Jul 8th 2011 8:39PM A "grooming aid worthy of display"? To whom would it be displayed? Close friends? The general public? Co-workers? Family? Where would you display it? On a pedestal like a sculpture? Hanging in a window like a sun-catcher? Personally, I do not want to see anyone's "grooming aid" of any sort displayed anywhere. It is a personal item and should remain just that - personal. Moreover, what type of person would feel the need to make this or any other grooming aid public?
Jun 28th 2011 9:45PM This is "AOL Noticias" - a Spanish-language web page. If you are having trouble reading it, click on the Google translation link at the top of the page. As an alternative, you can stick to English-only web pages. The choice is yours.
Jun 23rd 2011 1:22PM Fidget. Jiggle one leg and then the other, then both at once. Do "in-flight" exercises. Stretch using all four limbs. Reach your arms waaay over your head. Yawn loudly. Return arms to arm-rest supremacy position. Just when your seatmates think you are done, do it all again. Then, repeat at random intervals. While talking use wide hand gestures. Lean into the person next to you when talking - or doing exercises. Sing just loudly enough to be heard, but not loudly enough to be understood. If singing is off-key, so much the better. Complain about being "forced" to take a 3-week vacation from work. This is especially effective if your destination is Hawai'i, Cancun, or some other resort destination. Complain about the plane, the seat, the air temperature, whatever comes to mind. Cite "statistics" (even if you have to make them up) about the "germs" found in airplane air, pillows, blankets, surfaces.
Of course I would never do these things - it would be exceedingly rude. But I have experienced them.
Feb 12th 2011 5:48PM If they are that tight, where does the, er, a, "package" go? And won't it be squashed? Does not look or sound comfy.
Jan 31st 2011 9:20PM The expression you ask about "knit picking" is actually "nit picking." It is named after the nits from lice in head hair. Once upon a time, the only way to get rid of lice was to hand pick the nits from each strand of hair to which they had adhered. Apparently this was a tedious and time-consuming task.
Jan 29th 2011 2:17PM I like Kona Coffee from the Big Island of Hawai'i. There are several growers and, best of all, it is Made in America!
Nov 19th 2010 4:10PM Doug, I agree.
It would seem this has been going on for quite some time. Their president says they have been trying to deal with the California county complaints "for years."
Apparently, they rip people off for as long as they can get away with it. Then, when they are caught, they whine about the people who are trying to bring them to justice.
WOW! What a corporate policy. How proud they must be of their "cleverness."
Nov 17th 2010 7:37PM It is a lot less expensive to brush your dog's teeth with a doggie toothbrush and doggie tooth paste than it is to pay the medical bills if he gets sick from human toothpaste, which can make him quite ill.
It is also less expensive to brush regularly than to pay to have them cleaned. Trust me, I know from experience.
My dog, who would eat anything, would not let me brush his teeth. He refused. He would clamp his jaw shut and growl. If I persisted, thinking I could at least brush the outer surfaces, he would fight every moment, shake his head, pull backwards. It was a trial for both of us. At the vet's, he would be tranquilized, teeth thoroughly cleaned and be given back to me a happy camper. However, this process was expensive. On the other hand, it was worth doing this every 4 - 6 months to keep from traumatizing him.
Max was a pound-hound, so I had no idea what he had been through in the year before I rescued him. I tried to introduce him to the process gently, using many of the suggestions presented by other posters. Some dogs just don't want anyone messing with their mouth. Even with liver or peanut butter flavored toothpaste. BTW - after my using those two flavors on him, he began refusing to eat anything that had a liver or peanut butter flavor.
Some dogs . . . but he was the greatest pet I ever had, and I miss him every day.
Nov 14th 2010 7:09AM Krazy, that is the first thing that came to my mind, also. The second was, they do not let women in high heels walk across a basketball court but they allow donkeys? The third thing, the donkeys were acting like donkeys, the humans were acting like a$$es!
I had never heard of "donkey basketball" until I read this article. I don't care for it and do not think it is funny. Although I am not a fan of PETA, they may have a valid issue here. Animals should never be forced to perform for the entertainment of humans.
