    Lol, hope the dog cleaned its teeth, before bed....

    • Welcome back, Doc! I missed your witty banter and occasional wisdom.

      Can you believe it's the last month of 2013? This year flew.

            We don't need to go deer stalking to see them. Yesterday, we watched out our back window as a small buck (just a 4 point) carefully surveyed our backyard, then leapt over the fence into the yard and trotted on through. This happens a lot, I think we're on a deer migration path.

            The dogs love to munch on the deer "raisinettes", and pass foul gas later. *sigh* Well, at least the dogs alert us to where the land mines are... why do dogs like to eat second hand veg so much?

              it's prob more expensive here once it's been packaged and has a UMF factor on! "manuka" honey bulk in the organic vege store which will be bush honey with mainly manuka in it is $24.50nz/kg. flash packaged stuff is silly money. no organic honey really left here as we got varroa now

              my dog is not as bad as some. my neighbours dogs go eat all the fresh rabbit poo on her nice lawn every morning. my dog isnt that interested. i can buy green tripe for him but it is not cheap and it stinks. it is easier to let him at the sheep or cow pats. he ignores any non ruminant species and was far more interested in the deer itself than any deer droppings which makes sense as he is a fancy pants hunting dog. the last thing you want is him indicating when he finds deer poo in the bush! i think too it is the bacteria in it. kinda like probiotics for dogs. you just need to be careful as they can share common parasites so you need to remember to drench the dog.

                Going by Amazon the price seems to vary by quality, from 18 to 28 for 500gms, which at $2 to the pound makes it unjustafiable, for this hombre!

                • Went to bed early today... had some bizzare dreams... I don't normally have weird dreams when I take melatonin, some folks do. I think I woke up 4 or 5 times, so I don't think I got more than about 4 hours of sleep total.

                  The dream that I remember the best wasn't the weirdest one I had. I was at a Hallowen Party, and I was coming down a circular staircase that had decorations on it (candles, party favors etc) and the staircase led down to a bar and I was met at the bar by a very lovely, very curvy, dark haired lady in a very slinky blue dress. Apparently I knew this person well, and the embrace when we met was very "friendly"... and we exchanged some pleasantries and banter, and we separatd a bit and continued our conversation. After a few minutes, she grabbed both of my arms and started shaking, and had a strange look on her face. She collapsed at my feet. When she fell down 2 things became very obvious..... 1 she was going commando... 2, she was a hermaphrodite. There was a guy at the bar doing a bit of crotch gazing, so I covered my friend with my jacket and gave the gazer a fat lip and a matching eye.... I got the bartender to call for an ambulance and about that time I woke up.....

                  Sometimes I have strange dreams....

                        • Hermaphrodites and bar fights - awesome dream!

                          My only icky one is that my phone is ringing and I know the person on the other end died some years ago. I hate that one and always pinch myself awake - and I NEVER answer the phone in the dream.

                          • I always have very vivid memorable dreams; at least one every night, often more. I've even had dreams continue episode 2 the next night! Many are too weird to describe. Sweetie just rolls his eyes when I try to!

                            Doc, your dream sounds awesome!

                            • The other night I dreamt that my husband was a zombie. He didn't seem pleased when I told him about it.
