I am starting to hate facebook. Profile image can't have a white background, as it will be cropped by their algo.

I think Orwell mentioned that in his '1984' book, which he wrote in 1948.
The book was banned in many countries in 1950.

I saw that and wondered whether it was still a banned topic on the forum. :tongue:

What a weekend.

First, before 6:00 AM on Saturday, I get a call from my extremely distraught daughter. The night before was her and her cat's first night in their new place. This "new" place happens to be a trailer in the back yard of a house. She woke up, and her cat is no where to be found!

Sometime in the night, she left the trailer to go into the house to use the bathroom. She was afraid the cat got out at that time. In a new neighborhood, he'd be, well, very difficult to find :frown:.

But later in the day, she found him, hiding up under the driver's seat. You just can't imagine her relief.

Then on Sunday (again before 6:00!), I heard a big commotion in the yard. I rushed out to find a coyote eating one of my chickens :surprised!!!!!!!! I yelled and the coyote ran off. Then the chicken got up and ran to me! She didn't have any bleeding, and she wasn't limping. She had lost a lot of feathers though! The coyote had plucked her lower back :cry:. She spent the rest of the day sitting on her nest, recovering. But she's out in the yard today, eating and drinking. Seriously, another 30 seconds and it would have been too late.

Animal drama, animal trauma. But it's all good now.

I think there's a good chance the coyote will be back, though. You need to provide the chicken with a shotgun and drill on how to use it.

I have deleted the solstice December 2012 in my time machine.
I do not want to trigger a time quake and get banned on the forum.

Happy the cat was found, so glad you saved your chicken, poor thing. I hope you're able to create a secure area like dl did, a lot of work, but worth it.

Hey, I thought the internet was supposed to be shut down yesterday (according to Anonymous). Did I miss it? :rofl:

A coworker from another building came into my office this morning and asked if he could leave his black backpack in my office while he was in a meeting. :uhh:
