It's astonishing that we have gone backwards in terms of air travel, don't you think?

Ah, now it makes sense! I think we have something like that here too.

Now that you mention that, Katy, that it odd about air travel.
We seem to ride our airplanes into the ground, figuratively speaking of course, then complain about failures of 40 year old aircraft and abandon the notion of upgrading. Weird.

In everything else since the 70s there has been massive improvement/advancement. But in air travel? Nothing. It's very odd!

My wish for you is that you find friends in your area that share your sensible outlook on life.
Thank you for your very nice words and your kindness!

How does one owe me anything? I do not understand this. But some of the classmates do tell me their parents owe them. For what? What have they ever done to deserve anyone to owe them? This makes no sense.

Your former President, John F. Kennedy said this, "Do not ask what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." This is very true! Then replace the word "country" with the word "family." And both are very true.

If in any way I might be mature, it is from my parents. This is what they brought me to be. I owe my parents, my DA, my family, my new country, and my old country. I owe God the most for putting me in to the hands of my family. I owe the man who found me in the trash can, but we can not find him.

If I make any correct decisions, it is of Mamma and DA. I am learning to make correct decisions. This is very important.

I do not feel that I have common things together with my classmates. Older people do understand me much more than the younger people.

And this is fine and well for me right now.

Your friend,
~Cat

You might call it a bit. Major League Soccer was started in 1996 and has about 20 active teams. The New England team (the Revolution) is owned by the same group that owns the Boston Red Sox, one of the oldest baseball franchises.

The previous owner of the American football team The Cleveland Browns owns a British football team. In fact, many Browns fans feel that Randy Lerner's purchase of the Aston Villas in 2006 took so much of his attention away from the Browns that it contributed to the continued struggles of the Browns.

Although soccer is making inroads in the United States it will take a very long time, if ever, to replace American football. Seems like in this country the little boys play soccer but the grown-ups play football.

If we continue to have high school kids dying from concussions and other injuries playing school sports, soccer may gain as the preferred sport faster than we think it will. The Revolution often have a full house for attendance. So it is definitely growing here in the Boston market. But then Boston and the other five New England states love their sports and support all of their teams. Just look at the price of their tickets. Never an empty seat and tickets to see the Red Sox are the highest priced tickets of any of the ball park. They are on the brink of pricing themselves right out of the pockets of the fans that have supported them all these years. To go see just one game, a family of four needs more than $500 just for one night at Fenway Park.

I just got off the phone from a long conversation with a dog breeder I had been researching. I didn't think they had any dogs available until next Spring, but yesterday I saw she had a littler on the ground now.
She has one pup available from that litter. She just isn't sure if it will be a male or female and I want a female. I am hoping she decides the male would be a better fit for the family that had their deposit in.
She got my hopes up

Cane Corso.
It's a breed a researched fifteen years ago when I decided to get my Presa Canario, the one I put down last Christmas Eve. I like the direction that breed is going now and the breeder is even within driving distance.
It's going to be a long week waiting on her decision. The family in question wants a lighter dog for the wife to go running with and the female she has is on the larger side, plus has more of a dominant attitude that she's sure I would be more comfortable with.
Here's her site. Available - Casanova Cane Corso: Temperament, Health & Conformation
