Everyone was painting the face pink until the learned the history of Geo. Washington’s jockey.

She has gained a bad reputation with me, my friends, and my parents. If or when I have my Alice InWonderland Outdoor Valentines Day party, she will probably ride over on her scooter, dressed up as Alice or theCheshire Cat, (If she is told that it’s a costume party) and she’ll want to come and join the party. I’ve had severalparties before, and most of them have been ruined by her. Countless sleepovers and friend visits have been ruinedby her. Here are some examples of what she’s done:She turned on our water hose and threw water balloons at us, and my friends ended up going home wet in clothesthey weren’t supposed to mess up.My friends have had their feelings hurt because she called them “Fat” or said something else ugly.My parents always tell me that she’s a little girl and doesn’t mean it, but she’s really upset us and my friends don’t likeher. I figured a few ways to get her away from the party:Don’t even tell her about the party.If she shows up during the party chase her away with Flamingo Lawn ornaments while we’re playing WonderlandCroquet.She will probably realize it’s a party when cars pull up to the house, but I’m still not sure how to keep her away! Pleasehelp.I’m not sure she’ll believe we’re sick, and I don’t have the money to bribe her. Anonymous Reply March 3, 2012 at 7:09 am So your friends actually care what an 8 year old says? I’d tell her to go home and that she isn’t welcome at your
house. Threaten to call the fuzz if she don’t go home with her Barbie scooter. Problem solved.

I live in a townhouse style apartment but I’ll only be decorating the firstfloor. A few of my neighbors have already put lights up and their extension cords run through their doors or windows.Is this an okay method? I plan on buying a light socket adapter with two outlets for my porch light. I can plug two lightsets into that but I’ll still need an extension cord for the lawn lights and ornaments. There isn’t an outlet on theapartment exterior so how should I go about this? Any suggestions and/or tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks andhappy holidays.@thedonkey, Great and helpful answer. Thanks! Anonymous Reply March 11, 2012 at 9:16 am You can either run a power strip off the porch light outlet adapter or you can run the cord out of the window by using some insulation/weather stripping (which u can buy at home depot or something) or simply by laying an old towel down inside the sill so that the window can close most of the way and you aren’t losing heat. The downside to doing this is the lack of security, I would recommend that you unplug it and remove the cord each time u leave the house.

Because honestly, I have never understood this practice.Dogs, like their ancestors the wolves, are pack animals. In the wild, wolves are with their packs 24/7. Of course thereis the occasional lone wolf, but they are usually searching for new pack members. In captivity, dogs are just as eagerfor a pack as their cousins the wolf. Their pack, which is us, humans. It is mentally cruel, IMHO, to keep a dog awayfrom their pack. Especially if they are kept alone outside without even another dog. Sure, you MAY give your dog 1-2hours of attention a day, but compare that to the 12 hours your dog could spend laying next to you or under your feet,and that 2 hours is nothing.
If you are only going to keep your dog outside, why don’t you get a lawn ornament instead??So honestly, that is my opinion. I don’t understand why people keep their dogs outside. If you keep your dog outside,why? What is your valid excuse?BTW, working dogs, I’m a little more leniant on. Sure, a K9 officer may kennel his dog in outdoor runs at night, but thisis also an animal that goes to work with this officer every single day. Officers usually have 10-12 hour shifts. SO, thatlittle time spent kenneled outside is nothing.EDIT: Maybe people have excuses like “the dog is too big for the house” (I have a 90lb shepherd and a pup that will be100+lbs in a small 2 bedroom house that has a decent sized yard. We manage), “my parents don’t like dogs inside”,“Im allergic”, “the dog gets dirty, and we don’t want the house dirty”… If you have excuses like these, which in my mindaren’t really valid, why did you get a dog in the first place?? In my mind, dog’s don’t just need a couple hours of playand attention. They thrive on just being next to you. Laying in the same room, sleeping at the foot of your bed at night.Jack Shmitt, that is totally understandable. Our Husky was the same way. In the winter timer, you could not keep thatdog inside. He would sit at the door whining to go outside constantly Lorna W Reply March 2, 2012 at 11:12 am Outside dogs who insist on outside is one matter, but in places where weather gets down to -30 degrees, a shelter is not going to keep the dog from frostbite. I’m for companion dogs. I like my dogs with me and they seem to like it as well, When one has “pets”, they’re part of the family, and I wouldn’t leave my child out in 30 below weather, two-legged or four legged.

@lime_dude, Yes, I know. Should I just have the extension cord run through my window? lime_dude Reply March 5, 2012 at 9:31 pm Extension cords Chickka Reply February 25, 2012 at 6:11 amHelp me with a business name!?Can anyone help me create a name for a business that sells.Lawnie: water fountains; lawn ornaments; wooden swings; benches; hammocks; bird bathsHome Decor’shelves; wine racks; candles; tables; lampsPersonallotions; gift baskets; makeup; est.Householdcoffee maker; pots and pans; blankets; est.We also have a variety of different camping and outdoor supplies.I am stuck…..
