easter highlights

Recorded Concert For George on a Faulty Tape.
Not sure of the diagnostics involved, but I might just take up the suggestion of turning the VCR into an alternative bed for a pet.

How to make Cream Cheese (via Rebecca Blood)
What I also need is How not to make a scene when you discover your Blue Heeler has just gobbled a whole platter of cheese while you were seeing off your visitors at the gate.

Oh well, Flo. All Things Must Pass.

Evil, that Blue Heeler

Well, to her credit she did look a bit contrite when I found her lurking round the campfire.

I'm just not used to having such an opportunistic dog, and didn't remove it from the coffee table which was convieniently at canine nose level.

I love the way dogs turn into different creatures in the presence of food. You think you have a relationship with them, with interaction and stuff, and then FOOD TAKES OVER. Treachery abounds, snarling and violence can ensue, and the beast is totally focussed.. it turns out we just amuse them while they wait for the main game.

Exactly right.
Even gentle Abby once turned nasty and had a sudden violent stoush with Doug over a potato chip once.
It is indeed a reality check re these beasts who impersonate pets.
