    Pure evil here – I hope that the piece of filth who put these poor puppies through this ordeal is caught and punished greatly.
    On the brighter side though, I hope these two little ones are adopted into a loving home together. Look at those faces….and the one putting her arm around the other!
    Did the other guy find his own dog?

    Yes – there’s the bright side! The Mets just seems to lose steam and coordination when it mattered – if only they could have played all series like they did in Game 3.

    Hi CatB – I’m sorry that you have found New Yorkers to be some of the rudest people you have come in contact with. With all due (and sincere) respect, I promise you there are many more of us that are not so rude. I’d like to think that you simply came into contact with the folks that don’t represent us in a good light – perhaps transplanted wannabes who think being rude is the way to be here? Perhaps those who have never felt the need to be pleasant? I don’t know. However, CitiField is probably one of the places where you’d have a good time here – OK, the neighborhood isn’t the best nearby, BUT when I went there recently I felt that I was surrounded by a great crowd of people just having a good time, and many with families. There’s truly nothing quite like a good Mets crowd – even over the radio you could hear the electricity with those cheers. I wish this series had turned out better for the Mets – it would have been spectacular to see them come back and win this one, and see orange and blue lining streets in the city for the parade.

    I hope that any more New Yorkers you meet are not as rude, and if you should pay us a visit, you enjoy your stay =). Oh, and if it ends up being Mets vs. Yankees next year…root for the Mets – we, their fans, are nicer and definitely more loyal =D =D =D!

    This was sad =(. It was nice to finally have the Mets get to the playoffs and see the Yankees left in the dust for a change, and this still happened. It was like 15 years ago in a way – Mets down 3 games to 1, and the World Series win goes to the other team on the Mets home field…again =(.

    Well, at least the Islanders have started up again and hopefully the Mets will do well again next year! It could have been a better World Series overall, but still, at least the Mets got there and have made significant progress – looking forward to next season.

    Wow – right whales! Those are considered one of the rarest, and to come upon two of them in a setting like that must have been golden. I’d love to be able to have an experience like that one day, but going on whale watching boats in Monterey and Alaska have been excellent starts =).

    …or in Iowa.

    I was at CitiField for tonight’s Mets vs. Braves game – there was a very nice moment of silence before the game and later a video tribute. The Mets ended up losing after doing well for most of the game, but the words “It ain’t over ’til it’s over” summed the experience all up. Yogi’s conversations with God must be quite interesting right now!

    When I was in my teens in the late ’90s/early 2000s classic country was what I preferred to the modern stuff, even though it was still good at that time with recognizable songs and singers. Finding the classics on the radio on road trips before online streaming was a novelty, and I still remember watching TNN every Saturday evening for the Grand Ole Opry and Statler Brothers Show. Good stuff.

    Trying to answer without looking it up – is it George Strait? I remember hearing that he had the most #1′s of any artist in any genre.

  • [6] September 5, 2015 at 12:44am

    Agreed, Merle – I sometimes listen to Nash 94.7 here, and while they occasionally play some good stuff, most of it sounds the same to me. Hearing rap-style-tinged country is particularly irritating, especially when it’s ALL about drinking, pick-up trucks, driving to a river or along a dirt road with the windows rolled down and the radio on, boots, torn-off jeans, and feeling the need to proclaim how “coun-tray” the girl or guy in the song is. It’s way too predictable. To make it worse, all of these “singers” sound like each other, and nobody puts out anything memorable enough to make you remember their names. To think that about 15 years ago Alan Jackson and George Strait recorded that song “Murder on Music Row” talking about the loss of the country sound – even at that time it wasn’t as dreadful as it is now. Oy vey.

    Thank goodness for the ability to find classic country and even ’90s country online.

    Oh my gosh…I just want to give that dog a great big hug. Figo and his owner are very lucky to have each other to have such a strong bond – wishing both a speedy recovery!

  • June 10, 2015 at 7:13pm

    Ugh…please don’t even compare the two! But I’d take the pudu any day.

    Adorable! The Queens Zoo, one of 5 WCS parks in NYC (the Bronx Zoo is the flagship zoo), is fairly small but it’s a lovely place to take a walk through and it provides a great opportunity to see North and South American wildlife. Time to visit again to see this little dude!

    Congratulations to American Pharaoh! I hope he has broken the curse of not winning that Triple Crown – 37 years is way too long.

    Most importantly, at least all of those magnificent horses finished safely and I hope they are enjoying some good food and relaxation tonight =).

    As I tell my students, if they have absolutely no idea what an answer is on a quiz, either take a guess or make me laugh – often with humorous results. My family and I were actually eating dinner while watching this, and one of us jokingly said that “Kinky Boots” would be the answer lol! If it were me, I’d probably have written “Fiddler on the Roof.”

    God has blessed us all with a sense of humor – if life gives you lemons (like a question you don’t know the answer to), make lemonade and give us something sweet (and humorous) to smile about. Thank you Choyon for the laugh. =)

    That’s so cute! Yes, they can be trained. I never really had the time to train mine to do tricks, but it is possible to teach them – YouTube is loaded with videos showing this!

    Here’s one – the clicking sound you hear frequently is just a signal to the rat that she did something correctly. Enjoy!

  • [2] May 13, 2015 at 1:40pm

    I loved my two rats, and it was heartbreaking when they passed. I would jokingly call those 2 girls Felix and Oscar – one could be a playful slob, while the other was the disciplinarian, protector, and housekeeper. They were rather timid when I first brought them home, but with frequent handling they came to sit on my shoulder or my neck while making a gentle grinding sound to show relaxation and content. They were quite entertaining, bringing moments of joy to the entire family with their antics =).

  • [1] May 13, 2015 at 1:26pm

    Very true!

    Just a quick story – I had the pleasure of briefly meeting Carroll Spinney at the end of the 2010 NY Comic Con. He was getting his things together as my siblings and I were passing on the way out of the show floor. My brother recognized him first, and then my sister and I confirmed. Being to nervous to ask myself, I begged my brother to go and ask for a picture, which he calmly did, and Mr. Spinney immediately obliged! When we lined up for the picture, he even happily said “Let me get in the middle” and shuffled to where he wanted to be. Upon my telling him that Big Bird was my favorite Muppet, he said “Thank you very much!” in Big Bird’s voice. Joy!

    Meeting him for about a minute and hearing him do the voice brought such joy to us that evening. I can only imagine the magnitude of joy that Joey felt while talking Big Bird, the big guy himself, for about 10 minutes, and what his parents saw in Joey’s face during and after that conversation. Big Bird and Mr. Spinney do indeed have the ability to help sweep those clouds away and make the day a bit sunnier.

    I can’t even begin to imagine the pain that this poor man is experiencing, and what the mother and their daughter might still have to face realizing if they recover. Let’s all pray that this family will somehow be able to live on as best they can, and that there will be happiness someday for them and more life to look forward to.
