So.... I don't want to jinx it by posting on FB just yet, but.... Luke is potty trained!!!!! YAY!!!!
Yay!!! - Anne Bouey
For the last few months I could tell it was just laziness on his part, but since Portland he's been wearing training pants with cute puppies on them that he does NOT want to soil. That, plus being homebound for a week and me making him use the potty every hour, has sealed the deal!!! - Yvonne Renee
Woohoo!!!!! That's awesome! I planning on kicking it up a notch with Emily once warmer weather sets in. I'll be taking her shopping for undies ^_^ - Melly - #TeamMarina
Warmer weather DEFINITELY made a difference. He either walked around in just training pants or naked when we were hanging out at the hotel in Portland and he really didn't want to pee on the floor... (thank goodness for that!) - Yvonne Renee
Hooray! (Sorry to be late.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Welcome home Stephen! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

That awkward moment in WWF when you play the word "poof" then remember your opponent is gay.
Poof is not thought of in this manner for me. Is this an Australian thing? - Janet from FFHound!
I've seen it used that way in British TV shows, but I've never heard it used that way in an American context. - John (bird whisperer)
Aussie and British. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!

I'm sure the juice would have more nutritional value, but it's still an eye opener. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Gee, a container of orange juice--with zero added sugar--has a lot of fruit sugar! And a fruit/vegetable drink has a lot of fruit and vegetable sugar! The article conflates two very different things: added sugar and sugars in fruits/vegetables/etc.. - Walt Crawford
True Walt, though according to Lustig, the body deals with the sugar in whole fruit and the sugar in juiced fruit very differently. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!

Peter, Paul, and Mary - Greg GuitarBuster
First without my parents was Funk on the Green, Parliament Funkadelic, One Way, Bootsy Collins...1978. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Depends on how you define "concert". Does this include the local band who plays in a bar? A show at a county fair that you see with fair admission, but you don't really care about the band? Where you pay to actually see the band? - Joe
My dad took me and a friend to see Styx on the Mr. Roboto tour. \m/ - Steele Lawman

Have you, or anyone you know, ever regretted getting a dog? My husband seems convinced that it's too much money and too much stress and too much responsibility. I said that it's more love and more energy and more reasons to get out of the house to exercise. He suggested getting a smaller cage animal, but to me it's not the same thing.
Short answer, yes. Some weren't prepared for the work, or had an especially difficult dog, or resented that they were stuck with all of the responsibility. (Agreed, though, that a different type of caged animal isn't really a substitute.) - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Thanks, Jennifer. It's true I hadn't considered that we could end up with a difficult dog. I was HOPING that if we adopted from the animal shelter we'd know some of the animal's short-comings beforehand, but they could also get sick. I really hope he comes around on this one. I don't think my life would be complete without a dog. We had 2 when I was growing up so I'm not going into this blindly, but he seems terrified. - Yvonne Renee
Gypsie (Siberian Husky) was a LOT of work, a lot more than I'd imagined. I'd never brought up a dog from puppyhood before, just had our childhood dog who was older than me, and then a foster dog who was already a few years old when she came into my care. A lot of times I thought "WHAT HAVE WE GOTTEN OURSELVES INTO??!!!" But she was totally worth all the angst :o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Melly, I'm terrified of raising a puppy my first go at this. I JUST got done potty training my child! Lol! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

Duncan's ultrasound is this morning. We've already been warned that there is no fix for anything they might find in his liver and care going forward would be palliative but if you've got a spare 'good doggy' thought we'd still appreciate it.
Absolutely xxxx - Melly - #TeamMarina
Good luck. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
Definitely! - L to tha B from Android
Poor dude, he wants no part of this...fought them all the way down the hall - Shannon - GlassMistress from iPhone
Throwing all my good doggie thoughts to Duncan. - Kevin Johnson from Android
It took several peanutbutter treats but he lived. The vet cant see anything in his liver, and its size is good, so the next step is two weeks of meds and a new blood test. Its still a mystery but at least it does not seem to be immediatly dire. Thanks for the good thoughts! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Still keeping him in healing thoughts. - Janet from FFHound!
Yay for Not the Liver. - Betsy
I'm glad that it isn't the liver but hope they can figure out what's going on soon so he can feel better. - vicster: full-bodied
Poor puppy! Glad they've ruled out the liver, but I hope he's feeling better soon! - Yvonne Renee
So glad they were able to rule that out, but hope they get you good answers soon. - Jennifer Dittrich
It is still a liver problem, one of the enzymes in his liver should be at 20 and was over 470. We just ruled out a mass in the liver but still have no clue why the readings are so far off. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Poor muffin. - L to tha B from Android

I-44 in Oklahoma City is closed for the next several hours due to an accident. A semi overturned and spilled its load. Which was live lobsters. After the incident last year where a truck lost hundreds of gallons of maple syrup, I wonder what will be next.

How do you work with someone for 6 years and not know how to say their name correctly? Also, why is Yvonne (EE-von) so hard for some people to say? ::grumble::
*fist bump* - Corinne L
Wow, rude. Like how hard is it to just listen and learn? I'll never understand that. - Jennifer Dittrich
On the other hand...why aren't I more assertive??? - YvonneM
A guy I worked with for 15 years still doesn't know my last name. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
There are a LOT of people where I work whose names I do not know. Some who have told me their names, I can't remember. It takes a while to sink in for me. Non-English sounding names are the ones I have the most difficulty with. - Ian May
Ian, that helps. I work in a small-ish library and most of us interact pretty regularly, but hey. - YvonneM
My sister-in-law is from New Jersey and her name is Yvonne. Everyone there pronounces her name "Ya-von." It might have to do with their accent. Yet when I ask her and say "ee-VON," she says I'm saying it correctly. LOL. - Trish R
My mom had a childhood friend called (phonetically) Wy-vo-na. The girl's mother had read the name in a book and that's how she thought it was pronounced. Spelled "Yvonne" of course. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I had a friend tell me, after 2 years, that I'd been mispronouncing her name. Talk about awkward. - YvonneM

There are birds here with that swooping behavior during nesting season, I forget what kind of bird but there was a big problem with them by San Francisco city hall, used to be reports on the news about it every year.

My child would be difficult. He's been invited to a super hero birthday party. He wants to go as Clay Face.
Technically he's a villain, yeah? - Melly - #TeamMarina
Yes, but I guess someone has to play the part! If he wants to go as someone rubbery, he could go as Reed Richards (of the Fantastic Four) or PlasticMan. - Spidra Webster
Well... Basil Karlo (the first Clay Face) isn't a "good" person. After getting back into comics and combining it with my knowledge of the world, I have come to realise that the simple Hero vs Villian 2D view misses the subtlety of the stories. Without going too deep, each villain in Batman is a reflection of Batman. Joker is the mirror of Batman without order, Two Face represents the... more... - Johnny
Anyway, playing the villain is cooler than the hero. Superman is a boring boy scout, Lex has the fun. Batman is tortured, Joker does the torturing etc. Kudos to him for picking the less travelled path! - Johnny
