The one where I talk about getting puppy or dog and stuff...


Puppies are hard work. Don’t get pup if you don’t want that work.
ALL dogs are a responsibility, Last 3 i had were rescued, not pups..have had pups before. Thats why when this pup i have now came up it WASN'T an AWWW puppy, cosmetic decision, it was a deliberate consideration of the work they entail. And so i decided yes, puppy this time.

All decisions are more than just AWWW thatd be nice, cute, want one. When people make that "Awwww" the basis of getting dog/pup, thats why so many puppies are in rescue places or euthanised before 2 years old. Theres too many. 

There should never be the just "want one" decision. IMHO too many dont consider Whats Involved. 

I love dogs. I dont understand that process of get one and dispose of it when its difficult. FIX the difficult. OR DONT GET ONE. 

So yes, IF you are aware of the work involved and the responsibility- rescue/ adopt. I have before. 

THIS time, this pup isnt rescue because a friend had 6 pups and asked if i wanted one. They were of same opinion, that Good Home required, and they definitely as far as i can tell made sure each pup was carefully considered by the person asking after one.

So to surmise , its not Get a pup, get rid when difficult. Its not HAVE pups either just for the money..yts not just get a puppy for "The Cute" its consider all aspects to avoid the atrocious numbers that end up in shelters. 

NOTWITHSTANDING there are sometimes unavoidable circs that mean the dog may need rehoming. That i understand. But the aspect of abandonment is the thrust of this.


I wrote this from seeing a plea from a shelter showing Cute Dog pic, (meaning well) and also from reading a piece that was suggestion Older People should get dogs "on prescription" to help them exercise... which whilst stating exercise/activity was a by product of having a dog, was a uniformly Ludicrous as a proposition.

I try and share helps and advice ive done, when i can.

This card has helped me . Be responsible with it. It can assist you repair bad credit history . Dont use it as a Big Loan Source. Use it wisely . Remember it can damage you if you dont be responsible. Use it, as a pay a bill, and then pay it back immediately, or shopping on line , as credit card protection will exist from that on purchases, on line AND in shops. Make sure you pay it back asap. It can greatly assist you, if used correctly.

Talking to some re twitter alternatives

This is my opinion.

Several ask me ... arrrrrgh twitter isnt right for me but i still want twitter, so ... as its a recurrent question..

For phones on browser, rather than the twitter app, or web twitter. load that in phone browser. 

Can use that on computers too . 
Nice interface. Not as mucky as the twitter. I say not as mucky as the twitter? some have said the twitter is a becoming less easy to use as interface? This one is quite easy. 

Also theres the plume app on android and tweetbot app on ios . If you dont wanna use the phone browser, all get rid of, sort of, the twitter foibles.
You can but try.

General user Interfaces ... (GUIs) . are sometimes problematic for people, so these options i state are my opinion of stuff to try instead of twitter, for twitter. 

Generally i use tweetdeck and tweetbot, dabr certainly was a go to for me many times in the past and will be in the future too.

Pasta In A Rice Cooker? Great for spoonies. tip here.


pasta doubles in volume when cooked so dont put too much in. 1 cup dry will make 2 cups cooked .

Add water to cover the pasta plus about a centimetre above the pasta (you can do al dente pasta by just covering the pasta, its a trial and error to how you like it) ((cos its PASTA))

You can add a small bit of salt if you want. I dont .

And because it foams when cooking you should add couple of teaspoons of oil of your choice. That'll stop the foaming .

Lid on. Set cooking .

Couple of stirs while cooking keeps it separated .

Also try not let it go to warm setting else itll brown on the bottom.

No big pots of water. Cheaper to cook , seriously AND doesnt make the kitchen like a sauna (great in summer, well anytime really) . And theres no draining needed either. Very handy .
