Today Angel goes in for a teeth cleaning. I hope it goes easily for her, poor girl. She also needs a major toenail trim, since she’ll be under, and I’m not sure her pupils are straight in her iris. Vet will look at that too. 🙂

Magnetic Motor

You gotta love it when Blogger is down, eh? And I get a zillion multiple posts. Hopefully it’s fixed now.

Check out the link in the title (Magnetic Motor). Wow, Magnetic Motors. I sure hope this takes off. Perhaps it will, and not be supressed, as have been other alternate forms of power generation. Our world needs a new power source. One that is environmentally friendly. We are sucking this world dry with the current technology.


The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload,
And nobody’s gonna go to school today,
She’s going to make them stay at home,
And daddy doesn’t understand it,
He always said she was as good as gold,
And he can see no reason
Cos there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be shown

Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down


Well, it’s the first day of October. How weird is that. Everyone needs to keep their black cats indoors so no weirdos go stealing them. 🙁 I’m not a big fan of Halloween, but it’s a fun idea. I wore really dumb costumes when I was a kid, so I have issues with that, but otherwise it’s not so bad.

The website has been changed to the blue background. I probably need to clean up the HTML on my main site but no rush. Oh, and I have to change the menu items but I’ll get to that eventually, too.

I went to the Periodontist last night, and I have to get six teeth fixed up. My gums are receding really bad on two of them, and fairly bad on the other four. Oh joy. I guess I know what my December bonus will be paying for, if they don’t forget about it and we still get it. *sigh*

Agility Class Last Night

Our new goal in agility is… SPEED!

NADAC is a very fast venue, and Levi is… well, just not a fast dog. Especially on the contacts. So last night I asked the teach what we can do about it. She said we can start to use a treat to pull over the A Frame, to get him to go faster. A really yummy treat that I’ve ‘teased’ him with somewhat the week before. So I have to work on that.

We are also going to start to do some running contacts, although while making sure we have a stop in our repertoire still, so when I do need to cross in front of him on a contact I can. I think that’ll help a ton. Last night we worked on that, when his foot hit the yellow, I released him and we zoomed to the next obstacle! It was fun.

And his weaves are doing really well, too. I just need to remember to call the weaves early. If a jump is before them, I need to call the weaves when he’s on top of that jump, or even before that jump. If a tunnel is first, then when he’s in the middle of the tunnel. If a contact is first… I don’t think I’ve ever seen a contact before weaves, but if so, then right out of the contact spot. We’ll get there!
