    I guess I should show y'all this little guy.

    Y'all haven't met Kita the Akita (we didn't name him..) yet I don't think. My parents got him about...a year ago now, I guess? Not quite sure to be honest. No more than a year though. Well we lost Leo about a year and a half ago to GDV. It was very sudden (as is the case with most...

    What's a good, cheap steam cleaner?

    Need one of those hand held steam cleaner things that you can direct the blast of steam with. Checked out Lowes and Home Depot and they're very expensive, like $80 and I am not a rich man. Figured this would be a good place to ask for suggestions, so do y'all know of any for cheap that I...

    Whatever happened to Sage?

    Not sure why but she just randomly popped into my head. Granted I've been gone for a few weeks with finals but even before then I don't seem to recall her posting too much. I did a forum search just now for her name but no threads came up. She still around?

    She's grown up quite a bit since we got her.

    I think this is the first image I posted of Nikki here. I think it's the first picture I got of her too. I was so very excited to see a kennel in the middle of the floor after coming home from an Accounting class that prevented me from going with my parents to see the German Shepherd that a...
  5. G I don't think that's a good way to ship a puppy.

    If not for postal clerks, puppy would have been DOA | It's like reading an Onion article. Is the Star such a publication? I hope I've been duped, but fear I've not. At least the dog's alright.

    Which political party is right? *turns into a bit of a rant..*

    Of course, politics! Always a fun topic! The obvious answer being "neither", but that's not really what this thread is about. It seems to me that there has to be a 'right' way to do things. A way that is the correct way to respond in times of economic disaster, in times of boom times, in...

    Anyone ever had a sleep study done?

    Probably have sleep apnea, should probably get it diagnosed so they can give me a pill or the mask thing or whatever. What does this entail? I reckon I gotta go to my doc, then get referred, then what do they do? I just go into a clean, white room with bright lights or something and snooze...

    Is there anything you can do to vegetables to make them taste better?

    Carrots are pretty obvious: honey glaze them. But what about peas? And corn? And all the other vegetables out there? Anything that can be done to make them bearable? Best I've found is to put pepper on corn, or do the sweet, creamy corn, but I'm at a complete loss as far as peas and other...

    Criminey it's hot out there!

    It's a freaking GORGEOUS day outside but I feel like I'm being barricaded inside due to the heat. It's downright oppressive here lately. In Dallas over the weekend it was 100 with an index of 113, but at least that was a dry heat so it wasn't bad at all. Here it's 99 with an index of 105, but...

    I like it! New financial reform bill.

    The Egg, a short story.

    The Egg You were on your way home when you died. It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered...

    Can I get y'alls opinion on what this says?

    I've been trying to find some genealogy stuff forever and I found a document that's kind of a school record type thing from one of my ancestors (specifically the one that immigrated here). Pretty cool but worthless because it's rather illegible. However there's an exercise where you have...

    Ohio does something right for once.

    Or well, they're working on it. Getting the 'vicious breed' designation removed from pit bulls. The damage has been done already to the breed's reputation but at least it's a step in the right direction. Ohio lawmakers seek to remove 'vicious' pit bull designation - DVM

    Someone please translate Soccer for me.

    Did we win the World Cup? There's some stuff about Algeria and injury time and London and I don't understand any of it. Lay it down simply for a non-soccer fan.

    Do laws even matter any more?

    I've been thinking pretty much exactly what this article says, just never expected a media outlet to say it. Do laws even matter today? - Short read, but I think it covers where we are today. The law system is very arbitrary to those in power. I imagine it's always been to...

    The Animal-Cruelty Syndrome - Pretty good. At first I thought it was just the one page but then noticed there were still 6 more to go. Though I have to disagree with one thing: Wasn't aware that keeping a pit bull was 'ganglike activity'. I thought it was just owning a...
