    When my daughter was young she went camping and took her dog with her, a J.R. Cross, not very big. During the night one of the girls in the tent kept kicking my daughter to get her to stop snoring....only it wasn't her it was Lizzy. Our new J.R. Is Nikki. She is two years old and about the same size as our Shiatzu. She crawls under the covers at night, braces her back against me and pushes her self against my back with all four feet. She likes to press the flesh. I wake up in the middle of the night on the verge of being shoved off the edge. Aside from that it's kind of nice. She is a good little heater. We have a Calif. King and it often has two humans, two J.R.s a Shiatsu and a cat on it. As you can probably tell there is not much passion in the night between my wife and I. When you are over 70 sex is overrated anyway. (I know. There are always those naysayers who will say speak for yourself.) Your pets are like your children and there is much comfort from them. That's not ever overrated.

    A farmer in church this morning asked us to pray for rain so that the farmers would have abundant crops. Afterwards I told him, "Yeah, pray for rain so that you can have abundant crops of alfalfa that you sell to your brother Chrisitians for $200 a ton. What I am going to pray for is your salvation.

    Fish oil can interact with Warfarin and affect your coagulation rate. Also, so does just about any vegetable that is good for you and tastes good. Joyce and I took a late afternoon drive through ranch country today since it is too icy to do anything with the horses. She is taking a photography class and we spent the afternoon playing with the settings on the digital camera. It was a beautiful day and the sky was full of geese. What fun we had. It is early for geese to be here. Maybe it bodes well for an early spring. Speaking of geese do yo uknow how to identify a Canadian goose. They go HONK Ay. The snow is not so bad but we are tired of the ice. Joyce slipped and fell and broke her wrist three years ago. The flarking medical bills were $14,000. She had good insurance but the copay was still $1500, just about what it should have cost to set the break. Hey, you people in Canada, our radical conservatives are always trying to scare the rest of us with horror stories about the Canadian medical system and how bad it is; how you have to go on a waiting list and wait a year for a surgery etc. What is it really like up there?

    My daughter's arena is thawed out. Maybe I will trailer the horses over there if I can figure out how to turn the trailer around when I get back home.

    About the pitbull killing horse. I would like to buy that horse. My neighbor has a pitbull that is so mean that we can't ride down the road.
    Got to have a horse that's brought up in the bush and used for pig hunting They get real wise. You will notice from my photos our horses used for trekking are heavy built Stella being the exception she is not only big boned she is fat. At plus 40 I can do the splits thanks to her.

    The alternative is a .22 with a silencer one shot. Or never wrong ant bait I don't like disposing of animals but some are better stuffed. We still have laws that allow a horse right of way dating back 150 years before cars and it has never been repealed. Dogs on the steet have no rights and have to be on a leash at all times and under control

    I have been messing around with my meds trying to reduce now for several months I have a heart monitor and every time I stick it on to check Roslyn walks past, up goes the pressure and 100 beats a minute in a flash. I think she is trying to dispose of me.

    Try the medical system in NZ we wait and wait and wait. My doctor asked my why I want blood tests every three months, my responce was ruther direct. I started work officially at the age of fifteen and have payed huge amounts of tax, a propotion of which is for the health system. I have never been unemployed and worked for myself for the most part. We have folks coming into this country from Africa and need specialist medical equipment. Never paid tax here let alone work, recieve a benefit and jump the medical queue. She has never asked me again. It is my responsibility to maintain good health so don't get in the way because I have paid for it.

    I have no problem helping those in need provided they are trying to help themselves.

    And while I am on the band wagon we have a welfare system that reqards having children out of marrage as a good little earner. Married man 4 children and a wife recieves far less that a single girl with 4 children. I think the first child may be a mistake. But number 2 to 4 one would have thought a lesson would have been learnt. So number 1, I will help through tax to support that child and educate it. But no extra from 2 through to 4 that may teach the lesson that the younger generation have not learnt and that is the word NO.

    Here in Aust. We have 'medicare' which needs a good overhaul. If you are an old age pensioner,single parent on benefits , unemployed or on a disability or sickness pension doctors visits are free. Everyone else who goes to their local doctor gets a part refund from medicare. If you need to see a specialist everyone gets a part refund from medicare. If you need to have general surgery you have togo on a waiting list, and sometimes you have to wait between 3 months up to 2 years,depending on the urgency. If you have cancer or a life threatining illness they will operate and treat you straight away. I, like some people have 'private cover' which means if I need to have any surgery I will be operated on straight away, but it isn't cheap.But I have it for peace of mind. TC my hubbie, is a 'gold card veteran' which means he gets full cover paid by the government with no waiting time.

    I agree with you Stan on the subject of single parents having lots of kids. A few years ago our Prime Minister introduced a 'baby bonus payment' to help parents pay for their baby needs, well a lot of young girls thought great, now I can go out and get pregnant spend it all on new clothes etc for myself, or buy that big flat screen TV. Too bad for the baby, and then the poor taxpayers have to pay to raise the kids. The payment was around $4000, ithas been reduced now and givenout in smaller amounts fortnightly. Aren't governments so clever!!!
