Sunday Morning Musings

I admit it, Shai Shai is spoiled. She likes to go out to eat with us (Rock Bottom is her favorite they have puppy ice cream) and wander through stores that allow puppy visits, but I absolutely refuse to dress her up in anything that doesn't serve as protection from the weather. Especially not in anything that says Biatch. I did take her to one of the pug meet ups in San Francisco and that was a real hoot but she hasn't been to any community events in a long time, San Jose is the opposite of dog friendly.

What is so important about colorable scroll bars? I was using the Redshift V2 theme and my scroll bar was the same graphite color as it is in any other application. I just downloaded the NASA Night Launch theme (and I'm going to play with the subskins), same thing. The new Firefox 3.0 rumors include that little tidbit and "intelligent hyphenation of text and automatic ligatures for web fonts." I'll alert the media.

Listening to the birds chirping in the morning is one of life's little pleasures. Outdoors where they belong. Unfortunately, if you live in Oregon, the birds are disappearing quickly due to environmental factors. This includes the meadowlark which is the state bird and the red-breasted robin, a personal favorite.

Pursuant to yesterday's rant about the security contractors, further investigation has revealed that they are treated no better than our wounded veterans when they get back. I guess it just goes to show that the little (as in not rich or powerful) people of the United States are as disposable as Pampers to those who aren't willing to serve, but want everyone else to do their dirty work for them. Sigh.

  1. Hi Deb, ahab here from If I Ran the Zoo. I have tagged you, along with the rest of our co-bloggers at If I Ran the Zoo, with a fun meme. (At least I think it's fun!) I'd love to learn some fun facts about you if you feel like sharing.

    Best to you.
