TIL (today I learned) a new phrase from this article in the Times about a showdown between a McDonald's in Queens and a group of elderly Korean patrons: naturally occurring retirement community (NORC).
The demographic term "NORC" was first coined in the 1980s by Michael Hunt, a professor of urban planning at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Interestingly, and perhaps surprisingly in an age where government funding of any social program is greeted with derision, NORCs are eligible for funding at local, state, and federal levels to provide support for services for the elderly. What counts as a "sizeable elderly population" varies from place to place (and from one level of government to the next), but NORCs are important because once a community meets the respective criteria, it becomes eligible for local, state, and federal funds retroactively to provide that community with the support services elderly populations typically need.
Not only are they delicious (when made right, and we'll get to that), but they practically create their own conversation. To go along with his wind map of the Earth, Cameron Beccario has made a world map of global ocean currents with data that updates every five days or so.
From Star Wars to Life of Pi, this is a video compilation of clips from every movie that's won the Best Visual Effects Oscar since the introduction of the award in 1977. On Daring Fireball, John Gruber reflects on the 30th anniversary of the Macintosh by noting what seems particularly Apple-like about the Mac. The second aspect of the original Mac that stands out today as Apple-like is putting just enough whimsy into the experience. In 1976, legendary cosmologist and astronomer Carl Sagan tried to recruit a 17-year-old Neil deGrasse Tyson to Cornell University. The Viking Missions referred to in the letter were the two probes sent to Mars in the mid-1970s.
Tyson occupies a role in today's society similar to Sagan's in the 1980s as an unofficial public spokesman of the wonderous world of science.
Letter courtesy of The Seth Macfarlane Collection of the Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan Archive at the Library of Congress, which is chock full of great Sagan stuff. A geothermal engineering project in Iceland drilled 1.3 miles into the Earth and unexpectedly hit a pocket of magma. This meant cementing a steel casing into the well, leaving a perforated section at the bottom closest to the magma. The well funnelled superheated, high-pressure steam for months at temperatures of over 450°C -- a world record.
In an interview with an Australian radio station, Arcade Fire's Win Butler said that the music on the Her movie soundtrack will see an official release in some form. Each February I experience the unrestrained joy of attending the ski and snowboard trade show in Denver. We're talking about kids spending the night their schools, commutes a few miles that took more than ten hours, helicopters searching for stranded drivers, and a call to the National Guard for help.
From InFocus, here's a collection of photos that will give you a good idea of what happens when snowstorm hits a population not accustomed to that kind of weather. But if you're making light of the situation, or more realistically using it to reinforce your view of the South and the people in it as full of backwards blubberers, you are an asshole. When it snows where you live, the salt and the snowplows are out on the streets before you even wake up. When it snows where you live, it is the latest in a string of snowfalls that date back centuries. In a short video from The Atlantic, science writer Philip Ball explains why Isaac Newton picked ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) for the colors of the spectrum and not 3 or 6 or even 16 other possible colors.
Newton was the first to demonstrate through his famous prism experiments that color is intrinsic to light. Ball is the author of Bright Earth: Art and the Invention of Color, which looks pretty interesting. In a thread about the newly visible supernova in the M82 galaxy, MetaFilter user Ivan Fyodorovich offered up this plain-English explanation of what happens when a star dies and goes supernova. This time, however, the core of the star is mostly nickel and iron, and they cannot ordinarily be fused into heavier elements, so as the star shrinks and the temperature and density increase, there is no nuclear fusion ignition of the nickel and iron to counteract the contraction.
Mario Wienerroither takes music videos, strips out all the sound, and then foleys back in sound effects based on what people are doing in the video. A "scent solutions" company called Air Aroma made a Macbook Pro unboxing smell for an art exhibition in Melbourne last year. If you haven't been watching the NFL at all this season but are planning on tuning into the Super Bowl, this video by ESPN will prepare you by recapping the entire season in under three minutes.
The discovery has come in the form of fossilized impressions of wood and leaves in the region of Antarctica's Mount Achernar. It is commonly accepted that during the late Permian and early Triassic periods, as much as 250 million years ago, the whole world would have been far hotter than it is today. Sarah Feakins, a biogeochemist from the University of Southern California, posits that the Antarctic coast was once lined with beeches and conifers; based on evidence taken from leaf waxes found in sediment cores extracted from the Ross Ice Shelf. A period of warmer climate around 15 million years ago, known as the Miocene period, could have had areas of the Antarctic resembling the kind of forested tundra seen today in New Zealand or parts of Chile. Update: Here's the answer to the puzzle, presumably by some time traveling super-being from the future. My copy of "Wise, Witty, and Tender Sayings," which I bought a few years ago from a secondhand bookseller, is the tenth edition, from 1896, which gives Main an enviably long time on the back-list. Update: Win Butler of Arcade Fire now says the Her soundtrack will be released in some form eventually. Great post by Nick Carr on Scouting New York comparing the movie locations in The Godfather to what they look like today. Because the film is a period piece, The Godfather actually presents a fascinating record of what 1940s-era New York City locations still existed in the early-1970s. Gothamist uncovered a NYC guide book from the 1920s called Valentine's City of New York: A Guide Book. In an "only Nixon can go to China" moment in physics, Stephen Hawking now says "there are no black holes". Most physicists foolhardy enough to write a paper claiming that "there are no black holes" -- at least not in the sense we usually imagine -- would probably be dismissed as cranks.
In its stead, Hawking's radical proposal is a much more benign "apparent horizon", which only temporarily holds matter and energy prisoner before eventually releasing them, albeit in a more garbled form. Spoiler alert: people have been saying "spoiler alert" since the early 80s but it became a popular term only relatively recently. Despite his dislike of the term, Seitz said he wrestles with the concept professionally and vividly remembers his first spoiler experience. This oral history of Swingers over at Grantland got a little long for me (but if you're a fan, you should definitely read the whole thing), but there are good bits throughout. Wurmfeld: I cultivated a lot of relationships with the people around town selling short ends. Liman: The problem with shooting on short ends, though, is that it takes four minutes to reload a conventional camera.
Ludwig: The camera was much louder than a regular camera that you'd use for a feature film. Liman: To absorb the sound, I would take my down jacket and put it over the camera and then take the two arms and tie them together underneath the lens. Liman: Every day we'd panic because I was shooting more film than I thought I was gonna shoot and we didn't have enough film and we didn't have any money. The first installment was a classic, but this second video of NFL players and coaches overdubbed with alternate dialogue is pretty great as well. Incredible that the Mac is still around; the 90s were a dire time for Apple and it's amazing to see the current fantastic iMacs and Macbooks that came after some epically bad mid-90s machines. If you have had any prior experience with personal computers, what you might expect to see is some sort of opaque code, called a "prompt," consisting of phosphorescent green or white letters on a murky background. Levy has also appended a never-seen-before transcript of his interview with Steve Jobs onto the Kindle version of Insanely Great, a book Levy wrote about the Mac.
What's clear when you talk to Apple's executives is that the company believes that people don't have to choose between a laptop, a tablet, and a smartphone.
As always, Folklore.org is an amazing source for stories about the Mac told by the folks who were there. Susan Kare designed the icons, the interface elements, and fonts for the original Macintosh. Stephen Fry recounts his experience with the Mac, including the little tidbit that he and Douglas Adams bought the first two Macs in Europe (as far as he knows).
I like to claim that I bought the second Macintosh computer ever sold in Europe in that January, 30 years ago. The Next Web has an interview with Daniel Kottke (no relation) and Randy Wigginton on programming the original Mac. TNW: When you look at today's Macs, as well as the iPhone and the iPad, do you see how it traces back to that original genesis? Randy: It was more of a philosophy - let's bring the theoretical into now - and the focus was on the user, not on the programmer. Here, it was all about the user, and the programmers had to work their asses off to make it easy for the user to do what they wanted.
Like Daniel says, it's definitely the case that there were academic and business places with similar technology, but they had never attempted to reach a mass market. A week after Jobs unveiled the Mac at the Apple shareholders meeting, he did the whole thing again at a meeting of the Boston Computer Society. I always forget about Interview magazine but I really shouldn't because a) Warhol and b) they consistently pair interesting people together for interviews. MCQUEEN: You've been on the scene as an artist now for 10 years, which is impressive, given the level of interest and artistry that you've managed to sustain in your work.
A supernova erupted recently1 in galaxy M82, a mere 11.4 million light years away from Earth, which means that it was close enough to be discovered by someone using an ordinary telescope in London and may be visible with binoculars sometime in the next two weeks. M82's proximity means that there are many existing images of it, pre-explosion, including some from the Hubble Space Telescope. We live in a world where it's easier to communicate with another human being than ever before - a world that also places relentless demands on our time and attention. Even with the amazing technology we have in our pockets, we can fly through the day without remember-ing to send a simple "I love you" to the most important person in our lives.
Update: Unsurprisingly, Greg had gotten quite a bit of a negative response to Romantimatic. I played chess with my dad growing up, but actually learning how to play (studying openings, notation, etc.) seemed daunting and at cross purposes with what I liked about the game. Mostly because of jet aircraft, there are very few places in the world free of man-made noise. For the past 30 years, Hempton has made it his mission to discover what he calls the last great quiet places, areas that clock in at audible human noise-free intervals of 15 minutes or more.
Tom Junod writes about Bob Dylan and what we know and don't know about him and what that says about our ability to know anything about anyone.
Bob Dylan is either the most public private man in the world or the most private public one. I hope that by posting this article about anxiety here, I will feel less anxious about having to read it for tips on how to reduce my extremely high levels of current stress and anxiety. Sheryl Canter extensively researched the best way to season a cast iron pan and here is what she recommends you do.
I've read dozens of Web pages on how to season cast iron, and there is no consensus in the advice.
They were now armed with flame throwers, portable machine-guns and grenades fired from rifles. Huge artillery pieces fired with pinpoint accuracy - using only aerial photos and maths they could score a hit on the first shot. While the claim that Mad Men could have driven a nearly 50% (representing an additional 10 billion cigarettes) increase in Lucky Strike sounds like typical advertising puffery, it's hard to pin down another driver. Kathryn Schulz went looking for those rare moments in literature where "punctuation pops its head up over the prose" and found five noteworthy uses.
It was so cold that even inside his cabin, even with the small coal stove, the moisture in his breath condensed into ice on the walls and ceiling. Scientists at the University of Vermont's Proctor Maple Research Center have made an interesting discovery.
They realized that their discovery meant sugarmakers could use saplings, densely planted in open fields, to harvest sap. In a natural forest, which varies in maple density, an average 60 to 100 taps per acre will yield 40 to 50 gallons of syrup.
Artist Dennis Hlynsky films birds in flight and then uses After Effects to make their flight paths visible, like the contrails of high-flying jets. Using nothing more than archival film footage, on-camera interviews, period music, and a narrator's voiceover, the stories of Emmitt Till, the Montgomery bus boycott, and the desegregation of southern schools riveted me to the couch like few viewing experiences have.
Some light weekend reading: the New Yorker's David Remnick checks in on how the Obama Presidency is going, five years in. Barack Obama could not run his campaign for the Presidency based on political accomplishment or on the heroic service of his youth.
Photographer Jeremy Cowart writes about a rare time he made a real connection with one of his celebrity subjects. Once we wrapped up his session, Tika walked off set and John came to me and whispered in my ear "Hey can you sneak a few more portraits of me?" and I said "sure of course".
Bill Murray does the Ask Me Anything thing over at Reddit and I think it's even better than Seinfeld's.
Q: If you could go back in time and have a conversation with one person, who would it be and why?
1.Britta is traveling in an area of Finland that was once Sweden, so many of the people speak Swedish. 1.What did Britta do to make sure the cab driver would drive them back to the hotel after bringing Elsa to the hospital? 9.If a person does something wrong, does it make everything all right to say a€?Ia€™m sorrya€??
6.When Mama came home after Elsaa€™s death, how did she try to console herself and her children? 8.Although Britta didna€™t understand everything the doctor said, she was able to communicate fairly well. 4.The doctor obviously recognizes Britta, and even though he cana€™t come down to steerage, what does he do for her? 5.Why was Britta upset when she realized that Johan didna€™t have to go through the slow line she did? It happened last fall in one of those hotel meeting rooms used for showcases at the Hudson Valley Resort in Kerhonkson, N.Y. While his talent appears genetically acquired, the genes were backed up by hard work and experience.
Dave March was born in Huntington in 1976, and he and his sister Krista grew up in Centereach, where they and Jon all attended Centereach High School. There really werena€™t many places an acoustic duo could play during his high school years.
As open mics began to pop up around the area in new coffee shops and wine bars on Long Island, he and Krista began performing together. Dave states that while he cannot read music, hea€™s developed a really good ear and his storehouse of musical ability has come from years of playing with other musicians. For Krista, the first non-family influence came from the Broadway play (and subsequent movie) a€?Annie.a€? Krista wanted to be Annie. About the time Jon was returning from Chicago to nurse his wounds, Dave was hosting an open mic at a local Starbucks. They spent another year riding an emotional rollercoaster while they wrote and recorded songs for the banda€™s first album, A Long Way Back (2005). Somewhere during the evolution of M2D, Davea€™s busy life in music, playing bass for M2D and other groups, provoked insecurity in his girlfriend with whom hea€™d become serious. After the first album was released, violinist Leanne Strom, Jona€™s married sister, came into the group. Brian Kroll entered the picture right after the release of Rise, while M2D was showcasing the album. School protocol demanded that Brian had to start by learning band instruments, so he played bassoon and upright bass in fourth grade. Brian had his own band in high school, and then received classical training as a voice major at Hofstra University. By the time this author caught up to Miles to Dayton, it had released its third album, Pass It On (2011). Whereas A Long Way Back had a more pensive, ethereal feel overall, Rise kicks off immediately with a€?Eyes Lighta€? with its refrain my heart sings, revealing a huge uptick in both mood and energy. About the time Jon was returning from Chicago to nurse his wounds, Dave wasA  hosting an open mic at a local Starbucks.
Brian had his own band in high school, and then receivedA  classical training as a voice major at Hofstra University. Another claim to fame: Ita€™s believed Philipa€™s words inspired Jeffersona€™s indelible phrase a€?all men are created equala€? in the Declaration of Independence. When Francesco Mazzei was growing up, Philip was not just some dusty portrait in the stairwell of Castello di Fonteruoli, a medieval property that the Mazzei family inherited in 1435 a€” 57 years before Christopher Columbus discovered America.
The American chapter of Philipa€™s life began when he was running a trading company in London that imported agricultural products from Tuscany. Philip quickly entered political circles in Virginia, where he was welcomed for his liberal ideas and his wit and energy. In the library of Castello di Fonterutoli, giant tomes line the walls, each with refined, spidery handwriting crawling down the leather spine. Made with natural yeast and minimal interference, Philip is matured for 24 months in barrique, primarily American oak thata€™s about 40 percent new.
For a profile of Francesco Mazzei and the winery, see a€?Keeping up with the Mazzeia€™s,a€? in the blog Living La Dolce Vita.
As happened with Methodist ministers during that time period, our family moved frequently.A  We lived in several small Mississippi towns including Sumrall, Laurel, Purvis, McComb, Taylorsville, Ellisville, and Bay St. A  Jeff and I and our children have lived in Louisiana the majority of our married life except for two years immediately after we married while we finished our mastera€™s degrees at Mississippi State University and a few too many winters in Indiana.A  Jeff is a mechanical and civil engineer and I am a pharmacist at St.
Jeff and I moved to Port Sulphur, Louisiana, after we finished our mastera€™s degrees at Mississippi State. However, if youa€™ve been to a Louisiana wedding, you know that non-alcoholic receptions are not the norm.A  (The menu included crawfish sacks, crawfish beignets, gumbo, etc.
Another difference between now and then is that I have not made an article of clothing for myself in at least a dozen years.A A  There doesna€™t seem to be time for sewing anymore.
Being the daughter of a home economics major meant the plaids all had to match, the zipper had to be perfectly straight, and the set-in sleeve could not have a single pleat. A treasured memory of my childhood years revolves around a carved manger scene from John C. After Mother and Daddy died, I decided to see if the school could replace a lost piece of the manger scene Daddy had bought for us when he and John traveled to Israel.
Jeff and I had subcontracted our home on the Rigolets in Slidell, Louisiana, moving in September 2003.
Our drug wholesaler (Morris Dickson) delivered a pallet of supplies taller than me and at least four feet wide in the wee hours of the morning Wednesday after Katrina hit on Monday.A  Those supplies rank as one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen.
A A A  Jeff and the kids had always evacuated to Hattiesburg or Moselle and I worked at the hospital pharmacy during the various hurricanes.A  This plan was a direct result of my experience in Bay St.
Our experiences have taught us that it is family and friends that are important, not your material possessions, although I still have a car packed to the max with family treasures when I evacuate to the hospital. I have inherited a wonderful family, full of the traditions of the southern way of life and the Christian principles toi?? which my parents devoted their lives.A  I hope I can live up to the standards that have been set by the a€?brothers and sistersa€? (and the cousins) of the Walton family.
Jeff attended Mississippi State University, where he played basketball and was a member of the Academic All-SEC team and received a bachelora€™s degree andi?? a mastera€™s degree in engineering. He has been a mechanical and civil engineer in Port Sulpher, Covington, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Crown Point, Indiana.

He defined NORCs as neighborhoods and housing developments, originally built for young families, in which 50 percent of the residents are 60 years or older and have aged in place.
He beefed up the players on one team (7'0", 440 lbs, good at everything) and put a bunch of scrubs on the other team (5'0", 160 lbs, bad at everything). Before I tell you what happened next, I want to lay out a couple of things: first, I made no actual hacks to this game. Four seated couples maneuver vintage tractors into daisy chains and do-si-dos in front of a live audience. Tyson is even hosting an updated version of Sagan's seminal Cosmos series for Fox, which debuts on March 9th. And yeah, that's Seth Macfarlane, creator of Family Guy and much-maligned host of the Oscars. Instead of capping the hole, as was done in a similar instance previously, they decided to see if they could harness the energy of the magma. The IDDP and Iceland's National Power Company, which operates the Krafla geothermal power plant nearby, decided to make a substantial investment to investigate the hole further. Heat was allowed to slowly build in the borehole, and eventually superheated steam flowed up through the well for the next two years. The music will get out there, it's just, like, a question of if we want to sell it to people or give to people or record other songs or whatever. In Star Trek: Voyager, a Starfleet ship is stranded on the other side of the galaxy and the estimated travel time back to Federation space is 75 years. Then snowboarding went mainstream-the X Games, Mountain Dew ads, Shaun White-and, inevitably, it lost a bit of its mojo. Today's skiers can choose to carve turns, launch off the slopestyle jumps, hammer bumps, navigate steeps, tour the backcountry, rip bottomless pow, race in a beer league, or just go skiing like a vacationer from Chicago or Boca Friggin' Raton. But Atlanta residents were faced with a whole lot of chaos (and even more traffic) when they were hit with some unusually white weather. It's hard to remember sometimes, but things are different in places you do not personally live. When you talk about six inches of snow in your city, you are almost definitely talking about six inches of snow on the median strip and shoulder, and highways that are slick, but clear. As part of those experiments, he also divvied up the spectrum in his own idiosyncratic way, giving us ROYGBIV.
His mention in the video of the changing perception of color throughout history reminds me of my favorite segment of Radiolab, which covers that very topic. Again, when there's not enough oxygen being fused to generate energy to balance the pressure of gravitational contraction, the star begins to shrink, almost doubling the temperature, tripling the density, and causing the silicon (which was produced by the oxygen fusion) to begin fusing, in its own complicated sequence involving the alpha process, with the end result of nickel-56 (which radioactively decays into cobalt-56 and iron-56).
Finally, when there's not enough silicon being fused to generate energy to balance the pressure of gravitational contraction, the star begins to shrink.
Here the limit of pressure and density is the electron degeneracy pressure, which is the resistance of electrons being forced to occupy the same energy states, which they can't.
He's also done Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, Prodigy's Firestarter, and Queen's I Want to Break Free.
From there, professional perfume makers used the scents they observed unboxing the new Apple computer to source fragrance samples. Even the stumps of ancient tree trunks have been uncovered, believed to date back to prehistoric times. Chemical study of the leaf wax samples indicates that during the summer months, the coast of Antarctica could have been as warm as 15°F. The New Yorker has an excerpt adapted from the book about George Eliot's biggest fan, Alexander Main. When I thumb through its pages of quotations, some of them extending for more than a page, printed in a font size that has me reaching for reading glasses, I am overcome by a dreadful sense of depletion. But when the call to redefine these cosmic crunchers comes from Stephen Hawking, it's worth taking notice. Return of the Jedi had just come out, and a friend from school who had read the novelization came up to him. I thought to myself: We'll never get through the movie if we shoot a minute, spend four minutes reloading, shoot a minute, spend four minutes reloading.
He just wanted to shoot, shoot, shoot, so we would lie to him and say that we were out of film. From the instant the woman running the demo switched on that strange-looking contraption (inspired in part by the Cuisinart food processor), I knew the Macintosh would change millions of lives, including my own. There were the fratboys, the insiders, the football players, and developers played a role too.
Instead, Apple believes that every one of its products has particular strengths for particular tasks, and that people should be able to switch among them with ease. And it's being done by a bunch of people who are incredibly talented but who in most organizations would be working three levels below the impact of the decisions they're making in the organization. Before then it had always been let's make it so programmers can do stuff and produce programs.
The paradigm before the Mac in terms of Apple products was command-line commands in the Apple II and the Apple III. Case in point: director Steve McQueen (Shame, 12 Years a Slave, not Bullitt) interviews Kanye West for the Feb 2014 issue.
Romantimatic (App Store) is an app that reminds you to do one simple thing: send your significant other a "I'm thinking of you" note. He only counts areas of around 3,100 square kilometres (1,200 square miles) or larger -- enough to create a sound buffer around a central point of absolute quiet.
A Japanese company called Type is selling eyeglasses that evoke the Helvetica and Garamond typefaces.
I wonder what some of the older Raygun-inspired GarageFonts typefaces would look like as glasses? It does matter what oil you use, and the oil that gives the best results is not in this list. Above, planes, that in 1914 would have appeared unimaginably sophisticated, duelled in the skies, some carrying experimental wireless radio sets, reporting real-time reconnaissance.
Tanks had gone from the drawing board to the battlefield in just two years, also changing war forever. Lucky Strike did launch new flavors, update packaging and launch "capsule" cigarettes in the five years since Mad Men premiered, but so too did its competitors. It seems that the sap used to produce maple syrup doesn't flow from the tops of trees, it gets sucked up from the trees' roots.
In other words, it is possible that maple syrup could now be produced as a row crop like every other commercial crop in North America. According to the researchers' calculations, an acre of what is now called "the plantation method" could sustain 5,800 saplings with taps yielding 400 gallons of syrup per acre.
As compelling as the history of the civil rights movement in America is, the production of the film deserves some of the credit for its power.
It happened during a shoot with the cast of The Haves and the Have Nots, a show on Oprah's network. The 2012 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference was proving to be as enlightening and uplifting as expected.
The family sang together and Jon began studying cello at The North Shore Suzuki School in Setauket when he was 4. However, Dave was four years ahead of Krista and three ahead of Jon, so the two boys knew who each other was, but were a€?like ships passing in the night,a€? according to Jon.
Davea€™s grandfather owned a music store where he taught accordion to Davea€™s mother and all of her siblings. Dad leaned toward Styx and Led Zeppelin, while Mom tilted in the direction of Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand. He took a few lessons and jammed with a neighbor who played guitar and picked it up pretty quickly.
Crosby, Stills, Nash and Younga€™s album Four Way Street had made an impact and would set the structure for the musical style he would prefer from that point on. Most places were bars that were still promoting a lot of the dying glam rock scene of the late a€™80s and early a€™90s, but nevertheless, they managed to play a few opening slots. They started a group with her then-boyfriend, called Sleeping Genius which flourished from playing open mics and had a similar folk rock sound to M2D. For her, the big influence was her grandmother, who, when younger, had sung in a large traveling choral group called The Sweet Adelines.
Throughout grade school shea€™d sing her part, but wouldna€™t make an effort to stand out from the group.
Krista, coming out of a yearlong post-breakup funk, was working as a barista at the same Starbucks. There are songs about Jon and Krista getting together and breaking up all through that album.
At the time I was interviewing the band, Leanne was busy having a baby and was unable to participate.
As a kid growing up in West Hempstead, he obsessively drummed on everything a€“ pots, boxes, whatever. He played drums all through college and gigged in a progressive rock band and a cover band. The progression from one album to the next is readily evident to even the most casual listener. In the middle of a big show at the Patchogue Theatre in 2008, Jon fed his cello through a loop and, over his instrumental, proposed to Krista in front of 700 to 800 people. If you havena€™t a clue, let me suggest a wine thata€™s fit for the occasion: Philip, named after Philip Mazzei, an intriguing, if minor, player in the formative years of the United States of America. For starters, hea€™s the one who brought the first vitus vinifera to the Colonies and planted the first commercial vineyards in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Mazzei, who wrote under the pseudonym Furioso, penned these words: a€?All men are by nature equally free and independent. His older brother Filippo (and fellow CEO) took Philipa€™s name, and the household was generally aware of their 18th century ancestora€™s exploits. His professions included medicine, trade, horticulture, viticulture, politics, and pamphleteeringa€”vocations that took him around the globe. A friend from home, the powerful Grand Duke Leopold of Tuscany, asked him to acquire one of the latest modern conveniences: a metal-lined fireplace, named the Franklin Stove.
Jefferson provided the initial land for Philipa€™s venture: 193 acres on the south side of Monticello (above). Philip the Restless became increasingly disengaged as he became more involved in the birth of the nation. He hired one of Philipa€™s vignerons to take charge of Monticelloa€™s vineyards, and thus Philipa€™s legacy lived on. Wine was always part of the equation; records show the Mazzeis made wine as far back as the 1300s.
Ita€™s a delicious winea€”bursting with dark fruit, with a background of spice and cedar, offering plush tannins that give structure without being overbearing. The Mazzei winery has partnered with the Thomas Jefferson Foundation to bring Tuscan vines to Virginia, fulfilling Philipa€™s promise (right). Youa€™ll find him very pleasant company indeeda€”whether on Presidenta€™s Day or any day of the year.
It is unusual that Jeffa€™s fathera€™s first name is Walton, and Jeffa€™s middle name is Walton. Remember when a south Mississippi wedding reception was cake, punch, mints, and nuts?)A  You can imagine Tracya€™s dismay when we even considered not serving alcohol at the reception. The person I contacted at the school asked me what pieces were in our set and what the initials were on the bottom of each piece.A  It turns out that the earliest pieces of our set were carved by one of the original students at the school which was established in the Depression era.
We were very fortunate that our hospital did not flood.A  We slept on the floor for the first few days until the nurses needed blood pressure medication for their own personal meds and we bartered for some mattresses.
FEMA was given the same list on the same day and delivered a grand total of three cases of IV fluids two weeks later.A  It was funny that the first medicine we ran out of was Colace, a stool softener.
This was finally and perfectly expressed by my father at his own funeral.A  They both had a detailed plan for their funerals which included details of the hymns and scripture to be used. As an adult, I see that church as a beautiful church with impressive stained glass, but not quite so huge. Over time, this threshold definition has been adjusted by communities and policymakers to reflect local residential patterns.
I didn't have some special jailbroken Xbox, nor a special copy of Madden, nor anything like that. Macfarlane was a big fan of the original Cosmos series and was instrumental in getting the new series made.
There are many pieces on the soundtrack that are kind of based on actual songs that we've never really recorded.
Early on in the show, it's revealed the ship has only 38 photon torpedoes and "no way to replace them after they're gone". The first generation of riders got real jobs and started having kids, and snowboarding's image never matured to accommodate them.
It's cool; there's a place for you and a group of likeminded folks who would love to have you. This, as before, balances against the gravitational pressure and returns the star to equilibrium. On completion the laptop was sent back to Australia, travelling nearly 50,000kms and returned to our clients together with scent of an Apple Macbook Pro. I can think of no surer way to be put off the work of George Eliot than by trying to read the "Wise, Witty, and Tender Sayings." On any given page is an out-of-context pronouncement -- "iteration, like friction, is likely to generate heat instead of progress" -- or a phrase so recondite that it requires several readings before it can be parsed. In a paper posted online, the physicist, based at the University of Cambridge, UK, and one of the creators of modern black-hole theory, does away with the notion of an event horizon, the invisible boundary thought to shroud every black hole, beyond which nothing, not even light, can escape. Which also meant the actors could get through 60 seconds of a scene and I'd have to call reload.
I think it was developed so Godard could have a camera that would fit into his bicycle basket. Words appeared with the clarity of text on a printed page - and for the first time, ordinary people had the power to format text as professional printers did. On a pleasant, light background (you can later change the background to any of a number of patterns, if you like), little pictures called "icons" appear, representing choices available to you. This is why the Mac is still relevant, 30 years on-because sometimes a device with a keyboard and a trackpad is the best tool for the job. For all I know someone somewhere had bought one ten minutes earlier, but these were the first two that the only shop selling them in London had in stock on the 24th January 1984, so I'm sticking to my story.
In the open source world of Linux, I'm messing around with Raspberry Pis now, and it terrifies me, because I think, "This is not ready for the consumer," but then I think about Android, which is built on top of Linux. So you talk about doing all of these other things, which is great, but there's really no amount of money that could make you more influential than you are now. You attach software to the expression of romantic love, and some people are going to see it as cynical. But I've maintained a non-playing interest in the game and have even been playing a little bit recently again, teaching my son how to play. Over the years, his list has shrunk as he returns to a previously quiet spot, only to find it now polluted by noise. He has been giving interviews-albeit contentious ones-for as long as he's been making music, and he's been making music for more than fifty years. This oil is ideal for seasoning cast iron for the same reason it's an ideal base for oil paint and wood finishes.
In 1914 generals on horseback galloped across battlefields as men in cloth caps charged the enemy without the necessary covering fire. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth.
Standing six feet seven inches, Freuchen was an arctic explorer, journalist, author, and anthropologist. Which means that maple syrup makers can use saplings instead of fully grown maple trees to produce syrup. If the method is realized, producing maple syrup on a commercial scale may no longer be restricted to those with forest land; it could require just 50 acres of arable land instead of 500 acres of forest. To hear the stories of these momentous events told by the participants themselves, without embellishment, is quite extraordinary. Andrew Wylie, a leading literary agent, said he thought that publishers would pay between seventeen and twenty million dollars for the book-the most ever for a work of nonfiction-and around twelve million for Michelle Obama's memoirs. His Democratic and Republican opponents were right: he ran largely on language, on the expression of a country's potential and the self-expression of a complicated man who could reflect and lead that country.
As usual with shoots like this, Cowart only got a few minutes with each subject, time to shoot but not much else. The thing about Einstein was that he was a theoretical physicist, so they were all theories.
A group blending guitar, violin, bass, drums and anywhere from three to five voices was lighting the fuse to a powder keg that could have blown a hole in the ceiling. The vocal harmonies and instrumentation were as tight as a leotard on a ballerina and the overall musical command of the group had all the earmarks of a wealth of experience.
Kristaa€™s powerful, soaring alto grips each vowel like a pipe wrench and her voice echoes in the listenera€™s mind long after the song is over. However, for me, the growth of the banda€™s character centers around its ability to work through an initial emotional maelstrom and build on it.
He studied the trumpet in public school and was in the school band, the church choir and youth orchestras. The floodgates opened for Dave and Krista one New Yeara€™s Eve when their mother played her entire Beatles collection. The title aptly suggests that time had to elapse before they could understand the process they were going through. His sistersa€™ record collection planted the seed and today he cana€™t remember a time when he didna€™t want to be a musician.
On the recorded track, we hear Krista singing, In your heart, you will find a piece of me, a symphonya€¦ Krista later walked down the aisle to the accompaniment of Jona€™s cello solo from that song. This was in 1774 on land obtained through his neighbor, Thomas Jefferson, as well as on Jeffersona€™s own Monticello plantation. Such equality is necessary in order to create a free government.a€? Without question, the mena€™s thinking was in sync, and the two politicos were tight friends who shared progressive libertarian ideals, traded volumes of private letters, and even published writings together. He was pushy, always asking a€?I want to do this, I want to do that.a€™ So he was a bit of a pain. Philip got in touch with its inventor, Benjamin Franklin, who was then working in London as an agent for Pennsylvania and other American colonies. Philip purchased another 700 next door, named his farm Colle, and started planting on both farms. He went back to Tuscany at Jeffersona€™s request to solicit funds for the State of Virginia from his old friend the Grand Duke and to promote the Coloniesa€™ perspective. Whata€™s remarkable is how many oft-told tales of Chianti intersect with the Mazzei family history. This wine could dress up for an elegant prime-rib dinner or go casual for a picnic of sloppy joes and BBQ. Not surprisingly, ita€™s quite popular in the Washington DC and Virginia markets and sells like gangbusters at the gift shop in Monticello. The idea is to add a special plot to the vineyards now on the presidential property adjoining Monticello, named Montalto. After graduating from South Jones High School, I attended Millsaps College and graduated in 1972.


Church was the center of the activity at our house.A  I still remember Mother cooking her a€?besta€? for covered-dish dinners and especially for the times when the District Superintendent came for Sunday dinner. The wedding invitations had so many a€?Waltona€? components, many people thought the printers had made a mistake.A  We have three children, Tracy Lynn, Roger (Rogera€™s middle name is also Walton), and Christy Jo. You did not even need any bait.A  We would throw a string in the water, and the crabs would grab the string and stay on it until you pulled them out of the water. Then, the granddaughter stopped growing and I started sewing my own clothes.A  I made all my clothes until the hippie style of jeans and T shirts became the standard wardrobe of a sixties college student. A The son of this original carver is considered one of the best from the school, and he carved the wise men and shepherds.A  The baby Jesus and manger and small angel were carved by the lady who is considered the best carver of the baby Jesus and manger.
Who hasn't considered whether or not they'd ever prefer a fresh jalape~no to a pickled one, and who hasn't considered de-friending a friend who dares to express a preference for fresh over pickled? But fundamental to the genius of the smiling Mac is that it didn't come across as silly or corny. Yeah, there's a song called Milk and Honey and a song called Dimensions that are, like, lost great Arcade Fire songs. So I decided I would shoot the movie with this documentary 35-millimeter film camera that was not designed to shoot dialogue because it sounds like a sewing machine.
But I really think that as insane as that setup was, it created a really safe environment for the actors. Until that point, personal computers were locked in an esoteric realm of codes and commands. Selecting and moving text was made dramatically easier by the then-quaint mouse accompanying the keyboard. A word-processing program might be represented by a pen, while the program that lets you draw pictures might have a paintbrush icon. The group might stay together maybe for one more iteration of the product, and then they'll go their separate ways. So my question is: What are you going to do with all of the influence that you have right now? But the light the supernova shines on the dust could teach astronomers something about the host galaxy, too. We've wrapped code around almost everything in our lives, but deeply felt emotion is still supposed to be start-to-finish analog. Here are some hints: What oil do artists mix with pigment for a high quality oil paint that dries hard and glassy on the canvas?
Even if one excluded all capsule (2010- ) and "All Natural" (2011-) cigarette sales (which would have been predominantly cannibalized, rather than net new), Lucky Strike would still have grown 12% between 2007 and 2012, five times faster than the industry overall and eight times British American Tobacco (the owner of Lucky Strike). He participated in several arctic journeys (including a 1000-mile dogsled trip across Greenland), starred in an Oscar-winning film, wrote more than a dozen books (novels and nonfiction, including his Famous Book of the Eskimos), had a peg leg (he lost his leg to frostbite in 1926; he amputated his gangrenous toes himself), was involved in the Danish resistance against Germany, was imprisoned and sentenced to death by the Nazis before escaping to Sweden, studied to be a doctor at university, his first wife was Inuit and his second was a Danish margarine heiress, became friends with Jean Harlow and Mae West, once escaped from a blizzard shelter by cutting his way out of it with a knife fashioned from his own feces, and, last but certainly not least, won $64,000 on The $64,000 Question. Furthermore, any region with the right climate for growing maples would be able to start up maple "farms". Miles to Dayton was introducing itself to the uninitiated in one of four a€?quada€? showcase groupings during the mid to late evening hours.
Given the euphorically upbeat experience it provides its audience, it is worth noting that in the history of Miles to Dayton, there were not one, not two, but three relationship meltdowns before and during the groupa€™s evolution. For instance, a€?Green Light Goa€? was a positive song about both Jon and Krista, attempting to will them to a€?take that step.a€? Krista co-wrote a€?Therapya€? with Jon, essentially telling him to get over his ambivalence in letting go of his ex-girlfriend and accepting her as his true soul mate. The title track sums up the albuma€™s purpose nicely: All the loving in the world wona€™t mean a thing unless you learn how to sing and share it a€¦ and pass it on. Although Jon and Krista were becoming a couple, their progress didna€™t exactly dovetail.A  Krista was a year further into her healing while Jon had some catching up to do. There are notes of Jefferson that say, a€?This guy isa€¦a€™ a€? Francesco shakes his head with a grimace, then breaks out in a laugh.
They struck up a friendship, and through Franklin, Philip met Virginia businessman and politician Thomas Adams. To finance the operation, he created a wine companya€”Americana€™s firsta€”called the Wine Society, which was meant to produce and sell wine.
The first written mention of Chianti wine, in 1398, was penned by a Mazzei: the notary Ser Lapo.
The Grande Ecaille mine was closed two years after we moved to Port Sulphur, and the company closed the town site and we moved to Slidell. A How did we get in and out of a car with our dresses so short that?A  Our son, Roger, did learn to sew a little bit when he took home ec in high school.A  His motivation for taking that class was more the ratio of boys to girls rather than learning to sew. You would stand with your backside to the heater for a few minutes and then run and hop in the bed.A  At some point in time, I think in the early sixties, we started using electric blankets. We received the three wise men, shepherds, and angels, a single piece each year until I was in college. The appraiser classified the manger set as a a€?national treasure.a€?A  The treasure is my memories of the excitement as the family unwrapped the new piece each year. Calls between the affected areas in Louisiana and Mississippi were difficult to complete, but we could talk to the kids and Jeffa€™s sister Ceil in Jackson.
Second, I stake whatever journalistic integrity I have upon the statement that I didn't Photoshop any of this, and that it happened just as I say it did.
They are actually just things that, like, fit the world of the movie and then we kind of wrote them to the film. We don't really know why Newton decided there were two distinct types of purple, but we do know he thought there should be seven fundamental colors.
Vince really did some extraordinary things, like the scene where he's supposed to be drunk and he jumps up on the table. A file would represent stored documents - book reports, letters, legal briefs and so forth.
They also had strong opinions about how our software should work, which in hindsight were almost all good ideas. Not buying things or solidifying myself or trying to make my house bigger, or trying to show people how many Louis Vuitton bags I can get, or buying my way to a good seat at the table. One team is already looking for radioactive elements, such as nickel, that theories predict form in such supernova, says Shri Kulkarni, an astronomer at California Institute of Technology.
You don't put your anniversary on a calendar, because it means you're a bad person who doesn't care.
A spot in the Hoh Rainforest in Washington is one, as are places in Grasslands National Park in Canada, Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota and Haleakala National Park in Hawaii.
What oil is commonly used by woodturners to give their sculptures a protective, soft-sheen finish? Four years later, steel-helmeted combat teams dashed forward protected by a curtain of artillery shells. Eventually after he was alone and the coal -- "the one factor that had kept the house from growing in upon me" -- was gone, he threw out the stove to make more room inside. Not race as invoked by his predecessors in electoral politics or in the civil-rights movement, not race as an insistence on tribe or on redress; rather, Obama made his biracial ancestry a metaphor for his ambition to create a broad coalition of support, to rally Americans behind a narrative of moral and political progress. Kristaa€™s brother, Dave March, the bassist, has written the occasional key song and is an original anchor for the group. Although Jon is well-rounded, music was always number one in the household while he was growing up.
The fact that it was developed and presented on the album says a lot about their seriousness of intent, both musically and personally. Two years later, Brian made a special trip to see the band and, lo and behold, they were playing without a drummer. Also, while working as a band member through the Long Island-based Omnipop Agency, he played in highly accomplished cover bands for clubs on Long Island, in upstate ski lodges and on the Jersey Shore. He lived in, not just went to, Tuscany, Turkey, England, Virginia, France, Poland, Russia, and back in Tuscany,a€? he says, tapping the table for emphasis.
Both Americans encouraged Philip to come up with a plan to cultivate Mediterranean vines, olive trees, citrus, and silk in the Colonies. Thirty-one investors shelled out 50 pounds sterling per share; many prominent colonial leaders were among them, first and foremost Washington and Jefferson. Then therea€™s the legend of the Black Rooster, which recounts how Florence and Siena settled a longstanding territorial dispute through a horse race; the resulting border falls precisely at the hamlet of Fonterutoli. That manger scene is one of the first items packed in my car as we evacuate for a hurricane.
Leveraging snowboarding's rebel cred, they modeled its image on skateboarding and aimed it almost entirely at teenagers. You know, he had to do that in front of a lot of people and I feel like they looked at me and they were like, Doug is clearly not being self-conscious. Even the simplest tasks required memorizing the proper intonations, then executing several exacting steps.
To see a particular file, you'd move the mouse, which would, in turn, move the cursor to the file you wanted. Some say you must use a saturated fat -- that is, a fat that is solid at room temperature, whether it's animal or vegetable (palm oil, coconut oil, Crisco, lard). Hea€™s been classically trained but still remembers the feeling of discovering different styles of music like jazz, rock, folk and funk.
You'd tap a button on the mouse twice, and the contents of the file would appear on the screen: dark on light, just like a piece of paper.
Jona€™s sister, Leanne Strom, a classically trained violinist, having switched to the rootsier style of the band, provides one main reason why M2D (abbreviation from Dave) compositions achieve majestic flight. When the relationship with her boyfriend collapsed, the group broke up and she went into a tailspin and didna€™t do music for about a year.
The banda€™s name refers to living life to its fullest a€“ going the miles a€“ until being reunited with loved ones whoa€™ve passed on.
Brian reintroduced himself, and then sent a follow-up email to Jon, pitching himself for the drummera€™s slot. It's better to have one way to do things, than have two or more, no matter how much better the new ones are. Ten years ago, he cowrote and starred in a movie, Masked and Anonymous, that was about his own masked anonymity. In college, at the University of Miami, he studied the cello and trumpet, sang in the jazz vocal ensemble and had his own band called Soma. Jon and Krista knew each other well in high school (he might not have been aware of it, but she had a crush on him). He is reportedly working on another studio recording, his thirty-sixth, and year after year and night after night he still gets on stage to sing songs unequaled in both their candor and circumspection. Drummer Brian Kroll, who joined the group a few years ago, has a powerful, classically trained voice. Not realizing what was transpiring, the normally freewheeling Dave apprehensively asked Jon a€?Who is this guy?a€? In a role reversal, the normally cautious Jon answered, a€?Hea€™s our new drummer.
Though famous as a man who won't talk, Dylan is and always has been a man who won't shut up. Some say the additives in Pam leave a residue at high temperatures and pure canola oil is best. This means whenever the sound equipment of a venue permits, theya€™re capable of five-part harmony.
She has great conformation, exceptional movement and is the happiest dog I have ever owned. Her job as a therapy dog for an 83 yr old woman that had is stroke is one she takes very seriously. We continually have Home Health therapists in daily and she greets each of them then quietly goes to her spot to watch everything that goes on. She accompanies me into the chicken coop and is great with the chickens as well as with her cat ( yes her cat that she found in a ditch).
She passed her Herding Instinct testing at 5 months of age and now working on her Canine Good Citizen certification.
I have owned and worked with many breeds of dogs and Arya is by far one of the most intelligent, willing and trainable.
I would totally recommend PATCHWORK SHEPHERDS and have friends now that have bought puppies from here as well and all of them are as wonderful as Arya. A He said, "she is really a love," and described her gentleness and cuddling even from the get-go. A She is very playful with her 'brothers' (two older choc labs), but is extremely responsive to me and is my 'watcher.' A No matter where I am, she is A watching over me. A When we settle in the evening to watch a movie, she will quietly peruse the house, coming back to my side after she has checked everything out. A If she could, she would hop up on my lap and sit there, just as she did when she was a fuzz-ball pup! It was serendipity that brought you all the way over the mountains on Monday so we could get her!Also a couple of short videos if you're interested. I was just getting to the serious stage ofshopping for a black coated GSD to raise for my own pet and protection dogwhen my nephew T.J. BlackJack (Zoey x Drake 2009) is doing fine, being a good boy that loves to be around us (Right now he is under my desk sleeping at my feet). We had many family gattering and other partys and he is always good around people in the house. When my kid gets around to it she will send you pictures, sorry Ia€™m not the computer savvy one.
Thank you again for Morgan, she is a gem, here is her 9 week picture (the ear did come down). I think he will excell, and it will be good for the boys to learn how to deal with him (other than play). We purchased Pruett (black collar male from Zoey x Doc August '08 litter) and were so thrilled with him that we had to get another!
A few weeks later we welcomed Daphne (hot pink collar female from Anna x Doc August '08 litter) into our lives. He quickly learns new commands and we are currently practicing, "seek", where we will tell him to "sit and stay" and then we go hide his ball and tell him to "seek" and he finds it. She loves to play in the snow!!She has been doing really well in the house, she is a very quick learner. I know the "puppy stage" lasts for awhile, but if it continues to go as smoothly as it has been going, it will definitely be a breeze.
She loves to play fetch and she is really good at it, which is surprising to me for her age. She is such a sweet puppy, she is always trying to make friends with all the animals she meets, most which unfortunately haven't been too fond of her. Miah is starting to be a little friendly, not much, but like I said, Tymber is a persistant little pup and I believe that eventually they will be pals. We will be taking her on her second fishing trip tomorrow, which is always very exciting for us. She loves playing with any kind of plants and grass- we are hoping she grows out of that stage for our landscape's sake!
Anywho, I just wanted to let you know what a great pup she is and how much Tyler and myself enjoy having her. He is everythingA I could have ever hoped for in a German Shepherd and I am really happy that I got him.
Several people in our training class have commented on his lovely conformation as he trots across the room while playing with the other pups. He's a great dog!A Anyway, hope all is well in your part of the world and that you are enjoying the holiday season. Although I had some concerns on how Gracie would react, from the first walk that we did on the way home from Patchwork, she has been wonderful. Already they play together, with Gracie laying down so that she is on Argus' level, letting him crawl all over her. He already knows his name, figured out how to negotiate the step up the deck, and how to run from me when he picks up something I don't want him to have. He follows us around from room to room and always sleeps next to us when we are in the room. I do have a crate and have used it but not very much, mostly I just watch him and when I catch that certain look I just take him out and tell him to go potty. When I was in shop he would play under my bench and when he was tired he would sleep under my stool. He and Gracie had a good time exploring and finding just about every kind of poop there is out there. Everyone that meets her is in awe of not only her beauty and structure, but even more so of her super sweet and willing disposition.A  I cannot say enough about her.
She is very gentle, smart, intelligent, super athletic, and just wants to please and love everyone.A  She loves to crawl into our laps and pretend she is a tiny lap dog. A His big brother Jackson and he are the best of buds, they have really bonded into something special! A Also, wea€™d like to thank you for letting us come out and see him when he was a puppy, and for giving us little updates on how he was doing when he was just a lila€™ guy.A  (10lbs when we picked him up to take him home seems little compared to the size he is now! After working for a vet for more then 10 years my husband had to really talk me into getting a GSD.
She has gone though a basic and advanced off leash obediance class and this comming year brings more fun with tracking and agility classes signed up. We are now thinking of getting her a little brother and look forward to coming out to visit and meet more parents.
He is adapting quickly to his new home on Orcas Island, WA A and after 3 days already knows his new name. We have had him for two days now and he has already learned his name, learned how to come when called, walks great on a leash, has learned the command "gentle" for when he takes things with his mouth, is completely potty trained and sleeps all night long in his crate with no problems. We have never seen such a loving, well behaved, intelligent puppy before and we feel so lucky that he is now a part of our family. John and I were so pleased to see the safety measures that you take prior to letting anyone be near or handle any of the puppies. Because of your loving care for your dogs we now have two of the greatest puppies that anyone could ever ask for in life! I am grateful for the time that we were able to spend with the puppies getting to know each and every one of them. You are wonderful about keeping everyone informed through your website just as you did while we were waiting to be able to take the Sebastian and Kasia home. We were also very impressed that you were so willing to let us come visit and you even encouraged us to do so. We thoroughly appreciate that you allowed us to be a part of the puppies lives even before they were in their new home. Through your attentive behavior to each and every one of your puppies we new the silly things they did, what they liked to play with all the way down to their little itchy spot that they liked to have scratched. Because of all your love and attention we have two beautiful, healthy puppies that we will get to love for years to come.A A Thank you so much for our beautiful puppies! A  I got hopeful when I found your pages, with your dog Penny, who reminded me so much of our Isis, who was a beautiful, athletic,and loving black and red blanket pattern longcoat.
You DID say on your page that your goal was to find the right dog for people, right down to the color. The way you described the parents of different litters, and later the pups themselves, was exactly right.A  Patiently, you discussed all the little characteristics of each pup in a way that just about made up for our never being able to actually see the pups in person or hold them in our arms. Pashi learned every trick all of my other dogs know in one 10 minute session at age 11 weeks, and never forgot them.A  She and Itta (9 weeks) both sit at the door automatically now, better than any of our other dogs who have been working on it for ages.
