What I think is really scary and a public health threat is the violence PEOPLE do to pit bulls. WeRead More kill millions of them every year. They are tortured in fighting rings, look at what Vick did. Humans are a very dangerous breed. THere should be laws or something to protect the public--and animals--- from people.

#Kim, all the more reason for restrictions, such as spaying and neutering. Less animals to be hurtRead More in fighting pits or put in the pound, only to be put down.

@Danielle, the audible only works good on your smartphone or an MP3 player. You can use it at theRead More gym when reading may not be as convenient (try rowing while reading -- listening works). Or go for a walk outdoors while listening to a book... just be careful crossing streets. I believe there are pronunciations issues with the text-to-speech as it tries to simulate speech instead of being an actual recording like the audio books. Each has it's advantages.

@Danielle, thank you for pointing out that ebooks are available from the library. Here is the linkRead More to the digital media catalog for libraries in the Minuteman Library Network http://digital.minlib.net They have bestsellers, classics, how-to, etc. As well as downloadable audiobooks which you can listen to on your phone, mp3 player, etc.

OverDrive Media Console (http://omc.overdrive.com/) is an app you can install on most popularRead More devices that will assist you with downloading eBooks and audiobooks from your library. I happen to be part of the Minuteman Library Network, so I know it works there. I'm sure other libraries outside the network work with OverDrive as well. Thanks @Danielle for starting this post!

Mad as hell... April 22, 2014 at 11:28 pm
Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.
Savecritters....you lost the argument as soon as you wrote "...owned by countless movieRead More stars..." What the hell does that prove?
tribble April 23, 2014 at 06:53 am
Yeah, Miley Cyrus' pit bull killed her little doggie last fall. The other dog that just died...it'sRead More being covered up how it died. That's why all the articles that mention coyote say "allegedly".

Boss Hogg and Anthony. Thank you both. Seeing where it's coming from I'll take that as a compliment.

What?
Penquin April 21, 2014 at 11:39 am
Wrong blog Igor, but I do agree with your opinions on this particular blog.

For the record, Magic Johnson contracted HIV (not AIDS) through sex with a reported 10,000 differentRead More women. Do you actually believe you can only contract HIV though gay sex??? Christie, your comments are so ridiculously ignorant, that I’m almost willing to believe that you are putting us all on. I almost believe that there’s some poster who created this character of an extremely ignorant bible-thumping woman, and he is right now having a great laugh at how he’s put one over on us all. If that’s the case, then my hat’s off to you!
christie nicolle April 23, 2014 at 11:48 am
wait Hookerman - out of those 10,000 chicks, 1 of them slept with a homosexual -- frankly I heard heRead More was on the 'low down' but either way, his promiscuity got him. So my point is Salient! The bible warns that the wages of sin is death -- what more do you want? HAPPY EASTER!
ChristieD April 23, 2014 at 06:50 pm
Hookerman; thank you very much for differentiating me from ChristieN. I very much appreciate that.Read More Let me remind you, however, ChristieN's status as a "Christian" has endowed her knowledge on every possible situation where something is unknown. God must speak to her in some special way in those voices that she hears in her head (.....ChristieN; this is god, and I want you to spread the gospel of good news that Magic Johnson had gay sex and is going to hell........and by the way, judgment is a sin; WAIT, cut that one out....erase erase erase)

Definitely will add these to my long, long list of "to reads". Maybe I'll live longRead More enough to get to them all. Just finished an oldie but goodie ... but you know? The stories only stay with me for a while, I read so much that I forget what I've already read and after the first few pages, I get into it again and often continue since I liked it the first time around. There will never be enough hours in any day to read all I want to and thank goodness and God for Goodreads and, of course, my library and you, Danielle, for adding to my lists. Was offered a Kindle but know what? I really prefer to hold that book in my lap to read, plus I prefer to use my library ... it's FREE, for goodness sake, why would I pay to read anything but a newspaper? And, even that can be gotten at the library. If nothing else, I just love the smell of a library! (Sorry for my longwinded-ness ... just love, love books.)
Mamie Huggins April 20, 2014 at 08:37 am
Hey Anna - I'm a book lover too and use the library on occasion. But it's not FREE as you say, it'sRead More paid for by us taxpayers. Also, when I buy a book, especially by an unknown and/or local author, I'm helping that person to keep writing.
Anna Bucciarelli April 20, 2014 at 05:48 pm
Of course you're right Mamie but if I don't have to part with an additional penny from my pocket IRead More feel it's a treat. And you're right too about keeping authors writing I especially like books by new, first-time novelists who often surprise me with the wonder of their words.

Fake Boss Hogg. Kinda funny coming from a guy that picked "Almost Brilliant" as a handleRead More a week ago...
Notbricktrash April 22, 2014 at 01:04 pm
This guy is psycho I see all negative posts on this breed. Us all who are for the breed let's postRead More positive things. This guy has no life obviously to sit and pick apart a breed. My dad was a meter reader in the day he was attacked and bitten 9 times on different occasions. 2 of them were German sheps, rest were ankle biters. ALL dogs bite. My parents were ignorant with pit bulls I remember my neighbors bf had them in my yard when I was a kid and my moms screaming they are vicious get inside. (They were sweet dogs) that goes with them being uneducated about the breed. They witnessed my neighbors pit mauling the neighbors small dog (their dog was nice until the crack heads put him in a cage 24/7) they are like till recently they are dangerous blah blah blah and know what I educated them I now rescued a pit lab who is a big baby and whom my parents adore. I cross post animals all over and many are pit bulls. They say 1 of 600 finds homes. It's sad cause in my dad's years of meter reading not one pit bull attacked him. 2 days in a row I saw 2 pits running in and out of traffic on a main road by my house. Almost hit them. I got out of my car called them over (had no fear as if it were a smaller dog or a shep) they came to me I grabbed their collars and what did they do? They licked me. I'm in school to be an nj Animal control officer and an associates in vet tech and I can bet you in my life I will support the pit breed in some successful way. I will never hate the breed or judge them. I've got bitten by a smaller dog breed do I judge them? No. So educate before you discriminate
MARIA ESCOBAR April 22, 2014 at 06:00 pm
Thanks again Gina!! I could not have asked for more concise, clear cut corroboration for myRead More premise, than that which you have provided. Please keep it up as I pass these on to friends and we get a good laugh at the irony of it all.
