Why do dogs bark?

Spot loves to bark at the kids passing by his gate, this happens frequently since the gate is close to the street:(

Sometime I go outside to see if anyone if out there, most of the time I see the kids but once in a while there is no one.

http://www.dogproblemsolutions.com/why_do_dogs_bark.php

"Why do dogs bark at nothing? They don't. It may seem like there is no reason for the barking behavior, but that is not always the case. When you feel that your dog is barking for no reason, start to consider the possibilities. Are they hurt, hungry, ready to go for a walk or have them spotted someone outside your home? We may not notice some of these smaller things going on around us, but your dog will. If your dog is barking at the walls or at something non-existent, there my even by a psychological or health reason for the barking, so you may even want to have your dog checked out by the vet. "

Done


I bought the last Christmas present yesterday! All presents are now wrapped and under the tree.

Dancing to the Americana

If you listen closely the boys are really dancing to music, everyone talking gets in the way.

Sandi wanted Jacob to dance for some pre Thanksgiving dinner entertainment and of course his older brother had to get in on the action. Jordan is such a ham.

Pumpkin cheesecake


For Thanksgiving I have to bring two pumkin pies from Costco. Yes, I was told they have to be from there. One reason is because they are delicious and another is because they are big enough for everyone to have a piece if they want one. Last year I found a pumpkin cheesecake at Fresh and Easy, it was so good I wanted to get another one this year. I found pumpkin cheesecake at Costco for $12.99 but ended up not getting one because each slice is around 460 calories. It sure does look good.

The Next Three Days

I went to a screening of this movie last night. I really enjoyed the movie, maybe it was because the last movie I saw the American was so bad but I don't think so. I would recommend this suspense movie. I have not found good reviews from the critics but oh well I liked it anyway. Russell Crowe has the star role.

Pets helping People

Panacea Wellness Village's mission is to heal pets and people.
Their values are:
"Charity
Dignity
Stewardship
Loyalty & Humor...
...because life is just too short without it."
Jon Provost who played Timmy on Lassie is the spokesperson. There is a fundraising event being held tonight in Scottsdale. I love the idea of bringing animals together to help heal people. These animals are sometimes very ill and need to be nursed back to health, when they get better they in turn return the love people gave them and help others feel better.

Fisher House

This is a great site, I heard about it on the radio on the drive home tonight.

http://www.fisherhouse.org/about/index.html

"In 1990, Mr. and Mrs. Fisher began the Fisher House program, dedicating more than $20 million to the construction of comfort homes for families of hospitalized military personnel. Twenty-nine Fisher Houses now operate at 17 military bases and at five Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers throughout the nation. More than 183,000 days of lodging are provided by Fisher Houses every year, saving families an estimated $5 million annually. Since the program's inception, more than 50,000 families have stayed in Fisher Houses."

House Hunters International

I love this show. While watching it last night one of the requirements for the house was a bomb shelter. The show was being filmed in Israel that episode. I am grateful to live in the United States! Thank you to everyone in the armed forces and all the veterans!

What to do in Phx?

I found a couple of sites I like that show upcoming events(some free, some you can buy tickets for) in Phoenix. One of the sites is eventful.com and the other is azcentral.com. The Tempe Arts Festival is Dec 3-5, this is free to everyone. I have not been for a few years, it would be fun to go and see the arts and crafts on display.

Wii Fit Plus

I would like this for Christmas. I might just buy it for myself as an early gift:)

Has anyone used Bidfun.com? When I searched for the Wii Fit Plus this site came up to bid on the product, it is currently at .22. You can buy a minimum of 20 bids for $1 each and then start bidding.

Snoopy in a Box

Who knew Home Depot would have Peanuts Christmas items? I went to there to pick up metal bits for a drill and a screw extractor. I have not only one but two stripped screws in a door knob that I cannot get out. Unfortunately this did not work! The trip was not a loss because look at the cute thing I found.

Pea Coat or Prep Coat


Old Navy has an ad on tv for Prep Coats. When did the name of this coat change from pea coat to prep coat? Old Navy has these on sale for $29 in different colors if you need a coat where you live.
