It is Not Easy!

Sometimes trying to juggle everything is darn impossible. I know people who aren't involved in dog rescue really understand how it all works and don't understand the work that goes into it but it takes everything in my power not to scream at them when they put demands on me. "I want you to bring this dog to my house tomorrow" Oh you do, good for you. Isn't going to happen! My favorite line from people is "well I guess you just don't want dogs adopted do you?". Yes, your right I should drop everything and forget about sleeping or eating which I barely do anyways and come to your beckon call. I know it isn't their fault and I try to explain to people how rescue works. We aren't a shelter, we are a bunch of volunteers (we make zero money) who have dogs living in our homes until they can find the right home, not just a home. 

We work, we have families, we have pets of our own, some of us have children and/or grandchildren. We do all this rescue stuff in between our regular life. Every dog that we get in takes a lot of work. First shelters from all over Ohio contact me and ask me to take this dog or that dog. I get a kill list (nice name huh?) of dogs who are in shelters and if they aren't taken out that week they will be dead by end of day friday! How is that for having something hanging over your head? You can't save them all but you scroll through a list of a 100 dogs looking at their sad eyes praying that they won't die but you don't have room for another dog so it isn't up to you but another rescue who maybe has room. It is not easy!

Mysterious Lights

It lights up and lures in the sky? This made me curious! According to the local newspaper report mysterious lights were observed in the night sky, and I wanted to look at me. Since it was very foggy in the last few days, I moved my discovery tour again. But tonight was a clear view! On the way through the dark alleys of the old town, I searched for lights in the sky, but I saw nothing. On the way I met people and asked if they had observed something. In fact, one reported a light-appearance at the museum. So go for it, to the mysterious place. Once there, I saw nothing again! Or is it? Since, there was something? Only a very short shone on it. I had no explanation for the phenomenon. And as I already thought I would have perhaps only everything conceited, I heard a buzz and hum that came closer... 

And it landed two flying objects with strange passengers. For a while I was able to observe unnoticed. That was a chatter and bustle. But then they noticed me, they were very very quiet. One of them came forward and said with sad eyes, that they had gone on the road to galactic general assembly through the dense fog. For days they would fly in a circle, if I could explain the way to Sirius them well. Oh yes, I could just keep heading south, just to the bright star in Orion, since the Sirius! So took the story hopefully a happy ending for the aliens and I have experienced an unforgettable adventure. I would gladly have invited her to my house and learn more about her life on their planet.

What is Operational Leasing?

Maybe you have already heard in the rent-a-car field about this term and you are not enough clear about what it means and how can it be useful to you, reason for which you're avoiding it. Hence here are a few details about this operational leasing and about the way that it can help you. This is a solution to purchasing a car for a good price or just for using it for a long period of time. By renting a car on operational leasing, from example from rent a car Bucharest, you practically have it available for a determined period of time, but long.

Then, at the end of the contract you can purchase it for a particularly advantageous and good price. When you're renting a car on operational leasing, you benefit from the rent-a-car company from motor vehicle liability insurance and CASCO insurance included, inspections and quality repairs performed on time, from unlimited number of kilometres and from a replacement car to the initial one in case of accident or failure of any kind.


Google is not a very reliable tool, by itself, for any kind of serious research, unless of course if you are in that particularly privileged position of having leisure time. Having said that, I was trying to look up some kind of discussion online regarding how the usage of the term “dude” crosses over gender lines in different social spaces - specifically, I have heard women call each other “dude” before, but I wonder what women call each other when men aren’t around? Most of the conversations I’ve found so far are (of course) male-centered, e.g. “is it okay for me to call a chick ‘dude’?”, etc. so, if you are a woman and you are reading this, do you all call each other something informal that is akin to or parallel in usage to “dude” but in fact different? As a postscript, let me suggest the filter of “besides ‘girfriend’”, which seems to have been indelibly co-opted by gay men. Thanks for participating!
