Uggie at the Golden Globes

“Uggie, the dog from The Artist – which is supposed to be good – stole the show last night at the Golden Globes,” Spence says.

“If you say so,” says Admin. “I wasn’t watching. As for the movie, never heard of it.”

“It’s a silent movie,” Spence says. “Meaning that on the set, Uggie’s trainer could give vocal commands instead of hand signals.”

“To the actors?” says Admin. He hasn’t had his coffee yet. Humans have a big mood thing going with coffee.

Welcome Rocco, Bridget (on Thanksgiving), Sparky Ajax Miller (aka Sam), Mini.

    Great looking new FOC’s!

    I could go see how it feels up in AK! Mount Washington in NH has a wind chill factor of -57!!! Too bad the road is closed up there. (cough, cough, Whew!)

    Good Morning all on this beautiful snow and ice sparkling morning.

    Thought Spence was talking about Iggy there for a minute…..
    MLK Day today – No mail, no banking.
    Good Morning Melanie!
    It’s a cold one here too and still very dark outside.

    Good Morning, Melanie, and all!
    We will have to read Chet’s link later. We are watching Season 1 of Downton Abbey on Prime.
    The chicken seems almost defrosted so we may be mading it today. But we are torn on roasting it dry as in this recipe
    Or rubbing oil or butter on as you all suggested.

    We watched season 1 of Downton Abbey on prime and wonder when we’ll be able to pick up season 2. It probably won’t be available until the whole season runs whenever that is.

    I think Rose saw that film. Good luck with the chicken Howlers.

    Good morning Chet and everyone.

    TYB: Try this link. They have on full episodes for a limited amount of time. I think the first episode of Season 2 of Downton Abbey is on until March or February.

    I want to know how you make a defrosted chicken mad.

    10:53 am on January 16th, 2012

    LOL! Can we blame it on the iPaw?

    A very light dusting of snow here on the Island yesterday. Huge white flakes falling for about a minute, then promptly melting. This morning only frost. Some parts around Seattle reported several inches with more on the way (I-90 was closed temporarily due to several collisions) Forecasters are saying they are seeing large inconsistencies in their forecast models here and on the East Coast. This may be the best excuse for inaccuracies in their weather reports…as in…it’s not my fault.

    Howlers: Mon Poulet Roti looks similar to mom’s roasting technique. However, the temp seems a little high. Plain salt and pepper works very well we think.

    Thanks for the link; I’ll try it. In the meantime I’ll bite. How do you make a defrosted chicken mad?

    Barb at work, so not much time.

    Oley, what kind of chicken breed did they raise? Is it the usual commercially raised Cornish Rock hybrid that grows to a huge size very quickly? If you really want to get into some gourmet stuff, Google Label Rouge chickens. There are sources in the US for this product which is a suburb tasting fowl. We have been buying from someone who raises a Lable Rouge breed locally, and the meat taste is much more intense than the regular commercial variety that passes for chicken in the US.

    Hello Plunderers. Sunny and cold here in the middle of the mitten. Mom is feeling tip top. Kitchen is cleaned and something yummy thawing on the countertop that I think will wind up being leftover Thanksgiving turkey pot pie.

    That Uggie! He was a star before The Artist. He was wonderful in Water for Elephants and bonded with this hot, hot, hottie, Robert Pattinson. Mom can’t get enough of “His Holy Hotness.”

  12. Rose
    11:20 am on January 16th, 2012

    Greetings All!

    I did not watch the Golden Globes, but I did see some pictures of Uggie, who does play a large part in “The Artist.” I can’t say enough about how terrific this film is! (Whispering) I think the Prof and I have seen it about 4 times already…a little obssessive, you think? 🙂

  13. Siber-H
    11:20 am on January 16th, 2012

    Never watch the awards shows.

    You guys that are watching all this stuff on the internet. Do you actually watch it on your computer monitor or on a tv screen?
    Mom’s attention span for watching something on the computer has never been any longer than a music video or movie trailor.

  14. Rose
    11:24 am on January 16th, 2012

    SiberH: Neither do I. They are way too long, and I dislike that actors, who are paid to act, use award shows as platforms for their political agendas.

  15. Siber-H
    11:27 am on January 16th, 2012

    Good to hear from you last night Natasha. Sure, you can come see some of my diggings and we can talk about old times in the Motherland.

    Rose, seeing a movie 4 times is not obsessive when you like the movie. Mom has done that.

  16. BearSpiritDog
    11:36 am on January 16th, 2012

    Uggy spotted on the Red Carpet…..

  17. Natasha the Nefariou Borzoi
    11:39 am on January 16th, 2012

    Siber- vill be good to have you to console Natash’s vounded heart. Ve thought ve had connection vith soulmate, but alas vas not so. Ve vere only being used for insulation from cold.
    Ve now know that our heart should be better placed vith von vith things in common. Ve vill talk of vonderful things like ice and snow and cold veather

    And Natasha vill no longer have to listen to snorts, fructose and bad harmonica music.

    Now – somevon vill tell Natasha please about globes of gold, and how ve go to get von

  18. Barb & Maggie
    11:55 am on January 16th, 2012

    Nattie, globes of gold are sorta like balls of base.

    That chicken looks delish!

    We saw Uggie last night when they went up for their award. He was very talented and performed for the audience. More entertaining than most of the two-leggeds!

  19. Masquers
    12:33 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Rose: I, too, have watched a beloved film several times. It seems like some you just never get tired of watching. The Artist is not one we have seen, but are looking forward to watching, on your recommendation. If you and the Prof have enjoyed it 4 times, it must be wonderful! (I didn’t know that our featured artist, Uggy, was the terrier in Water For Elephants)
    B&M: We missed most of the Golden Globes last night. The tv kept cutting out and the supposedly live feed on…wasn’t.
    Siber: You asked yesterday if some of us view our shows online, or on the tv via streaming device. It depends on what show it is. Some current shows like Once Upon A Time, Grimm and The Firm we here can only get online. It works out okay though, since the commercials give you the opportunity to get away from the computer for a minute or so.
    Melanie: Thanks for the Downton Abbey link to Season 2 on PBS. It’s good to know we won’t have to wait months to see it. That means I will have to catch up with Season 1 rather quickly.

  20. Melanie
    12:45 pm on January 16th, 2012

    BearSpiritDog: Should you be bragging? “Uggy spotted on the Red Carpet…..” I mean that is something that the Pack get in trouble for!

    TYB: I was asking Oley Howlers, but if anyone has an answer to that question let me know!

    ZoĂ«’s Kindle died. New one coming on Thursday. She’s borrowing mine so she doesn’t go thru withdrawal symptoms.

    Back to reading!

    OMD! Melanie, we were just watching a preview of tonight’s premiere of Alcatraz and I swear I saw a shot of YSAS. But, it couldn’t have been, right? Wasn’t his cop scene in Boardwalk Empire? That we are seeing him everywhere is a very good omen. Heh.

    As to the comment about Uggy…we had not thought of it in quite that way. Good one Melanie!

    Barb, we don’t know what breeds we purchased, but here is a link to her website’s chicken page.

    Siber, we don’t watch any movies or T.V. episodes on our computer monitor. Ther is an Amazon widget on ou T.V.

    It is another frigid morning here at the Kennel, but it is a safe bet that Charris is even colder. AJ is getting ready to run the team, but only after he got the fire going again and made me hot cider. I’m a lucky girl.

    SiberH: We only have a handful of channels, and at present, one television. We don’t watch much TV, but what we do watch is online. I arrived back to work from my time in the lower 48 to a new laptop and a 21″ monitor in my office—the monitor is huge. I told my boss I was going to have the guys over and watch the big game on my big screen. Oh, the eye strain…

  24. Barb & Maggie
    1:45 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Oley, We looked at the Woogsong Holow website. Looks very interesting. A few people in northern Il. are doing large scale pasture poultry raising. It looks like they are raising the regular Cornish Rock, but raising them in better pasture conditions, rather than crowed confinment. They also listed a “Heritage breed” but said it was not available in 2011. That would probably be closer to their laying breeds, which are heritage. You have the option of having the birds cut up, but for $2.00 extra per bird, I would probably pass on that.

    Thanks guys for your replies.

    2:09 pm on January 16th, 2012

    SnowBella: We here can relate. Current shows watched online with 1 tv, with very limited channels, for local news & weather and two more in the bedrooms for watching dvds and streaming.
    You have a very nice set-up at work. Sounds like a great place to go to each day
    AJ, the Giant, sure takes good care of his best gal. You are very lucky.

    Another uggie link. This time an interview with Uggie and his ‘staff’.

  29. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:58 pm on January 16th, 2012

    BlueGrass!….snort!…. Tomorrow is the premier of Justified! Raylan and Boyd back together again….WooooWheeee!… AbbieTheKat, that was a great video. Beau and I both had our little headphones on while we listened to the Cumberland River band. The banjo player looks so tough…heh!heh!…We are hoping the show will be ON DEMAND again this season because for some reason it comes on a bit late at night….snort!

  30. Masquers
    3:28 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Heh. Although Iggy slept through most of the interview, we learned a few new things about the nine year show buz veteran.

    We are looking forward to hearing more of the Cumberland River Band during this season of Justified. Nice cameo by U.S. Marshall Croley Forester.
    Thanks for both links Abbie.

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:44 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Music!…The only thing missing in that band is a Harmonica…heh!…I really think those guys could use me. I wonder if they get to go on the set of Justified….sniff!…If so, I’m not sure who I would snuffle up to first, Walter Goggin or Timothy Olyphant…snorkel!

  32. Snowhook Bella
    4:17 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Rio: I bet many a band is missing the likes of your…um…musical talents.

  33. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:57 pm on January 16th, 2012

    AbbieTheKat!…Please tell Mrs. Staff to check her SDD…snorkel!…It’s a matter of most urgency…grunt!

    5:44 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Rose: According to Belle Starr, none of the names would have been spelled correctly on the Nome drop bag if it weren’t for her close supervision and her internal spell checker.

  37. Rose
    6:56 pm on January 16th, 2012

    iPup! I love it!

    Rose; After watching the preview, The Artist is now on my Must See List.

    Sending healing thoughts for Zoe. I think she tried to do too much too soon.

  43. Snowhook Bella
    7:59 pm on January 16th, 2012

    iPup! She’s a must have and very portable.

  45. Snowhook Bella
    8:11 pm on January 16th, 2012

    I still move that one of the Newf’s sit on Zoe to make her rest. She seems to over do it.

    Here’s hoping that Zoe and B. Stover are feeling tip top very soon.

  46. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:32 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Feeling!…. My friend isn’t feeling well either, but I don’t think she is sick per say…grunt!….She’s just feeling mad about some things…heh!…So I guess she just feels like I do all of the time. …heh!

    Grimm!…Oh no, now she’s got that Grimm show on again….yeep!… I wish we would just watch Downton Abbey tonight…snuffle!

  47. BearSpiritDog
    8:37 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Oh, B! Not you too. Do get some rest. Both of you.
    Zoe and B, we hope you are both feeling better in the am.
    Going to get a bite of supper, then off to bed – Bear

    p.s. Don’t forget Alcatraz premieres tonight.

  48. Tupper and Gilly

    Hi everyone –
    Bee and Melanie – hope you feel better soon.

    Mama has 9 days to go!! Yippee!!!

    She got home tonight and found a very nice surprise…Dad and Gramp have moved the laundry room around. They mounted a cabinet drop-down ironing board, moved the pantry shelves over and installed lighting. There is now room for Mama to have a work space to play with clay, instead of having to use the kitchen and constantly interrupt her work to clean up and cook. Now, she can work on clay, and cover it up and walk away for a while and come back and work more without having to set up.

    Yup – we think Dad and Gramp are pretty happy that she is leaving CLL too.

  49. OleyHowlers
    8:44 pm on January 16th, 2012

    We watched the entire first season of Downton Abbey today. Loved it. Now we need to find time for the first two episodes from this season. We are having snow/freezing rain mixture tonighy.

    Barb, when fresh chickens are available in May, we will be buying ours cut up. And this one has not yet thawed out completely, so we still didn’t roast it.

    Bella, checked our SDD. Sounds good.

  50. Snowhook Bella
    8:44 pm on January 16th, 2012

    T&G: What a nice surprise! A proper work space is a must for important work. Just ask Tenzing—he can’t take naps just any ol’ where.

  51. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:51 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Nine!…So has the Crazy One interviewed anyone to replace Stinky Mama? hmmmm?…..heh!heh!….She will never leave that place, nope!…snort!

    Alcatraz!….What time and channel does Alcatraz come on tonight?…sniff!… I do not see it in the listings…grunt!

  52. Snowhook Bella
    8:57 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Franklin and Roger are up top with Tupper right now. They are a good looking trio.

    Handler Jeremy just called. He is broken down not too far from home. To the BelleStarrMobile!

  53. Staff
    9:06 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Staff and the Mr. went to see the Artist. We both liked it a lot. That trailer was really good. It had the feel of the movie captured nicely.

    Rio, I just sent you a SDD. I don’t know if it will help or not.

  54. Masquers
    9:10 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Alcatraz: 2 hour premiere 8pm on Fox.

    Another good review of The Artist!

  55. Barb & Maggie
    9:22 pm on January 16th, 2012

    All the folks that are sick, please feel better tomorrow!

    Oley, How in the heck are they defrosting that thing? We just set it in the sink for a few hours, and viola, ready to cook!

  56. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:34 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Show!…We finally found the show, but now we don’t know what is going on…grunt!…She stumbled onto Betty Whites 90th Birthday party and we got stuck there for too long…sniff!

  57. Masquers
    9:49 pm on January 16th, 2012

    The weather forecast is looking ominous for these here parts.

  58. Tupper and Gilly
    9:49 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Rio – no the CL hasn’t interviewed anyone – and what’s more she told one of the co-workers that she isn’t going to hire anyone; that it “isn’t in the budget”. Huh?
    Mama saw the draft of the Feb hours – CL has assisgned Mama’s hours to one co-worker who simply can’t do them, and has other hours simply not assigned to anyone at all.

    But do not worry your flat little head. Come Feb 1, Mama will be sitting in her brand new work space, making clay stuff and singing songs of freedom!

  59. Staff
    9:57 pm on January 16th, 2012

    dear Tupper and Gilly,
    could you get one of the camera’s that we keep for spying on Spence and put it up at Crazy Lady Land? We want to see what goes on in February. It would probably be as much fun as any TV show going.


  60. Masquers
    9:58 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Dad and Gramp made darn sure the Royal Mum works at home come February 1. What could be more enticing than a work space built especially for her.

  61. Staff
    10:05 pm on January 16th, 2012

    My goodness bear I have been looking at your forecast and I am worried for you. I hope you have lots of water and food stockpiled there. Stay safe and check in when you can.

  62. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:07 pm on January 16th, 2012

    MCD!….Staff are you referring the the Mind Control Device that we have stuck under Spencer’s chair?…heh!… Or the miniture cameras that are hidden in the little baseballs on The Quilt?…snort!

  63. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:13 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Snow!….When my friend came home it was snowing like a bastard outside…grunt!… No one is looking forward to going outside tomorrow morning….wuffle!….She thinks she might not feel very good tomorrow ….Someone sounds fed up with the not so busy-place these days…wuffle!

  64. Barb & Maggie
    10:19 pm on January 16th, 2012

    We started watching the Betty White birthday bash too. That lady is incredible at 90! Her mind and body are both still strong, plus she is a big animal lover and supporter. We LOVE Betty!

    Think is is time to say good night. White Wings will be winging its way to G & B tomorrow. It has been wonderful having it here to read.

  65. Staff
    10:30 pm on January 16th, 2012

    I was talking about the camera’s. The MCD is too valuable to retrieve. Look how quickly Spence got done with Book 5!

  66. Staff
    10:46 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Have to get to bed early tonight. I start working tomorrow.
    Night all.

  67. Tupper and Gilly
    10:47 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Staff – you are making Mama laugh, and that is a GOOD thing!

    We almost – remember, that is ALMOST – wish that Mama was keeping a connection at CLL just to see what is about to happen. And not just cuz Mama is leaving. She knows that there is no such thing as irreplacable employees. Some ladies are threatening to quit when she leaves- Mama tells them not to be silly – the other employees will treat them just fine. But we think CL is just about at the end of her competancy level, and the corporation just dumped a whole new system on her. Its crap, and its not going to work – but CL drinks corporate kool-aid for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so she will not say a word against the corp, but this time they are just wrong.

    We are just glad Mama is getting out – she is SO much happier when she has clay under her nails.

  68. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:56 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Crap!….Golinka, my friend wants to know if this Corporate Crap Dumping is going to affect her ….snort!….She says she is pretty damned tired of Corporate Crap Dumping and she will not tolerate it outside of the not-so-busy place…sniff!

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:59 pm on January 16th, 2012

    Declaration!….With that defiant declaration we are going off to our beds…sniff!….That’s if she can pry Beau off of her lap and get his black butt upstairs…heh!…I’m already gone!….Goodnight!

  70. Macy the Min-pin
