  1. Yikes! One Reason that People Don't Like to Approach People Themselves Anymore

    I have heard a few people mention they regretted having kids, too. Again, very rarely, only in private circumstances, and with the "I'm not supposed to be saying this" expression. It does make me...

    Coda is the most food-motivated cat I've ever known, and she reminds me of a hound baying on the trail on the very rare occasions when I have food and must call her. She's particularly fond of...

    How Tall Was Ahlerich?

    I'm rereading Ahlerich by Klimke. He refers to him as "large" several times, usually in reference to the struggle to keep enough pounds on his frame. Ahlerich was apparently a very shy and picky...

    Love the insurance agent's response!

    HRH Rosalind (Siamese) was what I always called a Greek Chorus cat. She was very talky, but it wasn't just noise. She had things to say. Every aspect of...

    Just updating since the thread is a few years old.

    All of the above still applies absolutely. I haven't changed my mind yet, contrary to the predictions of countless people who assured me that I...

    The store is responsible for the crosswalk.

    She actually contacted the store chain HQ first before she ever hired an attorney, and they blew her off and said they had no liability at all. This...

    Interim update. I talked to stepmom yesterday.

    She showed me an email from her lawyer saying things will be filed this next week and apologizing for the delay and thanking her for patience. I...

    I read a true story once where the sellers' cat came into heat. They were planning to breed her in the future but NOT yet, and, of course, to a carefully selected purebred mate when the time did...

    I shop at Goodwill for more than just price benefits. A lot of the stuff in stores these days I wouldn't be caught dead in. And I'm perfectly comfortable with my body, but I want to be noticed for...

    As I recall my copy, it went through 1984 Olympics, and Ali didn't do much more after that. And Klimke's dead. Doubt they can update it too much. Still, if they do, I can enjoy this one while...
  12. PSA: The Ahlerich book by Klimke is no longer expensive!

    I have for years been looking for a replacement copy of Ahlerich: The Making of a World Champion that didn't cost a lot. My former copy was loaned out, reloaned, and lost its way home. But the...

    I wonder if a letter to the editor on the subject of "why people should never feed horses without the owner's permission" sent to the local paper would do some good. Don't even have to go into your...

    There is a program that puts an old-fashioned Windows Start menu on your W8 and automatically takes you there on booting up. Work retrofitted almost everybody's when they gave us all W8 laptops last...

    Does AC give any kind of report back to the person who complained? It would be nice to have something brief like, "We checked, and those aren't blindfolds. They are fly masks and can be seen...

    It's not just a matter of not clicking. I could and do skip over the openly titled ones. But some people mistitle.

    And those are just the intended political threads. Some people are incapable...

    I'd contribute. Discussion that degenerates and must start to go after the people who disagree instead of sticking to the issues themselves bugs me regardless of which side of it my opinions fall...

    My main thought on checking returns this morning was yet another piece of evidence that your vote DOES matter. One of the local races was decided by 41 votes. That's in a county that had around...
  20. Horsey dreams (as in when you're asleep)

    Last night, I had a wonderful dream. I was looking through a garage sale, and there among the old clothes and knickknacks, I found a Totilas weanling filly. Black with a star, the most elegant,...

    That brought back a fond memory of HRH Rosalind. The day that I drove to the cattery to pick her 10-week-old kitten self up, she spent the entire several-hour ride back trying to open the carrier...

    I could never, ever compromise on religion. Would have to match up with an SO there.

    But some of you would be surprised to know that not everybody in my church is conservative politically. And...

    One test of a truly intelligent cat, IMO.

    I pick up a can opener. Am I about to reach for cat food (or cat-approved people food) or for something only peoplish in which cats wouldn't be...

    I've known one. I've known a wide variety from average to brilliant, but yes, I knew one cat who I truly think would have been a candidate for the short bus were he a human. He even almost had a...
