Had him for a week and have changed his name!

I just wanted to leave a quick note and let you all know that puppy is doing fine.  He has such a personality.  We had to change his name from Tuck to Tuff (tough)  He thinks that he is so tough that it just fits him.  Plus, it sounds so much like Tuck that he really wont know the difference.  I will write more tomorrow if I have the time and post some more pictures too.
Until then, take care all.

Great Quotes about Reading

 "Easy reading is damned hard writing."  (Nathaniel Hawthorne)

"From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down, I convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend reading it."  (Groucho Marx)

"It's a very intimate experience, reading a book. You're as close as you get to anyone except in bed. No, closer."  (J. G. Ballard)"There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written."  (Oscar Wilde)

"A conventional good read is usually a bad read, a relaxing bath in what we know already. A true good read is surely an act of innovative creation in which we, the readers, become conspirators." (Malcolm Bradbury)

"Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are."(Mason Cooley)

"A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight." (Robertson Davies)

"Reading, in contrast to sitting before the screen, is not a purely passive exercise. The child, particularly one who reads a book dealing with real life, has nothing before it but the hieroglyphics of the printed page. Imagination must do the rest; and imagination is called upon to do it. Not so the television screen. Here everything is spelled out for the viewer, visually, in motion, and in all three dimensions. No effort of imagination is called upon for its enjoyment." (George F. Kenna)

7 Weeks Old on 7/14/04

He is getting so big! 7 weeks old on 7/14/04. One more week and we should be bringing him home. They brought him over yesterday for us to visit. He is so cute! He also likes the food that we bought for him. His is a little bit more shy than he was before. I'm sure that once he comes home to us that that will change. Posted by Hello

Well, I said I was going to try it out. It works! I used it on a few sites that I like to keep up on any new information, and it sent me an email and let me know that they were updated. Love it.

There is a link to the left that will allow you to subscribe to my page. That way, if you wan't to be notified when I make updates, it is done automatically through blogarithm. It will send you a confirmation email and then you create a password so that you can delete or add subscription as you see fit. It is a great service. I am testing this out right now to see if it works.

Also, you will notice that I am having a problem with my page. I added an adopted pet that it to big for his spot. I have emailed the maker and am hoping that there will be a way to make it smaller. If not he will have to go. I would hate to get rid of him. He really is fun. You can give him a treat. Make him jump for it. Just click on the box, then tease him with it and left click your mouse. He will jump to get it. Have fun.

Damage to the house

The damage to the house was not too bad. It could have been much worse. Thankfully the fire department got there before the wind blew it any closer to the house.  Posted by Hello

Fire at My Mom and Dads

My mom and dad had a fire. Some one was lighting off fire works in the street behind there house Monday night. Someone else, who was apparently a friend of the boys, was trying to be funny I guess and lit a toilet paper roll on fire and threw them in the arborvitae bushes along the back wall. It caught them on fire and then the person who did it too off in his car. The boys that were lighting off fireworks, saw it and called the fire department, then ran over and pounded on the door and tried to get my mom out. They couldn’t speak a word of English but did manage to say “Fire!” The neighbor lady came out and told my mom to get out because she could see the flames over the house. She practically had to pull my mom out. They got the fire out before it caught the house on fire but the damage is done. The bushes are gone. I was up there today helping dad put them in the dumpster after my brother Bobby cut them down with his chain saw. Hard work. The siding is all buckled and one window broke. A lot of the other plants and bushes are ruined too.
