Scarface, the dog.

So, yeah.   Putting  a sweater on the dog, probably not a great idea.   Not this particular dog anyway.  Maybe he did not like the color.

See, generally, handling your dog – putting a sweater on it – clipping its nails, cleaning its ears, teeth, etc., that’s got to be generally accepted by a dog, large breed or not.  This dog was not well-trained and likely thought that it was a leader in that “pack.”

Apparently, the dog had been adopted, and was only with the family for a month.  

Ban dogs!

Not Scarface. Upset because the pants don’t match?

Jowl.

img_2904Huh.

Saw this yesterday, thought it would be interesting to cook for new years day.   Apparently, its a southern thing – pork jowl with black eyed peas.  No peas for us.

Its going to be like the ox tail we did some time ago.

No Swimming, Beware Alligators.

Disney rep says company plans to ‘thoroughly review’ alligator signage after attack

A tragedy it certainly was – an absolutely adorable 2-year old drowned by a gator – but you’re in Florida.  At an inland lake.  You have to assume there will be alligators, yes?

Heard this AM on Good Morning America – “What do you think people in Florida know about alligators that other people don’t?”

Media to the lowest common denominator.
