Items of concern...

Of course, many of us visit particular blogs, often having favorites. Catman's Litterbox is one of my fave's. His timely topics and seeming ease of discovering items of interest to me often caused me to wonder how or where he found the item. Of course, he's a geek of sorts.
So when he hadn't posted for quite a while, yesterday I left a comment on his last post. Here is what was returned. Color me concerned.

Does anyone have any information about him?  Did he dump his Catbox? Is he on TDY in some undiscovered place on the planet?

Next up in the list of items to be concerned about... Good Old Googs.  Someone mentioned Googs is going to be mailing everyone about their new Privacy Policy and TOS. Got mine today. All things begin March 1, '12.  Probably time to find another host. Considering it, anyway. Re:

Is this email not displaying properly?

Dear Google user,
We're getting rid of over 60 different privacy policies across Google and replacing them with one that's a lot shorter and easier to read. Our new policy covers multiple products and features, reflecting our desire to create one beautifully simple and intuitive experience across Google.
We believe this stuff matters, so please take a few minutes to read our updated Privacy Policy and Terms of Service at These changes will take effect on March 1, 2012.
One policy, one Google experience
Easy to work across Google
Our new policy reflects a single product experience that does what you need, when you want it to. Whether reading an email that reminds you to schedule a family get-together or finding a favorite video that you want to share, we want to ensure you can move across Gmail, Calendar, Search, YouTube, or whatever your life calls for with ease.
Tailored for you
If you're signed into Google, we can do things like suggest search queries – or tailor your search results – based on the interests you've expressed in Google+, Gmail, and YouTube. We'll better understand which version of Pink or Jaguar you're searching for and get you those results faster.
Easy to share and collaborate
When you post or create a document online, you often want others to see and contribute. By remembering the contact information of the people you want to share with, we make it easy for you to share in any Google product or service with minimal clicks and errors.

Protecting your privacy hasn't changed
Our goal is to provide you with as much transparency and choice as possible, through products like Google Dashboard and Ads Preferences Manager, alongside other tools. Our privacy principles remain unchanged. And we'll never sell your personal information or share it without your permission (other than rare circumstances like valid legal requests).
Understand how Google uses your data
If you want to learn more about your data on Google and across the web, including tips and advice for staying safe online, check out
Got questions?
We got answers.
Visit our FAQ at to read more about the changes. (We figured our users might have a question or twenty-two.)

Notice of Change
March 1, 2012 is when the new Privacy Policy and Terms will come into effect. If you choose to keep using Google once the change occurs, you will be doing so under the new Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.
Please do not reply to this email. Mail sent to this address cannot be answered. Also, never enter your Google Account password after following a link in an email or chat to an untrusted site. Instead, go directly to the site, such as or Google will never email you to ask for your password or other sensitive information.

Bless God, God bless.

Pavlov and his dogs

Pavlov is known to have done many experiments with dogs...
Now the dotgov and city of LA is taking over where he left off.
Consider this: 
"...The exercises are designed to ensure the military's ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements, police said..."

Keep your hat low over your eyes and powder dry.
Bless God, God bless.

A Girl... but a Rare Lady

"...This group has welcomed me when I had absolutely nothing to offer them.

I was empty.

I was broken.

I need things I was to weak to even know I needed.

I came here desperate and searching..."

Read what she has to say about people and their behavior. If she doesn't make you feel proud of yourself,  you're missing something.
AGHG- you go, Girl!  Thank you for helping me see something I've walked by a million times and never noticed.

Candle Liting

So Lovely Lady has been ragging on me to get my buns busy here. (And we all know, if Momma ain't happy... blah blah...) So, as a form of self defense, we're back on the road to illiterary ignominy. Or something like that.
Now, for something a bit more serious-
Everyone knows who the Brady Bunch is- no, not that Partridge family twin. Those Criminals Stealing Gun Rights groupies.  Anyway, they're lighting a candle this Sunday, 8 January 12, to protest gun violence.  And right they should,  we all should. Every person should denounce gun violence, even those who're committing it. Especially them: each and every one should walk away carried by pall bearers. Weerd Beard  (  )  has come up with his version of the candle lighting and is encouraging all gun owners to light a candle against gun violence.  Since I am one of those terrorist guys who believes in God and the Bible and the Constitution, am a vet, an NRA member, drive a gas guzzling four wheel drive truck and tell tree huggers- especially AlGorey- to lick my ... wait, this' family oriented... and sure don't like the politics- or the politicians in- coming out of D.C. these days, I decided to post a picture or my DCP (that's 'Daily Carry Piece' for the uninitiated to my unorthodox- we can't call it English since I'm an American-lingo).
Without further much ado- here she is. Simple, old, and sure not elegant but she's steady and strong and American made- my Lady, Smith and Wesson model 469 carried in her Kirkpatrick Leather holster and packing 13 rounds of Glaser Pow'RBall Plus P in the grip and another 13 in the spare.
(emclicken to embiggen)
Remember- cops are only hours away in a donut shop when you need them in a coffee shop. Not that your safety is their concern- 'cuz it ain't. It's yours. So pack some heat for when the kitchen gets hot.
Bless God, God bless.
(Yes, I did do a spel-chek today, and am studiously ignoring all suggestions.)
