Holiday weekend good news roundup, part II, with dogs

Sunday, December 23rd, 2012

My Ava would do this:

Border collies are supposed to be geniuses of the dog world. But they can be so OCD about toss-and-fetch that they lose all touch with reality. In fact, I’d say that “out of touch with reality” is Ava’s permanent state. The pooch above must be one of Ava’s close relatives on her BC side.

    “I think we all know intuitively that getting out into nature lifts our mood and enhances creativity.”

    Which may explain wy Ayn Rand — a Hollywood screenwriter turned New York author — wanted to pave over every bit of nature.

  2. Water Lily Says:

    Thanks for the links. Made my morning.

    Well, I’m envious of that sort of creativity. Or maybe the sense of whimsy that inspires it.

    Here’s another fun one:

    which would be funnier in Marvin the Martian colors.

    My good news for the weekend, so far, was finding the YHM-9394-H front sight for a decent price.

    Congratulations on getting one of your SWAT articles on-line. I’ve often wondered why they don’t do that more often. Far as I’m concerned, Enemy at the Gates is the only reason I’d read the mag.

    Stupid wrong button. Where was I before I was so rudely interrupted?

    Ah, yes. Though in fairness the publishers keep promising to slant their content more to preparedness and less to “monopoly on legitimate violence,” with lots of cool guns and gear only the Only Ones are allowed to fondle, I haven’t seen a lot of it yet.

    When I was working at the Whole Earth Catalog some 35 years ago, we published a review of a little booklet called “The Manly Art of Knitting”. Had a photo of a cowboy on a horse on the cover… knitting, of course. I still have the booklet somewhere. Never learned to knit, though. Never been much for the Manly Arts…

    I’d bet that nature has more benefits for people than just those few things, but I’m a bit biased (screen name is also my nickname irl)…..too bad so many have abandoned it for “inside things”……

  8. EN Says:

    Excellent article in SWAT. Surprised they published it.

  9. Karen Says:

    Excellent SWAT article, Claire! I especially like the line “And how do you like “gun ownership—a precursor to gun violence”?
    Breathing, a precursor to disease.
    Aging, a precursor to death.
    Everything, a precursor to something.
    etc

    Funny about all the J names. I thought it was just me.
