Saw my girl Katana doing this kind of maneuver with her neck arched over the table to reach the butter on the other side...


None of her feet actually touched the table, so the letter of the law was carried out.

She was a very precisely obedient dog.

A Millennial Job Interview - real Funny
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uo0KjdDJr1c

BEST SPEECH EVER - Simon Sinek on Millennials in the Workplace | SO INSPIRING!
- Simon Sinek speaking about Millennials in the workplace of today, and social media addiction
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=As8XkJNaHbs

PS
I remember taking our son out for lunch (to Boston Pizza), when he was in College / ~20 y/o.
- we just ordered draft micro beers, and his cell phone came out of his pocket / an attention grabber
- with eyes on his phone, Dad said:
"put your cell away, or we are going home, without eating / I enjoy our conversations"
- and it worked...haha...to this day
- my one-on-one time with our son, is still my most prized procession, in life
- I won't dance around cell phone distractions / this was made loud & clear

So I'm at a Xmas party a month ago, chatting to a young women / close friend of my nephew.
10 seconds later, her eyes are wondering around the entire room...and nobody is home, so to speak.
- B67 said, "you want to give me your undivided attention & eye focus contact, for 30 seconds"?
- "I know its hard to hold a normal conversation, when your trying to trade up in life"...
^^ Everyone including the young lady, got a solid message & a good laugh.
- soon Beau ended the insignificant chat, and walked off / NOT worth my Time !!

------------Kelly & (Amy - RIP @ 11.7 y/o)

Beau & Kelly woke up, to 2" of snow / will be getting out the 318 Garden Tractor today, to blow snow.
- Kel had a quick pee, and scooted back inside the house
- 100 miles North, Twin is driving to work, in a partial white out (blowing snow, across roads)
^^ For our American friends, its very cold here.

51 and sunny here too. Supposed to get up to 62 today. It’s been a dang warm fall with almost no snow. Which sounds great, I’m sure...but Colorado needs all the moisture it can get (normal yearly precipitation here in the Springs only 18 inches or so)

Searching for another thread and ran across this. I thought since so many of you folks are guys but older (Iím being polite here...I could think of other ways to describe you but have to stay within forum rules), you might need to brush-up on what you already should know.

NINE WORDS WOMEN USE

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing..)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . That will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

My favorite expression along the same passive aggressive euphemisms similar to 1-8 is:

OH WELL... which, of course really means "Who give a rats a**"

The first time I took notice of this phrase was about 20 years ago when my niece responded to a cousin of hers about not being allowed to serve in a volleyball game. She didn't say: Its because you suck. Or, nobody wants you on the team anyway. She simply took a different route.

Oh for my illiterate buddy Denny:

euphemism |ˈyo͞ofəˌmizəm|
noun
a mild or indirect word or expression substituted for one considered to be too harsh or blunt when referring to something unpleasant or embarrassing: “downsizing” as a euphemism for cuts. The opposite of dysphemism.

SSSTJ! *(STOP STOP STOP That Johnny!

Speaking of trucks, I made it to work today, but decided, nah! Tire rotation, oil change and a cut and color on my hair seemed more important!

It's going to make it to 50 degrees today. Guess I need to turn my propane wall heater on! What the heck! It's MY propane, so, "whatever"!

I am so sad when I have to put my shorts and tank tops away.

How Do the Wettest Cities in the USA Compare to Rainy London, Ontario?

London is a popular destination that may be as known for its dreary, rainy weather as it is for its history dating back to Roman times. London is a destination that many travelers have on their must-see list, whether you're going to follow in the footsteps of the Queen, Harry Potter, or Sherlock Holmes; or want to get up close and personal with sight-seeing hotspots such as the London Bridge, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben.

However, many tourists may expect to spend most of their London trips inside, because London is thought to be one of the rainiest cities in the world.

The question is: Is London really as rainy as common travel lore would have you believe? The answer might not be what you think. We're sizing up London's rainy competition in the USA and comparing some of the rainiest cities in the world.

According to climate data for London, the city averages 22.976 inches (583.6 millimeters) of precipitation per year. Compare that to precipitation in major U.S. cities and London doesn't even make the top 15 rainiest cities. Even New York City is rainier than London, with an average of 49.9 inches of rain per year. In fact, when it comes to cities, the six rainiest big cities in the United States average more than 50 inches per year and are:

- New Orleans, Louisiana, the city with the most precipitation in the U.S., gets on average of 62.7 inches of rain per year.
- Miami, Florida (yes, even sunny Miami gets more rain than London!)
- Birmingham, Alabama
- Memphis, Tennessee
- Jacksonville, Florida
- Orlando, Florida (No one calls Orlando "Rainy Orlando", but it gets a lot more rain that London does.)

The rainiest place in the USA is Mt. Waialeale on Kauai in Hawaii, which gets approximately 460 inches (11,684 millimeters) of rain each year.

That's quite a bit more than London!

Your a genius!

So, in the ever constant attempt to expand my pal Denny's vocabulary,

For Denises perusal:

Luddite
noun
a member of any of the bands of English workers who destroyed machinery, especially in cotton and woolen mills, that they believed was threatening their jobs (1811Ė16).
ē a person opposed to increased industrialization or new technology: a small-minded Luddite resisting progress.

(The second definition) ^^^^

JLL!

Oh... Jean is "John" in French and Le is "The".

Hang around with me for a while Denny and you might be a PHD candidate!

Do you have any rain to spare for California?

Colorado and Oklahoma could use some, as well.

Lower Texas got a tiny taste.

Man! I foresee hay prices rising.
