Well, you've read the notes, the notes lunged and put on the dog, and now it is time for you to post until the lunging cows come home.

Are you sure the dog wasn't John Esche having a fit over the PROMISES PROMISES pitch adjustments?

Good morning, all! This is my first NYU Dental Clinic morning as a registered patient. They will examine my oral surgery and - here's the scary part - check out a lesion on my tongue. There may be a biopsy and I may be in terrible pain again today. We'll see.

I have no other news. I have a trip to the Post office to send some music to a copyist and I have work here on both the Herbert recording project and THE LADY OF THE SLIPPER and BABES IN TOYLAND. At some point I want to get back to watching Season Two of ELI STONE. Watching THE CLOSER last night makes me want to see all of the last season again.

Good morning!! Boo and Callie woke me up at 4:30 AM.  For some reason I got it in my head that there was a bat in the house again.  So I was AWAKE!  As it turns out, there wasn't.  I tried to get back to sleep, but soon decided that was fruitless and got up and went for a pre-sunrise walk.  It was beautiful!  It's foggy out but not too bad, and the birds were singing like crazy.  Turned out to be a great way to start the day

Somebody just sent me this, and I couldn't stop laughing:


In her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance.  The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, penned by a US resident, which was posted on the Internet.  It's funny, as well as informative:


Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people re garding God's Law.  I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can.  When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination ... End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations.  A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians.  Can you clarify?  Why can't I own Canadians?
 
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7.  In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
 
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of Menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24.  The problem is how do I tell?  I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
 
4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9.  The problem is my neighbors.  They claim the odor is not pleasing to them.  Should I smite them?
 
5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath.  Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death.  Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
 
6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality.  I don't agree.  Can you settle this?  Are there 'degrees' of abomination?
 
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight.  I have to admit that I wear reading glasses.  Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
 
8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27.  How should they die?
 
9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
 
10. My uncle has a farm.  He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend).  He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot.  Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16.  Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
 
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help.
 
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
 
Your adoring fan.
 
James M. Kauffman, Ed.D. Professor Emeritus, Dept. Of Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education University of Virginia

TOD:   I, too, love songs by the Beatles.  If one considers the Beatles as a military unit like the Marine Corps, then "once a Beatle, always a Beatle."

To that end, my favorite Beatles song (from John Lennon) is "Imagine":

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Considering the reaction to the new mix and the pitch-correction, I'd say that I don't really care what John Esche thinks.  The fact that he would think anything about it, considering we included the original LP mix for the first time on CD, is what makes him such a jerk.  He doesn't even have to listen to the pitch-corrected version.  And funny, he never bitched about the Ryko/Varese release, which wasn't the original LP mix.

Strictly, speaking, DR Ron, "Imagine" is a John Lennon song, not a Beatle song.

re: what age kids learn to read in school.

I asked my sister if she thought my niece was going to learn how to read in kindergarten and she said she didn't think so. Plus my niece will be going to an English school. But she'll be in a french kindergarten (where all the kids are English).

I think my niece could learn to read now. But i'm afraid she would just memorize the words.  She did seem quite proud of herself a couple of days ago when she "read" me her Clifford book. I think she was sounding out some of the words. But there are only a few words per page.

The funny thing is when she was 2 (or maybe 3) she had these Eloise books. And she would memorize the entire books. And then she would "read" them to people.

Dog lovers here will probably not be disgusted by this. But a couple of days ago I was at the park where the bike path I ride on is.

There was this guy walking his dog. It was a little bit hot out. But not like the heat wave we had last week.  Anyhow there was an outdoor water fountain. And this guy let his dog put his mouth in the fountain and slobber/drink out of it.  Now just thinking of all the little kids who slobber out of that fountain ... yuck.

Anyhow there is a dish attached by a chain on that water fountain. So after the guy let his dog slobber in the fountain. He put water in the dish and let the dog drink out of it.

Are we talking about a drinking fountain or a fountain fountain?  If a drinking fountain, did the guy let his dog drink out of the bowl of the fountain or let his dog slurp water off the spigot of the fountain?  If the guy let his dog drink from the bowl of the fountain which is nothing more than a receptacle for the water the mouth does not catch or drink coming from the fountain spigot, then I see no problem with this.

If the dog put his mouth or tongue on the spigot that might be unsanitary, but it would certainly be just as unsanitary for a child to drink  this way or to slobber from the bowl of the fountain...or any fountain for that matter.  I would be much more concerned about a parent who would let their child's mouth touch a fountain spigot or drink from the receiving bowl of a drinking fountain or drink from any kind of fountain in which God knows what kind of debris blows in it, has been placed in it, what other kinds of animals or birds have dabbled in it. 

A dog is the least of a parent's worry about a public fountain...after all, a dog's mouth is supposedly cleaner than a human's...

Title: Re: THE INCIDENT OF THE LUNGING DOG
Post by: MBarnum on July 13, 2010, 12:32:03 PM
I am sad to say that my buddy Dog Bosco passed away this morning.

He was the best dog in the world. It was my good fortune to just happen to be at the Humane Society the day Bosco was there, some 4 or 5 years ago (I forget how long it has been). He was so well mannered and quiet and sweet, I knew right then and there I was going to be a dog owner...and believe me it was not my intention on that day to get a dog...in fact it was the farthest thing from my mind as I had only gone in to donate some old blankets on my way home from the gym and just decided to walk around.

I remember the staff telling me that the night before someone had accidental left Bosco's cage door open, and when they arrived the next morning Bosco was still sitting in his own cage.

I will miss him so very much, and so will cat Freddy who followed Bosco everywhere, including our walks around the block.

And I appreciate HHW allowing me to share all the silly photos of Bosco over the years. I did love to show him off.

I am sad to say that my buddy Dog Bosco passed away this morning.

He was the best dog in the world. It was my good fortune to just happen to be at the Humane Society the day Bosco was there, some 4 or 5 years ago (I forget how long it has been). He was so well mannered and quiet and sweet, I knew right then and there I was going to be a dog owner...and believe me it was not my intention on that day to get a dog...in fact it was the farthest thing from my mind as I had only gone in to donate some old blankets on my way home from the gym and just decided to walk around.

I remember the staff telling me that the night before someone had accidental left Bosco's cage door open, and when they arrived the next morning Bosco was still sitting in his own cage.

I will miss him so very much, and so will cat Freddy who followed Bosco everywhere, including our walks around the block.

And I appreciate HHW allowing me to share all the silly photos of Bosco over the years. I did love to show him off.

We've explored a bit of Ashland today - the University, the Theological Seminary, and the Public Library, where the Chautauquan who's portraying Orson Welles tomorrow evening presented a program called, "Two Beams or Not To Beams:  A Tribute to the Golden Age of Radio."  He had a radio script for audience participation and Richard and I both took part.  That feature of his program worked well, but his use of radio clips on cassette was pretty clumsy.  Good info, though.  We then had a late lunch at Friendly's and drove around the north side of town on our way back here.  It poured rain during the library program, so before we leave for this evening's events, we'll call the hotline to see if they're being moved from the band shell in the park to the high school auditorium.

Somebody just sent me this, and I couldn't stop laughing:


In her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance.  The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, penned by a US resident, which was posted on the Internet.  It's funny, as well as informative:


Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people re garding God's Law.  I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can.  When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination ... End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations.  A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians.  Can you clarify?  Why can't I own Canadians?
 
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7.  In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
 
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of Menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24.  The problem is how do I tell?  I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
 
4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9.  The problem is my neighbors.  They claim the odor is not pleasing to them.  Should I smite them?
 
5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath.  Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death.  Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
 
6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality.  I don't agree.  Can you settle this?  Are there 'degrees' of abomination?
 
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight.  I have to admit that I wear reading glasses.  Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
 
8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27.  How should they die?
 
9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
 
10. My uncle has a farm.  He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend).  He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot.  Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16.  Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
 
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help.
 
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
 
Your adoring fan.
 
James M. Kauffman, Ed.D. Professor Emeritus, Dept. Of Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education University of Virginia

Dog lovers here will probably not be disgusted by this. But a couple of days ago I was at the park where the bike path I ride on is.

There was this guy walking his dog. It was a little bit hot out. But not like the heat wave we had last week.  Anyhow there was an outdoor water fountain. And this guy let his dog put his mouth in the fountain and slobber/drink out of it.  Now just thinking of all the little kids who slobber out of that fountain ... yuck.

Anyhow there is a dish attached by a chain on that water fountain. So after the guy let his dog slobber in the fountain. He put water in the dish and let the dog drink out of it.



Are we talking about a drinking fountain or a fountain fountain?  If a drinking fountain, did the guy let his dog drink out of the bowl of the fountain or let his dog slurp water off the spigot of the fountain?  If the guy let his dog drink from the bowl of the fountain which is nothing more than a receptacle for the water the mouth does not catch or drink coming from the fountain spigot, then I see no problem with this.

If the dog put his mouth or tongue on the spigot that might be unsanitary, but it would certainly be just as unsanitary for a child to drink  this way or to slobber from the bowl of the fountain...or any fountain for that matter.  I would be much more concerned about a parent who would let their child's mouth touch a fountain spigot or drink from the receiving bowl of a drinking fountain or drink from any kind of fountain in which God knows what kind of debris blows in it, has been placed in it, what other kinds of animals or birds have dabbled in it. 

A dog is the least of a parent's worry about a public fountain...after all, a dog's mouth is supposedly cleaner than a human's...

The dog was drinking from the drinking fountain when there was a dog bowl attached to same water drinking fountain!

And yes it looked like the dog was licking the spigot, not merely the fountain bowl.

On another sad HainesHisWay.com day, someone referenced a place called "Rainbow Bridge"...it may have been JRand, IIRC.  At any rate, I remembered it and looked it up when my cat Vickie died.

It brought me some comfort, Mike, and I offer it to you in hopes that you will always remember the love youo received from him and that you will move past grieving and share your love with another pet:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Author unknown...

Thank you, Ron.  And there is this part, as well.

Beyond The Rainbow

As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wonderous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful--lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright.
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright glow pierced the night.
'Twas the glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no human eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

There is actually a whole new movement in veterinary care where they do at home euthanasia, for wont of a better word.  We've always been lucky to have had personal relationships with our vets, and we've always asked them to come to our homes to put our dogs to sleep when it was time.  As sad as it's been, it's given us comfort to know their final moments were in comfortable, familiar settings.

And that could explain the dogs behavior.  If I were jogging I would not want to get too close to a dog as I passed.  Running straight at them can make them feel threatened.

I've been rearranging shelves to hold the scores I'm bringing home from the McGlinnventory. I need another wing, but I'd settle for one more room. The tv is taken over by tributes to George Steinbrenner, and I think it's gone on too long.
I lived in upstate New York while Steinbrenner was actively involved in ruining the Yankees. We would love going to games and cheering on whomever the Yankees were playing.

Topic of the Day:  I've never been much of a Beatles fan, but I like some of what they've done...however, two songs that I just really don't like (and I don't know why) are "Michelle" and "Yesterday."  I can't listen to them.

:P

George, I'm halfway there with you.  While I have nothing against Michelle, I have never liked Yesterday.



Am in complete agreement with George. "These are words that go together well" or whatever the line is just grates on my nerves when I hear that song. And the flat French ... Well, there are better songs.

I like Yesterday much better than Michelle.  I too am not a Beatles fan.

I am not a big fan of big mean dogs. But I don't like the idea of that guy smacking or cursing at the dog.

And that could explain the dogs behavior.  If I were jogging I would not want to get too close to a dog as I passed.  Running straight at them can make them feel threatened.

But the point is I wasn't running straight at him.  The owner moved the dog to his opposite side and went onto the grass (I was on the sidewalk).

The dog may not have made the distinction.  It also seems the owner is aware the dog has issues and should have had better hold of the dog.  A "leave" command also can be helpful.  Not by you, by the dog owner. :)

Kevin, did you see Brent In PHANTOM in Las Vegas?
Saw Brent twice in "Busker Alley" on the road as his role got smaller and smaller and yet he still delivered a wonderful performance, as he did in "Grand Hotel." Wish I could have seen him in "Phantom." I would almost consider a trip to Vegas, aka hell on earth, to be worth it.

On another sad HainesHisWay.com day, someone referenced a place called "Rainbow Bridge"...it may have been JRand, IIRC.  At any rate, I remembered it and looked it up when my cat Vickie died.

It brought me some comfort, Mike, and I offer it to you in hopes that you will always remember the love youo received from him and that you will move past grieving and share your love with another pet:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Author unknown...




That always brings tears to my eyes.

Thank you, Ron.  And there is this part, as well.

Beyond The Rainbow

As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wonderous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful--lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright.
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright glow pierced the night.
'Twas the glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no human eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.




This, too.

DR MBarnum, when I lost my ancient 22 year old kitty, I found great comfort at www.petloss.com  . They have a chat room and there's almost always someone to talk to, live, who is feeling the same thing you are. They got me through many times when I was so sad that I couldn't sleep. Scroll down and you will see the chat room. The people with "wolf" at the end of their name are people who have been through the grieving process and are there to help others through their own grief. I haven't been there lately, but my name is Artywolf.
