Wow...you guys sure killed the smile I had watching the video. Makes me think twice about posting future links. A little nerve sensitive????

Rocket, there was nothing wrong with the video. Just the name attached to it. Don't let something someone else may say stop you from finding more cute ones. At the price they are charging for their litters, I think they should take some of that money and use it to get rid of the "frog" part of the name of their kennels.

As I stated, I haven't a drop of French blood in my veins. But I picked up on that reference immediately, even before I began the video.

I grew up in an Italian neighborhood. And it was like living with Archie Bunker. Greaseball, Greezer, Wop, you name it and I heard it. But I can't ever recall hearing any of those words coming from me. Every nationality has derogatory names attached to their ethnic group, whatever it may be. Being part Native American, I find redskin very offensive. And that is one of the better names that have been tagged onto my ancestors. But it sure beats "Savage."

Nerve sensitive? No, I just don't like derogatory names for anyone. Someone used the term "Newfie" recently, no not you, and I didn't comment on it. I didn't want to see a trend.

I didn't even know that was derogatory, especially since I had a friend from Newfoundland that referred to himself as a "Newfie". I figured it was along the same lines as Yooper. Although the only time I've heard anyone besides him use the term they were talking about the dog breed.

Oh dear. RJ, that video made me smile too! Nothing in this was offensive to me at all, and I'm half Canuck.

BTW, I couldn't get the sound to work. Is it just me, or is it a soundless video?

More than a smile, I got a chuckle out of an email I just deleted from my inbox. It was one of those letters going around telling you a friend/relative/someone is in dire straits and needs your help and your money and bank account numbers right away or they'll die! It was...in French. Um, Comment dit-on en francais "spam".

Listening to Shrek growling about, "It's so simple to open these and get them soaking." Referring to the plastic containers I took to work yesterday with my lunch. I don't think he knows I heard him...

I'm not sure I understand. Was he quoting you in *that* tone of voice? The tone of voice that implies, "Yeah, easy for her?"

No, he's now regretting telling me to just put things in the sink, he'll get to them. I was fine with washing up my lunch dishes when I got home. But he said he wanted something to do, so just put them in the sink.

One had tomatoes, onions and spinach in it for my sandwich, the other coleslaw and I left the lids on so they would not dry out by the time he got to them. If I'm going to take the lids off and fill with soapy water, then I may as well finish washing them up.

Dawg, the sound is the best part. He has the cutest whimper.
