but it isn’t updating for some reason. I found the video on FB. Callie and Gilly are having fun! They make me want to go outside and play…almost.

    It’s snowing here…again.

  20. Siber-H
    3:55 pm on January 29th, 2015

    Maquers, Thanks for the link to NPR.

    Howlers, I agree. That is the best Superbowl commercial.

    Quick Time doesn’t work for me either. I would love to see the videos but I have run out of patience with Quick Time

  21. BearSpiritDog
    4:50 pm on January 29th, 2015

    Siber-H: Maybe Tupper’s Mama & Teddy’s Dad could post the videos to YouTube and you would be able to see them that way.

    Riö: Thanks for doing the Plunderer Iditarod map. You’re the best!
    Now…about this trip to the Superbowl…do you think there’s room for one more?

  27. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    6:45 pm on January 29th, 2015

    OK, there will be no blubbering, tearful comments coming out of us. Promise.

    Junk food night here. Baked jalapeno peppers stuffed with cream cheese, cheddar and bacon, then sausage and onion pizza. Heartburn here we come!

  28. O'Howlers
    6:58 pm on January 29th, 2015

    BM&L, that junk food dinner sounds super yummy!!
    And Tundra, we forgot to tell you that our mom agrees with your mom about the way Budweiser portrayed the wolf. Other than that, theirs was a good commercial. Wonder why they couldn’t think of something more menacing, and not disparaging.

    Dinner time!

    That car ad was good. We liked it here.

    Howlers, what does your mama know about navicular disease in horses? Lily’s 5 year old Appy probably has it. Vet was gloom and doom, and pretty much said they should try to get a trade-in with the stable. Would be easy if it were a car, but Lily loves this horse. Stable is suggesting special shoes and possibly a drug that increases blood flow. They will not due surgery, as it doesn’t look like there is much chance of being sound after that. Worst case scenario, they would find a home for him as a pasture buddy.

    Hi everyone. I am cleaning house in preparation for a guest I will have for a few days next week. There is nothing like having guests to get a backlog of work done.

    The Anchorage “bowl” area got around 10-13″ of snow last Friday. Nothing really of note since. The Talkeetna area got 15-17″ (Talkeetna is about 30 minutes north of Willow). So everyone is relieved but still wanting more snow.

    We rewrote this to see if it gets past moderation.

  32. O'Howlers
    7:41 pm on January 29th, 2015

    B,M,&L, Mom has heard of navicular disease, but she is trying to remember exactly what she knew about it. It may be that one of the horses we looked at was found to have that in a pre-purchase exam, or maybe it was a worry for Shar, Pop’s old horse who had so darn many foot problems.
    We recommend finding an excellent farrier; farriers are so much more important to horses, and horse owners, than vets, in Mom’s opinion. Correct trimming and optional “footwear” and/or pads can go a long way.
    Here is just one article that explains.
    http://www.novickdvm.com/navicula.htm

  33. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    8:04 pm on January 29th, 2015

    Howlers, that is exactly the same article we read and then recommended to Kelly earlier. According to the article, a long hoof and underrun heel can be easily corrected, but evidently Iowas does not have that issue. They are not going to over-react and are going to look at the shew-ing correction first. I think raising the back and putting a cushioned wedge in will help.

    Rio, American Idol is on here right now. This time I remembered and maybe you can remember this time too.

    8:18 pm on January 29th, 2015

    Remembering!….Yes, tonight we are going to be on our A-Game and not miss any of the auditions on Idol?…snort!….Jeopardy just asked a question about Parenthood and the smarty pants player flubbed it…grump!…Who does not know the Braverman family?…wheeze!

    Inaccurate!…Howlers, give us some examples…snort!…I thought I was learning history from the History Channel…grunt!

  41. Tupper's Mama
    9:00 pm on January 29th, 2015

    Barb – navicular is not as common as it used to be. Farriers know a lot more about diagnosing an inflamed hoof and trimming correctively.
    Iowa may be fine as a pleasure horse with a good farrier. We knew a riding school horse with ND – great farrier kept him up to speed, and when he was inflamed, he rested.
    We truly hope there can be some help for this pony.

    TG’s Mama, we enjoyed your video this a.m. The rain here stopped about noon and it went up to 62! Mom thought about a pair of shorts but:1) her knees are too pudgey and 2) she doesn’t wish to anger the snow dogs so will keep snowflakey themed outfits on thru the Iditarod.

    In 1765, Sam Adams was a portly middle-aged father. He was not a drunk.
    No British soldiers were stationed in Boston in 1765. Hutchinson was not the governor.
    We read that they even pretended that Sam Adams was at the Massacre!

    Here is just one of many sites that tell you some of the inaccuracies. This show was pure fiction.

Right now I am enjoying young people auditioning to become a superstar!…snort!

    10:45 pm on January 29th, 2015

    Annie and Biddie – remember, on YOUR birthday, be good to your mama. You wouldn’t be here without her.
    And that means sharing the cake.

    Been an interesting day. Remember a while ago, Mama got a “new” car? She traded in her beloved, zippy sports car for a more practical car that could be used to carry Callie around and would be easier for Gramp to get in and out.
    So….since then, she has been less than thrilled with driving. Where her car used to jump when she stomped the gas pedal, the SUV kinda just went” Huh? You talking to ME?”.
    Plus, there were constant repairs needed on the SUV – its been in the shop 4 times!
    She finally confessed that she really disliked that car. Guess what – so did Gramp and the Storyteller.
    So now, there is a hot red, shiny new sports car in the driveway. V6 turbo, 306, 6 speed.
    HOT DAM. Mama is BACK!

  53. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    11:06 pm on January 29th, 2015

    Wishing a nice Birthday evening to Annie, Biddie, and especially to their Mama.

    We watched the last night of Parenthood. There were some smiles, many tears, and no comments as we say goodbye to the Bravermans.

    Night all.

  54. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
