Kids here still have recess. And things to climb on, and swings and slides. They are well supervised, and games like "chase" aren't allowed, but that was what the parents wanted (too many smaller kids getting caught and clobbered by the bigger kids), but they still have outdoor play periods. ETA: Ho...

I checked AMC's schedule for the show, and saw that they are running a marathon of the show on Sunday, May 1st, starting at 8:30 am Eastern. I may have to wait until then to get caught up on this show. But at least that's possible! :)

I don't care for this, either. Having worked in the public schools, I can understand where this principal is coming from (some people don't know they first thing about proper nutrition), but this is going way too far. School lunches, in my experience, are not as nutritious as what many parents prepa...

They re-aired the pilot episodes last night along with the new episode, so I recorded it all, but today my DVR *died,* so I've lost it. Dammit! They do have the pilot up at AMC, though - or at least they did. Maybe they'll have this newest episode up, too. I don't like watching things on the compute...

Wonderful puppy, Joolz. Happy for you! ;) Thanks, Linnea! :) Today we bought everything we need to fence off the pool and veggie garden area so she can't get in there. I've spent the afternoon raking and using the shop vac to get up all the sticks and leaves and old pecan shells dropped by the squi...

When he was a wee pup he would bark when playing with us and poke at us with his little paws, so we called him Mr. Barkley Paws. :) My other little guy is nicknamed King Of The Couch. Mr. Barkley Paws! :D That's so cute! What...
