Random:

We're experiencing some very hot weather here this week and it feels particularly vicious because summer has only just arrived.

Yesterday, on the hottest day yet, we had a pool break-up party. Put 65 kids, a 50 metre pool, a huge floating climbing frame and junk food together and you have a picture of my day! I took some time out to float in the small wading pool (undercover) and still managed to get a sunburn. Needless to say, it was a great day with the kids all well-behaved and having a great time. Two days of school left before our holidays start ... aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh.

Very exciting start to this week - my house painting has begun. I'm not sure how long it will take because he is sanding back to bare weatherboards in some parts and I still need to replace some dodgy pieces of board but it is shaping up to look so different already. Shall keep you posted with photos as it looks more decent.

Random help required!

If anyone out there near the US east coast can help this dog rescue, please do so. This is a story that moved me to tears.


Shine is a 7 year old male dog who had been chained in an alley of a bodega in NYC for all or most of his life . He had been living there for at least 5 years and was sweet but resigned to a terrible life. The neighbors confirmed he's been there for many years and often barks when the weather is terrible. He's losing his voice because the rain had been often and he doesn't have any shelter from the water coming in from the sidewalk closure.

Shine's owner made it very clear he doesn't want him. He had been trying to get rid of him for years, to anybody who asks. I spoke with one of the neighbors who personally knows this dog and he said the dog is sweet and wants to interact. He was living in terrible conditions and now is saved. We all NEED LOVE...and especially Shine who has never known a soft caress under the chin, a belly rub or a soft bed to lie on. Do you think you are the one who can give Shine the love & a safe home that he has never had before?

Shine is just starting to live. After being chained in an alley in Harlem for over 6 years he was finally rescued. To watch him run in the yard unchained for the first time in life gave us a glimpse at what pure joy was like. He was ecstatic! If running was joy he discovered that toys were bliss. He has been such a happy, happy guy and we have had the privilege of watching him blossom.

Unfortunately, sometimes we do not always get the happy ending we were hoping for. A few weeks ago we noticed he was losing weight. We upped his food but it did not make a difference. He has been to the vets and has had urine analysis, a fecal, complete blood panel, and xrays and finally last week an ultrasound. The news we received was not what we wanted to hear. His liver is enlarged as well as his spleen, his GI tract is thickening and his lymph nodes in that area are swollen. The doctor suspects cancer...and liver cancer is what she feels he has. We are devastated. To finally be free and to now have to fight another battle that he will ultimately lose is just not fair. In the mean time he is happy and does not know he is sick. He still runs through the yard with a toy in his mouth smiling. All we can do is pray for a miracle or two for him. We still hope there is someone who will adopt him and make him their own and we hope that he will be able to enjoy his new found freedom for a long time to come. Please consider making a donation towards his care.

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. I don't know if I'll ever be able to get back on here enough to keep up with things (at least not in the immediate future), but I'm glad there are good folks to keep things going with the forum. If it hadn't been for you, I would have had to shut the forum down because of very frustrating circumstances.

My internet at home SLLLLLOOOOOOWWWWW. I tether through my T-Mobile cell account and normally it's 4G and pretty fast, but the tower is too far from my home to get anything other than 2G (when I get it at all). I would love to switch carriers to AT&T, but unfortunately I'm locked into a 2 year contract because I had to replace my phone when my Blackberry went kaput a couple of months ago.

Right now I'm in my office at work on my lunch break. I don't always have that convenience to check the Net from work, though. It's very frustrating.

Oh, something random: I just ate a microwave burrito because I'm broke until tomorrow when I get paid. Yea me. Rolling Eyes

Dammit. I don't know what one tastes like but now I'm curious.

Random:

The house painting is progressing better than I could have anticipated. The main colour is Dulux's Antique White USA with accents of Monument and Red Capsicum. I am so happy with the total feel - it's fresh, modern yet in keeping with the gable style.

Thanks, Sami and DK. It has been such a satisfying way to end an absolutely shitty year; to see my scruffy home emerge as a fresh, vibrant oasis gives me back some severely depleted energy.

Random:

A problem has arisen: the 'projects' list for my summer holidays may need revising to fit in with my heavy schedule of reading and napping. Sleep

We have microwave burritos! Happy

My mother hasn't been able to find microwave popcorn. I think I'll mail her some.

I need a new wall calendar. This year I've used my jigsaw puzzle one. Need something different.

Wine is better with a view ... human or natural. Wink

Has Peter Jackson divided 'The Hobbit' story into three parts?

Classical music soothes and charms me.

Who can recommend a new smartphone? Not Apple Iphone thank you. Samsung Galaxy? Nokia Lumia?

My Mum will become a new dog owner around Easter. I snicker at what will happen ... Laughing

Hey Guys.

Been having a few Internet issues, but it seems to be all better now.

I have a Samsung phone, don't remember the name, but it has a slide-out keyboard (because I have longish nails and fat fingers) and I like it.

If it wasn't for my microwave, I would starve (well, or at least die from eating too much healthy food )

My house needs cleaning, but I feel a nap coming on.

Hi to Dallas, Dani Blue, Julie, pisces1113, Sami, scorpio102675 and Sharabella.

I had wondered why you've been MIA, Shar. Makes you realise how much we use the internet, doesn't it.

Random:

There's a 90% chance of rain here today; anything to break this humidity would be welcome.

What does it mean when your left hand is itchy? Money in or money out???

Hello everyone!

It has been a busy week, but I'm getting a lot accomplished. We got almost a foot of snow, so I had to spend over 2 hours shoveling today. My whole body aches, so I thought I'd try to relax tonight and take it easy. There's nothing like a snuggle in the bed with a musty smelling dog (she loves frolicking in the snow).

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! Only 2 more days of 2012 to go....

Yes, you? Smile I'm not sure I'll survive the New Year though. Almost a foot of snow and more on the way New Years Eve. I better go stock up on wine. I only have two half bottles in the house. Laughing

No snow here. We got wind, and cold.

Hubby just got a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I believe it's the largest screen on the market. We like the S-pen notetaking feature and large screen. It is pretty big compared to others, but that's what he wants.

When you hand is itchy, you need to wash it.

If you've got wind problems Julie, stop eating beans on burritos. Wink

Hubby has a nice phone - Christmas present? Thanks for the tip.

My Christmas present for all of youse peeps ...

Is it a tablet sized phone, Julie? Too big for a handbag? They are available here for under $300.

Random:

Off to see Skyfall this morning on last day of 2012. Banging Mr Bond!

The Galaxy Note 2 is a handsized phone, about 6in x 3.25in. Samsung does make tablets, (more like 7"x10.5") but the tablets are not phones. There are many Samsung phones. Be careful about the model. And provider (but you already know that, I hope).

I don't care much for this Bond. I really liked Tim Dalton.
