The NFL's Washington Redskins are changing their name because of all the hatred toward, and violent hostility associated with, their name.

From now on they will simply be called the Redskins.

:laughing: Too funny! :laughing:

what a cute dog, what breed is she exactly?

Jello is a pure bred American Pitbull Terrier. We adopted her a year ago from Angel City Pitbull Rescue in LA. She was a stray in So Los Angeles that was picked up by animal control. She had a pretty bad respirtory infection, so the shelter was going to put her down. ACPBR was there to get another dog, but whe they saw how sweet she was, they took her too. She was nursed back to health and then put up for adoption. We have have worked with her to get her over some of her shyness, and she is now a very outgoing and friendly dog. She has several dog friends that she likes to run with in our yards. She is also very popular with the kids at Mya's school, who all know her and pet her when they pass by her.

I have always liked pitbulls, and have only had problems with pitbulls that have had idiots for owners. They are very driven to please their owners and need to be socialized and trained, just like any dog. We are seriously thinking about possibly adopting another pitty when the time is right. She loves our cat, too. Cant say Minnie is totally thrilled with her, but she is warming up to her. She is not scared of Jello at all.

It's here! It's like Christmas when I was a kid! :grin: :grin:

My article on Roger... Play On, Roger Clyne. Go read it. Now.

It's a different type of article/interview for me. This was for two reasons. One, the interview took place in person. And two, I styled it after a Rolling Stone interview, where a lot of it is my own original writing, and then the actual interview afterwards.

And Roger's rep said, "This is exceptional!" and "Wow, what a great read." So I figure it came out well. :grin:

Now's your chance to get to know Roger and randomly listen to some songs through the videos. (My Jeff took several of the photos at a concert we went to the weekend after the interview.)

I'd like to announce that it is my 10 year anniversary at the agency I work for. I must say I have enjoyed every moment of it too. Working with people with developmental disabilities is a very rewarding job. Being part of their lives and helping them reach their goals is such a good feeling, and it makes me happy that the company I work for appreciates the work that I do... and they reward their employees for doing so. The recognition and reward dinner is next week, held at a beautiful place on the lake, I'm really looking forward to that, should be fun. :)

Well done, Laurie! Your job is not the typical 8-5 desk job in a cubicle. You have a job that makes so much difference in the lives of so very many, and that takes spirit, patience, and a very warm heart. I so love that I know you. (well, sort of.) :grin:
