Nerves as Frayed as the Sofa? Call Your Own Dog Whisperer.  Rescue animals often have serious issues that rescue advocates, once they’ve cleared you (and your home) for adoption, will all too readily gloss over.  Anything to save the animal from the cremation oven.  In my brief experiences with attempting to adopt a rescue animal here in NM, many have issues with men specifically ― men having been the more violent of the behavior-enforcers.  If you’ve got the time to help one out, bless you.  If you don’t ... go to a reputable breeder.

Hunch delivers in mail-theft case.  Those charge-card checks you get in the mail are a huge risk to your financial health.  Many are turning to PO boxes, it seems, as a preventative.  You can get locking rural mailboxes; in fact, I think I may purchase one of these models, now that I’ve read this article.

Cockfighting no longer a laughing matter.  I wonder at the fact there’s not a peep about the risks of H5N1 bird flu in association with this issue.

Here’s what we’ve got ... again:

 


more snow.


Leftovers from the pre-Xmas huge snow in the foreground.  Along with my dead century-plant-in-a-pot.

Probably 6-8 inches, total.

So little linkage until I’m done shovelling.

Here we go again.

Another four inches already, and it’s not even nine o’clock yet.  Supposed to snow all night.

Congressional committee scrutinizes LANL security.  “Fed-up lawmakers on a House oversight committee said Tuesday they want to strip a federal nuclear agency of its security responsibilities and threatened to shut down Los Alamos National Laboratory to correct a decade of security lapses there.”  This was the dominating item on the local news last evening, and it’s scared the bejesus out of northern NM. LANL is the major employer for the area, Los Alamos city would become a ghost town if it closed.  Our congresspersons will put up an incredible fight over this.
