Is "so money" a new term I am not familiar with? Or does it mean that we need to send some or we get some?

What is an android device?



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

A phone or tablet that uses the android operating system instead of Windows (or lion/linux/etc).

The operating system looks a little different, and what you can put on it is a little different although more and more, that's not the case.

Android is open source, which means anyone can look at the code and build for it. Windows and mac-n-cheese-n-cheese OS are restrictive, there are some things that they don't share.

In terms of the devices--I guess it depends. I have an android phone, and have been uber-happy with it. I have Windows 7 on my laptop, and it's good too. The Kindle Fire is Android, but not compatible with quite as much stuff--meaning there are some apps that I'd like but aren't available...yet. Always changing, and more and more developers are building for all platforms(OS).

Why are you asking? Are you looking at something specific?

Saw this and just wondered.

If you are reading this on Thursday, and have an android device, you might want to download this for FREE today. It's awesome for anyone who is interested in birds, even casually. Remember: FREE!

Dname - did you see the dog on the runway at LaGuardia on the news? Seems to me that it was also that NY airport where the showdog went missing from the cargo hold a couple of years ago? Does Rusty realize this? There are doggie airports that bring traffic to a standstill. BTW, I don't think they ever found that poor show dog. Hope someone found it and gave it a good home. Could have been JFK, but I somehow think it was LGA.

The show dog got lost out of JFK. No, he was never found. Which is odd, it is such a populated area. There are wetlands, but you can't ever be more than a mile from a densely populated area.

I took Rusty back to Queens and walked him around for hours. Not sure he liked it.

And home from work, stupid rain. At least we didn't have to keep the kids in the cafeteria the entire time today. We can't run the projector because the theater backdrop is in front of the screen and I'm not about to risk the wrath of the art teacher for touching it.

Inky, you should have said you were looking for Leak Frogs, I'm up most of the night with wootalyzer running, if you want something specific, like Poof wants those bug things, we can all be eyes for you!

Came home from the dog park. Checked the computer. It said 10 minutes to the next woot (a woot off tracker).
Figured if I sat down and waited 10 minutes, I would never get back up to go to the store.

So.....crap.

If I recall correctly, the reward for that dog was huge. You would certainly think someone would have turned it in. However, if perchance someone gave it a good, loving home, I think that is a better life for the animal probably than the show circuit and all that goes with it.

Especially since the dog was sighted in the poorer area near the airport.

My grandmother raised poodles, and I know from first-hand experience (at least did know and imagine nothing too much has changed) that the top show dogs often live with the handler and most in a kennel environment. They are not really treated, for the most part, like cherished house pets. It is a fairly grim existence - practicing the poses, constant grooming, traveling in cargo holds, being caged during a benched show, etc. I really feel sorry for them.

I wonder if there isn't a pack of "lost dogs" in that area. I can't imagine that's an uncommon area to lose a pet, and if it's low income it may be a common pet dumping area too. Poor dog.

If there was , they would be pitbulls. I don't think the greyhound or whippet would survive with them.

Plucky, daring sidekick?

All the grocery stores around here sell pizza dough. Sometimes in weird spots, but usually near the deli.

But, it is easy to make a bunch and freeze, too. I prefer that.

Haircut. Is much shorter on the sides now, I like it.


Poof- I already saw the bird book, and downloaded it. Haven't looked at it yet.
